Emergency Equipment, Disaster, Camping, Wilderness Survival Gear Kits
The wild can be as dangerous as it is beautiful. A fun and relaxing weekend in the woods could easily turn into a survival situation. You could get lost, attacked by animals, or worse, get caught in a natural disaster, which could even happen in the comfort and perceived safety of your own home. For instance, an earthquake could take electricity and water instantly from any modern neighborhood. Anything can happen. The good news in all of these situations is that there are survival gear kits and devices that can help you out.

Clean Drinking Water: a Must for Survival
In a survival gear list bug out bag essentials should be at the top. And in a bug out situation, nothing is quite as essential as clean and potable water. You are probably now living and working in an area where drinking water can be bought cheap rather easily, so you are not in any danger of thirst or dehydration. Once your area gets hit by an earthquake, flood, or hurricane, you and your family are going to need a way to find your own drinking water, which you can do with the Portable Mini Filter Pump. Through a three-step process, which includes a medical-grade UF filter that can trap protozoa, this pump can provide you with clean and potable water sourced from streams, standing water, or lakes in the wild.
The ideal bug out bag setup for any situation that can threaten your regular water supply contains not only this pump but also a backup Replacement Cotton Pre Filter, a Replacement Carbon Fiber Filter, and a Replacement UF Filter, allowing you to filter even more drinking water from the environment.
Alternatively, you can use a Portable Water Bottle with Built-in Filter. Although this device uses just a single filtration process, it can remove 99.9% of bacteria through its single UF membrane filter. It can filter 400ml of water per minute, and you will need to go through 80 liters of water before changing its filter. It is a simpler, cheaper alternative to the pump, with the tradeoff of having only one filtering process. It is less safe, but in an emergency, it is better than nothing.
If you want to be sure the water is safe, you can hook up the Portable Mini Water Filter Pump to the inlet of the Portable Water Bottle with Built-In Filter, producing twice-filtered water that is much safer for consumption. This would also lengthen the life of the water bottle's built-in filter.
When you are hiking or doing survival chores, it is easier to carry all that water in a Portable Water Gravity Pouch. In case you do not have time to use either the pump or the bottle to filter water, you can use the Portable Water Filter Straw for a quick drink in a stream or lake.
Another way to get clean water is through the Portable Solar Kettle. Having no access to electricity, or even batteries, is not going to be a problem. Using just the sun, it can boil water in 30 minutes. It even has a built-in stand that reclines the kettle in a better position for capturing sunlight. Even if you are not in any survival or camping situation, you can use this device as an energy-saving way to make your morning coffee. If you heat water filtered by the pump, you can even sterilize tools for emergency medical situations.
But enough about water. In a situation where you are forced to survive, there are other things you need to worry about.
Food during an Emergency
You will never miss your own kitchen as much as when you are trapped in a survival situation. Without gas, or your pantry at home, you will not have access to the meals you are used to. You are going to have to make do with what is available. Thankfully, the Solar Oven Bag works without gas. Just like the kettle, all it needs is a lot of sunlight.
In the right weather, you can cook for up to 285 degrees Fahrenheit or 140.5 degrees Celsius. It is just going to take some time, but with a bit of timing and planning, you can cook hearty meals for feeding survivors. Not only is this a viable way to cook using the sun, it is also nearly smoke-free, as no wood or other fuel needs to be burned in order to cook, making it a great way to cook in a military camp without giving away its location.
If you prefer to make a fire for both cooking and warmth, there is the Flint Striker. It is enough for 8,000 strikes and even has a compartment for storing dry tinder for fires. A great companion to the Flint Striker is the 21-inch stainless steel multi-strand Wire Saw, a compact device for cutting logs and branches for both firewood and shelter.
For hunting game for meat, survival gear weapons like the Survival Knife and the Survival Knife with Nylon Cord Wrapped Handle can come in handy. The latter can be attached to a stick to create a spear.
Shelter: as Essential as Food and Water
Surviving emergencies and natural disasters is more than just about clean water and warm food. Shelter is important, too. When setting up an emergency shelter, nothing is as useful as Paracord, a lightweight and durable cord that can be used as a tourniquet, as an emergency harness for lifting humans or transporting food, and even as a car tow strap for getting vehicles unstuck. When braided into compact packages like the Paracord Rifle Sling, Paracord Camo Belt with Metal Buckle, Paracord Grenade Survival Kit, and Paracord Bracelet, you can carry up to 90 feet of Paracord conveniently on your person.
Whether you are just camping or preparing for the ultimate disaster, putting together survival kits and viable bug out bags needs some foresight and planning on your part. In some situations, a Powerpack might be more useful to you than a big knife. As much as you can, pack lightly. Stick to survival gear essentials that you can definitely use.
