The wait for winter is over. Here’s the gear that helped our editors stay warm, festive, and active over the holidays.
Decked X Uncahrted D-Bag Emergency Kit
I'm a big fan of Decked, and have used their drawer system in two trucks now. I love being able to organize my gear based on the season (whether it's time for mountain biking, hunting, or skiing), but also have a place to keep things that live in my truck at all times, like vehicle recovery gear. The company recently sent me their new D-Bag Emergency kit to check out, and it's one of the coolest and most complete survival/emergency kits I've seen. They partnered with Uncharted Supply Co so each soft-sided bag includes one of the brand's Seventy2 Pro Survival systems, along with a Zeus portable jump starter. You get everything you need for two people to survive an emergency situation for 72 hours, including a Sawyer Mini water filter, 2,400 calories worth of energy bars, 100 feet of paracord, a multitool, fixed-blade knife, air filtration masks, waterproof matches, a ferro rod, a complete first aid kit, and most importantly, detailed instructions on how to use it all. With the portable jump starter you have an amazing emergency kit that fits perfectly in your truck's Decked drawer or stows easily in the trunk of your car. Whether you're prepping for a natural disaster, or just want something in your vehicle for emergencies, this kit has you covered. It now lives permanently in the back of my truck. -Bryan Rogala, contributing writer.
