OAKLAND, Calif. — Adventure® Medical Kits, well known for its first aid and survival gear for outdoor enthusiasts, has announced a sequel to its Pocket Survival Pak with release of the Pocket Survival Pak PLUS.

Designed with survival expert Doug Ritter, who also designed the first PSP, the PLUS kit features many of the same high-quality components that were selected for the original, in addition to new custom designed tools that give users the best shot at surviving a variety of situations in the outdoors.

Along with high quality components for signaling (signaling mirror, triple frequency whistle) and navigating (liquid-damped compass with lanyard ring), the new PSP PLUS also contains additional components for food gathering and gear repair (knife), working at night (flashlight) and collecting and purifying water (collapsible water bag, water purification tablets).

“The original Pocket Survival Pak remains the best survival kit at its price point of under $35, which was our goal,” says survival authority and Equipped To Survive founder, Doug Ritter in a press release. The PLUS version sells for $80.

“… with the PLUS version,” Ritter said, “AMK and I sought to answer the question, ‘what kind of pocket-sized kit could we build that would greatly enhance the serious outdoor enthusiast’s ability to survive, if price weren’t as much of a factor?’ This kit is the result.”

For the new items Ritter and AMK worked with a who’s who of survival and outdoor gear companies, including Columbia River Knife & Tool (RSK Mk5™ fixed blade knife designed by Ritter); Essential Gear (eGear PICO™ Lite LED flashlight also designed by Ritter); Katadyn (Micropur MP1 chlorine dioxide tablets) and Nasco (lab-quality 1 liter collapsible Whirl-Pak® water bag).

“The PSP PLUS is designed for the serious hunter, hiker or backpacker who recognizes the full spectrum of dangers and contingencies that the outdoors poses and wants to be prepared to face them head on,” said AMK marketing director Frank Meyer.

The 5.6 oz pocket-sized PSP PLUS comes housed in a Pacific Outdoor-produced RF welded water-resistant case that also includes a stash pocket on the back. Like all of AMK’s survival and medical kits, the PSP PLUS includes a “Register Your Kit” card, which when activated provides users with refill updates and notices on upcoming sales promotions.
