The 14 Day Lantern – 14 days of continuous light on four D batteries

lantern 14 days

The 14 Day Lantern.

This is the lantern that provides 14 days of continuous light on four D batteries. The lantern’s LEDs use a fraction of the energy of traditional bulbs, allowing them to produce 160 lumens of bright light for 336 consecutive hours on the lowest setting (175 hours on high). Its cylindrical design provides 360º of unimpeded illumination, and the bulbs produce almost no heat, making the lantern safe for children and uninteresting to insects. The lantern has a durable waterproof case and it will remain buoyant and operational if dropped in water. An integrated handle ensures ease of portability and can also be used to hang the lantern for hands-free lighting. Requires four D batteries.

Survival Kit in a Sardine Can

survival kit sardine cansurvival kit sardine can contents

Sardines come packed in metal tins and even though they are a good source of omega 3 fatty acids, they are still oily and kind of funky smelling. No offense to any fans out there but we feel the metal tins could be put to much better use.

Here we have a genuine air-tight, waterproof, crushproof sardine can packed full of 25 survival items. Go fish with the hook and line, find your way home with the compass, boil water in the can for your tea and sugar, use the first aid supplies to survive the wilderness. Since being well prepared is half the challenge, you’ll have a good head start with this kit. Put one in your car, boat, motorcycle, fishing vest, backpack, bike, emergency kit, etc.

The kit includes one of each of the following items: non-aspirin pain reliever, adhesive bandage, alcohol prep pad, antibiotic ointment, book of matches, compass, chewing gum, sugar, salt, energy nugget, duct tape, fire starter cube, first aid instructions, fish hook & line, note paper, pencil, razor blade, safety pin, reflective signal surface, tea bag, waterproof bag, whistle, and wire clip.

Grilliput Camping Set – smallest and most portable BBQ

grille

The smallest and most portable BBQ on the planet. Is this or is this not the most brilliant invention ever invented by someone who goes around inventing things? The Grilliput, with a literary nod to Mr. Swift, is a travel BBQ that fits in your pocket! Aptly named the Grilliput, this ridiculously compact camping grill is about the cleverest piece of design we’ve seen in an age. At only 29cm long and 2.2cm wide you can stash it anywhere, and when you’re feeling peckish open it up into a 23×26cm BBQ, plonk the Firebowl underneath it and hey presto! No more lugging hefty BBQs out to the park, into the woods or down to the beach, just pop the diminutive Grilliput in your back pocket and you’re sorted. Made from high quality stainless steel it’s completely dishwasher friendly, and even has a cleaning groove notched in it so you can scrape off the grill before you pack it up in its tiny solid tube.

The Firebowl is a great companion to the Grilliput. It is a mobile, compact and collapsible hearth with 4 stilted feet, enabling you to light a fire anywhere without scorching the earth. The adjustable fins also allow you to create a chimney effect so that heat can be directly aimed at the desired point. The Grilliput and Firebowl are innovative space miracles for minimalists, and quite simply the best mobile BBQ kit ever to hit the planet.

Buy the Grilliput and Firebowl seperately or as part of a set. Either way they’re sure to make your next camping trip a roaring success
