When it comes to putting together an Escape Bag, the single biggest mistake I see people make is they choose the wrong bag.
It should go without saying that you NEVER want a bag that looks like Rambo would carry it. You don’t want anything camouflage or anything that looks tactical.
Believe me, I love tactical bags and own many myself. I use them when I go to the shooting range, but they’re not what I use for my Escape Bag.
After all, during a crisis situation you never want to draw attention to yourself.
If your bag screams “survival gear” and a mob takes your bag, it won’t matter if you have the 37 lifesaving items in it.
So what bag should you use instead?
Well, after untold amounts of time researching and testing bags, I found what I believe is the perfect Escape Bag.
First, the bag is made out of canvas.
But not just any canvas, Martexin waxed canvas.
This special canvas is made in the USA and has been produced since 1930.
It’s woven so tightly during manufacturing that it’s wind and water resistant.
Obviously, if you ever have to use your Escape Bag during a hurricane or other downpour, you want your gear to stay dry.
What’s more, the bag comes with dual density foam in the shoulder straps to ensure comfort if you have to walk a long distance to get to safety.
And, the size of the bag is the right number of cubic inches (1,200) allowing you to carry the 37 items while keeping the weight down.
Remember, one of the most important parts of putting together an Escape Bag is making sure it’s not too heavy.
There’s a magic number when it comes to how many pounds you want in your Escape Bag and you never want to cross it.
I’ll tell you that weight number and where to get the Escape Bag I just described in a moment.
But before I forget, let me quickly share with you the critical knife and gun you want in your Escape Bag.
I can pretty much guarantee neither of these items are on your current list of survival gear…
