Emergency Grab n Go Bags Explained + our bags opened and shown – 72 hour Emergency Prepping Bag UK

These bags will support you for 72 hours if something major happens (e.g. earthquake, war, flooding, nuclear strike, etc.) and it becomes unsafe to leave your house or you need to leave your home urgently (but want to guarantee you can drink fresh water, eat, stay warm and shelter).

Before we start, many people will think these are stupid, a waste of money, etc., and hopefully, they’re right. We hope we never have to use them, but we see them as an insurance policy that might someday save our lives or make an extremely stressful event slightly less stressful. It seems worth it to us. You can also use the majority of these packs for weekend camping trips, etc., so it’s not a complete waste of money.

It’s important to have these ready in a location that the whole family is aware of. Also, ensure you keep food and drink regularly checked.
In general, survival requires building shelter and having water, so base your kit on that; everything else is a bonus. Be careful not to get too excited and order loads, and keep checking the weight of your packs; there is no point in building a kit if you cannot lift it or walk with it for several miles, also ensure each kit has a mix of essentials in case you get split up or similar.

Warning: Locking knives / Guns etc are dangerous and often are illegal to carry around for no reason. Don’t be an idiot with them and check the law for each item you purchase!

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
