My survival bag and its contents
you have 8587 views haha and dont have one comment I thought I would break the ice but nice setup
Nice Stuff man i like this vid 5/5
mosquitos piss me off 2
very good start kit! exellent bag! vid was sweet, to the point. great job. good luck!
Having some water in the pack is always a good idea along with a few gallons in the car.
pack light, and always put the items you will need most at the top
The more you go out the more you’ll see what you need and want to take. The only thing I would leave out is that heavy shovel and hatchet. A small camp trowel and stout fixed blade knife like a Ka-Bar is all you need. Check out nutnfancys vids for some good info.
be sure and coat all your cotton balls in petroleum jelly burns slower and lights easier.
Please make some more videos..
well hidden, small denomination bills and gold (for bribes). Tobacco (for bribes or makeshift insecticide). Gotta prepare for urban survival too. Not all is woodland.
Sounds like alot of good ideas..
Thanks for sharing..
This kit is well good when you add more stuff it will be amazing
Yeah, if you use it from the start.
Better to have a compass and not need it, only weighs a few ounces.
A compass is used for plotting a pretty exact path. If you have a map, know where you’re at (broad area), and how to find north, then you can find and follow mountain ranges, rivers, valleys, etc.
If you know how to use a map and compass in the first place then you wouldn’t be lost, would you?
P.S. Nice bag, my bag is more geared for long term field sustainment, as if i needed to bug out for months, Once i get my whole bag together i’ll make a video.
Why the hell would you ditch the compass? Sometimes you cannot stay on roads, and you must navigate into woodland terrain, knowing your direction of travel can help.
Good approach, two big issues I see:
1) Lots of people have died with all their gear. Get out and use it and I guarantee there are at least two pieces that you won’t bother to pack again.
2)Fire: get a couple firesteels and throw the matches away. Nuff said.
Lots of survival forums online, just try to weed out the ‘armchair’ types from the folks who actually go outside.
Next question: you’re crossing a stream, miss a step and you’re wet. It’s you vs. your gear so you dump your pack. Now what?
Why have a compass without a map? Get a map, ditch the compass, and stay near roads (within sight). Flask is a waste. And most superglue can be used to suture.
And how’d you get the Dermabond?
I don’t go anywhere without TM 31-210 😉
Or Mein Kampf….and my Glock
And don’t forget the thermal space blanket!
550 cord is an excellent and necessary addition. A 12 hour candle (although hard to deal with in the summer). Sunglasses are a must. Dryer lint works as an excellent firestarter. Get some electrolyte tablets. A wool beanie for cold weather. Infantry grade boots. Magnesium firestarter. Waterproof matches. These are a few ideas. Not sure if you already thought of them but just trying to help.
THANK YOU for all the advice…this video is a few months old, I have been updating, I am on a limited budget so big updates will happen when I can ask my loving family for gifts….PLEASE stay tuned to my channel, I am out of school for the summer and will be making MANY videos about survival, preparation, and just random crap at times…thank you all and please keep in touch
awesome video. best suggestion would be to take things that are multi useful like the flask great idea alcohol has may uses; fuel(for fire), disinfectant, pain killer, moral booster, ect.. like i have about 6 15-min red type road flares. things are awesome. fire starter(wet or dry) lumination, signeling, hell with a little know how a few of them can be made into one exsposive never know when thats useful(non-violent)
