Overview

Soldiering in all terrains and climates, the U.S. Army has mastered the skills and tactics necessary for overcoming some of the toughest situations imaginable. While few of us civilians will ever have to endure such rigorous tests of our survival skills, that doesn’t mean we still can’t benefit from American military know-how.

The U.S. Army Survival Pack is loaded with essential gear perfect for campers, hunters, hikers, and others who love the great outdoors and its rugged challenges. It includes a one-quart canteen in a lined pouch that fastens easily on a belt; a combination compass-whistle that can help you find your location and alert others; waterproof matches useful in inclement conditions; a pocket-sized emergency blanket and hand warmer; and a handy storage pouch for all of your kits components.

Also included is the official U.S. Army Survival Manual, originally commissioned by the Department of the Army to train Special Forces. This indispensible field reference shows you how to tie knots, create shelter in unforgiving environments, perform critical first aid for medical emergencies outdoors, indentify common snakes and edible poisonous plants, predict the weather based on cloud patterns, and many other survival basics.

Whether you’re a serious outdoorsman or just a recreational daytripper, you’ll find the U.S. Army Survival Pack a reassuring and instructive resource for how to get by in the wild.

Your overview says, "identify ... edible poisonous plants." Would you give an example?

I'm in the army. I've had the survival training. If your car breaks down and is stuck in the snow you need clothes water protein bars cell phone and car charger and a quarter tank of gas cigarette lighter reflective triangles... in the woods you'd need a lighter clothes poncho or canvass or waterproof something for shelter and a gun would be nice... a whistle and compass are useless in most situations. This is what the army taught me, not a 20 dollar toy marketed as cool looking stuff with the army logo on it.

I got this for my eldest nephew and he loved it! He showed it to all of his friends. After I got to see what was in it, I got one and put it in the back of my car because I knew it would be helpful if my car stalled or something - and this Fall it's been really awesome for camping, and the blanket has come in handy...and the whole "survival" thing is fun outdoors-iness that has some basic necessities.
