Two Essential Kits Most Preppers Overlook
Two Kits That Are Essential
You then put it all that gear, etc. into one “grab and go” bag or pack … and call it the “relevant-name” kit. You now have a single source way (a kit) to help with your security, shelter, water, and food survival needs.

The Patrol / Guard Duty Kit
This kit is a light weight kit that will allow you to be extremely mobile, yet well-armed when patrolling your property line, or while stationed at an LP/OP (listening post / observation post).
This is also the kit that you would “grab and go with” when you know that a threat is approaching …

The carrier that I use for this pack is the “US PeaceKeeper Rapid Deployment Pack” …
The Foraging Kit
… The foraging kit is essentially the parameter patrol / guard duty kit, with a few extra tools specific to the task of foraging. You’ll need a medium-sized backpack to accommodate the extra items, needed … just about any pack will work …

Add a couple of large outdoor trash bags, bolt cutters, a pick-gun for picking locks (nice but not essential), Crowbar, Claw-hammer, quality multi-tool and gloves to protect your hands …
