Your bugout bag or survival backpack is an essential piece of this puzzle. Your bag should hold everything you need regularly. What happens if your bag is too small to accommodate your bivvy? Or perhaps, you have been hiking all day. You are hot, sweaty and feeling dizzy. You reach in your bag for your shemagh, but the bag is too large and disorganized. You end up wasting valuable time and effort. You find yourself frantically dumping everything out on the ground in order to locate the one simple item you need in order to wet and cool your body temperature down.
