First it might be good to have some more personal protective equipment as joints (elbows and knees) protectors. Ruins is not friendly environment and during ruins exploration a lot of injuries may occur. Especially knees and elbows are exposed.

This is good to have googles. When your hammer strikes rubble splashes may hurt eyes.

Ear protection as small and lightweight and can make your life easier.

This is good to have some sand bags to reinforce after SHFT shelter and/or protect from bullets.

Nails, wood saw and small hammer are useful during small wooden structure building. Metal wire and different tapes is good supplement of all set. This is good to have urban camouflage tape.

And in the end. Item which really can save your live is mirror. This is much saver to explore unknown rooms behind corner using mirror instead of exposing yourself to be a target of hidden or surprised attacker.

Now with all this equipment it will be easier to scavenge on civilization remains. What about looking for useful items in abandoned cars?

See what is worth consideration.

10 must have tools to scavenge on civilization ruins.


Imagine what you can scavenge in places other are not able to reach without 10 simple tools.

In crisis situation this is essential to be prepared to increase your chances to reach more areas than unprepared ones.

This is easy to buy axe, fire axe, pry bar and hammer.

Nowadays these 4 tools can be combined in combo tools. This is advantage to have one multiple usage tool as this is lighter to carry. This is good for escape scenario.

But when this tool is lost or broken you immediately  lose 4 tools.

For longer stay at city or when you are stacked in sieged city this is better to have some redundancy by having 4 separate tools.

Glows for hand protection is minimal level of personal protection. Some more you can find here.

This is good to have also some rope and or hooked ladder to reach or escape height exposure or depth areas.

Lightweight anchor helps to reach objects.

There will be also a lot of steel rods and other metal wires in ruined buildings. So bolt croppers and  pliers can help to clear the way and allow you more efficient scavenge.

This is good to have signal set to make marks for you and or your team at least to mark scavenged areas.

By using these simple powerless tools you can reach more places blocked by rubble. Some places are too high or in deep holes. This is good to have some advantage to make a way.

I believe these tools can be also helpful in normal life so this is good to have them even before SHTF. Any other tools ?

Please coment.
