An urban survival kit is a loadout or EDC concept of equipping situationally or non-specific sets of equipment to best tackle urban scenarios.
The concrete jungle. Organized, developed and structured, but a jungle nonetheless. Like the wilderness, survival is a necessity, difference being it’s beyond emergencies to the core of your lifestyle. That’s why urban survival gear is applicable to every aspect of everyday life.
Survival in the wilderness and the kits for it greatly differ than that of the urban; streets, cities and technically suburbs – essentially anywhere with moderate human dwelling / activity.
The strategies and methodologies of surviving in each while different, the end purpose remains the same…
…to thrive and survive.
This also means that the gear and clothes necessary to effectively survive is also quite different from urban survival kit to wilderness survival kit.
Urban Survival Kit Items Packing List :
The term “kit” may refer to a loadout of items to be carried in a bag but for the urbanscape, the concept regards “EDC” just as much, as in everyday carry.
Urban is tradecraft, wilderness is bushcraft.
