Survival Equipment- Miscellanous Gear

K. T. Dao
The list author says: "This list is an expansion of the previous, "Basics and Storage". Obviously, the more essential items are left out here, but these items should be more useful to those with more experience in camping or other outdoor-based survival."
Ka-Bar 2-1212-3 Black Fighting Knife
Ka-Bar 2-1212-3 Black Fighting Knife
"The KA-BAR is one of the finer knives out there; the serrated portion may be a bit difficult to sharpen in a survival situation, but the quality of the steel should buy you some time to get acquainted with your sharpener/whetstone before that happens."
12' x 20' Dry Top Heavy Duty White Full Size 10-mil Poly Tarp item #312201
12' x 20' Dry Top Heavy Duty White Full Size 10-mil Poly Tarp item #312201
"Chances are that you won't need or use it, but in a pinch, this can serve as rainproofing for a shelter or other things (rain/dew-collection sheet, etc)."
Guide Gear Minus 15 Degrees Sleeping Bag Green
Guide Gear Minus 15 Degrees Sleeping Bag Green
"If you can spare the bulk, this should offer comfort in unknown and hostile terrain. A simple survival-blanket should be enough for most situations, though."
Gerber 30-000075 E-Tool Folding Spade with Serrated Blade
Gerber 30-000075 E-Tool Folding Spade with Serrated Blade
"A folding, high-quality shovel, for when carrying a fixed-blade shovel is not an option."
GREY 50% WOOL RESCUE BLANKET
GREY 50% WOOL RESCUE BLANKET
"In case you do not have space for a sleeping bag."
Coghlans Waterproof Matches 10 Pack
Coghlans Waterproof Matches 10 Pack
"Redundancy is your friend in survival; these matches can be your backup to the backup firestarter."
Texsport Black Ice The Scouter Hard Anodized Cook Set
Texsport Black Ice The Scouter Hard Anodized Cook Set
"An upgrade from the one-person mess kits, this set might take up a bit more space, but is much better suited for long-term survival and allows for provisions for two."
Therm-A-Rest RidgeRest Sleeping Pad
Therm-A-Rest RidgeRest Sleeping Pad
"If you're okay with sleeping on the ground, this ultralight sleeping "pad" will take up less space than either the sleeping bag or the rescue blanket; it can also be used alongside them."
Smith's PP1 Pocket Pal Multifunction Sharpener
Smith's PP1 Pocket Pal Multifunction Sharpener
"Good for both straight and serrated edges; it'll be much easier to sharpen straight blades than serrated ones, though. Make sure to practice and become proficient with it before a survival situation arises."
1 X Genuine Issue Magnesium Survival Firestarter
1 X Genuine Issue Magnesium Survival Firestarter
"Occasionally, you may find yourself in a situation where you cannot use the Firesteel or have run out of pocket tinder from the compact survival kit; magnesium burns very hot and should be able to ignite even in wet conditions."
DMT W7F Diamond Whetstone Mini Diamond Stone - Fine
DMT W7F Diamond Whetstone Mini Diamond Stone - Fine
"This whetstone is on the small side, but it should sharpen even large knives. Mind your fingers during use."
Ultimate Survival Technologies SaberCut Saw (Black)
Ultimate Survival Technologies SaberCut Saw (Black)
"A mobile manual saw, for extended survival situations. The teeth may or may not be sharpen-able with the Smith tool, so use sparingly; once it goes dull, experiment to find out what method could work in the field."
Ka-Bar 2-1249-9 Kukri
Ka-Bar 2-1249-9 Kukri
"Halfway between a machete and an axe, the Kukri will perform in the roles of both equally well."
Rocky Men's Postal TMC 8 Inch Work Boot
Rocky Men's Postal TMC 8 Inch Work Boot
"Instead of going for the rubber trench boots, use these current-gen duty boots; they're based on the design of the much more comfortable hiking boots with much more endurance. You should learn how to make your own shoes from animal skins before these begin to wear out."
Eureka! Backcountry 1 - Tent (sleeps 1)
Eureka! Backcountry 1 - Tent (sleeps 1)
"Portable shelter for one. It doesn't weigh too much, but will provide ample protection for most conditions. Waterproof it yourself to make sure it'll stand up to rain; when using this in more hostile conditions, try to locate it under some kind of overhead structure at all costs to reduce wear on it."
Integral Designs Crysallis eVENT Full Zip Bivy with Bugscreen, Dark Green
Integral Designs Crysallis eVENT Full Zip Bivy with Bugscreen, Dark Green
"The most minimalist piece of shelter short of improvising your own from your environment. This has the amenities of a tent (bug screen, waterproof, reasonably comfortable) without the tent poles."
Maxpedition . Sitka . Khaki
Maxpedition . Sitka . Khaki
"This looks exactly like the kind of thing you'd expect to see a survivalist carrying, and it might as well be; it's extremely rugged, well-made, and has plenty of accessorizing potential, if you decide to do so later on."
Maxpedition FR-1 Pouch
Maxpedition FR-1 Pouch
"To expand your carrying capacity or to be used as a standalone "scout" module for hunting. It can also be used for its original purpose (medical kit) or any number of things; it's a large enough pack/pouch that it might even be usable for several purposes at once."
Hilton Bay Polarized Fitsover Sunglasses P77
Hilton Bay Polarized Fitsover Sunglasses P77
"The goal with these sunglasses is not to look cool; general sun exposure to the eyes can easily wear down your vision, and snow blindness can be deadly if you are alone once the damage presents symptoms."
Streamlight 51012 3 C-Cell Xenon/6-LED Twin-Task Flashlight, Titanium
Streamlight 51012 3 C-Cell Xenon/6-LED Twin-Task Flashlight, Titanium
"This flashlight uses much heavier "C" batteries, but lasts for more than 100 hours with all six LEDs online and has a 3-LED and Xenon mode, along with having the same waterproof/regulated qualities of the subcompact Microstream."
Streamlight 33202 ProPolymer 3 C-Cell 10-LED Flashlight, Yellow
Streamlight 33202 ProPolymer 3 C-Cell 10-LED Flashlight, Yellow
"The longest-lasting flashlight you'll ever bother to find. This one gets over 336 hours on a single set of C batteries; while C batteries are bulky, this flashlight is well worth the weight. Its beam is incredibly bright as well, several times more than their other products such as the Microstream."
CELOX First Aid Temporary Traumatic Wound Treatment 2g, 10-Pack
CELOX First Aid Temporary Traumatic Wound Treatment 2g, 10-Pack
"While you still have the luxury of carrying temporary and perishable medical supplies, you should carry this. CELOX can clot even major arterial wounds and keep you alive long enough to get help."
Datrex Emergency Survival Water Pouch (Pack of 64), 125ml
Datrex Emergency Survival Water Pouch (Pack of 64), 125ml
"If you want to buy supplies in bulk, this box of 64 1-liter water pouches is what you need."
Adventure Medical Comprehensive Medical Kit
Adventure Medical Comprehensive Medical Kit
"If you aren't willing to put together your own kit, this one is about the closest you can get to one that covers as many bases as possible out of the box. For a long-term kit, you'll need to splice together your own kit."
Sure-Pak MRE Meals Ready To Eat Case Pack Of 12 For Survival And Emergency, New
Sure-Pak MRE Meals Ready To Eat Case Pack Of 12 For Survival And Emergency, New
"Expensive, but worth it for a long-term scenario. If you're okay with surviving at the cost of temporary menu fatigue, buy an equivalent amount of Essentials from the previous list; they come out to around the same cost, but the Essentials come with a supply of water and a survival blanket as well."
Black Diamond Neutrino Carabiner
Black Diamond Neutrino Carabiner
"The useful carabiner. This one is rated at around 1500 pound-force at its weakest point; it can be used for anything from climbing to carrying other items."
Moleskine Classic Notebook, Large, Plain, Black, Hard Cover (5 x 8.25) (Classic Notebooks)
Moleskine Classic Notebook, Large, Plain, Black, Hard Cover (5 x 8.25) (Classic Notebooks)
"If you survive but find yourself alone, keeping a running log of events could be the one thing that keeps you sane. The paper is acid-free, so the notes should last for decades to come (contemplating past experiences can also help you cope with a survival situation)."
Bushnell H2O 10x42 Porro Prism Waterproof/Fogproof Binocular
Bushnell H2O 10x42 Porro Prism Waterproof/Fogproof Binocular
"If you can afford the space, these binoculars should suit the job well; it'd be preferred to not use a rifle-scope, because the optics or mounting components could get damaged, and a scope doesn't exactly make it possible to use the iron sights in a close-up and personal situation while hunting."
Brunton ComPro Pocket Transit International Compass with 0-360 Degree Scale
Brunton ComPro Pocket Transit International Compass with 0-360 Degree Scale
"One of the better compasses out there. It's rated as waterproof, shockproof, has declination compensation, and will work very well with any maps you might have."
Celtic Sea Salt, Vitamin Mineral Blend (Fine Ground Celtic) 1/2 lb.
Celtic Sea Salt, Vitamin Mineral Blend (Fine Ground Celtic) 1/2 lb.
"Long-term, salt is a vital commodity; you need it to maintain electrolyte balance, to sweat, and to brush your teeth."
Benjamin 392 Bolt Action Variable Pump Air Rifle (.22)
Benjamin 392 Bolt Action Variable Pump Air Rifle (.22)
"The epitome of a self-contained hunting air rifle; .22 caliber with enough power for rabbits, does not require anything but air, has its own pump built into the mechanism, bolt-action (ensures loading), and only requires PellGunOil for most maintenance. Use with Crosman Premier Domed 14.3 gr. If you live at high elevation, buy a Chrono and figure out how many more pumps you need."
Crosman Williams® Peep Sight.
Crosman Williams® Peep Sight.
"Add-on peep sight for the Benjamin 392."
10 Lbs Sodium Hydroxide Caustic Soda Red Devil Lye Make Soap Drain Cleaner Soap Making
10 Lbs Sodium Hydroxide Caustic Soda Red Devil Lye Make Soap Drain Cleaner Soap Making
"You can use it to make your own soap, provided that you know how to react fats with it; isolate it safely within a container. Alternatively, you can research a method to extract potassium hydroxide from tree/bracken ashes."
Blackhawk Tactical Rappelling Harness
Blackhawk Tactical Rappelling Harness
"Use a commercial, rated harness in place of this one; in case of situations where you might need to clear a cliff or otherwise have no other way down in a precarious situation."
