Best Doomsday Prepping Gear
With the elections upon us, everyone is waiting with baited breath to see which candidate will win the presidency. Although Donald Trump started out as the underdog, he has quickly risen to the top of the presidential election. If you need a survival kit for when society inevitably breaks down after Donald Trump is president, look no further than the Cards Against Humanity Donald Trump Bug Out Bag! This survival kit comes equipped with everything that you will need once society collapses. It contains everything from a fire starter and gas mask to food rations. Although the election is still a couple of months away, it is never too early to start stocking up.
In today’s day and age, losing power means losing access to your cell phone once your battery dies. When you are out by yourself in the woods, your cell phone may be the only means of communication that you have with the outside world. By having access to a phone, you can look up live weather reports or get into contact with family if you need emergency assistance.
The iRonsnow IS-088 made the list, because it is a compact survival kit beast. It is hand cranked, and offers the following features:
● AM/FM NOAA Weather Radio
● 3 LED Flashlight
● Cell Phone Charger
● Lightweight at less than 0.5 pounds
If you are in need of a light and easy to carry charger, make sure to add the iRonsnow IS-088 to your survival gear before your next camping trip!
Any basic survival kit needs to include the proper tools to perform first aid. Although you may hope that you never need it, it is better to be over prepared than underprepared. Unfortunately when you are camping, especially if you are hiking in for the night, you have to be extremely vigilant about the weight of your pack. Sleeping bags, emergency chargers, flashlights, and rations add up fast. For this reason the incredibly lightweight and compact First Aid Kit for Emergency and Survival made the list!
The First Aid Kit for Emergency and Survival has 115 pieces of much needed medical equipment. The entire kit comes in at a whopping 1.1 pounds and is made out of 600D canvas, which will pretty much withstand anything that the outdoors throws at it. If that is not enough to send you running to the store, the First Aid Kit for Emergency and Survival also comes with a five year warranty.
Being able to start a fire is an essential part of camping outdoors, and it can be harder than you think! Depending on where you go camping, you may not even have access to tinder. In some environments, such as deserts, it may take you all day to find enough kindling to get a decent fire going. The Survival Spark Magnesium Fire Starter is a much needed item to have in your survival kit if you will be doing any kind of overnight camping.
The Survival Spark Magnesium Fire Starter kit comes with the following items:
● Magnesium Firestarter Rod
● Large Striker
● 150 DB Whistle
Unless you want to wind up cold in the woods, pick up the Fire Starter kit before your next camping trip!
Backpacking in clean drinking water is an issue that many outdoorsmen face. You cannot trust the cleanliness of river or lake water, and humping water to your campsite gets tiring. The LifeStraw Family 1.0 Water Purifier solves this issue by being able to purify between 9 – 12 liters of water per hour!
The Water Purifier weighs approximately 1 pound which is miniscule compared to the weight of carrying in drinking water. The unit does not require running water, electricity, or batteries to run which makes it a much needed item in your survival kit.
The weather, especially in the summertime, can be unpredictable. Sometimes a storm will brew up while you are out in the wilderness with no place to take cover. The UCO Stormproof Matches are well worth their weight in gold, because they take away the worry that comes with a downpour.
The UCO Stormproof Matches will burn up for 15 seconds each, and will relight after being submerged in water. In addition, the waterproof case that the matches come in makes this one survival kit item that you do not want to pass up.
Not everyone roughs it like the Amish when they go camping. Many outdoorsmen like to have access to their electronics when they’re out in the wilderness. However, the issue that everyone runs into is charging their devices. The K-tor Power Box 20 Watt solves this problem by being a light weight, emergency generator.
The K-tor Power Box 20 Watt is charged by pedaling. This is the same motion you would use while riding a stationary bike. You may look silly pedaling your emergency generator, but who is going to see you out in the woods! You definitely need to pick this generator up if you have any electronic devices that you need to charge while you are out camping.
When something is American made, that typically means that is a quality item. The All American Sun Oven Dehydrating kit is a must have item in any survival kit, because it is made locally in the good ol’ United States of America.
When you are out camping for longer periods of time, food can be hard to come by. You are not able to refrigerate food in the wilderness which makes it hard to store larger amounts of food. With the All American Sun Oven Dehydrating kit, you are able to preserve your food for long periods of time. No more having to wonder what you will be eating for dinner tomorrow!
