There are plenty of things you want to have on you in a survival situation, then there are the things you really need. Our proprietary Life Capsule is designed to contain and transport essentials such as matches, tinder quick, pills, a repair needle, or really anything small and vital. To ensure you always have a high quality navigation aid at hand, we’ve designed the Life Capsule dimensions to contain the NATO SAS Compass.

Our Life Capsules are relied upon by members of domestic and foreign special operations forces, backcountry diehards, search and rescue teams, law enforcement and anyone who spends a lot of time in the field or has a high degree of personal preparedness.

Made of lightweight and durable aircraft grade T6 aluminum, the compact Life Capsule can be stowed almost anywhere or threaded with paracord to wear around the neck. The quick detach (QD) swivel is removable from the end cap, and can be used with one-inch nylon webbing or other methods for retention and carry. It is available in a black matte finish with the TAD logo milled on the top.


  • The QD swivel may magnetize items it comes into contact with or near to so we suggest you place it on the opposite end of the NATO compass. To ensure best results with the compass, remove from the capsule and lay flat on a surface or your hand.
  • NATO SAS Compass, and other items shown in photos are not included with the Life Capsule. Only the actual Life Capsule product is for purchase on this page. 
  • As with all machined items, variations in color or texture may occur.
