ATV Emergency Riding Kit

Tow_rope_3ATV trips can be great fun until trouble surfaces. If you haven’t anticipated problems, things can get worse in a hurry.. When life on the trail goes south, you’ll need more than just a first aid kit.  Gather these items and keep them in your ATV rackbag so you’ll be prepared for whatever the trail throws your way:

Drinking water and a collapsible water container
Map and Compass (especially if you bring a GPS)
Extra GPS batteries
Energy bars
Space blanket
First aid kit
Rain gear
Bow saw
Fire starter kit
Tire repair kit
Small electric compressor
Two-way radio
Plastic zip ties
Duct tape
