It is no secret that I have been influenced by the Saami culture. After all, my knife of choice is the puukko. This tribe fought alongside the vikings and are still around today. In that same vein, I have always found the Saami Repair Kit to be an extremely valuable tool for field repairs. This was usually made of a hollowed out bone with needles, sinew thread, and leather patches pulled inside the bone to keep them secure and accessible. The Exotac ripSPOOL is the modern version of that, with some awesome modern features that make it even more valuable.

The ripSPOOL™ is a lightweight complete field repair kit that can also be used for multiple survival and bushcraft tasks to include: first aid, fire starting, fishing, and navigation.

The ripSPOOL™ was the brainchild of Daniel at Battlbox and Rob at Exotac. We focused on creating something unique, useful and sexy without compromise. It started out as an easy way to carry duct tape and evolved into a comprehensive field repair kit.

Color: Olive Drab

U.S Patent No. D859,960

Made in the USA

Manufacturer Lifetime Warranty

High-Strength Synthetic Line

Over 60 feet (18M) of 30lb test synthetic braided line to be used for re-stitching gear, creating tools or as an improvised fishing kit

Heavy Duty Repair Tape

The over 50in. (127cm) of repair tape can be used for patching holes, as an improvised bandage, creating bush-crafting tools or even as tinder (yes it’s flammable!)

#16 Sail Needle

The sail needle is retained by an o-ring in the line spool so it can be used as an improvised awl / thimble. Pull it out, attach thread and reinsert for sewing.

Firecord™ Lanyard

The included lanyard has an inner (red) core that can be pulled out and used as tinder. It burns like a candle wick and can be lit with any lighter, matches, or ferrocerium rod.

    You know you should have a needle and thread with you, and you probably already carry some repair tape. Why not use the ripSpool so all of your repair gear is tidy and in one place? Super useful piece of kit.

  3. Keith H. (verified owner)

    Really neat repair kit, a bit heavy but holds everything you need in a nice package.

  4. Rod Yewell (verified owner)

  5. Darren (verified owner)

    Well made simple piece of kit. Worth it.

  6. Tina Brandon (verified owner)

    This is much easier & better than carrying a whole sewing ???? kit.

    The ripSpool is a welcome addition to my field toolkit.
