wildernessHaving a dependable pouch and pack when in a questionable environment can make a huge difference. In that small, innocuous pouch may be a knife, matches, compass, light, a cell phone – a few very basic survival tools. When it comes to food and snacks you don’t need to contact your local caterer to make elaborate meals for your trip.

Anything that is rich in nutrients and energy while being compact enough to fit in your bag will do the trick. When you take off for an outdoor adventure, such as a fall hunt, a wilderness photo shoot, or just a day hiking and birding, it’s a must to choose your equipment wisely. A rugged pouch or pack is going to serve you better than one you would pick up to take on a day tour of Paris, for example.
