3 L Camelbak
1 L Platypus bag
Tinder (Char cloth and steel wool)

Cold weather gear (Gloves, beanie, etc.)
Headlamp
Flashlight
Spare socks
Compass
Knife sharpener

i carry a bit of burts bees hand salve. in winter, the gloves still dont protect the skin of dry air, so these are life savers for hands. I take a bit from the tin and store it in a small pill box which is backpackable.

Exclamation hiking gear

As a 69-year old, I go for a 1-2 hour hike each day. I am practicing for hiking the Seven Devils Mountains this summer. I am far enough out in the sticks that I just begin from my home and most places are a class 2 hike. I just returned from my hike thirty minutes ago and I have the following in my Cabela's day pack:

wool glove liners
stocking cap that covers the face
extra wool mix socks
polypropylene long johns, top & bottom
TP
Down vest
hand warmers
heavy duty space blanket/tarp
forehead sweat band
1-quart canteen of water
compact 9mm + an extra mag in a small fanny pack
.357 mag SA revolver + extra ammo
Alaska bear spray in holster
Sawyer water filter
sheath knife
F-t 60 radio
plastic spoon
salmon and tuna in foil packs
Clif bars
Emergen-C
Leatherman
pocket Swiss Army folding knife
extensive first-aid kit
compass
GPS
extra eyeglasses
whistle
compass
Streamlight flashlight
extra batteries
camera
misc fire starting stuff
sharpening stone
solar flashlight
Bic lighters
tube saw

I could easily need this equipment on day hikes in the high mountains and may be forced to spend a night out. I will probably add my wood cook stove kit this summer.

Default Hiking, Camping and Wilderness Survival Items

Ok, So it took me 3 days to read through the hole thread and I agree everyone has there own take on what is "NEEDED". So, I'll throw in a flew of things that I have found and keep in our BOB's aswell
1: 1.5' of flat lantern wick (any cotton strip will do), Now I know these make great fire wicks, But keep this one CLEAN! Now think of the nastiest dirtiest muck hole you can think of, and scoop it up, If you set this pond scum above you canteen cup with the wick running from one to the other it will siphon from one to the other and filter the water to you canteen cup while your making your fire to boil it.
2: Some have said that instant coffee would be nice, And yea, I keep some in the BOB as well. But I had a Brit friend introduce me to a Tea bob! I keep one in both of our BOB's along with REAL coffee.
3: The Altoids mint boxes are great for keeping a pocket kit in but I have some larger tins with windows in them that I keep contaminants in, Salt, pepper sugar, honey, even some taco bell salsa, and Bullion cubes.
4: Now I don't have a problem with Roman noddles, But my wife HATES them! so a 1 lt pop bottle filled with rice will make about 3 meals in a pinch along with a couple of cups of elbow noddles vacuum sealed keeps her happy.
This is by no means our complete BOB just somethings I didn't see in the thread that we have.
5: One other thing Rubber bands the 3" wide ones, so I can Blouse my pant legs
P.S. These are things I take everywhere when I leave the house.... But then the house is a Bus so I guess I take everything everywhere

Since you are wanting to live in the wilderness, take this and head to a park! Learn to use the gear and practice cooking over a fire you built yourself! There is NOTHING like practicing the skills you intend to need!

Also, there is a man living in the California desert full time. He comes back to civilization once in a while with youtubes on how he lives: he uses the money the ads make to buy things like salt, tools, and so forth. I do not remember his name but you might want to find them and watch them.

I see from the time that you are posting that you are having a sleepless night. Take care!

There's a web site that has a free gear inventory program that works for me, http://www.geargrams.com. Even gave a donation because it was so useful. I used it for this inventory (incomplete list, quantities and content subject to constant revision):



It also has columns for description, unit quantity and weight and you can group within different subcategories and so forth. I catagorize everything so it is easy to sort alphabetically by sublist. For example I can just look at what I want for an overnighter or long term, what goes in the doggie pack and what is in the navigation kit or med kit. (And yes I do have prescriptions for the meds.)

Hey guys I have a question:

For an extended outdoor journey / solo trekking, do you recommend a large outdoor survival knife or a small and light axe? I mean for multiple uses but mainly cutting things and especially wood for fire. In the axe-case I would have a 2nd foldable knife with a 9.5cm blade length, quite large too I think. What do you say?

If for weight purposes you're not wanting to take both this may a good choice. It a Kukuri. More of a machete than anything but does what both a knife and an axe can do. Cut wood or meat. Just a thought.

Have you Kukris in mind that you would recommend? I searched the internet for some (I knew them before) but I just seem to find low-prized kukris for below 50€ with some 440-steels, and the comments only tell how good it works in the garden. I'm ready to spend up to 150€ for this, but I need a really good tool then. Strong steal, light, functional, but extremely solid. I don't have to cut my nails with this, so its okay if I only get it moderately sharp.

Default Research

Hi there I'm a Product Designer, currently working on a project regarding first aid kits/emergency packs, revolving around Hiking.

I was wondering if anyone could answer a few of these questions:

I was researching into the most common injuries when Hiking, I found out:

Blisters
Skins injuries
Joint injuries
Insect bites
Sunburn
Dehydration

Could anyone confirm or disregard these? Or also add more in?

Also.

When it comes to a FAK or Emergency Pack. What are the key features, you would say?

For example, lightweight, durability. What sort of materials would be used? The size of the product? If there is anything else, that anyone can think of, please don't hesitate to add them in.

Lastly.

Do you go out in groups, when Hiking or do you go individually?
Who are you?
What do you do as a living?
Where are you from?
When do you go Hiking?
Why do you go Hiking?

Hope anyone can answer these,

Kindest regards,

Jordan McDaid.
