Shop for survival gear in our Pro Shop, featuring a hand picked selection of gear from our instructors and associates. This is gear we we’ve personally used, and know works.
Meaning, when you shop Amazon through our portal here, we receive a tiny commission percentage for ANYTHING you purchase (not just what we list here). This doesn’t cost you one single penny more, but it supplements our website and keeps the costs of the courses lower while enabling us to afford the world class instructors that we feature. We also use this small commission to fund our Operation Yellowbird events for our fellow veterans.
Mobile vs Desktop
For some reason, more of the items we’ve selected show up on the “desktop mode” vs viewing on your cell. Thus, if you are on your cell and want to see more items we suggest, switch to your PC. You can also select “desktop version” in your browser options menu.
Because of this, the first FOUR options at the top of every section are our first picks in that category. They are the “must haves”, if you will.
If you don’t see the survival gear you are looking for below, use the search bar at the bottom of each category.
Miscellaneous “must haves”
ELECTRONIC GPS –
There is a caveat here: DO NOT RELY on GPS. The keyword there is “RELY”. While they are a very useful tool for the toolbox, MANY a hiker/backpacker have been lost due to a failed/dead GPS system. Take the TIME and EFFORT to learn proper Land Nav before you go wandering off into the backcountry. Search and Rescue resources and better served saving injured people than ones who got lost because they didn’t care enough to invest in proper training in land navigation/orienteering.
