Get good and sound advise on torch lights from Mr Dannie Chua of Radiant Den
Get good and sound advice on torch lights from Mr Dannie Chua of Radiant Den

Someone asked me recently where to buy every day carry- EDC torch lights in Malaysia. Torch light in my opinion is one of the most important EDC, prepper, survival and self defense tool there is. In almost any imaginable survival scenario, day will turn into night and being able to see in the dark puts you in a better advantage to survive. Having said that, not all torches are created equal (as with cars, packs, knives etc). So, if you wanna receive good and reliable advise on what torches to buy, you may want to check out my ‘go to guy’ for torches, Mr Dannie Chua of Radiant Den.

No matter if you are a prepper or an outdoorsman, the 550 paracord is an indispensable piece of kit you must have
No matter if you are a prepper or an outdoorsman, the 550 paracord is an indispensable piece of kit you must have

Almost all preppers I know in Malaysia will own at least a few hanks of 550 paracords in their kit. Paracords compliments prepping in many ways. They are strong, has tonnes of uses, and relatively cheap. I carry paracords on a daily basis. The ones I carry may vary in length and color but I have them in my EDC pack, on my car keys, my body (wrist), on my shoes, my knives and just about any nook and corners that I can keep them.

Failed ITW Tac Link & retired climbing carabiners

The Tac Links by ITW makes great key holders
The Tac Links by ITW makes great key holders

Imagination if probably the limit to the number of uses for the ITW Tac Links. While the story goes that they are made for tactical use, I use a bunch of them mostly as key chains. Sporting some really bright (orange and even yellow) colors and weighing close to nothing, they really do make ideal key holders. Cheap (round RM15 to RM20 each), they are easy to spot and certainly looks cool all around.
