Don't go hiking without this Hiking Survival Kit!

June 1st, 2008 · No Comments ·

Now that summer’s here, you may be planning a hiking trip. You’ve no doubt heard horrific stories in the past year in the news of people who have gone on trips to remote locations, but unexpectedly found themselves in harrowing situations. Here’s a kit that may be a life saver–literally.

The Adventure Medical Kits Pocket Survival Pak is a personal survival kit that contains an amazing amount of things that are essential for any hiking trip, short or long.

It contains:

  • An extremely loud whistle for calling for help, ultra light but triple the volume of ordinary whistles.
  • A signal mirror, visible for over 20 miles.
  • A compass.
  • A waterproof, official firestarter.
  • Tinder-Quick for kindling a fire easily.
  • Duct tape. Great for improvising in a pinch.
  • Scalpel blade. Sharper than a razor blade.
  • Utility wire.
  • Nylon thread.
  • Nylon cord.
  • Lens magnifier for reading if you lose your glasses or for starting a fire.
  • Fish hooks, sinkers, and snap swivel for fishing if you run out of food.
  • Aluminum foil for making containers for boiling water or reflecting sunlight.
  • Safety pins for repairs or securing gear.
  • Pencil and waterproof note paper.
  • Survival instructions with detailed, easy to understand, practical information on: setting a plan of action, building shelter, starting fires, obtaining water and food; distress signaling; travel; and how to use the items in this kit to save your life.  Includes 33 illustrations!

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this kit supports the Equipped To Survive Foundation (
