You can make this with a small Altoids tin. The size is almost exactly the same. Its can get pricey trying to get all these small yet practical items in a small tin...unless you have access to bulk pricing on L.E.D. flashlights, ferro rods, XL sewing needles etc. You can also use our item list to make a good kit of your own. For example use braided fishing line instead of the cheaper mono line. Monofilament line forms a memory and becomes messy after a few months on a spool or in a kit. Braided line does not form a memory and is stronger. We put high quality items in our kits for a reasonable price. www.elementsofsurvival.com

Nice and braided is smaller diameter so you could fit more!!!
