Basic Survival Gear

There are a few basic pieces of gear that we like to have along on any outing that we take.

Hat

A hat is a very basic piece of gear that has tons of uses, most importantly keeping your face and head out of the sun

Shirt

A good long sleeve shirt proves useful to us in just about any season. Protection from sun and bugs is key here.

Pants

These pants are tough and rugged and can be used in all seasons. The legs are removable for summer climate.

Boots

Quality footwear can make the difference of how well your feet are protected from moisture, blisters and rough terrain.

Backpack

A good external frame backpack is a must have when hauling around all of our gear and food.

Hydration

While you can save weight by not carrying water into your bushcraft camp we prefer to always have some with us in our hydration bladders.

Sleeping Mat

Keeping your body insulated from the ground is key in regulating your body's temperature.

Socks

Did you know that your socks can make all of the difference in the world in terms of protecting your feet? Protecting your feet is a must!
