I’ve watched the TV show Survivorman enough to know that in a survival situation, sometimes having the right tool can mean the difference between life and death. The folks at SlideBelts know this too. They took their already innovative no-hole belt design and are amping it up with new survival-type features in a crowdfunded Kickstarter campaign. In addition to the highly-adjustable and interchangeable no-hole design with bottle opener hidden in the buckle (features present on all SlideBelt styles), the Survival Belt is slated to include—depending on the campaign’s funding total—a super durable, high-strength polymer strap, a fire starter, a multi-tool and a GPS tracker. Batman, eat your heart out. Buckles will be available in stainless steel silver or polymer matte black and straps will be available in a variety of adventure-style colors. Rewards start at $49 for the base belt and increase in price and features from there. Hike over to the Kickstarter campaign for details, but double-time it, because the campaign ends September 20, 2014.
