By: on April 21, 2014

My plan for an emergency, catastrophic event, or Lord of the Flies throwdown? Total, balls-to-the-wall bug out. I recommend the same for you. First step: click here and enter to win the functional, fully-loaded, self-proclaimed Lexus of emergency preparedness, OuttaGEAR's 4.0 Bug Out Bag (a $750 value)!

This giveaway is open to US residents only.

About the OuttaGEAR 4.0 Bug Out Bag

The 4.0 Bug Out Bag packs the best and most utilitarian of outdoor and survivalist gear into a 5,200 cubic inch Teton Explorer backpack. With enough equipment and food to support 1 person for 3 to 5 days, OuttaGEAR's emergency compadre will serve you even better than a roll of duct tape served MacGyver when the other shoe drops and the fit hits the shan. Store one in your home, car, or at work, and if the hand basket ever arrives you'll be fully prepared to send it, empty and beaten, right back to hell.

Don't want to wait for the end of days to make use of your pimped out bug out stash? I don't blame you. And that's another perk of OuttaGEAR's BOB: it was designed to perform just as effectively on normal camping, backpacking, and hunting excursions as it was to sit idly by, waiting for the world to go dark. Contents of the 32-pound stockpile include:

  • 1 x Teton Explorer 5200 cu/in backpack with inner frame. Designed for long-distance backpacking and to provide maximum comfort and stability.
