Silva Ranger backup compass (Suunto MC/2G global compass carried on beltkit )
Garmin Inreach Mini 2 ( Satellite comms for text, SOS, and GPS )
Sealed container of wet fire tablets, wrapped in rubber Ranger bands.
Inner tube rubber (amazing fire starter in heavy rain and damp conditions)
Exotac nano candle – burns for 4 hours ideal for drying out wet/damp tinder
Exotac firesleeve – protects Bic lighter, waterproofing and will float if dropped in river or sea.

DMT Fine/Coarse sharpening stone
Sharpie pen for aiding in keeping correct angle whilst sharpening blades.

Petzl E-Lite back up headtorch with strobe function.
Battery operated lightstick which when combined with a length of cordage becomes a “buzzsaw” – “poor man’s strobe” which can be seen for many miles in good conditions.
Leatherman Signal- all the outdoor essential tools but none of the extra faff makes for a lighter handier multi tool.
Esee arrowhead, nice small back up cutting implement, back up striker for fire steels and improvised tip for spears.
Repair / Misc:
5 metres of Duct Tape wrapped around a piece of plastic – if you can’t fix it with duct tape it’s really broken!
