Recently bought the Ultimate Survival kit and i wanted to share it with my fellow ATS'ers

Like my instinct was pushing me to buy one ASAP
so i went on a shopping spree and bought for more then 200$ of prepper stuff
like i had some money to spare .. but my mind was clear that i needed a survival bag

Can be usefull to me or anyone in need that cross my path
if i die before even touching it .. it will serve and help anyone who find the bag
it will still be usefull after 50 or 100 yrs

Better be prepared then not ..i will not touch the bag until the SHTF

First of all you need something to hold everything.. like a big robbust bag

1 Big robbust Outdoor bag


And this is whats inside :

1 Small sleeping bag

1 Robbust rope (4-5m dont remember)

1 Folding Shovel (almost 3 foot when put together)


1 Big Medical kit


1 Big Survival kit



Kit contains 48-hour emergency candles, two 12-hour light sticks, one first aid kit, four disposable hand warmers, one bottle water purification tablet, two emergency ponchos

Also includes two 36-hour survival candles, two emergency blankets, two 6-hour camp heat cookers, one headlight and reusable storage box


1 Bag of 12 Fire Sticks

1 Micro fishing pole (1 foot long)

1 Cooking kit

1 Field glasses (small compact one)

1 Bottle of lighter liquid (250ml)

+ Other (Small thing):
Flashlight
Batteries
Wood matches
Multi purpose knife
Water Filters
etc etc ..

Im sure im forgeting a few things

I also want to buy a small portable hamac, small tent
and iluminative fuses (the red ones)

Im also considering buying survival stuff online
anyone got a good reliable site to order any kind of stuff ?
dry food included

Thanks

Time to share YOUR bag and give ideas to others
because we are in a critical time .. cant lose time anymore
when TSHTF you will no more be able to acquire such survival kit

Right on!
I was just over on the new National Geo Preppers thread lamenting some of the real fruit loops on that TV show but you have a GREAT survival kit there. I'm envious. My gear is parted together over years and as it could be gotten here and there. Nothing so compact and good to go in a hurry. Congrats!

hi op

heres my little tip

some of us need a couple of phooos a day
so instead of lugging around toilet paper
i use refresher wipes
the little things you get at kfc to wipe yourself
they are very small to carry and cleans your bum at the same time lol

Compact ... Yes
Good to go in a hurry .. Yes

But quite heavy
Also there is No food No water in that bag ( no more space)
I have a small reserve of food and water bottles at home .. but
i wont be able to carry everything needed to live if im on foot


This is where the none heavy dry food is important
water is heavy has hell.. this is why i have carbon filters (4) (size of a small red bull can)

Ready to share my kit with anyone when the time comes
so we have higher chance of survive when the system goes down

hya
you could also leave the flint..
E.g
9mm handgun
take a shell and remove the bullet
stuff a piece of rag into the cartridge
stick the barrel of the gun into your kindling and shoot
starts a fire everytime

I'd get some para chord, its very thin but super strong so you can fit a huge length in without taking up much room (4-5m's is way too little). I wouldn't bother with a hammock, you're a sitting duck in it. I'd get a small military style green/urban pattern tarp to be an improvised tent roof/hoochie. Could consider a tent if going by vehicle or in snow etc but otherwise they weigh too much. I'd get a dynamo (wind up) torch/radio/mobile phone charger, a kindle with a solar charging array and upload onto it as many decent survival books as you can (weapons and manufacturing, traps/snares, food/cooking, gardening, electrical/mechanical repairs, first aid(try "where there is no doctor" for a start, its a free download from their site).
Have you got a sharpener for the knife? Grab some small soft but strong wire for snares etc. Chuck in a few spare bin liners to water proof bag etc. Military style food kits are awesome but very expensive here in Oz unless you have a mate that can knock them off for you. Compass and maps of area and intended plan of where to go. Some people even plan by first day I should be here so I will dig a hole of of anyones sight and bury water/supplies etc for if SHTF. Whilst matches are good you can personally get more bang for your buck with fire steel starters. Don't forget very good bartering supplies, toilet paper, matches, panadol/headache tablets, femine sanitary products, batteries and so forth. Always factor on the fact that people won't be prepared so you can get great exchange rates for cheap stuff when SHTF.
There is also the debate on what type/if you should carry weapons/firearms but I'll leave it up to you. It's pretty easy to make a single shot shotgun for about $50 if you have the right tools in the home shed. Look up Ragnar Benson's books on the net if you want to get raided by the FBI, plenty of books covering topics from caching, survival, fighting big brother, and weapon manufacture. Personally I don't think anythings worth getting into a fire fight when SHTF and you're better off staying hidden and not drawing attention to yourself. Ragnar does suggest that in survival situations sitting around with a fishing rod is wasteful of your energy and resources and you need to just operate like an old trapper working the game trails with fish traps, multiple lines with hooks, snares etc and just patrol them looking for food thats ended up stuck/trapped or hooked. Nice start though, you are already way ahead of the general population. When SHTF there are only survivors and protein sources, you're already up in the pack of being the eaters.......

Congratulations. The money you spent is well worth the peace of mind. Just knowing that in the event of an all out emergency, you have the basics in hand. You are now a step ahead of the average Joe. Doesn't it feel good....

I agree with You totally !! The best kit is education ! Anyone who wants to survive when shtf needs the skills to make it through maybe years of hardships ? Ever really try and start a fire without matches and tons of paper ? It's not easy , now is the time to practice not when you're hungry and freezing !!

If you want an incredible firestarter that will light every time and weighs nothing, try this:

Collect all of your dryer lint for a month. Believe it or not, when compressed, you can put 20-30 sheets in a Sucrets can. Fill it up, drip wax around the seal or put it in a small baggie. Use just a small piece at a time and you will not believe the fire it will start. Weighs nothing, costs nothing but is worth everything!

I was caught in the woods for a weekend totally unprepared, turned around while hunting and a storm came up. The lint in the bottom of my pack was the only dry thing I could find and mae a bad experience bearable.

Bugging out is for city dwellers, as very well they must. Urban and suburban is for hunkering down WITH neighbors. Only as a stronghold of many is there any serious chance of very long term survival (+1 yr). Either a stronghold of raiding locusts or a stronghold of defenders. Both have their risks, benefits, and disadvantages depending on the location, metrics of the incident, spirit of the stronghold.

I'm glad to see your serious about providing for yourself in emergencies. Items one might wish to carry will depend on where you are, what season it is and what skill sets you have to obtain necessities from the wild. The more you know the less you need to carry.

Does your kit include:
Backpack?
Water filter?
Cooking container?
Vessel to carry water in?
A quality fixed blade knife?
Rain gear?
Snares?
Field guide to wild edible plants?
Extra personal items such as eyeglasses, contacts, hearing aid batteries, dentures, etc?
Prescription medications you may be on?
A weapon for self defense?
Maps of the area you might find yourself in?

Here's my list with links for where to get many items

I have shopped with these guys
www.bridensolutions.ca...

I am rigged for canoe tripping
so all the basics are covered there
I think it is a good idea to go have fun surviving so that come the day
so things aren't a big surprise.

At least you are aware of that. I know a few people who have BOBs that they couldn't carry for 1kM over flat terrain. When I tell them that, they usually tell me that if TSHTF they would force themselves to carry it. I tell them their body won't let them (they're not the fittest people).

I am reasonably fit and have a lot of solo bush experience, and I don't carry more than 25kg.
