Over the years, I’ve purchased different survival kits and most of them were made with cheap items that wouldn’t last through the duration of an emergency. In fact, one kit I purchased had a “survival knife” that was so dull it wouldn’t cut through a sheet of paper. What am I supposed to do with this is an emergency?
I know that many of you have made this prepper mistake.
In an emergency, when you are only left with your tools to survive, you want them to be dependable.
With that in mind, the folks over at Global Tactical Gear created a survival kit only using “high-quality, reliable gear for emergency preparedness and survival situations,” and I have to say I’m impressed.
Everything you need in an emergency
When I opened the package I was immediately pleased with the water-resistant case the kit came in and the attention to detail in every item. All items in the kit are good quality and can serve multiple purposes in an emergency. For example, the survival pen not only writes, but can also be used to break glass if you need to escape from a car, and the saber card has a can opener, bottle opener, 4 and 2-position wrench, butterfly, and direction ancillary wrench, screwdriver, knife edge, saw blade, and ruler. And that’s just one item!
As well, I love the size of this kit. It is small enough to fit in a glove compartment of a vehicle, a bug out bag or even in a medium to large size purse.
Here’s what is inside:
3.5″ Survival Knife with Seat Belt Cutter
Large Ferro Flint & Steel Fire Starter
Emergency Thermal Blanket
350 Lumen Flashlight (all metal)
Multi-Function Saber Card
Aluminum Alloy Whistle with 120db
Shockproof and Water-Resistant Case
How-To User Guide eBook
“10 Tips for Wilderness Survival” eBook
If this kit isn’t enough, they also include a FREE survival eBook that you can download. Hands down, this is the best survival kit I have seen and will be purchasing another for my vehicle. Another plus is the regular price is $27.99 – which is very affordable!
The only suggestion I would make to this kit would be to add some iodine tablets for water purification and some paracord but this could easily be added to the kit after purchasing.
