Warmth and comfort (Poncho / Ground cloth, Wind-proof Umbrella, Baby wipes, Vinyl gloves); Power up (USB power pack, USB wall charger, Universal charger cable); Utility (24-in-1 Multi-tool, Bungee cords, Sewing kit) and Light (4 Flashlights, Glow sticks)
You've got your basic Go!Bag and now you want to make sure you're really covered in an emergency, and ready for more.
Add these to your Go!Bag:
A Multi-tool is indispensible and can help you work your way around a lot of nagging issues. A box of baby wipes can keep your hand, face and nether parts clean even if you don't have access to water. You absolutely want to stay warm and dry, so you should have a poncho and an umbrella to face the elements. We recommend an extra box of vinyl gloves because they protect your hands and keep them clean in more situations than first aid. If your clothes get torn, a sewing kit will keep you going. Along with your headlamp, we love having a couple flashlights (torches) to go around, and glow sticks can alert first responders, mark off areas, and you can clip them to a pet or a child so you know where they are in the dark. Bungee cords are just so useful. Finally, a USB charger and universal charger cable so you can charge all your devices if you have power, and a battery pack if you don't. Order these items now and you and your GoBag will be ready for almost anything.

About our methodology
We spent hours reviewing materials from FEMA (the US Federal Emergency Management Agency), the Red Cross, the Humane Society as well as a host of other government and non-governmental organizations to put together the checklist of necessary items. We then spent many more hours reviewing products. We look for quality, completeness without overkill, high customer ratings, and price. We read the customer reviews and note their experience. And of course, these are the items we personally bought.
