2020 was a surreal year filled with uncertainty. Even if a vaccine stops Covid in its tracks, we can still be sure that we won’t be sure about much in 2021.
Don’t expect to go back to normal any time soon. Be prepared for whatever comes up. Here is our essential but incomplete list of must-have survival and personal protection gear going into 2021.
Generators & Power Stations
You can count on the sun coming up tomorrow. You can’t always count on your wall outlets to power your refrigerator and other essential items. California has faced record power outages in 2020. The southern states have seen massive hurricanes, tornados, and storms that have left people stranded. These events can happen anywhere, so it’s best to be prepared.

First Aid Supplies
What is the best argument you can make against having a first aid kit? You’re probably stumped, aren’t you? Thought so. Why? Because no matter what you are doing, having a first aid kit can save a life. From a walk in the park, where you can stub your knee, to a day on the water, where you could snag your cheek with a hook. Having the proper medical gear can make an emergency become a traumatic experience instead of a learning survival opportunity.
It doesn’t matter whether your area is due for a natural disaster or whether there are dangerous circumstances all around you. Someone will get injured at some point no matter how safe your environment is, so always be prepared with the right medical kit.
Our favorite one is from MyMedic, a great brand you can trust with your life.

Personal Protection from Violent Attacks
2021 will likely be a very volatile year in the USA. There is large scale civil unrest. Poverty is more common now, and hopefully that’s only for the short term. Opiate addiction is at unprecedented levels.
In times of uncertainty, it’s good to be able to protect yourself quickly and effectively.
Even a difference of one second can save your life in a violent encounter.
The Bungee Rifle Sling is made for ultrafast deployment of your firearm at close quarters. The size is adjustable, and it comes with a quick detach clip. Perfect for the ex-military trained personal, who know the feel of their rifle and automatically reach for it in a hostile situation.
Voodoo Tactical Holsters
We supply a selection of 15 different holsters so that you can find one that meets your needs.
Choose between left-handed and right-handed Glock holsters, leg holsters, waistband holsters, belt slide holsters, and more.
