Survival Gear: My Get Home Bag

This video is a quick look at the contents of my Get Home Bag. This is a companion video to the video I recently did called Get Home Bag – Concept which can be seen here: A Get Home bag is really nothing more than a large Survival kit filled with the survival gear you need to get home in an emergency.

    Was there a compass? I might have missed that but a compass would be pretty useful.

    My problem with the "Get Home Bag", is that in my country I wouldn't have shit for self-defense to put in it. It's illegal to go around with firearms in that way (must be in a secure container, with ammo seperately), pepperspray is BARELY legal (need a police permit), telescope batons are completely prohibited except for military and law-enforcement…let's see, the knife you have there, would be illegal to carry in most situations…it could perhaps, under doubt, be legal to have in the backpack if considered a camping tool (then it must be an outdoors man's knife, not something you clearly see is a COMBAT knife)…I suppose, to have the extra weight I could put a few rocks in there, that I could throw in an emergency situation 😛

    Nice setup! I'm looking for a good radio pouch for my bag, does the external pouch on your bag come separate or is it sewn to the bag? Thanks for the videos!

    just throwing this out there. the expandable baton "asp" is illegal to carry in most states. it is considered a "prohibited weapon" getting caught carrying it here in PA will get you locked up. it makes no sense to me, i can carry a gun but not an ASP. don't want to see peeps getting into trouble over something like that..I have the same ASP by the way great piece of gear…..but it stays at home waiting for any unwanted late night visitors.

    Good bag.  I didn't see any food in there.  I will need lots of energy to walk home from my office/work area.  I keep 2 cliff bars, some granola bars, some mre snacks.  Just my 2 cents.

    Didn't see any food in there, maybe some granola bars or somthing. Also do you have a detailed breakdown of your own bug out bag? I'm searching for it on your channel. I like many others need to do a major overhaul on my bag. I know people with 100 pound bags that run out of breath crossing the street.

    JJ, additional areas you might consider discussing are your choice of bag and packing plan. I was curious about your over-the-shoulder bag and why you didn't opt for a backpack. That said, good food for thought. Thanks.

    First off, I think your contents are great. I do believe the biggest downfall of the bag IS the bag itself. I think you would be better served by a traditional backpack.

    I carry my pistol and spare magazines on me (CCL), a folder in my pocket and a Fresnel lens in my wallet. I consider these part of my EDC. Although I have a safe in my vehicle for temporary use, I don't leave firearms in my car overnight.

    I've used a handheld CB before. Kept it in my car just in case something happened and my phone stopped working. On a good day. It's range was about a mile. Then trucker CBs also diminish the range of a handheld. Like talking in an auditorium full of people with your lowest voice. I know you are aware of this. Just thought I'd put it out there for others to understand. I like some of the contents in your bag. Makes me want to put mine on a diet.

    Nice kit man… Very well thought out… 18.5 lbs is a good weight… Mine GHB started out at 35lbs then I down sized to about 20-25lbs but now it's down to 15lbs… I had to give up a good bit BUT the items I have in kit now are solid and well rounded…

    Good video. My suggestion is upgrading to a HAM radio. The HAM test is easier to pass now that they have dropped the morse code requirement. You can study online for the test. It is easy since they pick the test questions from a pool of about 300, and you can study the actual questions. The advantage of a handheld HAM radio is that you can probably hit at least one repeater with it. The repeater retransmits your signal at a higher power, large antenna, on a hill. The UV5r is $42 or so

    New York City … the land of ILLEGAL! I went through my pack again and I'm thinking that my attatched molle deployment bag, while not big or to heavy, may be throwing off the balance of the whole pack and that's why it feels so heavy at only 13lbs. But it adds about 1/3 more needed storage space. Maybe I need a different pack, everything in one unit. As usual, thanks JJ!

    A liter of water in a stainless bottle and a water filter to refill might work. Plenty of water laying around in WA.

    Hey JJ, I just weighed my get hm bag, 13.1 lbs – without any water. I'm cutting it close here! I was surprised, don't really have any large items in it. Would like to keep it under15 lbs., but once I add water that ain't gonna happen.

    You know I don't remember the manufacture or the model. But it is just a cheap mesh net style hammock. I got it off of Ebay for $12.00 or so I think. Just put in lightweight or net hammock and a ton of them will come up!
