You're going to die someday, but not today—not if you have the Seventy2 survival system. That's the promise Uncharted Supply Co. is making with its new go bag, which is designed to have enough supplies to keep a missing person alive for 72 hours in the wild. Their thinking is that since most lost persons are recovered within three days, having the right equipment to endure that time in the wilderness is essential.

Field & Stream recently had a chance to preview the new kit, the contents of which you can check out below.

Signal lights

Chemical Light Sticks
Chemical Light Sticks (also sold separately, $22 on Amazon)Cliff Gardiner & John Keller

Snap-and-glow sticks have been a staple of bug-out kits for years, for good reason. They’re waterproof, durable, long-lasting, and designed for signaling rescue aircraft from the ground.

Breath protection

RZ Industries M5 Emergency Filtration Mask

This user-adjustable mask is designed to filter out 99.9 percent of dust and particles, as well as protect you from 130 airborne toxins and other chemicals.

Eye protection

Safety Eyewear

These Z87+ rated high-impact glasses are tough enough for most industrial-shop environments and gun ranges, and would come in handy during a survival situation if airborne materials are a concern.

Flashlight

CCS Uncharted Emergency Flashlight

A good flashlight needs to be durable and plenty bright to get you out of a sticky situation, and this torch is certainly both. With CREE Q5 LED technology, it will also be gentle on battery life while still throwing out 300 lumens of light.

Radio

ETON Emergency Hand-Crank Radio

If you’re worried about batteries, fear not, because the ETON emergency radio has a backup hand-crank charging system. A multifunction radio, backup flashlight, and USB output are also included, making it a worthy inclusion in any go bag.

Charging cable

First aid

What go bag would be complete without a first-aid kit?

Sunscreen

Bare Republic Sunscreen

Why sunscreen? Sunburns don’t just suck; they can also be life-threatening.

Wet wipes

CCS Uncharted Multi-purpose Wet Wipes

Wet wipes are an underrated survival supply, if you ask me. They are great for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces for food prep and for first-aid in the backcountry.

Food

Emergency Food Ration Bars

Calories count—especially when you’re burning more than you’re taking in. These bars have 200 calories per serving, and though these rations may be basic, they may save your life.

Matches

CCS Uncharted Waterproof Storm Matches and Lighter

These stormproof matches serve as a great backup fire starter. They also come with a waterproof case, so if you flip your canoe or get rained on, you can still get a fire roaring in no time.

Multitool

A durable and compact multitool is indispensable in the wild. This model includes built-in pliers, wire snips, a small knife, a file, a Phillips-head and flathead screwdriver set, a bottle opener, and a carabiner.

Duct tape

By my estimates, duct tape makes constructing shelters and trapping rigs, and repairing tents or tools about 1,000 times easier.

Fire starter

CCS Uncharted Knife and Sparking Fire Starter

This tanto-style blade and Ferro-rod fire starter is another good way to start a blaze, in addition to the matches and lighter included in the bag. Both come packaged in a sturdy nylon sheath and are colored bright red, so you can find they easily if dropped.

Paracord

If I have learned anything as an outdoorsman, it is this: You can make just about anything out of p-cord.

A shovel, pick-axe, and compass in one

CCS Uncharted Shovel/Pick-Axe/Compass Combination Tool
CCS Uncharted Shovel/Pick-Axe/Compass Combination ToolCliff Gardiner & John Keller

Based on a military design, this tool converts from a pick-axe to a serrated-edge shovel, and has a compass built into the end of the handle. It also comes with a nylon carry case that you can holster to a belt for easy transport.

Hat

CCS Uncharted Warming Beanie

Admittedly, this beanie is kind of lame, but I’d rather have a beanie with a fuzzy ball on top than no beanie at all.

Gloves

CCS Uncharted Leather Warmth Gloves

Let me go ahead and ruin the surprise: Building shelter in freezing weather without gloves is zero fun.

Blanket

Rothco Reversible Emergency Blanket
Rothco Reversible Emergency Blanket [also available separately, $6 on Amazon)Cliff Gardiner & John Keller

This survival blanket folds down to the size of playing cards and can be used not only to keep in body heat but also to signal rescue aircraft overhead.

Tent

CCS Uncharted Warming Tent
CCS Uncharted Warming TentCliff Gardiner & John Keller

Constructed from Mylar, a material developed by NASA, this tent reflects up to 90 percent of your body heat back to keep you warm. It has enough space for two adults, if you happen to be lost with a bud.

Hand warmers

Heat Factory Disposable Hand Warmers
Heat Factory Disposable Hand Warmers (also sold separately, $10 and up on Amazon)Cliff Gardiner & John Keller

Any North Woods deer hunter can attest that these leg and hand warmers can make a cold day a lot less miserable.

Little water filter

Mini Water Filter
Sawyer Water Filtration Systems Mini Water Filter (also available separately, $20 on Amazon)Cliff Gardiner & John Keller

This mini filter removes harmful bacteria, protozoa, and cysts from freshwater sources, because the last thing you want to do while lost is get sick from drinking foul water.

Big water filter

64-ounce Water Filter
Sawyer Water Filtration Systems 64-ounce Water FilterCliff Gardiner & John Keller

This bladder holds up to 64 ounces of filtered water, which is more than you need to survive a day in the backcountry.

Water bottle

Nalgene Water Bottle
Nalgene Water Bottle (also available separately, $6 and up on Amazon)Cliff Gardiner & John Keller

A good water bottle is obligatory in any go bag, and super essential.

Pack

The Seventy2 backpack itself makes for a useful survival tool. Not only does it hold all the gear included above, but it also serves as a floatation device, and is made of waterproof 600D Tarpaulin.
