Weapon/ammo, Knife, flashlight/batts, 1st aid, food, water or means of purification, means for making fire, spare socks!, small binos/monocular, any meds you would need.
Down and dirty quick list but there are so many variables that 10 is unrealistic. My stuff is a bit more in depth than just the list, some folks will need bug spray if you live in the south for example. A blanket or 2 would make sense in the cold north etc.

Sootch made a video on his Gun & Gear Reviewer channel that's filled with useful ideas and some recommendations for suppliers of the gear.

Lotsa ammo!

I get stuff together during hurricane season but I don't have a "bug out" bag. I think someone has been watching too much Doomsday Preppers. The world isn't on December 22nd. The Aliens aren't coming on independence day.

What is going to happen so quickly that you need to leave in less than 20 minutes? (beside a tornado,but then wouldn't you go into your cellar or something like that?)

If hoards of people are heading your way I'm sure that you would know and have ample time to pack and leave. Maybe I'm wrong but so far I haven't seen a reason to bug out.(except for a hurricane evac but even then you still have days to get your crap and leave) Hell maybe I'm wrong. IDK

Could someone enlighten me on a situation that requires a 20 min or less evac?

So... you KNOW it's the wrong forum, but you go ahead and do it anyway?

Hmmmm... if this was my site, instant ban.

When you start a sentence with " I know it is the wrong _____ but.." that immediately should tell you "Stop and find the correct forum"

House fire.

I'm not sure what is in your BOB, 72 hour Bag or whatever you want to call it but amongst my stuff is a flash drive inside a waterproof/crush resistant case. This flash drive is a backup to the backup I keep in my safety deposit box and is updated monthly.

I know people who have gone through nightmares with insurance companies trying to recoup payouts on their insurance; their claims were legitimate but they had a difficult time coming up with the receipts, pictures and paperwork to support large insurance claims. This drive also contains pictures of pets in case during a fire they got out but ran away. It also contains copies of birth certificates, our passports, driver's licenses, social security cards, titles to our cars, taxes, deeds to properties, our wills, etc.

I could easily have this drive in my nightstand but in my BOB seems easier.

It took a weekend of home scanning to put together - I showed it to my agent who showed it to an underwriter and basically if I have a house fire I will have no problem getting the maximum payout on my insurance.

A BOB covers a lot more ground than just a zombie attack.

To the OP:

Did you catch the stickied thread on BOBs? It's very good.

A 72 BOB can be useful for a number of reasons:

House fire, wildfire, break in, crime near your area, sporting event getting out of hand, tornado, riot, nuclear, chemical or bio weapon event, pandemic, mother in law drops by unexpectedly the list goes on and on.

I'll assume you have a quality bag.

1. 10 liter dromedary bag, re-fill it every 6 months, with hanging hook, tubing, mouth pieces ect

2. Leatherman/Gerber/Sog quality multi tool

3. Glock + 2-3 mags

4. Cash. Lots of it.

5. Copies of important documents, credit cards, passport, birth certificate ect. DONT HAVE PHYSICAL COPIES. use truecrpty on a thumb drive so if someone steals the bag they dont steal your identity.

6. Change of cloths. Get quality smartwool socks, no cotton.

7. First aid kit. All the normal stuff, sanitizing kit, bandaids, antibiotic ointment, blister kit, ect.

8. Quality flashlight + batteries. I like surefires.

9. Radio + batteries. You need to be able to hear the outside world.

10. hygiene kit. toilet paper, powder, body wipes, soap, hand sanitizer.

Id say thats the more important 10, but it really does depend on where you are and what youre preping for.

Food, a map, a compass, a cook kit, a prepaid cellphone + charger, lighters, a sleeping bag, and a big knife are also pretty important, but you'd still be ok without them.

ALTERNATE METHODS

For the Mac

.dmg files with the Disk Utility in Utilities64bit password protected encryption. Go to open the .dmg file so configured and you are prompted for a password. No tickee, no laundry. Password mounts the file as though a drive and everything in a file or folder are revealed and available.

Universal PC or Mac,

Encrypted .PDF files.

Scan your stuff up and paste it to an MS Word or Pages document and export to .pdf, take the encryption option. Needs password to open or no get.

MS Excel:

Can copy your essential numbers, DL #, insurance policy, etc. and can probably paste in images.

Save the file with a password. Will then NOT open without one. Data safe. MS Excel on the Mac or PC.

All these options are free if you have the platform and software. .PDFs are probably the best, work everywhere .pdf does.

Seeing as the owner of this site has a BIG RED BANNER at the top of that forum saying DON'T DO exactly what you did?

I'd say he was serious about it too.
And seeing as your post has since been moved (by a moderator, not me)... I guess there's someone else who did as well.

Don't start crying just because I pointed out your obvious d-baggery.

Lastly... if we ever have a EOTWAWKI... it'll most likely be caused by d-bags who figure the rules don't apply to them and just do whatever they want. Like you.

+1 .... well sort of

I hike and camp a lot so I have a few Backpacks already packed, ready to go for anything from a 3 day/50 mile hike on the Appalachian trail, to a hike out of town because some SHTF even happened.

Sorry but I laugh at some of the BOB I seen out there and the guys who use them.

1) Some are crazy short on food. A pound of food per person per day should be the rule of thumb. If you really think you are going to walk 50 miles on 6 granola bars for a family of Four you are sadly mistaken. You will turn into a zombie looter on day two.

2) Some people are retarded tactical gearheads. I need a Maxpedition backpack with zero lumbar support, and I need to carry 60 pounds of useless and redundant gear, along with my 1911 and 6 mags and my AK with 14 mags. Yea sure tubby, let's see you walk a mile with that let alone 50. Seriously, to a hiker or even those in the military, these Geardo BOBs have the mentality of an Airsofters in the firearm world.

What you need to do is check out what "REAL" hikers do. People how have traveled long distance with just what is on their back. Do research on ultralight hiking, people who have done long distance trips or expeditions, even modern day hobos, and get an idea of what they carry with them.
