Camping & Wilderness Survival Kit Review

Updated on April 24, 2013

Camping is one popular way to get away from city ways and get back to the basics of life. The idea of it charms a lot of people with visions of fresh air, being surrounded by nature, and relaxing in tents, far away from honking car horns, ringing telephones and other noises. But this is only one side of it. The other side is that you will be saying a little, “see you in a while” to electric outlets, light bulbs, your heavy mechanical tools and kitchen cutlery. For the meantime, at camp, you’ll need some things to give you convenience without making your back sore.

Some things you definitely need to bring on a camping trip aside from sleeping bags and tents are camping flashlights, sharp camping tools such as knives, camping lighters and medical supplies. Camping flashlights are designed to blaze out a trail for you, especially at night in dense and dark areas. Knives are for cutting food, cords and other camping-related purposes. Camping lighters differ from the standard lighters in a way that they got what it takes to fire up in the midst of harsh winds and unpredictable weather. And finally, medical supplies are valuable because you never really know what’s in for you and your camping companions.

Many of these camping must-haves are all packed in easy-to-carry kits. These emergency kits enable campers to be very much prepared while traveling with light loads. You can do the same with the following great camping survival / emergency kits.
