Fire Escape

According to Cairn, the Fire Escape by Outdoor Element is the “first-responder inspired evolution of the award-winning Firebiner multitool carabiner”. Super durable and it has the patented EverSpark fire-starting system which is a perfect addition to any hike or backpacking trip.

Besides the fire starter it also includes a seatbelt cutter, a carbide-tipped glass breaker, an O2 and a hex wrench. Definitely covers a few of the 10 Essential items, and a must-have in the outdoors.

Protein bar

Coincidentally, I had purchased a few RXBARs to take with me on my Garner state park hike, so it gave me a chuckle when I opened this box and saw the exact flavor I bought.

They are made with the ingredients on the front of the package and nothing more. Perfect for fueling before and after a hike, a healthy snack, or even a small meal replacement.

RXBARs feature all-natural ingredients and all natural ingredients, but gotta say a bit on the chewy side. These bars also don’t have any texture to them, so if that’s your thing I’d suggest something else.

The flavors of the banana does come through despite everything being blended together. So if you like the protein from the nuts, but don’t want to fish out chunks of almonds, then this is a great option. Different strokes for different folks.
