Have you covered all your bases?

There is a ton of information out there on what you should have in your survival kit, whether its for urban or rural survival situations. So why am I adding to the mass of information? Because it never hurts to get another perspective take on it.

What’s in a Survival Kit?

As you read through what is in the kit, and start comparing to what you have in yours, or what you intend to put in yours, its important to remember that you should not be so focused on the actual gear, but more on what your actual needs are.

Before we move on to what’s actually in the kit, lets make sure you have covered all your bases.

  • Personal safety. This includes ways to not be in trouble in the first place, and first aid gear.
  • Core body temp. Items that will help us stay warm, clothes, shelter, and fire making materials.
  • Hydrated. Anything that will help us stay hydrated. Carrying water itself, or water filters.
  • Food. Calories are energy, they come in many forms, pack what you can comfortably carry.

One more thing before we get into the list of items in the kit. The below video is from Nature Reliance by a guy named Craig Caudill. In the video he discusses what is in HIS kit, and not necessarily will be in yours.
