VSSL Survival Supplies – Outdoor Utility Tools Product Review

VSSL Survival Tube
Emergency Equipment Review

In this article I review and test the VSSL Survival Equipment Tube. A modern day equivalent to the old fashioned survival tin.

Although the survival tin is a good solid method for compact outdoors and survival equipment, it was about time someone came up with a solid alternative that works.

* Basic Survival Requirements

In any emergency survival situation you wont get far without some specific equipment to help you keep alive. In fact, it's pretty obvious that without any survival equipment you greatly increase your chances of not being found.

So it just makes sense to always have something with you that does the job in an emergency.

Always consider the Survival Rule Of 3s, and apply them immediately you are in any sort of a situation that could become a dangerous situation.

Once you have a plan of action, you can begin to implement the basic rules of survival and your rescue:

  • Treat immediate medical issues
  • Ensure you have shelter and protection from the elements
  • Build a fire as a means to keep warm, dry clothes and purify your water
  • Locate a water source

This is definitely very well thought out kit, with essential survival gear of good quality.
A 21st entry approach to the old fashioned tin box storage method, and a very good alternative it is as well.
