Priorities in a survival situation: escape the elements, stay warm, and signal rescuers so you're easy to find.
The Scout has you covered on all fronts: a heat-reflective 2-person blanket provides warmth and shelter from wind, rain, and snow, while the one-handed Fire Lite striker and waterproof tinder produce multiple campfires.
A 100dB rescue whistle and signal mirror with retroreflective aiming aid make it easy for you to signal your position to rescuers; and a compass, duct-tape and fishing/sewing kit round out the package.
A professional-grade RF-welded waterproof bag keeps contents dry in any conditions.
