Instructables
Picture of Quick Pocket Pouch (QPP)
This is my first instructable, so i apolgize now for any mistakes.
I always wanted to make a quick pocket pouch just in case of an emergency situation ever happened, and i only had a few minutes to act. its very basic and was designed for what i would need and what i could have tucked into my pocket.

Shoulda packed some TP bro, or you gonna be wiping your butt with paper!!
I agree...

A couple dozen squares folded up with a small bottle of hand cleanser or alcohol, and stored in a ziploc bag..

Can be easily slipped into a pocket, with or without the emergency/EDC pouch..

AND - if you keep your disposable lighter in there, that's your "fire-starting" taken care of, as well.

Nice effort.

Paracord, though, can be somewhat of an overkill in a compact "kit" like this ~ check out "masons' (builders') twine", or maybe "hootchie (military spec') cord"... Plenty strong enough ~ and 50' will still be much less weight and bulk compared to paracord. which will allow room for another couple of extras..

INCLUDING a piece of duct tape or strapping tape or 50mm surgical tape ~ folded up flat so it easily fits into your pouch.

And maybe that water steriliser you couldn't fit previously..

(I would consider the knife/multitool, tape and twine the first three "essentials" that should go in there ~ everything else, you change and adapt to suit one's situation and activity..).

When using/packing condoms for a survival scenario, always use a latex, non-lubricated(dry) one. No worries of 'flavors' or anything else. Just relatively clean water. Water source pending, heh. Nice little kit, good work.

Great 'ible.
Size and weight is always the problem.
If you can find room you might want a couple of water sterilising tabs, and I'd try that condom for taste, lots of modern ones are lubricated and contain spermicide, don't know if you can get special survival ones.
You might also want to pop in a couple of loperamide to stop diarrhea.
Scalpel blade, dental floss makes a good thread for tying and sewing, needle

You've done a great job, you may want to tailor it for the conditions you generally face.

Not enough space. Have to improvise. Leaves or if your near a water source, take one of your socks off and use that. Just make sure you wash it, before putting your sock back on your foot. It's not ment to be 100% survival rated, just something that can be quick and easy and can straight into a pocket.
