Gear: The Deluxe Survival Kit
Emergency gear for remote travel
The Deluxe Survival Kit is a lightweight emergency kit suitable for 4WDers and offroad enthusiasts who enjoy camping alone.
The survival kit weighs less than half a kilogram (including the hard storage case), has a BlastMatch Fire Starter for sparks three times hotter than a standard match, and non-toxic, odourless WetFire Tinder which lights in the rain, burning longer when it’s wet.
The hard-wearing StarFlash Signal Mirror, which shines to 160km and a JetScream Whistle that emits a 122Db ear-piercing shriek help communicate with search and rescue teams, should you get lost.
Our favourite item, however, would have to be the SaberCut saw: a hand-operated chainsaw which cuts and clears in both directions.
The Deluxe Survival Kit by Ultimate Survival Technologies retails for $149. For more your nearest stockist, contact Zen Imports on 1800 064 200 or visit www.zenimports.com.au
