What is an outdoor survival kit?

2023-12-27

Outdoor survival kits can help people survive and rescue themselves in emergencies in the wild. They are usually one of the necessary equipment for outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, exploring and extreme sports. The unpredictability of these activities will increase the risk of unsafety. If you encounter an emergency, such as an accidental injury, getting lost, or severe weather, an outdoor survival kit can provide the energy your body needs while slowing down the situation and reducing unnecessary injuries and losses.


Depending on the needs, outdoor survival kits are usually equipped with:

Fire tools: e.g. flint, matches, fire rope, etc., used for outdoor fire heating and cooking.

Navigation tools: such as compass, map, etc., to help confirm your location and direction.

Lighting tools: e.g. torches, headlamps, glow sticks, etc., used for night lighting and signalling

Water and food: water filters, waterproof bags, compressed food, etc. to prevent hunger and thirst.

First aid kit: such as band-aids, bandages, disinfectant wipes, medical tape, medicines, etc., to help deal with trauma and accidental injuries

Multi-purpose tools: such as knives, tool shovels, etc., to deal with daily life and emergencies

Rope tools: e.g. ropes, carabiners, etc. for camping and extension activities in the wilderness

Protective equipment: such as masks, gloves, etc., to protect yourself from the environment

The above contents of the outdoor survival kit can be altered to suit specific activities and environments. The survival kit should contain the necessary tools and supplies to ensure safety and survival in an emergency.
