Wilderness Survival Gear
Personal Survival Kit
|Wilderness survival kits contain different items than an Emergency survival kit for the home. Items you choose to include in your kit may also need to reflect the area and time of year of your adventure.|
A personal survival kit is intended to be kept on your person at all times while in the wild and opened only in emergency. In addition to the kit, you should also always have your essential tools listed below.
None of this does any good unless you have a plan and knowledge on how to use it. For example, if you don't know how to fish, the tiny fishing kit is just extra weight.

My 3 boys are going on a campout this coming weekend to earn their Wilderness Survival MB. We all agree this is best "list" they have found to use for their gear. Thank you!!!!Mar 19, 2017 - John G
Missing from this list (& the pamphlet) is a space blanket/emergency blanket. Alumized Mylar they reflect your body heat, which could keep you alive on a cold night. It is remarkable how warm they are. Also waterproof. They are very light and small. They are one use items, but they are also cheap. About $1 per if you buy 10 or do. Put one in first aid kit (treating shock), an extra in your pack, and a couple in your glove compartment. They should be part of every survival kitJan 29, 2018 - Ryan

I am taking the wilderness survival MB this summer camp and I have found this list to be very helpful. I think that adding some kind of bottle to this list would be helpful because you need somewhere to keep the water that you purify.Jun 22, 2018 - Ken
I would add a thermal blanket and a roll up water pouch to the list but otherwise this is a great list.
