SOL Origin Survival Tool Kit Review
There are tons of survival tool kits on the market and depending upon personal preferences the right kit is available for everyone, but there are always associated problems with purchases of this kind. Sometimes the kit is cheaply made and will not last in use of more than once or twice, others are so expensive they are a prohibitive investment given the infrequency of their use. Still others include items that are really not necessary in a survival setting and they take up valuable space for items that were left out.
In this area of outdoor gear however, the SOL Origin Survival Tool Kit pretty much encompasses everything that is needed to survive and conquer. Depending on where it is bought the price is around $40, and from a personal perspective it is well worth every penny in providing tools necessary to possibly save your life in a pinch.
The SOL Origin Survival Tool Kit weighs only 6.1 ounces and measures 3 7/8 inches wide by 2 3/4 inches long and 1 1/2 inches deep, and is housed inside an easy to find bright orange waterproof plastic case. The case features tools attached to the exterior that slide in and out, including a button compass, a combination knife with an LED light and a loud rescue whistle, and a very good fire striker. The case also offers a fantastic signal mirror that pops up with instructions on how to use it printed on the case.
Inside the SOL Origin Survival Tool Kit you'll discover just about everything necessary to catch some fish in a survival setting, including fishing line, 4 #10 hooks, 2 snap swivels, and 2 split shots, Additionally there are four tinder pods for starting a fire, 16 feet of stainless steel wire, 3 square feet of aluminum foil, a sewing needle, 10 feet of strong nylon cord and basic instructions for surviving regardless of experience. There is even a small compartment for storing personal items.
While the SOL Origin Survival Tool Kit isn't the beat-all-and-end-all survival kit it does the job it is intended to do at a reasonable price. As far as "grab n' go" survival kits are measured, this one stands up among the leaders as possessing good value.
