Special OPs Survival Necklace

Searching for the ideal lightweight survival kit? Well look no further, and if you don't think this is the best lightweight kit on the market...

Are you a Hunter? Camper? Hiker? Cross-country skier? Snowmobiler? Kayaker? Mountain biker? Freelance journalist? Foreign aid worker? Do you fly an airplane? Go sailing or boating? Do you travel often to far away exotic places? Spend a lot of time off the road in remote areas? Are you in the military, or are you planning on going in the military?

Well if you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, then you need a survival kit!

Sure, there are lots of other survival kits on the market, some bad and some pretty good ones too. But I'll betcha none of them cost under $30, weighs 2 oz and comes with these special features.

"S.O.S. Compass"

This compasses is no doubt  reliable & durable, It's a compass you can count on to help guide you through the woods and back home to mommy, or daddy.


"S.O.S Fire Starters"

I know you've heard of a Magnesium Fire Bar, right? Well this is called a Magnesium Fire Rod - it's thinner, lighter, easier to grasp and will produce 1,000s of sparks whether it's wet or dirty. Can't get a spark to ignite your tinder? No problem, just scrape some magnesium shavings from the side, strike the flint and presto � you've got FIRE! You can also use the flint side as a night signaling device too. No doubt this has got to be the most compact, lightweight and multi-purpose fire starter on the market, bar none. Also available but in limited quantities, Four-Finger-Fire Starter, the smallest "spark producing" fire starter on the market.


"S.O.S. Signal Mirror"

It's not the smallest, not that you would want the smallest, would you? Of course not. While small mirrors are nice & compact, they will only reflect sunlight short distances, about a mile or less. Larger mirrors on the other hand may reflect sunlight at greater distances, but where to store and carry'em could be a problem. If they're made of glass or thin plastic, then you got another problem, they're fragile and could break easy.


"S.O.S. Tornado Whistle"

Granted, there are a bunch of whistles on the market that you can choose from, but the worse type are metal whistles and those that come with little balls. Why? Because they freeze up in cold weather due to your moist saliva. This Tornado whistle is ball-less, made of durable plastic and will produce 117 decibels. In other words it's LOUD, and it glows in the dark too. Which means you won't have any problems seeing where you placed your survival necklace at night. Go ahead, shop around and see if you can find a better quality, reasonably priced whistle than this. You won't!


"S.O.S. Knife"

Without a doubt BIG knives do make better survival knives, but this one will still fulfill all your survival cutting needs. Such as sharpening a stick so you can spear fish, fight off wild animals, build traps, prepare game, cut cordage and other survival uses. And it comes with a sharp serrated blade too, meaning it won't dull so easy or quickly. Length: closed 2 � inches, open 4 � inches, blade length 2 �.


"S.O.S. Wire Saw"

Sure, there are lots of other wire saws on the market, but many are NOT what they appear to be. Some have teeth and some don't, and those that don't are NOT survival saws but actually "cut up" spiral saw blades that go to electric saws. Oh, they'll cut through wood alright, like butter, when they're attached to an electric saw and moving at 5,000 rpm. But when it comes to using'em as hand/survival saws, they SUCK! Mine is a "genuine" military survival saw used today by US Army Special Forces, Rangers and British SAS soldiers too. Now if our Special Ops guys use it, it's gotta be good!



Ever heard of a Photon Micro-Lite? If not, do your homework and search the net and you'll see they're considered one of the best mini lites on the market. But they're a bit expensive, they cost about $12. Now if you were to place a real Photon Micro-Lite next to our mini LED lite, I'll be you couldn't tell the difference between the two, except for the price. And it works just as good as the real McCoy too, need I say more?


FACT: If you were to buy these same or similar items from any online military, camping or outdoor supply store, I guarantee they would cost you almost twice the amount when you add in the shipping & handling fees. Don't believe me? Then shop around and see for yourself. The average price that I found these same or similar items selling for, including shipping & handling: genuine survival saw - not less than $10, magnesium & flint fire starter - again not less than $10, a good quality small compass, signal mirror, LED flashlight, serrated folding knife, and Tornado whistle - not less than $5 each. Add it up and it comes out to a total of $45!


































That's right! All these items come with our survival kit for under $25.
Once again you get...

A compass for navigation.

A fire starter for igniting fires.

A whistle for audio signaling.

A serrated knife for prepping game.

And a wire saw for building shelters, fires, and traps.

A mirror for visual signaling.

A flashlight for night use...


The only thing missing is a container for water, a few animal snares, fishing line & hooks and some cordage... most of these items can be easily acquired from almost any household and attached to the necklace. How? Well for example;


Condom - the non-lubricant type, can be used as a water container.


Safety pins - assorted sizes from a sewing kit, can be used as fishing hooks.


Dental floss - green or white, can be used for fishing line, make snare traps, etc.











How do you attach these items to the Survival Necklace?


What you'll need is 2x plastic water bottle caps, a fishing swivel, sand paper, and a very sharp knife or razor. Then (a) take the first bottle cap, cut off the top, and trim/sand the edges until it fits snuggly inside the other, (b) take the second bottle cap and make a short, narrow slit anywhere along the side, (c) insert the "O-ring" portion of the fishing swivel inside the slit, (d) and attach the safety pins (or some real fishing hooks) so the swivel and bottle cap will remain securely together.


Now the secret to squeezing a condom and a bunch of dental floss inside these two little bottle cap containers depends on how well you pack it. The dental floss needs to be rolled up slightly smaller than the bottle cap and the condom, once it's removed from the packaging needs to be "twisted & doubled over" before placing it inside. Then once you have everything in, all ya gotta do is seal the top close with some silicone or crazy glue and let it dry. Is this a great idea or what? But this is just one of many ways you can attach and carrying these items on our survival necklace.










How you can attach some other Survival Items to the Necklace

Tape or silicone the fishing hooks to the backside of the signal mirror and then carefully wrap some fishing line, snare wire, and or some dental floss tightly around it. And if you wanna really make sure it doesn't come off, wrap some strong tape around it too.







And another place you can attach some items is to the whistle. How? All you gotta do is insert 3x fishing hooks inside the three air holes and secure'em in place with a little bit of silicone and carefully wrap a bunch of fishing line tightly around it. Amazing! Ain't it?





















Attach some Fluorescent Orange Tape to the SOS Necklace

And can use it for.

Marking trails.

For signaling.

or as a bandage.









Safety Features


Afraid you might strangle yourself if you got it entangled in something? Well fat chance that'll ever happen, but yea it's possible. And so that's why our survival necklace comes with a "breakaway safety chain" just in case you do find yourself in such an unfortunate predicament. And if you do, just grab the chain firmly with one or two hands and pull it downwards and it'll break apart. (Again, not recommended nor sold to children.)


WARNING: Never wear the survival necklace on the outside of a shirt, always underneath to avoid getting it possibly caught on something. And if you don't like wearing it around your neck, no problem. Then make yourself a "pocket survival kit" and carry the items inside of a....









Soap Dish Container - Plenty of room to store a pocket rain jacket or space blanket inside.


Metal Candy Container - Can be used as a cup to collect rain water from puddles.


Plastic Film Container - Though a bit small, most of the items will still fit inside of it.


Shoe Polish Can - Flat, durable, compact, and should be able to fit quite a bit of stuff inside it.


Plastic Sucret Container - One of many types of containers you can use as a survival kit.







If you really wanna be prepared for the outdoors, pack in your pocket survival kit some of these items too;

Fishing hooks - assorted type, so you can go after the big suckers & small fish too. Fishing line - clear nylon, 6-10 lb test, about 25 yards or more. Wire - preferably the steel type, for making small & medium snare traps. Dental floss - can be used for fishing line, building shelters, etc. Condom - the non-lubricant type, for storing and carrying water. Cotton - great stuff for starting fires, carry a bunch. Nails - the flat head type, use'em for making spears, arrows, etc. Paracord - multi-purpose cord for making bow & arrows, shelters, etc. Slingshot band - for hunting small game and scaring (or pissing off) wolves, bears, etc.





What? You don't wanna carry a survival kit in your pocket? And you don't wanna wear one around your neck neither? No problem! You can attach most of our survival items to a set of car keys, dog tags, jacket zipper, flashlight, knife, and lots of other things too. Check out the photo. Why waste your money on a more expensive survival kit than ours?








ALSO AVAILABLE... 550 Survival Para-cord, braided as shown in the photo. But when it's untied you've got 10 x feet of nylon parachute cord with seven (7) inner nylon strands that can be used for fishing line, constructing shelters, for snaring game and many other uses.



As with any survival kit, it doesn't do any good to own one if you don't know how to use all the items that come with it. And so the only way to learn is to practice, practice, and keep on practicing until you do know how to use all the items.


And to further improve your chances of survival, you should at least review and practice some tips. Such as... how to start a fire, build a shelter, snare game, filter & purify water, expedient signaling techniques and land navigation. And if you wear or carry our survival kit and remember just these few pages, you will no doubt be much better prepared for an unexpected outdoor survival situation.


And what I often like to tell people who venture off the road without a survival kit... "It's better to pack & carry a survival kit and maybe never having to use it than to find yourself someday wishing you had bought one." You know what I mean?


And to all you self-proclaimed "survival gurus" and Johnny Rambo "wannabes" who don't like using a survival necklace... Don't you think it's better to carry a few essential survival items than nothing at all? And if you already own a survival kit, what's wrong with carrying a backup? Especially one that weighs a mere 2 ozs and would be pretty damn hard to lose from around your neck.


Or look at it this way, because it contains the basic minimum & essential items needed for survival, consider it a "Last-Chance-To-Survive" type of survival kit.


And to all you other outdoor enthusiasts who don't believe in carrying survival kits because life & death survival situations only happen to other people. You never know, maybe someday while you're out on one of your outings, you just might find yourself stranded, cold and wet and the only thing that'll save your sorry ass from exposure, hypothermia and dying is our survival necklace.


Think about it, could be the best damn $25 life insurance policy you'll ever own. If not for you, maybe for someone you know, love, and really care about. Makes a great birthday or Christmas gift!




How To Use The...





In case you're wondering "How in the hell are ya supposed to remove the rubber tubing from the wire saw?" You don't, you just saw right through it, peel it off and then throw it away. It's only there to prevent you from being scratched and cut up while worn around the neck.

And the best way to use it is to insert two wooden sticks inside the split rings so you can grasp it better, either as a one or two person hand saw. Or another technique that works well is to attach it to a sturdy, flexible stick so it can be "curved" and used as a handsaw.


As a general wood cutting rule... you shouldn't try to cut anything thicker than your wrist or arm. Why? Because the thicker the wood, the shorter the strokes and the more time you'll waste trying to cut through it. So to save on time, energy, and burning up precious calories, cut only � to � through the wood and then break it the rest of the way with your foot or by slamming it up against a tree or rock. Works for me every time.


Just to give you a fast crash course on how to use one...







(a) Place the compass in the palm of your hand, (b) hold it level with the ground so the magnetic needle can move freely, (c) rotate the compass until the "point" of the needle is directly under the "N" for north, (d) choose a direction you wish to travel in, (e) pick out a distinctive feature in that direction such as a tree, boulder, hill, etc, (f) and walk towards it. And when you arrive at that spot, repeat these same steps over and over and over again until you arrive at your destination.


Now if you're wondering..." What destination? If I'm lost, how in the hell am I suppose to know which direction to go in?"


Well if you're that lost, instead of wandering around in circles like a damn idiot, just pick any direction and use the compass to keep yourself always orientated in that direction until you find or bump into civilization. Or better yet, climb the nearest hilltop or tree to see if you can spot civilization anywhere, roads, houses, etc. And if you do, determine what direction it's in from your present location and then get moving before the sun goes down.







NIGHT NAVIGATION TIP: Unless you're a soldier on a night mission, it's not wise to travel during darkness. But if you must and can't see your compass very well, place it on top of the luminous whistle and then you'll be able to see it much better.








MINI SIGNAL MIRROR: Provided you've got sunlight, lots of it...


All you have to do is (a) hold the mirror in one hand near your cheek, (b) extend the other arm forward, palm facing and then form a "V" with your index & middle finger, (c) then place the target (a helicopter, airplane, ship, etc) in between these two fingers and (d) reflect the sunlight first onto your arm and then up & down in between the "V" and your rescuers should see it.


ANTI-SCRATCH TIP: To protect the mirror from possible scratches so it'll always produce a bright, clear, sunlight reflection. Place a piece of paper around the mirror and then seal it entirely up with tape. Then should you ever need to use it, you don't have to worry about the tape sticking to the mirror and distorting it.



LUMINOUS WHISTLE: Now I'll bet most of ya "think you know" how to use a whistle, right? And I'll bet some of you think it's a worthless piece of crap too, don't ya?
