One other thing to consider with your wilderness survival kit is that you want to be able to find your gear. Leave a comment below to let me know what you would add or remove in your wilderness survival kit.
If you pack your bivy sack, your Grandpa’s 3-pound wool sweater, and 3 days of MRE’s your kit will likely stay on the shelf. For some reason the links to the compass and the first aid kit you recommended don’t seem to be showing up for me though.
I am glad to see some items I have bought being included in your list-, fixed blade knife (seal pup), Gorilla duct tape, shemag, iodine pills (I am going to check the Aquamira ones too), first aid kit (I will improve it with a few basic medicines). I am going on a troop wilderness survival campout where I am staying the first night in Adirondacks. This awesome collaboration brings together Gerber's 70+ years of knife and gear expertise with Bear Grylls' extensive outdoor survival and adventure experience to create a one-of-a-kind, all-in-one survival kit.

If you buy a first-aid kit make sure you are familiar with where all the components live and how to use them. Combined these only weigh a couple ounces and they will add a ton more functionality to your kit.
If this is your first time doing a survival trip, I would look at it as more of an ultralight backpacking trip. I’m guessing that if you survived a plane crash, there would be lots of material to use for survival.
The second day I will be working on the wilderness survival merit badge, and then at night we will be staying in the wilderness survival shelter we are making.
From spending time in the British SAS, to scaling Mount Everest, Bear knows what it takes to be a survivor in extreme situations and multiple environments.
We’ll get to the actual contents of your kit soon, but there are a couple of things I want to go over before that.

Now he's bringing that knowledge to the creation Gerber's ultimate survival kit, that they hope you'll buy, and then never have to use it.Earlier last week we had the opportunity to get our hands dirty with Bear's new survival kit, and to be honest at first glance, it wasn't that impressive, but as we dug deeper and deeper into the relatively small kit we quickly realized that this kit wasn't just slapped together and mass produced over night. I was wondering what I can bring to make myself warm (I cannot bring things like a blanket because our troop is going full blown wilderness survival). The most important thing is to DO something physical – and reading about survival does not count. If you're not anywhere near water they've supplied the kit with a snare wire, which when used properly and effectively can do the work for you while you sleep.
