Ultimate Survival Kit - Plus

 USAF Aircrew Version - New & Improved

ultimate survival kit combo

The original BCB Ultimate Survival Kit, USAF Aircrew Version, was developed and modified in collaboration with the United States Air Force. It is based on the Ultimate Survival Kit (UK Version), but is better supplied and geared toward use by the US military (NATO approved NSN 8465-99-270-7742).

Now we have taken the USAF Aircrew Version of the Ultimate Survival Kit and improved it, still further, by upgrading some items and adding even more of the survival supplies that one might need in a survival situation.

This BCB Ultimate Survival Kit (Aircrew version) includes virtually every element required to help an individual survive in extreme conditions for up to 7 days. The Ultimate Survival Kit (USAF Aircrew Version) is standard equipment with numerous USAF squadrons throughout the US and overseas.

Since the BCB Ultimate Survival Kit (USAF Aircrew Version) is so extremely popular, we decided to rebuild it using all of the same quality BCB gear as the original. As for the most part, they are the identical, while in fact, some of the items are of better quality, and we have included more survival items, so you will ultimately get more bang for your buck! 

 The Compact Fishing Kit comes with more of the necessary items needed  to help you procure food in an emergency situation. We've added the NATO Stormproof Matches (waterproof, windproof), in place of regular matches, because we feel that no kit should be without them, as is the case with the 7 strand 550 Parachord. As an added benefit, we've also thrown in a Fresnel Lens Magnifier/ backup Fire Starter (you can't have too many fire starters), a P-38 can opener (if you've ever been in the military, you know what they are), and 2 Electrolyte Tabs  to help replenish your body of needed minerals that may have been lost in dehydration. Electrolyte tablets help minimize fatigue and prevent muscle cramps and heat prostration due to excessive perspiration.

As if that wasn't enough, we decided to add the Photon Micro-Light at no additional cost !

Aquamira Water Filter Straw in use

PLEASE NOTE: While we still supply the Water Purification Straw with our kit, we have been forced to leave the straw stem outside of the kit, until we find a better solution. The manufacturer no longer produces these with an accordion style straw, due to past problems of wearing at the bend of the straw. We do not wish to cut the straw in order to fit it in the kit, but leave this as a possible alternative for the customer, who may wish to do so. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
