Let's see your survival kit!

Recommended Posts

Just got back from a short hike in the Canadian Rockies, and about to go back out tomorrow. As I was airing out my gear I figured I'd take a picture of it, mostly because I like to see how my kit evolves year by year, and then I thought it'd be cool to see everyone else's kit.

So, spill your survival kit / hiking bag / bug-out pack / zombie grab-and-go bag, and post a picture of it!

Here's mine...as of today. (Minus a few things here and there.)


For those who are interested, this is the list:

60L short pack

2L water

1L fuel

burner + kettle

rain pouch

2.5" sleeping pad

-12C pheonix hybrid mummy sleeping bag

swiss army knife


LED lantern


head lamp



50' allpurpose rope

leather gloves

bag of dehydrated food

outer rain shell + hat

coffee grounds + toothbrush

blister bomber, pens, tooth cleaner pills, string, water purifier pills

drysack for clothes

Asolo power matic boots

maverick 88 12 gauge

I'll take a pic of my car bag, but I'm a little particular about what's in my actual BOBs, and especially what's in my caches. ;)

Not photo (public) material, IMO!

Now I have a ton of just gear, and guns, and knives, but some of it doesn't stay in containers, or at least not travel containers...

Thanks - T
