Exotac ripSPOOL Field Repair Kit, Orange

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: Orange

U.S Patent No. D859,960

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.

    This kit came in handy for me when my tarp ripped at night in a rainstorm. It is small and easy to tuck into your pack, weighs nothing, and has pretty much everything you will need for emergency repairs.
