Essential Survival Gear

Drew Ebanks
The list author says: "So I was looking for some gear on here a few months back but after hours/days/months of research I ended up with a list of essential gear for making it out alive in most every situation. This is for the survival enthusiast and all of those just looking for good gear to have while hiking, camping, or just plain preparing for the end of the world and or zombie apocalypse. This list is a bit comprehensive but the point is to keep fully stocked with supplies and tools, only a small portion of these items would be used for a day-hike or for your EDC and or Bug Out Bag. I would split this list up into Home Protection, Car Gear, and Gear to carry. (I did not include guns, that's a whole other list) Take a look and please give feedback:"
