BOB COOPER | Survival Kit

Developed by outback survival expert Bob Cooper, the Survival Kit contains all the necessary items for survival in the wilderness. Designed and tested in the outback, the kit's quality components have been selected specifically to be the most versatile and effective system of survival.

Bob Cooper has identified the 'Big 5' priorities of survival to be water, warmth, shelter, signals and food. Using this practical kit, in conjunction with the included instruction and survival tip sheet, you can survive in the Australian outback until you walk out or assistance arrives.

Packed in a compact tin small enough to fit into a large pocket and weighing only 434 grams, it is durable and lightweight. Already used by the Australian Defence Force, pilots, government agencies, and mining companies, this kit is ideal to take with you while camping, hiking and fishing, as well as for keeping in your vehicle while you are on the road.

Included in the 32 components are:

  • First aid items
  • Water sterilisation agents
  • Fire lighting tools
  • Pocket knife
  • Mini survival cards
  • Water procurement bags
  • Signalling devices
  • Mini compass
  • Assorted fishing gear

ABOUT BOB COOPER:

For over 30 years Bob has honed his survival skills by learning from many traditional cultures. His experiences include living for extended periods with Aboriginal people in our Western Desert, sharing bushcraft abilities with the Bushmen of the Kalahari in Botswana also with the Lakota Sioux Indians in Dakota and jungle time with the Orang Asli people in Malaysia.

His roles have included instructing the Special Forces Units, conducting survival courses throughout Australia, lecturing with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Service on survival in the Mexican Desert and delivering wilderness lessons in the UK.

Bob’s long term commitment to protecting and enhancing the enjoyment of people venturing or working in the Australian bush, won his Outback Safety and Survival Course the prestigious Excellence in Safety Training Award, from the State chapter of the Safety Institute of Australia in 1996.

As a society we need to recapture the survival skills and empathy with nature which our ancestors instinctively knew. True appreciation of our natural environment may be the only factor that saves it and, on occasions, us.

Teaching is Bob’s contribution to this necessary new awareness.
