Introduction: Watertight Compact Survival Kit

Learn how to make an easy and lightweight survival kit that is easy to fit in a car, pack in a bag, or have ready to grab in case of an emergency (that you needed to leave your house)

Step 1: Gather Materials!

These are the things I put in but feel free to add/ take out anything you think you might not need. Here's a list of things I put in.

-Waterproof Matches (or a lighter)

-Paracord (10-25 ft recommended)

-Cheese spread (I took mine from an MRE)(Other food that can be left for a long time could go here)

-Water treatment tablets

-Emergency Blanket & Whistle

-Bright Poncho & Small flashlight

-Knife or a multitool

-Duck Tape

-Watertight container (I used a Nalgene water bottle)

Step 2: Start Packing!

First, you will want to pack the blanket and poncho in the bottom of the bottle

Step 3: Next

Now, you will want to add the water purification tablets duck tape roll and whistle

Step 4: On Top of That...

On top of that, you will want to put the matchbox, flashlight, and multi tool

Step 5: And on Top of That...

On top of that, you will want to put cheese spread or peanut butter (in the pictures).

Step 6: And on Top of That Stuff Your Paracord

last you can stuff the paracord in the remaining space, keeping everything in place.

I would add a gallon ziplock bag along with a reusable/fold-able grocery sack. If you end up needing to use this bottle for water storage, you will not have anything to keep the other items included in the bottle in . If you end up needing the bottle and find a clean water source you could fill up the zip lock bag and carry it in the reusable/fold-able grocery sack along with the other items that would be displaced from the bottle.

Water bottles make great waterproof storage. And you can pick them up really cheap at thrift stores.
