Inside of my bug out bag, which rides in the back of my Xterra, is a smaller more portable bag that has all of the core survival goods in it. It is small enough and light enough that it can be removed and you could make a run for it without being unduly burdened.

A few other things that I know I have forgotten
I know that sound like a lot of stuff, but it fits in a very compact bag. The bag, which has rigid sides, is maybe 12″ long, 10″ wide and 11″ deep. In a pinch it has pretty much everything I need to survive for a while in it.
Now the big bag that it came out of is a different story. That bag has everything in it. I could survive indefinitely or possibly start a new civilization with the contents of that one. Even so that bag weighs in at probably only about 45 pounds and it even has wheels.
What’s in your wallet?
