Spring and summer are the months for people to get organized and learn more about wilderness survival. The warmer months offer the best weather opportunities for people that are new to outdoor living or those that want to bring out the kids and start training them for new challenges. With several months of decent weather available it is possible to get nearly anyone ready for the harder camping trips that take place as the temperatures cool and hunting season begins. Here is some of the outdoor equipment to pick up for these learning adventures.
Keep it Bright
Lighting is a big safety issue and it is a tool that helps to alleviate some of the worries for people new to outdoor living. Tactical lanterns keep campsites bright and headlamps keep individuals safer on night hikes and when strolling into the woods to answer the call of nature after sunset. It is also important to have a variety of flashlights available, so no one is left without emergency lighting. Consider penlights, keychain lights and basic tactical flashlights.
Have Some Protection
Heavy duty holsters keep weapons close at hand. Durable tactical gloves make certain all hands are protected. Tactical goggles are essential for any target shooting because survival relies on keeping people healthy and uninjured. A multi-tool and water bottles and other emergency hydration gear are always needed.
Pack for Practice
Survival kits including food, water sterilization systems and first aid gear make it possible for people to create a practice scenario for themselves and their friends and family. Prepper meal kits, paracord spools and other survival gear can turn a camping vacation into a learning experience that will get everyone prepared for any emergency scenario.
The investment in any of this gear is something worthwhile because it will continue to be useful for any emergency in the woods or at home. The practice is great for active outdoor families that want to make certain all family members are safe if they ever become separated during a storm or other event in the wilderness. It is also a way for anyone that wants to enter the military to get a head start on the skills they will need to develop.
