putting a shitty first aid kit in this isn't going to do anything other than take up space. when you are designing a first aid kit, think about what you are going to use that kit for. In what circumstance are you going to need a first aid kit that is sealed in a water resistant container? Probably not in a vehicle because you can take your damn self to the hospital if you need to. But what if you cant? Now If you think the every day risk of serious injury is too great to not have a decent first aid kit, then I'll be the first to tell you that you will be just fine throwing an IFAK in a nylon pouch under your driver's seat and securing it with some rubber bands so it stays put until you need it. If you think you will need first aid supplies for more than one person just build an aid bag with an old back pack and throw that in the back and secure it in place with hook and loop fasteners or paracord. If you DON'T need that serious of a first aid kit, just put some band aids, neosporin, and a pair of tweezers and a bit of duck tape in a ziplock bag and throw it in your glove box. TLDR: using this box for first aid is dumb.


For your neat little survival box:

fishing line (can be used for more than just fishing)

more fishing supplies

survivial blanket(s)

emergency rations. (Below are two brands that I have had success with.)

- Ultimate Survival Emergency food rations

- Datrex emergency survival rations

water purification/Emergency water supplies. (datrex makes some that have a good shelf life)

a GOOD fixed blade knife that can take a beating

Signal mirror/signal flares

Things to start a fire effectively and efficiently (dont just put matches in it. put matches AND a lighter AND some wax coated cotton balls AND OOOO steel wool and a 9v battery. Always have a backup for fire.)

100 feet of paracord

A good, high quality, sturdy multi-tool

maybe a cigar if you are into that sort of thing.


Edit: whoa holy hell I got silver for this?! thank you. Being in the infantry has taught me a lot of valuable skills. If anyone wants to pick my tiny 11Bravo brain for knowledge, just let me know.

Great start! Feel free to x-post to /r/bugout, as they'll have some more suggestions. Here are my thoughts:

  • I agree with gittenlucky: if the first-aid kit is mostly off-the-shelf, you may want to consider adding some pain killers, anti-diarrhea, and any prescription meds you might require. Some people also recommend iosat tabs, if you're concerned about nukes. If you're comfortable collecting and using them, also consider minor surgical gear, antibiotics, etc. Maybe some sun/bug protection? If you're walking, moleskin and foot powder?

  • Although I noticed you have at least one pull-top food can, the P-38 can opener is lighter and surprisingly effective. If you're interested in lightening the load, they're available cheaply. Lighter than carrying cans, you might alternatively consider a stack of Datrex bars.

  • While the candles might be romantic on a calm day, I'd swap them out for a flashlight, head light, or a pack of chemical glow lights. Each stick lasts about 8 hours and is pretty bright.

  • Have you considered any defensive items, even if it's as benign as pepper spray?

Answer by number:

  1. Pants. I like Prana, others wear the Goruck brand, some wear the ones you get at Walmart (very similiar to Goruck Simple Pants).
  2. Gu Gels or Clif Shots, Starburst, some kind of crackers or Datrex emergency bars, candy bar, 5 hour energy. That's it.
  3. If you're less than 2 weeks out and don't have shoes sorted your feet are likely not going to enjoy this. Trail runners are popular with Hoka and Altra leading that pack. The Goruck MACV-1s are also very popular. I wear New Balance currently and have tested them on the road and trail both doing long rucks. Whatever you get I would wear it 100% of the time between now and your event and do some practice rucks.
  4. Just a very light rain jacket. You will not be cold for long.
  5. Bring pedialyte electrolyte powder and mix them when you get a longer break. You shouldn't need more than 2 for this event.
