The Survival Store's Large Ultimate Survival Kit
The Survival Stores large survival kit isn't your commonal garden survival tin with all those relatively sub standard bits of kit in it. This the real deal with really useful bits of kit that you really will use in any survival situation.
Remember the general priorities of survival -
● Shelter ● Fire ● Water ● Food ●
Many survival tins are packed with bits of kit that you will probably never need and have an over reliance on "food" (least important aspect). The vast majority of situations you will find yourself in is when it is cold and wet so we have found that if you rely on the first two - Shelter and Fire you will not go far wrong
Shelter - You will die of exposure in a matter of hours
Fire - Goes hand in hand with shelter, warmth and probably more immediately important is it's signal capabilities.
Water - goes without saying but many people have been known to survive days without water.
Food - The least important aspect as you can survive for weeks without food.
Our kit contains:
- A Maxpedition M-5 waistpack - An ideal larger waistpack that will carry all you need.
- A TBS Lynx Knife OR a TBS Boar Knife in Natural Micarta OR an ESEE Model 4 - All 3 choices represent a top quality cutting tool and are built to last. The knives are guaranteed for life.
- An ESEE AH1 Arrowhead - this not only makes a great small knife it is invaluable for hunting.
