People often ask me about my backpack and what I carry in there all the time. Many inquire about the large locking carabiner on the top grab handle.
Plan to include several carabiners that will allow you to hang your important items up and away from flood waters. #NatlPrep
I always keep my important documents (like copies of insurance cards, family communications plan, and out of state contacts) away from flood/wet areas. The carabiner allows me to hang my bag anywhere so my important documents never get wet.
When putting together your kit, always include carabiners as they are multi-functional.
Another pro tip: Do NOT get a cheap carabiner, get sturdy rugged carabiners.
