Pocket Survival Kit Entry #10

 
Carried for a week of camping in Hawaii. Cost under $8.
  • 2x alcohol swabs. Clean hands (or scratches)
  • 2x tylenol and advil. for headaches when the ear plugs aren't enough
  • solar rechargable flashlight. to help find where i left the big flashlight in the dark.
  • 6' of elastic (bungee) cording. Tighter knots.
  • super glue. better than bandaids and useful for repairs
  • lighter that uses any flammable liquid (including alcohol swab liquid) - the silver canister
  • small backup knife - for when i loose the big one.
  • wire saw for starting up fire to cook fish on the islands.  also helped start opening up coconuts...
  • Green waterproof canister with carribiner. most valuable item.  keeps gear dry, and when snorkeling i carry my wallet or camera in it, attach it to the back of my snorkel mask's strap, and have a camera available when we climb to the top of the islands after snorkeling out.  used ALL the time.  $20 for 6 of them on ebay. love em.
This pack was used when i wasn't normally wearing pants. Much of these items i carry every day in a pocket. on the beach, the tin kept it all from falling out.

  1. I like this kit a lot. I have had some practical experience with using Super Glue for wounds, it's nice stuff to have. I also like the low cost of this kit. For under $8 you have some useful stuff here that could go a long way if a full size kit wasn't an option.

  2. Finally a Witz container, I was wondering how long it would be. To me, one of the most practical - you can easily see the contents inside it.

    Very nice kit - my compliments sir.
