Les Stroud Survival Gear !
Don’t ask yourself if it will function under the best conditions, but rather, will it do so under the worst conditions ? If not, do you want to stake your life on it ?
Your personal survival kit is not really a “kit” at all but the most important survival gear you should carry with you at all times – on your belt, in your pockets, or around your neck.
You’ll never leave a pocket behind! You can carry items such as a whistle on a piece of rope or parachute cord around your neck. Get the sturdiest, loudest, brightest, and most obnoxious one you can find. My favorites are manufactured by Fox 40.
