Let's say you're hiking and you lost your backpack after falling in a river. You'very been swept downstream and become kinda lost. All you have is two pouches on your belt measuring 3"x6" (pic related). What would you want to be inside those pouches. Assume you have a belt made of 50' of woven paranoid and a relatively large knife Attached to that belt.

Lockpicks, smoke bombs, batarangs...

I don't have anything attached to the outside of my belt but I'm currently using a modified: S.O. Tech Riggers SERE Belt.

I have the belt wrapped with both #12 & #36 bank line.
Lashed to the inside of the belt I have a small fixed blade.
Behind that is some steel picture wire.
The back pocket contains:
An aluminum foil contain reinforced with Hvac tap
1 Freezer bag
1 Small ferro rod
2 Cotton balls with Vaseline

I decided on this because it's low drag and meets 4 of the 5 C's.

Bic lighter, food.
If I can avoid hypothermia and starving my way to stupidity I'll drink from the river and follow it out. You'll be wishing you had something to eat, I won't be wishing I had a leatherman or some other overhyped tool

What wood is suitable for the use your picture shows? Would hazel poles work or does the bark not come off that easily (plenty of hazel where I live but never tried to remove the bark like that).
>>
>>463141
Not him but wouldn't hazel bark be too thin and flaky? I want to try and make one.
>>
>>463145

Yeah, probably, but it was the first wood that came to mind because of the poles. I wonder if you have to do anything to it first like boil it or steam it?
