If Altoids Survival Tins are compact, yet largely often inadequate and bug-out bags are cumbersome and usually out of reach... What is the answer? Enter: the "bail out bag".
Bail out bags are the perfect compromise between a mini survival kit and a large bug out bag. In fact, you may surprise yourself how easy it is to meet your survival needs without the need of a giant bag.
To clarify, I do keep a comprehensive Altoids survival kit on me at all times [see my other instructable] and I also keep a 60 liter Osprey Aether backpack in the back of my vehicle full of SHTF gear as my 72 hour get home bag. But if I'm suddenly thrown into a survival situation - such as a drunk driver knocking me off of a bridge in the middle of nowhere - then I only have one short window to reach for survival gear before the car fills with water. Also, if I carpool with a friend on a roadrip I can bring this bag with me or if I'm in a dual survival situation I can give this bag to the other person and I can carry my 72 hour bag. I can list off other random uses, but I think you get the point. :)
