Dug out an old pocket survival kit that I used to carry out with me all the time. Haven't been taking it with me since I have been taking less stuff with less redundancy. Opening it was like opening a time capsule. Come along with me. Here's the kit. It might even be a little smaller than an altoids tin. Outside has a couple of ranger bands and some cordage holding a few Gerber milk bags. Inside the lid are a couple of heavy duty needles, straight and curved, held in place with duct tape and with a couple of cotton pads over the top. My water component. My fire kit. Dug out more tinder quick and another cotton pad that I used to fill dead spaces. Stringy stuff. A really old tank of a light. And miscellaneous tools. And the remaining bits. I know the importance of having stuff on you, but I stopped carrying this since I will always have a knife or multitool on my person along with a small flashlight, fire starting implement and cordage. And if I am in the woods, I will have a canteen, cup and stove on me. The little tin doesn't have a shelter per se. But I will usually carry at least a Golite poncho and/or emergency blanket if I go in the woods. My bag can carry my regular kit which is also my survival kit. So I figured I would lighten the load even though at 6.6 ounces, it is not very heavy. I just prefer using full sized tools.
