What would you do if you found yourself alone in the mountains? Think you've got what it takes to survive? (We're not talking 127 Hours or anything like that - you know better now, don't you?)

It's important to prepare for anything. You never know what kind of emergency you'll find yourself in. Whether you're planning a weekend hike or a two-month escape into the foothills and forests around your home, you'll need everything here to survive like a champ.

Just what tops our faves? It's soon to be one of your faves - the Paracord Knife. Sharp, useful for just about everything, and uber-strong, it comes with paracord (for building tents and rafts) as well as a fire striker. It's your new best friend in the mountains (or canyons, or the woods, or... well, you get the picture).
