Each win a 30 SOL Origin Survival Kit.
We have 30 SOL Origins, the survival kit from Adventure Medical Kits up for grabs.

And, for those unfamiliar with wilderness survival, backcountry expert Buck Tilton's survival instructions contain over 60 survival techniques and strategies.
SOL Origin. Survival Kit from Adventure Medical Kits #4
© Burton McCall, Apr 2011
However, the body of the case is really what sets the Origin™ apart - integrated into the lid is a flip-up Rescue Flash signal mirror with retroreflective aiming aid. Flip the case over, and find the one-hand-operable Fire Lite firestarter, as well as a removable liquid-damped compass. Finally, secured in a button-release slot is a fully-functional folding blade knife, with a 100db rescue whistle and ultra-bright LED light integrated into the knife handle. The AUS-8 drop-point blade has been designed for the precision cutting you need during survival emergencies, and it excels at slicing, whittling, and any task where blade control is essential.
Put it in your rucksack pocket and it is there when you need it.
