I put a lot of work into the posts and videos for these items and they only show up on a few posts. So most people don’t see most of the reviews. This post is here to fix that. I also made this post because I made a dedicated blog for prepper articles. I would have done it sooner, but I’m very busy writing and taking care of my 5 year old daughter. The new blog is Prepper Alcove. Check it out when you get a chance.
I’ve reviewed the top items on Amazon pertaining to preppers. The top sellers with the most positive reviews. I’ve done all the work for you. I know some people won’t agree with everything here, and that’s ok.
Most of these items you can put in your bug out bag and one of them is a bug out bag. Some are great for EDC. They aren’t listed in any particular order.
