Top 5 unusual survival accessories

The most original survival equipment

Generally speaking, we associate the idea of going on vacation with relaxation and comfort. But most of the time, our adventurous spirit gets the better of us and pushes us into very particular, not to say dangerous, situations. When this happens, nothing beats good survival gear. We’ve selected ten of the most unusual survival accessories we’ve seen.

1. The 5-in-1 survival whistle

Have you ever imagined yourself surviving thanks to a whistle? If not, then you’ve never heard of the 5-in-1 survival whistle, which consists of a whistle, a magnesium stick, a compass cap and a signal mirror. All combined in a watertight orange box. Its yellow cord is sure to appeal to the most adventurous of hikers. A must-have, especially given its price (6.40€).

2. Waterproof all-weather notebook

This accessory will enable you to realize the children’s dream that we all have: writing in the rain. In fact, the waterproof all-weather notebook lets you write in all weathers. Please note, however, that this is a survival accessory, not a poetry book. You can use it with pencils, ballpoint pens or markers without any problem. It contains 50 green sheets and weighs 80 grams. Its dimensions of 10 x 15 cm make it both practical and discreet.

3. The compact survival kit

Despite its featherweight dimensions (155 grams, 12 x 9.5 x 3.5 cm), this kit will surprise you with its versatility. Inside this little box, you’ll find no less than fifteen essential survival items. Here’s a selection:

  • a mini compass
  • a small knife
  • matches
  • a pencil
  • a wire for trapping
  • a candle

In two words: small but mighty.

4. The special forces survival knife

The typical accessory for adventurers. This is a knife with a stainless steel blade. With its sawtooth back, rigid sheath with nylon straps and pockets for survival gear, it’s a pretty solid performer. Its dimensions bear witness to this: an 18.5 cm blade and a weight of 530 grams including sheath.

5. Survival mirror

This little object can literally save your life. It’s a very useful signaling mirror for emergencies and exploration. Weighing just 60 grams and measuring 77x50x5 mm, it really doesn’t take up much space. And that’s what makes it so unusual: how can such a small accessory have so much influence on a person’s survival?

This short list is by no means exhaustive. In all cases, remember to be well equipped
