The term “survival kit” may also refer to the larger, portable survival kits prepared by survivalists, called “bug-out bags” (BOBs), “Personal Emergency Relocation Kits” (PERKs) or “get out of Dodge” (GOOD) kits, which are packed into backpacks, or even duffel bags. These kits are designed specifically to be more easily carried by the individual in case alternate forms of transportation are unavailable or impossible to use. These bags contain supplies such as food, water purification equipment, clothing, medical equipment, communications gear, and tools.
