I searched but didn't find a thread on this. This isn't advertising either, just show and tell.
We all have our favorite item/s for what ever reason.
Lets share or most treasured articles of outdoor necessity
and possibly help those less knowledgeable find a trusted companion.


My favorite is my Tomahawk, A 2hawks longhunter bought from Pathfinder store which they call the pathfinder scout. the difference between the two is the one bought from pathfinder has the logo stamped on the side. This is the 2hawks one

anyway, this goes with me every time i leave home. its durable,holds an edge well, and it will do any reasonable chore i ask of it.

So,Whats yours?

Evenin',

My must have piece of survival equipment?
Not even a contest.
Jack Danials...as much of it as I can carry because without it, people are going to die!
Seriously now, it would have to be my survival knife...

www.harborfreight.com...

(Sorry I can't just post the pic of it...Win7 doesn't like the ATS pic gallery system)

Mind you if that axe of yours came with a hollowed out handle for extra "storage"...I'd consider retiring my blade.

-Peace-

My dog.

He's a good companion (listens never argues), good hunter and no one will ever sneak up on me while he's around.

My favourite, best, and most important piece of survival/camping/outdoor 'equipment' is my brain.

Without it, nothing else matters.

As much as i would've said my dog also, i don't see her as equipment but by far more trustworthy than any human i know

I love my kelly kettle, I just love it to bits. Even on a winter camping trip it stays lit and keeps me warm.
Also I have a sheepskin coat like this.



Cost me a pint and I just found out they go for 200 quid
...trouble with the coat is it is too warm and heavy but at least I get some exercise when wearing it.

Also Bane wears this type of coat in the Batman movie
Its an M1909 Swedish Military jacket.

Best coat I have ever owned or ever will own.
Also holy crap I just did a little more research and it is from WW2 era

You're right not a piece of equipment but a necessity.

Equipment I would be generic and say a good pair of Timberlands. (boots.)

Wow, what's with all of the GLP like responses on this thread? Way to contribute quality content!

Besides of course an appropriate knife, I really like having the SPOT with me. An extra $10 a year on the SPOT service package gets me rescued anywhere in the world and covers $50,000 in rescue liability twice a year. It's nice knowing people will know where I am and that I am in trouble at the press of a button.

My sleep system...you can't replace a good nights sleep.

I am good for about minus 40.

Sorry Boymonkey...was replying to the OP.

I'm gonna cheat here ... a lot.
Favorite survival: definitely 'my' AR15 rig. That's a multi-cheat, but survival requires that. Not mine, but it suffices. I picked the AR over the AK based on the availability of brass for reloading. From there, I added easily removable optics.


Favorite camping: I got four of these for $100. That deal was, in fact, what prompted me into developing multiple bug-out sites. Low profile/visibility, waterproof, keeps you and your equipment out of contact with the ground, keeps bugs off you at night. Easy to set-up and easy to walk away from if you have to, but you know you'll miss its convenience if you do.


Favorite outdoor: Okay, maybe I've cheated enough. Keeping this one simple.
I can't think of another piece of gear that is more consistently with me when I'm 'outdoors' ... except my Glock. Another member had mentioned boots already.

A nice camper trailer with a toilet is my choice. It doesn't need air conditioning, but a gas stove is always good...can't forget the furnace either. Fridge for the beer is essential for survival.

Thats just plain cheating, except the beer, beer has water in it, and calories. Beer is the elixer of life. porkchop in a can

You beat me to it!
I guess my other choice is my magnesium fire starter, I don't like being cold.

The camper is a sort of can and it contains a can. Why do we have to suffer in a survival situation. A camper can be hidden in the backwoods. I suppose a wood cook stove in it would be practical. Just think of it as a big bug out bag.
