  • Includes a PDF file. (.docx and .odt files also available)
  • Free lifetime updates to any future versions of the Emergency Load Out Guide for BOBs.
  • There are 6 parts to the ELG. This download is for the BOB. Each ELG provides checklists, packing tips, emergency guidelines on using load outs, how-to walk throughs, and more. 

This Emergency Load Out Guide provides a checklist of must have items for any Bug Out Bag. A BOB should have enough supplies to allow for a 3 day trip from danger to a predefined rally point. This guide will clearly explain exactly what items to pack. It is non-idealistic in the fact that it does not require a tent or 3 gallons of water. You should expect that bugging out is not going to be easy. You may need to filter water along your route, you may come upon a disturbance and have to end a life so you can survive, it may rain and you may get wet so you’ll need to know how to make a fire quick. The BOB will provide the means to make potable water, defend yourself, and start a fire. It’s a bag used when the unexpected happens and you are not home or when you are home and you don’t have the time or ability to bug out with more substantial supplies like those provided in an INCH load out. The BOB should be stored in your vehicle, work locker, or other secure storage site. Once retrieved it can be worn during egress or loaded into your vehicle in the event your vehicle is disabled or multiple nights of traveling are needed.

AKA: 3 Day Bag, 72 Hour Bag, Get Out Of Dodge (GOOD) Bag.

Purpose: Supplies you with means to travel mid-range distances (24-72hrs) from a non-permissive environment or compromised homestead to a secure rally point or Bug Out Location (BOL).


  • Use the guide to select the right bag.
  • Follow the checklist as you buy or find each item
  • Layout the load out and plan how you will package the items in your bag following our tips for quick-access.

  • Train, practice, and know how to use each item in your BOB.
  • Customize your BOB with optional supplemental Items.
  • Follow guidelines for altering the bag to fit your locale, seasonal weather conditions, and current threats.
