Survival Tip: Wear Clothes to Be Seen

If you ever watch survival shows on television, you'll see that the smallest of decisions can make a big difference.  Take clothing for example.  The survival shows always seem to feature people hiking off into the woods wearing clothing that is in muted earthy tones of green, brown, tan, and gray.  These tones that make the wearer feel like they are one with nature also help them blend into nature.

A simple wardrobe change can make a hiker much more visible.  If you must have earthy tones, consider wearing something that is reversible and provides a blaze orange option.  For example, this Buckshot Polar Fleece Reversible Hunting Jacket provides a camouflage on the outside, but is also reversible to provide orange on the outside.  If you are hiding from zombies and bandit, the camouflage option is just great.


However, if you've wandered off a trail, gotten totally lost, and haven't seen anyone for days, blaze orange will come in handy when you are jumping up and down on a hill top hoping to be seen by a plane full of tourists.  It's just the smallest of clothing changes, but it could be a life saver!


Jackets aren't the only thing that is reversible, you can always add a reversible hat.  If you don't go for reversible, just remember that red, orange, and yellow can save a fellow!
