When prepping for survival situations, one thing to consider is your water supply. With a bug-out bag (BOB), you will have to carry a substantial weight because you need to have enough supplies to last you at least 72 hours (or three days).
But a BOB, despite its weight, makes it easy to stay mobile, and it ensures that you have enough supplies until things settle down. But how much water will you need for your BOB and can you carry that much weight when SHTF? (h/t to PreppersSurvive.com.)
The average adult needs at least half a gallon of water daily (64 ounces). Half a gallon weighs as much as two large water bottles. Consider getting emergency or hiker bottles that measure every four oz. so you can regulate how much you drink. This also makes it easier to ration your water supply.
When water becomes scarce, try to drink at least two 4.225 oz. Emergency Water Pouches per day per person, or at least 25 oz. in three days.
To make things easier for yourself, find out how much water you’ll need for three days so you can survive. Figure out how much you can carry without becoming uncomfortable, and use the right water bottles to carry the water. (Related: Do you have a safe source of water for an SHTF situation?
