The SOL Survival Kit by Origin is intended as an all-in-one survival pack that can be stored in a pannier bag or glove compartment, then forgotten about until that rainy day comes around and you find yourself needing it.
Each kit contains an AUS-8 stainless steel knife, a signal mirror, a Fire Lite magnesium striker, a 100db whistle, a 10 lumen LED torch, a removable directional compass, a waterproof compartment, 150lb-test braided nylon cord, mil-spec stainless steel wire, an emergency sewing and fishing kit, foil, TinderQuik tinder and a survival instructions booklet written by Buck Tilton.
