You "Hit" the problem right on the head!! I NEVER could assign a teck level to them. I never wanted to be locked into a tech level....but if im Forced to make a decision, it would be High Anti-Grav and all that covers!!....Some mixed equipment.

Geeez...you got ME to admitt to something!!!

Ok...
A radio/emergency beacon
Survival rations
These not so tasty bars, three of which will keep a human alive for a day. Labeled for morning, midday & evening consuption. They don't taste good for a reason. You don't want people snacking on these things!

A condensing canteen. This device can draw moisture from the from air, filling it's one liter storage compartment in two hours in a standard atmosphere with a standard humidity. It also has a filter system water added in more traditional methods.

Firestarting equipment. Probably some sort of butane torch with a built in flint & steel backup.

A large honking knife. The kind you can chop down small trees with as well as dress a medium sized critter like a deer (insert standard K'kree bar-b-q joke here).

Some sort of simple firearm. Like a AR-7, or a double barreled shotgun with a combination of slug & buckshot rounds.

Just how big is this kit going to be? With everything mentioned so far, you'd need to add an ATV just to carry it around.
I would guess that they would be issued a general purpose survival kit, then add-ons depending on the environment...

TJ, Maspy is right. You need to specify what level of survival this is for. The SAS have a three level survival gear mentality.
Level One-This is what you have in your rucksack. This includes food, water, shelter, clothing, ammo, mission specific tools, team radio, ammo, medical kit, ammo, special weapons, and ammo.
Level Two-This is what you have in your web gear. This includes one meal, two canteens of water, ammo, knife, compass, mini survival kit, flares, tactical radio, back up weapon. Maybe some other goodies
Level Three-This is what you have when you are dumped in the river, shuck your gear and come up deep in enemy territory. This includes what ever you have concealed in your coat and pant seams, secret buttons (a la OSS). Pocketknife, what ever is in your cargo pockets, bootlaces, dog tags and little else.
