Have you ever been stranded (even in the middle of your own city) with a broken down car in less-than-ideal weather? Or stranded on the freeway? What about a back road?
We’ve talked about winter travel and winter safety before, so for this week’s giveaway we want to give you some specially selected items that will help you stay warm, dry, and fed if you have to deal with car problems in rain or snow.
These items were chosen because they can give your current auto emergency kit a boost—or give you a jumping off point for putting a kit together. (Don’t have an auto kit yet? The Roadwise Emergency Kit is a great option.)
Whether you already have a car kit, or you’re still working on it, this will give you some great items to round it out and keep you safe, warm, and fed if you get stranded on the road.
These items were specially selected just for this giveaway (and most are on sale this month!):
Auto Tool Kit - $14.99 in January ($31.69 value)
Includes locking pliers, an adjustable wrench, a 6-in-1 screwdriver, long-nose pliers, leather/canvas gloves, and emergency tape.
3600-calorie S.O.S.food bar- $5.69 January only ($7.95 value)
These food ration bars have a nice flavor and are high in calories to give you the energy you need while waiting for help.
- $12.99 this month (normally $14.95)
Keeping warm while stranded in the winter will require staying dry. This hooded blanket/poncho can help keep you protected from the elements.
Warmth Emergency Kit - $11.95 (valued at $14.92)
These hand and body warmers will help keep you warm until help arrives. 172 hours of total warmth.
Glow Stick – on sale this month for $2.99 ($6.49 value) – available in Red, Blue, Green, or Multi
This glow stick can help provide light without worrying about matches, and will flash for over 200 hours—a great option for signaling your location to rescuers if you get stranded in the dark.
