Introduction: What's in My Survival/first Aid Kit You Ask?

These items! Got a quick little video explaining the items within my kit, and why I have those particular items. Also, I have some photos below for those of you that would rather read for yourself then listen to my rambling (Though I tried to make the video not boring!)

You may want to consider wrapping a few feet of duct tape around the outside.

I would also suggest an Epipen,just in case. You never know what you may get stung/bitten by.

So far so good !!

But you DEFINETLY need:
- some sort of knife in there AND
- scalpel/razor blade

You should also benefit:
- some more safety pins,
- zip-ties
- rubber bands
- sewing kint
- saw blade
- gauze
- pencil/paper/pen

I'm happy you did not put any fishing stuff in there: it' way too over-rated
Also one rule I use is that "if the quantity of an item you bring is too few/little/small, then it's of no use at all".

not enough supply how true! I always make room for a roll of some strong fishing line...

Yes! A knife is a must! I need to get one!
I do have razor blades in there, they are taped to the top of the lid ^w^
More safety pins would be great, and you would thing with all the sewing I do, I would remember to put that in there! Hahaha.

One of the things I always see in the first aid kits that I buy is tea, sugar, and salt. Nice kit though!!!

Thank you! :0)
And yes, those would be good things to have in a kit. I always shuffle my kit accordingly depending upon what I'm going out to do be it a light hike at a state park or heavy hiking or camping out in the wilderness.

Nice kit. If you are looking for a nice, usable knife, I recommend the STL2 by Gerber. very compact but all metal, with a locking frame and only about $12 to 15 (US) at Walmart or other stores.

I like that speariment gum box. I have a twix box that I got at an after christmas sale. Now I know I can use that box as a survival/first aid kit. small knives can get pricey if you get the good stuff.

knifeworks.com has a nice selection of good quality knives if you want to look for one.

thanks for the video too, it's helpful seeing someone explain their ideas.

Thanks! I will def look at the website, In need of a good knife.
And yeah, the spearmint box a friend actually gave to me, she didn't know what to do with it, so I made a kit out of it, She also provided the waterproof matches to me and the toilet paper.

A couple of needles and some thread would be good to have also.
