Survivalist Equipment Checklist

Survivalists know that self sufficiency not only grants peace-of-mind, but it is the foundation of truly being free. It is the freedom to live independently, without relying on others to take care of you and your family... even during catastrophic emergencies.

The heart of the survivalist movement is assessing potential risks and preparing for reasonably possible outcomes. Preparing for the worst will reduce panic in a time of crisis and may ultimately be the difference between life and death. At the end of the day, being prepared is critical to surviving a major crisis.

So, what exactly do you need in a time of crisis? The following is a comprehensive list of materials that My Patriot Supply recommends having ready. Don’t see an item that you highly recommend? Help your fellow preppers by posting those recommendations in the comments below.

Emergency Energy
If a catastrophe strikes, electricity is often one of the first things to go. We recommended having an emergency solar power kit on hand as well as emergency lighthouse lantern and hand crank radio.

Survival Tools
Every self-sufficient home should have a quality axe, hand saw, and all-purpose tool. These tools should be lightweight enough to carry on your person, in case you will need to quickly move locations.

Water Treatment
A quality water purification system with replacement filters is an integral part of any survivalist arsenal. It is also wise to keep some water treatment tablets and a personal water filter straw for increased mobility.

Long Term Storage Food
It is critical that every prepared home have an emergency, long-term food supply to serve as an immediate food source in a post-catastrophe world. You can complement long-term storage foods with home canning goods.

Survival Garden Seeds
Even with your long-term food supply, you will eventually need to have a perpetuating food source in place. This is why you should keep a survival seed vault on hand. Non-gmo, heirloom seeds will provide you a renewable nutritious food source for your family. We recommend having a collection of both vegetable and medicinal seeds on hand.

Potassium Iodate Tablets
Serious survivalists know that nuclear fallout is one of modern society's greatest threats and you simply cannot trust the authorities to reach you in adequate time for treatment. In the event of a nuclear catastrophe, potassium iodate tablets will help protect you, your families, and even your pets’ thyroids from radioactivity.

Be Ready to Move
In some scenarios, you may be forced to quickly move location and your survival items will need to be portable. For this reason, a large hiking backpack (or one for each family member) is a wise investment.

Survivalist Reading
It is not enough to have the survival equipment; you must also have the expertise to use it effectively. Start educating yourself and your family immediately, with a variety of survivalist and homesteading books. We recommend books like Back to Basics, The Homestead Blessing series, and Country Skills: A Practical Guide to Self-Sufficiency. Start incorporating sufficiency strategies into your “normal” everyday life, including gardening, canning, and creating herbal remedies. This way, you will be an expert if and when an emergency arises, rather than having to learn new skills during a crisis.

  1. I was interested to read what the long-term food storage section consisted of. Described as nutritious, healthy and delicious sounds tempting but I am a bit sceptic I have to say when I then read that some of these packages have a 25 year shelf-life. That’s a very long time to keep food stuff and I would like to know what process they go through that enables them to be kept for so long. Are they just dried?
