Tactical Survival Kit Review

Tactical Survival Kit Review

Developing a kit for Tactical Survival is nearly like putting a huge puzzle piece together.  When there is specific entities that tell you what to carry, such as military or law-enforcement, you sometimes you have to take the good with the bad. You are at the mercy of what your superiors and what they think about gear.  They may, or may not, ask your opinion on the matter.

If you are an average “Regular Guy” such as myself, trying to put a kit together is hampered primarily by your budget constraints.  I do not have the money to invest in all the latest gear.  I am VERY fortunate however that as a consultant for various gear companies, as well as a gear reviewer for our Youtube channel, I get my hands on a lot of great gear.

In this video I go through the kit that I used on a recent Tactical Survival class that I taught along with Rodney Vanzant of Iron Sight Defense.  The beauty of this class is that it rained, and rained hard, nearly the entire four days we were there.   I had some gear that proved to be invaluable and some other gear that I threw in the trash when I got home.  I would not want my worst enemy using it.  I most especially do not want my supporters, and followers to be using it.

Here is the video.  If you look directly below it, I put together a list of the various companies that sell the gear I am speaking of.  If it is available on Amazon, I shared a link from there.  If you buy from those links a small portion comes back to us and allows us to continue doing what we are doing.  Many thanks for you support.
