Pocket Survival Kit Contest Entry #7

Note: Check back over the weekend--I've got some catching up to do! If you want to enter, the full details are right here.


My idea behind my PSK was that I wanted something I could carry around easily in a city, I do parkour so it's geared more towards small injury and rips in clothing but if necessary matches to start a fire and a compass in case you get lost.

List of Contents:
Small sewing kit
Compass
4 ibuprofen pills
Eye glasses repair kit with backup sewing needle and thread
Small roll of bandage material
5 and half feet of string
3 tiny Bandaids
2 Alcohol Wipes
1 Gauze Pad
1 book of Matches
Micro tool by swiss tech which has #1&2 Flathead and Phillips screwdrivers, Pliers, Wire Cutter/Stripper

  2. Great choices for what you do regularly. Kudos. My version of parkour is finding my car-keys :)

    Those "plastic tube" eyeglass repair kits are handy, but a lot of "dead space"- I discovered they make good holders for stuff like "one cup worth of instant coffee" and/or salt/spices in bigger kits, though :)

    My one real constructive suggestion would be to wrap the the tin in a few layers of "VetWrap" bandage, etc. for sprains, parkour is a ROUGH dang thing to do :) .

  3. I like seeing a kit that has a purpose behind it. Its impossible to think of survival in general terms--you can't just have a kit for general surviving. Also nice to see a kit that could see regular day to day use.
