Our 1-1/8" dia compass has a glow-in-the-dark face and a movable bezel with 5-degree increments in a 2-3/8” x 1-1/2” teardropish housing. Attached to a 1” slip ring by a black canvas strap. Get one for all the scouts, add to your EDC or attach one to your emergency go-bag.
No flames means no flames for the wind to blow out. This electric-coil all purpose lighter measures 3-5/8" x 1-1/8" x 5/8" with a retractable coil on one end and a retractable USB plug on the other end to recharge it. Has a 17-second auto-shutoff to save juice. We'll pick one in red or black.
Call it the bag of a lesser messenger. This dark olive Extreme Pak™ tote looks like a mini-backpack but has a shoulder strap plus a pair of handles. Measures approx 11-1/2" tall x 8-1/2" wide x 6" deep front to back, it's got a big inside zippered compartment, a smaller zippered pouch on the bottom, a pair of hook-and-loop closed pockets on the top, plus a plethora (that'd be 10) of band loops to hang stuff off. Mfg suggested retail is over $30. Just saying.
They have the look of something designed for the space program. They're
mylar, a paper-thin shiny metallic sheet, that comes in handy when your
car breaks down in winter, or when you're separated from your climbing
group on the slopes of Mt. McKinley. Barring that, they're also a
perfect material for a do-it-yourself cold-climate Halloween
costume-near impossible to rip by hand, but cut easily with scissors.
There's no padding, so they wouldn't be too comfy on your bed, but they
sure are warm. They both come folded about the size of a wallet. The
Blanket is 52" x 82", the Sleeping Bag is 34" x 84".
It's a 10-tool Swissesque military survival knife, but without those red plastic handles to break and fall off. Includes stainless steel 2-1/2" knife blade, flathead driver/bottle opener, saw blade, scissors, can opener, fish scaler/nail set, corkscrew, Phillips driver, awl, nail file and the needle-like thing for making buckskin clothes in case you're lost for years. Has a split ring to hang your keys from.
Looks like an antacid tablet, a white disc 13/16" dia x 3/8" thick, but drop it in water and the rayon instantly expands into a 9" x 13" reusable wipe. Can you say handy? No mother should ever leave the house without a few in her purse and no glove compartment is complete without a handful. Click here and watch the magic!
Nobody would dare vote you off the island if you have this stainless steel survival tool. Smaller than a credit card at 2-3/4" x 1-3/4", it has (11) functions: can opener, knife edge, flathead screwdriver, small ruler, bottle opener, 4-position wrench, saw blade, 2-position wrench and a couple more. Slip it into your wallet or hang it on your keychain, then go get lost.
Newly manufactured P-38 Can Opener from the same folks who supply them to Uncle. It folds! into 1-1/2" x 5/8" flat piece which is easily carried and lost. Reportedly works much better than the Asian knockoffs for those who really want to gain entry to the Spam!
