Equipment

Even though modern technology has improved bush craft techniques as well as your chances of
survival, do not become dependent on it. When one becomes dependent on their gear it creates
a false sense of security which will only set you up for disaster when that technology is no longer
accessible. Your goal is to become completely self sufficient using only your ingenuity as the tool
which you use to manipulate your surroundings, view using your gear only as a means to make
up for your lack of knowledge ad experience until you become more proficient at bush craft.

That being said, modern disasters such as war,revolutions, and martial law do require you to use
technology to successfully survive or even in some cases fightback. For starters you will need to
know what gear to buy, where do I put it, and how do I use it; and where do I go with all these
things. Three key points to remember while putting together your survival pack are one- PACK
ONLY WHAT YOU NEED, two- PACK LIGHT, and three- DO NOT SACRIFICE FOOD WEIGHT
FOR EXTRA AMMUNITION AND GUNS.

There are basically two types of survival packs which you can create to meet a wide array of
emergencies. A “72 hour bug-out bag ” for a quick bailout with enough supplies to basically
survive for 72hours comfortably, and a “D-Day pack” which is intended for the day when the Shit
hits the fan a.k.a. Doomsday.

-72-Hour Bug-Out Bag-

The focus of this bag is evacuation rather than long-term survival being only with supplies to last
72-hours, hence the name “bug-out bag”. This bag in addition to allowing one to survive a
disaster evacuation, may also be utilized when reacting to emergencies such as blackouts,
natural disasters, and martial law.Though this bag manly contains items one would require to
survive for seventy two hours, it can be packed with tools for long term use. This bag should be
packed with the idea of keeping it as light as possible.

Here are the basics to to constructing a Bug-out Bag modified to also deal with possible long term
surivial.

Backpack- M.O.L.L.E.or A.L.I.C.E. pack


A disaster plan including location of emergency centers, rallying points, possible evacuation
routes, as well as a map of the city/state/ or country you live in

-D-DAY PACK-

Unlike the bug out bag this is actually more than just a pack, it is a complete setup from head to
toe with a combine weight of well over 50 pounds of gear which you will disperse over your body
and in your A.L.I.C.E. pack .( note: this is not impossible, American soldiers carry just as much
and sometimes even more, this setup is very demanding on the body and mind. you must be in
top physical shape to carry this burden ) This setup is intended for when the is no turning back,
once you put this setup on this is pretty much all you have left to live off for who knows how long
in anywhere from tropic jungles to arctic weather. The most extreme of disasters such as the fall
of civilization and war are the situations this setup targets specifically.

RUCKSACK/BUTT PACK/ LOAD BEARING VEST/BELT/POUCHES

Rucksack- This aside from your own skills and your knife is the key component to this setup.
Everybody argues that this bag is better than the other, military gear over civilian, so forth and so
forth. Regardless of what pack you choose there are a few important factors that you must take
into consideration when selecting your pack-durability, comfort, frame type, cost, and load
capacity. We recommend a Large LC-2 A.L.I.C.E. Pack setup with the quick releases due to its
proven durability with the U.S.A. military for over 50years, somewhat comfortable setup ( you can
add additional padding), easily accessible pockets, having an external frame for better air
circulation on your back, low cost, load capacity up to abut 90pounds, and having a wide array
of add-ons. The only cons are that though the material of the sack is waterproof the pocket setup
is not ( you will need to line the insides with either heavy duty trash bags, a A.L.I.C.E. pack liner,
or individually bag everything), and how hard it may be to spot an authentic pack; for the market
is flooded with cheap imatations. But here is a helpful guides along with facts that will help you
make the right choice. One other thing to consider when purchasing any military setup like the
A.L.I.C.E. or MOLLE, once you buy that pack you can only buy a vest,buttpack, or pouches that
correspond with that setup.

Vest- The vest is where you will house most of your equipment that you need to access on the go
as well as attaching to your buttpack and utility belt. Recommendation: LC-2 load bearing vest

Buttpack- The buttpack is where you will store your tent along with other second priority
equipment. recommendation: SPEC.-OPS.™ S. O. B.– SOLDIER’S OPTIMIZED BUTTPACK

Belt- LC-2 pistol belt

Pouches- Any pouch with A.l.I.C.E. clips will do. Must haves are the Cordura® lining LC-2
Canteen pouch ( only @ www.eagleindustries.com), two Compass vest pouches, and Multi-
use/Ammo pouches corresponding to your weapon

Weapons of choice:

Primary- Any robust and accurate assault weapon in .223, 7.62 x 39, or any other widely used
caliber throughout the military and public attached with a CQB two-point OR three-point sling. i.e
—-Ak-47 ( Bulgarian SA-93 or SLR-95, Egyptian Maddi, Hungarian SA-85M ), VZ -58, AR-15

Secondary- Any robust and accurate pistol in 9mm, 45ACP, or any other widely used caliber
throughout the military and pubic to be placed in any tactical leg holster . i.e.—-Glock 17 or 21,
Colt 1911, Para-Ordnance ‘1911“ or “ hawg family” types, Springfield XDs
(optional) Rifle- This rifles primary purpose serves as a hunting rifle so any high caliber accurate
rifle with a scope and sling will suffice. i.e.— Springfield ’03, M40A1 types

NOTE: you must also get a holster for your pistol(either on the belt or leg) as well as mag
pouches or bag to hold your assault weapon’s mags.

AMMUNITION

NO MORE THAN 390rds(13 30rds mags )for the primary , and 7 mags for theSecondary. Here
are some suggestions for brand and type of round by caliber:

9mm: Federal Premium Hydro-Shoc 124gr or Winchester Black Talon


7.62 x 39: Golden Tiger or Silver Bear
223: steel core

MAGS/CLIPS

It is always best to try to use manufacturer mags/clips rather than cheap imitations. Here is some
suggestions for brand of mags.

AK-47 types: Bulgarian polymer waffle pattern mags

KNIVES

Stay away from any Rambo looking knife or any so called “survival” knives with hollow handles
and built in compasses, also a trench knife doesn’t help you unless you are in trench warfare. The
best type of knives are “full-tang” because of the strength and quality they offer. The four types of
knives you will need are divided into bushcraft, primary( a large multi-use knife),folding( a small
folding knife to work on threading and other delicate tasks), and hunting( skinning,gutting, cutting
game). Here are our recommendations (all with leather sheaths):

Bushcraft: Fallkniven F1

Primary: Fallkniven A2

Folding: Fallkniven U2

(optional) Hunting: Fallkniven H1

Backpacking boots- these is very well the second key component of your equipment, for not
having a good sturdy pair of boots will result in complete failure unless you plan to run around
barefoot and with only the clothes on your back. Though everyone argues that this brand is
better than the next, don’t waste your time getting caught in that mess. Instead look for a boot
that meets all the qualifications of greatness, which are the same no matter what brand it is.
Remember this though when you finally decide to buy one: until you are fimilar with hiking boots
DO NOT BUY YOUR FIRST PAIR WITHOUT TRYING THEM ON FIRST!! that’s means do go
out and buy what looks good on the internet, boot sizes run different from sneaker sizes not to
mention sometimes different from other boot brands. Also make sure you to buy your boots a little
bigger than your size because you will be wearing thick or multiple socks, the best way to get a
good fit is to try on the boots while wearing the socks you instead to be using while you are
hiking. Finally remember to break your new boots in for a good couple weeks before taking them
out on the trail for the first time, otherwise you will get the worst blisters you have ever had. Here
is a link to great website that describe the essentials of a god pair of backpacking boots:

http://www.hikingwithchuck.com/Gear/HikingBootPartsConstruction.htm
Socks

Rag Wool-Ragg Wool has been in use well before hiking boots were even invented and still is
the classic choice of fiber for backpackers’ socks. Ragg wool is still one of the best for the way it
wicks moisture away from the foot, keeping the foot much more comfortable. The main problem
with Ragg wool is that many people are unfortunately allergic to wool.

Merino Wool- Merino Wool is my favorite choice for socks. High quality merino wool has all of the
good characteristics of Ragg wool without the problems. I recommend the SmartWool brand for
their superior quality of the fiber as well as the construction of the sock.

Liners-Polypropylene is primarily used in liners (thin socks worn under the thicker main
socks).Their purpose is to wick moisture away from the skin and out to the main sock, where it is
dispersed. Liners can also reduce friction between the foot and the boot not to mention that if
your boots are a little big, liners can fill in some of the extra space so your foot doesn’t slide
around.

Clothing- One word will take care of most of your clothing needs- ECWCS (Extended Cold
Weather Clothing System) generation 3 . It consist of seven layers of clothing that can cope with
any kind of climate except Tropic and Desert, this setup is pricey but well worth it. To compliment
your ECWCS setup you should also pack a set of durable civilan clothes, so that you don’t always
have to be walking around in BDUs.

Undergarments- buy Merino SmartWool brand for everything from underwear to socks.

Gloves and Mittens- 100% Wool G.I. gloves and mittens are good for first level of protection, but
you will also need a pair of extreme cold mittens. I recommend this brand:
http://www.bergans.no/sider_eng/start_produkter.asp

Skimask/Scarfs/Neck gaiters- Again Merino SmartWool brand for the first layer skimask and neck
gaiter. 100% Wool G.I. scarf will do and a Wool/acrylic outer layer ski mask will suffice.

(Optional) A lighter Pair of combat boots- Those backpacking boots are great for trekking through
the rough terrain, but when in a urban landscape or when there is no need to lug around your
A.L.I.C.E. pack then it would be a better choice to run/walk in a sturdy pair of combat boots,
Bates is a good brand.

Compasses- There are two types of compasses which you will use to properly navigate on a
topographic map(base compass) as well as by sight (sighting compass).

Base compass: Sunnto M-3D compass

Sighting compass: Cammenga 3H Lensatic compass

Backup(optional): Bruton 15tDCL
