Your on a day hike and you hurt your leg, and you have to stay the night. How would you survive through-out the night with only a day pack supplies
Definately a scenario where you are injured and you have to survive. maybe splint your leg to mimic the injury or put your arm in a sling (I think making a fire one handed could be rough)
Went to far and did not make it back in time to meet your ride home and had to stay another night. How would let your ride know where you were and when to pick you up, for your ride home!
While on a day hike, you decide to leave the trail to explore thinking that you willuse your GPS "bread crumb" feature to find your way back only to find that yourbatteries have failed and your son "borrowed" your back ups. Night time is fastapproaching and you have no cell service. Your pack contains a ThruNite Ti, a canof baked beans, your ferro rod, .5 liters of water, a compass, and a tarp. Good luck.
All of your electronics, batteries, Bic lighter, flint...all of your mechanical devices...all of it...dead, lost or broken. But you have always been interested in astronomy. You know where Polaris is located. You know the direction from where you came and where you have to go. In other words, the only tool you have from being lost and destroyed, with no external extraction possible, is your brain to keep you warm, dry, hydrated, and on the path home. Time frame 3 days, 2 nights.
On a simple day hike without telling anyone where you were going you have only a small flashlight, pocket knife, cell phone (No Service of course) and small water bottle with you. You get lost and find yourself in a strange place on a cloudy moonless night and because you are visiting relatives who just moved to the area you are unfamiliar with the area. It has happened many times. How do you survive?
On way home from work in snow storm and roads become to dangerous to continue, but close to home. You think you can walk home. Only to find out to late that you can't make it. Time for emergancy shelter and fire.
I would like to see one but only if someone else was to be with you just in case something serious happens and turns out to be a real survival night. Case such as you may want to show how to survive if you injure yourself, but then you get hurt and have no way to get back to the car, is pitch black and your phone is dead.

You are in a blizzard on a seldom traveled road and you go off into the ditch. There is no cell service. You have the usual car items and an emergency kit with jumper cables, a blanket, lighter and tin can. You have under half a tank of gas and the storm is expected to last several more hours. What do you do?
Day hike gone bad....you injure yourself. Either leg or arm...after splinting and immobilizing you need to survive 24-48 hrs one just what you E.D.C. and what you carry in your day pack.Love The Outdoor Gear Review. Keep up the great work and videos....
Take what you would on a couple hour hike. Like the 10 essentials and along those lines.
Day hike, got lost, broke leg. This scenario goes though my mind every time i go on an day hike so it would be interesting to see what works and what doesn't.
I think the whole survival-thing is a little worn out, but if you're doing something like that, I'd be most interested to see some navigation tips and tricks in a bad weather scenario.

A number of flashlights make use of battery power more quickly compared to others, and it really depends if you want to acquire more affordable batteries that will only last one time versus the higher priced rechargeable batteries that may be used frequently over. Bussmann Fuses
