As Hurricane Sandy furiously barrels on like a scorned woman — and the East Coast grinds to a halt — we thought we’d leave you with a parting post today recapping some of our recent survival and outdoor gear. Keep in mind: this doesn’t include a basic survival kit, which we assume you already keep around the house stocked and ready to last several (if not more) days.

In case you need a recap on your most basic kit, here’s what we suggest for a 3-7 day self-sufficiency hoard: one gallon of water per person per day, non-perishable food, can opener, first-aid kit, toiletries, meds, phones and cables (don’t be the ass looking for a Lightning cable during a hurricane), flashlight, multitool and knife, solar charger, battery-powered radios, batteries, sleeping bags, blankets, a good book, game or iPad and plenty of cash.
