I keep two “to-go” bags in my home, one for my wife and I. For these I use thrift shop back packs.

In each vehicle (listed below), I keep duffel bags, mainly because they keep a consistent shape and is easily stuffed against the seat back and stays there. In my 4Runner, I also keep a low profile tote box sans lid, just to keep things together. With the 3rd row seating, there is surprisingly little cargo height between the floor and cargo cover.

In both my vehicles, in addition to many of the survival items already listed, I keep a Sterno stove, and a few days worth of freeze dried MRE’s. They are available at Walmart and my local ranch supply store. I keep a number of bottles of water in the vehicles at all times. We also keep a few days worth of dry dog food for our two small dogs.

Since it regularly drops below zero in winter where I live, I keep a set of oversized insulated overalls in each bag. They are more versatile than a sleeping bag and are more compact.

I don’t recall seeing it already listed, but in all bags, I keep a week’s worth of medications for my wife and I as well.

I make an attempt to rotate out meds and dog food annually to keep them fresh.

There is a lot of great advise here. One thing to remember, the best kit in the world will do you no good if you don't know how to use it. We went on a search in the coastal mountains a couple years ago for a couple that went out for a trail ride during a fairly heavy storm. Their truck was well equipped (I could have lived out of it for probably two weeks) but they almost died of hypothermia because he didn't know how to start a fire in bad weather.
Study & practice your skills BEFORE you need to use them. It could save your life. Common sense and knowledge are the best survival items you can have. The rest are just valuable tools.

Let's be honest, this depends on the terrain you navigate...and the way you go about it. Locked in the rear and winch up front, maxtraxx, hijack, basic tools, shovels, tire patches, and compressor for the vehicle. Ive been fine...throw a jerry can in for good measure.

Much of what I would have suggested has already been suggested.

The only thing I can add is really look at your personal situation as everyone’s is different… perhaps you are on prescription medication, make sure you take things like that into account.

Take into consideration where you like to go / what type of activities you like to do, make sure you have things to optimize your chances of success in those situations.

I spend most of my leisure time in the desert away from people so I put some additional emphasis on communications equipment. I have heard some pretty sad stories over the years that have really resonated with me. Having an emergency communications plan is important, I can’t stress the importance enough if you travel to areas where cellular coverage is NOT reliable.

I highly recommend a HAM radio and or a sat coms device like the Garmin InReach Mini. The InReach service is pretty great and I have been very impressed with it overall. I always thought stuff like this was far out of reach but its affordable / significantly cheaper than owning a sat phone.

Angry You guys are lucky

I live in Northern California but work in San Francisco; we can’t even leave a stainless steel coffee mug or an empty Tupperware container (I have customers that have had their vehicles broken in to just for those items that were visible). A SF cop once told me the homeless/drug addicts will smash your window if they see a single QUARTER sitting in plain sight.

So; unfortunately any Survival/recovery gear I have only goes in my rig when heading out to camp and wheel.

My survival kit has:
Change of clothes in vac bag

Small tent
Jetboil
backpacking meals
hot chocolate and coffee (i rotate out the meals and drinks as i camp, always leaving a few meals and coffee and chocolate in the vehicle)

sawyer mini water filter
toilet paper
2 bic lighters and a firestriker, small amount of tinder
single wall stainless steel container

Always keep a first aid kit when you’re out off-roading. A fire extinguisher is also a good thing to have handy in case of a fire.

Something that doesn't get mentioned much is a saw. I use a folding hardware store pruning saw. Axe can work too but not ideal. You want something that can cut through a 1 foot log if necessary. Was way up in the forests in Norcal a few years back and had a tree fall across the only entrance road to the campground during a 2 hour span between passings. Fortunately I was out on the right side and could drive into cell phone range to call highway patrol. If i weren't there, it would be a long walk for the folks in the campground to try to get to a place where they could call for help. Also just generally useful for camping, clearing trails, etc.

Emergency/recovery gear I currently keep in mine:
First Aid Kit
Tools/ratchet set
Tire plug kit
Hatchet
Saw
Shovel
Emergency blanket
Emergency poncho
Handwarmers
50 feet rope
1 gallon water
snatch strap + shackles + Hitch mount
Jumpstart powerbank
LED Lanterns
Headlamp
Ratchet straps
tire pump
matches and lighter
Atlas book of California
Multitool

Saw, axe, and shovel go with me everywhere. You can build a road with those tools given enough time.

I carry most of the other stuff listed, as well. I'm a big fan of the Garmin (Delorme) Inreach. I've never used it for a backcountry emergency, but I've prevented several domestic emergencies by letting my wife know when I'll be late getting home:-)
