The Survival Grenade by The Friendly Swede is designed to be a compact survival kit that’ll help you light a fire, catch food, signal for help and set up a shelter. Each kit contains a needle, wire, aluminium foil, tinder, a fire starter, fishing lines, fishing hooks, weights, and swivels – and it’s all wrapped in 9 feet of 500 lb paracord.
Each Survival Grenade measures in at 0.5 x 3.3 x 7.6 inches – meaning it’ll easily fit in a pannier, glove compartment, rucksack or pocket – and at $10.99 USD it won’t break the bank.
