Kayak Review Guide: Our Choices For The 3 Best Kayaks Of 2019

In all the survival scenarios, you need to know that not every time you will travel on land. There are times where you will have to get from point A to point B by a boat, or a kayak. Since boats are quite big, having a kayak is much more practical, and they’re a lot cheaper to buy. Kayaks can help with many things, it doesn’t just get you from one place to another, you can use it to fish (and there will be plenty of times when you’ll have to fish!). It’s much more efficient than riverbank fishing, and when you’re done, you can simply take it out of the water, and leave no trace that you were ever there.

Foraging, scouting, and relocating are all valid reasons why you need to purchase a kayak if you want to become fully prepared when you need to bug out. For foraging and scouting, it’s always advisable to have different methods of transport, if you need to go and do your job quickly, using a kayak for transportation will make things much more manageable. While for relocating, it’s always a good idea to keep your bug out bag on your kayak, so that if you have to run and not think, at least you know that everything is ready for you to move.
