When you're in an outdoor survival situation, proper protection from the elements is necessity! The Super Bivvy from My Medic is made of waterproof, windproof, and snow proof material to keep you warm, covered, and protected. These are great for a number of survival needs...keeping warm, signaling, first aid, shelters, water collection, and more. Small and light, this bivvy makes a potentially lifesaving addition to your camping gear, survival bag, car, or home. Because the bivvy is reusable, the included carry bag comes with extra space so you can actually get the bivvy back inside! Oh, did we mention that the Super Bivvy is 100% Made in the USA!


Gear Aid Extra Heavy-Duty 1100 Paracord ($14.95)

Having cordage is a staple in survival, bushcraft, prepping etc. And 550 cord has pretty much been the standard in those areas. But how about those larger, more grueling tasks that could use some cordage on steroids? Designed to be durable and strong, the paracord is. for extra heavy-duty jobs at camp or in the field. The 5.5 mm, 16-strand construction, makes it double the strength of 550 Paracord. It's tough cordage that offers less stretch-ideal for securing shelter and gear. Use it to tie down luggage, tarps, tents, or equipment on vehicles, kayaks, and rafts. Its burly thickness allows for easier handling when used as a bear hang, clothesline, boat anchor, and kayak towline. Whether camping, hunting, or paddling, this reflective paracord works hard all day and all night. Paracord is a useful tool to keep adventures smooth and manageable no matter the outdoor location or destination.
