    So, over 1/3 of these are gone. The lightweight Multi-cam will not be offered again.

    These things are killer useful.

    I carry mine on my belt in a leather pouch beside my knife.

    It's a lot bigger than one expects.

    The uses are numerous but one of the best applications for me is the collection of materials. While my belt has two other collection bags on the left side that are large in size they simply don't compare to the signal sack for the ability to collect bulky materials in a very short period of time. One of the first things I did with mine was set out to collect a massive amount of tinder in a sub three minute time frame. I collected about a pound and a half of birch bark in my effort.

    Why do this? Well it's similar to the man in the creek drill. You need waist high flames in as short a time as possible. With Birch bark like this it'll catch a spark with little effort and you get an immediate blaze to which you can continue to add dry twigs and limbs broken from the lower levels of spruces and firs without ever pulling a knife. It's not applicable for all AOs, here however, about 35% of my trees are birch with hanging paper bark year round. So, if I can collect enough of that bark as quickly as possible it allows me to get a good blaze going and then add unprocessed fuel. It eliminates the need to spend time using finer motor control in the processing step of building a split wood fire or similar.

    The blaze is hot enough and large enough that it burns added wood without the need to split out the dry interior. It had been snowing or raining for three days before this, nearly everything was wet. At this point I just snapped off the low level dead and mostly dry pine twigs and limbs from the spruce I was under.

    The signal sack has a ton of uses as already outlined, quickly collecting superb tinder is just one of them.

    Super useful piece of kit.
