It’s that time of year again! Where we look at the last 12 months and highlight the best survival and outdoor gear available. We pull the data on the top-selling products of the year as well as those with the best 5-star reviews. Being one of the top-selling websites of survival/outdoor gear we’re able to see a lot of the trends before the market has picked up on them. And yes, everything on the list is “staff approved” meaning we at Survival Frog get to take them home and play with the gear listed here before we add it to our annual gift guide. So here’s the 2019 list…
