Any avid outdoorsman understands the potential pitfalls of spending extended time in the wilderness. That’s why the wise man typically keeps some semblance of a survival pack with him when trekking through the backcountry on either foot or on wheels. However, survival packs can get large and cumbersome at times, reducing their utility in the process. It’s this inconvenience that Surf City Paracord had in mind when designing their M-550 Pro Bugout Frag.
Outfitted to fit in the palm of your hand, the M-550 is a miniature survival pack shaped like a frag grenade but made from 45 feet of 550 paracord. Don’t let its size fool though. Each “grenade” packs a hefty amount of key survival tools that will help you start fires, build shelter, purify water and even signal for help. A few of the many items you’ll find inside include a compass, Ferrocerium fire starting rod, fish hooks, tripwire, water purification tablets, can opener, stormproof and waterproof matches, a wire saw, and a dog tag signal mirror for starters. The Bugout Frag is also buoyant, waterproof and lightweight so you can always come prepared should nature take a turn for the worst.
