We are grateful for your help and willingness to contribute to our project and we're excited for the Vortrex Shoes to become a reality. In the meantime, Jamie wanted to guarantee that you got something cool for your contribution. While traditional swag items such as bumper stickers and t-shirts were an option, Jamie was quick to say “Frankly, that’s just not me...” So, he has put together some of his favorite stuff to form “The Hyneman Survival Kit.” This kit features a mix of items that he uses every day, as well as things he would grab in the case of an emergency. Some of our favorites are listed below.
