Belt Survival Kit

The belt survival kit is very handy to carry while working out of a base camp for short periods.

    I carry a regular wine bottle cork in my little emergency fishing kit, I put a pre made leader on it with a length of line, weight etc. The cork can be used as a float, used to give buoyancy to bait if trying for pike or other toothy fish and it can be used for tinder if need be too.

    A large heavy duty trash bag would be a great addition.

    Hooray, someone else who carries a candle besides me. I carry a couple, one is a citronella to chase off the midges (small mosquitos that like to travel in clouds and attack unsuspecting tourists).

    Great video man. I was wondering if you might be able to post a materials list including the pouch maker? I would really like to add this to my equipment set.
    Lastly, that fishing kit. I have seen many video's talk about them but haven't found a video on construction and use. Any chance you could make a video covering that?
    Awesome stuff Brutha.

    Nice kit and good philosophy. Light enough to easily take with you with enough items to facilitate survival. Mine is in a lightweight fishing vest so I just wear that when I am exploring or even around base camp. The only suggestions for additions would be a glowstick for signaling/light and a large contractor grade garbage bag to stuff leaves or straw into as a makeshift sleeping bag. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

    It's funny how people have a real small shelter set up , shelter should consist of thick layer between you and the ground then a cover sheet or something. Or just get a hammock.

    Maybe put a wrist loop on the fishing "pole" so a fish doesn't take it from you?

    Nice timepiece. I have a 2013 116610 LN stainless, Date. I am a huge fan of Kirtly as well.Question; I have been an outdoorsman in central British Columbia since the late '70's and never needed a firearm. I may start carrying a 12 guage defender as I like to do solo trips. Why are the hang-guns so popular down there? That appears to be a Glock…that wont stop a charging bear at 9mm…just curious.

    your pouch looks big enough to hold a rat trap. works easier than trying to make snares.

    Hi Steven, just watched this video for the first time, I have now subscribed. I am the Paul Curly you mentioned, I was shocked (but pleasantly surprised) to hear my name mentioned in a video. My name is indeed Paul, but Curly is a nickname I was known by during my time in the Army (due to my surname). I guess you saw a comment or something on Facebook ?
    I am currently working on a survival kit video of my own, I have gone through so many over the years, I am always trying to change things, the way I carry it, where I carry it, what I carry in it ect ect. I always look for what I call the "Goldilocks kit" not too small, not too big. You just about nailed it here. My last kit was very similar, but held inside a set of mess tins (giving me a boiling vessel, pot to eat from, an audible signaling device when clanged together, and extra signal mirror when polished) I always aim for items that form multiple uses, for example, the mess tins as mentioned, and my compass which has a sighting mirror and magnifying glass, giving me an extra signaling device and means of combustion (assuming the sun is out !!!).
    I have a channel called Hike and Survive, and Facebook page of the same name. I have only a few videos thus far, mainly about hiking, I am now (when work allows) starting to shoot videos on the survival side of things. My survival kit will be the first 1.
    Thank You for the shout out, and well done on the video and channel as a whole.

    Love your kit. Nice, light, compact, and comprehensive. If folks are getting on you for not having a container to boil in. Since you said you haven't had much luck with snares, you could add a section of tin foil (thin, don't weigh much) and make a cup with the foil and wire to boil in. I think CommonSenseOutdoors has a video about how to make one as I somehow remember learning from him. Could be wrong. But I've done it now and it works okay. Tin foil is handy for lots of things ;)

    If the snares aren't working to well, I've seen many people get mouse traps and use them. Just a suggestion. Good video though

    Very nice set-up. I feel the same as you about the container for my survival kit. Mine is in a surplus aviation FAK bag about the same size as yours, and it easily carries all I really need. I do however have a couple Altoid tins in it to help keep it organized with the smaller bits. Your fishing kit is a great idea. Bamboo is ultra strong, and being hollow makes it self-contained. Well done. Thanks for the upload. You got a new sub. Peace.

    Nice video , I would add a YoYo reel to your fishing kit . I to carry a sling shot , snares and a single 110 Conibear trap along with my fishing kit of three YoYo reels and line , hooks , sinkers , swivels  to make a pole . This is an all in one hunting and fishing kit for me . The one thing I never here anyone speak of is something to occupy their mind in a survival kit like a set of dice , deck of cards just in case you have on choice but to stay put untill help comes . A small note pad for drawing or games and notes to let your  rescuers know what happened if your unconscious when they find you  . I carry all of the above .

    really like that kit even, covered all the key areas and not too big. I think I will have to rethink mine again now. I always end up taking a daypack with me where ever I go and right at the bottom I have the classic survival tin which is crammed with stuff. It would be good to trust in a couple of belt bags and ditch the daypack one day when out and about..a.t.b. vee
