SAS Survival Pack

The SAS Survival Handbook is a survival guide by British author and professional soldier, John Wiseman, and was first published in 1986. The book details how to survive in dangerous surroundings. One of the main items of preparedness discussed in the book is to always carry a “SAS Survival Pouch”, which contains useful gear/tools for a survival situation. Wiseman’s survival skills are highly regarded almost universally amongst other survivalists. Due to this, I wanted to make sure to implement my own version of the SAS Survival Pouch in my Urban BOB.

Rather than using a military style rectangular pouch, as described by Wiseman in the SAS Survival Handbook, I decided to use a very common carry case that I would normally never wear in an urban setting: the dreaded “fanny pack”! This fanny pack will be connected to the main Urban BOB using a carabiner. It will be immediately disconnected and worn in an emergency situation. The purpose of this pouch is to ensure that you always have survival items on your person, even if you are out of contact with your primary bug out bag. Since the fanny pack is a fairly common storage bag, although fairly “nerdy”, hopefully it will not draw any unwanted attention to myself while wearing it.
