- Meet the Hiker in us all.
First of all, the hiker loves walking through a dense forest or up an open mountain range, and each time feels like a great escape. Hiking past the next ridge or along a beaten animal track excites the hiker to no end. Because getting outside makes you sleep better, lowers your stress and makes you physically stronger and healthier. Let’s face it, experiencing this little piece of paradise makes you feel like you own the world, and for good reason, when it spoke, you listened!
- Introducing the dedicated Camper
For the camper, spending a night in the bush puts you at ease. Most times making you set up camp right there, in that special spot you found beside a river or lake. The spot that called to you, like a wolf howling at the moon. The camper goes through the usual routine of erecting a tent, collecting fire wood, and cooking the food you brought over an open fire. Then, the camper snuggles into a warm bed for the night, listening to the last bits of crackling sparks, breathing in the smells of smoke and burning wood, before drifting into a deep sleep. For you, there is nothing else like it, nothing else like the adventure you just lived through.
- In case of an Emergency
When an emergency happens, it happens without notice, so every Hiker and Camper should have a few tricks up their sleeve. It is very important to have a well thought out emergency response plan. It is also important to have a few items at your disposal too. You will be glad you took them with you. Because getting hurt in the wilderness is not fun. That is why we highlighted some neat gadgets we feel should make it on your packing list. Just 4 things to get you started, or at least get you thinking about it.

2. First Aid Kit
When it comes to safety, there is nothing more important than having a First Aid kit nearby. This kit will not disappoint you because it includes 85 pieces, and offers a wide selection of what you need to feel secure. We wouldn’t go without it either, that is why we added it as one of the main components to our Survival Kit. But, you could easily place it in your vehicle as a standalone unit because it has its own hard-shell foam case. Use the included carabiner to hang it from a backpack, tent or put it in your camper. Whatever the case, it will be there when you need it. Don’t worry, it also comes with an informative First Aid Guide that explains what to do. See the full details here.
