Now to the Adventurer VS-17 CIV Signal Panel

The Adventurer VS-17 CIV Signal Panel is a very durable signal panel modeled after the military VS-17 GVX Signal Panel. It is bright orange to attract attention of either airborne or ground search teams and is designed as an aerial marker to mark locations of those in distress or areas that need to be relocated quickly. Due to its water resistant backing, it can also be used in the construction of a survival shelter.VS17 CIV Signal Panel

The VS-17 CIV signal panel is orange on both sides, instead of pink on one and orange on the other. This relieves the customer from an significant cost increase due to the use of one sheet of durable nylon as opposed to two. This also lightens the signal panel from about 1lb each to around 1/2 lb, a significant decrease when carrying multiple signal panels or adding one to your pack or kit while hiking in the wilderness. We also removed the snaps, as most civilians will only be carrying one of these signal panels. However, we included MIL-C-5040H Type III corner tie downs so that the panel could be attached to numerous items, to include other signal panels if desired. This "parachute cord" is Military Issue and Made in the USA, a fact we have found to not apply to numerous versions of the Military Issue VS-17 Signal Panel.

What you will find in the Adventurer VS-17 CIV Signal Panel is a necessary piece of survival equipment, especially when an aerial search is in effect. This signal panel is lighter, but just as durable as the Military Version. It is less expensive and more aptly suited for hikers, campers, travelers and adventurers. The Adventurer VS-17 Signal Panel is assembled in the U.S. This Signal Panel is so popular, it is already being examined by government purchasers as a possible replacement to the military version.
