Travel restrictions are sweeping the world, and now is the time to gather any last minute supplies. We asked 3 combat Veterans, of various branches each, what their top essential survival items were. We consolidated the three top answers and have listed them below:


Survival Jetpack

Foremost, this is clearly a no-brainer. One should always have a jetpack, and more importantly plenty of fuel on reserves. If you need to make a quick escape: boom jetpack. Heard toilet paper is restocked and you need to beat the rush? Boom, jet pack. A British company named Gravity Industries has been testing one with the Royal Special Forces. In other words, "If your jetpack is good enough for the Queen, it's good enough for me!"

Super Essential Flame thrower

Secondly, imagine how much cooler a jetpack would be if you had a flame thrower. You could do napalm style runs over targets. However, this must have item is a bit more regulated. The Boring Company was selling theirs for around $500 each, until they sold out.“Flamethrower, (obviously) best way to light your fireplace/BBQ,” said billionaire Elon Musk. This dude is a genius so we'll take his advice. It would be a total power move to embarrass rival dads too.

Can't leave home without it Hydration bladder

Wielding flames and soaring through the air is a surefire way to become dehydrated. Surely, we can not allow that to happen. It's important to have hands-free hydration on the go. This may not be as flashy as the other two, but we trust you can see how important it truly is. After all, it can also be filled with whiskey at the end of the day to keep the party going.Let us know what your "must have" survival items are below in the comments, and maybe we'll do a part two with the best answers!
