Yes, it’s designed for pilots who fly their aircrafts over rough terrain. However, the Skinner Sights Bush Pilot Survival Kit is actually equipped as a handy addition to any backcountry explorer’s stash, so whether you’re flying, hiking, or motorcycling your way deep in the boondocks, this kit should help you rough it out while making your way back to safety.
While aimed at bush pilots, it doesn’t actually include anything that will help you fix up a broken plane and get it back to running condition. Instead, this small collection is designed to give you shelter, help you start fire, and equip you to hunt for food, ensuring you’re well-rested and well-fed as you find your way out of a crappy situation.
Every survival kit needs a weapon and the Skinner Sights Bush Pilot Survival Kit’s designated shooter is a Winchester 1892 clone rifle, with a .44 magnum chamber, Skinner aperture sights, and a 6 + 1 capacity. They also throw in a RAT-7 OKC survival knife (7.2-inch carbon steel blade), a two-person tube tent, Titan matches housed inside a sturdy capsule, a Doan magnesium fire starter, a Ration-brand cooking stove, Hexamine fuel tablets, a Brunton scouting compass, and 50 feet of mil-spec 750 parachute cord.
All these come packed in a folding padded carry bag constructed from a 1,000-denier Cordura shell and 500-denier lining, so it’s super tough. Bag features include MOLLE attachment pointsfor the knife sheath, easy-open full-width buckle, and an exterior ammo pouch that can hold a 50-round box of .44 Magnums.
Available now, the Skinner Sights Bush Pilot Survival Kit is priced at $1,799.
