Pathfinder School Basic Class Equipment List Rundown

Did this video help you?

legalizeit79: Dave seems like a totally cool dude. Not some douche that is full of himself. Dave i respect your knowledge and the fact that you obviously enjoy sharing it. Been watching you for years .Thank you for the many useful things you have taught me just from watching the videos you make,

SanFranciscoBay: I would think that instead of sending all the students out to buy this gear, it would be more efficient for the students if Dave or his assistants were to buy it in bulk, reduce it in size, package it and make it available to his students to purchase what they don't have. When a student arrives, they buy what they need, ie 1/4 bag of steel wool $2, 100' of bank line $2, roll of duct tape $5, ferro rod $20, knife $20-300, stainless steel cup and bottle $30, tarp $5-80...

Jack Wolf: i thought mora knives where full tang?

Jeremy Tarrant: Your Military background teaching style works for me. I hope to attend a class or two in the future. Good job on this and other videos! 

amanda covington: Hi dave my name is caleb I'm a big fan I've been watching u sense i was 10 and before u stop doing dual survival and i wanted to no if u have to be 18 to take the pathfinderschool classes because I'm almost seventeen now and would like to no please respond if possible

MD Digger: your the man dave keep doing what you do.. thank you so much. Ryan

Coolnicknameguy: you forgot the beer Dave.. that's a must to survive..

Russell Suender: I'm not very good using a flint and steel.I tried knapping a piece of quartz,no go could'nt get a decent edge on it.As I was using what somewhat edge of the quartz to strike the steel,the quartz kept chipping.The worst was hurting my fingers as I was trying to get a spark.There were some sparks not nearly sufficient to ignite excellerant ie charcloth,What am I doing wrong?

Andrew Gman: Haha! I was just looking around, the school is only 30 minutes from me! 

Lemon Lemon: Nice vid but u need to name the knives that fail so I won't waste my money

Julia Pape: Can't wait to attend this class with my bf next year for our joined birthday present to each other! What a great experience it will be, and I can't wait to meet you to learn from the best!!!!

Fishers of Men Ministries: I just realized that I have the same condor knife. Cool

Josh Lewis: Good job, you're a good man Dave 

julia motos: Can't wait to attend this class next year with my bf for our birthdays.... Exvied to learn and meet you

want-a-be woodworker: Thanks for the info Dave!! Now do you have any videos on how to convince your wife to let you go to the school? (LoL) 

cowboysfanzz77: So I live in Idaho. If I come all the way they're ate you the one that will be teaching? 

Coolnicknameguy: bk2, 8 by 10 tarp, canteen, water jug.. firesteel, 50 feet of 550paracorde and a good compass is the absolute minimum Id have on me to not suffer in the outdoors.. ideally Id have a whole walmart in my backpack 

Klein-Horus: thanks dave for this lesson and show off

Survivingknives: I Love your vids and I wish u were still on dual survival and I was wandering if u could put my name out there in one of your vids that would help me a lot because I just got started on YouTube and I need a little help so that would be awesome thanks for your vids and your skills that you past down to me keep up the good work 

specter madrid: Hey dave you dont have tell us what knife fails .....but would you buy and use a BK2...need to know ...thanks and great video

Billy Taylor: My nephew and I are planning a trip for next year.

Loren Littlejohn: I understand all the criteria for the knife except the blade length. Anyone know why he wants it at least 5" long?

wfd805: Very well done. I like how you emphasized not to duck out if you don't have a specific thing. If I could, this one would be a 2 thumbs up. Good list and quick reasoning. Enjoy and stay safe. ~ Chet

Darrell Strickland: Dave, I've always thought that candles were great to have in a kit, so much so, that I usually carry two, one in a dedicated candle lantern and one as part of my fire kit. The cheap dripping candles work great at starting fires in wet conditions,(assuming of course that you can light the candle) and they can add a few degrees of heat inside your shelter. Candle wax can be used in waterproofing, lubricating and a dozen other applications. They don't need batteries. If you break one, you get two. They're reliable. They even start with the letter 'C'. But I've never heard you mention one. Am I wrong about candle power?

Stephen Sherman: I really want to go take your course now. i might try your dvd this year

Numeral Gibbons: what condor is that? the condor mini-bushlore?

monk fu: honest review bud. keep it up top bloke

Steven Anderson: Awesome, found your site, looked at your webpage, and am now putting money away to gather some pieces as funds become available.. Excellent Presentation.. brought memories back to my navy instructor training,, Demonstrate for the student, , do with the student, have student perform ,,,Thank you

aaron cuyler: nice

Countryboy85: I plan on buying the 10L dry bag off the pathfinder store but I am just trying to get an idea of the size of the 10L dry bag, the orange bag you have there is that a 5L or 10L bag.

Chris Gallant: you rock man way to break it down now all a need is a passport lol

ricstormwolf: I'm a huge fan of yours, Dave. I was wondering why you wouldn't trust your life to a $25 compass. I want to buy a compass from your website, but $85 is kinda pricey for me at the moment and I was considering the $25 one. But, now I'm not so sure. Haha

Trace Hammer: what about browse beds 

Bennett Lanza: If two is one and one is none...doesn't that mean that two is none? Ps. Nice vid

The Lurker: Dave you just sold me on the course with this video. I like the bit about not nit picking about gear. Question though. I have a Becker BK2, if I ground a space on the spine to strike a ferrol rod would that work? Might try and swing this class this year. Great work.

james spurles: What specific items would you suggest putting in a survival pack? 

alzathoth: hey dave, you really need to do a video of the contents of the "Pathfinder Basic Survival Pack" kit. what suunto compass does the kit come with? will I need anything else for the basic class? thanks again for another great video. :)

Jeff Buzzard: this is great info Dave, thank's 

comfortouch: The issue of taking your classes isn't in the cost of supplies, or the cost of the class; it's in the travel costs! It would be great if you/your instructors traveled to major areas (ie: Sacramento, CA) and held classes. I belong to a non-extreme 'prepper' group that would easily take up 20+ places in just one of your classes, if we didn't have the travel expenses.


Alejandro Bustamante: thanks for this video. excellent information! it would be nice to see this bundled in your store to get a good deal for all the kit you need. different bundles could be created for different needs/classes. it would also be nice to see a list of the equipment in the description along with links to the items in your store. no reason why you shouldn't be able to generate additional revenue by drawing those connections, and we would all love the convenience of the links. keep these great videos coming!

Phillip Leman: Awesome

George Wamser: I bought your book on Amazon, and I just wanted to say: you rule!

mindbonker: must be nice...

Raf C: Hey Dave, thank you for the great videos! I have a question, what do you recommend for shoes? I know this is not a question Cody would be able to answer haha

wildernessoutfitters: If you are not learning to be prepared then yes you may have to rely on nothing, but I would challenge you to creat a cutting tool that will even perform simple tasks in an area with no knappable stone? The reason for being prepared with at least the 5 C's is because these are the items ALL Cultures have relied on since Ancient times.

Liquid-Skin: No audio problems here maybe you could take the two seconds to turn up your speakers bro or possibly even tap that + volume button on your keyboard. All good here Dave thanks for post.

Joshua2019: put all the broken blades in a box and send them to me please.. I can use them for all kinds of stuff.

Hero Of The Otaku: Hey Dave have you ever conducted a class in Maine if not would it be a possibility?

kabaruser: keep teaching em dave good job
