5 Items Under $5 That YOU Should Have In Your Daypack [Part 2]

Whistle / Compass – $2.49:  Both a whistle and a compass are invaluable survival tools that you should always have on hand when heading into the backcountry. A good whistle can alert fellow skiers and/or rescuers of your location if you find yourself injured or trapped in a tree well. A compass will keep you on a true heading and will prevent you from losing your way. widgetsupply.com

Mirror – $3.75Mirror flashes can be seen for many miles even in hazy weather. This will allow you to attract attention and allow rescuers to pinpoint your position. REI

Moleskin – $2.60Few things will ruin a day skiing in the backcountry faster than a nasty blister. Entire groups can be brought to a crawl due to an individual suffering from a crippling blister. Ducktape will work well in a pinch but nothing is better then some old fashion moleskin. theonlinedrugstore.com

Light Sticks – $1.39: If the sh*t really hits the fan on a backcountry mission there is a good chance you are going to have to hunker down for the night. Having a couple of light sticks will not only allow rescuers to locate you in the dead of night but will also provide you with a huge psychological boost. homelandpreparedness.com

Nutrition Bars – $3.89The human body runs on fuel and when that fuel is gone your engine stops working. Having a few nutrition bars in your pack can provide you with much needed energy to keep your body moving. Most skiers enjoy snacking on their supplies so you might want to keep some tasty CLIF Bars and Shot Blocks. However, if you really want to get serious about emergency food supplies buy some 2400 Calorie ER™ EMERGENCY READY Food Ration Bars (US Coast Guard Approved). These really pack a punch and will provide survival victims with 72-hours of food supply and are guaranteed to stay good for 5-years even in extreme conditions. quakekare.com
