The Bright Force LED Flashlight is another good option for wilderness survival, especially for weight weary backpackers. It is a LED survival light at 140 lumens in a tiny and thin flashlight casing. UST rates the Bright Force LED bulb as unbreakable, and perhaps even the housing is as well, as it is made from a tough anodized aircraft-grade aluminum with a non-slip silicone sleeve. The flashlight offers three lighting features; high, low and SOS flashing which can last up to six hours. When on high power, the flashlight is rated to last about three hours, and on low, ten hours. Having a quick and handy flashlight is another important survival decision, because it’s small enough to fit in your pocket, yet strong enough to help you find your way at night.
The Waterproof Notebook is a something new to me. And as a writer, I find it way more exciting than likely the most of the world. But to be honest, a waterproof notebook can be a huge help when it comes to surviving in the wilderness. You can forget about soggy pages and bleeding ink, which is helpful for even basic entertainment during tough situations, or more obviously, leaving traces to your whereabouts. Now, you can send a message without the bottle, if you know what I mean.
The Safe & Dry Bag is a necessity for every backpacker and wilderness camper, because without a dry storage bag, you can easily lose your most important gadgets and personal information. A proper dry bag like UST’s will save your phone or GPS, or identifications from being ruined by the elements. The Safe & Dry bag holds 25L and has a rolling neck that secures the compartment inside from water and the other elements.
The Tool A Long Moose is a pocket-sized multi-tool shaped like a moose head with antlers. Wild, right? It’s a really cool metal keychain that gives the user a flathead screwdriver, butterfly wrench, phillips head, cord cutter, a bottle opener and three hex wrenches. The Tool A Long is a thick piece of metal, shaped perfectly with solutions for a lot of the most common tool needs.
