Superpowers Super Safe

Optical equipment is not generally viewed as safety or emergency equipment.
 
But I assure you that a good set of binoculars can often avert disaster or reduce it greatly. Whether it is checking out somebody at a distance to see if they pose a threat or to find somebody that's lost, a good set of binoculars is indispensable. And they can also prevent you from getting lost, by familiarizing yourself with the terrain at a distance and in detail or finding your car or campsite when it is too far away to see with the naked eye.
 
I have used binoculars to navigate my way efficiently through the desert for many years and I know that people who do not have a good set of binoculars when out walking the desert are not as safe as they could be.
