Last Resort Urban Distress Kit
We've been playing with several SERE and last resort kits for some time. As advised by a reader, we changed the standard kit and we have now a layered kit, I.E. not in one single pouch. A post will come soon.
However, based on some of the projects and ops we did in the past and in recent developments on urban areas, we also put together a small and easy to hide last resort urban distress kit. This is not a SERE or survival kit. This will not really help you if you get caught (remember Rule 5), but in you are hiding, trying to blend in and you need to break into a location to find a computer and send a distress signal, this can help.
- Bogota Ti Nano Lock Picks from Hard Case Survival
- A Tiny Inconspicuous Handcuff Key from Vigilant Gear
- A shim
- An EZ Decoder from ITS Tactical
- A tiny USB drive with a minimal Linux installation
- Oscar Delta Micro Go-Tube
Linux can be booted from this drive and it will automatically send an SOS signal via email, SMS and other means to a preprogrammed location. Sort of fire and forget. However, it also has a web browser with TOR and other utilities that can help us navigate around the city we are currently located.
Also, we'll add a micro photon light to the kit.
We are trying to get a different container or pouch to carry this and I have contacted Law Industries to see if they can built a custom pouch for us.
Or, if anyone is willing to put together the small pouch please contact us.
EDIT: NZ, an old time reader and friend of the Red Teams suggested that we use the Law Industries Covert Patch Pocket for this kit. It's a good idea. Here you have some pictures.
For now it's working. I can't fit a photon micro LED there, but maybe we should consider another illumination source.
In any case, I am also working with Law Industries on a different pouch.
