Great kit xj35s! If I didn't use the Bat Belt, I'd use a single belt pouch system like that.

Speaking of Bat Belts:

It's a scalable rig. In winter I don't carry the snake bite kit (although I do carry the meds/boo boo items out of it), I only sometimes carry the binoculars, Don't often carry the knife, although the Leatherman Sidekick comes with me in a separate pocket knife pouch.

Usually it's just the belt, the canteen pouch, the PSK pouch and a pocket knife pouch.

Here's the Bat Belt fully loaded - L to R - PSK in a MOLLE II grenade pouch, Canteen kit in an Aussie issue canvas "Hexy" canteen cover, Snake Kit in an Aussie issue compass pouch, Ka-Bar in a 21st Century pattern kydex sheath (heavily modded), Leatherman in M9 accessory pouch on sheath, mini binos in ALICE compass pouch.

Contents of the canteen cover - Nalgene Oasis 1qt canteen, Aussie steel canteen cup, US aluminium canteen cup stove/stand, Aluminium canteen cup lid with wire handle, the pouch, "Aquatabs" (chlorine-based water purification tabs) in foil and vac sealed, 4 x hexamine tabs in small ziplock bag and wrapped in PVC tape, Match box with lifeboat matches - has a compass in lid, Brew kit - tea bag, 2 x green tea, 2 x coffee, 6 x sugar, iced tea sachet, 70lt transpiration bag, space bag.

Snake bite/boo boo kit - pencil wrapped in duct tape, various sized ziplock bags, elastic crepe bandage and compression bandage and a sheet of write in the rain paper in vacseal bag, Boo boo kit - skin closure strips, aquatabs, paracetamol, Imodium, paracetamol with codeine, bandaids, rehydration mix sachets, various bandaids, gauze pads

knife - KaBar Marine knife with part serrated edge, Leatherman Sidekick multitool   

Binoculars - ALICE compass pouch, cheapie 8 x 22 compact binoculars

Don't kill unless for the pot. Don't fell a green tree for a pole if there are dry poles nearby. Study the bush, learn to read its secrets; watch the mason fly building and go to the ant for another lesson... then you'll realise the bush is your friend.

My PSK is my Maxpedition Falcon II that goes with me everywhere I go!

Which reminds me, I need to add some para cord to it :doh:

HI all, 

Wow, you guys have some great set ups for carring your survival goodies    :)

I use a military butt pack with a shoulder strap to carry  my stuff in
The pic shows what I carry when on a walk in the woods in my area.

I also have the same set up in a maxpidition  geart slinger Malaga pack.  it is bigger than my
but pack and it is easyer to pack my a bit to eat( my sand wich and cheeze its do not get so smashed  lol)  if I am going to be out for more than just a walk with my Beagle Kelly Girl.
This is a pic of her just today on our walk bu the river near town where we live at.
