Highlights

Review

The Deluxe Survival Kit™ from Ultimate Survival Technologies is the first for Montana Test. Packed in a HardCache™ carrying case, inside you will find the SaberCut saw, StarFlash signal mirror, JetStream whistle, BlastMatch fire starter, and WetFire tinder. We tested the WetFire™ tinder and the SaberCut saw, the whistle and mirror both work we did a quick review. What held our curiosity were the WetFire tinder and the SaberCut after using both, we can report here both performed exactly as advertised. The WetFire tinder started immediately when we put a match to it. The SaberCut is incredibly sharp, requires some elbow grease and a few minutes to cut depending on the size of log. We did not test under extreme weather conditions but have no doubt; this Survival kit is necessary for backpackers and big game chasers.


DELUXE SURVIVAL KIT™

The Deluxe Survival Kit™ is a collection of some of the world's finest camping and survival gear. Whatever you do outdoors, (camping, hiking, climbing, fishing, off-roading, etc.) these premier recreational, safety and camping supplies can simplify your life every day, and can help save your life on the worst days.

Components:

BlastMatch™ Fire Starter: Simply put it is the world's finest one-handed fire starter! It generates intensely hot sparks three times hotter than a standard match. Once you’ve tried it you’ll never go back to flint again. BlastMatch™ is safe, easy-to-use, and works in any weather.

WetFire™ Tinder: You will love this amazing fire starting tinder.  It is non-toxic, odorless, smokeless, and you can start a fire even in the driving rain. In fact, WetFire™ tinder burns longer when it’s WET! A small pile of tinder shavings is all you need to start a roaring fire.

StarFlash® Signal Mirror: This signal mirror is unbreakable, can be aimed precisely, floats, and can signal for communications up to 100 miles away. You can use it hiking, camping, or backpacking for communication or signaling, or to apply first aid or camouflage. StarFlash® was chosen as the premier signal mirror of the U.S. Air Force and other government agencies 10 years ago.

JetScream™ Whistle: This whistle is one of the loudest in the world, any louder and it would cause physical pain, literally.  You can hear JetScream's™ amazing 122Db ear-piercing shriek, above most natural or man-made noises. It is equivalent to the sound of a rock concert or a jet at take off. You can use JetScream™ in the city or woods for communication and personal protection.

SaberCut™ Saw: Our revolutionary hand-operated chain saw cuts and clears in both directions, so every stroke eats through whatever you need cut.  Its self-cleaning cutting teeth and custom carrying case make this a must for anyone spending time outdoors hiking, camping, or backpacking. It is ideal for clearing hiking trails or roads when on your ATV or mountain bike.

HardCache™ Carrying Case: Not only is the HardCache™ carrying case watertight, it is virtually indestructible. You can toss it around, sit on it, or step on it! You'll have a tough time damaging it. Keep it in your backpack, your glove compartment, your boat, or even your pocket!  You will always be ready for an outdoor adventure with this survival kit.

WETFIRE™ Fire Starting Tinder

You’ve probably never seen anything like this!  The perfect accompaniment to any fire starter, WetFire™ tinder can help you get a blaze going even in a downpour. In fact, you will find, these amazing cubes actually burn longer when wet!

WetFire™ tinder was born from the need for a universal lighting material that was safe, odorless, easy-to-carry, and unaffected by wind or water. You might not be like the elite military troops for whom is was designed but you can be prepared like them.  If you are into the outdoors and find yourself hiking, camping, or backpacking you never know where you might end up and in what kind of weather. You need something that will light a fire in a rainstorm if needed, but even better are the bonuses of it being non–toxic and extinguishing instantly.

Ultimate Survival Technologies’ WetFire™ tinder is hands down the best fire-starting tinder material available anywhere in the world. It is individually packaged in a lightweight solid cube form that can't leak or foul up your other gear. It leaves none of the residue of inferior petroleum-based products and is non-toxic. The tinder cubes burn without smoke and can be started even in high winds and nasty weather. In fact, the tinder burns while floating in water, and burns longer when wet.

WetFire™ tinder burns at over 1300 degrees yet cools almost instantly when you snuff it out. A small pile of shavings is enough to start a campfire, warm your hands, or pre-heat a backpacking stove. You will always want to have some of these cubes available when you go outdoors.

While WetFire™ was developed for military personnel, but now you can benefit from this amazing fire starting tinder. For decades, mountain climbing meant struggling with gooey fire starting gels trying to light your stove at high altitude. Not only messy, these gels are hard to use. At high altitude you have enough to worry about without wasting energy trying to light an uncooperative stove. With WetFire™ tinder, you won’t ever have this problem again. Just sprinkle a small amount of tinder shavings around the backpacker stove, and it lights instantly. No goo, no mess, no hassle.

Even if you're not in the military, and don't plan to climb Everest, WetFire™ tinder will help you start any fire. Use it to light your backyard barbecue, or to start a fire in your living room fireplace. Be the envy of your friends when only you can start the late night beach bonfire.
