Ultimate Survival Technologies – Fire Starters

Article By:

Fire is one of the most important tools in a survival situation or even just camping. From fire you keep warm, melt snow and boil water, cook, sterilize, make signals, and much more. Unfortunately starting a fire is not always easy, so why not have some tools that can make it easy. Ultimate Survival Technologies has a large selection of just those tools, along with many other great products.

LiteFighter Systems FIDO-1

Article By:

A good tent that doesn’t weigh a ton and is roomy enough to not feel claustrophobic can be a hard thing to find, especially if you want something designed for military members, by military members. The FIDO-1 fits that bill however, it’s a single person tent that can also be strapped to a cot and is one piece of kit with a ton of utility.

I reviewed the FIDO-1 in a previous edition of Tactical News Magazine which can be read online by clicking the image below. Stay tuned for my review of Litefighter’s other tent, the LiteFighter-1, coming up sometime in the next few months.

Triple Aught Design Titanium Folding Spork

Article By:

Having eaten more rations then anybody should happily consume I have come to several conclusions. The first of these conclusions is that whomever decides that the flavoured gruel within that silvery package is edible is an evil mean spirited person and the second is some meals just can’t be consumed easily with a spoon. I have had various sets of KFS’s (knife, fork and spoon) as well as sporks and most have left me unsatisfied. I have even jokingly brought chopsticks with me to the field on a challenge. Like most Fridays a few years ago I was looking through my Triple Aught Design email blast letting me know what had been released in store that week and saw this little gem. TAD had released a folding titanium spork that seemed to address most of my issues with the eating utensils that I had previously used.

Walkstool Comfort 65

Article By:

When you’re out away from your vehicle it is hard to strap a regular camping chair onto your rucksack and sitting on ammo crates, stumps or the ground can only provide so much comfort. I happened to check out the Walkstool line of folding stools at Mountain Equipment Coop when I was looking for a sleeping pad. The first thing I noticed when I picked it up was how light and compact it was. When I sat on it the deal was done.
