Good list. I would also suggest maps for the area you're in and a GPS as well as a compass. Also, having the right clothing might be critically important, depending on the time of year and where you are. A space blanket is good, but boots, gloves, hat, coat and maybe long underwear might be a good idea too.

Let's not forget to mention to the good folks that cotton is a horrible idea if not layered with other material. Hypothermia is bee-yotch, or so I am told.

Thanks for putting the list together.

It may come useful for people looking for a starting point for getting their own kit together.

Good list. Man, I love lists like this.

Here's a list of what I'd like to see more of on this forum:

  • Survival Kit lists
  • Food storage lists
  • SHTF prep lists
  • Reading lists
  • Lists of lists :-)

Seems like a lot to lug around when I'm 'Back Country' hunting or hiking...

How about you pare that down to something that will fit in a knife sheath and small belt pouch!
