Survival kit for EDC

Recommended Posts

We have our survival kit in two backpacks, which is enough for at least 3 days. Water is separate, 80lt in 4 jugs. I do have a 30mt rope on the side of one of the bags! We also have other stuff stored with it, tent/sleeping bags/more cooking gear etc, and a list attached to the bag, so if there is time we grab the bags, some water, then start at the top of the list and grab whatever else we have time to grab, the list means we dont waste time thinking, its all there, must add some ammo to one of the bags, a gun might be useful...

Yeah I will take paracord over almost any other cordage because it will hold 550 lbs and more ( the breaking strentgh is really closer to 650-700lbs) is fairly cheap and incredibly versitile. I know this has already been said but just putting in my two cents. Plus it also comes in many different colors which can be good for signaling purposes plus since it has gotten into the mainstream as a "stylish" thing to wear you can now carry your cordage on you ( bracelet, necklace, etc) and it won't seem out of place.

Two things...one has already been mentioned...and that was the paracord braclet.

 

Second thing is a military style belt. The reason? you can unravel it and use it for fish line, if memory serves the standard style belt is 4lb test weight. I don't know what the weight of the more dress nylon style ones would be.

I think most everyone on this forum has a selection of Paracord, its like... a default must-have in your BOB, its a given around here, that you need paracord. And chosing variable ways to carry/use your paracord can be fun. SO u have a braclet, ok.. thats what ? 25 feet? Useful, but you'll probably need more.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
