This product is priced very reasonably if you consider how valuable it could be for you or loved ones in a crisis. You don't want to regret not having it if you need it someday. Just the map files alone would cost you over $100 but you're getting it printed on Tyvek with military specifications (MILSPEC). To see more detailed info about what's included on an ESC, let's take a walk in the Texas woods.
In Part 2 below, I show you some more information included on an ESC. I also demonstrate an excellent fire kit that uses only sticks for fuel. There will be more gear recommendations and tutorials like this added in the future.
Finally, in Part 3 below, I am hit with a rainstorm and I demonstrate another use of the ESC... as an emergency shelter.
Four 1:250,000 scale, full color, topographic maps. To give you an idea of the size, it would take about 12 ESCs to cover the entire area of Texas. These highly detailed maps are excellent for on road or off road vehicle travel and can be used on foot as well. Topographic maps include major features like developed areas, transportation networks, infrastructure, landmarks & cultural features, topography, hydrography and vegetation. Additionally, ESCs include aeronautical and sometimes nautical information (if in coastal areas) important to aviators or ship captains.
If you were to buy these maps individually, they would cost you over $100... even just printed on normal paper.
In the map margins, each ESC also has customized survival information for the areas they cover. It can be divided into the sections listed further below. Several physical uses for the ESC are also described.
