My top rated items for survival and B.O.B.
The following is only taking into account for one male individual. Obviously it would be ideal to find similar items for your loved ones that accommodate their size needs.

Footwear. Good footwear is something I would not skimp on. My choice would be a heavy duty 10" - 14" high gortex and/or leather mining boot, such as the "Men's Rocky 13" H.A.M. GTX ST 400G" or the "Carhartt Footwear: Men's CMW1629 Black Mining Boot" among others...

Water purification. The other most essential item would be a reliable water filtration unit. Get the best rated one!! "Katadyn pocket water microfilter" Nothing more need said on this....its a no brainer...Ok...if you can afford to, go for the explorer...its rated for 4 people, but the price is 4X more.

Sleeping bag. "ACU 5 Part RFI Modular Sleep System IMSS SLEEPING BAG GENUINE ARMY ISSUE"

The bag itself. I would elect to go with a heavy duty multi pocket internal frame bag. something like the "Kelty Red Cloud Backpack - 5600-6650cu in Cypress 90, M/L" I also think a good choice of bag would be non synthetic material....so something that will hold up in extreme use. Also self repairing zippers are recommended.

Other items. fixed blade knife, full tang metal hatchet,(ie. Estwing) magnesium (any form), Hand gun/several boxes of ammo, high powered rifle/ammo, compass, fish yo yo's and high nutrition power bar rations. cookware, etc......

Lets hear your ideas? The above would be some of my top picks and first choices.

I went to the store to buy a camouflage jacket, but I couldn't find one.

Ideally, I would get as remote as I could from civilization. 200 - 300 miles on foot if possible.

"Katadyn pocket water microfilter"
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27095842


Only filters the water.

Would you need to purify it with this as well:

I was in a backpacking store the other day and bought their last Katadyne Xstream filter/bottle on sale for $20. I've also got a LifeStraw and a MSR filter.

Interesting, haven't looked into them yet. will do. I mentioned the bag in my original post because it is a complete sleep system (with option of using waterproof shell) and can be customized for all year/climate cycles. Not sure of the weight though....

Obviously, you don't want wet bedding!

In all honesty though.....the two single most crucial items would be reliable footwear and reliable source of clean water wouldn't most agree? (all else need not to have to meet the excellence these two items do.)
