I Need My Balaclava

Days like today I really appreciate having the right gear. We’re in the middle of another snowstorm and they are predicting the snow won’t stop until after it has dumped sixteen to twenty inches of cold fluffy white stuff in a twenty four hour period.

Traveling is a nightmare and you want to be prepared in case of an emergency. Don’t be caught out in the cold. Always keep a survival kit handy. In yoursurvival gear should be a fire starter, signal mirror and a saber cut saw. These items can help you survive even through your worst days.

Snowboarders rely on Jetboil

When you are cross country skiing or snowboarding what a treat it is to have means to make hot tea or a warm soup to keep you going. Boil water in a flash no matter what the weather is outside. Use the Jetboil personal cooking system to boil water, make tea or any other hot instant meal.

Know your compass

Most of you probably own a compass and have it packed away in your survival backpack or in some type of wilderness kit. Many of you may never have been in the situation where you needed to depend on that compass to help you find your bearings and navigate in the wild. Most of the time when I’m out in the wilderness I’m in familiar territory and I don’t need a compass myself, but once in a while when I’m in an unfamiliar area it can be very helpful to have a compass. Make sure you understand how to use your compass before you venture too far into the woods.

Snugpak now does multicam

Multicam is the single camoflage pattern that helps the wearer hide in various environments. Snugpak is the choice for outdoor enthusiast and is very popular with the troops. Users like the way the sleeping bags roll up and compress into a small bag, easy to carry with your backpack. Snugpak used to manufacture only the black, olive drab and coyote tan colors but now they have added the popular multicam to the list. I’m sure Snugpak will have their work cut out for them keeping up with the demand.
