00:00:03
[Music] hey everybody it's Tim from everyday tactical vids and today we're taking a
00:00:15
look at this which is my compact survival bag the actual bag you're looking at is the Voodoo tactical and
00:00:21
large deployment bag and I have reviewed this already you can find that on our YouTube channel but the concept behind
00:00:26
this bag is that I have a larger survival backpack that I keep in my car and I wanted something that was smaller
00:00:32
lighter weight easier to carry I can carry with the handle here it also has a shoulder strap you can attach as well
00:00:40
and I will unload this entire bag show you all the items that are in it but right now let me just talk about some of
00:00:46
the things on the outside as you can see I have some teklynx and some grimlocks from ITW and these are great if you want
00:00:53
to set up a Ridgeline for a shelter or if you want to carry something on your bag set up a clothesline whatever it
00:00:58
might be these can be very useful down here on the end I've got two different items first one is my Columbia River
00:01:06
knife and tool eaton tool and that has a variety of functions as well and then this is a very cool item from ultimate
00:01:12
survival technology so I'm gonna take it off the bag here this is a tiny little light basically you turn it and see if
00:01:19
we can get it to come on there and then if you twist this portion off totally you can actually turn the battery upside
00:01:27
down and it becomes a strobe so that's great for getting attention and making yourself visible in the woods
00:01:31
particularly at night so those are the only items I have on the outside I'm gonna empty out the bag and then we'll
00:01:36
talk about what I have in inside the bag as you can see I've got quite a large variety of items here and I'll talk
00:01:45
through each one but just take note that if you're creative and how you store items inside of other items you can
00:01:50
actually get quite a bit in that expanded deployment bag starting down at the end here this item is huge when it
00:01:56
comes to being in the Northeast there's so many ticks out there so something that has that you can keep the bugs away
00:02:02
that'll keep the bugs away and you can see this is 40% DEET there are more powerful options out there but this is
00:02:08
the one that's readily accessible you can buy it at a Walmart you can buy it at an outdoor store variety of different
00:02:13
places moving on you can see I have some gloves these are actually made by mechanics
00:02:21
very nice gloves very durable you can see they've got some reinforcement here on the top and then on the bottom as
00:02:27
well on your finger tip on the thumb these serve multiple purposes one is just general warmth now these aren't
00:02:32
going to keep you as warm as a pair of you know heavy wool gloves or something like that or wool mittens but they will
00:02:37
give you some warmth and also depending on what you're doing if you're really working on something hard or
00:02:42
aggressively that you got to be pulling on or tearing on this is a way to protect your hands in that process so
00:02:46
another great item to have up here you see a couple of the food options I have these were like a buck apiece you can
00:02:53
pick them up at Walmart they even actually sell them at places like Cabela's or other outdoor stores good to
00:02:59
have a protein source and then ROM and this stuff will last forever and if you can get some water and something to boil
00:03:05
it in right there you can see you've got some food so this isn't gonna last you for six weeks obviously but this will
00:03:11
take you you know through a handful of days to actually have something as soon as you hit the woods that will provide
00:03:17
sustenance for you up here you can see I've got a blaze orange bandana and this can be used for a variety of things if
00:03:25
you need to signal somebody if you want to leave it at your camp hanging from a tree so you don't lose where your camp
00:03:29
is obviously you can use it to carry things lots of uses for a bandana so another key item there this is lip balm
00:03:39
and this is used for multiple purposes again you're going to see that theme with all this stuff for most of this
00:03:44
stuff multiple uses for a lot of these items here one of the things that bugs me is if you know you get really
00:03:50
terribly chapped lips or sunburned lips it's nice to have something to actually take care of that and because this is
00:03:56
petroleum based you can actually use this as a fire starter as well so multi are multiple uses for that got a compass
00:04:05
here and obviously that's for travel I would like to get one that has you know the
00:04:10
mirror up top and you use it for signaling and other things as well but at least a basic compass in my kit
00:04:16
this is a headlamp from Princeton tech and it's the fuel as you can tell bright dimmer dimmer and then a strobe setting
00:04:26
and then off if you I think I talked about this in another video I basically got this for about 15 bucks
00:04:33
and I got it at Cabela's Princeton tech makes amazing stuff high quality things great to have a headlamp instead of a
00:04:40
hand flashlight you know I flash they have to hold in your hand because it does give the freedom to operate you
00:04:45
know hands-free if you're walking if you have to walk at night or if you're trying to do something night both your
00:04:50
hands are there for free because you've got a headlamp on moving on to some other items this is a multi tool made by
00:05:00
Winchester so if I can open this up with one hand it's not the highest-end multi-tool but it is a multi-tool that
00:05:06
has a variety of different things including pliers and you know other blades and such on it does have a little
00:05:12
saw blade in there as well so good to have a multi tool you can use this obviously for a variety of different
00:05:18
things and it does have a knife on there I do have another knife but you're gonna also see one of the themes for me is
00:05:23
repetition for some key items my pocket New Testament with Psalms and proverbs as you guys know I'm a pastor full time
00:05:30
this is for you know reading getting your mind off your troubles encouragement both spiritually
00:05:37
psychologically emotionally whatever it might be and I don't want to bring a full-sized Bible so here's the option
00:05:41
I'm going with got some duct tape and notice I say duct it's actually real tape for working on ducts if you were
00:05:50
you know doing something to HVAC got a couple rubber bands that you can use as well and I always say this but make sure
00:05:56
you get high quality duct tape if you're buying duct tape don't buy cheap stuff and then find out it doesn't work moving
00:06:03
down here a little bit I've got a tiny fishing kit you'll notice that I don't have fishing line
00:06:09
my plan is I've got you know some hooks I've got a law I've got a bobber and I'll throw a couple of things in there
00:06:15
probably you can see I've got a rooster tail which I find very successful what to use for fishing but what I would do
00:06:21
is I would come over to my paracord here and if you look inside you can see there's smaller strands and I'd actually
00:06:28
use some of that for fishing fishing line but this little kit and I've got in a plastic box that I can store things in
00:06:35
as well I've got water purification tablets now you can purify water by boiling it in other means but this is a
00:06:42
way to pretty much guarantee quickly that you'll have potable water and this one came with another jar but
00:06:49
the same size to take away the taste but I just thought I don't really need that I don't mind the the taste of purified
00:06:57
water using this alone and not using the other tablets and I don't want the extra weight so there you go got a guarantee
00:07:03
of some clean water I've got a little blade here this is from cold steel and you can see it's a very very small blade
00:07:13
this is the mini tough light and the reason I put this one in is that if I had to do some some detail work you know
00:07:19
if I was like cutting into a fish or cutting into an animal and then want to use this big knife over here it's a
00:07:25
ka-bar BK – this gives me an option to have something a little bit smaller up here you can see now this is something I
00:07:34
just thought of the other day but down inside you can see salt and pepper packets from Wendy's it's great to get
00:07:38
food and when you're hungry pretty much anything tastes good at the woods but you can add a little bit of flavor to it
00:07:42
there's an option so I'll just put these inside of this can which I could use to boil water drink water or whatever it
00:07:49
might be there are other options obviously out there but I just want to use this to show you know just a simple
00:07:54
can now you've got your container option from your 5cz or tendencies of survival up top I've got my Corona folding saw I
00:08:02
chose the saw instead of the Gerber backpacks – just for now at least I'm going to give that a shot and if I want
00:08:09
an axe instead of a soft or a while maybe I'll swap it out but there's a good cutting tool you know for making
00:08:15
shelter or firewood or whatever that might be let me drop down here to a couple other
00:08:20
items and here this is a bag that came from ultimate survival technologies and there are a variety of items in here
00:08:27
this is the Sparkie which is a fire starter you've got wet fire which is basically a little cube that will start
00:08:35
on fire even if it's floating on top of water if it's wet which is great got a whistle a signaling whistle and
00:08:40
then on the back you have some water purification tablets and again I left it in this a to keep it dry and then you
00:08:48
can also use this little container for other things as well down here I've got some hand warmers
00:08:54
maybe not vital in the middle of summer but you know it can get cold various times a year so good to have that
00:08:59
here I've got a large whiskey a bread size storage bag and it's quite big at the when you open it up it's probably
00:09:07
about you know 15 or 16 inches square and this is great because if you do find a good water source or you know
00:09:14
something that you need to carry in a bag now you've got this some people you know say well you know I'll just drink a
00:09:20
ton of water but if you wanted to carry it back to camp or if you want to just have it in a bag here's a good option
00:09:25
very compact and again rubber bands you can use for multiple things firestarter just basically a Ferro rod again I want
00:09:32
to have multiple ways to start fire 50 gallon drum liner this can serve or shelter could be a poncho variety of
00:09:40
uses for this more rubber bands paracord got about a hundred feet here and as I showed you before those inner strands
00:09:48
can be used for a variety of things as well Mike a bar-b-que – big beefy knife very strong you can use that for batana
00:09:58
a lot of different options I did want to have this other blade over here for a more detail work but I want to have
00:10:04
something big and strong as well got some zip ties I'll probably add a couple more in – – this only have three
00:10:10
here I think I had probably ten or so but those can be those are great for shelter building if you have to secure
00:10:15
something to a tree or to a branch that's a good option up here something I created I started to get frustrated when
00:10:22
I was out you know trying to cook me over a fire and spend it so much time rigging something up so you get a piece
00:10:28
of meat you can put it on the skewer and then you can you know take some paracord tie it to this end and then you're good
00:10:35
to go you can set it up over your fire so this is super lightweight I got four of these and they're probably twice as
00:10:40
long I just cut the handle down for I think a dollar ninety seven so lightweight and another good option just
00:10:46
to make life a little bit easier when you're out there in the woods wrapping up here I've got a astronaut blanket and
00:10:53
that's for warmth you can use that as a signaling device as well I've got some tubing here this is about 10 feet of
00:11:00
tubing and this is helpful if you do get to a water source that's hard to get your face down to or your cup down to
00:11:05
now you can get into it if you use a solar still you've collected rainwater this is an easy way to actually consume
00:11:11
it I do have just a container of water nothing special about this kind but now
00:11:18
I know I've got some food coming in I've got some water coming in so this is a container to fill with more water if I
00:11:25
can get it a clean source of water but also just nice to know that I do have water coming into the survival situation
00:11:31
and as I wrap up over here I've got a fleece cap I've got a neck warmer I found that if you can keep your neck
00:11:38
warm particularly the back of your neck that can really help a lot in a survival situation so that's why I put this in
00:11:45
and then I've got a North Face long-sleeve shirt this will wick the sweat away from you as well as just
00:11:51
adding another layer of warmth now as I close out a couple final thoughts first is that I'd love to hear from you guys
00:12:01
in the comments and other sections what would you add what would you change you know we've all got our different
00:12:05
preferences on what we think the best things for survival are so comment down below say hey you know I'd add this or I
00:12:11
take away this whatever it might be let's get the discussion going second thing is that all this stuff is great
00:12:16
but if you don't get out and use it and get familiar with it it's not worth anything so just to you know kind of put
00:12:22
my money where my mouth is I'm gonna be out in the next handful of weeks with this stuff probably just doing overnight
00:12:27
but see what's the most helpful I'll probably leave the food at home so I could you know get my own some of my own
00:12:33
sustenance from the wild but I'll be interested to hear what you guys had to say and also I'll give you some feedback
00:12:38
once I get out and use this as always thanks for checking out the videos please like and subscribe and more
