Any chance you’d do an article on home generators for emergencies like power failures? As someone with friends in California’s wildfire areas where the blackouts are *still* ongoing, it’d be nice to get some good recommendations for a care package I’ll be sending their way.
Out of sheer curiosity, when it comes to packing clothes in your BOB, how many days change of clothes would you recommend? Any specific brands of survival-ish or just plain tougher shirts and pants you’d recommend?
Also, on a side note, would you consider making an article/reviews on bulletproof helmets? Are they even worth it for preppers, or is that more just for military/combat use? If they are worth it, what would you recommend?
This might seem random, but while I keep my vest at home, I keep my bug-out bag with me everywhere (at work, in the car, in restaurants, at home, etc) and something that I worry about every day is an active shooter situation. What would you recommend if I wanted a backpack plate – one I can easily remove once I have my vest and don’t need the extra weight – that could easily make an improvised vest via wearing the backpack on front or back during an active shooter situation?
So I’ve begun my research into tourniquets with this article (obviously) and on Amazon I found a kit that perplexed me to say the least. The, “One Hand Tourniquet Combat Application First Aid + Trauma Shear+ Molle Pouch” tourniquet kit from “ASA Techmed” has what looks like a perfect set – the picture shows a CAT-7, decent-looking holder, and even medical shears. One thing you’ll notice very quickly makes me skeptical – the $14 price tag. Not only is it cheaper than the CAT-7 by itself, it’s dramatically cheaper than the combined cost of the CAT-7, Tourni-Quick holder, and shears. So the obvious question arises, despite the lower price and seemingly-same equipment, is this kit worth buying?
