I’ve been lost in the woods before and I can tell you that it’s a very jarring experience. Thankfully, I was able to call on my experience in the Boy Scouts of America to find my way out in the middle of a thunderstorm. I don’t want anyone to ever find themselves feeling as vulnerable as I did. If you are ever lost in the woods the things you need the most are water, fire, and shelter. Your body will need water to stay alive, but you’ll need fire to boil that water or risk contracting nasty parasites. Fire is also what you’ll use to ward away insects and cook in the woods. Buy Here
This pocket survival kit comes with the most comprehensive fire starting kit I’ve ever seen. It features matches and a bag of wood chips. There is a Ferro Rod which will shower sparks up to 1,000 times before needing to be replaced. The kit also features strike anywhere matches, some of the most useful survival tools ever invented. There’s a piece of jute which can be used to transfer fire from the matches/wood chips to the larger wood blocks used to build a fire. Lastly, this pocket survival kit features a small pocketknife. To say that this survival kit is comprehensive would be an understatement.
