Some of the items – AUTHOR DOES NOT RECOMMEND THESE TO ANYONE, AND USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. THIS IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY – If you do so and you injure someone playing doctor, you’re on your own. Always seek proper Medical attention.
This is my survival kit. I’m not a minimalist, or a purest. Some will carry very tiny packs or those kits in hollow handle knives, and that’s great. I find a survival kit can be personal, because of what kind of outdoor activities you do, or where you live. Mine isn’t a perfect kit, but I’m happy with it.
This kit is heavy on 1st Aid, and fire starting, and less on food gathering based on possible survival times going without (depending on conditions):
1 -1st aid, (can be minutes)
2 – Protection from elements/warmth, (minutes to hours)
3 – safe drinking water, (Hours to days)
4 – food I consider the least important. (UP TO A MONTH – Doesn’t mean you would want to go without it, just means you can die faster without the first three.)
