Fire, you need fire - matches?

Pyromaniac! :)  It's not cool to play with matches...
  Least it wasn't a Zombie Survival Kit.  What you pack, kind of depends on where you are going/doing.  Would be nice if people included the purpose, for which the kit was created, like hunting, hiking, fishing, walking to school (through the bad neighborhood), walking the dog, spending the night at a girlfriends house...

Yes, very good points.
But, one primary basic of survival is fire. Without that you're going to struggle in the open. Interesting that this one doesn't include fishing-kit, but that's geographically restricted. I don't see the use of a carabiner with the amount of rope you could fit in that tin.

Javin007 (author)lemonie2010-06-25

:D Was this by any chance a vague reference to "The Fifth Element?"

lemonie (author)Javin0072010-06-25

No, but maybe I was thinking in the same way?


SasquatchKid (author)Javin0072010-06-25

Ha and made one of your stove to go with my altiods tin spice kit

SasquatchKid (author)lemonie2010-04-02

sorry forgot to mention its a urban survival kit

lemonie (author)SasquatchKid2010-04-02

OK, but you'd still benefit from a lighter in a lot of urban situations.

Oh the tins for your band-aids. Hmm, wouldn't just a zip lock bag be better?

SasquatchKid (author)mtnboy782010-06-09

I guess so i rly didn't have any baggies so thought of the tin

mtnboy78 (author)2010-04-26

You would want to carry all of that? Really? For an urban survival kit you'll need a folding knife, a multi-tool, a flashlight that will actually work(sorry for my honesty but that thing looks like you got it for free as a promo item from a carpenter or something), your gonna need 550 cord (550 cord is very strong, it will hold up to 550 lbs. You'll want a good hank of it to. 50 to 100 ft in a small farmers coil in your back pocket or pouch), matches or a good lighter(bics are unacceptable), a fisher space pen and a good rite in the rain notebook. I don't understand what the tin is for though...
