    Blood group won't help you a lot,because it's not ''original'' proof of your blood group....and doctors/ambulance won't trust to piece of paper....

    I don't think they'll let you die because they don't like the form of your Blood Type.

    I might have laminated that emergency contact card just to keep it from getting destroyed by water, but other than that, this looks really good.

    It's also a edc I thought they could be useful and they would fit...

    Maybe a zip lock bag for water. Why do you have earplugs?! Your knives and tools are good enough
