The Swiss gel fuel stove is perfect for bugging out or bugging in. When you have lost power and utility services due to inclement weather you can still boil water and heat up food. It is extremely compact and takes up barely any room so it is easily packed in your bug-out-bag or camping equipment. If you have a cache storage of survival gear, these stack up nicely in a pantry without taking up much space. You can reuse them if you don’t use up all the fuel the first time. Just simply snuff out the flame with the stove’s lid. It includes matches and a reuseable burner. The Swiss stove is made of aluminum and the fuel will burn up to eight hours. This Swiss gel fuel stove is so affordable, easy and convenient to use that it is worth getting more than one.

Camo Duct Tape
No bug-out-bag, car, truck, boat, camping equipment, shed, or toolbox should be without duct tape. Allen, a trusted hunting supplies and gun case company, makes this camo duct tape. It comes in a 20-yard roll. Duct tape is necessary for quick fixes. In fact, the astronauts on Apollo 13 used duct tape for an emergency fix and duct tape was also used in the Vietnam War to fix helicopter rotor blades. The water-resistant tape was developed in 1942 and has been keeping things stuck together ever since.
