Survival Gear for Hiking | What a Green Beret Recommends | Tactical Rifleman



The plan was to do this video talking about my favorite 3 items that I always keep in my bag. I thought about doing this video like our series of “survival gear” video, that Randy “Rawhide” Wurst did, and just just point to the bag and say “I’m not gonna get into it.”… Yep, that would have pissed everyone off, as there are a lot of viewers that want to know EVERYTHING that I carry, down to what I keep in my pockets and hidden in my belt (different video). So, I broke down and decided to show everything (within reason) that I keep in my “Woods” bag.

This is literally what I carry. When the film crew showed up, they saw it laying there in my office, and asked why we had not done a video on it yet. I had just done a hike through “Garden of Gods” in Illinoi, and it was still packed. All I had to add back to it was my “Woobie,” as I had it out on the couch.
Here’s a few notes for your bag.
If you make it too heavy, you wont carry it. Better to stay really light, as you are more likely to take it with you.

Food/Water/Shelter/Fire/Med/Como; but not in that order

Have a knife: I carry a Leatherman Surge in the woods

Fire: 2 is 1, and 1 is none. Plus, Fire can signal, cook food, purify water, warm shelter.

Como: If you are going off grid; but a Sat Phone.

Phone: Put the “Smart” in Smartphone. Have good apps, like Gaia GPS and Life360

My Mountain Serape is hands down my favorite piece of gear in the woods. Hill People Gear makes it, http://bit.ly/2QWoc5z

Water: If you aren’t in the habit of bringing water with you everywhere, don’t go outside. Ever.

Medical: Think Trauma, think cuts & bruises, think multi-use items.

Mobility: That’s YOU!!! Stay in shape. Wear good comfortable foot gear. Layer your clothes. Bring extra socks, to keep your feet dry.

I hope you enjoy the video, as a small glimpse into my life.

Yes, I enjoy hiking.

No, I don’t always walk around with a sniper rifle in my hands.

I’m actually looking forward to the comments about what gear our viewers would prefer.

Thanks for watching. Strength & Honor, TR
