What's going on guys black Scout survival today we're gonna be talking about military surplus gear and how it relates to making a building a survival kit a few weeks ago I was talking to my good friend over at EXO tech Chris and he kind of you know prompted me to do this video I'm using the back home system which is you know the acronym I.
Created to you know kind of help you build a survival kit the items that I recommend you have on you at all times and this is what we're just using as military surplus gear an outfit that you know you can find military surplus gear very cheap and it's usually good quality military spends money on usually good quality stuff sometimes you get a long.
Garbage it happens usually the garbage fizzles out but you know they still sell it in army navy stores and stuff like that so anyhow if you don't know the acronym pay attention we'll go through it also put a link to all video discussing the back home system so the back home acronym the mission is to get back home right so the first thing is.
Blazing burn and a few things we have here blaze is the fire sparking or flame based ignition and the burn is the tender so what we have here is we have the down magnesium which is a good piece of gear a lot of people you know saying all this sitting work this is a great piece of survival gear it's not a great piece of bushcraft gear where you either.
Sparking a fair rod all time wearing it down this insert this magnesium in survival situation will save your life you know likes it's not bushcraft now now they're playing and sparking rods this rod is large enough to get you through a short-term survival scenario so good piece of gear that magnesium will make even you know negligible.
Negligible materials work this is my old max camp I actually got this down to Fort Benning when I was going to Airborne School and I just got regular matches in it so you know you can get these pretty cheap and I think there I got winter waterproof the NATO matches in there then we've got the spark light which is.
Aviation survival firestarters the sparking wheel in case you're injured as small comes with tender quick tabs which is amazing tenors you know I've shown over and over and over again but you can get these relativity I think seven or eight dollars and then trioxane which is a compressed ration heating fuel however it is an amazing fire starter and it.
Will take a spark from a fare rod this is my old stuff from the military that I got back in the day so it's good stuff and it lasts a long long time but that's a good you know tinder for you it's a fire starter the next is a which is all weather blanket this is actually the all-weather blanket but military version combat causa t type one blanket and it's.
Aluminized big heavy duty and it has the grommets and all that kind of stuff it's OD green so you can blend in but it has mylar and it can be used as a tarp you know blanket all that kind of stuff so all-weather blanket sea cordage obviously 550 cord you can't beat it next thing is knife now there's a lot of different military.
Night knives and you know a lot of them are really really good I couldn't find my K bar I have one so when I carried like a lot of my time in the Marine Corps in my early days later on I got better quality custom knives and stuff like that but here's also my bayonet ring Corps bayonet now what and I guess recommend using a bayonet but it.
Probably work because this thing's really tough made by Ontario nah dress they made K bars are great when it's relatively inexpensive you know you got the Air Force survival knife so there's a lot of knives and I just wanted to show this this is a bayonet slash fighting knife utility knife so it's meant to be used for our Marines.
All-purpose knife next thing is headlamp you know I don't know if there's a technically any issue headlamps but this is the tactical Thai tikka which is the Petzl and you can get those for a good price so you can use it for signalling and all that kind of stuff I don't know its current issue but then we have orienteering tools the my old.
Military lensatic compass that I snuck away with me but good trusted come Inga these will last way longer than you and your grandkids even so good way you know to navigate and relatively inexpensive for what you're getting and then just some pace count bzees are the new ones we're selling now is tactical tactical ones they're like a more chem afloat.
Version than what we that we've seen it's got skull bees which are like a dark brown light multicam brown and then this uh of a multicam cordage so we got those in store but Ranger bees pay speeds wherever you call them a lot of people carry them metal container we have your you know bottle to carry and then you've got your canteen cup which.
Is this is a great system I had lots of fond memories of this bad boy right here and you can boil your water and all that kind of stuff in this and you can carry it in the canteen typically I like that I like the used to like to have an all metal container but I'm starting to lean more towards now jeans and and cups like that then fully titanium just cause of.
Cold weather putting that steel to your mouth and stuff like that but next thing is II which is emergency signal and I have a quite a few emergency signaling devices I have my old this is my military one when I was in the Marines signal mirror here and it's got a sighting hole and all that kind of stuff so you can also check for wounds and.
Things like that check your makeup guys can't me paint make of us that's what I mean so then we got a whistle military whistle I really you know I had to get this back back in the day they made us care of these but that rattle can freeze up and all that kind of stuff signal flare pin basically how this works is that you.
Screw and your Flair and then a pop it and you can you know signal overhead and stuff like that these are a little bit more difficult to find but you know you can get those and then we have a military strobe this is the IR housing so you can turn that on see if it will pop the other benefit of this is like overhead when that airplane sometimes.
When I see that strobe but they think it's rifle fire so you can go like this drops that blue filter on looking see that or not but kind of show it'll show a blue flashing light versus the that where they might think it's gunfire so or you can go IR which most people wouldn't today's time was a night-vision goggles but anyhow guys that's just a.
Load out of the various you know surplus or military gear stuff you can get and make a back home system all the stuff worked really well you can also add a poncho puncher liner and have a really good kit with surplus gear so you know you don't always have to have the Gucci gear quality gear can be found and resupply so anyhow guys hope you enjoyed.
