What do I put in a basic survival kit?
For some reason, I just suddenly feel like I need to have an emergency kit just in case something happens. Like, I get stuck out on the woods or get lost. I need a list of what I can fit in a backpack that I can carry. Thanks!

Everyone has their own needs when it comes to a survival bag. For example, if you have a family, you would pack more food than someone living alone. If you have babies, then baby food and formula. However, there are necessities that every bag should have
several knives, if you live in a wooded area then you may consider a machete
A leatherman multi tool
Lighters, matches, and cotton to start fires
You can also carry steel wool and a 6 volt battery, which when rubbed together creates an impressive fire
Candles, flashlights (with xtra batteries) and/or chemical lights
Rope, string, and parachute cord
Something to cook on
A metal canteen for water
A metal coffee cup
Maybe a small pan or pot
Extra clothes, especially socks and underwear (perhaps a hat)
Good boots and gloves
Ammunition if you carry a firearm (recommended)
Along with food, I keep chocolate and candy for children
Bug spray and disinfecting wipes
Emergency radio, signaling mirror, and emergency space blanketSource(s): Prepper

There's at least a dozen sites with such lists, starting with the red cross. #1 for me a good "full tang" knife. Add basic first aid kit, canteen, water purification tablets or bottle of tincture of iodine, waterproof container of strike anywhere matches. I would add another container of lint from the clothes dryer.
