What’s the ideal weight for a bug out bag?

Question from Adrian:
What’s the ideal weight for a bug out bag? I have been putting together a bug out bag and tweaking it through the years, but it seems a bit heavy. All the things in the bag are essentials and I don’t want to get rid of any of the items, but I’m not sure this is an ideal bag to run with!

Answer from Bast:
If the bag is full of what you need then the question is no longer about the bag. Start considering the carrier. Get your self used to that bag, get in the gym and get pumped! Go hiking with the bag on the weekends. It sounds to me the like the ideal weight for a bag has nothing to do with your situation because you have all your essentials and you need those.

Power up and in a short time you will be able to go further with that bag than you thought possible.
