Our survival and preparedness start with what we wear and carry. In this video, Jason Salyer gives a thorough breakdown of not only his daily carry but also his average clothing. You’ll notice that he prioritizes the ability to address a variety of situations, along with compartmentalization and organization of gear.
While many articles and videos focus on carrying a bag or pack that’s stocked full of gear, your first-level gear should literally be on you at all times. That’s rarely realistic for gear that’s carried in a backpack. This video will give you a great primer on what to carry, where to carry it, and how to be prepared without going overboard.
You can find many of the items that Jason references at wazoosurvivalgear.com. They specialize in making accessories that allow you to carry a survival kit on your person all of the time. Just check out their Instagram for some tips on what you can pack into the belt featured in the video.

You are actually better prepared than when I was in the US Army…
I do really want to see a video on the belt…
I carry a Leatherman Signal myself, but lookimg to add to my stash…
Also… you may think about marketing your cargo pants as well as that shirt you mentioned…

I’d love to see the video on the belt! I have 6 sons and always give them some kind of prepping tool for the holidays.

Definitely want to see what’s in the belt. Also I notice you did not mention a (separate) knife which many people seem to favor. Does the blade on the leatherman obviate the need for a separate blade in your opinion (Like a “make the most efficient/effective use of available space” thing) ?
