I read earlier (in another comment) that you wrapped paper around a straw and then wrapped duct tape around that. Why the paper? What am I missing? Couldn't I just wrapped duct tape around itself into a barrel shape? Sorry to be so dense...

Thank you!

Very cool kit! I included a multi tool in my Altoids instructable as well! What brand is yours?

One thing I've seen others do is use trick birthday candles instead of regular ones so that they are harder to blow out do to the gun powder in them. If you keep these ones, be sure that you light them for a second or two so that they are easier to light in a survival situation.

Check out my Altoids Kit if you get a chance! :)
To be honest, if you removed the multitool and say just slipped it in another pocket, there'd be tons of room for plenty of other important survival essentials. Not the best use of the space given but you did a good job.

How did you package your pills like that (specifically your "important pills")?
This is the best kit I've found 'till now. Thanks broseph!

which, and what, are the fire strikers? I can't see them. Excellent idea.
I will instead carry a swiss bag full of those.

Its the striker that you get on a match box to strike the matches with sorry forgot to take picture of those hope this helps!

do you think taping the matches in place would keep them in better shape on a trail?
MicahelRoss (author)  mgarver3 years ago
i Think it kinda would be better but, then when you need them it will be harder to pull them out
