Most travelers do not realize the utility of data storage on a trek through the wilderness. While it may not seem like a must-have piece of kit to add to your pack weight; just think about the weight gained compared to utility added. You may store emergency medical, contact, and personal information in the event of a catastrophe. Do you enjoy digital media while lounging in your hammock? I’m sure your tablet doesn’t have all the space in the world. eBook enthusiasts, while already carrying a massive library on their device, may never run out of content to read. Personally, I’ve always been disappointed that I couldn’t carry more comics. Depending on your portable music player, carrying a USB flash drive may enable you to bring your entire music library with you.
Beyond weekend outings, extended hiking trips, and journeys abroad; what happens to your most precious data during a grid-down scenario? Your desktop or laptop may be fried, destroyed, immobile, or out of power for the foreseeable future. But your USB flash drive won’t. All this is contingent however on one characteristic: what can your flash drive survive? True to its name, the Corsair Survivor is borderline indestructible.
