Local favorite Mikhail Merkurieff has a new survival shelter project on kickstarter that just crossed into the funded category.
I’m a big fan of some of the previous projects he’s done (especially the nice Cabuya Handlines) and I think this is one that is going to be living in one of my kits for sure. The basis is a stronger, lightweight emergency shelter for winter conditions.
I’m sure many of us have used various mylar blankets, or other products to maximize warmth in bad conditions, and make no mistake they can help. However, there are limitations in most existing commercial products that this product is designed to address. Check out the video, and give it a kick.
I’m really excited to try out the heat capture, which should give large benefits over the basic practice of directing the opening of a shelter to the heat source. A little less smoke, and a lot more contained warmth would be very welcome. Getting it in a lightweight package that won’t be destroyed just by using it once is even better.
If you’ve missed previous kickstarters for other folding ultralight stoves, you have one more chance now. Utah local Mikhail has a new Kickstarter for his FireAnt Titanium Stove. Check it out here:
Also, no need to worry about this project funding, as that only took 6 hours. The price is extremely good for titanium, so worth getting in on the early pricing. Ultralight stoves like this and the Folding Firebox are excellent things to keep in your bags, since they can run on scraps compared to a large fire. They help leave far less traces at your campsites, and use much less fuel to get you what you need.
I’ve already kicked for one, and if you don’t already have a folding stove, you really should take the opportunity on this great deal. Continue reading “EmberLit FireAnt now on Kickstarter”
One of my favorite prepper toys over the last couple of years has been my Firebox. A small folding stove made here in Utah by a local businessman. It’s been a wonderfully useful little folding stove, although sadly one of my scouts just lost the two pegs (hey guys, do you sell those individually?).
Now even better news. While small and somewhat light, it hasn’t fit the “ultralight” category that can be really nice. But now there is a new product coming out. Check it, and jump over to kickstarter and pre-order this thing.
Right now my decision is just what level I want to kick it at. If you look they have upgraded packages that include carriers, stable fuel, combos with the 5″ classic version and more. Don’t miss this discounted chance to get an excellent stove.
