Jim,

Please tell us about your survival bag. To me the survival shelter is the big white elephant in the room no one talks about much. I have read more than once that if it is cold and wet a natural shelter like a debris hut is not going to keep you warm and dry.

Thanks!

heh... I live at least an hours drive from any sporting goods stores. There are more hiking/camping/sporting stores around, but I'd hardly call them "survival stores". Sure, they usually have an aisle or half an aisle dedicated to survival kit, but the rest of it is spread around as specific sporting goods. There aren't any climbing/hiking/camping type sporting stores in the malls there? I have to think there are at least smaller shops that deal with this sort of gear. For sure there are marine suppliers that have some gear.

Hmm... since my post I've located this for individual sale and they call it a Perry Whistle, but it doesn't look like the one in the kit here or in some of the BCB Kits. Looks like they use two different whistles?

It's the orange survival bag from Coghlan's
It provides instand protection against wind and rain.
The cold in Holland isn't that much, so additional thermal protection isn't a priority.
I also have some emergency space bags, but I prefer the orange bag because it's a lot ness noisy, it's tougher and makes a good ground signal and/or tarp
I'm also thinking about a orange tube tent. Is it any good??

I bought my original BCB kit about 9 years ago, so it could have changed overtime

I live in "the country", and I can't get most of this stuff locally. Exotic means potable aqua and really bad knock off magnesium firestarters. I can't even get Fox40s without having to order them. It's only been a year that I could get Nalgene bottles.

Mail order is a symptom of the illness known as "tin-fu".

The problem in the Netherlands is that it's a small country. There aren't a lot of places were you could get into a survival situation.
Therefore there aren't many people that have the same hobby as me: making survival kits. And that's the reason that there aren't many shops that have outdoor, let alone survival stuff.
