outdoor survival kits
Customize your outdoor survival kits according to your specific needs. No one kit meets every need.
Pack your survival items that don't fit in your survival tin in a bag or pouch that can be grabbed easily. It should contain items that will allow you to stay overnight in the wilderness and
enhance your chances of being found. Your kit should contain a cooking pot, fuel, food, and survival bag. I recommend you include survival notes, make your own and put it in your
Small pot and stove
If you don’t bring a camping stove on your trip, I recommend you consider bringing a cooking pot and a pocket stove for your survival kit. As a cooking pot, use, for example, a titanium pot
that is light, strong and also suitable as a container for your other survival items.
Use a pocket stove with fuel tablets. The pocket stove is ultra light, compact and easy to use. The stove simply unfolds to form an adjustable pot stand and holder for burning fuel. The fuel tablets are a great heat source for cooking, getting warm or starting fires. Add extra waterproof matches, you never have enough.
Food bars are ideally suited for disaster survival kits due to their wide storage temperature range and relative small size and weight. You need all the extra calories you can get in a survival situation, so pick high energy food bars. Salt should be an ingredient.
Bring an emergency survival bag of reflective material that keeps you warm. An alternative to buy a survival bag is to use a plastic garbage bag. Large plastic garbage bags make excellent
ponchos, and you can also use them to build a waterproof one person emergency shelter.
Keep it with you
Never venture into the wilderness without your outdoor survival kits.
