Step 2: Idea number 2

everybody puts cotten balls in their kits or atleast most of the people 
but i think that swaps or whatever they are called are better i sall tell wy

1. they can be used together with the fluidits for firemaking
2. they can be used together with the fluidits for better cleaning
3. you can clean small places onto ur body like ur ears or nose
4. you can take the cotten from them to use seperate

Step 3: Idea number 3

this one is 1 of the things i carry with me always lockpicks
i know they are hard to use for most people but if you can use them put them in there
   imagine you are in the woods lost and you need a shelter because its gonna rain and you find a shack or a small building or whatever kind of building with a lock (you never know what weerd shit you can find in the woods)believe me you will be so happy you have lockpicks with you and you can use them

also some lockpicks can be used as a weapon

Some good ideas. Ignore the criticism. I get the lockpicks - you live in a populated place where you are likely to encounter locked buildings. Here in the US not so much. Most survival kits leave out a lighter in favor of more primitive means but a disposable lighter is probably THE best firestarter to have in any kit. They're just not 'cool!'

thx for the comment ^^ thou i need to be honest i dropped the whole survival thing in favor of bushcraft witch teaches you skillz that not only let you survive but life in nature as well and also you could end up with a big skill list and also thx for being somebody that understands the lockpicks concept ^^

If you're in a survival situation, do NOT drink alcohol. 1. You won't be able to think clearly afterwards, at a time when you need to be thinking rationally. 2. Alcohol upregulates aquaporin in your kidneys, which will cause you to pee and lose valuable water from your body. Benzene is carcinogenic. I'm not sure right off hand what amount is dangerous, but I believe the EtOH would be better for cleaning wounds than benzene if absolutely necessary.

uhm if you read it completely you would have seen that the benzine is for fire starting mostly and not cleaning wounds the alcohol is mutch better for that
SORRY DUDE IM NOT TRYING TO INSULT YOU OR BE UGLY, BUT AN MP3 AND LOCKPICKS? those are the most useless things i could ever think of putting in a survival kit .Hope you enjoy the music and picking your nose while your busy starving to death .sorry just couldnt resist.

maybe a late replay but i live in a country that is frigen small look it up on the map look for holland or any other way of saying it and as you will see it is small and most city's and other places are normally in walking distance also the mp3 player is because i have a tendency to go crazy without music thx to a combo of autism adhd pddnos and mcdd and i prefer to keep my self from going mental so for where i live the lockpicks have a use besides picking my nose with is also not a smart thing to do since it hurts as hell
yip cool

just not something ill ever need...........i have however been looking at survival sticks made out of bamboo....the chambers inside are usefull for storing a multitude of bits and pieces ie hacksaw blades,bits of wire, bicycle spokes,small file etc....all of which could be fashioned into a multitude of useful tools......i prefer items that could have multiplre functions....mp3 is out for me as i can whistle rather well.........enjoy

a drink or two might be just the thing to keep one from panic and to allow "outside of the box" thinking.
cotton balls are better. The swab/q-tip is unwieldy and uncrushable in a kit. For the space/weight they take up in a kit, more cotton balls can be added. If you want to use them to clean an orifice in your body as you mentioned above, just wrap a cotton ball on a convenient stick. When done, discard cotton ball and stick.
The reason most kits don't include a zippo or "wind proof" lighter - or a lighter at all for that matter - is because the fuel will evaporate quite quickly, or it can contaminate other materials inside the kit. A cheaper, plastic lighter would also be discarded because they are easy to break and may again get their fuel on other materials. Waterproof matches are safer and they don't become a couple of ounces of useless weight when they run out of fuel.

Good ideas but if you're not making one, it's better to use a Forum Topic - you tend to get more discussion.
