    All you trully need to survive in the wild is knowledge. Those who argue with this would die if they were stranded with nothing but the clothes on their back.

    I take it you’re unfamilar with the phrase HYOH. It means hike your own hike. And let others do the same. This videos and others like it are only suggestions. Take them as such.

    Oh man I disagree with just about everything this guy says. That dinky little skateboard backpack isn’t sufficient and will tear under any real use. All those pockets and zippers are unnecessary; they only reduce the amount of usable space for large objects. I’d opt for a small internal frame hiking pack with a single large compartment.

    Also, get a real knife. At least 6 or 7″ full tang fixed blade knife is vital for any real survival situation. What can you do with a silly little folder knife?

    A water bottle, flishlight, and a knife.UHa! What is the number 1 killer in a survival situtation? If you said exposure you’re right. So where is the mention of a fire starter (that will work in any condition)and that little knife is useless for fire making(you need at least a 5or6 inch blade with a full tang. Dude I don’t mean to sound like i’m being cruel to you but there are a lot watching and are being misled into thinking that your videos will keep them alive if they do what you say.Sorry!

    another major thing u should have is a signal mirror…4 major things: water, signal mirror, flashlight, and a knife

    dude your really interesting and have good tips but make your oqn vids man expert village makes them too short and muddles them up

    Just found you. Terrific vids!! But you need to code them, so the new viewer, like me, can watch them in order or the sequence they were made. Keep up the good work!!

    Flash light for the nite to minimise fright, right? I´d trade it for the magnesium flint fire starter, or at least i´d carry it on me instead of the flashlight. It can go in the backpack, as you said the items you use most should go in your pocket .And that little knife, although it´s sharp, wont be able to do no spliting. How about a kabar marine knife or even a pilot survival one or a S.O.G., any thing that can do splitting and batoning? Any way I like your vds. Keep up with the good job.

    look at the size of that tarp. why not take a poncho that will dbl up as a jacket and a shelter. i’ve been looking at all this guys vids and he has alot of oversized stuff!

    dude, nutnfancy rules. and go with the RC-3. not Rat 3

  16. John031989 | May 3, 2010 at 1:29 pm |

    My mistake…You know how it is on youtube lol.

  17. why are you so defensive? im a fan of nutnfancy as well as fixed blade knives whats to be ashamed about that? Maybe you mistook the tone of the comment or something read it again- it wasnt meant in a negative tone whatsoever.

  18. John031989 | May 3, 2010 at 2:41 pm |

    what’s that supposed to mean? i was just pointing out the advantages of a fixed blade in the wilderness. I’m not sayin take a Busse or a RTAK II in your survival kit.

  19. we have a nutnfacy dude here!

  20. John031989 | May 3, 2010 at 3:23 pm |

    Minor criticism: a fixed blade knife, even a small one like a RAT 3, is a lot stronger and more capable at survival tasks (especially firewood processing).

  21. kingboru121 | May 3, 2010 at 3:38 pm |

    forgot* just realised that

  22. kingboru121 | May 3, 2010 at 4:32 pm |

    He forgote one important thing: A lighter…of course thats what his compartment on his backpack is for but cmon man carry a bic or zippo lighter as well.

    one thing for people to consider would be to check out a quality light hiking pack, like arcteryx, gregory, etc. since military gear that i have used (when i was in the military) was heavier and less comfortable. Military stuff is more durable, but if you don’t intend to crawl through barbwire and trenches it is sometimes a bit porcine. If people don’t believe me look at what organizations like NOLS use etc.
