I wasn’t going to do a post about Prime Day because I wasn’t so sure the deals would be any good. In my opinion, Amazon seems to essentially have made up a shopping holiday out of a random day in July, and I wasn’t sure how well it would work out. Obviously, it all depended on what was being offered and if the deals were steep enough (minimum 20% off in my opinion for it to be worth talking about).
While there isn’t as much on sale as we really would’ve liked (in case you haven’t noticed, we like a healthy dose of variety here on More Than Just Surviving), the sales that do exist really aren’t all that bad, especially considering most are in the 25-30% off price range. So I thought I’d do you the favour of sorting through the deals for you, in case you were too lazy to look (if you aren’t too lazy to look for yourself, here’s the page that shows all the Amazon Prime Deals).
Please remember that you need to have Amazon Prime to take advantage of these offers – but don’t worry, cause if you don’t, there’s that whole 30-day free trial thing, so just grab it and then cancel after 29 days or whatnot. No harm done to your pocket that way.
Okay! Now down to the goodies.

Knife Lightening Deals on Amazon Prime Day 2016
These offers are lightening deals – which means that there’s a certain number that can be bought and once they’re all sold, you’re out of luck if you wanted one. So if you think one of these is a good deal, grab and go to make sure you don’t get left out.
- Victorinox Champion Plus Swiss Army Knife
- Victorinox Sportsman II Swiss Army Knife
- CRKT 1060 Larch Enticer Assisted Open Folding Knife
Outdoor Gear Deals
Outdoor Gear % Off & Lightening Deals on Amazon Prime Day 2016
Again, not too many great deals, unfortunately, but certainly some good ones if you’re in the market for general survival & outdoor products.
Remember that with lightening deals, some of these may have ended before you got to them while others may start later in the day.
My favourites of these items are probably the first three two – the Lifestraw Personal Water Filter, Coleman Grill, and the Survivor Filter PRO – which looks like something we should get our hands on for a review. Both very handy. The OuterEQ Cookware is also something we’ve recommended time and time again, because of how compact and convenient it is to carry.

Kershaw Leek Folding EDC Flipper Knife – Amazon
Honestly speaking, not bad deals. As I said a million times by now, just wish there was more variety. Hopefully next year!
Hope you found something worth taking advantage of, even if not in the deals we’ve included here, somewhere else on the site. We snagged a couple surge protectors ourselves, and if I was in the US, I’d be grabbing some of these amazingly useful Amazon Packing Cubes (have ones from Heys that I paid sooo much more for, these are a great price), but alas, we’re in the UK and not the US.
Again, the link for all the Prime Day sales – here. Happy hunting!
