When we consider emergency scenarios, many of us think, how would I survive? However, for most of us, a better question is, how would we survive? It's important to include all members of your family in your survival plans, and prepare each individual to help the group in any way possible. This also includes your kids — in case something happens to you, they shouldn't be completely reliant on your knowledge and gear.

Kid Patriot backpack bug out bag children family survival 7

Kid Patriot is a new company that offers custom backpacks made specifically for kids. These packs could work well for everyday use at school, or could be filled with bug-out gear and stashed in your kids' rooms in case of emergency. They're hand-made to order in Tennessee, and can be ordered in your choice of six fabric choices and a selection of handle, zipper pull, and shoulder strap colors.

Each Kid Patriot backpack is built from a tough 500-denier Cordura fabric exterior and a black ripstop nylon lining. The carry handle and straps are made from durable seatbelt material, and large YKK zippers ensure long-lasting operation. The pack has a capacity of 14 liters and an MSRP of $89.
