    I know it is not really considered gear but found this book in a charity shop recently and it cost less than a dollar, think it was a great find. I firmly believe knowledge is the best peice of gear to carry with you as once learned it weights nothing. This book The SAS Survival Handbook -- John Wiseman |

    It covers many topics from what you should always carry like the essentials to strategy. Also explaning climate & terrain, hunting, food, what to avoid, shelter making, traveling, health, survival at sea, rescue and so forth.

    Bascially most of what you need to survive and how to make it from natural elements.

    It's quite a good basic reference book, but a bit bulky to haul around the boondocks. They make nice gifts to youngsters for seed planting.
