You have none of the survival essentials other than fire, which is questionable because if you think 2 matches are enough then i doubt you can light a fire with one. You've got no way to purify water, no rope (an essential), no worthwhile first aid, no way to make any sort of shelter, and no redundancy whatsoever. And that mirror would be pretty useless, you'd wanna get an actual signaling mirror- that is something you can't afford to skimp out on. Which is funny because you said you don't wanna take chances in a survival situation when talking about the single bandaid you added. You might as well drop everything but the dongle.

You see, there is a limit on what all you can add to something wearable, but I will keep in mind your suggestions and make the version 1.1 better
