Here, for your convenience, we have assembled a checklist of all the equipment we recommend having on hand, just in case today is the day. We will add to it as we add articles. Each item on the list has a number associated with it (1 through 5). If the item is a 1, it is either not that critical, or only useful in unlikely apocalypse scenarios. However if an item is a 5, having it on hand will be the difference between life and death.

Of course, this is not just a simple check list one can blindly follow, each item requires careful consideration. For example if you’re in Mexico, a brimmed hat would be on your list, rather than a winter hat. To help, each item has links to our articles related to it.Furthermore, this list is geared more towards the apocalyptic wanderer who needs to travel light with only the essentials.
