My Problems With The Stealth Angel Survival Kit

canada goose clearance A full emergency kit was one of the first thing I considered when I was building my canada goose outlet in winnipeg EDC gear. It won’t hurt if you have something that will save yourself one day. Like any novice, I was wondering how I will put my kit together. Will I buy one item at a time, or simply buy a whole retailed kit? Fast forward today, my EDC pack is basic; yes, I do carry knives, a multi tool, paracords and even a first aid kit. I even got pens and notes to help me in my daily office tasks. But my friends often say that my gear vastly improved since they last saw what I carried three years ago. No more CCC and mall knock offs!. Slowly putting together an EDC gear one at a time with quality tools is the best approach. One even joked that I never fell for one of those tacticool survival kit they came across in a social media ad. canada goose clearance

Being not a fan of Facebook ads, I often scroll past one if it appears in my feed. What are they saying? I wondered. Until one showed me the actual ad from this equipment store Stealth Angel.

About the Stealth AngelI do have problems with their company name, and we will get to that later. I paid a visit to their Facebook page and website to get an idea on who they are. And canada goose outlet kokemuksia like my friends said, they claim to be the premier site to find essential outdoor and survival equipment. In short, they are an online shop for your outdoor and survival needs. Under their brand, they provide bags, cases, coolers, outdoor gears, flashlights canada goose outlet online store review and optics.

Their survival kit comes in different version, but they became familiar to the online world with their basic EDC kit. Inside a waterproof plastic case is an 8 piece gadget collection of supposedly survival equipment.

First, it has a flashlight. A supposedly professional tactical light, complete with strike bezel. According to them, it could blast a 350 Lumen light. It comes in black.

To complement the flashlight, the kit also has a key chain light rated at 10 Lumens.

cheap Canada Goose Then there is the tactical pen, with a glass breaker carbide tip. Ideal to escape from a wrecked vehicle or as a means of self defense. cheap Canada Goose

To start a fire, the kit also has a ferrocerium rod flint with a striker/ruler/bottle opener.

The kit also comes with a compass and a high frequency whistle.

Lastly is a card multi tool, with canada goose asos uk implements like a saw, can opener and wrench.

Canada Goose Coats On Sale The Items did WorkedThey looked cheap, but at least they work. My friends tested the fire starter and it could canada goose hybridge uk make fire. They had some difficulties but at least it sparked. Like any card tool, they expect the Stealth Angel card tool to be equally awkward. It could open cans and saw woods, but it was clear that it can’t replace a fully functional tool and multi tool (like the Leatherman). The flashlight had a minor problem. The kit didn’t come with a battery (so much for an emergency kit). But then it lighted up once we got a spare battery from the store. The key chain light functioned as well (and it canada goose outlet looked like a kid’s toy) and the same could be said on the whistle. The compass looked basic, but my friends were doubtful about the tactical pen. What they got had tendency to jam when they twisted it open to deploy the writing tip. A few days later and the ink dried. Canada Goose Coats On Sale

They handed me their kit, and after seeing it myself I became equally doubtful.

These are my first concern about their gadgets. Some items inside their black box are clones. The tactical pen is a knock off of a legitimately durable tactical pen, the UZI. The flashlight is a generic gas station light you will get in a mall stall. It resembles the SIPIK SK68 and the identical Ultrafire.

Canada Goose sale Then there is the unbranded card tool. I’m seeing a lot of identical products in the market, and I’m not sure which is legit. Maybe it’s a knock off of the Wallet Ninja brand, but I can’t tell. Canada Goose sale

buy canada goose jacket cheap My biggest concern with these bootleg products is the quality. Sure, they work, but how long? What will happened if they canada goose outlet toronto address got stuck in their box for a long time? Will they work? Will they still work after repeated use? My experiences with counterfeit clone knives gave me doubts on the reliability of the knock offs. buy canada goose jacket cheap

canada goose clearance sale I mentioned earlier that I have problems with the brand name. If I’m a novice buyer and I hear the name Stealth Angel for the first time, I will probably think that they sell weapons and military stuffs. The overly tacticool name will bring this impression that the product is gimmicky. I mean come on, if they are selling survival kits, why made it sounds aggressive. canada goose clearance sale

The outside appearance of their kit is also a major concern. The black box with the aggressive font will make it appear that it is a gun case. Not a canada goose outlet paypal good idea nowadays when people are getting sensitive. Note that the kit has a real weapon inside. The tactical pen is a less than lethal weapon, but it is still a weapon.

I also suggest that they must swap their dark, militarized color to a more readily visible safety color (orange or bright red). If I’m in an emergency and I must reach for my survival kit, the black color will give me problems. In the dark of the night it will be hard to find, and even in daylight if you drop it on a foliage covered ground.

canada goose black friday sale Building Your own KitBut then if you are a novice survivalist, can you build the same, or even better survival kit? Most of the time you must pay more for quality. Through the years I managed to obtain quality blades, like my personal favorite the Ontario Rat 1. I also have a Ganzo multi tool, an Olight keychain light, a whistle plus extra lighters and fire starters. Yes, they cost more, but they are proven tools and I could depend my life on those. But is it possible to build your own survival kit on the same price? canada goose black friday sale

A basic Stealth Angel kit cost 20 dollars. When putting together your own kit, the more expensive items will be the glass breaker, the flashlight and the multi tool. Unfortunately, one really needs to pay more, as a quality flashlight could cost you 20 dollars already. And a multi tool could costs you more. With price aside, I still insist on building canada goose outlet store uk your kit with quality products than buying cheap, but gimmicky packs.
