A latest pattern within the YouTube self-reliance group is to place collectively a 5 lb. survival kit (2.27 Kg). Generally, folks issue dimension or funds into their kits; however not often do they contemplate weight. In my opinion, this is likely one of the tougher variables for which to issue.

Therefore, I took up the problem of placing collectively a 5 lb. survival kit, and at first, I failed. When I weighed my pack the primary time it was about 6 lbs. four oz. After spending half-an-hour whittling it down, I acquired to a decent 5 lbs. 1 oz. and determined to cease. If I must drop it to 5 lbs.—which I am unable to think about why I would wish to—I can simply throw out the helpful, however pointless, flashlight.

So, my closing loadout is as follows:

• 10′ of nylon rope;
• 50′ of bankline;
• a carabiner;
• a Condor sniper veil;
• a bandana;
• a gallon ziplock bag;
• an Ontario Knife Company RAK knife;
• a Bahco Laplander noticed;
• a 5×7 tarp;
• an SOL bivvy;
• a Sawyer water filter w/ pouch;
• a GSI chrome steel cup (w/ ranger band to carry down handles);
• gloves;
• jute twine;
• a stitching kit (i.e., thread, a button, and a needle);
• a magnet;
• security pins;
• a Suunto MCA compass w/ ranger beads;
• a BIC lighter;
• a QuickFire dice;
• a ferrocerium rod w/ a built-in magnesium rod;
• a fresnel lens;
• Deet spray;
• a TOPS whistle;
• a Silva headlamp;
• a Victorinox Spartan;
• a Light My Fire titanium spork;
• a task of 1″ Gorilla Tape

If you could have any recommendations, I’d love to listen to them, although I most likely cannot match anything within the kit! Plus, if you wish to take up this problem, I extremely encourage you to take action. And when you find yourself performed, ship me a hyperlink to your video . . . I’d love to observe it!
