I carry my kit around my neck; its very thin, and I hardly notice it while in the woods. I try to cover the 10 basic area’s Medical, Shelter, Communications, Navigation, Fire, Hydration, Nutrition, Insulation, Protection, Tools.
I try to pick items to carry that will help in multiple areas. Yet still stay small/lite enough that I will “always” have it with me.
Neck Survival Kit
sparky, tinder tabs, milk box
box knife 5 blades
band aids (outside pocket), ibuprofen (8), cough drop
2 rubber bands
zip lock bag
I still need to add to it some:
string or dental floss
