30 Under $30! Great Survival Gear On The Cheap!
Unless you’re Rambo with a knife only, you need multiple tools for our trade. And, whether you’re a seasoned pro or a complete novice (welcome!) it never hurts to look at good options. That is what we have, here, today. These are items you’ll find useful and which will not break the bank to obtain.
Today’s breakdown presentation was made possible by the great work of DropForgedSurvival on YouTube. Thirty items are a few too many to play my usual cruel trick at the end of the list: you’ll have to watch for many of these, not just one or two. But, I will list them out for you, if you’re making a list – which you should.
All pictures herein from DFS video.
Feelle Solar Power Bank
Three solar panels in a convenient folding package: it’s water-proof, extremely portable, powerful, and even comes with a built-in flashlight. Find two standard USB ports and one mini for all your charging needs on the go.
Keep the juice flowing Charge!
Wells Lamont Work Gloves
4DB 550 BLAZE Cordage
Corona Razor Tooth Folding Saw
Fiskars X7 Hand Axe
It’s a hand axe, or hatchet, or camp ax – take your pick! And take this one, from Fiskars, along for any chopping tasks on the trail. This is a brand you may know (and should trust) for all kinds of rugged tools. Lightweight and priced to please, this is the hacking blade for any outdoor job.
Consider it a … sharp pick.
Mobile Butane Camping Stove
As the packaging suggests, it’s professional and ideal for all outdoor cooking needs. This one is from Sterno, a name you can trust, but others are available, cheap, from brands like Coleman. Take the civility of the kitchen to your retreat, hunting property, or anywhere else.
Butane fuel not included. Come to think of it, you’ll have to supply the food too. Sorry. But,
Here Are Some More:
Cabuya Hand Fishing Line
CAS Hanwei Multi-tool
4DB Quadratum FireSteel
4MONSTER MicroFiber Towel
Cold Steel PocketBushman
New Titanium Grill Camping Plate
Ratchet Rocket Tool
Leatherman Squirt PS4
Schrade SCAXE10 & Machete Combo
Gear Aid Kotu Field Knife
Vanquest Molle Sticks
Gerber Dime Multi-tool
I’ll level with you: this item pictured is not a Gerber. Nor is it a Leatherman. But, for $13, what’s the difference?! Online or in better stores (even lesser stores) one can find a wide variety of little hand tools that pack a big functional punch. The pliers are on display here, but inside the handle, there’s much more. Rest assured, you’ll have blades, openers, drivers, and more to tackle any project or emergency.
While you’re at it, I recommend buying multiple multi-tools. Keep them everywhere so they’re handy when needed. The best part about the value models is that you can get more (of them) for the money of one high-end tool. If they’re only used periodically, even the cheapies will last for decades.
HydroBlu Clear Flow
Water, as you may have heard, is essential for life. Luckily for us, the whole planet is literally covered with H20. Unfortunately, much of it, or most of it, is undrinkable as-is. Nothing will slow you down like a pathogen-borne illness from dirty water. Thus, filtering is critical.
This little gem of a bottle allows for fast filtering and ready storage for drinking later – like any ordinary sports bottle. Best of all, unlike the luxury brands, this one is budget-friendly.
Roaring Fire Gear 45L Pack
Roaring Fire Gear Sling Bag
Bushcraft Grill Stainless
Bushcraft Grill Titanium
4MONSTER Hiking Daypack
Fiber Light Fire Starter
It’s a … hot commodity…
Fire is our friend. If you need to strike a fire in a hurry, then look no further than this little pack. Just open it up, spread out the contents as directed, and strike it with a fire steel or flint (or lighter). This one is formulated to burn even when soaking wet – a life-saver on a rainy day’s hike.
Buy several and keep them handy – in your BOB, at the retreat, and in your backpack! But, save room for,
MY COLD STEEL XL Espada
Prep Right Survival Food tabs COCO
Prep Right Survival Food Tabs Strawberry
Prep Right Survival Big Food Tabs
Pick a flavor and store it away for an emergency. This isn’t a full mean or even an MRE. But it may be just enough to give you the needed energy to make it those last few miles to safety. I’d recommend buying some for every member of the crew and keeping these “prepper vitamins” in the go-bag for those just in case treks.
You can’t live on food like this for long. However, they can buy you the chance needed to gather your hungry wits, find some real food in the wild, or just make it to the cabin.
That’s quite the preview of quite the list.
