3. Solar Power Bank

Camping Gear Power Bank

Without power, a lot of our favorite survival tools will stop to function.

Radios, GPS, flashlights – you NEED a backup plan to keep them charged and working.

A good solar charger can provide you with a steady stream of power. And a battery pack can allow you to store that power for when you need it most.

The only thing better would be to combine the two – and that’s what the Solar Power Bank does!

No more connecting the charger to a battery, just put it out in the sun until it’s charged and then use it when you need power!

Whether you're in need of some extra power to call for a rescue or you just want to post a picture of a gorgeous view, we believe you should be able to harness the power of the sun.

4. Hammock Tent

Keep your campsite up off the ground and away from critters by rigging it up between a couple of trees! 

5. Padded Floor Tiles

Don’t sleep on the hard, uncomfortable ground and make a soft tent floor! Put down some of these cheap and easy tiles for ultimate camping comfort.

6. Microfiber Towels

These towels are less bulky, more absorbent, and dry out quicker. Take these instead of your old-school rags for an easier clean up at camp. Even towels are evolving for better camping gear.

7. Survival Knife

I couldn’t possibly list all the uses of a knife around the campground. It’s one of those tools you’ll use every single day for a variety of tasks.

But not all knives are created equal.

I prefer the durability of a full-tang fixed blade knife over a pocket knife. But these knives can be a pain to carry.

This tactical knife is incredibly durable and able to cut through a ton of different materials, such as paracord and rope, and is also made to comfortably fit around your neck!

That’s why you should consider wearing a neck knife.

This Neck Knife puts a compact, survival knife around your neck. This access gives you immediate access to a sharp blade at hand whenever you need it.

8. Campfire Panini Press/Pie Iron

Turn your campfire into a gourmet kitchen with this easy-to-use camping food tool.

9. Hanging Tent

Stay up and away from the hard ground and campsite critters with this tent. It looks dangerous but this teepee style tent can hold two people with its durable buckling system.

10. USB Charger Batteries

USB Charger Batteries

A dead battery leaves you powerless in more ways than one!

Now, there are a few problems with traditional batteries that annoy most of us.

The obvious one is that you'll need a lot of them when SHTF or when Camping. And that adds up to a heavy load to carry or store!

Another drawback is that once your batteries are drained, they're utterly useless to you... unless you're looking for post-apocalyptic paperweights.

Let's face it — it gets expensive buying batteries just to chuck 'em in the garbage. So, a lot of people spend extra money to get rechargeable batteries.

But the truth is rechargeable batteries from the last few years are terrible.

They flat-out don't hold a charge well and are really just as expendable as their "one and done" cousins.

But things have changed. Now the best in battery power has been combined with state-of-the-art recharging tech...

Designed for versatility and ease of use, you can recharge EasyPower batteries pretty much anywhere there's a USB port - including solar powered devices like the Pocket Light and EnerPlex Solar Charger. 

Combined with a solar powered charger, the EasyPower is one of the best AA batteries for survival.

11. Emergency Survival Blanket

12. Tesla Fire

Over the years, I’ve tried a lot of windproof lighters and found them all to be more “wind-resistant” than anything. The Tesla Lighter is a different breed – a flame-free, smoke-free, fuel-less lighter.

Try as hard as you want; you can’t blow out the twin plasma arcs.Instead, they produce easy fire starts for all types of natural kindling.
