Rocky S2V Provision: A survival kit in a coat

Dan Seitz Contributing Writer, Tech

Winter is coming, and we don’t mean in the Game of Thrones sense, we mean in the “actual snowy freezing cold” sense. In fact, this winter promises to pound a good chunk of the country like it was Manny Pacquiao.

So, if you’re going to be freezing, and especially if you’re going to be, say, camping or otherwise outdoors for long periods of time, you might want to consider buying the Rocky S2V Provision, a jacket with a survival kit built into it.

The jacket itself is quite nice: It’s waterproof and designed to be warm and comfortable for long periods of time, something anybody sweating in a parka knows is important.

But, just as importantly, built into various places on the jacket are a signal mirror, whistle, flashlight, razor saw, medical kit, compass, light stick, and emergency blanket. True, if you’re in the middle of the wilderness, it won’t keep you alive for long, but the idea is to be alive long enough to be rescued.

If that’s not enough survival for you, you also get a “survival grenade,” which bundles together basic fishing gear, a fire-starting kit, a needle, a knife blade, tin foil and wire wrapped in ten feet of paracord. True, the jacket is $600, but it’ll be worth it when you find yourself in the middle of nowhere and need fishing gear.
