Today is the first day of summer and camping, hiking, and playing sports are all great things to do when warm weather hits.

Some of the items found in this kit include a multi-tool, mini flashlight, handsaw, blanket, waterproof matches, fire-starter, and more!
If one of your New Years Resolutions this year was to start prepping, then take a look at this list of the top 10 items you’ll need to start your collection!
1) One of the most important items for our body is fresh drinking water. Key for survival packs is to include a water filtration system. This Katadyn Mini Ceramic Water Filter is small and compact which will make it easy to carry and pack in your survival gear backpack.
2) This Zippo Fire Starter will allow you to keep warm no matter what weather you encounter and it’s small compact size allows you to easily tote it with you in your survival gear pack.
3) Along the same lines as the Fire Starter, this Survival Blanket will keep you warm on cold nights. This blanket is lightweight, reusable, waterproof, and can be folded to fit in your pack for storage and carrying.
4) In case of an emergency happening to you or someone you are travelling with, make sure you have a First Aid Kit handy. This Military Olive Drab Large First Aid Kit contains everything you will need in case of an emergency.
5) Doomsday Preppers often carry some type of weapon for various uses. This 11 Inch Junge Survival Knife Kit contains two separate knives, an 11 in. larger knife and a smaller throwing knife as well as a few other survival accessories. Again, this is compact enough to be stored within your survival pack.
6) To ensure that you never lose track of where you are, make sure you pack a compass in your survival kit. This Multifunction Solar Powered Digital Compass is great because it can be re-charged using solar power so no matter what you encounter, you will be able to continue using this compass.
7) Because you will never want to be in the dark, pack a Solar Powered Lantern with you. This Solar Powered Lantern can be re-charged and has two different modes including one that will save energy.
8) Known for its multitude of uses, Paracord is one of those things you should never leave off of your survival pack checklist.
Pretty much anything you can imagine, you can use Paracord for including making a hammock, gear repair, decoration, security, belt, boot laces, tying food from a tree, etc.
9) The Shark Safety Whistle is imperative to a survival pack emitting a loud whistle that will assist you in search and rescue operations as well as outdoor and personal safety.
10) Last, but definitely not least, you will need a tactical backpack that will hold all of your survival equipment. The Rapid 96 4 Day Tactical Backpack has padded shoulder straps, a padded back, and is MOLLE Compatible so extra pouches can be added for additional room.
By the looks of it, we have all survived the Mayan Apocalypse without any problems, so now we can all go back to waiting for our favorite world ending event; the zombie apocalypse! With everyone’s favorite zombie show, The Walking Dead, off the air until February, we thought we would give you your zombie fix with a list products to complete your zombie apocalypse survival kit and make you the ultimate zombie killing machine.
To start out the list, we all know that everyone imagines themselves looking like a bad a$$ when the zombies rise ( myself included), so you need to have the perfect zombie apocalypse outfit on hand. A basic military BDU pant is a good choice due to the functional design, including several pockets to store your extra ammo. Don’t worry ladies, these pants also come in pink camo so you can still have a touch of femininity during the zombie invasion. A tactical vest is also a smart choice. All of the pouches allow you to keep all of your gear close to your body and easy to access. Throw on a moisture wicking t-shirt on underneath and you’ll be good to go. Another great option would also be a leather jacket. Tough and durable, leather may help prevent biters from getting to your skin. What you have on your feet is also important. I suggest a tall leather boot.
As far as zombie weapons and zombie tools, guns are typically the most efficient, but not everyone has access to guns and some do not even want guns in their house. So here are some creative, yet effective alternatives. The Parang Machete is a great choice for those of you who don’t mind getting close to the walkers. The ergonomic handle has a comfortable, textured grip so the chance of slippage when your swinging the machete through the air is greatly reduced. The SOG Tomahawk is also perfect to have during the rise of the dead. Not only can it be used to destroy zombies, it can be used for other purposes like chopping wood and it can be attached to your belt.
In addition to all of these items, Harry’s also has a number of survival items like food and water rations, first aid kits, emergency blankets, and more that are all practical items to have around the house in case of a more likely emergency, but would still be great to have in case of the zombie invasion.
All of these items will help make you look like and feel like the ultimate zombie killing bad a$$, but it’s up to you to summon your inner warrior to get the job done.
