Step 1: First things first

The whole idea of this kit is to be easily transported, and so it needs to be compact, waterproof/ airtight, and fairly strong. For this I recommend using an airtight food container, and/or one of those ice hot airtight boxes for food. About 2-3 boxes will do, and when put into a stong but not heavy backpack, you will have room for other items mentioned later. Another important item is water, take 1x2 litre bottle and 2x 500ml bottles, but don't fill them yet.

Step 2: List of items

- 500ml bottle x2
- 2L bottle x2
- airtight boxes x3
- laser pointer x1
- multitool (must contain knifes,screwdriver,pliers,saw,keyring,file for lighting matches)
- waterproof pac-a-mac
- mosquito repellant
- cup(s)
- matches
- cling film
- field guides (fungi,trees,animals,plants,fish and shellfish,constellations (for telling the day/month)
- waterproof watch
- plenty of batteries for your gadgets
- long lasting food (mint imperials,marshmallows,cereal bars(have lots))
- heavy duty gloves
- emergency blanket and tent
- waterproof dynamo torch that can charge a phone
- durable medium backpack
- small medical pack (plasters, antiseptic, tape,bandages, wipes)
- mobile phone
- hammer
- small pan

If you think there is a lot, remember most of it goes in the food boxes
-tools in one box
-survival in another
-the last as an extra if you can't fit it all in

Have you ever tried any of this or was this just a musing more appropriate for for a personal blog? The amount of gear you are describing would be hard to put into a large pack, let a lone a medium size one. I suggest starting small on these survival instructables. Pick one or two small survival tasks, and PLEASE test these things personally. Adding lasers to a survival kit, or anything battery operated but a small light for that matter, screams couch potato.

Scraping things off the internet doesn't count. You need to share with us something you did that's new and useful. Everyone has an Instructable in them, but it's not an internet-trawl.

And PLEASE SUBSCRIBE!!! through Google Translate comes out as "Please acknowledge that I exist."
From what language are you translating that?
It's undefined, but I'm sure you've come across it before....

The language of "inexperienced Instructable writer", I suspect.
