So what goes inside a kit bag? This module is all about redundant, yet space-saving survival gear. Rather than the small sleeping bag of your BOB, you’ll have a space blanket. Rather than several water-filled canteens, you’ll have an empty hydration bladder and disinfection tablets. This kit should be rounded out with small items like lighters, compasses, folding knives, cordage, first aid equipment, and a small metal cup for boiling. A few high-calorie snack bars are perfect for the kit bag. This kit will be strapped to your body, independent of your bug out bag, in the event you have to abandon the BOB.
