Survival kit

Post  Doc_Shane on Sun Jan 20, 2013 4:36 pm

I have assembled and broken down a survival kit that can be pouch carried (I use a SAW pouch) or broken down to carry in the cargo pockets of BDU pants. It contains my "essential items".

The contents-
2x heavy plastic zip lock type bags
50ft of 550 cord
2x Mylar blanket
Lensatic Compass
Waterproof matches in a case
Esbit stove
6 Fuel tabs
Fire steel
Chemlight
Water purification tabs
wire saw
Leatherman multi tool
Old GI pocket knife
fishing hooks, weights and line
3 ft of duct tape
snare wire
3 tea light candles

The kit has essentials to secure the basics of survival- shelter, water, fire, food.

I will be adding some Mainstay rations to it.

This kit is to augment the other items that I normally carry daily-
CRKT tanto folder
Leatherman Supertool

This is what I am building as part of my field kit. It is in a separate pouch so is part of a modular set of gear that can be rearranged for specific purposes when needed. I have most of the items, but not all. Still looking for just the right pouch. Currrently just packaged in some Zip locks for stashing in various places in the overall kit.
