The survival kit is packed with all of the essential supplies for the avid hunter. This bug out bag contains enough supplies to venture out into the wilderness for a weekend hunt away from community resources.
When a hunting excursion goes awry, the last thing anyone wants is to be unprepared. The Guardian survival kit is a set of essential gear prepared by guidelines from government agencies and non-profit preparedness organizations. All of the items in the hunter's deluxe bug out bag are packed into a camouflage backpack with extra space for personal items. An orange pull out flag makes you visible to others, or can be tucked in when trying to stay in cover. The backpack also includes straps that allow hunters to safely secure a gun and go hands-free while traveling or climbing.
Food & Water
When you find yourself cut off from society and supplies, the survival pack holds enough food and water to last out in the elements for 72 hours. Twelve 4oz. water pouches are included to keep you hydrated when access to water is unavailable. Six 400 calorie bars provide enough nutrition to keep the body supplied for days. When water is available but the cleanliness is in question, 10 purification tablets clean and make sure the water is safe to drink. Each tablet can purify up to 1 liter of water. All of the food and water products have a shelf life of 5 years.
Light & Communication
Communication is essential when you're lost in the wilderness and cut off from communicating with others. When the cold, buggy nights settle in, it is important to have access to forms of light and fire. For the dark nights, an included candle can last for 30 hours. The adjustable wick can then be pulled up, lit, and used as a mini stove. A box of waterproof matches will light the 30 hour candle and also help start fires for a source of warmth. An included glow stick lasts for 12 hours and has a shelf life of 3 – 5 years. A Dynamo 4-in-1 radio has an AM/FM receiver, a siren, a cell phone charger, and a flashlight. Three LED lights are charged by a hand crank that generate up to 30 minutes with just one minute of winding. Winding the flashlight/radio for 3 minutes gives a cell phone enough of a charge for a call to last 2 – 8 minutes when reception is available.
Shelter & Warmth
A source of shelter is important when protecting yourself from wind, sun, rain, or any other element Mother Nature is responsible for. An emergency sleeping bag traps in body heat, keeping an even, comfortable temperature all through the night. The waterproof bags block the wind and retain 90% of the body heat that is emitted. A body warmer generates its own heat and stays warm for up to 16 hours at an average of 130 degrees. The body warmer is placed inside the sleeping bag or within the layers of clothing (Do not apply directly to the skin). A hooded poncho keeps the body and hair dry during torrential downpours. One size fits all.
The tools included in the camo backpack are designed to protect during and after natural disasters. When dust or ash fill the air from natural disasters such as forest fires, a N95 NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) dust mask helps breathing when clean air isn't readily available. A 50 ft. piece of rope will help in situations when climbing or repelling is need to scale steep terrain. One of the most useful tools for survival are multi-functional knife kits. The 16 function knife includes a can opener, cork screw, reamer, manicure blade, sturdy reamer, Phillips screwdriver, hook disgorger, flathead screwdriver, key ring, toothpick, fish scaler, tweezers, wood/rope saw, scissors, cutting blade, and a cap lifter. If any place or source of food needs to be accessed, a 16 function knife is the sure way to get to it.
When clothing or supplies get ripped in the thick brush, a roll of duct tape is quick way to patch up the holes. A 5' x 7' blue tarp makes for a quick lean-to shelter that blocks rain, wind, and other elements. An infectious waste bag offers a place to discard human or material waste that give off a scent that may scare away wild game.
The compact shovel has a variety of features that offer assistance in times away from readily available resources. The lightweight shovel includes a nail puller, a hatchet edge, saw edge, hammer, 3 size wrench, and a bottle opener. At the handle base is a water-filled compass that can be unscrewed to reveal a waterproof storage container. The built in container includes a box of matches, 2 nails, a sharp razor blade, fishing line, bobbers, and hooks. With all of features within the compact shovel, the shovel proves to be useful when it's time to dig a make-shift latrine, ground/pit blind (where legal), or form of shelter. The compact shovel alone is a tool that could get you through isolation for weeks. All of the tools are encased in a resealable, waterproof storage bag.
Hygiene & Sanitation
Cleanliness is very important as it can be a way to ward off infection or disease. The 24 piece set includes a toothbrush, toothpaste, nine wet naps, a bar of soap, .34 oz of shampoo and conditioner, a dental floss pick, .25 oz of hand and body lotion, deodorant gel, a twin blade razor, a 5" comb, four maxi-pads, a shaving cream packet, and a washcloth. A 65 piece first aid kit includes items such as antibacterial soap, alcohol and gauze pads, and ointments that are meant to treat minor cuts and burns.
During downtime when boredom kicks in, recreational activities can be a remedy. A deck of playing cards and a golf pencil are included to help pass the time.
