Best Prepper Resources and Recommendations Page

Best Prepper Resources and Recommendations. Gear, books, blogs, forums, facebook pages, and more.I’ve created this page to collect all my recommended best prepper websites, gear, books, and other online or offline resources so you guys would have one place to send people or to reference for the good stuff.

Also, I’ve pulled in all the recent posts from every recommended prepper blog out there with an RSS feed so you can check them all at one time. Isn’t that cool?

Here’s what I got for ya here. You can jump down to each section from the links below:

  • TL;DR
  • Best Prepper Gear Recommendations
  • The Best Prepper Websites and Online Resources
  • Best Prepper Book Recommendations
  • Best Prepper Blogs Most Recent Posts Feed
  • How you can recommend things to add to the list

TL;DR – I write long posts with lots of detailed information, and this won’t be any exception. Because I know a lot of you will be reading this from a phone, I’m going to list everything out real quick and then go into the what-for afterward. This page is going to be well over 10,000 words so I wanted to give you a shortcut. BTW, TL;DR means “Too Long; Didn’t Read.”

The Best Prepper Gear Recommendations

As you’ll see here I’m not going to have recommendations for each category such as food, water purification/filtration, firestarters, shelter, clothing, etc.

This list will be driven by the gear itself and not individual categories. That way I don’t have to try to find an interim solution for each category just to fill the spot. Each thing will have to be something special or it won’t be listed.

So here’s the first gear I’m gonna put on the list, in no particular order:

5.11 Rush 72 backpack

When I asked everyone on my facebook page what their number one recommended bug out bag was, this bag was suggested more than all others BY FAR. So much that I actually got one for myself. If you’re looking for a very tough and useful tactical bag, I would definitely suggest it. If I ever deploy again, I’ll be taking this bag. It also comes in two smaller sizes: The Rush 48 and The Rush 24.

Osprey Atmos 65 backpack

This is what I use for my personal bug out bag. Like the 5.11 Rush series, this bag comes in several sizes, and even those sizes come in small, medium, and large to fit your body size. This is by far the best backpack I’ve ever owned, and I’ve owned a bunch. It’s strong, lightweight, has a built-in rain cover at the top, and has the right balance of pockets and access points.

If you’re new to prepping and not sure what kind of bug out bag to get, get this one.

Solo Stove Wood Burning Backpacking Stove

I like to be as flexible as possible with scenarios. I do carry a Trangia Alcohol Spirit Burner Stove and some Yellow Heet for fuel because it makes cooking on-the-go really convenient, but I don’t like relying on cooking with only what I can carry.

The Solo Stove not only cooks really well with twigs and other combustible things, it actually makes an alcohol stove more efficient by focusing the heat onto your pot – and the Trangia fits inside it while it’s in your pack. This way I can cook very efficiently with the small amount of alcohol I carry but have a never-ending supply of fuel for it once that runs out.

CREE 7W Flashlight

I forget now where I first heard about these little gems but damn, I was pretty surprised when I finally got a hold of one. So surprised, I ended up writing a whole review of them.

They’re under $5 but built like you could literally run them over with a truck (I haven’t tried it yet but I’d lay money that it would be fine).

Not only are they super cheap and super strong, they’re SUPER BRIGHT for a single-cell flashlight, and run off an AA battery, which is one of my requirements (so I can use the rechargeable setup to always have batteries and could always find batteries if I lost all the ones I had).

These are so good that I’ve seen a lot of people buy like 20 of them (I’m probably getting close to that now) and put one in each vehicle, give one to each family member, and give them out as great little gifts.

MPOWERD Lucy Inflatable Solar Lantern

I hunted for a long time to find a good lantern for my bug out bag and for camping. Flashlights and headlamps are cool and all but when you’re sitting in your tent or RV either reading or going through your stuff, a lantern is much better.

The problem was that all the lanterns I could find were WAY too bulky and heavy to carry in a pack. Then one day, MPOWERD contacted me and asked if I’d like to do a review of their product. I almost said no (because I usually say no when people want me to review their stuff unless it’s super awesome stuff) but I started reading about how they were using these in Africa and became curious. I certainly could have used one of these when I was in Northern Uganda.

These are absolutely wonderful little lamps. They fold up to about the size and weight of a CD case, are water-proof (they float, actually), and they recharge with the built-in solar panel.

Goal Zero 41022 Guide 10 Plus Solar Recharging Kit

Currently, I have several different solar panels that people have sent me for reviews. I like to be able to charge AA batteries for my flashlights or to keep my cell phone running.

There are many options out there for solar panels, and each have their strengths and minuses, but this setup is the best I’ve found for an out-of-the-box solution to making sure you have AA batteries for your electronics and can also charge your cell phone or tablet through a USB output.

Doan Magnesium Fire Starter

I’ve tried a LOT of fire starters out there over the years. After much thinking, research, and feedback, I think the Doan fire starter is the best overall solution. They’re very cheap, very portable, won’t ever run out of fire-starty stuff, and won’t get ruined when they’re wet.

Just don’t get a cheap knockoff one because the magnesium in those doesn’t work. The real thing is so cheap that there’s really no reason to go with anything else anyway.

SOG Seal Pup Survival Knife

I carried this knife’s big brother, the SOG Seal, in Africa, Iraq, and Afghanistan but it’s just a bit too big for my personal bug out bag gear at home.

If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know how important it is for me to cut down on weight and space as much as possible without sacrificing quality. This knife is the right balance for me of everything a good knife should be.

Fiskars X7 14″ Hatchet

You can certainly bang out a shelter and chop up firewood with a good, strong knife like the SOG Seal or Seal Pup but batoning is much harder than just using a good old-fashioned hatchet.

The Fiskars X7 is the one I chose to go with, and I recommend it for your bug out bag or camping gear, but you should also consider the Estwing E24A above. It was really a toss-up between the two when I got mine, and I did a crap-ton of research.

Sawyer Mini Portable Water Filter

I’ve tried several different water filtration systems but this is the best overall. It’s inexpensive, extremely portable, can be attached in-line to a Camelbak or similar system, and with the backflush syringe can filter 10’s of thousands of gallons. Per gallon of filtered water, it’s the cheapest thing out there.

Suunto M-3 D/L Compass


There are a few compasses that Suunto makes that are similar to this that would work very well but this is the one I landed on. I used my Army-issue tritium lensatic compass for a long time but wanted to drop the weight and space for something that would still work well. This one does.

The Best Prepper Websites and Online Resources

For this section, I’m going to list each website here and a blurb about it but if you head to the Resources and Recommendations page, you’ll also see the most recent posts for each blog that has an RSS I can tap into. This means that page will be updated pretty much live with the best articles on the web about prepper-related topics.

This doesn’t mean that there aren’t other very good websites out there on prepping and survival. I just haven’t had a chance to check them all out. It also doesn’t mean there are a lot of really good sites out there, because there aren’t. Most of them suck.

The quotes for each are from the owner of the site:

Prepper/Survival Blogs

Backdoor Survival –

Backdoor Survival is a lifestyle website that promotes the pursuit of a preparedness lifestyle. It speaks to the need to prepare without fear and without being overwhelmed by the daunting nature of storing food, water and gear. At the same time, there are plenty of articles for learning life-skills such as fire-making, cooking from scratch, and making your own soaps, salves, and first aid remedies. I think of Backdoor Survival as a kinder, gentler, prepping and survival blog.

Gaye Levy consistently puts out some great information on her site. Her articles are well-researched and thorough – and relevant.

Prepper Website –

Prepper Website exists provide links to quality articles and websites that focus on preparing for emergencies, survival, homesteading, simple life and alternative news.

There are only a couple sites I’d list that don’t write their own material because almost all of them just post random articles and the worst of them just outright steal posts from people who take the time to actually research and write them. Todd Sepulveda’s site is different. It’s actually very useful. It’s like the Drudge Report of prepper information. Not only does he have a LOT of articles listed on his site, he personally vets each one. If you’re looking for a good article on some topic or a great list of sites to look into, this site is where to start.

Survival Sherpa –

This Todd writes survival articles. What I also like, other than the fact he has good information, is that he does videos as well. If you’re looking for bushcraft articles or DIY projects, check this one out.

American Preppers Network –

This site is a gateway to a LOT of information about prepping and survival. It’s not just a prepper website, it’s a community (several communities, actually) of preppers from all around the US. Their mission statement is, “To bring knowledge and understanding of living a Self-Reliant lifestyle into the mainstream and teach it to every household in America.”

Ready Nutrition –

My name is Tess Pennington and I am an author of two preparedness books: The Prepper’s Cookbook and The Prepper’s Blueprint, and founder of Ready Nutrition. I started my website as a testament to the preparedness path that I found myself on. As time went on, I realized how important it was to develop skills, plan accordingly and to be more mindful of the way we are living. Since then a great community has developed and I hope you will come and visit with us.

Tess Pennington has a very good thing going on with this site. She has some very thorough articles on more than just canning etc.

The Organic Prepper –

I have a background in alternative journalism. When I read the news, I automatically relate it to my two greatest passions, preparedness and nutrition-based health. This is evident in my website, where I tie all three subjects together. As well, I like to encourage those beginning their preparedness journey, so you’ll find a lot of articles geared towards those just getting started.

This is the prepper site to go to if you have an anti-GMO/vaccine or similar bent. Daisy doesn’t ONLY write about those topics but a lot of her articles have a sort of rational anarchy rant to them.

Prep for SHTF –

Preparing For SHTF is an Emergency Preparedness and Survival blog that touches on Homesteading, Bushcraft and other various skills needed to survive an impending disaster.

This site has a balance of bite-sized information or videos along with more thorough posts.

Tin Hat Ranch –

Sometimes campy, often entertaining, the Tin Hat Ranch is a unique website tied to an equally unique Youtube channel. While they solidly cover the tenants of emergency preparedness, survival gear, and a bit of homesteading, for subjects such as “How to Hide From Drones” and “How To Survive a Nuclear Bomb”, you might need to break out the Reynolds Wrap. All in all, the site is a great place to follow for new and old prepper’s alike.

Some great information on this site but make sure you check out his youtube channel (listed in the menu at the site). He has over 20,000 subscribers to his channel and sometimes it’s just easier to watch someone than to read about it.

Mom With a Prep –

Mom with a PREP is a blog dedicated to helping families be prepared for whatever life throws at them, through learning more about emergency preparedness, survival, homesteading for the whole family.

This site is more about homesteading and gardening but is geared toward preppers (hence the name) and has prepping-specific information as well. The articles aren’t fluff so you’ll actually get something out of reading them.

Survival at Home –

Survival at Home is a site that focuses on homesteading and preparedness for the modern family.

Patrick has some really good information on his site about gardening, homesteading, food preservation, survival skills, and basic prepping. Unlike most sites out there, he writes good information and gives enough detail so you actually learn something.

SHTF Preparedness –

SHTFpreparedness.com is an aggregator for the best prepping, homesteading and DIY articles from around the web

This is another prepper content curation site but Matty not only chooses each link carefully, he writes his own take on them instead of just pulling the intro from the post like most sites do.

Camping Survival Blog –

CampingSurvival.com. It’s not about the END OF THE WORLD – It’s not about surviving a hypothetical PLANE CRASH – It’s about the SATISFACTION YOU GET knowing you can take care of yourself and/or your family in ANY SITUATION, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE!

This site is a good mix of prepper information with some down-to-earth camping and outdoor articles. They have a separate site (in the quote) that sells camping- and survival-related gear.

Survival Mom –

The Survival Mom blog gives moms tools, tips, and strategies to help them worry less and enjoy their families more. Lisa Bedford, blog founder and editor, is also the author of Survival Mom: How to Prepare Your Family for Everyday Emergencies and Worst Case Scenarios.

One of the big ones out there in the online prepper world. Great articles on healthy living and preparedness. There’s a lot more to this site than it looks at first glance.

Offgrid Survival –

OFFGRID SURVIVAL, run by emergency preparedness expert Robert Richardson, Author of The Ultimate Situational Survival Guide, is a website devoted to giving its readers essential tactics and step-by-step instructions for surviving real-world disasters, threats, and crisis. From detailed articles on both urban and wilderness survival, to real-time preparedness news and threat alerts, OFFGRID SURVIVAL gives you real-world advice on how to survive the very real threats present in today’s society.

Very good and thorough articles about much more than just off-grid living. Good articles on camping, prepping, survival, and quite a bit more.

Survival Magazine –

This site has survival-related articles and a very strong facebook page following but one of its real strengths is its forum.

Food Storage and Survival –

Sharing the peace of preparedness from our family to yours. Simplified, no hype help with food storage, survival, preparedness, and self reliance.

Not only does this site have a ton of great food preservation, survival, and homesteading articles, it has its own podcast.

Ultimate Survival Tips –

This site has not only good survival-related articles, they have some really good product reviews and even some videos. I just found this site but I already like it.

Survival Blog

SurvivalBlog.com is a comprehensive blog on family preparedness that has been posted daily since 2005.  This site has an emphasis on “how to” practical skills and has more than 85,000 archived articles and letters.

This is James Wesley Rawles’ own website. It’s been around forever and has TONS of information on it. He has lots of people send in articles and they choose the best to post on the site.

Prepper/Survival Facebook Pages

You’ll notice that some of these pages belong to the blogs above but that’s not necessarily the case. These Facebook pages were chosen on their own merits because they provide good information outside of just reminding you when they publish posts on their site. Facebook pages that only promote their own website were not chosen.

Prepper-related Forums

PrepperForum.net – This forum has grown quite a lot since I came across it during my last deployment to Afghanistan. They now have almost a quarter million posts and over 8600 members.

The Best Prepper Book Recommendations

There are many different kinds of books that could be listed here as the best book for preppers and those interested in survival but I have to keep the list manageable to be useful to people. I have a lot of these books myself but a few are those that have a crap-ton of really good reviews and were suggested to me.

In the future, I may divide this section into different categories but for the moment, this is essentially the list of books I’d recommend for pretty much anyone interested in prepping or just being prepared for emergencies. If you’re looking for a book to read or to give as a gift, this list will help you.

SAS Survival Guide – I haven’t found any book better for teaching survival skills. I’m not alone in thinking that either. Every time I ask for feedback on the best survival or prepper books out there, this book is recommended more than the others by far.

LDS Preparedness Manual – This book has a lot of information for people who would like to be prepared to bug in instead of bug out. It was written by several members 0f the LDS church so there are a few pages of religious information in it but the majority of the book by far is information on being prepared, and they do a good job with it.

The Prepper’s Blueprint – This book is more of a pure prepper book than the others and has tons of good information in it. This is the book you have in mind when you’re looking for a prepper book.

Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family – This book is a great complement to the Prepper’s Blueprint. Some of the information is obviously the same but it’s written from a different perspective and covers a few different scenarios.

Prepper’s Long term Survival Guide – This is a great book to get started. It has a good reference list in it that you can use to get even more information. This book is definitely written with practicality in mind.

The Encyclopedia of Country Living, 40th Anniversary Edition: The Original Manual of Living Off the Land & Doing It Yourself – This book has a LOT of good info in it. If I were going to head off into the woods to start a small colony, this would be the book I’d take.

The Preppers Cookbook – Surviving most scenarios doesn’t have to mean eating bugs and snakes. It also doesn’t mean you have to be bored to death if you have to spend some time eating out of your survival stores. Not only that but there are some good recipes in there that you can use today, especially if you’re into canning or other food preservation.

The Survival Medicine Handbook: A Guide for When Help is Not on the Way – Great book that covers a lot of what you need to know if someone needs medical attention but there isn’t a doctor or hospital around.

One Second After – This book is good for getting you in the mindset of what could happen if SHTF. It’s set just after an EMP hits the US and explores the changes in society and how people deal with things once normal life changes.

Ancestral Plants by Arthur Haines – You can never learn enough about what to eat out in the woods. The more you know, the more food will be available and the less likely it is that you’ll accidentally eat something to make you sick.

Going Home series by Angery American – If you liked One Second After, you’ll really like this set – and you can go through the whole series. It’s written in a very approachable way by A. American. Start with Going Home and read the whole Survivalist set.

Lighting is important for so many things, not the least of which is finding your way in the darkness during a power outage or while stumbling around outdoors on a moon-less night. It therefore should come as no surprise that emergency lighting is one of the top ten items on every prepper's must-have list. The collection of emergency light sources we gather for preparedness purposes is often extensive and includes flashlights, propane lanterns, and USB charged light sticks.

Emergency Water for Preppers Purification | Backdoor Survival
While sourcing water, and especially an adequate supply of water, is a challenge, making such water safe to drink is a whole other matter. There is much confusion relative to the best method to use to purify water. Is it boiling, filtering, adding bleach, distillation, or something else? Truth be told, the answer is “it depends”. Over time, I am starting to believe that the answer you get is dependent upon who you ask and what interests they happen to represent. In this article, Daisy Luther, responds to the water purification questions posed by readers in a recent Prepper [...]

Years ago, I was reading the book Surviving the Apocalypse in the Suburbs. (Great book that I highly recommend!) The premise of the book is that our future economic woes will be based on the scarcity of oil. The author, Wendy Brown, makes an excellent case regarding our dependency on oil, but the thing that really stood out in my mind was how she had changed her family's diet well in advance of this economic crisis. She focused her efforts on local food for self-reliance in the long run. She discussed at length the fact that on her suburban property, in her [...]

Homesteaders & Preppers: We Are On the Same Team | Backdoor Survival
I'm not sure why people so often feel the need to be smug and put down others for their self-reliance efforts. Maybe it's because they need to feel superior. Maybe they don't actually see the entire picture, and their opinions are based on only partial information. Maybe, giving the benefit of the doubt, they don't realize how demoralizing their comments are to others who are doing the best they can with the resources they have.

Preppers
Somewhere along the evolutionary trail the human brain became bigger. Bigger brains meant less physical work. We were able to fashion tools, weapons and build things like shelters. This meant we needed less physical attributes, because we could think and reason and to some extent figure out what the future held, by events occurring today. If a hurricane struck relatively at the same time each year, early humans that lived in coastal areas, figured out that maybe they should prepare for next time, or pack up and move further inland until the crisis abated. Humans are the only species on earth [...]

Water Security Off Grid
Going off grid is the desire of many Preppers, and some have successfully done just that. It requires planning and hard work however, and furthermore, it requires you keep an eye on the future. Some Internet bloggers and self-proclaimed survival experts predict a so-called golden hoard. Some believe, and possibly there is some credence to the theory, that a mass exodus of people from urban areas will flow across the land once the SHTF. People, according to the theory, will migrate mainly into rural areas seeking solace and a safe haven from the apocalypse. The untrained and unprepared will swarm [...]

Then push the cut top into the bottom portion. You can punch holes through both pieces and secure together with fishing line or any cordage. Punch holes in the sides of the bottle and the bottom to allow for water flow. The fish swim [...]

Hi all, I have always been a food prepper having at least 6 months worth in my cupboards but I feel though that things are changing. The world is not the same we have religious wars and people country jumping, China in meltdown and America has a tad to much debt, Europe is broke and global weather is all over the place. I believe we are heading for something ugly and it is time to fully prep for a economic or other disaster as the ones who survive will not be the best dressed.

How you can recommend things to add to this list

If you have any suggestions as to what I should put on the Resources and Recommendations page or any feedback on what’s already on it, you’ll find a link in my newsletter that I occasionally send out. If you aren’t already subscribed, you really should.

One of the big benefits to signing up is that I send out a quick email with it when I write a new post. As I’m sure you’ve discovered by now, I don’t post very often, due to the research and details that I put in my posts and occasionally several weeks go by between posts. Getting the newsletter means you won’t have to keep checking my site to see if I’ve written something new.

Because people who sign up for the newsletter are much more of the target audience for my site and think more like I do about things, I’ve decided to start using that as a vehicle for more feedback and ideas, such as for this project. More will follow.
