No one wants to be in a situation where they have to survive.
All known survivors in extreme conditions got into this situation against their will. Someone drag himself or herself in this situation, of course, without rational thoughts. And most often “kick out of reality” happens quickly and unexpectedly, without time for collection and preparation. What they were wearing, with what was in their hands and pockets. All advertised survival kits, especially – “72 hour ultimate survival backpack” usually stays in the most obvious place – at home, or in the car. In addition, the same backpack are completely unsuitable for everyday wear, they are too large, prominent and heavy – the same water supply for 72 hours weight 10 kg. Only water, excluding food, tools, tents, and so on. Imagine that you have to walk about 40 km through the forest in the winter with 25 kg on your shoulders. And it’s far from the fact that it will be only 40km.
However (Good new is ) there are two approaches, solving this problem:
1) Miniature Survival Kit in a Tin Box; and
2) Specialized Set of EDC (every day care).
Both are equally worthy of consideration and respect. Those who find themselves in non-standard circumstances with a lighter, a knife and at least a couple of chocolates have a 50% -60% chances to survive. The more different items you have with you, the more chances you have to get out of danger with minimal losses. However, these approaches also have two drawbacks. The main one is “how to carry this with you in the gym and at the banquet?” Agree, the “alto-ids tin” will look strange in a set with an evening dress, and the “Leatherman charge” cannot be comfortably arranged with you in the gym. If your answer is “Well, you can put it in your purse, or put it in a locker for 2 hours” – then your answer is not correct. The multi-tool will not reach you with its legs if an earthquake starts, and alto-ids tin will not jump and stick to your hand if you lose your purse. The next stage immediately suggests itself – miniaturization. What causes the next problem “what will fit there?”
This is the second major problem known as the “rule of three”
- 3 hours in the cold
- 3 days without water
- 3 weeks without food
More or less, there are cases when a person survived without food for 3 months, and without water for a week – but these are exceptions. Also, “armchair survivors” often write here “3 minutes without air” – but if you find yourself in an airless space, then you need a spacesuit or rebreather, which is clearly not included in any survival kit. However, according to statistics, breaking “rule of 3” means that badly reversible changes will begin in your body, and you will not be able to improve your health while drinking tea with raspberry. So, it turns out that you need at least something with which you can light a fire, something to disinfect water, and something to get food.

So, it turns out that you need at least something with which you can light a fire, something to disinfect water, and something to get food. Moreover, everything should be small, primitive, reusable and lightweight. Well and don’t attract attention
In other words, integrated.
