Prepare your wilderness survival kits with care. In an emergency situation, a few crucial items in your survival kits can make all the difference in your chance for survival.

Everyone embarking on a wilderness trip should carry a survival kit. While it is entirely possible to assemble your own kit, there are a number of commercially produced kits. Be sure that your survival kit meets your specific needs and the wilderness environment that you are venturing into.

Select items you can use for more than one purpose. If you have two items that will serve the same function, pick the one you can use for another function. Do not duplicate items, as this increases the size and weight of your kit. Know how to use every single item in your kit. A survival kit doesn't replace knowledge, but can be an important tool in a difficult situation.

Split your kit in two parts. One part should consist of a few key survival items you always carry on your body, your personal pocket kit. The other part, your pouch style survival kit, use for more bulky items that you need to have with you, and want to keep close-by for emergencies.

Remember you need a wilderness first aid kit that match your wilderness trip plans.

As a wilderness adventurer you should always carry a survival knife. It can make all the difference in the fight for survival. Your knife is your most important survival tool.
