>> Kodiak Survival Pack Update :: By J. Marshall Stanton on 2002-02-04
Print This Open Sight | Share This Open Sight
The Kodiak Survival Pack is by far the most practical, light-weight and highest quality product of its kind on the market; designed, manufactured and assembled by Northstar Survival Inc.

This self-contained survival pack contains most of the immediate necessity items for short-term survival in an unexpected survival situation. The selection of these items for the pack comes from experience, years of actual, hands on survival experience. Dave Watkins, owner and founder of Northstar Survival Inc., with a military career of 20 years - 6 in the Marines ( 2 Vietnam tours), and the last 14 in Coast Guard aviation ( with the last 6 as chief instructor at Kodiak survival school) where he trained SEAL teams, and having actual hands on survival and rescue experience almost exclusively in the harsh environment of Alaska.

Each item in the pack meets or exceeds the standards set by, and used by current Navy SEAL teams. The unique custom designed case for the survival gear allows an at-a-glance inventory the pack, and makes each item instantly accessible. The kit comes in black, blue, blaze-orange and camouflage colors with optional integral belt loops.

Within the pack are numerous necessity items, including a whistle, genuine GI issue glass signal mirror (a hard item to find these days), fishing kit, magnesium fire-starter, wax impregnated fire-tinder, blaze orange signal banner, long burning emergency candle, waterproof match container with striker on the bottom, medical supplies, hot drink mixes, water purification tablets, Penguin flashlight, ultra-strength nylon cordage, plastic tarp material and a medical treatment guide.

Among those items in the Kodiak Survival Kit, the GI issue signal mirror is a gem. These genuine military spec, glass survival mirrors have become a scarce commodity in recent years. They are also available as an individual item from Northstar Survival. (click on photo)

The magnesium fire-starter is another sometimes difficult item to locate when putting together a survival pack, and is a must-have item. It too is not only included in the Survival pack, but as a component item as well.

Extremely simple, well thought out, and very light in weight, the Basic Fishing Kit supplied in this kit is another essential not to be forgotten in any comprehensive outdoor related survival gear. It contains all the necessary basics.

The Pelican light included with the Kodiak Survival Kit is arguably the most reliable of sub-compact pen-lights available today. Perhaps this alone accounts for their use by elite U.S. military teams. The light operates on AAA batteries, and is very efficient. Also available as a single-item from Northstar. (click on photo)

The Kodiak Survival Kit is exceptionally well thought-out, laid-out, and covers the essentials of an emergency survival collection, while being extremely portable, weighing just under a pound total weight!

Seldom have we seen such versatility and quality in one well-executed package in regards to survival equipment. This isnít a comprehensive long-term survival pack, it is a superbly done bare-minimum essentials kit.

Northstar also offers each of the component parts of its Kodiak Survival Kit as individual items as well.
