How to choose a good backpack called emergency, BoB or 72-hour.

  • Choose a backpack with several compartments.
  • Capacity of +/- 30 litres. (Medium size)
  • It should be organised in a clear order, the different pockets and compartments should be thought of like rooms in a house, each having its own function.
  • Water-fearing objects should be placed in zipped freezer bags.

Examples of backpacks:

  • Toilet paper in watertight envelope with hook.
    • Hanging it avoids laying it on the ground. It therefore remains more hygienic and does not get wet.
