5 Must Have Survival Gadgets In The Event Of An Apocalypse
It’s 2017, Donald Trump is the President Of The United States, Kim Jung Un is being more of a nut job than normal, and don’t even get me started on Russia. I’m sure the end of the world isn’t going to be anytime soon, but with these events happening, It makes me wonder.
A few Nukes back and forth, one Bioweapon or even natural causes such as an asteroid, and we could be on the verge of an apocalyptic event. If you’re lucky enough to survive you’ll need the right planning, survival gear, and gadgets to increase your odds of further survival.
In this list, you will find 5 of the most useful gadgets to help you survive in a post-apocalyptic event.
The Life Straw
The primary building block of life is water, without it you’re dead. On the other hand, if you go and drink from a random lake or swamp you could become Ill and die. With the life straw filtration system, you can drink from almost all sources of water, excluding Ocean water. So unless you want the beaver fever, I suggest you throw a Life Straw into your survival kit.
Cold Steel XL Recon 1 Tanto Point Foldable Knife
Cold Steel is the leading manufacturer of foldable knives, making safe knives with strong durability. They are used by emergency responders, military, special forces, police officers, hunters, and fisherman. With a hard enough jab, you could puncture through the hood of a car with this knife.
The Cold Steel XL Recon 1 Tanto knife has a 6 ¾” handle and a 5 ½” blade, and is made out of the highest quality of metal. The blade will stay sharp, and be able to meet anybody’s needs.
Leatherman Wave Multitool
A Leatherman is always a must have. Carrying around a bottle opener, a pair of scissors, pliers, a file, a saw, and screwdrivers can be space consuming. Why not have them all in one spot? It eliminates having to carry around a bunch of crap and it can easily strap onto your belt or pants alongside your Cold Steel Tanto knife.
I recommend the Leatherman brand they’ve always made high-quality products. Leatherman uses the highest grade materials, to ensure that the multi tool will be able to withstand even the greatest load.
Hand Crank Radio Flashlight Powerbank Hybrid
This LED light, emergency radio hybrid is a game changer. Not everyone carries around hundreds of batteries, so the built-in hand crank and solar chargers will save the day. If that wasn’t enough, you are also able to charge it VIA USB.
You can also use it as a power bank to charge your electronics. If you’re looking for other humans and the batteries dead, give it a crank, and you will be powered up in no time.
This hand crank radio light also comes with lifetime warranty, but I doubt that would be much use in the apocalypse. Still though, for $33 you’re getting one hell of a product, they even throw in a fire starter and whistle.
6-in-1 Survival Bracelet
The 6-in-1 Survival Bracelet is another great gadget that will help in your post-apocalyptic adventures. This is not your average bracelet. It comes loaded with a watch, compass, whistle, thermometer, fire starter scraper and 550lb parachute cord.
All 6 features are useful, but the best part is that the strap is a 3-meter long rescue rope that can unravel at a moment’s notice. You never know when you are going to need to tie something down or jimmy rig a tool using the rope.
