Survival DIY Gear Repair Kit: 12 Required Items

A lot of time and energy is spent on acquiring gear that is either stowed away for a rainy day or used frequently. 

We talk about the best gear to purchase and all the different ways that it can be used. 

Our gear is incredibly important to us and we rely on it greatly. But what do we do when a piece of gear or clothing becomes damaged in some way when we are away from home?

This is an important question that does not receive much attention but is certainly worth addressing because sometimes we depend on that gear with our lives. 

And this is why it is so important to carry some type of gear repair kit. 

There are premade gear repair kits available that can be bought but I prefer making one myself. 

Creating a repair kit is not only easy but it can be cheaper and can be customized to your specific abilities and gear. 

12 Gear Repair Items to Include

Here are the items I like to include in a gear repair kit that is easy to carry in a pack or in a vehicle. 


The kind of tools that you put into a repair kit is going to depend on the gear that you carry.

For instance, there is no need to carry a screwdriver if none of your gear has this type of hardware. 

However, here are a few common tools that I find useful that many people probably already carry in an outdoor pack.
