The Echo-Sigma Get Home Bag is an all-inclusive survival bag that’ll either get you home, or get you as far away from home as possible – depending on which you’d prefer.
Commonly referred to as a “Bug Out Bag”, the Echo-Sigma is the sort of kit you want in the garage, trunk or shed on the off chance that one day, one of these Farm-Animal-Flu, Ebola or H5N-WTF outbreaks actually become something other than media hype and conspiracy theorist catnip.
The full list of equipment included in each bag is expansive, it’s designed to keep a person alive, sheltered, fed and watered for a minimum of 72-hours – but of course things like magnesium fire starters, tents, flash lights, compasses, blankets and tools will last a lot longer than 3 days.
