101 Prepper Gear Supply Guide

Spread the love

Whether you’re just starting out or whether you’ve been at it for decades, we all love gear!

I’ve said it over and over again that there’s nothing wrong with loving and buying gear. While it’s true that our mind and body are our greatest assets, gear is our ‘tools of the trade’ so to speak.

Prep gear and prep skills; there’s no reason it should be either or!

This is no particular order and keep in mind that some of these items do require you to learn a skill in order to appropriately use the item. And not every item will be right for everyone. These are just suggestions and ideas for bugging in or bugging out purposes.

Here are 101 pieces of gear that I recommend every prepper should consider having in their arsenal:

  1. Paracord

There you have it! 101 items that could be added to your prepper gear supply.

There could be a lot added to this list that would be for personal needs. For instance, I wear glasses so I want an extra pair of glasses.

Or if you have kids, you’ll have some kid specific items to stock up on.

Or if you have pets, you’ll have pet specific needs to stock up on.

Or if there are any health concerns, you’ll have those needs to stock up on.

Take this list and add to it, change it as necessary.

Have fun!

    Thank you for sharing. I appreciate it. I do have a question. #65 Billow. Should that read bellows? If not, what’s a billow?

    Best regards,
