Prepare-aphenalia: A Belt That Will Do More Than Just Hold Up Your Pants!

There's not much fashionable preparedness gear out there.
Sure, there's a bra that saves lives. But most things are just conceptual or prototypes.

But today I get to tell you about a piece of prepare-aphenalia that's actually available for purchase, would look great on a guy or a girl, and is a great addition to your fashion-forward disaster kit.

This sweet belt from six eight six ventures into multi-tool territory with a buckle that contains Philips and flathead screwdrivers, an adjustable wrench loop and -- most important -- a bottle opener. Not girly enough? Ladies, your version can be found here.

Sure, a real multi-tool (like this one) is more useful overall, but you never know where you might run into an emergency and, if you're wearing pants (which I sincerely hope you are), you'll likely have this right around your waist.

Prices come in at around $55 and are available in a variety of places online.
