A damn good knife-you won't get far without one if TSHTF. preferably a carbon steel,.Not a rambo knife, a good bushcraft one like a Mora knife.
Also, a firesteel, water purification (osmosis,tablets etc..), a good sheet of plastic for water collection (solar collection), wire for snares, a
good medipack ( bandages, plasters, antibiotics, ) a good lighter and fuel for lighter, cotton wool, mobile phone, batteries (for firelighting, wire
wool), a firearm- if it gets bad, people will try and take what you have, good energy canned goods in water, not brine (brine will mean you will need
to rehydrate), a small handheld mirror, wire saw, 7lb and 20lb fishing line reels with hooks in a variety of sizes, a billycan with spout, metal cup ,
AND a bloody good survival book- lofty wisemans SAS handbook (ray mears survival guide is ten times better but you'll be hard pressed to find it these
days) etc...invaluable if you aren't crafted in survival.
Warm clothing etc..
A BOB should be able to hold those items easily. the main item is a good knife, pack 3 if possible.
i would aslo highly recommend you learn how to forge a knife from steel- in a case where the sh@te really hits the fan, you will need to craft
weapons- a good source of the right steel is from van shockers, there are plenty of youtube videos on forging knives from this steel.
