Priorities during an emergency are shelter from the elements, staying warm and signaling rescue. The Sol Scout kit covers all your bases. The scout kit has a two person emergency blanket that protects you from wind, rain and snow while reflecting and trapping your body heat. The Scout kit also has a magnesium striker and petroleum soaked cotton pellets for easy fire starting. The kit also includes a fishing kit, duct tape, signal mirror, compass and a whistle. All the contents are held in a waterproof sack for safe keeping. The total weight is only 5.4 ounces and can fit in a coat pocket. SOL stands for "survive outdoors longer" and the Scout kit will help you do just that.
