Henry Arms U.S. Survival Kit

Henry Arms, makers of the AR-7 US Survival Rifle, is now selling a complementary survival kit. Over at our sister site All Outdoor, Frank Stratton reviews the kit

Some things you keep handy just in case something unexpected happens. What if multiple friends show up unexpectedly for a spontaneous pool party at your house? You don’t want to break out the china, crystal, or silver. Just give them the tools to not look like a bunch of drunken Neanderthals squatting over the kill: Dixie cups, paper plates, napkins, and plastic flatware. Give them items that are useful, cheap, disposable, lightweight, and don’t take up much room.

That is a simple analogy for a short term, simple survival kit.

The Henry U.S. Survival kit is a good example of this. It is made by Best Glide ASE for many government agencies law enforcement and military. The items are good quality, made in the USA, and are U.S.Military and NATO approved. This kit contains almost every tool that will be useful when you dump your boat in the rapids or your pack mule runs away. The only items missing are food and water. The tools for getting and carrying these are in the kit.

    Nice kit, other than the wire saw. That thing is worthless. Used on dry lumber it will cut, slowly if at all. Used on any sort of live wood it will gum up and/or bind almost instantly. And it is far too stiff to be used as a small game snare, while too small for anything larger.

    Replace it with a decent length of snare wire and some swivels.

      I’ve had good luck with that type of cheap saw by stringing it on a long stick like a bow saw.

        I’ve had evenly mixed luck. type of wood seemed to matter.
