For a long time, finding fresh drinking water out in the wilderness was a chore — you either had to bring along purification packets, or else boil what water you could find and then wait on it to cool before drinking it. Not anymore. With the Lifestraw Go, all you need to do is scoop up some water from a river, stream, or pond, screw on the lid, and drink. Since the bottle incorporates the company's award-winning technology, it removes 99.9999% of bacteria and nearly all waterborne parasites, and is good for up to 1,000 liters of water — or far more than you'll be drinking on a single hike.
Head into the unknown fully equipped with the Nax 2.0 by your side. Designed in collaboration with special forces soldiers, preppers, and survival gear aficionados, this multi-tool for the forest/jungle combines the features of a kukri knife, machete, and hatchet into one easy-to-carry tool. Featuring a professional, zero ground edge, it's made from 4130 chromoly steel that's heat-treated to +48 HRC hardness, and also boasts a pommel with a pry and bottle opener, a built-in gas shut-off wrench, and a handle wrapped in 550 paracord — so you'll have a secure grip no matter what you're doing.
Traditional bike lights solve several problems — they let you see where you're going, and they let other people see you. But they won't stop a driver from turning into you if you happen to be in their blind spot. The Blaze Bike Laserlight will. This ingenious add-on serves as a traditional front-facing lamp, but also includes a green laser light that projects the image of a bike on the road roughly 15 feet in front of you, letting motorists know you're coming before you're even there. The internal Li-ion battery lasts for up to 13 hours, and the body is waterproof, so the only thing you really need to worry about is pedaling.
If you haven't yet started preparing for a potential breakdown of society, don't worry — the Wolfram Survival Cabinet gives even the laziest among us a one-step way to go from woefully unprepared to ready for anything. The cabinet itself is double steel-walled, made in the USA, features dual locks, and comes in a handsome orange. But it's what's inside that's the real draw: over 170 items carefully selected to keep you safe and alive should all hell break loose. From water, food, and first-aid materials to tools, sanitation, and shelter needs, it's got your covered.
With a design that originated in north-central France in the 1950s, the Baladeo Le Retro Knife offers a great mix of style and utility. Two blades, a saw, a can opener, a punch, a corkscrew, a piercing tool, and, of course, a bottle opener are all available inside its stainless steel body, which is finished off with a true blonde horn handle. It's not the most versatile multifunction knife we've ever seen, but it also won't leave you looking like you're geared up for an adventure when all you're doing is heading to the local coffee shop.
Forget about strapping chains to your wheels, buying snow tires, or filling the bed of your truck with sandbags — no, what you really need this winter is Track N Go.

In as little as 15 minutes, you're ready to go, tackling the toughest winter conditions imaginable. Power comes directly from the wheels on your truck, easily driving the track system without impacting handling and turning.
Replace at least four grip-based tools with a single Crescent Switchblade Cutter. This handy tool uses a compound action design to deliver maximum leverage with minimum effort, and includes four separate blades: a straight cutting blade for ducting and siding, a cable cutting blade for wires and such, a standard plier head with its own wire cutter, and a multi-purpose blade that can cut rope, shingles, vinyl, and plastics, cut and bend wire, and, because no tool is complete without it, open bottles. Just throw it in the included holster and get to work.

Yes, it's technically billed as "the world's first one-wheeled self balancing electric skateboard." But the fact of the matter is that the Onewheel isn't really a skateboard at all — it's a whole new experience. Powered by state-of-the-art batteries and a new type of brushless hub motor, it uses a host of sensors to allow you to move up to 12 mph, over a range of 4-6 miles, by doing nothing more than hopping aboard, leaning forward to accelerate, and leaning backward to slow down and stop. All of which sounds much easier than kicking the ground/bailing into the grass.
Traditional snowshoes are large. Like, really large — large enough to make you leave them at home or at your camp unless you're 100% sure you'll need them. With Small Foot Inflatable Snowshoes, you can keep them with you any time there's snow in the forecast or on the ground. Since they're inflatable, they collapse down into easy-to-carry bags when not in use, and weigh just under a kilo. In addition, they're designed to allow your boot to make solid contact with the surface beneath you, providing excellent traction with all the benefits of a floating support.
Your bike doesn't need to be armed with grappling hooks, armor-piercing cannons, and machine guns to pull off the Dark Motorcycle Helmet — though it definitely wouldn't hurt if you were cruising on something resembling the Batpod. No, this helmet is made for the not-quite-average guy with a penchant for the unique (even if he doesn't spend his nights fighting crime). Molded from a proprietary elastomer material, this DOT-approved full face helmet features interchangeable clear and tinted visors, and flexible points at the top for a silhouette that's sure to get a few looks. Removable liners and adjustable vents help keep things cool, while multiple vents reduce fog and keep you comfortable.
