With spring having arrived and the weather being suitable for spending time outdoors, now is the perfect opportunity to try out some new survival gear.
Although survival gear is most often thought of as items on a list, which are only needed in the event of an emergency, it is important to be familiar with your survival gear before an emergency arises.
Becoming proficient with your survival gear will provide you a higher percentage of survival in the event a self-reliance situation should occur.
Survival gear encompasses a broad spectrum of products, and while we will mention a few of our favorites, there is no end to what survival gear you can test and put to use this time of year.
New Survival Gear
Self Reliance Outfitters is constantly developing new and improved survival gear. Since we believe your life depends on the gear you choose, we are always working to provide only the best. Here is a sample what products you may want to check out and put to use this spring.
1. Pathfinder Wilderness Rations
Packaged in convenient one-serving packs, the Pathfinder Wilderness Rations provide a quick, easy, and energy-packed meal when you need it most. Each serving is pre-measured and only requires adding the necessary amount of water.
Include the Pathfinder Wilderness Rations in your survival kit and always be assured of a hearty meal. Easy to cook and carry, the Pathfinder Wilderness Rations should make the list when considering your next purchase of survival gear.
2. Suunto MCA-D IN Compass
Suunto has become a trusted brand for those who spend a considerable amount of time in the outdoors. Crafted with advanced designs to ensure reliable navigation, the Suunto MCA-D IN Compass is, without question, one of the best compasses on the market today. If it’s not already on your list or in your survival kit, this is a ‘must’ for those seeking dependable survival gear.
The Suunto MCA-D IN Compass is the perfect addition to your list of survival gear based upon its fixed declination correction scale, jewel bearing, sighting notch, mirror and inch scale.
Many navigational devices today are dependent upon batteries and technology. The Suunto MCA-D IN is only dependent on earth’s timeless gravitational pull.
3. TrailMaster Reel Travel Kit – Spin/Fly
Spring is the perfect time to wet a line and especially with the TrailMaster Reel Travel Kit. Whether you prefer to cast a spinner reel or drift a fly, the TrailMaster Reel Travel Kit allows you to do both.
