Ok SO this isnt about your survival kit! This is about the most innovative Item you have in your survival kit!

Is it something that has a billion uses? Does it have only one use but does it like no other? Is it something you havent seen Someone else have in their kit before?


For me is the Resist-A-Band. Although Its much like Surgical Tubing I personally never seen anyone else use one in their kit. Its easier to store then surgical tubing aswell and can be cut up in more ways then just a tube.

Uhhhh ok..?

Weights nothing and takes up no space,
Slingshot,
Pole spear,
Multiple tourniquet's when cut up,
Can be used to apply tension to certain types of traps,
Sealing up the ends of clothing to prevent creepy crawlies from getting up your pant legs and such,

Cant really figure out much more then that but really it is a 5 foot by 6 inch band of elastic Im sure theres plenty other uses. The fact that it can be used to make multiple tourniquets for its size and weight sells me on it alone personally.

It might also make nice black smoke when burned in a signal fire.

Mine's probably a large sized blaze orange latex balloon. Signalling (either inflated or in a fire), fishing bobber, carrying water, slingshot, trap cordage, waterproof sock, amusing the kids...

It's either that or my star wars lip balm with detachable lightsabre with LED light, including on/off switch and replacable battery.

The ScotteVest Tactical System V 5.0 is the most innovative piece of EDC gear I ever had. It's a nesting combination of 2 vests with detachable sleeves, which one can accommodate to any kind of weather (0-100F), and which allow to carry a lot of [survival] items (small and large) concealed in it.

They don't make it anymore, but it's a combination of Revolution and Fleece 5.0, zippering one in another.

Never seen them until a local craft store had a bag in a clearance bin and I've never seen them again since. I'm always on the lookout for more.

And I thought wearing carpenters pants with the 2 sidepockets was "high tech" lol Pretty neat.

Sad But My best bet is A trained Search and rescue Team will be able to notice other colors specially a blown up balloon moving in the wind. I wonder how easy to find a pack of Neon colored balloons is I mean blaze orange is just neon orange no?

I bet you're right on both counts Frisket! Neon should be easier to find and just as effective!
