pretty much the same with a couple pack of smokes included can be used for trading purposes, 3 bic lighters, candles, depending on the season clothing winter time soon so lot's of wool, trauma kit, water purification kit, small vial of bleach in case the water treatment kit goes south, I try to stay away from the camo (don't want to attract attention) blending in works, detailed topo maps of surrounding areas, dehydrated food, 2 knives, some books, and a good sense of humor...

I have pretty much everything you would need to survive for about 3-7 days, changes depending on seasons. I also don't have camo I want to blend in, and if I get out in the wild I can always dirty up my cloths to blend in better. I carry some basic medications, ammo, two small propane tanks and a camp stove that screws on top, some light weight pans, and MREs. A couple gallons of water as well.

DUDE! MRE's are an awesome idea!


I also never even thought about a map... I also have my TECH4O watch that has a BPM Monitor and a compass as well as multiple time zones programmed. I should look into candles... Only reason i have camo is in case i have to get away and live on my own in the wild and also to hunt with. You dont want to try and chase down a deer wearing a bright pink polo do you!? O.o A large med kit is also a pretty good idea... I need to go to Army Surplus soon haha

I've got two. One is small that I actually carry with me every day. That is more of a day to day, I'm out of the house and got a headache, or A hurricane hits and it takes me an hour to get home type of thing. I live 9 miles from work in a highly populated suburban area.

My bigger, "survival" back is actually an external frame backpack that has everything one would need for a BASIC camping trip. But basic I mean, Tarp not a tent, camp fire not a stove, small tea light candles and camping candle lanters not an electric or gas lantern. Knife, first aid kits, small fishing kit with net, change of clothes including socks and Teva type sandels (great in case your feet get wet), flashlight and poncho. I also have a compass and a fire starting kit as well.

Edith, forgot 550 cord, multi tool and zip lock bags with some TP as well.

The TP is a stupendous idea! Basically no one wants anything that you would have to depend on an outside fuel source for like propane, gas lanterns, electric tools... I personally would like to think I could live without all that stuff... after hearing what you guys pack I think I need to hit the outdoor stores and reevaluate my pack haha!

Yeah the TP is a "luxury" item. small, compacts easily and not much, but it's really nice to have when it counts.

For fire I have at least 3, maybe 4 ways to start fire. lighter, fire steel, waterproof matches and some lighters. for fuel I could be hosed if it's raining bad ( and here in FLA that is often), but I also have some cotton balls soaked with petroleum jelly in small zip lock bags to hopefully help.

also, couple other things I forgot that are pretty important.

Water purification tablets, and I also have a small pump type water filter with 4 collapsable water "bags" and a collapsable 5 gallon water tank. That one works good at home just in case we go into a SHORT mandatory boil alert.

Water purification is a MUST! I am always down to pull some Bear Grylls type of stuff and boil water in a plastic bottle But i know what you mean, i have even gone as far as considering getting one of those collapsable shower things that you can heat, that way you have something to contain large amounts of water, you have a shower, and you have drinking water once its been boiled. I need to find me a flint kit somewhere... Alcohol soaked 100% cotton balls work well too, you can light them 100 times over and they never get burned, however they make a super hot fire ball (youtube taught me that, i have yet to try it) but i did catch my kitchen counter on fire using rubbing alcohol and i let it burn for a while before i put it out and it didnt damage anything at all...

Check out that craft store, Micheals. They have tons of useful stuff. Anything from framing wire you could use as a snare to small plastic spray bottles I put Alcohol and Peroxide in for my first aide kit. you can also fill one (they are 2.5oz I believe) with bleach which is VERY useful. You can use it to disinfect your hands, food prep areas or even to make water drinkable.

For the flint kit (If you mean the fire steel?) I bought mine from REI.
http://www.rei.com/product/810628/li...0-fire-starter

here are the matches I bought as well. I stuck a cottonball in the cap and then screwed it back down to keep them from moving around in the case.
http://www.rei.com/product/820267/uc...roof-match-kit

And don't forget your bug spray. Bullfrog has one that is also a sunblock which is nice.

also, I have two dogs. I stuck a couple of cheapy leashes in there (which could always be used for soemthing else as well) and these lights. These can come in handy if you are in a wooded area and the dogs are out doingt heir business. If they see an animal and take off that red flashing light on their collar at night will help find them.

http://www.rei.com/product/825285/ru...acon-pet-light

and I stuck this in there just in case as well.

Our "outdoor world" IS Basspro shop. I got a number of things from there. Backpacks, the sandles, some small things like camping gear repair kits.

I will look through both REI and Bass Pro and put some links in here with stuff I have. I'm sure I won't have everything but maybe some will spark an idea or remind you (and me) of something you need...

REI stuff. Keep in mind, my bigger bag is also a camping backpack so there maybe stuff in here that you wouldn't need/want as a jump bag. It's kept in my garage so room is not an issue and with everything it only weights about 30-35pounds. which for an external frame backpack is really nothing.

These can be used to wash dishes and also as a dog bowl. They collapse down REALLY small.

Titanium cookware (it's expensive but it's super light)

mugs for coffee or even water.

pocket stove. I just bought this, haven't used it.
http://www.rei.com/product/653343/esbit-pocket-stove

Hammock. I've slept in it. It's nice just to chill out in it as well. I love hammocks. haha
http://www.rei.com/product/783003/by...veller-hammock

Maglite. Mine are black, but I've got several of these. The thing is amazing, it's got high, low and a strobe. I've actually got one of these on my AR.
http://www.rei.com/product/821394/ma...led-flashlight

Tarp. I have a few of these. I take what I think I'll need but they are nice to put on the ground to sleep on and then have another over you. Keeps the water away better. You do still need some sort of sleeping pad to stay warm.
http://www.rei.com/product/796851/bl...y-tarp-14-x-12

candle lantern. You'd be surprised how much light it throws off. The candles last all night and they are cheap.
http://www.rei.com/product/637736/re...y-kit-aluminum

http://www.rei.com/product/410128/re...antern-candles

Don't know if these work. the reviews are mixed. I should try them in the back yard.
http://www.rei.com/product/638825/uc...onella-candles

They have the tealight ones too.
http://www.rei.com/product/611181/uc...candle-lantern

water bottles

collapsable canteen.
http://www.rei.com/product/670588/na...ntene-32-fl-oz

water tablets
http://www.rei.com/product/695229/ka...-package-of-30

water filter. I also have a set of replacement filters. I don't usually bring them with me as they last a long time so they are not going to go bad on a 2 or 3 day trip.
http://www.rei.com/product/750927/ka...o-water-filter

Multitool
http://www.rei.com/product/727699/ge...n-multi-pliers

two way radios. These are not the exact ones I have but mine are dark green motos. They also have the NOAA weather band build in.
http://www.rei.com/product/815266/mo...-radios-2-pack

Hand crank radio. This is not the one I have, and I paid no where near $50. Check amazon, I think I paid $20 for the one I have? Mine also has the light build in as well as a USB charger port.

5-in-1 survival "thing". I have this in my day bag. the whistle could be handy and it's a nice water proof case as well.
http://www.rei.com/product/745760/co...1-survival-aid

I keep the change of clothes I have in one of these dry bags.
http://www.rei.com/product/730882/se...ssion-dry-sack

These mesh bags I found are nice to keep things organized. Like I put the cooking stuff in one, the lighting stuff in another... It's a personal thing, and definitely not needed.
http://www.rei.com/product/780947/ou...s-package-of-3

The all popular signal mirror.
http://www.rei.com/product/745496/co...rweight-mirror

This comes in handly for things like digging a whole to, well do your business in. it folds pretty small and it's plastic so it's light. probably one of those things that comes in handy for camping (usually in a park of some kind) but not so much in a survival scenario. haha
http://www.rei.com/product/814666/se...-pocket-trowel

concentrated soap. They have a version for dishes as well.
http://www.rei.com/product/799977/se...h-soap-3-fl-oz

camp towel. I have one medium one and one small one. they come in handy more times than you'd think.
http://www.rei.com/product/814751/ms...-towel-30-x-12
http://www.rei.com/product/783072/re...owel-215-x-115

mole skin. If you don't take care of your feet, you're screwed. camping or survival.
http://www.rei.com/product/121044/dr...-moleskin-plus

knife sharpener
http://www.rei.com/product/685954/sm...-and-fine-grit


Oh, I've also had my eye on this tent just in case you were looking in that direction. Ive done quite a bit of research, and for me, the GF (she's small) and two small dogs, the 4 person will be much better.
http://www.rei.com/product/794298/rei-half-dome-4-tent


BassPro stuff.

first aid kit. I've also added things like the alcohol and peroxide bottles, safety pins, extra swabs and bandages..
http://www.basspro.com/Bass-Pro-Shop...ct/82559/68472

Stretch cords. not these exactly, but I have some. Come in handy to strap stuff to your backpack or secure the tarp.
http://www.basspro.com/Coghlans-Stre...t/59944/100934


This is the big collapsable water carrier I mentioned before. I keep this at home, this is not in my bag.
http://www.basspro.com/FoldACarrier-...ct/23634/58012

sewing kit. I have a basic one from that Michaels store.
http://www.basspro.com/Gear-Aid-Outd...10222583/66464

here's a small bottle kit. Again, I got mine at Micheals, but mostly because I couldn't find anything like this when I did buy mine.
http://www.basspro.com/Coleman-Bagge...10213937/59504




Couple other things.

Check for sales, I bought a very nice, thin and light weight Columbia rain gear set for about $40, pants and jacket.

Buy a belt if you don't normally wear one.

Buy some different tapes. I have masking tape, duct tape and gorilla tape. Use some sort of stick and wrap a decent amount around the stick. I have probably 5-6ft of each. They can be used for anything from splints to fixing a hole in the tarp to keep rain out.

In a true survival SHTF type of scenario, buy a secure USB thumb drive. Scan or take photos of important documents. DL, passport, SS card, vehicle titles, land deeds, birth certs. Store it someplace safe until you need to GTFO. Which reminds me, since I moved, I have to see where mine is. haha.

Also go to the supermarket and buy some of the single serve coffee packs. Stick those or tea bags in some small zip lock bags with a few packets of sugar, salt and pepper (those you can get at McDonalds or someplace like that) and make a complete serving. That way if it's raining or something you only need to open ONE seriving and don't ruin a whole pack of coffee or tea bags.

I'm not including obvious other things like ammo and firearms. I also have 3 knives, one in the multi tool, one folding spiderco and a K-bar. For camping I will bring my Ruger .22 with me. Most parks didn't allow firearms until recently. I think Obama actually made it legal in all federal parks to allow them. I still don't want to bring something super loud and obvious, plus I'm not in Grizzly territory so I don't need something like my S&W 500. I typically carry a Beretta 9mm on my so sometimes I'll just bring that instead of the 22.

I guess for a SHTF situation, I'm not sure what I'd bring. I'd really have to think about that. I would want a .22LR of some sort because the ammo is super cheap and super easy to carry. It is great for small game so it's good in a pinch to go hunting with. And just to save on size, I guess I'd take one of the pistols over the rifle. Then I'd also want something that could A) reach out and touch someone (or something) if I needed to for defense or hunting so I'd want either my .270 or my AR. Again, the cheapness of the ammo and possibly in case you had to raid someone else's ammo pile, the AR would probably be more likely to be able to find ammo for. The ammo isn't too terrible bad to carry and it could take something on the smaller end of the big game I guess with a well placed shot.

Another option for firearms is the Thompson Center line. You can buy a handgun and then have barrels for everything from 22LR up to 7mm mag. Not sure if that would be a good choice or not. They are only single shot so that's a huge drawback.

See the bottom of my last post. I'd like to hear people's input on what they would bring. I thought about my choices for all of 2.493 minutes. So they are by no means well thought out. I definitely want the .22 pistol but I'm curious about the long gun, if you'd even bring one.
