Adventure Medical Kit's Pocket Survival Pak: "Stop, Think, Observe, Plan"

You always think it won't happen to you, but it could. So why not be prepared?

Adventure Medical Kit's Pocket Survival Pak is a must-have for outdoor adventurers. Weighing in at just 3.9 ounces, it's just a little bit heavier than two tasty Lara Bars, and packed with tiny, lifesaving tools.

The Kit comes in a zip-lock sealable plastic pouch, and contains illustrated safety instructions, including: how to make a distress signal, how to collect water from plants, how to tie knots, how to identify itchy plants, how to find or make a shelter, and more. The kit also contains:

-a mirror and a whistle for signaling

-a compass to find your way

-a lens magnifier to help you read the tiny instruction manual

-tinder and spark for starting a fire

-a fishing kit (which can also be used to catch birds)

-nylon thread, needle, and duct tape for gear repairs

-aluminum foil for boiling water

-a nylon cord, wire, and safety pins for repairs, fishing, and building a shelter

-a stainless steel blade for cutting wood sticks

-a tiny pencil and paper so you can keep your mind active by writing a journal about your experience.

Clearly, I haven't had a chance to get lost in the woods and actually put these items to use, but you can't go wrong with a portable, packable, pre-packaged pouch of protection. Click on link below to purchase.

Bottom Line: Isn't your life worth saving? And what about your loved ones? Give one to every hiker on your holiday list.--E.D. (Nov '07)
