When you’re in trouble in the great outdoors and desperate, you’ll see the value and usefulness of everyday things and use them in ways that you normally wouldn’t. Don’t let it get to that point, though, and be better prepared for the unexpected instead. One way to do that is by using these survival shoelaces on your shoes instead of the regular kind.
Each one comes packed with a mini survival kit inside: a fishing line, tinder, and a ferro rod, which you’ll need to start a fire when you don’t have a match or lighter. Sure, you’ll need more than this to make it in the wild, but it’s a good start.
They’re available online starting at $15.
