Hi! I need some help rationalising the contents for a Get-Home-Bag. I ask because almost all resources on the web centre around firearms (a big no-go in the EU), and cater to those that have dozens of kilometres to cover to get home. The average city dweller in an EU city has maybe 5-10 kilometres to get home, but often relies on public transport (which would in a worst-case-scenario not be available). Basically I think the contents could be simplified considerably, and I would break it down to: Food Water - 1 litre should be plenty considering the short distance to be covered, plus we need to keep the weight to a minimum. Snacks such as musli bars - just simple things to help stave off hunger and keep energy and morale up. Survival Being stranded and having to survive off the land isn’t really a concern, so this will be very truncated. Fire - a lighter or some matches would suffice. FAK - the contents of which are a toughy, I doubt a tourniquet would be necessary, so I think it would be sufficient to basically go with an FAK intended for a car. Some paracord is always handy. A mini-sewing kit Goggles and dust-mask - sounds stupid, but chances are you’ll be going through smoke or tear-gas / pepper-spray as a result of whatever disaster or civil unrest results. Paper map. Comfort A compact poncho, single-use would be fine. A shmemagh. Work-gloves. Tissues. Wet-wipes. Tools A knife, nothing special but needs to be legal. A pry-bar, preferably with a glass-breaker tip. Torch. Powerbank. Cash. I think that should cover it, but I’m certain I forgot something, so I would be very happy for any input.
