Survival Tools for Traveling to Remote Places

Traveling to unknown areas, particularly remote destinations or developing nations, you may encounter unfamiliar or even dangerous situations.  Even basics like clean drinking water could be difficult to find. The key to handling the unknown is being prepared for any situation.

Before beginning your journey, make sure to check out the survival tools packing list we’ve put together. It includes indispensible items for anyone traveling to remote places around the globe.

A Pocket Knife and/or Commando Saw
A pocketknife is an essential, versatile survival tool. (Be sure to pack it in your checked luggage!)  If you are only bringing a carry-on, a commando style saw offers travelers another cutting option. A commando saw is made of a 20” stainless steel wire blade that can cut through wood, rubber, bone, plastic, even soft metal. Nylon wrist straps at either end of the wire make for comfortable operation and it can be converted from a saw to a snare by passing one wrist strap through the other.

Survival Spring by Alexapure Personal Water Filter
In remote places like the Amazon or central Asia, clean water may not be readily available. That’s why a device like the Survival Spring is such an important survival tool to have on hand. This portable water filterhttp://www.mypatriotsupply.com/Articles.asp?ID=398 is perfect for campers and hikers that may have to resort to drinking from rivers and streams that could be contaminated.

The LifeStraw is able to:
•    Filter up to 300 gallons of water
•    Remove 99.99999% of waterborne bacteria
•    Remove 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites

The Torch Solar / Hand Crank LED Flashlight
When the sun goes down having a light source can be a lifesaver. If you’re in the middle of the Costa Rican rainforest or the Appalachian Mountains relying on batteries isn’t your safest bet. The Goal Zero Torch LED Flashlight can be charged by 12V, wall plug, solar power or a hand crank so you’re never left in the dark. The Torch features a total of 22 LED that can be used as both a floodlight and flashlight.


Additional Survival Tools for Remote Travel
•    The 31 Piece Survival Kit – includes an emergency survival guide along with 30 survival items
•    Flint or Magnesium Fire Starte
•    7-in-1 Survival Whistle
•    Emergency Blanket
•    Compass
•    First Aid Kit
•    Water Treatment Tablets

Ensure you’re prepared during your travels no matter how remote the area. Make sure there’s room in your bug out bag for the survival tools above.

Safe travels!
