Ia€™ve been known to over-pack items like this, and I usually get a good laugh from my friends (at my expense) when they see some of my a€?emergencya€? items.
A survival kit should be a stand-alone pack or container meant for one purpose: keep you alive in the event that youa€™re stuck in a remote area. Dangers like starvation and animal attacks are serious, but the more imminent dangers are usually heat stroke, hypothermia, and dehydration. Fire-starting: Lighter, waterproof matches, flint, or a magnifying glass could all qualify.
Shelter: Staying out of the elements can help you survive the dangers of frostbite, hypothermia, animals, and the suna€™s heat. Signaling: If youa€™re lost and have to spend the night in the woods, a fire can be a very effective signaling method.
Food: Sometimes ita€™s worth having a small snack in your survival kita€¦just to calm you down. Personal Medications: If you have a daily prescription, allergy EpiPen, an asthma inhaler, or an insulin needlea€¦make sure ita€™s with you at all times during your camp or hike! Your kit should be small enough that it doesna€™t take up too much space or weigh you down, but large enough that it can safe your life. An aviator's survival vest (SRU-21P), worn by helicopter crews, also contains survival items. This 15 inch survival knife with drop point blade features a thick quality stainless steel blade with serrated top edge. A few weeks ago an article was posted about Storing SHTF Survival Gear, this is a follow up to that article. The concept revolves around grouping similar items together.  Such as the canned goods being grouped together, the fishing gear on the same shelf, or close to each other, cold weather items stored in a box, which is close to other clothing or ALICE gear. My wife and I have a spare bedroom that my son uses when he comes to  visit.  Since the room is only used a few times a month, we decided to install some shelves and organize our survival gear stocks. The plan is to have two shelving units side by side, with each unit holding a certain type of survival gear. A 5 gallon bucket fits perfectly between the shelves, so I should have no problems storing my extra lures, trotline string, extra spools of monofilament line, extra hooks,,,. After watching Hurricane Irene hit the east coast, the fires in Texas, and the earthquake in the northeast,,,, do you think people will go into a long term panic buying mode? When there is a disaster, people usually kick into some kind of short term panic buying mode for a few weeks.   People will buy all of the batteries, flashlights, camp stoves, 1 pound propane bottles,,, and even ice chest stores have in stock. With the recent events, do you plan on changing your spending habits to buy a few more canned canned goods then normal. After Hurricane Rita, there were people complaining they did not have gas to drive to the food lines. What is wrong with people, the news says there is a major storm on the way, and they do not even buy some basic canned goods and gas up their car. A dog will guard its food bowl, probably because it does not know its going to be getting more food tomorrow. Depending on what instinct the person lives by – day to day, or planning a couple of months ahead, I think that affects how well people plan their lives and how well they plan for disasters. After a disaster, there are people that will try to return their generators and other unused supplies to the stores where they were bought, there are examples of this with Irene. The other type of person puts their generator in storage for the next storm, that is the farmer.
After Hurricane Andrew went through Florida, I remember hearing stories of the welfare families sitting around waiting for the government to show up with supplies. I have to ask the question, are we breeding a generation of people who do not know how to be self-sufficient? Some kind of disaster has happened, you and your family have moved to the bug out location, you open a #10 can of chili mac,,, and now what?
In other words, the SHTF, and now what?  How do you plan on cooking at your bug out location? In this article we are going to be looking at propane stoves, wood stoves, and wood grills. Two of the main reasons why I like propane – it stores well, and it has a multiple of uses.
At the camp we have a 250 gallon propane tank which is used to fuel the furnace and the stove.  When the power goes out, we can light a couple of the burners on the stove, and we are able to heat just about the whole house with just a couple of burners going. Besides 1 pound propane bottles, 250 gallon and 500 gallon propane tanks, there are the 20 pound propane bottles. Instead of using the 1 pound propane bottles, people can stockpile the 20 pound bottles, then get an adapter to power lanterns, stoves and other devices.
With gun cleaning supplies, people are probably more focused on stockpiling ammo, and shooting their firearms, that the forget about buying cleaning supplies. When my wife and I go to the local china-mart, sometimes I will go by the sporting goods section and pickup some various cleaning supplies. Maybe I can put together some kind of small tackle box with some patches, bore brushes, gun oil, screw drivers, punch pin,,,, bring it to the camp and leave it there.  That way if or when we need the supplies they will be there. Currently we have a small otters gun cleaning kit, but its only for a couple of calibers, and does not have any cloth patches and only a little bit of gun oil. Besides the cleaning supplies, something else that I thought about storing at the remote camp is spare parts, mainly spare firing pins, various springs and extractors. In fact, my buddy offered to give me a 30mm ammo can full of wolf to bring to the bug out location. For rifles like the 30-30, 30-06,,,, and the other hunting rifles are we are stockpiling is brass case ammo like remington, winchester and federal.
My food stockpile  has gone from simple stockpiling beans and rice plans, to something a little more complex.
In the ammunition category, my plans have gone from having various rounds stockpiled, to taking inventory, and trying to standardize my SHTF ammo stockpile. The fishing category is where I am currently having the most fun.  I have gone from just stockpiling fishing supplies to running trotlines and testing my fishing plans. About a year ago I decided to change my plans again and add mylar bags, and some homemade superpails to my SHTF food stockpile.


Instead of relying entirely on hunting for meat, and beans for protein, I decided its time to bite the bullet and start stockpiling #10 cans of freeze dried meats, fruit and certain vegetables. My current plans include #10 cans of freeze dried meats, fruit, veggies; mylar bags of rice, beans, oats, pasta,,,, MREs, Eversafe meals, canned goods, garden seeds, fruit trees, and places to hunt at the bug out location. Hunting ammo – this is your pointed softpoint, remington core-lokt,,,,,, stuff designed for hunting. In the fishing gear category, I have been stockpiling trotline string, hooks, leader material, weights, lures, snaps, swivels,,,, and just about everything else I can get my hands on. By stockpiling #10 cans of freeze dried foods, food stored in mylar bags, ammunition and fishing supplies, we have the ability to feed our family, hunt, provide security and fish.
Post your comments in this forum thread about Stockpiling food, ammo and fishing supplies for SHTF. With organizations like FEMA, and the preparedness divisions of the separate states telling people to stay prepared for a disaster, there is no reason not to listen. By previous examples, the government is either inept, unable, or unwilling to protect its citizens during a disaster. With the government willing to sacrifice safety in the name of profits for big business, is their 3 – 5 days worth of food and water sound advice? Long term survivalist – these are the people that store food in every closet, basement, closet and corner of their house. Top tier survivalist – these are the ones that have planned food production past one year, have access to a farm, have prepared a secure Bug Out Location, have land to garden and places to hunt and fish.
With tackle box and catfish bucket in hand, its time to take inventory of my fishing supplies.
The can opener syndrome is when your so focused on larger things, that you forget about the smaller items. An example of this happened a few months ago when my kids and I went to the camp for the night. Over the past year or so I had been more focused on planting fruit trees, stockpiling ammo and first aid supplies,,,, other odds and ends that I had totally overlooked some simple and inexpensive LED lights for the Bug Out Location. Also, please let us know in the comments if there are any pieces of survival gear we’ve missed and you think should be added to the list.
You’re much less likely to need the heat generation survival gear if you live in a desert state or a place that typically does not get cooler weather. Planning out what to eat after an emergency situation arises is one of the first things survivalists and preppers typically do. As mentioned before, you can technically build your own shelter if you have the proper survival gear tools at hand.
There’s a wide variety of survival clothing that would be helpful in emergency and survival situations. Some survivalists will, no doubt, want to stay as far away from these items as possible, as most of them will, over time, become useless in a state of complete apocalyptic devastation. In survival and SHTF situations, you’ll want to make sure to defend yourself and your family against both other people and animals.
Whether or not you plan on bugging out in an emergency SHTF or survival situation, you definitely want to have your important documents and some healthy finances on your side. Subscribe to More Than Just SurvivingNo fancy free e-book or shiny product bribe incentive offered here! 100 Hour Plus Emergency Candle can be replaced by a wick and a small mason jar filled with olive oil. Rather than a Lifestraw that filters 265 gallons, how about a Sawyer “million-gallon” filter? CR123 batteries pack a lot of power in a small package, and the lithium ones have a shelf life of 10 years, which is why they’re up on the list. The P38 can openers, in my experience, are finicky and not as easy to use as the Swing-A-Way, but personal preference here. With regards to the HAM radio, I honestly have very little experience with them, so I’ll defer to your opinion. As for the Chromebook, it is extremely durable with no moving parts or vents (no screws either) and Google works for itself (chasing those green dollars), I am not too concerned about the NSA in a post collapse world. I use my chromebook to store a few survival docs, topographic maps and personal data on it and charge it on the move using external power pack or a solar phone charger (it uses micro usb which is just awesome).
Extreme Beam makes rechargable 123 batteries, or replace with the 18650 rechargable battery. You might want to add a knife sharpener to your list, something that can also be used to sharpen your ax-head and machete as well. My survival gear is spread out all over a spare bedroom, couple of storage boxes and 2 closets. The unit is 6 feet tall, each shelf is 36 inches long, 17 inches wide and there is 15.75 inches between each shelf. Currently my fishing gear is being stored in 2 or 3 different places, in the closet, in a tackle box, in a fishing bucket,,,. I need to buy a couple of wire trays to store the smaller items in, such as the spools of trotline string. I guess they think the government will be there to help them within a few hours after the storm passes. Our ancestors dug roots, gathered berries, or killed a deer and our ancestors had food for a couple of days. The people had lived off food stamps and welfare for so long, they did not know how to provide for themselves. With the conveniences of grocery stores and fast food, people have grown accustomed to instant gratification.
Propane has several advantages – it stores well, it burns clean, and propane has multiple uses. I can buy the 2 pack of 1 pound propane bottles, store them at the camp, and the fuel never expires. One day I might pick up a 308 bore brush, the next day I might pick up a 9mm bore brush, the next day I might pick up a bottle of gun oil, the next day a bottle of powder solvent,,,,,, and so on. I am thinking of getting some American Tactical brass ammo or some American Eagle for target shooting.


Are you buying the cheap steel case stuff, or are you paying a little more for brass casing? So now we have mylar bags, MREs, canned goods, fruit trees and garden seeds.  In the mylar bags I stored beans, rice, oats, pancake mix, pasta,,,, and a few other things.
All families should have at least 7 days worth of food in their house, and a small stockpile of bottled water.  Some people stockpile MREs, while others may stockpile canned goods, beans and rice, or even freeze dried foods. When the swine flu was first reported in mexico, President obama refused to close to borders with mexico, citing companies would lose too much money of the borders were closed.
They may be stockpiling mountain house foods, storing rice, beans and oatmeal in mylar bags. A top tier survivalist would rely on stockpiled food in the short term, or until they can get their livestock and garden production up to sustainable levels. As a result, we’ve taken the time to create as much of a comprehensive list of all the different types of survival gear as possible. Check out the list and tell us if there’s anything you think you should add to your own personal list of survival gear! With the proper tools, you can typically make your own shelter in case you need to, or fix one that you already have. The survival gear below, therefore, will likely be stockpiled by all types of survivalists and preppers alike.
That being said, this type of gear can still be helpful in case of climate change or especially cold nights. That being said, it’s always nice to get an upper hand on shelter, as it will also help you stay warm and dry in case of an emergency or survival situation. Though the medicine you can stockpile will not be enough to fix every situation, having a basic first aid kit and some standard medicine will typically get you through a great deal of difficult situations.
There are a variety of ways which you can do this, although of course some work better than others.
Tradeable goods are also extremely helpful post-SHTF, which is why they’re on this list. If you like our blog and would like to get emailed whenever we publish a new post, fill in the form below and hit "Subscribe"! I haven’t found those batteries in any Big Box store or in any kind of rechargeable version. The cans are designed for 30+ year storage and the Mylar bags are perfect for hiking, camping, and survival. The problem is that neither radio can really take the beating of a survival situation, and the price of the FR 350 has become ridiculous since they were discontinued. I can understand the importance of silver because it it $20 an ingot and can be used for trade and barter. You can also purchase rechargeable ones (here, for example) that you can charge with your solar panel array. If I had to rely on a P38 or a the can opener on a swiss army knife for extended use I think I would go crazy! They are expensive, but yes the shelf life is long and they do come in rechargeable options, however, my particular local walmart doesn’t carry the rechargeable ones. I wrote in one comment that I think an iPod or even an unused touchscreen smartphone of any sort loaded with maps and info would be better. Instead of understanding where food comes from (the ground), people go to the local fast food joint and order a burger. Then there are the wide range of attachments for the bottles – lanterns, stoves and space heaters. By that example, when it comes down to profit or protecting the citizens, the government will protect the profits of big business over the safety and welfare of the citizens. Good survival tools can also help you to gather wood for creating fire for heat and to cook with, which is why tools are the very first thing on our list. Certainly look into attaining a firearm if this is legally permissible in your locality, and if you ever consider you may like to have it as a backup option. It may be more beneficial to stockpile urban survival gear that will actually be of use to you and those around you in a post-SHTF situation, but in case there’s something you forgot or ran out of, tradeable goods are definitely an asset.
We have a money-making market available for anyone who can produce an emergency radio that uses alternative power sources and is built to withstand a real crisis.
Gold is a whopping $1,250 a coin, and no one in a SHTF crisis is going to have change for a purchase. Ebay sells some batteries with built in USB ports although ports are notoriously fragile on phones so keep that in mind.
As Aspee says, personally I prefer rechargeable batteries in other types coupled with a solar charger. Some of your suggestions seem to be more relevant to a bug out situation, whereas the jar of oil is not. Survival kit includes a hollow grip with a compass top to store items within the knife itself, as well as additional pouches on the sheath to hold the rest.
Instead, scan this list for items that you might have forgotten or think would really compliment your needs as a survivalist. If you are interested in firearms, make sure to learn about them and train with them prior to an emergency situation. Gold should just be viewed as a sort of insurance policy for monetary collapse, not for teotwawki. Though it’s not full tang, mine has taken a lot of abuse and keeps performing admirably. Handcrank flashlights might be good for around the house, but their not good for lighting up a 10 acre field. NiMH lose charge at a rate of something like 50% over six months vs 10% or less per month for Lithium. Personally, I have lamps and lamp oil in stock for home use, plus emergency candles in my BOB.
