Light Bugout Bag
Build the lightest bugout bag possible

There's a lot you could carry in your bugout bag, but too much
may kill you. How to pack an ultra-light bugout bag that will
ensure your survival. Start with an essential backpack, the
lightest ever backpacking stove, light-weight water purification
method, and prepare to survive.

  • Lightest backpack:

  • Lightweight Bivvy: Made of mylar, a bivvy is the lightest
    kind of covering you can get in the shape of a sleeping bag.

  • Tiny Cooking:

  1. Ultra light Backpacking Canister Camp Stove with Piezo
    Ignition. Just 3.9oz, the Ultra Light Backpacking stove,
    pictured immediate right has had more than 670 4.5-star
    reviews! You will appreciate this totally inexpensive starter
    stove as the most important piece of hiking equipment to
    own. Believe it or not, you can have it shipped to you for
    under $6 and with included shipping. Works wtih Coleman
    butane/propane mix fuel.
  2. Solo Stove: The Solo Stove only weighs 9 oz and eliminates
    the need to carry fuel canisters - a great way to lighten your
    loadForget the fuel with Solo Stove. Cook meals with nothing
    but the twigs you collect on your journey, eliminating the
    need for heavy, expensive, polluting petroleum gas. It's easy
    to light, fast to boil and clean to use. You'll gasify your
    wood: a unique gasification and secondary combustion
    process lets achieves a highly efficient and more complete
    burn on this stove. This means you'll use fewer twigs to
    achieve a boil. It also means less smoke while cooking.

  • Solo stainless steel pot: Travel light with the stainless
    steel. It also nests inside most pots leaving you with more
    space in your pack.

  • Light Load Towel. The Light Load Towel is more absorbent
    than cotton and microfiber. The wickable fabric so keeps you
    from freezing in cold activities. Best of all it doubles as a
    firestarting material and can supplement to your first aid kit
    as gauze.
