Outdoor Survival Gear

I love the outdoors as most of us do. We can enjoy the results of the four seasons and do a multitude of activities outside. However, whether we are being outside for fun or because we have to it is beneficial to have the proper Outdoor Survival Gear to protect you with.

Gear can be considered just about anything you would need to survive outdoors. I am not talking about hanging out around the pool; I’m referring to spending a much longer period of time outside. Whether you are camping, hiking or you have to be outside due to an emergency of some kind you need gear to get you safely through these times.

Living is the “wilderness” for those who don’t typically spend much time outdoors is going to be a challenge to say the least. Planning is crucial to ensuring that your time outside is safe and that you are protected at all times. In the event of a disaster on a much larger scale, having Outdoor Survival Gear ready to go is a must for all of us.

The items needed in case of a disaster are to be as limited as possible, due to weight and storage limitations. Every piece of gear must be functional and serve a greater purpose. Your goal is to ensure that your survival kit be able to maintain daily life until the event/emergency is over.

If you are not currently prepared for an emergency and you had to leave your home, what would you take? How much time would you waste thinking of what to grab? If you had a 72 Hour Kit or Bug Out Bag complete with Outdoor Survival Gear, you wouldn’t waste any precious time to escape; everything you would need would already be in the bag. What gear should be considered?

You will need gear that is quality and long lasting. Each piece should be easy to use and usable by every person that it will be supporting while away from home. The gear should provide food, water, shelter and protection.

I can’t tell you exactly what you should have, but I can tell you that if you start with the basics then you are off to a good start. I also can’t stress enough that probably the most important thing to have is knowledge about how to survive outdoors. Search online, take a class or better yet go camping in your backyard for a weekend (without going inside for anything) and see how you fair.

You should be able to provide clean, safe drinking water and enough non-perishable food for everyone. A well-stocked first aid kit is a must. Tools that will provide light, heat and that are multi-functional are also must have gear. Communicative devices, transportation and self-preservation/tactical gear should not be left out either. After all that, even if you don’t have room to stuff anything, you need to include something for moral.

In addition to all that, you should also consider the area in which you live and the types of weather that typically occurs throughout the year. Outerwear should protect in any environment and, if possible, be one-size-fits-all type of items. This way, everyone can benefit from each item.

The amount of gear packed should keep you alive for at least 72 hours and should provide for every member of your family, including pets. However, if a life threatening disaster occurred the quantity of supplies is unknown. This is because typically these types of disasters are when you must leave your home without knowing if you will ever be able to go back which is a very scary thought. Be ready for anything with the proper Outdoor Survival Gear.
