Wide plastic rolls that movers use to cover floors with is great for making a quick clear temporary structure to keep the weather off yourself, reflective back thin insulation is better for heat retention but the plastic can make little windows for light and a view.
mine's the older silver AR-7.
How about a Ruger 10/22 takedown with a scope in a dry bag with real food for $400.00?
Only issue i see is having the Henry survival kit printed on the side. Everything else is just additionsas you suggested. Thank you for all your videos, take care and Godbless.
Isn't it past time they offer a threaded AR7?

Good review, most of the additional items I already carry in a GHB. The rifle has been on the “to get list” for awhile.
gun= about $250 so, the rest of the kit is $300??? bit steep henry..let's get real. work on that.Thanks for the info Sootch.
So, If Henry designs a mini optic, to fit the rail, and in the general shape of the magazine, it could fit into the third magazine slot in the butt stock storage area.

I laughed out loud…. literally.
8 rounds per mag, oops, clip for all you anti gun people who don’t know what they are talking about
When the park ranger wants to check your bag your screwed! I'm guessing you dont need a conceled carry permit for this but the law would come down on you hard with that in your bag
What's all that white stuff? I live in AZ never seen anything like that before..
I have already purchased all of these survival kit items or their equivalent. I just don't have the rifle. I can get it for $250 or less. I'm still pondering whether it's something I actually want. That bag is good for keeping all of that stuff together under the seat of your truck I guess, but I already have a few different bags for carrying my gear. If I had the rifle, I would just put it in one of the bags I already have. If you have a hiking or bug out bag, and then if you have this bag,…now you have an extra bag to carry or attach to your existing bag. I say, parse it down and keep it simple. However, for some folks, this bag could work as their get home or survival bag, especially after adding a few more items. I didn't see any shoulder straps for mounting on the back or over the shoulder, or molle straps for attaching to another bag, so carrying it with your hands is a setback in my opinion. I like to have my hands free for other tasks and would not want to be setting the bag down just to free up my hands when I need to.
I own this gun,a very nice plinker,hides real well!!and yes it will float

Great ideal but 550 is pricey for the little bit of extras one improvement would be Molly straps on the bag to affix to your for pack great review of the product.
All I need to take my neighbor's AR15
screw your trumfph quote
That's awesome! I have the Rifle , a similar bag ..I guess I need to buy/ put together a kit
Some may say they should've went with a fixed blade ( such as the $20-ish Bucklite max for example ), but I think this light duty daily use type folder is a perfect backup blade for the kit because a fixed blade should be on your belt.I just can't think of a situation where this would be needed and with you that a good fixed blade wouldn't also so I think they made a solid choice.
Nice, but the lack of shelter and better fire starters was a disappointment. I would rather have a booboo kit than a tourniquet. If you really need a tournequitte is an SHTF situation then you are likely dead. But having something to keep infections down like bandaids, triple antibiotic ointment, alcohol wipes, tweezers, and some basic medicine like ibuprofen, benadryl, and imodium would likely serve you much better. A small Cree flashlight would be nice too, but I with no faricium rod and no tinder it is basically worthless. Some waterproof matches and a jerry can and cantine and some water pills would have been nice too. A squeeze bottle to fill and filter into a canteen would be nice too. A few fishing hooks, line and sinkers and maybe some snares would have been good too… No toilet paper or baby wipes, whistle, compass. Basically you have a gun and a knife and a nice little bag.
Great video Sootch!
If you are into survival gear, you probably have most of these things already.
I purchased my AR-7 in 78-79? it was 69-70 bucks back then. I still have it and it still works fine. It was charter arms back then. I just purchased extra clips for it. That survival kit is pretty weak, no disrespect to the makers. I have a black waterproof canvas backpack. It has a water bladder in it as well. Depending in where you live you really need to build it to your specific needs and the area you travel most in. Some things are basic, others are not. The little AR-7 works best with CCI mini mag. Other types seem to jam more often. It also gets " lead " build up very quickly including the inner workings..You need to keep it clean…or it will jam..alot!!..A bottle of hoppes #9.rag,oil..keep it in a Ziploc bag..You can use the oil and rag to start a fire in a pinch….Mine still works after 38 years……like anything else..Take care of it, it takes care of you..
I have found on eBay emergency adventure quick clot bandage kits for $19 each and the bag will actually fit in an ammo pouch. So you could technically put two or three of those in that survival kit. I would even add a bIvi And actually be good to go very impressed I would add these things that I mentioned above however really good kit from Henry arms
I want one and I will definitely get a Bushnell TRS 25 red dot with a QD base. That way I can have a quick mount red dot packed away in the bag ready to go with spare batteries of course. Great video really cool gear

The oval t is stupid. Why???? Guess if you have z gun and shoot your self.
Mylar is a placebo it is not ment as a stand alone blanket.
Man I want one so bad it looks so cool and compact

They should make a kit for really hot conditions. The straw also very good, could they make one which enables you to drink seawater?
Wow! I had to rewind and listen to that again…$550 for the whole kit? Let's see, I bought the rifle at Wal-Mart for $99 on sale (btw, really like the rifle), so that makes the bag and Dollar store items worth $450?? C'mon Sootch… really??
My grandfather told me they gave the Henry survival rifle to paratroopers back in the day
I love Henry Firearms I bought one of these and was really let down by the quality of the product I was really surprised because I would stand behind most of their products 100% but this rifle is useless front sight kit falling off jamming and shaving rounds till I had to take it completely apart and clean it from all the lead shavings a total waste of money and they need to do a recall
Figures they come out with this a year after I buy just the rifle
limbs can go for a really long time with a torniquet on. you'll just need some bicarb, and you'll be fine.
Henry is awesome.
Looks neat, and I'm glad that Henry is putting something like this out. But surely it's possible for someone to build their own survival kit for less, and gear it towards their specific environment. A little bit of internet research should provide an ample number of ideas.
Still not a big fan of 22 for a survival rifle I pefer a 12ga single barrel coach gun and also a sub caliber adapter for a survival rifle
The only thing I don’t like about this rifle is they need a better way to hold the butt stock cap on. When I first got mine the cap was very tight and hard to get off, but after taking it on and off a few times it got so loose that it simply falls off. When I stole the rifle away, now I have to add duct tape to hold the cap on.
I already own the Henry AR Survival Rifle. Is it possible to purchase the cloth kit with contents minus the Rifle?
Once again, an ideal survival kit, with one notable exception, except it seems no one ever notices or says anything…. how about a knife sharpener???
Nice kit. Everyone overlooks Buck knives but I've used a Buck 110 Folding Hunter or 112 Ranger for decades in the outdoors. They take and hold a great edge while being at a common-man price. Thanks for the video Sootch!
The Henry AR7 is a great little reliable, durable, and packable rimfire rifle. The little sucker is accurate. Tight little groups. I only had to tap or drift the front sight over just a bit to get it zeroed. Trigger is horrendously heavy but does not seem to affect its accuracy. Firing it repeatedly will wear on the trigger finger a bit unless the trigger edges are smoothed down. Factory mags only for it and it will run. Got my Henry AR7 years ago for about $216. It was worth it. Survival kits should be tailored to individual needs and be small enough that it will actually be carried and used. This kit looks like a good kit to build around as a guideline with the basic items included, water, shelter, fire, food, cordage, and cutting tool. Signaling and a mini first aid kit would be a nice addition to the tourniquet. With the rifle more food can be taken and used for defense. Kits cannot replace a good base of bushcraft skills. The kits are just aids to survival. The more we learn by practicing, the less we need to carry. But this kind of kit is practical for the slightly above average person as long as they already have some skills. Thanks for sharing, Don.
Would be nice if Henry would include the weight of the Henry US Survival Pack. I could not find a weight measure.
nicely put together
THE GREEN MACHINE
Give me 15-22 or 10-22
How do you think this compares to the TakeDown Ruger 10/22?
Great review and Henry is such a good company.
