The list author says: "Thanks for checking out my list. This is by no means a perfect list, just adding things that I have found on amazon. This list will grow as I add more items, there are so many clothing items to think about that I haven't added everything yet and I'm sure that I missed other items that I have in my kit. Some things like the cooking set I didn't buy because I had another set from a long time ago that works fine. My main intention with this is so that you don't waste your money buying inferior products, sometimes paying more for a particular item will save you more in the long run.s"
"Great for one handed-operation.. in case your hand gets burnt. You might opt for Strike Force instead since it can hold wet tinder in the case. I have a firekit that I made with an old fishing box, so I opted for the blastmatch."
"I haven't used this yet because I don't want to mess up the lifespan.. After seeing how some Katadyn's sell for over 250 now, this is a great bargain. Get extra filters and accessories. I got a maxpedition pouch that this will fit into."
"I actually just got a blue tarp with the silver side but this one looks a little better. Some people get a space blanket that is heavy duty on one side as well. I might even use camo paint on the blue side and paint a red and white triangle on the silver side for signaling an emergency"
"I don't own this knife, I'm still deciding if I want to get a Pathfinder, Bear Grylls, or something else. I might get a machete since I have other knives like a Gerber pocketknife, a skinning knife that is full tang from my kitchenware, and other cheap survival knives."
"This comes with a hatclip and also a small lanyard to wear around your neck or you can make one with paracord.. i suggest getting 2 of these. 1 to use and another to add to your neck knife survival kit."
"watches should be something that will last for years. i don't own this watch but you can check out the other Timex camper models.. Make sure it is analog, and look into getting one that is solar powered. I own an analog/solar watch but it is a nice metal one so i've been keeping an eye out for a waterproof/nylon kind."
