Horizons Tec HT-747.2 Emergency Kit Review

This is a great set. We will start with the radio. You can charge it with the included USB cable, hand crank or use the solar panel. Once charged, it packs three emergency items into one - a flashlight, radio and portable charger. It would be great for emergencies, power outages, or hiking. As a flashlight, has an LED light on the front, with three LED bulbs, that are fairly bright. As a charger, it charged my phone just fine. As a radio, you can toggle between AM, FM and NOAA stations. It also has a small light by the display so you can see what you're doing. To toggle between them, you'll push the power button, then the Band button.

It's fairly light - just under 8oz - and small enough not to add to much bulk if you take it hiking or keep it in your glove compartment. The paracord bracelet feels sturdy and well made. The compass is easy to see, super convenient, and most importantly, it works. The knife/flint scraper had me a little nervous - it is a blade on the clasp of the bracelet, but it has a cover once the clasp is attached. The clasp itself is sturdy and opens/closes easily. It also has a whistle on the clasp that is easily accessible and works well.
