Every once in a while companies send me products to review. This is the second one from Survival Hax. You may have remembered the survival shovel we reviewed back in November of last year. This time they sent me a 10 in 1 paracord EDC survival keychain with waterproof pill bottle.
Very cool. The whole thing is lightweight, compact, and contains some genuinely useful items. Currently, in my bug out bag, I have an Altoids tin survival kit that I put together myself that holds similar items. But it isn’t waterproof, and it takes up valuable space on the inside of my bag. This kit is waterproof. And it has a strong carabiner (a metal loop with a spring-loaded gate used to quickly connect components) on it that I can clip on the outside of my bag which makes it easy to get to, and leaves space in my bag for items that need more protection from the elements.
Paracord EDC Survival Keychain Item List
As you can see from the image there is the previously mentioned carabiner, a nice length of paracord, an emergency whistle, a keychain ring, and a waterproof aluminum pill container. Inside that is:
- Fishing line
- Eye knife
- Cotton tinder
- Fire starter rod
- Safety pins
- Wire saw
Someone took a lot of time to think this product through. I could be stranded in the woods with only this keychain and actually survive. It provides me a way to cut firewood, start a fire, and fish for food. A knife to gut and clean the fish, paracord for making a shelter or snares, and a whistle to alert someone for help.
For the price, this is a pretty cool product. It’d be nice to have a few of them. Maybe one for each car. Try taking one on a camping trip and see what you are able to do with it. Buy a few to give out to friends and family.
