When you think of Walmart, I’m sure the first items that pop in your head are, “survival kits”. Despite it being Walmart, they actually do have a couple of survival kits that are worth the money. One is the 12 in 1 emergency kit.
This article will tell you about the 12 in 1 Walmart survival kit. Everyone should have an emergency kit with the basics at the very minimum. Most people don’t. Most people will never prepare for future emergencies. With such an inexpensive kit like this one, there’s no excuse. Here’s what the kit contains.
- 11.1 multi-function knife card:
- 3.5″ X 1″ Multitask flashlight
- Firestarter tool and bottle opener
- Thermal emergency blanket
- Glow in the dark compass
- Key-Ring with a miniature flashlight
- Survival bracelet
- Alcohol pads and band-aids
- Comes in a small shock and waterproof box
Making It Useful
You will be surprised when you look at the box. It is about the size of a credit card. It is a little thicker than a credit card. You can hook the kit onto anything with a loop. The kit is easy to carry so you can grab whatever you need real quick if you need too.
Many of the items are multi-functional with special features. The 5.9″ pen can be used for writing notes. If you get lost in the wilderness, you can leave a note for someone. You can leave a message for your friends if you leave the campsite. Write down the time, what you are going to do, and what time you expect to be back. It should not take 3 hours to go pick some berries. Always include the time on everything you write down.
The emergency kit contains a survival bracelet that is packed with functionality. You can blow a whistle, start a fire, see what direction you are going in, and scrape a tree branch. And of course, the bracelet itself is made of paracord. There are dozens of uses for paracord that every prepper recommends to have, especially if you learn how to tie knots that could be life-saving in a survival scenario.
I was really fascinated with the multi-tool. It looks like just a piece of silver flat metal. The knife card can open a can, screw in a screw, tighten anything you would use a screwdriver for, or saw a tree branch. It has a ruler on one side. It can really help you when you learn how to use the features.
A thermal emergency blanket comes with the kit. It looks like a piece of aluminum foil. It is heavier duty than aluminum foil. You would use it in a medical situation. It retains 90% of your body heat if you need it.
A raincoat and sample size container of sunblock could be added to the kit. Sunburn can happen in 45 minutes. A bad sunburn can occur in only 30 minutes if you do not have a tolerance to the sun. I know there are a lot of trees at campsites and hiking trials where this kit would be used.
The kit is there for an emergency. Anything can happen. Getting quick access to sunblock can prevent bad sunburn.
Is It Worth it?
The 12 in 1 Multi-functional Survival Box sells on Walmart for a reduced price. The kit is well worth the low price and can be useful for not just wilderness adventures, but everyday life. The items are useful even when barbecuing. Even if you just took the paracord bracelet from the kit, you could have hundreds of hours of DIY practice making paracord projects.
$100 Walmart Survival Kit?
I saw this video that was recently done by DropForgedSurvival on a survival kit he got from Walmart.
I have seen the survival gear at Walmart before. It’s where camping and fishing equipment is. I don’t remember seeing anything special, maybe I was at the wrong Walmart because this kit seems like it’s actually worth the money.
The kit he got costs roughly $100 and you’ll be shocked on a couple of the items he got in the kit.
Watch the video below.
What would you expect from a $100 survival kit from Walmart? Do you think it would be worth it? I didn’t until I saw this video.
