Flashlights have come a long way in the last few years. I remember going on field training exercises in the Army, carrying a two-cell right angle flashlight and trying to see with it.

4 Ways to Waterproof Your Survival Gear

4 Ways to Waterproof Your Survival Gear

One of the biggest fights you will have in a survival situation is staying dry. Wet feet are a recipe for disaster. Walking long distances with wet feet will result in raw skin that could become extremely dangerous. Back in the first world war, soldiers suffered from something referred to as trench foot. It resulted in tissue death on the foot, which quickly became a serious, life-threatening issue. You could end up losing a leg caused by an infection from trench foot. A minor blister in a survival situation can quickly become very serious and make it very difficult for...
