Step 1: Intro

Picture of Intro
As you can see evrything is tightly packed inside but nothing is forced in. The reason you don't want to force anything in is so nothing gets damaged because then its just useless and taking up valuable space

Step 2: Paracord

Paracord can be used for many different things in the wild, such as: traps, snares, shelter, rafts, repelling, and many more just be creative

the bright yellow bracelet raped around the tin is a paracord bracelet I show how to make in one of my other instructables
please check it out

Step 3: Bear Gryls Priorities Of Survival

This little Waterproof paper has everything you need to survive, knowledge wise

Step 4: Duct Tape

Picture of Duct Tape
You may have heard "you can fix any thing with duct tape" it is true you just have to be creative
duct tape is waterproof and has leathery properties   

Step 5: Compass

You can use a compass to find direction to get back to where you need to go
but if you don't have a compass there are natural ways you can tell direction
ex. the sun always sets in the west.

Step 6: Matches

Picture of Matches
Matches are use for starting fire
fire is used a lot in the wild
like making torches, cooking, and even scaring off animals

Step 7: Multi Tool

this one has a flash light, knife, A saw, and pliers. all these tools are very useful in the wilderness 
the knife can obviously be used for cutting things 
the flashlight is to be able to see in the dark
the saw is to cut branches

Step 8: Band-Aids

These are obviously to cover up a cut so it doesn't get infected

Also, I've seen one of these "everything you need to survive bear grylls one page pamphlet" YOu might want to go get something that teaches you more than hand signals.

Trying to be nice, but please check your spelling and grammar a little bit. Step 2: I think you mean the yellow bracelet is "wrapped" around the tin.
Anyway, this is one of the best Altoid survival tins I've seen! Nicely done.
I saw that and cringed a bit

I have been looking over the survival altoid tins, wish now I had a lot of them to experiment with. I just love all the awesome kits that have been put together. Now I want to make a kit of my own as well. Wonder if I can get some empties off craigslist from my own area, going to try since I don't have any at this time.
