The Wilderness Survivor Survival Kit is the best equipped kit in the Best Glide Wilderness Series of Survival Kits. It includes an extensive selection of high quality survival equipment, much of which is NATO or US Government Approved. Many of these items are actual military issue. The Wilderness Survivor, formerly known as the SK1, is much more comprehensive than the Trekker and Companion Survival Kits. It is one step above the Wilderness Guardian Survival Kit, another very well stocked kit. The Wilderness Survivor Survival Kit is currently in use by numerous US Government agencies, large corporations and individuals alike.

The Wilderness Survivor Survival Kit is housed in the Best Glide Large Survival Kit Bag which includes one central compartment. This compartment measures 8" x 8" x 15", thus giving you an ample 960 cubic inches of storage space. It is constructed of 1000 Denier Cordura with a 3/4 oz water repellent backing, YKK self healing zippers and D Rings for a shoulder strap if desired. It utilizes reinforced seams, Mil Spec webbing and Mil Spec hardware. This is one tough, yet light bag, offered in red or black. Other colors are available for special order. Best of all, this bag is Made in the USA!

One of the Best Comprehensive Ready Made Survival Kits Review by WhiskeyAlpha Six Niner

Although I am not a fan of ready made, comprehensive Survival Kits this is one of the two best of that type on the market today. The only real fault I can find besides the price is that it doesn't offer a MultiCam bag as an option (even the manufacturer only offers Black as a standard option though they claim to offers others as a custom option on "Special Orders"). Here is a list of exactly what this kit is comprised of:

BG Wilderness Survivor Survival Kit

Best Glide Large Survival Kit Bag One Central Compartment Measures 8" x 8" x 15" (960 cu in), 1000 Denier Cordura w 3/4 oz Water Repellent Backing, YKK Self Healing Zippers & D Rings.

Although I still believe one can put together their own Survival Kit cheaper with their choice of components, this kit is still one of the best Ready Made ones available for those won't be bothered or don't have the expertise to do it themselves.
