Emergency and Survival
Tried and true, the UST MagBar Fire Starter combines magnesium shavings and the sparks of a flint to start a fire when you need it. Use the serrated edge to shave off magnesium into a pile, then use the other edge to strike the flint bar and create sparks to reliably start hundreds of fires.
A classic tool for camping, backpacking, and emergency preparedness, the lightweight UST StarFlash Floating Signal Mirror has a built-in precision aiming system for accurate signaling, and it won’t sink if dropped in water. In addition to using it for emergency signaling, it’s handy for personal grooming as well. The virtually unbreakable Floating Mirror also features a lanyard hole for convenient attachment to gear, and it works even in overcast conditions or at night with moonlight or other light sources.

If you're forced to spend an unexpected night outdoors, on the side of the road, or in your home without heat, count on the Survive Outdoors Longer® Emergency Bivvy to keep you warm and dry. Made from tear-resistant, aluminum-coated polyethylene, this bivvy reflects 90% of your body heat back to you, providing life-saving warmth, and is sealed to protect you from wind, rain, and snow. Ultralight and compact, the Emergency Bivvy is a small yet potentially life-saving addition to your survival gear, car, home, bike bag, hiking pack, and camping gear. When turned inside out, the bivvy bag doubles as an emergency blanket, so you can wrap yourself in its heat reflective warmth while setting up camp, watching soccer games, or enjoying the stars. With this bivvy, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’re prepared with the personal emergency shelter that has saved lives in the harshest outdoor conditions.
The same ultra-light, ultra-warm full protection shelter that professionals rely on, now sized for 2 people. The Survive Outdoors Longer® 2-Person Emergency Bivvy is made from the same heat-reflective polyethylene as Adventure Medical Kit's world-famous emergency blankets (reflecting 90% of your body heat back to you), with the added benefit of being fully sealed so that no wind, rain, or snow can get inside. If you and your partner are forced to spend the unexpected night outdoors, both of you can hop in the Survive Outdoors Longer® 2-Person Emergency Bivvy as soon as the temperature drops and instantly improve the odds in your favor.
The most advanced emergency blanket on the market - meticulously designed to never fail when you're counting on it with your life. It all starts with the material, vacuum-metalized polyethylene, that reflects 90% of your body heat while also offering a number of other important features that set it apart from traditional mylar blankets; it opens easily and will not shred if nicked or punctured, rips and tears can be repaired, it is quiet and won't crinkle in high winds, and its high-visibility orange exterior makes it easy for rescuers to find you. Plus, survival tips and techniques are printed directly on the blanket so you have them when you need them. Sized to fit one person.
The Survive Outdoors Longer® Escape™ Bivvy is nothing less than a revolution in backcountry shelters. The complaint with most ultra-light emergency shelters is the same: condensation builds up inside as you get warm, leaving your clothes soaking wet. With the Escape™ Bivvy, condensation is no longer an issue, and you never again have to choose between staying dry and staying warm. The proprietary fabric lets moisture escape at the same time that it keeps rain, snow, and wind on the outside – all while reflecting your body heat back to you. Waterproof seams plus a drawstring hood closure and side zip mean you can seal out the elements entirely or use the bivvy like a traditional sleeping bag, and the high-visibility orange exterior makes it easy for rescuers to spot you even in areas with high tree cover.
You want to go 'Light and Fast' but you need a backcountry shelter that breathes. The SOL Escape Lite™ Bivvy was developed especially for you! Constructed with our proprietary Escape fabric and with a minimalist design the Escape Lite™ weighs in at only 5.5 oz and packs incredibly small. The proprietary fabric lets moisture escape at the same time that it keeps rain, snow, and wind on the outside – all while reflecting your body heat back to you. The Escape Lite™ is no one-trick pony either, use it as a liner to enhance the warmth of your traditional sleeping bag, as an ultra-light weight summer bag or as an emergecy bivvy. Now you really can go further and explore longer!
Visible over 10 miles! Target planes, helicopters, and distant search and rescue teams with the Rescue Flash™ Signal Mirror. The 3M® reflective aiming aid enables you to signal targets from miles away, and the lightweight Lexan construction will not break if dropped.
