    What do u need the bag for. Those are thin and rip easily

    Very cool kit! Have you thought about switching out an item of lower importance for a knife of some sort? Just in case all you have is this kit [trust me, I've been separated from my everyday carry items several times due to various reasons] and you are in a survival situation.

    I uploaded my personal Altoids Survival Tin onto this site if you'd like to see how I've arranged mine. :)

    I usually carry a knife separately. I rarely carry this kit anywhere anymore. I usually have most of the needed things somewhere else, or in a different form. But, if you do carry a survival kit, it stands to reason that you'll also have a knife with you.

    how do you get the duct tape did you wrap it like on a pencil?

    Probably the match stick. I sometimes do that, but then I usually use a larger tin and put a whole heap in.

    The first thing recommended if you come in contact with Poison Ivy/ Poison Oak, is wash hands and face with soap and water if you even THINK you came close to it. The stuff can fly around in the wind and you can catch it! If you're somewhere you need to carry this tin, then your likely in proximity of one of these. Ounce of prevention... I would hate to be lost a few days somewhere AND with poison ivy! I would sure find some way to fit soap somewhere!

    um id do that then put mud on it

    for getting who knows what off your hands and to clean your hands after dealing with raw animal meat, the last thing you want when you're lost in the wilderness is to get salmonella poisoning.

    I know from previous experience it smells good...
