Re: Survival gear
I think all the kit’s been pretty covered in one way or another here... So I’ll address a couple of my favorite pieces of kit; with the understanding that much of the other kit mentioned is a no brainier, if you plan to survive more than, 5 minutes, 5hrs, 5dys or 5 weeks depending where your heads at.
One piece of kit is’.., the Sure Fire Saint HS1-A-Blk variable output headlamp... this is a must if your going to need “light” in almost any situation… spot on bullet proof kit.
The second my Rothco G.I. issue military tritium lensatic compass, which I liberated in 1973; with a good map it will be working long after my Garmin Rino 520HCx is dead.
Third would be a blade, or two; the first my Bud Nealy five inch Pesh-Kabz for light and tight wear, this is a knife fighters blade; the second one Woodsman Pal 1941 as the LC-14-B, original a combat engineers tool during WWII after that it’s pretty much a Spec’Op gangs must have tool for deployment world wide.
Fourth and last MTM xtreme Special Op’s wrest watch… you’ve got to be able to mark time and distance reliable.
Everything else has pretty much been cover as I said; these are a must for me.
