Bug-Out Gear for Travelers

Most people in the survival and preparedness community spend a great deal of time and expense to outfit themselves with quality bug-out gear for an urban crisis. All of that changes when you board a commercial flight for work or pleasure and the majority of the well-planned kit gets left behind due to travel restrictions.

Discover what emergency gear to have in your pockets along with critical first-aid kit items, nutritious no-cook foods, a carry-on bug-out bag and how to dress for egress. Additionally, there are anecdotes from real-world situations, a checklist of practical items for post-arrival at your destination and low-tech measures for securing your gear at the hotel or in a rental vehicle.
