INCH means I'm Never Coming Home. GOOD means Get Out Of Dodge.
These bags are built with just that idea in mind. Whatever you are carrying will be what
you have to manage your survival with. These bags are generally the heaviest of the different
types of bags. My interpretation of a bag like this has many different tools and items for long
term survival. Besides the items you may carry in a bug out bag, here are some things you
may wish to consider for this type of bag.
A camp axe.
Entrenching tool (E-tool).
Increased amount and size of cordage. (In an INCH bag I will carry 25-50 ft of light
climbing rope and a few carabiners as well as a rescue 8).
Bigger cooking pot/utensils. Include extra seasonings.
More changes and variety of clothing.
A more comprehensive fishing and trapping kit.
Firearm repair kit (extra springs, parts that would normally wear out)
as well as extra ammunition and magazines.
I would include a deck of cards and some dice, for entertaining yourself during any
There is no limit to the types of things you may want to carry. But there is a limit to
HOW MUCH you can carry. Make sure your choices are sensible and serve a purpose. Just
like in other bags, I try to make sure that everything I carry is multi use and a necessity.
