Many of the 7P training clients ask what equipment we recommend. So our team of Camel Trophy veterans, international adventurers, desert diehards and jungle junkies have assembled a kit that incorporates our most favorite and trusted components. This kit will work for you whether you’re camping locally for the weekend or on an around-the-world expedition!
Unlike many other kits, everything in the 7P Recovery Kit is fit for purpose and correctly rated. 7P uses the standards of the lifting industry because the 4x4 / off-roading / overlanding industry doesn't have a specific set of standards. Our carefully selected a properly rated equipment means you can trust your gear to be safe. Our goal is to make sure your gear doesn't let you down when you need it the most!

Kit Breakdown Of parts/description:
Recovery Kit Backpack | We’ve partnered with the great folks at Blue Ridge Overland Gear to build a good looking and functional pack for our recovery gear. Not only does its tombstone shape fit easily into lots of handy locations around your vehicle, it opens to reveal its hi-vis yellow interior (with two pockets) and lies flat making it easy to quickly retrieve the piece of gear you need. And when you need to schlep all your gear all the way over there to help a buddy out, it quickly converts into a backpack so you can easily and safely traverse the rock/sand/mud to the stuck vehicle.
Gloves | Finding a good pair of gloves that last a long time seems easy, but we’ve been disappointed. Finally, we found some rope gloves that are tough, comfortable and value for money. The base palm is made with a very flexible goat leather, with reinforced patches strategically placed in wear- spots. All of the leather is pre-curved prior to sewing, which makes the gloves feel already broken-in the first time you put them on. The gloves are made with Schoeller® synthetic leather which will hold up to the beatings dished out to gloves. The backs of the gloves use an air-mesh for breathability to keep your hands cool while working. The Airprene wrist cuff has an adjustable Velcro closure tab and a carabiner grommet for clipping your gloves to your recovery bag.

Splicing Kit | A recovery kit isn’t a recovery kit without a means to fix winch lines and rope slings. Our splicing kit is designed for just that purpose. The fid that works on a range of rope diameters, so you can help a buddy out. The kit also includes tape, a marking pen, scissors, a needle, and twine so you’ll be able to be back up and running in no time! The splicing kit comes in a BROG 12" x 6" x 2" Nylon Cordura pouch. The kit also includes a 6 ft. practice length of Amsteel Blue synthetic rope.
Pulley / Snatch Block | Our snatch block is a hot-forged aluminum impact pulley made from high-quality materials and components. The side plates are produced using the best quality hot forged aluminum and a special manufacturing process allows these pulleys to offer a highly impressive strength to weight ratio. These pulleys are rope friendly, durable and extremely robust. These features combined give maximum security and strength when the pulley is rigged as part of a vehicle recovery system.

Endless Sling | This polyester endless sling has infinite uses. We love the flexibility of an endless sling. It's a tree protector, a tow rope, and winch extension, and much more. 7P's 12ft. the version is long enough to do all these things safely.

Designed for knotless rigging, the sling length can be set anywhere from 40” to 10 ft by means of a spliced choker - where the outside of the rope passes through the inside, like a Chinese finger trap that’ll easily hold the weight of your vehicle.
