Fulton, NY (PRWEB) July 2, 2008
Just in time for the Independence Day holiday, JHL Supply and CampingSurvival.com are pleased to announce the debut of AmericanMadeSurvival.com, an online store for campers, survivalists and other outdoor enthusiasts interested in American made camping gear and survival equipment.
"A number of our customers have expressed a desire to search exclusively on products made in the USA," said Tom Sciacca, President of JHL Supply. "Because we have always placed a very high priority on our customers' shopping experience, we felt that it was an appropriate time to launch an entirely new web site. AmericanMadeSurvival.com makes it easy for campers, outdoor enthusiasts and survivalists to find the highest quality survival equipment, all of which is made in America."
CampingSurvival.com, launched in 2002 by JHL Supply, has earned a reputation as one of the leading online authorities on camping and survival gear, and has had consistent and rapid growth ever since. The growth was fueled by an increasing awareness of disaster preparedness due to the ever-present threat of terrorism, as well as a number of high profile natural disasters including Hurricane Katrina.
Although the site maintained a huge selection of wilderness survival equipment such as hunting knives, fire starters and compasses, CampingSurvival.com also became known as a leading expert on urban survival, with items like "go bags", water purification, emergency kits and MRE (Meals Ready to Eat). These items - often associated exclusively with camping and wilderness survival - are now recognized as important items to keep in any household, due to the increased attention on severe weather and unexpected man-made disasters.
Urban survival products entered mainstream conversation just three years ago after news reports focused on the importance of emergency survival kits for enduring the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster. The kits are prepackaged with food, first aid, water purification, flashlights and other necessary items. While it's possible to assemble an emergency kit from scratch, it's much easier to buy them already assembled and with components chosen by experts for usefulness and durability.
Sciacca, a former Marine and veteran of the 1991 Gulf War, says that AmericanMadeSurvival.com makes it easier for customers to search for quality, American made products such as tools, clothing and footwear, sleeping gear, flashlights, MRE (Meals Ready to Eat), and just about any other item necessary for wilderness and urban survival.
"There is a renewed sense of pride in buying products made in the USA," Sciacca continued. "Customers are placing an increased emphasis on finding American made camping and survival equipment, and we're happy to help them find those products easier."
