Keep everything you need in case of emergency with you without a lot of bulk with VSSL Outdoor Utility Tools. Available in three varieties — Supplies, First Aid, and Shelter — each packs all its included goodies into an 8" long, 2" diameter waterproof anodized aluminum cylinder that doubles as an LED flashlight. Inside Supplies, you'll find a compass, a beeswax candle, a razor blade, six water purification tablets, a wire saw, waterproof matches, fishing gear, and much more, while the First Aid pack includes an emergency first aid kit and compass, and the Shelter includes a lightweight emergency shelter — no surprise there. Oh, and if you're interested, there's also Zombie-killing spike with an included medical mask available for pre-order.
Ask any self-proclaimed outdoorsman what's the most important element of surviving the wilderness, and odds are, he'll say redundancy in all things — if one tool fails, it's essential to always have some sort of a backup (and maybe even a backup for your backup). And that's exactly what makes Flint Laces so vital: they give you an alternative means of making fire for when your matches get wet and your lighter won't spark. Housing a section of rubber-encased ferro rod at the end of the bootlace, all you need to do is expose it and strike it with steel to make a spark.
