So my 2 cents on the weight issue (of the kit AND the user) are that while our abilities are both different AND variable (your ability to function may, and probably will, change during your trip) , our needs are all constant and the same.

You will always need shelter, you will always need water food and pictures of centerfolds of your perfered gender. While our bodies are different, they function pretty much the same.

Your job in assembling your kit is to give yourself tools to satisfy those basic needs according to your abilities, and obviously to plan accordingly.

Also, you must remember that such a survival kit is NOT meant to replace a bug out bag. Everyone have a different plan for bugging out - be it on foot or in a vehicle of some sort, and every bugout bag should be fitting their plan and not just be a generic one bag to rule them all.

The purpose of such a kit, and the reason I built it, is to provide the basic and the most needed gear ( in my opinion ) in one small compact package. How and what you use it for is up to you.

Here are my uses:
- I use it for EDC. It's always with me and I feel comfortable that I can both use it for general daily uses, and that if the zombie apocalypse begins while I'm at work, I'm confident that I have enough there to survive a couple of days while the rest of the stock dies of zombie bites.

- I use it for day hikes or short trips out to nature, when I'm too lazy to pack up a proper outdoors bag. I throw it in my backpack, add on some food and water and I know that I'm good to go. Is it enough to practice bushcraft? To some extent. Is it enough to spend a night in the woods? No, you'll need more gear added to that. But it is a good platform to begin with.
