Backpacking Tips: How to Pack a Backpack
As a survivalist, you know that there’s a chance you are going to need to bug out and take off at a moments notice.
Sure, we don’t want to think it will ever happen to us, but the reality is that it can happen….and you’ve better be ready.
The problem is that we can’t bring every.damn.thing. with us when we bug out.
The objective of packing a BOB or backpack the right way is to be able to carry all the essentials in the lightest possible way. By doing this, you have everything you need with you without having to struggle with a heavy load on your back.[tps_header]What should you bring?[/tps_header]

However, carrying less weight does not imply on compromising your safety, as it must always comes first. Make sure to keep in mind these backpacking tips from REI’s YouTube channel.
