Looks like a pretty good setup. How do you carry it? Water proof bag?

Nice looking kit.  More basic and compact than my backpacking kit.  I should take some stuff out of mine.  Anyway, who makes the orange knife and is the revolver a taurus .38?

Nice kit atfan! Welcome to the forum and +1! My parents are avid kayakers and you've given me an idea of what kind of stuff to get them for Christmas! Well minus the Smith&Wesson, that'd be a very expensive Christmas present.  ;D

I am curious to know what other gear some of you avid kayakers in your "BOK".

What piece of equipment or material would you recommend for a Bug-Out Kayak?

I always carry a bug/mesh hat, sunscreen, and some small amounts of food (granola bars, mostly). It all gets stuffed into a hard Nalgene bottle, along with some similar items (whistle, small knife) similar to what the OP listed. A compass is a must, as well.

Having done 20+ extended wilderness/expedition type trips, mostly along the west coast of Vancouver Island, BC, Canada, lasting from 5 to 13 days....I must say that is a very nice kit, indeed.  The .38 would not be worth trying to smuggle into Canada, if coming from the states, but the rest of it is right on the money.  I did take a break-down 12 guage Browning made for Montgomery Wards a couple of times...but had to declare it.  It became such a hassle, that we started leaving it at home.  I was mainly concerned with bears.  Speaking of....I do believe in the right to arm bears.  PE

Mine's similar, with addition of the Adventure Medical Kits Marine 300;

It includes this:

I've tinkered with it a bit but its a good, solid kit right off the shelf. The book alone is almost worth the price of the kit.

I saw water treatment, but some bottles of water ready for times you don't have time to treat, such as flushing wounds or eyes.   Sun screen, sunburn treatment, and sunglasses, some the worst burns I've ever gotten were on the water.
With all the new and different mistakes out there waiting to be made, why keep repeating the same ones?

Agree on that one! Used to do a lot of sailing in my teens, and as boys most, sunscreen isn´t that much of a priority.. untill your get home and looks like and feel like an overcooked lobster!

I've learned from almost deadly experience, you must have some sort of kit on your person at all times. When you capsize and you go one way and yer boat goes the other way, what you have on your person,  may be all you have for days.

Love the BOK kit you've assembled, these are all great ideas I'm going to take into consideration as I purchase my first kayak.  Thanks for posting and the pics!

Good deal my friend.  Many people think "Its a three hour tour.  What could go wrong?".  I am glad to hear that you are thinking ahead to CYA.

     I don't see a "throw rope", or maybe that's considered boat gear and not kit gear. When we'd play around fast water we always had a throw rope handy.

I  would add a couple space blankets(signaling/cover),additional fire starting gear(match holder) and survey tape (signaling)...and a small flashlight plus paracord and a metal water bottle...plus maybe a SAWYER water filter.

     Do you carry some sort of "patch kit"? We put a crack in a fiberglass canoe in some rapids. The duct tape we had helped, but wasn't ideal. The reason I ask is that there must be a tape that will stand up to immersion and stick to various hull materials. I know it's boat equipment, but the right tape can be a useful addition to any survival kit.

When I bought my Alpacka packraft, I bought some Tyvek tape also. The hardware stores should carry it. Its a get home repair tape for inflatable boats. When used with other tape, etc, it might repair a plastic canoe. It seems very sticky and strong. Not sure how it would work on a canoe. Check these folks for canoe repair and tripping stuff. Order their catalog.

Great Kit!, Very similar to what I would carry while out floating the San Juans. I kept my .357 in a chest holster I made that rode under my vest, I know several people who like to use ankle holsters while kayaking, but since I was in shorts most the time I didn't try that.

I also kept a spare pair of thin/cheap sunglasses in my kit...I couldn't survive without them for long. And a pair of tweezers for critter/splinter removal!

In my little repair/first aid type bag I kept 2 part epoxy cement aka PC11 along with various tapes. I like Nashua Black 357 since it was UV rated, and some gaffers tape.

never seen those magnifying glasses, very cool.
