From the Bargain Bin:  Curious about some of the top sellers at Amazon?  I have to say that the top seller recently is the little itty bitty Nano flashlight that puts our a ton of light.  You will be amazed.  Second is the Kershaw OSO Sweet Knife and third are the Emergency Blankets.  But the big news this month is the Mountain House Sale at Emergency Essentials.

Streamlight Nano Light Keychain LED Flashlight: extremely small and light weight yet it will throw off a decent amount of super-bright light. At just .36 ounces and 1.47 inches long, the Streamlight Nano Light Keychain Flashlight will take up a minimum of space in your pocket or bag.

Kershaw OSO Sweet Knife: This “oh so sweet” knife is solidly built, stainless steel knife that comes razor sharp right out of the package. It will pretty much cut through anything the price is amazing.  Currently on sale for an amazing $19.08 (although prices on Amazon do change daily if not hourly.)

Emergency Mylar Thermal Blankets: These come in compressed packets small enough to fit in a pocket or wallet. You will be surprised at how warm these will keep you. About $8 for a pack of 10. 

Mountain House Sale: For the month of June, Emergency Essentials will be offering all Mountain House products at a discount of 20% to 25%.  Shipping cost is $6, $9, or $12 depending on the size of your order and never more.  (And you know how heavy food items can be.)  Be sure to check out the Freeze-Dried Mountain House Pouches which offer a great way to sample the various food items before investing in the larger #10 tins.

    1. The link should open up your email client. If that is not working for you, use the other link but change the subject to “Best Backdoor Survival Article”. (I just checked and the link is still working at my end so it may simply be internet weirdness.)
