An aviator's survival vest (SRU-21P), worn by helicopter crews, also contains survival items. This 15 inch survival knife with drop point blade features a thick quality stainless steel blade with serrated top edge. Survival kit includes a hollow grip with a compass top to store items within the knife itself, as well as additional pouches on the sheath to hold the rest.
Lets face it, survival is not only for the fittest, the strongest, hell even the ones with the most money. Like our friends to the right, this is preparation, when the SHTF, you want to know that your family is safe and sound, with access to the right equipment, supplies and basic needs till help arrives.
If you did sustain some sort of injury then you need to treat yourself with basic first aid (click here to find out the basics of first aid).
Forgetting your basic kit or bug out bag is typical of a disaster situation, that flight or fight mode will kick in and logic goes straight out the door.
A survival kit is a package of basic supplies and tools that are prepared in advance so as to be used in emergency situations for instance when in lifeboats, the wilderness, urban or natural disasters such as floods, fires, winter storms, tornadoes etc. Sometimes survivors get caught out trying to achieve too much in one day or take unnecessary risks. Longevity comes down to making the right decisions and when you body is that stressed out or paralyzed by fear, you can bet your not going to survive as long as you need to.


This is a bit hard to do in an earthquake situation but if you get caught in the wild or in a desert, you need to be more aware of your surroundings and that awareness applies to what’s in your kit.
Overall the SURVIVAL acronym will keep you mind ticking over the basics but all preppers need to know these 6 minimum requirements. To be prepared it is essential that you go through 3 very important steps and create a checklist. Depending on the type of emergency you encounter, your kit might have to be adapted slightly, but a strong basic pack will equip you for 95% of the way.
We will be using different terminology throughout the site but to start you off on the basics, lets us start with the good old BOB backpack.
A bug out bug or BOB refers to a larger portable pack that is prepared by survivalists to be used in disaster situations.
The contents of the kits often depend on a number of factors including the area that you live in (e.g.
Professional survival book- This book should be studied before hand and also kept for reference during the disaster. First aid kit – This should contain all the necessary first aid tools that may be needed during the disaster. You can make your own kit or you can go the easy but obviously more expensive route of buying a complete system.


Included are your basic tools and fire starters, Food and water gathering devices, moderate navigation and shelter systems a nice adventure first aid kit and enough weather and 7 1200 calorie food bars. Designed without compromise, this pack comes with supplies to repair even the backpack, shovels, knives, saws, full MSR cooking kit & stove, ballistic flashlights, radios, water pumps, tents, pepper spray, you wont just survive in the wilderness, you will thrive!
Your equipment will be integral and if you have left anything behind, you will need the basics to learn how to make do and improvise your tools.
The kit also enables you to treat members of your group in basic first aid or wound management, if a serious situation occurs. Depression and low self esteem during survival situations can be so harmful to your will power to stay alive, think of loved ones or your favorite thoughts during these times and have a high value on your life.
As a last preparation ensure that the kit you have chosen fits your needs which can be special compared to others, and might need to be slightly adapted, such in cases of special medical requirements.
The idea behind a bug out bag is to help the survivor evacuate the situation rather than a kit, by where there are enough supplies for long term evasion. However, there are other day to day situations that may also require special kits and they include; lifeboats, military, vehicle kits among others.
