The Survival Grenade Could Save Your Life

Survival Grenade



Who would’ve thought that a grenade might just save your life when you’re stranded or lost in the great outdoors? Not the ones that go boom but rather, the Z.A.P.S. Gear Survival Grenade. Designed by a marine scout sniper, the “grenade” is actually an uber-compact survival kit that contains things you’ll need to get by when you’re stuck in the wilderness: a steel shackle, compass, wire saw, snares, fire starters, fish hooks, knife blades, Ziploc bags, a whistle, and water purification tables, among other things.

It also comes with a user’s guide so you’ll know what each one is for and how to use them, should the need arise.

The Gear Survival Grenade is available online for $75.

Drum Kit Vest

This isn’t the first time someone decided to create a wearable drum set, but this is the first time they actually did it right.

Zombie Survival Kit Prepares You for the Apocalypse

Zombie Survival Kit

A couple months ago, reports of an impending zombie apocalypse went rampant. Aside from people getting into a zombie frame of mind because of shows like The Walking Dead, news that someone had chewed off a homeless man’s face didn’t help either. Paranoid people began putting together survival kits in case one really hit, while others decided to sell these kits instead to make a few quick bucks–like the enterprising folks of ThinkGeek.

I’m sure you’re aware that there’s no zombie apocalypse in the near future, but in case you’re still worried, then this well-put together kit will provide you the basic things you’ll need to survive one. At least for a couple of days. You’ll find the SOG Tactical Tomahawk in the mix, along with some Zombie Jerky and a Survival Kit in a Sardine Can that contains 25 essentials for your survival.

The entire kit retails for $79.99 on ThinkGeek.
