Growing up backpacking and hiking in CO as well as participating in a few survival schools, I've become well-attuned to concepts of 'a little preparation and alot of ingenuity'. The items in this little pack are not only ingeniously well-thought out, but the instructions are practical and provide the basis for self ingenuity in emergency or catastrophic situations. I've purchased 9 - for my loved ones as well as my purse, car and daypack to take on all my travels - whether rural or urban - local or overseas. I've also added a few additional items like an emergency blanket, water purification, solar chargers, SW solar radio/light/charger, etc. The best part of this little pack, however, are the instructions. I've recommended it to many. Also, the price here appears to be the same as anywhere else.
This survival pak in combination with "Adventure Medical Ultralight & Watertight .5 First Aid Kit" and "Gerber Ultralight L.S.T. Knife" turns into a mere ~8.5oz SOL kit for me. The included instructions, though quite basic for most outdoor enthusiasts, is a good summary of necessary skills, and the included items are of high quality for how light they are. The only two items that aren't quite up to par in my humble opinion are the magnifying glass and the compass, which are both flimsy and not very effective (nonetheless, they're better than not having them). My favorite item is the fire starter, it works so well that I'm tempted to use it for my normal fire starting applications.
Well, I can't say that I've had to use it, thank God - but I feel a lot better carrying it on my hiking/backpacking trips. It has a nice selection of survival tools, all you really need to add is an emergency survival blanket/shelter, and maybe a small light source, and you have a very nice survival kit in a tiny little package that fits right in your pocket. I carry it even on my shorter day hikes here in the city parks.
Honestly, I have never used this kit--nor do I ever want to need to--but anytime I head outdoors doing something I might not have thought all the way through, this little sucker is with me. All the contents make sense as to why they are included, and there is a handy pocket survival guide with it to further drive this home. Weighs nothing. Sturdy container. It won't save your life by itself, but it'll help calm that 'well.....#@!*' feeling.
This is by far that smallest, most complete survival pack I have seen. The survival instructions are great. This fits perfectly in my Adventure Medical Kits Weekender first aid kit. With both of these I am ready for just about anything. It even comes with a scalpel blade. Pretty sweet.
Small enough to always have with you. Haven't had to use it, but it is always in the back pack or lumbar pack on any length trip. A little peace of mind. Small and light enough to justify caring it on any trip.
No more thinking I should put a decent survival kit together, let the experts do it. I take it with me on every hike, and I added a few extras like micro pur tabs.
Great item a must for every trip
