Going outdoors for the first time this weekend and you don’t know how to prep up everything? In this article we got you covered.
No matter how you have prepared everything before you have packed up your things and taking some adventure, you will never know what danger lies ahead. So, you have to be extra prepared for anything that might happen. Going outdoors might also mean detaching yourselves from technology, some even make it as a number rule; however, we beg to differ, for sometimes we have to have that gadget that we might badly need.
With this, we thought we’d bring you a list of some of the best survival gadgets to help you get by in the wilderness, especially when you are alone. Here are the five gadgets you would like to bring:
Suunto Traverse Alpha Watch
The Suunto company has been making some of the best outdoor watches in the market. They have built a strong reputation by delivering advanced and accurate features for extreme outdoor adventures. One of the features that make this gadget stand out is its unique shot detection capability. This is specially created to accompany you on your hunting trips.
This Suunto watch won’t fail to surprise you, for they have also attached a small emergency flashlight in it. This could help you signal for a rescue. There’s also a Traverse You tool attached to this that can set POI locations, mark trails, and follow your path back to wherever you started with this GPS watch.
LifeStraw Personal Water Filter
LifeStraw is one of the far-fetched inventions that lets you drink directly from puddles or streams without any of the risks of getting poisoned or unwanted bacteria. Time Magazine even awarded this small but incredible tool as the Invention of the year winner. For this, LifeStraw uses a microbiological purification filter, accessible for everyone who wants it, and comes with a reasonable price. We don’t know this could be one of your “glad I have it” tools while you’re hiking or in survival mode with no longer water in the bottle.
Swedish Army Firesteel
This Swedish Army Firesteel may have a size like a key but it is so powerful that it can create 12,000 strikes of fire and spark 3,000 degrees Celsius instantly. This tool is approved by the International Survival Instructors Association, so it is guaranteed safe to bring and use whenever there’s a need for it. This comes in handy especially when you are stranded alone or you need fire to create warmth for the whole team while thinking of strategies to survive.
Power Plus Barracuda LED Solar Wind-Up Torch
This wind-up torch is an essential survival gadget in every survival situation you are in. This life-saving flashlight gives you an hour of light with all three LEDs or 80 minutes with just one, 110 minutes of flashing. This is also rainproof and windproofs up to an impressive 45 feet. You can also charge this through sunlight and bring up to 120 minutes of light.
This SunRocket Sunlight gives you the power to boil water using only the heat of the sun. This gadget is one of the most valuable things you need to have, but you didn’t know needed, not until you are in a situation. This item could also prove an essential part of any first aid kit, heating water to sterilise for use in treating injuries. And you may be able to have that clean water you need.
