As a wise person once said (okay, the Boy Scouts), you should always be prepared. In 2019, when we can do virtually anything with a smartphone or a wireless connection, it feels silly to carry around a Swiss Army knife at all times. Got a flat tire? You can call AAA or schedule an Uber to pick you up. Power goes out? It’s okay, you’ll still have cell service.
Still, there are some emergencies that even the latest, greatest technology can’t solve. So to make sure that you’re always prepared like the Boy Scouts intended, we rounded up five finds that will help you survive a crisis. Best of all, you can save an additional 15% off each item with the coupon code SEMIANNUAL.
Everyone should have a flashlight in their home, but does anyone put that much thought into shopping for one? If you’re looking to lighten up your home like a pro, you might want to consider this option. UltraBright’s flashlight is made of 500 lumens (you know, so it’s really bright), has a range of light sizes so you can improve your reach, and boasts a tactical end — perfect for any emergency that comes your way. Normally, these flashlights are valued at $100, but you can currently get a two-pack for $17 with code SEMIANNUAL. Now that’s a deal.
They say that two is better than one, but more? Now that’s a shopping miracle. Don’t be fooled by its size: Though Concept180’s multi-tool is small enough to fit on your keychain ring, it has everything— and we mean everything: Rulers, wrenches, bottle opener, wire stripper. Translation? Anything to help you during a big emergency. Right now, you can shave six dollars off the asking price and get it for $21.24 with code SEMIANNUAL.
Compact but cut-throat, Bomber’s tactical pocket knife is perfect for slicing and dicing almost anything, which is perfect for creating an impromptu campsite or bonfire. This find has a strong grip and 1.4-inch tanto blade that makes it possible to get a swift, clean cut. And thanks to its assisted opening mechanism, you can whip it out at a moment’s notice. At $29.75 with code SEMIANNUAL, this knife is over 50% off.
Got a light? Enter Plazmatic’s VEO USB lighter. This slim and sleek lighter is easy to use, environmentally friendly, and butane-free, which means you can light a candle or incense without an unruly flame.

And, when your lighter runs out of juice, it has a USB port so you can power it up in a mere 60 minutes. This lighter normally costs $44, but you can get it for $31.44 with code SEMIANNUAL.
