Best Glide ASE Desert Operator Survival Kit
The Best Glide ASE Desert Operator Survival Kit was the result of a collaboration between Best Glide ASE and a large Government Contractor for the U.S. State Department. This government contractor needed a compact survival kit to aid their operators in a survival situation. Designed specifically for a short term survival incident in which help is not far away, this kit provides numerous high quality and government approved items to aid in a survival situation under hostile conditions.
The Desert Operator Survival Kit not only includes numerous high quality survival kit items, but also a separate 9" x 6" Military Approved aLOKSAK bag which contains two SOLAS approved water packets. This way you can choose when you want to include the extra weight of the water, or opt to leave it behind when water is expected to not be an issue.
The Desert Operator Survival Kit comes in a Best Glide ASE Ready Five Compact Kit Bag, which is made in the USA of 600 Denier Tough Duck Material and includes a water repellent backing. The bottom has no seam to maximize the strength of the bag. The YKK Self Healing Zippers are double stitched. There is extra room which allows for the addition of several personal items if desired.
