First Time?

All the below links are from I personally carry or have used all the gear I have listed on this page. These are some of the items I recommend for emergency/disaster kits and outdoor expeditions.

Please note if you purchase any item through the direct link on this page, I get a very small percentage of the sale. I greatly appreciate this and you can consider it "a tip" for all the free information I put out through my work. If you are purchasing multiple items from this page, please come back to this page and click on the new item, add it to your cart and repeat. If you are logged into amazon, even if it opens up a new page each time, all the items should be in your cart. Thank you for helping support my work, I GREATLY appreciate it!

Please also note I have nothing to do with the actual sale. It is up to you to check the seller reviews as you would with any other Amazon purchase. I am not responsible if any issues arise with the seller or item. Also, I can not guarantee these are the best prices you will find. I encourage you to check other sources to see if you can get any of the items for cheaper elsewhere. With that said, most of the prices I see here are pretty on par with what these items would cost in a store.
