Thank you for this, it’s great. We’re going to be putting a first aid/medical kit list sometime in the future, and I’ll definitely take that first list into account when we get around to posting that. It’ll be really helpful.
Yes yes! Thank you so much, I knew I forgot plenty :). I will not be updating this list for some time but when I do I will be adding these thanks to your suggestion! Can’t believe I forgot them completely!
I find the cross bow way to heavy for a bug out situation there are far lighter options available in a long bow you can even get them in a break down version. They do take more time to master but it makes a great hobby in good times and an invaluable skills in bad times.
The Credit Card Knife is perhaps Survival Life’s biggest namesake. This small knife starts out about the same size and weight as a traditional credit card, but unfolds in seconds into a fully functional knife. It features a surgical steel blade, protective hand guard, and even a built-in safety sheath to keep it from becoming dull, and from accidentally opening in your pocket or pack.
I ordered the Hoffman Richter Talon knife for $24.95 with a promised delivery date of 7-12 business days. I called for status at the 18 business day mark and was told the order was “misplaced.” They said my money will be refunded, but we’ll see. Although they list an Austin, Texas physical address and a phone number with the correct Austin, Texas exchange (512), the number connects to a “customer service” contractor company in the Philippines.

When you choose a sleeping bag rated for cold weather, sleeping bags filled with goose down are lightest — but they come with a consequence. If your bag gets wet it loses all insulating properties. A single tear can cause down to spill out. Your best bet is to get a down sleeping bag with a Gortex liner, to protect from moisture. But the price for Goretex down bags with a high rating can be steep — which can climb to $500 or more.
Ah – I must’ve missed that part, my apologies. 1 million in SALES is definitely viable, if they are selling/promoting expensive products. Though still to my point, if you are using this website as a proof of concept for your marketing business – as they are – they should be transparent and disclose what operating costs were.
When is a range bag not just a range bag? When it can save your life in a dozen different ways.Introducing the Echo-Sigma Ranger, a range bag that’s pre-built with everything you need to have a successful day in the field. This is the same kit that Echo-Sigma owner Jack Nouri carries with him when he competes at USPSA, IDPA and other national sh…
To keep “hunting pressure” to a minimum, consider bow hunting due to the fact that gun shots can spook wildlife. The draw back to hunting with a bow is that bow hunting requires a lot of time learning how to shoot correctly — but it can be done and may be well worth the effort in the end for long term survival.
Can’t believe I missed this comment! Just took a look at the stove and it looks great! Want to get my hands on one to test it out. Looks like it would do absolutely perfectly as a backup/emergency stove. Thanks so much for recommending it, Darlene!

On cigarettes: the kinds in boxes wrapped in cellophane go stale fairly easily and quickly. Tobacco for cigarettes is sold in tin cans (size #5 I think) and often include rolling papers inside the can, but not filters. For many people, a non-filtered cigarette is better than no cigarette though. The tobacco stays fresher longer in a can (probably forever) and of course the can protects the tobacco better from the elements or from being squished than does cellophane.
As a family we were trying to think of a way we could show solidarity with him while he was enduring The Crucible, the 54-hour exercise that is the defining moment of a Marine’s boot training.  Some families burn candles, but we didn’t want an open flame in the house when we would be at work or running errands.  So we decided to each design and wear a Survival Strap and not remove it until we were sure that he had earned his Eagle Globe & Anchor.
WATER: In an emergency, one of the most important things to have on hand is clean drinking water. First My Family emergency kits are equipped with a 72-hour supply of emergency water. U.S. Coast Guard Certified for 5 Years.
Good basic kit. You’ll need to add stuff to it (like extra food, solar radio, tents, clothes, etc). But, this is a great start. It’s also nice to have 2 decent backpacks so you can take the stuff with you if you need to move locations after an emergency.
I ordered the free knife knowing going in that is was just a lure to get you to buy something else. When I saw the offer for a second free knife, I knew that is was a catch. If you bother to read anything else, it tells you that you are also going to be in their club and there was a monthly fee. I clicked on “no thanks” and got my free knife with no problems, and it is good for what it is.
According to the Survival Life website, membership to the Lamplighter society provides an easy, practical way of obtaining information related to survival preparedness, without having to spend years of trial and error. With this in mind, membership is claimed to provide the following benefits:

These are some excellent tips for sure! I will definitely be making separate B.O.B., home, car, etc. articles, but I wanted to have one that was just a huge list of kit people may have missed out on using with regards to just everything all at once. I know it’s a bit of a mess, but still hope it’s helpful to some to have the suggestions like this (a.k.a. all in one place). But yes! Definitely a good idea to have separation, which I will definitely do (eventually) with some new articles.
I enjoyed your article, made me consider a few things I hadn’t thought of. I know we live in different countries but #12 should be #1. The human race is ugly…period. I’ve seen it in Hurricane Katrina, Mt. Penetubo eruption and 27 months in combat in the middle east…You need weapons and a solid team of like minded people, otherwise your whole list of goodies gets taken away and you get killed or worse. In England…my first priority would be “borrowing” some real weapons from your military/police people, whether they like it or not…..here is the U.S. I already have that base well covered. In SHTF remember the “Golden Rule”…….”Do unto others BEFORE they do unto you”. Because they are going to try….thanks for the food for thought. Cary Kieffer
I also contacted the Navy Seal Foundation to verify whether they had hooked up Walchle with the “scientist guy,” but the woman who responded seemed to have difficulty understanding what I was talking about. She knew nothing. That was understandable. I’d been on the phone all morning and knew about as much as she did.
A Petzl Grigri 2 Belay Device is only an effective tool for someone experienced in the basics of climbing. Climbing and descending by rope is not that difficult to learn and many cities have recreation centers and outfitters with indoor walls where you can be taught how to climb by an instructor. (To be more prepared for the wilderness, follow up with instruction on an actual rock face or cliff.)
To inspire active participation in the world outside through award-winning coverage of the sports, people, places, adventure, discoveries, health and fitness, gear and apparel, trends and events that make up an active lifestyle.
Looks great in the photo’s, but it is not what I received. Very disappointing and not as sturdy/durable as expected based on the photos. The photos show (2 of the 3 photos they have on the page) this great stainless steel buckle and heavy stainless steel screw (similar to what I have received on other high dollar Paracord Survival Bracelets) set to hold it firmly in place. The bracelet I received has a cheap nylon plug to hold it together (photo of what I received attached). I assume that will last a couple of weeks and will loosen up from daily outdoor wear and tear or snap off. The photos advertising it are no doubt false and not the product they ship. It’s an absolute shame that a company that markets this worthy cause uses misleading photos to sell their substandard product. I have been on Amazon many, many years and this is the worst item I have received to date based on what was shown versus what I received.
Say you’re at work and a terrorist attack occurs. Roads are closed to any and all traffic but you only want to get home – even if that means walking. You may not want to grab your full on family pack in the car or you may not even be able to get to it. But you just want a light kit to get you through. How far is it to get home from wherever you may be? This get home kit should provide for 1-3 nights of traveling on foot till you make it home.
This survival tool is called Rescue Me Balloon, a small, easy-to-carry emergency survival tool that places an SOS balloon 150 feet above a person in an survival situation and illuminates an SOS signal using an LED light. The rescue me balloon will s
The suggestions for the kit looks great, however I think you need to get your basics together first, fire making, shelter, first aid, food, and water,for at least 3 days, then weigh your kit. Now see how many pounds are left before you hit your maximum load which is going to vary for each person. Remember if your buggin out this isn’t a Saturday afternoon hike in the park where after three hours or so you thrown your pack in the car and go home. It’s going to be with you day in and day out.
A multi-tool shouldn’t be viewed as a knife with a bunch of other stuff attached. In fact, if you’re really after a survival knife, you should get one separate to a multi-tool, a straight-edged, fixed knife which is far more reliable in crucial situations than one designed to fold away.
-CR123 batts… Some love them, some hate them.. I’m indiferent because I get them issued to me for now, but I have to be honest, none of my personal items take them. I don’t even carry extra batteries for AA – I just find a yard with cheep sloar lights and trade them out. Power output vs. longevity divided by ease of finding extras, I always go with the standard. Plus, 2 years ago, there would have been a few guys who could have told you what most peoples reactions are to 900 illume light being strobed in some ones face – it can and is being trained against and it’s super easy to defeat – don’t rely on it as a security measure – there is only one flash that is definate…
Please note how difficult it can be making a fire through traditional survival & bushcraft techniques like rubbing sticks together. While I wholeheartedly recommend you practice and aim to perfect these no-gear-needed fire-making skills, I also recommend you not depend solely on your ability to make a fire in this way if it’s at all possible. At least do your best to carry a fire steel on you as a backup, especially considering how hard it can be to light a fire in wet/humid conditions.

  1. We covered Survival Knives generally in our Bug Out Bag Essentials post but they are so useful it is worth re-hashing here. Generally you are better off getting a solid, full tang knife from a trusted knifemaker such as Ontario, Camillus, Becker, or Gerber. Stay away from hollow handled survival knives if at all possible. The small amount of storage space will not make up for the overall inferior build quality. For more information on choosing a good knife for any outdoors situation, check out our comprehensive guide by CLICKING HERE.
    Cell Phones: While cell phones are still not 100 percent reliable in the backcountry, service coverage and the usefulness of smartphones has increased dramatically in the last seven years. While cell phones are still questionably reliable in the backcountry, many adventurers will carry them anyway as they also serve as light cameras and can help with GPS and electronic compass navigation. Today, most of them also work as a flashlight. Regardless, they are worthless if the battery is dead, so plan accordingly.
