Building Your Survival Kit

What should you put in your day pack?

In past posts I've talked about the ten essentials and have casually referenced a book by  John D. McCann.

This book is a fine read for the novice and expert.

McCann's book gives an impressive review of equipment and gear that you might consider carrying in the backcountry.

Better yet, in Part 3 he brakes down the components of a day pack in terms of function and size.

Weather you are a day hiker, hunter, or deep woods trekker you will find an itemized list that will match your needs.
