Cook and Boil Water Simultaneously with the Kelly Kettle Basecamp Outdoor Stove

The Kelly Kettle Basecamp Outdoor Stove is the complete package. I’ve reviewed several outdoor stoves and none of them can boil water and cook at the same time. While this isn’t as compact as other fold-down pocket stoves it’s way more versatile and can cook food and boil water much faster than anything I’ve seen. The large Kelly Kettle will hold 1.6L of water, which is the one I’m reviewing today, although they do offer different sizes.

Sea to Summit Nylon Tarp Poncho

Exposure to the elements in mother nature is the biggest concern if you are bugging out in the wilderness or possibly trying to get to your bug out location on foot. The last thing you want to punch your clock is hypothermia especially when it’s usually something you can take measures to prevent with a few preps. Protective gear such as clothing and shelter will help keep your core temperature up and keep you dry, which is a main key in surviving cold temps. The Sea to Summit Nylon Tarp Poncho serves a dual use piece of gear acting as a poncho and a full blown tarp for two people.

Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil View Dry Sack

This is a product that most preppers wouldn’t think of packing away in their bug out bags. While dry sacks are used a lot by adventurers on water or through canyons, they can be of great value to preppers especially if bugging out is in your plans. Keeping your clothes and electronic equipment dry is a huge deal if you’re on the go. Not all backpacks come weatherproofed so it’s important that you have a solution in place to handle the chance you get caught in a down pour or have to cross a body of water. The Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil View Dry Sack comes in everything from 1 liter to 35 liters in size and is a perfect, durable solution.

Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Day Pack

If you’re not familiar with Sea to Summit, their focus is on making affordable but quality outdoor gear even in the simplest products such as the Ultra-Sil Day Pack. While this isn’t a rugged pack by any means, it’s a great addition to your bug out bag if you go out on a small excursion away from camp. It packs down so small it can be easily placed inside your pocket, a woman’s purse or even on your keychain. It’s cool design allows the entire bag to be reduced inside a tiny built-in pocket.

Get a Grip with the Farson Hatchet from Fremont Knives

You may have seen my earlier review of the Farson Blade by Fremont Knives. It’s the ultimate tool for skinning game and can be fashioned into a makeshift hatchet using the 8 feet of paracord. Fremont Knives just took the Farson Blade to another level and created the Farson Hatchet with a solid handle so you can choke up on the tool to get some real work done. Made from 1095 carbon steel, this tool will certainly pass the longevity test. The blade is coated in Titanium Nitride to increase durability.

Throw in a solar built-in solar panel and you have a nice rechargeable battery-powered LED emergency light – the MPOWERD Luci EMRG Solar Lantern. MPOWERD has created a nice compact LED emergency light that deflates for storage and inflates for nice ambient lighting.

Bug Out in the Trees with the Tentsile Connect Tree Tent

This is a product like I’ve never seen before and it’s a great addition to your prepping gear. Shelter is a primary concern especially for those that have a bug out plan in mind. While you can construct basic shelters in the wilderness, during an emergency you can expend valuable time and energy on creating a habitat from scratch. You can eliminate that necessity and get your shelter off the ground with the Tentsile Connect.

SunJack 14W Solar Charger

Charge Your USB Devices with the SunJack 14W Portable Solar Charger

This is my second product that I’ve reviewed for SunJack. The first was the SunJack Waterproof LightStick. This time they kindly sent me the SunJack 14W Portable Solar Charger with the 8000mAh battery. With so many USB powered devices floating around these days, there’s definitely a market for keeping something handy nearby if you need a quick charge. If you use your cell phones, GPS devices or even your GoPro you know how quickly those batteries get depleted. It’s more of a hassle if you’re not near your car – for example, hiking or hunting. Even more importantly it can be a real help to charge or even run a walkie talkie if the batteries are wasted in a SHTF scenario.

Filter Water Fast with the Survivor Filter Pro

You may have already seen my review of the Survivor Filter straw earlier this year. The Survivor Filter Pro is the larger of the two allowing you to filter much more water in a shorter amount of time using a hand pump. It’s a great addition for a long term bug out bag where you need a larger quantity of water produced quickly.
