Also you can carry many things in your pack such as an extra cell phone battery to try to get signal, a mini saw to cut fire wood (you could try to us...
So as everyone knows you can get lost VERY easy so when your outdoors carry this simple and easy survival kit!!!
Step 1: Backpack
In my time on instructables I have almost never seen a survival kit with a backpack. Backpacks are very easy to carry heavy hiking backs probably arent best for this situation. So I use a black school backpack that I have had for awhile black would be easiest because you can attach reflecters on to the pack to be easily seeen by rescuers.
Step 2: Fire Starters
My preferations when it comes to fire starters are matches but that is just me you can carry a lighter. Also you may want to carry a notebook to use the paper as kindling.
Step 3: Comfort If You Need It
I carry a blanket that will cover me and one other person. To carry the blanket I sewed on a carrying bag type thing onto the backpack by my back to hold it and anything I may have found. That is really it for comfort though and if you really need a pillow use your backpack.
Step 4: Weapons and Tools
I carry quite a few things I could use as a weapon. First of I carry my pocket knife with can come in handy for alot of things, second I carry around my small co2 bb gun with two extra co2 cartridges and about a 1000 metal bbs. Also I carry a small swiss army knife which has all the things you could need. Also carry a nice little led flashlight with extra batteries!!
Step 5: Food
When your out in the middle of no where food is scarce so I bring Ramen noodles in my bag also i use foil and ziplocs to cary anything i might have killed or edible plants i have picked. I also carry three water bottles to in the pouches for bottles and one actually in the bag.
