|The Smith & Wesson Bullseye Search and Rescue knife|
My boyfriend is in law enforcement so he can get some good deals on high-quality backpacks so he's in change of that but I'm adding what I can month by month. Here's what I've found so far:
Knives: I don't know anything about knives but I bought Smith & Wesson CKSUR1 Bullseye Search and Rescue Fixed Blade Knife because it is fixed blade and doesn't fold in like a pocket knife, looked like a good size, and had positive reviews.

So I think it's a good purchase for the price, I'm sure it can be used for hunting and cutting things and of course self-protection. I think it would be a good idea to get a serrated knife as well, just to diversify.
My boyfriend found these survival straps that you wear as bracelets and can unwind in an emergency to use as a cord. If you use it in an emergency, you can send it back to the company and they'll wind it back up for free.

It's really big and bulky so I confess I don't wear it day to day. Maybe if I was going hiking somewhere or doing something rugged I would put it on.
Not bug-out bag related but for prepping storage: my boyfriend also got me an ammo can which, as its name suggests, is a container to store ammo and keep it nice and dry. It looks like this:
Inside I keep some ammo and glow sticks:

My next goal is assembling a first-aid kit!
