We used the great opportunity od during February's Cold Front in Texas and on the coldest night of that front, we went to test some of our flag Survival Gear. Take a look at our relation and review our rare, top-grade, imported army surplus equipment.
The coldest night:
On February 12, one of our instructors went into the forests near the north Houston area in order to test and review the equipment available in our Great Outdoors Store. He spent the night using only the Dakota fire hole as a warmth source. With the help of a tripod and pot, he also supported himself with hot drinks throughout the night. According to the forecast, the lowest temperature was supposed to be around 12F. But it was much colder. At 1 am, the temperature dropped to 5F. The true crisis came around 5 am, right before dawn. The temperature fell to -1F. Water in the hydration system froze, every sound and movement stopped. The instructor was forced to sleep really close to the fire, practically encircling it with his body.
Our Outdoor Survival Gear Store:
Despite the harsh conditions, the Campsite Accessories provided by our store was able to mitigate many problems. With proper support with survival skills and techniques, the night was quite enjoyable. Without the best quality Survival Gear, the comfort and even safety of the instructor would be endangered. Below, we list which products available in our Army Surplus Store were used during the coldest night in Texas.
