Tire Traction Pads

Tire Traction Pads are a must have for every season. If you plan on going cross country, or even across your lawn, these Traction Pads can get you out of trouble. They really are an all season piece of gear. In the summer even the grass median can turn to a treacherous swamp. Do you want to have to call a tow truck just because you pulled off into some grass. Do you drive onto the beach? You know exactly how these Traction Pads can save the day.

Come winter, the snow and slush can easily bog you down. When you just want to get out and get moving, these Tire Traction Pads are perfect. Jam them under your tires, slowly advance, and you are on your way. Just make sure to stop and pick them back up once you are clear. Unless of course you have a Zombie horde hot on your tail.

Tire Traction Pads Scoring

When it coming to keeping your vehicle on the move, these Traction Pads are a must have. I keep a set in my vehicle at all time. I’ve used them myself after getting bogged down helping a buddy get lumber into his back yard. I got in just fine but getting out left me tearing up his lawn and spinning my tires. Thankfully these Traction Pads solved the problem and once I was moving I didn’t stop until I was back on paved road.

When it comes to survival, these Traction Pads can have a moderate impact on your survival and score a 256/1000.

  • Great for trucks, cars, SUVs, jeeps, or nearly any other vehicle.

Blackout Window Film

This Blackout Window Film can be very useful. It’s hard for someone to know what you’ve got in store if they can’t see into your vehicle. That can improve your odds of survival when society falls apart and Max Max rules apply.

Just like a lot of other things, I’m going to give you a legal warning. Make sure this Blackout Window Film doesn’t violate any local laws or void your car insurance or vehicle warranty before applying it.

Okay, now that the legal stuff is covered, there are a lot of things to love about this Blackout Window Film. In the heat of summer this Film keeps my car cool and means my air doesn’t have to work as hard to keep it that way.

The other benefit of this Blackout Film is that it protects whatever gear I have in my car from sun damage. It also keeps anything on my seats from being easily seen. I keep a lot of valuable gear in my car, and I don’t want to come out and find it gone just because I parked in the wrong part of town for a half hour.

That same principal is critical post Zombie Apocalypse, but in reverse. If the Zombies can’t see you, they are less likely to try and bash in your windows – so if you end up sleeping in your vehicle, this Blackout Film gives you just a bit of help in not having every Zombie that walks by pressed against your vehicle windows when you wake up.

Blackout Window Film Scoring

This Film is awesome but only improves your survival chances by a small degree. This Film scores a 1/1000.

  • Protect vehicles contents from view.
  • Blocks UV, controls excess heat and glare.
  • Glue free design.

Garage Door Screens

These Garage Door Screens are an awesome addition to any garage. My buddy has a cabin out in the woods and his garage is set up as a bar. We open the garage doors, pull down these Garage Door Screens and enjoy the woods while we talk about how we are natural mountain men – and yes, there is a fan if we get too hot, because no mountain man should be forced to sweat while drinking an ice cold drink.

Want to save yourself from the mosquitos and bugs? You have to put these Door Screens up!

These Garage Door Screens may seem like a luxury Garage Survival Gear item but once the world ends the number of bugs is going to astound you. Most counties spray for bugs. Once they stop, its going to be uncomfortable, and maybe even dangerous to be out. Bugs can be a nuisance, but they can also dangerous. They spread illness and disease, and trust me when I say they are going to swarm when there are millions of dead bodies about.

Garage Door Screens Scoring

While the utility of these Screens varies depending on where you live and where your bolt hole is – they are still a solid purchase. Because a real disaster is going to leave the insects to breed like crazy these Screens score a 210/1000 and can have a moderate impact on your survival.

  • Screen seals around the entire edge of the garage door.
  • Automatically closes and stays closed.
  • Made of ultra-durable fiberglass.
  • Installs in minutes.

Evaporative Cooling Towel

This Evaporative Cooling Towel is a key survival tool when the temperatures rise and there is no air conditioning in sight. Wet it down, twirl in the air, and lay it on the back of your neck to get relief.

This Evaporative Cooling Towel is the first thing on my Warm Weather Survival gear list. Why? Because it is dirt cheap and highly effective. Heat stroke can disable you permanently or kill you. It is not something to play with. This Evaporative Cooling Towel gives you the ability to stay out of that red zone before it becomes life threatening.

If you are playing, working, or out hiking cross country, you can have an effective strategy to keep cool with nothing but some water and this Evaporative Cooling Towel. If you are hiking that can mean the difference between having to go to ground until the temperatures drops versus being able to safely continue forward.

Evaporative Cooling Towel Scoring

Air conditioning is going to be a dream after the Zombie Apocalypse. Staying cool is going to come down to planning and being smart. Stay out of the sun unless you have no choices during the worst heat of the day and take care of business early in the morning or later in the day. This Cooling Towel is a key part of that strategy to stay cool when you have no air condition to escape to which is why it scores a

Safety Warning: Listen to your body. If you start to get overheated its better to find shade and use your Evaporative Cooling Towel to help cool off.

  • Instant cooling relief.
  • Last for up to 4 hours on a single soak.
  • Simply re-wet to increase cooling duration.
  • Absorbs water and creates a cooling sensation as it evaporates.
  • Machine washable with mild detergent and air dry.
  • Reduces the effects of heat exhaustion.
  • Fights fatigue while working or playing.
  • Can be used to help bring down fevers.
  • 13in x 29.5in / 33cm x 75cm

YETI Tundra Haul Portable Wheeled Cooler

When it comes to keeping things cold when the temperatures are soaring this YETI Tundra Haul Portable Wheeled Cooler is a must have. Fill it with ice, food, and booze, and then try to open it as infrequently as possible. I’ve had a dozen coolers over my years of hunting and fishing, but this YETI is the last one I’ll ever need. It is built to last and has stood up to all the abuse I’ve thrown at it easily.

Some of the best hunting and fishing is way off the main trail and I have a rule. If I kill it, I’m going to eat it. Thanks to this YETI Tundra Cooler I can bring home everything I bag and nothing goes to waste.

I almost feel bad taking this YETI Tundra Cooler to the beach. The sun doesn’t stand a chance and by mid afternoon when other people are picking warm beers out of their inferior coolers I still have ice cold drinks and plenty of ice to make a few mixers.

Even though I live an hour from the coast, we still lose power due to hurricanes and storms at least once a year. We keep a few one gallon jugs in our freezer, and when the power goes out we load up the Cooler with the ice and food. Our fridge is no where near as insulated as this YETI Tundra Cooler and leaving the food in the fridge just means it will get warm within a day and we will have to throw it out. To be honest, this YETI Tundra Cooler has probably already paid for itself with the food we haven’t had to toss when the power goes out.

Tundra Portable Wheeled Cooler Scoring

When it comes to surviving everything from natural disasters to the Zombie Apocalypse, you will be grateful you have this YETI Tundra Cooler to optimize your food storage. Pair this Cooler with some solar and a freezer, and you can make ice even after the power goes out. This YETI Cooler scores a 725 as it can have a high impact on your survival.

Cooling UPF 50 Bucket Hat

There is nothing worse than the sun in your eyes, except maybe sunburn on your nose. Which makes this Cooling UPF 50 Bucket Hat a must have to survive the sun. The brim on this UPF 50 Bucket Hat is perfect to keep the sun, and the rain off my glasses. If you have been to Florida, you know how quickly those two things can alternate.

I have one Hat that has now been to India twice, Florida six or seven times, and various other Caribbean islands. So I am confident that if you get these Cooling UPF 50 Bucket Hats they will last. I also like that I can scrunch it up and put it in my pack without having to worry about destroying it.

I spend a good bit of time out in the woods, and I like the “bronze green” Cooling UPF 50 Bucket Hat for blending in. When I’m just having fun I prefer the “Sea Palm” Hat. The bordered edge looks cool in my humble opinion.

Don’t wait until your out in the sun with burnt retinas before you think about buying a UPF 50 Bucket Hat. Plan ahead and keep that sun off your face. Once your out in the sun burning its already too late. That goes double for when a natural disaster, or the Zombie Apocalypse strikes. It’s going to be too late to gear up once you actually need the gear. Plan ahead, make sure you have the gear you need to survive now!

Cooling UPF 50 Bucket Hat Scoring

If you plan on being outside this UPF 50 Bucket Hat is a key piece of survival gear. It can have a moderate impact on your survival and scores a 410/1000.

  • Cools to 30 degrees below average body temperature when wet!
  • Easy to fold small for packing or sticking in your back pocket.
  • Stay active longer, reduce risk of heat stroke.
  • 3’ brim and UPF 50 fabric offers excellent sun protection.
  • Machine washable.

Hiking Shorts

Having the right clothing is critical to survival and these Hiking Shorts are crucial warm weather survival gear. When the temperatures soar, staying cool isn’t just about being comfortable, it is also about survival. That makes these Shorts a must have for everyday use, playing sports, and most importantly, hiking and camping.

One of the things I love about these Hiking Shorts is how well they wick sweat and dry quickly. That’s great if your sweating, and even better if your lucky enough to find places to swim while you are hiking. These Shorts dry off quickly allowing me to swim on hikes without having to carry extra clothing.

That same ability to dry quickly makes them perfect for those high output activities that leave you soaked with sweat. There is nothing worse than walking around as your clothing slides around you on your own sweat. Thankfully these Shorts dry quickly and are so comfortable you can wear them for days. If I’m on a long hike carrying any extra weight isn’t an option. I’d rather carry more water or food and with these these Hiking Shorts I can just rinse them off every few days and they are tough enough to take the constant wear and tear of daily use.

Don’t waste your money on clothing that will fall apart with hard use. Invest in these Hiking Shorts and you will get years of use out of them.

Hiking Shorts Scoring

Clearly I really like these Hiking Shorts. When it comes to survival, they are obviously going to have a lower impact on the overall scale and earn a 190/1000.

  • Wear-Resistant.
  • Quick Dry & Lightweight.
  • Effectively Repel Rain Or Water Quickly.
  • 2 Front Slash Pockets,2 Thigh Zipper Pockets And 1 Rear Zipper Pocket.
  • Comfortable and long wearing.
  • Perfect for sports and daily wear.
  • Perfect for Hiking, Camping, Work, and Travelling.
  • Perfect for Fishing, Mountaineering, and Cycling.

Canopy Tent Sun Shade

My wife loves to lie in the sun. I love to lie under this Canopy Tent Sun Shade and read a book. If you have kids, this Sun Shade is perfect to keep them out of the sun but still let them enjoy the beach and the outdoors.

It may sound strange, but we take this Canopy Tent Sun Shade on long road trips as well. We learned our lesson years ago while driving cross country. There are large sections of the west which are wide open and blazing hot in the sun. Ever get a flat tire and have to wait six hours for road assistance? Not fun. Don’t be put in the same situation I was in. It was swelter in the car or try not to roast on the ground while crouching in the limited shade of the vehicle. It sucked.

Canopy Tent Sun Shade Scoring

Over exposure can kill you just as easily as hypothermia. Because of this, the Sun Shade can have a Moderate impact on your survival and earned a 465/1000 on the Survival Scale.

Be prepared for the blazing sun with this Canopy Tent Sun Shade.

  • UPF 50+ sun protection.
  • Blocks over 98% of the UV rays.
  • Waterproof fabric keeps you and your gear dry.
  • Great Ventilation.
  • Includes two mesh pockets.

  • Large and Private.
  • Tent is 83″ x 55″ x 47″.

Sherpa Waterproof Camping Blanket

This Sherpa Waterproof Camping Blanket may be the perfect camping blanket. It is warm, durable, and the waterproof shell on the outside means that I can put it down on wet ground and not worry about it getting soaked through. I don’t care what season it is, I keep a Sherpa Waterproof Camping Blanket when I’m out camping, hiking, and hunting because hypothermia sucks. Even if its a warm day, a little bit of rain cand wind can rapidly leave you shivering. Nothing like a nice Camping Blanket to get and stay warm.

It also means that if the weather turns really nasty I can wrap it around me like a cloak with the Waterproof shell facing out. If thing get nasty, and sometimes that is a surprise, you’ll be glad you have this Camping Blanket.

Be prepared, keep Camping Blanket with your gear and in your vehicle. The person you save may be a loved!
