First Aid Shopping List For Bug Out Bags

This first aid shopping list will give you a good versatile first aid kit you can keep in your bug out bag, get home bag, and your car as well.

This can be slimmed down and tweaked to hit size goals, but it covers all of your most likely injuries and forgoes a lot of luxury items that other guides may recommend. I consider everything in here to be necessary and have organized the list based on injuries.

It can be slimmed down to fit smaller kits as you decide what you think you’re more or less likely to need. Let’s jump into my recommendations. I put together my list based on what I would pick. I value quality, but I also value keeping costs low. My picks are a blend of that.
