Planning a wilderness adventure? Fancy yourself as the next Ray Mears? You’ll need a few survival essentials in your armoury then – and we could well help you out with this month’s competition.
The kind folks at distributors Whitby & Co have given us some top kit from two of their outdoor brands, eGear and Ultimate Survival Technologies, to give away to one lucky reader. So what we got? Well, first up is the B.A.S.E. Bug Tent from UST, which will keep out the tiniest of insects and can be used in conjunction with a tarp to give the ultimate jungle set-up. Weighing in at just 567g, the tent features shock-corded fiberglass poles for quick assembly, and its bottomless design makes it compatible with any sleeping bag or mat.
Next up is the Pico LED lantern, a compact, super-bright lantern for backcountry and emergency use. Available in 5 colors, plus a glow-in- the-dark version, the Pico runs for 91 continuous hours and provides 120 lumens in high mode and 15 lumens in low mode. Finally we have the ultra-compact and compressible eGear Survival Towels, and for emergency use there’s the eGear Base Kit which includes everything from a firestarter to a compass, whistle and waterproof storage bag.
