    This is the very first Survival Overnight adventure where I head into the woods with very little in terms of food, gear, clothing, and so on. The focus of this trip is an emergency shelter which is known as the Pocket Super Shelter and it is time to see how well that it holds up as an emergency option.
    In this episode you will see a beautiful remote forest, bears, deer, owls, and experience real survival with temps close to freezing with absolutely no overnight gear.

    The EPSS will work if the elements are not to extreem. 2-3 days. Even whit no fire. if the EPSS tears apart, you can wrap the restant arround your body to protect your vital body parts.
    Sub zero storys works different. Whitout any fire, Hardtimes for sure.

    I was concerned for your safety until I saw that you were armed. Self defense tools are always necessary, whether you're in the woods, or the concrete jungle.

    hey luke u should really use a holster for your weapon. For your safety man having it in your pocket like that isnt safe

    Hi Luke, Really enjoy this Survival themed Overnight Adventure video! The landscape and scenery you filmed was really beautiful as well. Great job!
    As for suggestions, would recommend filming a similar one with the minimal (5C's) gear that you recommend always keeping in your backpack even for a day hike in case of this type of a situation should arise and present a new emergency situation. Second, as an additional suggestion or twist on this concept perhaps you could create another related Survival type video using your preferred budget/military surplus minimal gear that you would choose to keep in your backpack. It would let us all know what gear your would choose to carry (from what you have in your supplies) and see you use it. I honestly believe that most of your viewers would appreciate and enjoy watching those videos! Thanks again for sharing this video.

    Well the shelter did its job and to be fair that's all the makers claimed , personally l wouldn't light a fire, my luck doesn't run to that by morning the shelter would be reduced to a molten blob.Great video though ,Thanks.

    HEY! Good Idea... Pee in the bottle to keep warm. As far as condensation in the tent... I generate a lot of body heat... there would probably be a torrential downpour in that shelter for me LOL.

    I ride a ktm450 in the woods or desert here in AZ. I carry a gun. Not for protection from animals or especially humans but just to shoot at targets when i take rests. We can fire a weapon as long as we are not in the city. I have responsible fun, that's all.

    Holster to protect the trigger allows you to carry one in the pipe bro 🤙🏽
    ...but I'm sure you have your reasons for doing what you do too. I'm definitely not THEE expert

    Tommy Newton 29 days ago

    Great video,I think that you should have took along a backup tarp or small tent just in case the product your testing should fail,not worth risking your life just for a video, I would rather be safe than sorry,I don't think in heavy rain and wind that it would have survived the night.

    It’s a good thing you were alone. The other guy would have crapped his pants when you pulled a gun and started yelling lol. I’ve been in that same situation. Mine was a damn raccoon fight that scared the crap out of me lol.

    I would also carry several thermal reflective blankets in such a case. Some are a bit thicker and would be better for a ground cloth.

    Nice to see another camper/outdoorsman recommending that people carry. Everywhere I go people try to make me feel like a criminal for having a weapon, even when there are news stories of people being killed right where we are camping or hiking. It's like they want to be victims. Great video as always brother!

    Idea for a new bear repellent hang a motion sensor like you see on the garage door lights and when a bear comes close by it sounds a loud pitch squealing noise like car alarm easy pack solar-powered and maybe and would scare Bears off while you sleep

    looks like it would be good for an absolute emergency one night stay Its better than nothing to keep the wind and rain at bay ! so show us what would be a good super shelter ???

  • Twigs N' Jigs

    I know this was just a test/review, but with a 34.99 US price tag, I would seriously consider just a mylar blanket and cheap plastic drop sheet from the dollar store. Total cost, maybe $5 with virtually the same results, and with a little rigging "finess" with some rubber bands or cordage, it works just fine and packs down small and light. Other than that, nice video Luke, looked like a nice spot for a camp out brother.

    I have usually emergency blanket inside my daily bag. This could replace that. Depends on price though. Keeping one or 2 in car could not hurt ether. But suggestions at the end make bit more sense indeed.

  • Omnifay

    Thanks for a great video!!!After you yawned at 4 A.M., yawns are contagious! I wonder how many others yawned, too! As far as guns are concerned, slide pistols I understand are not very accurate. I have my mind on getting maybe a revolver, but wonder what the best is...a 22 caliber or bigger...? I had some rifles stolen a couple or more years I do agree a gun for protection is wise, and easier to lug around than a rifle...although I will replace the ones stolen down the road...and I figure a 22 will only anger a bear....what do you think is a good outdoors firearm? As far as the survival tent, I wouldn't feel so safe in it, but it's good to stay warm in. I just kept imagining a bear leaning into your tent from behind! That would be a deal-breaker for me. Survival, though, maybe. But it did what it needed to do. I prefer debris insulation/nests.

  • djakavey

    I typically carry a sol emergency bivi and a military poncho on day trips. Just for when Murphy strikes. Also a small amount of 550 cord typically about 50 feet. There is so much that can be done with 550 cordage. Fishing net hammock snare set up. 2 days worth of food and some sort of water purification rain gear. Depending on season I will also carry a jacket to fit the temperature. There are also a few other odds and ends.

    I'm not sure if anyone has done it, but if you can walk into a doller store with $50 and get whatever you need to survive 1 or 2 nights.
    This will not include the basic clothing you are going to wear.
    It'll be interesting to see what you can buy to adapt for the night(s) out.

    Towel. T-shirt. Soak up wetness and have a drink. Yeah, the owl is talking. Mocking birds are known for that also. But you're owl-speak is spot on. Good job.

    It did its job! It wasnt pretty, but its an emergency shelter, not a long term tent. I'd give it a thumbs up.
    I'd pack that into an emergency survival kit LOOOOONG before packing useless stuff like fish hooks and safety pins.

    There was a Black Bear about 50yds behind you when you first stopped it ran from right to left behind you ,its a quick brief view of its back it was on all fours.Great stuff,love it.Here in the czech Republik we have Bears aswell,estimate is 800 at least ! I must admit I have beenadvised to sing out load if I sense Bears around,or some hikers have bells etc.I like your call you make greeting Bears.I carry only a low pwered 22 but its very loud. I will get myself an antibear spray for the close encounters.Great love this vid shows I am not alone amonst furrie Bears. Be Blessed.

    Maybe a dense mattress of dry leaves under the shelter to insulate and cushion you

    Maybe mop the walls with a small cloth such as handkerchief-sized or your sock and suck the water out of it, thereby giving yourself a drink and removing the condensation
