VIDEO: Survival Ready Everyday Carry

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.
