BDS Top Deals of the Week
This full list covers all the deals we are tracking, irrespective of the various categories.
Everyone should have a surgical kit and most first aid kits completely look over this fact. This is an all in one surgical kit in a sturdy pack and reasonable cost. You even get a pin light to use. I recommend having another it and marking it for animal use if you have dogs, cats, or livestock.
This classic style Coleman Lantern runs on standard 16.9 ounce canisters that can be bought at any hardware store, a lot of gas stations, and camping stores. Sure it takes gas to run but it puts out a lot of light. This lantern produces 13 hours of light on the low setting and 7 hours on hight. For car camping or outdoor gatherings these are worth looking at.
If you have been looking for a reasonably priced rugged and sturdy bag for all your bug out needs then look no further! This is an outstanding bargain considering you also get a 2.5 liter heavy duty hydration bladder. I like how this hydration pack has the hose on the bottom and a sturdy carry handle.
I am curious if this hydration pack could be used with a filter like the Hydro Blu Versa to create a gravity feed system if you are in need of filtering and don’t want to pump. I realize that would mean the pack would need to be cleaned before using as a clean water vessel if it is used without the filter.
The pack itself is made of rugged nylon and has padding for comfort. A lot of pockets make it easy to organize all your gear.
4 Pack LEDs
Having a lot of inexpensive lights around can be nice. This 4 pack of lights may sound too good to be true but the overwhelming number of positive reviews from customers tells the story of a bargain. At this price you might want to get a few and put them back for barter items for SHTF or use them for stocking stuffers this holiday season.
Some two way portable radios are something that are on a lot of prepper wish lists. This is a basic set of 2 radios with an outdoor range of 28 miles and an indoor area range of 250,000 square feet and 8 floors. Just for perspective that is over 5.5 acres of indoor area or 2.7 Super Wal-Marts! These radios are built to take regular use and hold up under harsh conditions.
Gerber is a good go to brand for quality survival gear at an affordable price. This kit includes a gerber miniature multi-tool with 10 components, a miniature light, fire starter, cotton ball tinder, waterproof matches, snare wire, emergency cord, fishing kit, sewing kit, waxed thread, survival blanket, signaling mirror, and hand saw. The Priorities of Survival pocket guide, SOS instructions, and land to air rescue instructions! This 15 piece set makes a great gift and it only weighs 1 lb! Combine this kit with the bag and hydration pack on this list and you have a solid start to a very nice bug out bag set up.
While you may have some supplies on hand for yourself and family, what if you want to be able to help out a few others in an emergency? While this kit is definitely designed with survival in mind and not comfort, it does have enough supplies to keep 10 people going for 3 days. This means a single person could make it for 30 days on this. It comes packed in a 12 gallon tote. I could see stashing this at a bug out location for just in case. I am sure some of you have put together your own similar kits but for those that want an already put together solution, this is not a bad price.
Emergency Car Kit
Everyone needs a car emergency kit. While there are going to be a few things you want to add to this kit, it is a great start to an emergency winter car kit. If you have a loved one that you would like to be more prepared when traveling or maybe you just realized that you are lacking items in your vehicle, this is a reasonably priced solution. You even get gloves, hat, and a scarf as well as a folding shovel and emergency blanket!
Backup Battery Bank
For a little bit of back up power and a battery bank, this budget priced solar generator is an option. At just over 4 lbs with acessories it is light enough for most anyone to use, including younger members of the family. It has a built in Mp3 player that supports USB inputs as well as SD cards. 3 LED lamps are included so you can have some lights out camping. There is even an FM radio built in. The solar panel or a standard household outlet can be used to keep this unit charged. This would be a great gift for kids. I wish I had one of these when I was a kid running the banks of the Skagit River!
For the price, this classic Zippo is definitely worth it. For many years Zippo has set the standard for reusable and refillable lighters. This is another item worth considering for small gifts for the holidays. Zippo still seems to get solid reviews despite how inexpensive they have become over the years.
