The Fire Bug is a durable stainless steel key chain embedded with a high-quality, military-grade firesteel, scraper, mylar signal mirror, waxed jute and an x-acto knife. This should be on your snowmachine, car, 4-wheeler, boat or plane.
The Alaska Survival Bracelet is a serious survival tool. It has everything you need to start a fire, no matter how cold or wet the weather conditions. You can then use the paracord to lash together a shelter.
Our firesteel creates a 5000 degree spark. The center strand of the bracelet has waxed jute tinder that will start a fire even when it is soaking wet.

Jute: Jute is a type of twine that we soak in parrafin wax to make it waterproof and allows it to catch a spark and continue to burn even in challenging conditions
Firesteel: Firesteel is a chemically altered alloy using rare earth metals. All firesteel rods are not equal. You can buy cheap firesteel and you get what you pay for. Our firesteel is purchased from the vendor for the US Military. It is the best you can buy. Combine them with the knife-grade scrapers and you get robust sparks
Wear it. Use it. Survive!
Sizing is important for a good fit. Measure the wrist it will be worn on around the bony joint to the nearest 1/4 inch with a piece of string.
