When it comes to putting together an Escape Bag, the single biggest mistake I see people make is they choose the wrong bag.
It should go without saying that you NEVER want a bag that looks like Rambo would carry it. You don't want it covered with patches giving away that you're a prepared person.
Believe me, I love "Rambo" tactical bags and own many myself. I use them when I go to the shooting range, but they’re not what I use for my Escape Bag.
After all, during a crisis situation you never want to draw attention to yourself.
If your bag screams “survival gear” and a mob takes your bag, it won’t matter if you have the 37 lifesaving items in it, right?
So what bag should you use instead?
Well, after untold amounts of time researching and testing bags, I found what I believe is the perfect Escape Bag.
First, the bag has 7 compartments so you've got more than enough room to pack all the crucial gear and items you'll need in an emergency situation, with space to add any extras you want.
Second, the compartment unfolds completely in half.
You can strategically fill your bag and evenly distribute the weight of your gear without worrying if you'll be able to access a crucial item when you need it.
Plus, it has a sturdy reinforced top handle.
This allows you to quickly grab your bag and move out in an emergency without having to stop and slip it over your shoulder… and provides an easy way to drag you to safety if you're injured and unable to move yourself to safety.
And, the size of the bag is just right allowing you to carry the 37 items while keeping the weight down.
Remember, one of the most important parts of putting together an Escape Bag is making sure it’s not too heavy.
There’s a magic number when it comes to how many pounds you want in your Escape Bag and you never want to cross it.
The magic weight number and the exact type of Escape Bag are all in the free book I'm going to send you, The Escape Bag Blueprint: 37 Items You Must Have to Survive a Crisis.
