    Harsh Bag

    Hi there.. I just want to share something about one of the survival bags. The Harsh Bag. The ‘Hazmat’ or ‘Harsh Bag’ is designed to allow you to survive in case of a NBC – nuclear, biological or chemical attack. Toxins or radioactive substances are present in the air either from a dirty bomb or other air/water agent deployed. A chemical reactor could have exploded. Whatever the reason, there are many dangers that can occur and you are at risk quite quickly. While not something people like to consider on a day to day basis, the threat of such an attack is always present.Your Hazmat/Harsh Bag will should include ● Rubber gloves ● Hazmat Suit ● N95 Mask ● Adult Diaper ● Gas Mask All of these objects come together to form a separate environment for your body and allow you to survive extremely hazardous regions. The rubber gloves protect your hands and ensure an effective seal over the hazmat suit where you may be lifting or moving objects that could damage your suit. The Hazmat suit will protect the entirety of your body from radioactive substances and biological weapons or threat. The N95 mask and gas mask will ensure the air you breathe is clean and safe. The Adult diaper will ensure that you can excrete safely without having to leave the safety of your suit
  2. People often don't consider the health side of bugging out, or even bugging in for that matter. Sure you have your top of the line gear with MOLLE versatility and swiveling coffee maker attachment but can that gear save you from an iodine deficiency? Illness and other health concerns should be at the very top of your list of most dangerous things that are likely to occur to me. If chronic illness isn't at the top of your list your either lying or not human. So here are 3 things you should consider preparing or even implementing into your life now. You'll be sure glad you did in an emergency. 1. Vitamins & Supplements In a country where the average lunch always includes fries and serving size is of buffet proportions, people are often malnourished in many areas of their diet. Yes, even for a first world country many of us are malnourished and deficient. The proof is in the pudding, and the gravy, and the fast food, and the triple cheeseburger combo with fries and vanilla icecream, and the... well, get the idea. Vitamins are not only a great source of energy and replenish the parts your diet where your missing out, but in an emergency situation where your relying on whats in your BOB or your own food supply having vitamins is important. Those Mainstay Food Rations you may have packed up may be good for a while, but eating only that for a month of more without other sources of vitamins in a demanding environment can prove debilitating. Good non-synthetic well rounded multi-vitamins are ideal. Supplements are great too, the challenges of an emergency can be felt mentally as well as physically, that's why supplements like Saint Johns Wort for depression and Ashwanganda for focus can be invaluable, especially in convenient pill form. 2. Homeopathic Medicine Some may be skeptic of homeopathic medicine, but to curtail your doubts I present you a study done by the government of Switzerland. Homeopathic medicine often is often times packed in small cylindrical bottles with dozens of doses. Perfect for BOB's. The medicine can be used to cure the symptoms of a a variety of ailments both physical and even mental (emotional unbalance such as excessive fear). Homeopathic medicine is based on the same principal where snake venom cures snake bite victims, theirs a lot of interesting science behind it and its been around for a very long time. Whats great about it is you can get homeopathic medicine for a variety of of symptoms and store it in your medic bag where it doesn't take up much space at all. 3. Physical Fitness In the prepper community, its often forgot about the importance of fitness and physical endurance. If your serious about prepping, you need to be serious about being in shape. It might be time to start eating right and going to the gym as well as putting yourself on supplements and really getting in shape. If you expect to haul that 50 lb pack dozens of miles as well as live and hunt and thrive and you weigh 220 lbs with a 40 inch waist you have something coming to you. It's called survival of the fittest for a reason and the importance of strength and fitness can't be stressed enough. You may be fit enough to Get Out Of the Dodge, whether it be hurricane, earthquake, etc. But in situations which many of the people in this community prepare for, being physically fit will be your priority. Back in the old days a father didn't care if his daughter brought home a black guy or a why guy or an asian guy, but someone big enough to protect her from anyone that could threaten her. In essence its important to be in shape, physically and mentally. An able body means an able mind and both are important in any situation. So what should you be packing? Well if your health is important, if you have prescriptions you should have what you need, be mindful of expiration dates. Also if you wear glasses you should have spare pairs or even consider getting LASIK. So consider these three things if your considering bugging out, bugging in, or just living your life day to day trying to become a healthier person. I hope you find some of this information useful or are inspired to become healthier, because you never know what the future might hold.

    hey everyone, I am fairly new to the survival preparation and have just finished my first BOB and was wondering your thoughts on it and if i am missing anything serious. contents include; 1. rio grand backpack 2. military poncho/tent 3. first aid kit 4. combat survival tin ( compass, whistle, candle, fishing kit, waterproof survival instructions, 25 wind & waterproof matches, pencil, sewing kit, multi use flexible wire saw w/split rings (can be used as a bow saw or snare wire), water tablets, safety pins, fire lighting flint and striker and multifunctional knife w/fold out scissor) 5. camp towel 6. survival bag (aka hypothermia bag) 7. 36 hour survival candle 8. folding stove 9. 2 canned heats for stove 10. unbreakable mirror 11. 3 MRE's 12. 6 emergency water puches 13. canteen 14. metal canteen cup 15. 3 packs of water purification tablets ~100 gallons can be purified 16. spork 17. 6 meal replacement bars 18. kobar combat knife 19. bandana 20. mini mag flashlight 21. 6 AA batteries 22. 4 light sticks 23. US army issue survival manual 24. alcohol wipes 25. letherman 12 use multi tool 26. 6 tent stakes 27. crank powered radio 28. 100 feet of para cord 29. gloves 30. 3 emergency blankets 31. sabercut pocket chainsaw 32.

  4. How many days of food is in your bag? I personally, have an engineers bag full of survival bars, each bar has 3600 cal. in it, each enough for one day. The engineer bag holds nearly a months worth of bars, but the bag weighs 24lbs. So that's 24 extra lbs in the BOB. The question I have, is how much food do you carry, and why. Whats the ideal amount? I don't believe in the "3 day pack" philosophy because that system is based on the military and a soldiers ability to resupply. Essentially its an assault pack style, just enough to complete your mission. But if the SHTF, we might not have a resupply. How does your food system work?

    Medical Kit Prep

    Dr Bones/Nurse Amy and Joe Knight, Just wondering what your thoughts were on what a good basic medical kit should have for: 1) Everyday Carry (What would be small enough to fit in a small day bag or purse that would contain enough essentials to get by until a person could get to their BOB or main medical kit) 2) Bug Out Bag (Same deal except having a bit more room to put a few more items inside) 3) Basecamp/Bug In Kit (The ideal mostly complete kit that would cover most life threatening emergencies and minor situations that if curtailed early can prevent medical emergencies.) Thanks for your time and thoughts. ZEN
