There's a lot to pack for when heading out on your next adventure, from adequate apparel to a sturdy shelter. One thing you shouldn't forget, though, is to cover the bases of a survival kit. While it should be complete enough to handle most hassles you'll encounter while in the wild, it also shouldn't be the equal of having to pack an extra duffel worth of gear.
This is where the MS5 Everyday Carry Survival Kit comes in. It packs an entire survival kit into a 7.55” baton-shaped capsule that's compact enough to sit in your backpack or camping bag while still giving you easy access to all its components.
From its paracord sheath down to its pins and needles, the MS5's design integrates its pieces together so no part of the kit is wasted. Said sheath unravels into 30 feet of 550 paracord. The capsule fits into a box made of easily combustible wood, giving you a convenient firestarter in a pinch. The capsule itself comes in either aluminum or carbon fiber, wrapped in leather, and waterproofed to face the elements.
Inside the MS5 is an array of tools, including essentials like a knife, flashlight, and water filter. A firestarter, compass, and hooks, pins, and more also round out the survival part of the kit. And for a modern touch, the MS5 also includes a GPS tracker, USB charger, and USB drive to help you get found or make that important call for help.
Pack lightly, but completely—it may just save your life. Check out the MS5 Everyday Carry survival kit at the Kickstarter link below, and pick up the configuration to cover your needs.
