What are Survival Cards?
They are flat punch-out tools no bigger than the size of a credit card. They’re made of sturdy 301 Stainless Steel and fits right in your wallet.
ReadyMan.com makes these survival cards for all sorts of clever purposes.
Disclosure: They do advertise on our site. I believe their products are unique, and you might think so too. It’s worth checking them out!
I’m not going to list all of their survival cards in detail, you can visit their site for that. But I will give you a taste of what they offer:
The survival cards shown above include:
- AR15 Cleaning Card
- Fisherman’s Survival Card
- Medical Card
- Hostage Escape Card
- Wilderness Survival Card
- Dog Tag Survival Card
There are more, but this gives you an idea of what they are.
Wilderness Survival Card
Lets look at their popular Wilderness Survival Card. It fits in a Wallet or Altoid Tin (Card Size: 2″ x 3.5″ in) and weighs less than half an ounce.
Here’s what’s included:
- Fishhooks (x9)
- Arrows (x5)
- Snare locks (x4)
- Awl (x1)
- Sewing Needles (x2)
- Saw blades (x3)
- Tweezers (x1 – on the right-hand edge)
What makes this tool so uniquely advantageous is that it weighs less than an ounce, yet can replace up to 20lbs of gear!
Put away your bulky fishing lures, that gigantic foldable spear, and awkward hand-saw, and get something that you can carry around in your pocket!ReadyMan.com
Used the fish hooks and saw and they did what they were supposed to do without a hitch.
I used the fish hooks and caught three rainbow trout. The wilderness survival card hooks were sharper than my other brand new treble hooks.
The saw was just used to create myself a fishing pole stand. It was easier to use than I thought it would be which is awesome considering that it’s a saw the length of a credit card and you don’t notice it any more in your wallet than any other credit card.
Its very well manufactured and stays together securely yet easy to take apart.Reviewer from ReadyMan.com
Ken adds: Whenever you can minimize the size and weight of survival gear, you’re more likely to carry it. In this case, these survival cards are one of those things. They’re not a replacement for the real tools, however they will serve during an emergency situation! That’s the idea…
