The 10 C's of Survival

Instead of doing a giant list of items that I carry and why, I thought it might be fun to go through the 10 C's and show you what I carry for each of them.

The 10 C's of Survival is a checklist of the most essential tools for survival in the wilds, and is equally important to the traveller traversing the modern concrete jungle. The list was developed by Survival Expert Dave Canterbury of the Pathfinder School LLC, former star on Dual Survival.

What I like about the 10 C's is that they can be tailored to your own needs easily, as the list does not recommend specific items, just the role that they should fulfil. These items are all useful in real life day to day situations, in the words of Jack Spirko "if times get tough, or even if they don't". 

The 10 C's of Survival are as follows, the first 5 being the priority for survival, and the last 5 being immensely helpful as they are difficult to replicate in the wild;

(1) Cutting Tool - available HERE
(2) Combustion -  available HERE
(3) Cover - available HERE
(4) Container - available HERE
(5) Cordage - available HERE

(6) Candle - available HERE
(7) Cotton - available HERE
(8) Compass - available HERE
(9) Cargo Tape - available HERE
(10) Canvas Needle - available HERE

I will post an item each day showing my solution to each of the points on the list and why it is I carry them and would love to hear from people about what they carry etc
