February 17, 2009

Adventure Medical Kits S.O.L. (Survive Outdoors Longer) survival kit. We have had this handy survival kit in our 3 day pack for a little over a year now. It looks about like it did when it was new. We have taken the items in and out of the kit many times. The S.O.L. Survival Kit includes: a small water filled button Compass, a small floating Mini Rescue Flash Signal Mirror, a yellow Slim Rescue Howler Whistle, eight Waterproof and Windproof Survival Matches in a plastic tube, three Waterproof Tinder Quik in a ziplock bag, a Heatsheets Survival Blanket, a Survival Fishing Kit in another plastic tube and 100 feet of re-rolled Duct Tape. The whole S.O.L. kit can fit into a water bottle or just about any pocket on a backpack or bag

The Ultimate Survival Technologies Deluxe Survival Kit has really good gear in a well made case. SImply one of the best survival kits available for well under $100. There is some room left for more gear in the water tight hard case. The UST case floats and securely locks shut.

BlastMatch Fire Starter

February 17, 2009

We had the chance to review a BlastMatch Fire Starter from Ultimate Survival Technologies. It is a flint and steel type fire starter designed for use with one hand in extreme conditions. It is robust, solid and well built with quality materials. This is the kind of gear you can risk your life on. We expected a lot after our research on this fire starter and we were not at all disappointed. This fire starting tool is one of the best all weather fire starters we have had the opportunity to use.

Tool Logic Survival II pocket tool

February 17, 2009

We were asked to review this Survival II Card pocket tool from Tool Logic. This version is in blue with a red LED light. Other models have a Compass / Magnifying Lens instead of the light, or a gray smoke color card. This handy little tool has enough useful features that it would be an excellent addition to any first aid or survival kit. We took these initial photos of the Tool Logic Survival II Card before we started testing it.

WetFire Chemical Tinder Fire Starter

February 17, 2009

We were asked to review the WetFire Chemical tinder from Ultimate Survival Technologies. This is an odorless, chemical cube, which feels like a mix of chalk, a marshmallow and a sugercube.. only this cube burns well even when wet. This chemical tinder works well for starting emergency fires. These cubes are individually wrapped in heavy foil pouches and would make an excellent addition to any survival kit.

Here is a video we made of our first time using the WetFire tinder on a cold windy day on Mt Lemmon in Tucson, Arizona

From the Ultimate Survival Technologies Website:

The perfect accompaniment to any fire starter, WetFire� tinder can help you get a blaze going even in a downpour. In fact you will find, these amazing cubes actually burn longer when wet!

WetFire� tinder was born from the need for a universal lighting material that was safe, odorless, easy-to-carry, and unaffected by wind or water. You might not be like the elite military troops for whom is was designed but you can be prepared like them.  If you are into the outdoors and find yourself hiking, camping, or backpacking you never know where you might end up and in what kind of weather. You need something that will light a fire in a rainstorm if needed, but even better are the bonuses of it being non�toxic and extinguishing instantly.
