Loadout: Water Bottle Survival Kit

I stumbled across a great post on IG by Nathan (@thelastboyscout79) of this amazing water bottle survival kit loadout and I was so grateful when he was happy for me to share it with you all.

Nathan: I made a few modifications/upgrades to my original “ultimate water bottle survival kit”. It has all 10 of Dave Canterbury’s “10 C’s of survival” stored inside a water bottle. Keep in mind it’s for survival/emergencies and you probably won’t be comfortable if you have to deploy it, but you have a much greater chance of survival in an emergency situation. It also takes up minimal room, and weighs under two pounds.

It contains:

  1. CUTTING TOOL – Esee Gibson Pinch in an Armatus Carry Architect sheath and a Victorinox Swiss Army ALOX Farmer
  2. COMBUSTION DEVICE – Exotac fireSLEEVE with a BIC lighter, Exotac nanoSTRIKER, UCO storm proof matches, three UST wetfire tinders, five SOL tinder quicks
  3. COVER – SOL 1-2 person emergency blanket
  4. CONTAINER – Klean Kanteen 40oz stainless steel water bottle, six Katadyn Micropur MP-1 tablets, eight Aquatabs, and a Sawyer Mini filter with straw
  5. CORDAGE – 100’ of paracord 90
  6. COTTON BANDANA – Colter Co Survival bandana
  7. CARGO TAPE – Exotac ripSPOOL
  8. COMPASS – Suunto Clipper NH and pace beads
  9. CLOTH SAIL NEEDLE – Exotac ripSPOOL
  10. CANDLING DEVICE – Olight i3E EOS with a chap stick lid diffuser and two extra batteries.
