Just watch out, cause FEMA says to have these bags ready, but DHS says you are a terrorist if you have these bags ready.
IMO, everyone needs a BOB (bug out bag). I put a basic list up here. Of course there is always room for other stuff.
Be sure to pack away some spices in your BOB. I like Mrs Dash, it is a blend of spices, and no salt, so make sure you pack away some sea salt.

If you have to leave your homestead, do you plan on carrying all 3 bags with you? Keeping weight down must be a top priority.

I have non-bob bags for different outdoor activities. I have a bag for rifle hunting, a bag for birding, a bag for bass fishing and a kit for fly fishing.
Likewise a basic BOB bag, plus boxes of food that is a bit bulkier. It adds weight, and I'd ditch them or barter them or use them for a bribe or charity in a pinch. I just hate the thought of bugging out in my vehicle and not having every space and crevice crammed with needful things.
Depending on my destination, I could add the rifle kit plus a fishing kit, with room for jerrycans, water cans, and extra food. If you think about it, hunting and fishing gear IS survival gear.

I'd have thought you'd want to pack some gas masks and those tablets that clean water and protect you from radiation?
