    I’m not sure but ,if anyone else needs to find out about 2 week survival kit try Lonnonnar Survival Quickie (just google it ) ? Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my mate got excellent success with it.

    good 😀 Hopefully one will never need to use one , but one will be glad to have it "ready to go" in emergency situation. I totally agree about practicing /trying /testing the gear out. Just to add , something like a metal water bottle would go well with a kit similar to this.

    *Two* satellite emergency communicators? Like $600-700 for both, I think. Most people don’t even have one. I do have a whistle, though ☺️.

    Hey Chris. Can you do a video showing us how to properly pack a bag for both day and multi day trips? Maybe you have some tips / tricks on how you pack your bag before you head out for the day. Thanks!

    The PLB is one of the smartest things to carry! It’s the most powerful technology out there to summon help to pretty much any corner of the globe! But it’s obviously a great idea to have the rest of the gear you tote; rescuers might know where you are but extraction might not be immediate, especially in bad weather. You’re going to have to stay alive til they can reach you! Great kit!
