I am making a survival kit and here are suggestions of what to put in it. These are the main stuff to survival but I will keep editing to add more stuff and ideas that you will need.

Step 1: Finding a Box

I am using an old pencil case for all I the supplies.

Step 2: Knife

You definitely need a knife. For cutting fire wood and hunting. It is a key part of survival.

Step 3: Lighter

You need a lighter to start fires to keep you warm. Also to cook the meat you have hunted.

Step 4: Paracord

This is another key part of survival. This is because you can set up traps and set up a tent with it. You don't need to put it in the box you can wear it.

Step 5: Compass

You will need a compass. Because if you want to travel south for warmth you need to use a compass. Because you could be traveling east north or south.

Step 6: Flash Light

You need light at night to see. I bought a solar powered light at ACE hardware store for 5$

Step 7: Safety

You will need some band-aids and rubbing alcohol. This is for if you get a cut cut and you need proper treatment.

Step 8: Fresh Water

You will need fresh water to survive. You can use plastic bags and a rubber band. Put the plastic bag on a tree branch and put the rubber band over the plastic bag. Over time since the water can't evaporate it needs to I somewhere so it will go to the bottom of the bag.

Step 9: Fresh Water Holder

You need a place to hold the fresh water. That is a definite.

Regularly check the state of charge of your solar flashlight.

Might add some kind of ferro rod or magnesium bar as a back up in case your lighter gets wet.

I like the waterproof pelican box, that ones not to sturdy looks like it would break easily

I would also switch out the lighter for a ferrocium rod, they make many more fires than a lighter.

I think some tin foil would be a good addition

You have ways to get water, but no way to purify it. A life straw would be a good addition.

In order to get water in that way you need to put a large trash bag around a big branch and you'll get about half cup to a cup in one night. You need about 6 time as much every day...
