You can’t beat mother nature. No one can. When you’re in the wild, things can go from good to bad in a matter of seconds. You can come face to face with a bear. You can get lost. Dehydration, hunger, infections, rockfalls, avalanches, injuries, all of them can put an end to your adventure, or worse, to your life.
It’s all fun and games until it’s not… and when shit hits the fan, you need to be prepared. Your survival kit needs to be equipped with tools for any situation. And most importantly, it needs to be equipped with the most under-rated survival tool of all time - the emergency waterproof sleeping bag.
Why? Because that small bag can make the difference between survival and death. It can save you from the number 1 danger in the wilderness. Something that kills over 5000 people every year in the United States alone.
The Cold. More exactly, hypothermia.
