Echo-Sigma’s Get Home Bag

    A Get Home Bag “is designed to provide provisions and tools appropriate to help you get home (or other suitable shelter) should an emergency emerge while you are going about everyday life.” When I read this on the Echo-Sigma website, I got a better understanding that preparing for an emergency means thinking about how you might be at work, in your car, or away from home when disaster strikes. Since home is where most of us keep our emergency supplies, it’s important to be prepared no matter where we may be.

    The Echo-Sigma Get Home Bag has a few days of supplies for one person who needs to get home to their primary emergency supply cache. You can get the backpack in black, red, coyote brown, ATACs, or MultiCam.

    Here’s a list of items which come with the Echo-Sigma Get Home Bag:

      • 1 Compact Assault Pack by Condor Outdoor
      • 1 Hydration System (2.5 Liter) by Condor Outdoor
      • 1 Echo-Sigma 1-3 Day Provision Pack (Arid)
      • 1 Echo-Sigma Compact Survival Kit 
      • 1 Echo-Sigma Compact First Aid Kit
      • 1 Gerber “Vise” Multi-Tool with Pliers, Knife, Screwdrivers and more
      • 1 Waterproof LED Flashlight by Fenix (170 Lumen)
      • 50 Feet of Military Grade 550 Paracord
      • 10 Extra Large Zip Ties
      • 1 Coghlan’s Emergency Tube Tent
      • 1 Emergency Poncho
      • 1 Plexiglass Mirror for signaling help
      • 1 Thermal Sleeping Bag Cocoon by Survival Industries
      • 6 Premium AA Alkaline Batteries (guaranteed fresh for 7 years)
