SOL Origin Survival Kit

When trekking through the wilderness, survival is always key. The SOL Origin Survival Kit ($39) helps you to survive the unexpected with ten survival essentials as well as over 60 techniques and strategies from backcountry expert Buck Tilton, all conveniently packed in one lightweight waterproof case.

  • Strathwood Portable Folding Hammock

    Hammocks are fantastic, but traditional models require something that's not always available: two sturdy trees/poles to hold them up, and once they're up, they're not exactly mobile. The Strathwood Portable Folding Hammock ($80) solves this problem by using a powder-coated steel frame that folds up and drops into its included carrying case, while the textilene fabric sling, suspension chains, and removable pillow keep you comfy, provided you had the sense to park the thing in the shade.

  • VKing

    We'll readily admit that we've never played VKing ($100) before, but any game that includes battle axes, shields, and kings is cool with us. Based on an old, old Swedish Viking game, the object is to use your battle axes to bust all of your opponent's shields, and then conquer the king. As for the set itself, it's handcrafted in Vermont from hardwoods and includes 10 shields, 6 battle axes, 4 field markers, 1 king, a canvas storage bag, and, thankfully, a rule sheet. Our guess is it's probably a helluva drinking game as well, given that it was created by, you know, vikings.
