Yet the stories that customers post to the Survival Straps website provide testimony to their utility. Walchle’s favorite story is that of a U.S. soldier in Iraq named “James” who says he staunched a bleeding leg wound with his bracelet.
This Survival Straps® Survival Bracelet™ looks great on your wrist and delivers so much more than style! Proudly made in the USA, Survival Straps Survival Bracelets are made of 550 lb. strength military paracord. Wear your Survival Bracelet as an eye-catching accessory and, if an emergency arises, unravel your bracelet for use in survival. This Survival Straps Bracelet boasts an extremely durable, marine grade stainless steel shackle that adjusts for a custom fit. For optimum safety, all adjustable shackle closures come with a breakaway pin that can be used instead of the stainless steel pin. So that you never hesitate to use your bracelet, Survival Straps guarantees a replacement if you have to unravel yours – all you pay is shipping! Simply mail or email the company a story and photo of how you used the bracelet. Complete instructions are included in your owner’s manual. This Survival Straps Regular Survival Bracelet measures approximately 1”W x 9”L, fits wrist sizes of 6-1/2″-8-1/2″ and contains about 14 feet of paracord. Breakaway pin included for safety. Color: Woodland Camo/Neon Orange. Made in USA.
I’m always on a tight budget, so yes, much of my kit is recycled or repurposed. Always remember, you don’t have to go out and buy everything. Adapt, improvise, and overcome. The most beautiful trout I ever caught was caught on a fresh cut bit of bamboo about 4 feet long, dental floss, and improvised wooden fish hook with a beetle tied to it as bait. That beetle put up one hell of a fight. Dental floss is an excellent investment for bugging in or out. Besides the obvious use of dental hygeine, it’s very tough, compact and lightweight in it’s own little super convenient package, and can be used in any application where a bit of string would serve better than 550 cord/paracord. Can even be used to close wounds in a pinch, multiple strands can be braided together for applications requiring more tensile strength when 550 cord is unavailable, and can be woven into a net. I used some braided strands in Afghanistan as an improvised bootlace to serve my needs until I got back to my patrol base where my spare laces were stowed.
Absolutely LOVE my bracelet! and so does everyone else! I get tons of compliments from everyone who see’s it, and I also get ALOT of thank you’s from veterans and family members of veterans. I have a wounded warrior in my family and I will do anything I can to support him every chance I get.

In a telephone conversation, Kurt Walchle, who founded Survival Straps about eight years ago, gave me this explanation of the technology “embedded” in his bracelets: About a year ago we partnered with the Navy Seal Foundation and a couple of their guys got in touch and said, ‘Guys you really need to take a look at this technology,’ so we were introduced to this InBalance Technology company. InBalance Technology is a company set up by a scientist guy. So we get together and they are in the middle of military testing but they were looking for a delivery device for the commercial market so we got together and tested it, so that’s kind of how we hooked up.
When things go wrong in the wilderness, you have one priority; Survive! The Henry Arms Survival Kit was built with that goal in mind. This survival kit, built to fit into a pack or cargo pocket, contains the most needed items in sufficient quantities to handle just about any wilderness survival application. Versions of this kit are currently in use by numerous organizations, to include the U.S. Army.
Above all else, spending time outside should be about having fun.

Survival Straps use military issue 550# test paracord for its Apple Watch Strap. Each strap is custom-made to fit and the company offers 49 color options. Depending on your measurements, each Apple Watch Strap includes roughly 12 feet of useable paracord.
It’s about creating a site that keeps people engaged, gets them clicking and lowers bounce rate and if you read about SurvivalLife over on DigitalMarketer.com you’ll see them talk about how they initally went with a really clean design similar to Uncrate.com but their bounce rate was terrible so they made the site really messy and ugly and bounce rate dropped dramatically.
I purchased a credit card knife for a few bucks at http://survivallife.com/credit-card-knife/. I signed up for NOTHING else.

It may take a while before your trap catches something so in the meantime, use another part of the 550 cord for fishing. By attaching a sharp hook and bait into a strand of the bracelet, you just might have a chance of grilling seafood for dinner.

People use our straps for all different kinds of things. We’re about helping people, and we especially like to support our armed forces. So far, we’ve donated about $445,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project, and our goal is to get to $1 million by Christmas time. Our customers buy our care packages and send them overseas, and we usually match their donation so that all the guys in the unit can be outfitted with a Survival Strap. Overall, about 10 percent of our net is donated. We started the replacement program, because we would get letters from customers telling us that they were in a situation where they could have used their strap, but they loved it too much to destroy it, so we started the initiative that if you send us your story, we’ll send a new Survival Strap for free.
Re: Tradeable Goods. I noticed Phil made the comment about gold being high priced. It seems to me that a significantly large number of people are not aware that gold coins come in sizes as small as 1/10th of an ounce (for about the cost of six silver dollars or so) or maybe they don’t consider a gold chain, the links of which can be taken off one at a time and traded with the right person.
I received my H.R. Richter multi tool today and was pretty disappointed with the size of the tool, it was no bigger than my index finger. Yhe saw on the end of one of the blades looked as if it was only good for cutting tooth picks, and the blade was only big enough to gut a chipmunk. Sorry but for twenty dollars and five dollars for shipping and handling, I’m pretty disappointed.

In common words, the goal of human existence is to scramble for power and wealth.  Human society is just a stage for race, or competition. To the losers, competition is very cruel. Competition causes a lot of stress, so not everyone likes competition. If you give up, others, including your parents, will look down on you, and tell you that you are useless. Therefore, every one of us born in this society is forced to take part in the competition. Why is human society a stage for competition? Because human beings have needs. The first need is oxygen, and then the needs for food, water, clothes, housing and transportation are followed. All these things are not free, have limited supply, except oxygen. Nobody can survive without food, water, clothes and house, so, people feel unsafe, and then they desire for all these. This desire is limitless. Even if someone has gathered enough wealth for the rest of his life, he still wants to collect more for his children, even his grandchildren. The result of limited resources plus limitless desires is competition.

As a family we were trying to think of a way we could show solidarity with him while he was enduring The Crucible, the 54-hour exercise that is the defining moment of a Marine’s boot training.  Some families burn candles, but we didn’t want an open flame in the house when we would be at work or running errands.  So we decided to each design and wear a Survival Strap and not remove it until we were sure that he had earned his Eagle Globe & Anchor.
WITHOUT A DOUBT, MY WOUNDED WARRIORS BRACELET EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS AS FAR AS QUALITY AND COMFORTABILITY. HOWEVER, THE MOST IMPORTANT PART WAS HOW MUCH ATTENTION IT HAS DRAWN TO THE EFFORTS OF THE WOUNDED WARRIORS PROJECT. I AM AN INDUSTRIAL SALES REP WHO IS ON THE ROAD, IN FRONT OF THE PUBLIC AND CLIENTS, ALL OF THE TIME. I HAVE BEEN AMAZED WITH THE INTEREST THIS BRACELET HAS CREATED AND, HOPEFULLY, ASSISTED WITH MORE SUPPORT FOR THE CAUSE.
With a good set of binoculars you’re going to be able to see greater detail at further distances and with less eye strain than a cheap pair. Cheap binoculars are for your kids in the backyard looking at birds — not hunting game at far distances or traveling through the wilderness.

Unique to the Survival Straps brand is the stainless steel shackle available for most of the straps. The shackle provides a strong clasp that is also adjustable, with three different micro-adjustments. The glint of stainless, and the nicely engraved logo, gives these straps a serious look that I haven’t seen duplicated anywhere else. For those who worry about getting the bracelet caught in machinery or the like, Survival Straps includes a plastic break-away pin with every stainless steel shackle. Of course, if you don’t like the metallic shackle at all, a high quality plastic clip is also available.
Let’s say you’re thrust into an emergency situation where rescue is not desirable. Let’s say you must avoid detection and roaming threats. If you want to get some shut-eye, it would be near impossible without a perimeter alarm system.

The Survival Straps website is excellent, and there is far more information on the site than I can convey in this short column. The wrist straps are just the tip of the Survival Straps product line, which includes lanyards, key chains, watch straps, belts, and even dog collars. Wrist strap prices start at $24.95, and go up based upon the options selected.
Beyond material quality and getting a custom fit, another aspect that sets Survival Straps apart the from competition is that they are all handmade in the U.S. The build quality is really solid and makes me feel confident it will be able to handle lots of wear and tear with no problem.

A center draft oil lamp, or a regular oil lamp, or an old fashioned kerosene lantern are good things to have as well. They can double as small heaters in the right areas. With the center draft lamp you can use two types of fuel, either kerosene or low odor mineral spirits, but they can be a bit pricey and they are on the fragile side of the spectrum. If you get a center draft lamp, always remember: as with modern Coleman lanterns, Never store a lantern or center draft lamp with fuel in it, after awhile they gum up inside and can ruin the lamp.
In the real world, economic collapse won’t necessarily present itself overnight, and for those who don’t want to live in the woods, being able to transfer large sums of wealth from one country to another is a perfectly viable option. Obviously, for bartering, silver, alcohol, cigarettes, toilet paper, etc. are better options. Gold should just be viewed as a sort of insurance policy for monetary collapse, not for teotwawki.

It’s certainly part of your overall plan. I personally like to add extras like freeze-dried camping meals. They don’t weigh much and they’ll fill you up. For your home preps, ask yourself, “What if I run out of food (and grocery store day is tomorrow) when the roads go down?”
Hey, Todd! Yeah it’s a crazy list for sure. Took forever to compile!

This kit is an EXAMPLE for other kits to follow.
This post is exactly what I would hope to find…solid info with simple action steps to point us in the right direction, undoubtedly followed up with specific, detailed info products you can sell us. 🙂
Another level in some preparedness plans are Vehicle Kits. In some cases, supplies and equipment may be loaded into vehicle such as a van or truck with bicycle racks and an extra “reserve” gas tank. Some survivalists also carry a small (e.g., 250 cc) off-road-capable motorcycle in the van or truck.
Tip: There is no guarantee you’ll be in an area prime for hunting — not unless you do your research first and know where to enter the wilderness so that your journey takes you through remote areas where game is plentiful.
One final thought to consider are the side effects. The toxicity and flavor of iodine can be a little problematic. The iodine tablets are generally not a good choice for pregnant women, anyone with thyroid issues, or shellfish allergies. Picky children are also notorious for failing to drink iodine-infused water, which could lead to dehydration and other serious repercussions in an already dicey emergency. The Katadyn product is chlorine-based, the flavor of which dissipates over the allotted 4-hour waiting That product is widely tolerated and tastes much better.

Looks great in the photo’s, but it is not what I received. Very disappointing and not as sturdy/durable as expected based on the photos. The photos show (2 of the 3 photos they have on the page) this great stainless steel buckle and heavy stainless steel screw (similar to what I have received on other high dollar Paracord Survival Bracelets) set to hold it firmly in place. The bracelet I received has a cheap nylon plug to hold it together (photo of what I received attached). I assume that will last a couple of weeks and will loosen up from daily outdoor wear and tear or snap off. The photos advertising it are no doubt false and not the product they ship. It’s an absolute shame that a company that markets this worthy cause uses misleading photos to sell their substandard product. I have been on Amazon many, many years and this is the worst item I have received to date based on what was shown versus what I received.

“auto survival gear survival gear grappling hook”

As per the perspective of a human being, we are born, we grow old and older and die. Only a lucky few will live to be a hundred years old. When we are born, instead of viewing it as WE come into existence, let us switch our perspectives and think that the world comes into existence for us. And when we die, the world is no more for us. So, for us its only that 100 years of world with everything in it. After I am gone, there is no world because there is no ‘me’ to behold it. So, my purpose of life should be to enjoy and stay happy in those 100 years instead of worrying to make the world “a better place”.

n Buy your paracord from a reliable source to make sure it’s military-issue — that is, rated to uphold 550 pounds per strand. Cheaper paracord is on the market, but it’s weaker. Duke shops at three online sites: The Supply Captain, Survival-Pax Co. and Armed Forces Outfitters Inc.
I ordered 8 items on 7/16 & 7/17/15 & waited 21 business days without result (they charged my credit cards & I paid for the goods the day they were ordered). I called on 8/18/15 asking where my orders were. I was advised that they had a tracking number (never provided) but that the items were sold out. I asked when they’d be available without result. I demanded a refund which they agreed to provide. To my dismay, however, I discovered I had been charged $19.95 twice .unknowingly. I await the credit to my credit card. I was offended by the practice this firm engages in of unknowingly charging its customers $19.95 per order received without ever disclosing the fact that it will be doing so and without the customer’s knowledge or permission. This is a deceptive, offensive & unethical practice which honest merchants do not engage in. Accordingly, BE WARNED THAT YOU”LL BE CHARGED IMPROPERLY & YOU WILL NOT BE ADVISED OF SUCH CHARGES. OTHER REVIEWS MANIFEST THE FACT THAT THIS IS THIS MERCHANTS REGULAR CONDUCT. BEWARE!!!!!

Tools may include cutting tools such as saws, axes and hatchets; mechanical advantage aids such as a pry bar or wrecking bar, ropes, pulleys, or a ‘come-a-long” hand-operated winch; construction tools such as pliers, chisels, a hammer, screwdrivers, a hand-operated twist drill, vise grip glue, nails, nuts, bolts, and screws; mechanical repair tools such as an arc welder, an oxy-acetylene torch, a propane torch with a spark lighter, a solder iron and flux, wrench set, a nut driver, a tap and die set, a socket set, and a fire extinguisher. As well, some survivalists bring barterable items such as fishing line, liquid soap, insect repellent, light bulbs, can openers, extra fuels, motor oil, and ammunition.

It is helpful to understand the signs of an unsafe drinking source, which should be avoided at all costs.https://survivallife.com/water-2nd-pillar-survival/?utm_campaign=coschedule&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=SurvivalLF&utm_content=Conquering%20the%20Cornerstones%3A%20Water%20-%20the%202nd%20Pillar%20of%20Survival …
I prefer the Eton FR 350 radio over the Ambient Weather Emergency Radio. The problem is that neither radio can really take the beating of a survival situation, and the price of the FR 350 has become ridiculous since they were discontinued. We have a money-making market available for anyone who can produce an emergency radio that uses alternative power sources and is built to withstand a real crisis.
Tips: You can increase the likely hood of a trap catching an animal by arranging logs, brush and large rocks to narrow a path that leads straight into each trap you set — from both directions in fact. Squirrels and rabbits and other small mammals can be “funneled” into any trap that’s been set.
FOR THE SMALL AMOUNT IT COST, I AM CERTAIN IT HAS GENERATED 10 TIMES THAT MUCH SUPPORT FOR THE MOST IMPORTANT REASON THAT IS TO TAKE OF OUR VETERANS THAT HAVE SACRIFICED SO MUCH AND RECEIVED SO LITTLE IN RETURN.
Tent vs Tarp: Tents have an advantage over tarps — they zip tight and help protect from insects and snakes getting inside. The problem with a tent is that (unless it’s heavy duty canvas, which means bulk and weight) tents are prone to tearing and zippers breaking with repeat use. More expensive tents can have more life in them of course. If you have the budget for it consider a tent by North Face, Marmot, or Mountain Hardware — look for tents rated for use in areas like Mount Everest, as each of these brands has models used successfully on various expeditions. You want something that can withstand the beating that comes with repeat use if you plan on using your shelter for the long term.
To me, the best option is to store emergency food. How much? If you have none, store enough for a few days. If you have enough for a few days, get enough for a week. How much you store depends on what time frame you think you’re at risk for having to be completely independent. The early settlers of the southwest liked to store enough food for a whole year and still do to this day!
The folks at Survival Straps are serious about the tool aspect of their products. They don’t want you to hesitate to use your strap for its intended purpose. So much so, that the company will replace any wrist strap that you unravel for any reasonable purpose. All they ask is that you drop them a line, tell them about how you used the strap (preferably with a photo), and pay $5 shipping. As a result of this policy, Survival Straps has collected a bunch of stories about real world uses for their products that you can read on their website: www.survivalstraps.com. From a make-shift tourniquet to a tie down strap for gear, the real world uses for paracord are nearly endless.
If you’re struggling with the whole authority versus niche thing, this post on EmpireFlippers examines both and their pro’s and con’s and there’s a good video from Jill and Josh of ScrewTheNineToFive worth watching.

I ordered the Richter 15 knife (paid shipping cost only) and surprisingly, it arrived in just a few days! I like that! When I opened it up, it was slower than I anticipated and it didn’t fully open. To me, no big deal because of the price & it’s a sharp, sturdy knife. Then I saw the Richter30 advertised with an additional 25% off! I clicked the button, then another & the back button & quickly made a huge mess of my bank account! I called the company and the gal was awesome.

You order stuff, and they never ship you the product. I am still waiting for the crossbow that I ordered 6 months ago. Also, their customer service is useless and unhelpful. After 3 months of waiting for my first order, they decided to cancel my order without my permission. Then the company sent me an email to order the same crossbow on November 21st, and now again I still do not have my order, and they can’t tell me when I will receive it.

Foolishly I “bought” a tactical pen on line from this company some three months ago. they duly debited my PayPal account but the item never arrived. To make matters worse the company through their agent CLICKBANK continue to debit my PP account on a monthly basis. This…
I am so sorry that you were charged for a membership that you did not want. We do give our customers a trial to our membership when they order certain items from us and if the trial is not canceled after the 14 day period the membership does charge your account. We do inform our customers of any membership trials on their account when they make the purchase but I do apologize that you were charged unknowingly. We offer the free Credit Card Knives to insure that our customers have something to defend themselves on hand at all times. I assure you that we do not offer this promotion for any other reason. Again, I am so sorry for this mistake. If you could reach out to me at support@survivallife.com using the subject ATTN Brittany I would like to try to make up for this happening. I look forward to speaking with you and I hope you have a great day!
I’ve been waiting almost 30 days now on 4 different orders, about 10 days on another order, and have only recieved 2 orders out of the orders I have placed. They say the items are on back order, but they still send emails every day trying to sell the same items they say are on backorder. I’m completely disappointed in Survival Life; their shipping is downright awful and just a slap to the face. Do they not want your repeated business?

In the great outdoors, the elements increase your chance of obtaining an injury. In case of an open wound, use a section of your bracelet as a tourniquet and strap it on the wrist or leg of the injured person to control severe bleeding.
If you’re ever in a life-and-death survival situation, then securing a source of food is going to be one of your top priorities. You can hunt, sure, and you can gather berries (provided you know how to gather actual edible berries), but nothing is going to keep you going quite like trapping an animal. For that purpose, you can use a paracord snare trap. The trap is easy to learn and as low-budget as low-budget gets, yet it’s surprisingly effective.

Looks great in the photo’s, but it is not what I received. Very disappointing and not as sturdy/durable as expected based on the photos. The photos show (2 of the 3 photos they have on the page) this great stainless steel buckle and heavy stainless steel screw (similar to what I have received on other high dollar Paracord Survival Bracelets) set to hold it firmly in place. The bracelet I received has a cheap nylon plug to hold it together (photo of what I received attached). I assume that will last a couple of weeks and will loosen up from daily outdoor wear and tear or snap off. The photos advertising it are no doubt false and not the product they ship. It’s an absolute shame that a company that markets this worthy cause uses misleading photos to sell their substandard product. I have been on Amazon many, many years and this is the worst item I have received to date based on what was shown versus what I received.

Not only could this prove key for your cooking and drinking needs, it could also prove an essential part of any first aid kit, heating water to sterilise for use in treating injuries. It’s not as expensive as you might think either… A genius survival gadget that could make your day or save your life!
Storage: Batteries are the way most of us think of storing power. But, so is a Gas tank. or a Rural propane tank, a heat sink… (I’ll hit the sink and propane tanks again). Sometimes thinking out of the box can solve a real problem storing power. Storing Electricity used to be a huge one. Today we have very reliable large capacity batteries.
First, let me say that I have never worn a bracelet in my life, but I have worn my Survival Strap every day since they arrived in my mailbox. These straps are not fashion jewelry—they are serious tools. They do, however, look kind of cool. Chances are you have seen these types of paracord wrist straps before; it’s not a new idea. When needed, the strap can be unraveled into a length of useable paracord. The difference with these particular straps is the quality of the materials and the workmanship.

I understand that you’re going to expand the tools listing…may I suggest you research either homesteading sites or sustainability sites because without the tools to plant, harvest, and store their garden produce and the seeds (either saved or in form of a survival seed cache) necessary to replenish their food stores, a lot of people will be in trouble after that first year or two or three on their own passes.

If you do not want to spend the night sleeping on a tree branch, you can make use of your 550 cord to quickly set up a shelter. Gather branches and long leaves and lash them together using a part of your bracelet. Having 15-20 feet of cord will insure that you do not have to worry about the size of your humble abode. You can reclaim the cord when morning comes and you are ready to move on.
Love the kit! Comes with lots of great items that need to be in any survival kit! Good starter kit that you can personalize to fit your own needs. The bag it comes in is a little cheap, IMO. Zippers are a bit difficult to work with, but all in all, I am happy with the purchase!
The Free Credit Card Knife they are currently offering is described as having the size and weight of a credit card and can be unfolded in just a moment. It has a surgical steel blade that is both durable and rust free, as well as a protective hand guard helps you grip and stops the blade from slipping and a built in safety sheath to prevent accidents. 
While water packs can be punctured easily and can be a pain to refill, the Hydrapak Stash collapsible bottle is super durable and comes in sized of up to 1L. It’d be ideal to carry in your backpack just in case something does go wrong with an original water bottle and your left without a source able to carry water.
Many of our products are made in limited quantities by small workshops and factories. We do our best to meet demand, but quality cannot be rushed. Hold tight; there are always good things coming down the line.
Pliers are another one of those survival tools that cannot easily be replaced by other devices. Being able to grip an object with powerful force and pull or twist can be essential but cannot be replicated using your fingers.
Nobody knows when a disaster might strike, but being prepared beforehand can help your survive. Whether it is a natural disaster in your local area, such as a earthquake or hurricane, or a man-made disaster, such as a terrorist attack or fire, you need to have survival kits with the proper emergency supplies. Disasters can force you to evacuate your neighborhood, workplace or school or can confine you to your home. Having the right survival kits, first-aid kits and emergency supplies on hand ahead of time is like having a spare tire in the trunk of your car: You hope not to have a flat tire, but it’s nice to know that a spare tire is there, ready for use, and to keep you going. Emergency preparedness is essential in this day and age.

If you can’t believe in God, one thing is sure – you are given limited time to live on this planet, too little to solve how life and everything were created. You received a chance to live. Are you glad? Do you know how to use your time?
Save Space – Why bring 3 items when you can use 1 do do the same jobs? Consolidating items to save space will free up room in your Bug Out Bag to carry other useful survival tools or more food and water.
There are a lot of portable water filters on the market. A popular brand can do a good job filtering water and withstand long term use, but they can be both clunky and expensive, well over $100, with several parts that need to be fitted together.
As Survival Straps mentions in the owner’s manual, a brand new paracord strap will be quite rigid and stiff at first and will soften up over time with use. With the initial strap rigidity and the shackle style closure, it can be a bit tricky to put on this strap at first.
Binoculars are often overlooked as an essential piece of survival gear. The fact is, you can survive without binoculars, just like early century Native Americans who lived off the land. Key difference though is that they knew the land — there’s a good chance you’re going to end up in a place that you don’t know very well, especially in a mountain range, vast or national forest.
To survive a natural or man made event either at home or away. This could be a hurricane, earthquake, tornado damage, a vehicle break down, even just a snowstorm that makes the roads unpassable. In many places, if there’s some bad weather on the way, the grocery stores get cleaned out.
I’ve had unbearable physical and emotional pain in my life. I lived through a life threatening illness, was bullied as a child, survived divorce and great financial problems. I worked hard to change things and find a solution. I knew things would work out because whenever I took action to get relief something good always came out of it.
The problem with recommending a backpacking tent for survival is that good ones can be expensive; on top of that, tents are built for recreational use — not for long term use should you find yourself in a time of disaster and having to live off the land for possibly several weeks or even months.

They just did the same thing to me. Charged me $39.95 for a membership I did not agree to. It is bull when she says they give you a notice about this. Never got one never agreed to one and do not want one. Have bought several items from them but will no longer purchase anything from them ever again
Tips: Climbing and descending cliffs and slopes can be a very effective way to get yourself out of a dangerous area fast, get yourself passed otherwise impassible obstacles, or even get yourself to prime hunting grounds.

Rather than MRE’s, check out your local LDS/Mormon “Bishop’s Warehouse” for cans & Mylar bags of bulk and dehydrated foods. The cans are designed for 30+ year storage and the Mylar bags are perfect for hiking, camping, and survival. They are a lot cheaper than MRE’s. You can even buy some Mylar bags and make your own “meals in a bag” for even less money.

Very interesting post on this authority blog. But the blog design is very uninspiring and boring looking. I wonder how they manage to do that. They certainly do have a lot of shares for example the blog post that was posted about 5 days ago has over 300 shares which seems to be driving the traffic. But all in all the content they have is very good and impressive.

When you get to a water source, you’ll want to filter it, purify it and put some in a bottle. Because you rarely know how far the next water source is and a water bottle keeps you hydrated between sources.
WITHOUT A DOUBT, MY WOUNDED WARRIORS BRACELET EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS AS FAR AS QUALITY AND COMFORTABILITY. HOWEVER, THE MOST IMPORTANT PART WAS HOW MUCH ATTENTION IT HAS DRAWN TO THE EFFORTS OF THE WOUNDED WARRIORS PROJECT.

I HAVE BEEN AMAZED WITH THE INTEREST THIS BRACELET HAS CREATED AND, HOPEFULLY, ASSISTED WITH MORE SUPPORT FOR THE CAUSE.

For outdoorsman Greg Ticknor, 22, of Helena, Mont., the bracelets provide a convenience. Ticknor used to carry a wad of parachute cord in his pocket “just to have in case I needed it” while hunting or fishing. He saw the bracelets and learned how to make them. Now, Ticknor and his brother, Eli, can carry 12 feet of paracord around their wrists.

Banangrams! I hate playing that game with my (English teacher) daughter! I get stressed out playing games with time limits, or with “experts” who know the game much better than I do. I guess it’s partly my competitiveness and partly post-traumatic stress that I’ve been dealing with. I don’t mind Clue, even though I’m not good at it, but Monopoly is “bad” for me.
It began more than seven years ago with a broken watchband, which Walchle fixed using paracord. The woven band got him some attention in his hometown of Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., so he started making watchbands, then bracelets, and selling them on eBay.
Many generators can be bought to run on Diesel, and LPG, and Propane. While others have yet other flex fuel capabilities. Do your Research. The brand and its capabilities. The typical generator package has a motor, a generator and an electrical panel. The motor can be gas. It can be Diesel… steam etc. The generator part is nearly an electrical that is motor spun. Forgetting the electrical mumbo jumbo and setting it aside. The generator part is not really a high tech part. That said, it is better to get a generator that is designed for just that purpose. (Unless you are an Electrical Engineer of note do not DIY this) The electrical sensors and panel, and parts are where the electrical design engineer gets his say. And earns his pay… or not?

Re: Tradeable Goods. I noticed Phil made the comment about gold being high priced. It seems to me that a significantly large number of people are not aware that gold coins come in sizes as small as 1/10th of an ounce (for about the cost of six silver dollars or so) or maybe they don’t consider a gold chain, the links of which can be taken off one at a time and traded with the right person.
The TIME Magazine Invention of the Year winner uses a microbiological purification filter, and comes at a more than reasonable price as well, so it’s accessible not just for the hardcore camper but for everyone who wants it.
If you’re not already on “team headlamp,” let’s get one thing straight. The headlamp is to an outdoors person as the internet is to shopping. Once you’ve seen firsthand just how easy and effective it is, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it. Headlamps give you light right where your gaze falls, and they leave both hands free to work. Olympia’s Explorer (EX) Series of headlamps has been designed with outdoor junkies in mind: This series gives us lamps with great features that don’t cost a fortune. This tough aluminum body headlamp casts out a scorching 550 lumens, and it’s perfect for chasing down a blood trail after dark, cooking in camp, or working under the hood of your truck. The Cree XM-L LED bulb delivers a beam of light that can reach out 135 meters, and it has five lighting modes, including a distress strobe. It’s even waterproof down to one meter.
Hellava list, Elise! Way too much for my brain to handle. 🙂 The Mora Companion goes with me in the woods as a neck knife and for finer bushcraft tasks. Though it’s not full tang, mine has taken a lot of abuse and keeps performing admirably. I plan on shaving with it in the bush one day.

After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own for several days. Being prepared means having your own food, water and other supplies to last for at least 72 hours. A disaster supplies kit is a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.
Some people call it a Disaster Kit – we call it a Survival Kit because it may be what you need to survive on for a few days. Everyone’s kit will be different – personalize it to meet your family’s needs. Just be sure it has enough supplies to last for at least 72 hours. (Remember to make a much smaller version that fits in a backpack for each vehicle too).

Freeze-dried food may fail you, especially if someone robs you for whatever food you have. A good survivalist will always have a “plan B” for feeding yourself and your family.

Another level in some preparedness plans are Vehicle Kits. In some cases, supplies and equipment may be loaded into vehicle such as a van or truck with bicycle racks and an extra “reserve” gas tank. Some survivalists also carry a small (e.g., 250 cc) off-road-capable motorcycle in the van or truck.
Thank you for this, it’s great. We’re going to be putting together a first aid/medical kit list sometime in the future, and I’ll definitely take that first list into account when we get around to posting that. It’ll be really helpful.
I think having a satellite phone should be on this list. Once you buy one you can purchase emergency minutes that last for two years, then you re-up. The phone will last forever, and it guarantees you can make a call in any situation, and they aren’t as bulky as they once were. There is actually a device no bigger than my wallet that can turn your smart phone into the satellite phone….preparedness matters!!
LED lanterns and headlamps (yes, the dorky ones) are both a better, user friendly source for task lighting. Just try chopping that onion while holding a flashlight.

n Buy your paracord from a reliable source to make sure it’s military-issue — that is, rated to uphold 550 pounds per strand. Cheaper paracord is on the market, but it’s weaker. Duke shops at three online sites: The Supply Captain, Survival-Pax Co. and Armed Forces Outfitters Inc.
In the real world, economic collapse won’t necessarily present itself overnight, and for those who don’t want to live in the woods, being able to transfer large sums of wealth from one country to another is a perfectly viable option. Obviously, for bartering, silver, alcohol, cigarettes, toilet paper, etc. are better options. Gold should just be viewed as a sort of insurance policy for monetary collapse, not for teotwawki.
I prefer the Sawyer Products SP128 Mini Water Filtration System over the lifestraw. It’s rated for 100,000 gallons (provided you backflush it with the included syringe when it needs it) and it can be “hacked” for use as a gravity fed filter. If you’ve ever had to pump a filter for 5 or 6 hydration bladders you’ll REALLY appreciate this ability.
If you’re not already on “team headlamp,” let’s get one thing straight. The headlamp is to an outdoors person as the internet is to shopping. Once you’ve seen firsthand just how easy and effective it is, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it. Headlamps give you light right where your gaze falls, and they leave both hands free to work. Olympia’s Explorer (EX) Series of headlamps has been designed with outdoor junkies in mind: This series gives us lamps with great features that don’t cost a fortune. This tough aluminum body headlamp casts out a scorching 550 lumens, and it’s perfect for chasing down a blood trail after dark, cooking in camp, or working under the hood of your truck. The Cree XM-L LED bulb delivers a beam of light that can reach out 135 meters, and it has five lighting modes, including a distress strobe. It’s even down to one meter.
This survival tool is called Rescue Me Balloon, a small, easy-to-carry emergency survival tool that places an SOS balloon 150 feet above a person in an survival situation and illuminates an SOS signal using an LED light. The rescue me balloon will s
While water packs can be punctured easily and can be a pain to refill, the Hydrapak Stash collapsible bottle is super durable and comes in sized of up to 1L. It’d be ideal to carry in your backpack just in case something does go wrong with an original water bottle and your left without a source able to carry water.
I’ve ordered several items from this company and have got exactly what I was promised. As some others have stated, the products were made in China but are what they promised. I feel I got a fair product for a fair price. I’ll watch for unexpected charges but have not had any so far. I’m happy with this company. And yes I would recommend them to friends. Also, I’ve order the HR30, the spy pen, the fire starter and a flash light and all came in good time and were decent products for what I paid.
I ordered the free knife knowing going in that is was just a lure to get you to buy something else. When I saw the offer for a second free knife, I knew that is was a catch. If you bother to read anything else, it tells you that you are also going to be in their club and there was a monthly fee. I clicked on “no thanks” and got my free knife with no problems, and it is good for what it is.
I highly recommend the Biolite stove as an emergency cooking stove. It does not require anything but natural bio fuel such as pine cones, twigs and sticks. There is a battery that recharges while the fire is burning. This battery charges phones, runs a small light via USB port on device. Very useful if there is no way to charge your devices. There are also attachments that provide camp site lighting also recharged by the stove while burning. It is pricey but works like a charm, weight is very little and has a nice grill attachment for cooking meat or veggies. I don’t work for them just have had great experience with this flexible little stove.

One of the top survival priorities in an emergency is to find and disinfect enough drinking water. Two of my favorite water disinfection tablets are Katadyn’s Micropur tablets, and Potable Aqua’s Iodine tablets. While these two products use different chemicals, they are both more than 99 percent effective against waterborne pathogens. So while they both are highly effective, you should still weigh the pros and cons of each.
I have ordered several items from Survival Life and have gotten them in a reasonable amount of time. I have never been charged for anything, but the items I have ordered and have not been charged a membership fee. I am very happy with all of the items I have ordered from them.
The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that the average homeowner should store at least three to five days of water and three days of food in case of an emergency or natural disaster.

The Echo-Sigma Emergency Roll-Away for Two (ER2) is an all-in-one mobile emergency preparation system.

I received my H.R. Richter multi tool today and was pretty disappointed with the size of the tool, it was no bigger than my index finger. Yhe saw on the end of one of the blades looked as if it was only good for cutting tooth picks, and the blade was only big enough to gut a chipmunk. Sorry but for twenty dollars and five dollars for shipping and handling, I’m pretty disappointed.
Tips: Bring along an extra “stuff sack”, like you’d carry a sleeping bag in, and use it to carry your tarp shelter when it’s time to break camp and move to a new location. Roll up your tarp and then cinch it tight with paracord or rope. Have a few stakes with you to use as ground anchors for your tent.
Large Dry Bags
I agree with you. 90% of the people who think they will survive from any list will be sorely mistaken. They will die. This list or any other list is a reference for people to think about. Without a doubt there are other items people will regret not having. Duplication of item is not wasteful, but resourceful. If something breaks or is lost then you have a backup. A list is just a list. Using the items on a list, repeatedly, will give ‘brain’ muscle memory. You can not go out and buy a gun, and expect to know how to use it if you have never practiced. I have been an avid backpacker for decades; often traveling alone in the back country. I know how to use my equipment very well. I don’t have to ‘think’ about how to use my equipment.
With over 1000 uses combined, this expertly assembled kit is the smartest and most compact survival edc kit of it’s kind. Reduce the fear and anxiety that arise from the uncertainty of being prepared. Keep this kit near you and be confident that you can survive a multitude of situations by having access to simple, high quality tools that have been thoughtfully assembled for you in one compact package.
Love the kit! Comes with lots of great items that need to be in any survival kit! Good starter kit that you can personalize to fit your own needs. The bag it comes in is a little cheap, IMO. Zippers are a bit difficult to work with, but all in all, I am happy with the purchase!
I’m always on a tight budget, so yes, much of my kit is recycled or repurposed. Always remember, you don’t have to go out and buy everything. Adapt, improvise, and overcome. The most beautiful trout I ever caught was caught on a fresh cut bit of bamboo about 4 feet long, dental floss, and improvised wooden fish hook with a beetle tied to it as bait. That beetle put up one hell of a fight. Dental floss is an excellent investment for bugging in or out. Besides the obvious use of dental hygeine, it’s very tough, cheap, compact and lightweight in it’s own little super convenient package, and can be used in any application where a bit of string would serve better than 550 cord/paracord. Can even be used to close wounds in a pinch, multiple strands can be braided together for applications requiring more tensile strength when 550 cord is unavailable, and can be woven into a net. I used some braided strands in Afghanistan as an improvised bootlace to serve my needs until I got back to my patrol base where my spare laces were stowed.
Tip: Worried about dangerous wildlife on the ground? Are you in shape for climbing trees easily? Consider hanging your “Bear Mountain Bridge Hammock” 20 or 30 feet off the ground. You’ll be out of reach of any predators on the forest floor below. Secure rope 2 – 3 feet beneath the hammock, running parallel to the hammock, and use this rope to help you enter and exit your hammock.

After mine softened up a bit and with a little practice, I found it wasn’t much harder than putting on Apple’s Sport Band. One trick that made it easier for me was putting the clevis pin through one side of the shackle, then using one hand to line up the other side while pulling both straps together with the other hand.

Whether or not you plan on bugging out in an emergency SHTF or survival situation, you definitely want to have your important documents and some healthy finances on your side. Tradeable goods are also extremely helpful post-SHTF, which is why they’re on this list. It may be more beneficial to stockpile urban survival gear that will actually be of use to you and those around you in a post-SHTF situation, but in case there’s something you forgot or ran out of, tradeable goods are definitely an asset.

There are a lot of opinions on what works great for a flashlight. It might be wise to have two or three types of artificial light (like a headlamp, for a trail leader) split among your group, and a lantern, for giving a campsite light for a small group. Anyone serious about spending time outdoors should consider carrying at the least a headlamp, which can double as a lantern if hung from a tree branch. A headlamp offer hands-free use and shines a beam of light that can be positioned to point to the ground several feet in front of you, fully illuminating your path of travel. It can also be positioned to shine up and at an angle, if you are climbing a slope or even considering going up into a tree for any reason. Even in the darkest forest or cave, a headlamp will seem like there is light in every direction that you look. It is an essential item for every person’s backpack and even an automobile (changing a tire on the side of the road at night is made easy with a headlamp, allowing you to see with ease).
The thought of something “disastrous” happening scares us all. However, the reality is, there is a chance that each of us could be involved in some kind of disaster or emergency. Services such as water, electric, gas, and telephones may be cut off. In the event of a large disaster, emergency personnel will be too busy helping those in need of immediate medical and rescue attention, and unable to assist you.
Nobody knows when disaster might strike, which is why in the case of an emergency it is so vital for you and your family to be prepared. Our emergency preparedness kits are ideal for any disaster, natural or otherwise, and come equipped with such essentials as water rations, food rations, first-aid supplies, blankets, a flashlight, matches, a whistle, flint, a signal mirror, a storage container, a pocket knife, body warmers and more. Each kit contains 72 hours worth of supplies in a variety of sizes designed for one, two or four people.

The freshly woven, American made Survival Strap was very stiff right out of the package, as most of these bracelets are. But after a brief “breaking in” period, the Strap was as flexible as a normal watchband. The stainless steel shackle has three holes in it, which allows you to adjust the fit. If the bracelet is still too big, you can soak it in water for 5 minutes and then let it dry for one day. Repeat this again on the second day, and the strap should have lost ¼ inch.
Recently, Erika sent in this incredible Survival Story about her firefighter boyfriend and his partner while they were trying to control a house fire. They were in a quite an unpredictable situation and needed to escape fast. She wrote:
The best thing to do when broke is blog about something you are passionate about that you know you can be monetized. It’s cheap to get started, no need to buy content, no need to outsource. You’ll have a much better time staying focused and dedicated to it.
This knife has a 3.5-inch blade crafted from Sandvik 12C27 stainless-steel. The blade sits in a rubberized handle, which contains the hidden fire starter rod. The Swedish FireSteel firestarter is one of the best quality ferrocerium rods on the market. The cascade of 5,400°F sparks is plentiful and easy to strike, making it great for everyday campfire starting and survival purposes alike. Altogether, the knife, spark rod, and sturdy plastic sheath only weigh a little over 4 ounces. They are available in several color choices—I recommend the orange, red or pink color for safety and visibility.
