Five Essential Survival Items the Experts Use

When considering what survival gear to purchase, you must feel confident the products are going to work reliably. A $30, or even a $5, small pocketknife is fine for EDC, but when your life depends on it, you don’t want to end up holding on to nothing but a broken knife and broken hopes.

10 Survival Essentials

Lost, primitive hiking and camping, natural disasters, crash-landed, broke-down car far from civilization—any time there is potential for you to have to spend any time in the elements unexpectedly,

What’s In Your Water?

Two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen—these three tiny particles make up one of the most vital pieces of our human existence. And while hydrogen and oxygen form water at its most molecular state, hundreds of invaders find their way into our water sources every day. “Cleaning up” water and making it safe to ingest is an extremely important task in making sure that we have potable water we need to survive.

Potable water is a top priority during a natural disaster, survival situation or when traveling overseas. As campers, hikers, explorers, hunters and survivalists, we know how important it is to have a back-up water supply for when clean, drinkable water is not available.

You can gather water through condensation.

Purifying Water on the Fly: Safe Drinking Water in an Emergency

Anytime you venture out into the great outdoors, you should pack a few essential items that can make the difference between life and death. Even if you plan just a short trip, you need a way to start a fire and purify water for safe drinking. Even in the easiest of terrain, the most experienced outdoor adventurer can become lost or injured. A one-liter water bottle won’t last 24 hours, if you get stranded.

Dual Ceramic Water Filter Bag

The Just Water For You High Country filtering water bag can filter up to 10 gallons of water per hour. It is perfect for camping, natural disasters, survival, or your bug-out-bag. It rolls up into a compact size and only weighs about two pounds.

The ceramic filter used in the High Country was developed to be the simplest water filter in the market and it is so easy to use; no complicated instructions involved!

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has tested the filter and found that it is very successful in filtering out bacteria from any water source.
I like Just Water for You (JWT) because they donate a small portion of each purchase to humanitarian causes all over the world.

BLACKHAWK! American Flag Patch

I came across a comment the other day from a customer saying he wished we sold these American flag patches. I pointed him in the right direction to where they are on our site, “Gifts and Everything Else.” Did you know we had that category? If not, I highly suggest you browse there. We have some fun things in that category.

This particular American flag patch, made by Blackhawk Products, has a Velcro back, so it will hook onto your cap or MOLLE vest. It is black and tan and measures 2×3 inches.

So you’re not a Navy Seal, but sometimes like to pretend? Instead of paying over $2,000 for a SCAR, you could get the ISSC MK22 Sport semi automatic rifle in .22 Long Rifle with a FDE finish. The basic features of the ISSC MK22 Sport are a 16” barrel, a 22-round capacity magazine, synthetic stock, and weighs 7.49 pounds. It has metal parts, and feels like a centerfire rifle, but is not as expensive to shoot.

Robert Farago from says, “If you worship at the altar of tacticool, the MK22 is all that and a bunch of bullets besides.”

Here is another product listed under “Gifts and Everything Else.” Tactical bacon. Yep. That’s right. Tactical bacon. CTD Martin brought some back for us from SHOT Show 2010, so we got a sneak peak of it. We actually popped it in the microwave before eating and sure enough, tastes like bacon!

I have a feeling it makes perfect zombie bait.

CMMG Tac Bac is fully cooked and ready to eat. It has a ten plus year shelf life, and comes in nine ounce cans. We sell it by the 12-can case.

Everything tastes better with bacon. Get ya some!

Water Purification

The EPA reports that 90% of the world’s fresh water supply is contaminated. According to the World Health Organization, 80% of all travel diseases are caused from contaminated water. Tap water, surface water (surface water is any standing or flowing body of water.), ice cubes and even bottled water can all harbor unsafe bacteria, viruses, protozoans and agricultural chemicals. By consuming even the smallest drop of contaminated water, you can get Hepatitis A, E-coli, salmonella, cholera and many other diseases and sicknesses. Most water contaminates come from human and animal waste. They are spread by rain and run-off in surface water.
