[VIDEO] Pocket Survival Kit (PSK) – Part 1 – Tools

Always wondered what you should include in your go-to survival kit? Wondered how you could ensure your survival without lugging around a gym-bag worth of stuff? Sure, you could keep a chest full of gear in your trunk or carry an army ruck, but at some point you’ll have to leave your car and carrying everything everywhere isn’t exactly practical. Your solution is a Pocket Survival Kit (PSK).

A Pocket Survival Kit should pack a minimum of survival gear into a package small enough to carry comfortably on your person so you will have it on hand when you need it most. It should provide as much protection as possible in as little space as possible.

Cache Valley Prepper’s here with a 12-part series to teach you how to build your own and what exactly to include in it so you’re sure you’re never caught lacking.

  • Thanks for showing and explaining. Your first item reminds me of another guy in CA who made some “odd shaped” heavy plastic scrapers. What I liked about those was they didn’t look like a weapon, but one could improvise. Having lived in ice country I could use them as window scrapers during winter (multi-purpose and somewhat camoflaged). Another thing I liked about them, similar to your item is that the hole in the center could be used to catch a finger, then twisted in the hand to bring someone (because of tthe pain of a trapped finger) down to their knees. I especially liked the idea of the first shown item as a “put it on a pole and get high fruit:, or even cut vines. Thanks.
