Adventure Medical Pocket Survival Pak Reviews:


I think this survival kit deserves another 5-star review. At 3.9 oz., this kit is small, and that's a good thing to me. It's amazing how much stuff is in this little bag. All of the items are of the best quality. The signal mirror is beautiful. The inclusion of a lens magnifier is something I haven't seen in almost any other kit (great backup for fire starting). I know the firestarter that comes with it is normally about $8 just by itself. I just tried out the Fox 40 Micro whistle, and it's so loud, my ears started ringing (be careful). For a complete personal kit, I would recommend adding a knife, light, survival blanket, water purification tablets, wire saw, and a water bag. For the price, you can't get a better survival kit than this. I am really impressed by the quality here. My only minor complaint is that I wish they made the bag that the items come in a little bigger. I have trouble fitting everything in there properly and keeping it closed after I've taken items out and tried to get everything back in. That's almost not even worth mentioning though because this kit is excellent. I've bought other kits before... the kinds that tell you they have a signal mirror until you find out they mean the inside of the tin can the items come in. Not cool. This AMK Pocket Survival Pack is the best.

I have three or four of these little gems and recommend them highly! While any kit this small is going to be pretty bare-bones, when the chips are down better the basic kit in your pocket than the 30 pound Bug-Out Bag sitting back in your living room. And all the basics are represented by very high quality items; I'm actually very impressed. The Fox whistle is very, very loud, and the signal mirror is superb. Heck, both of them are fairly expensive on their own. The Spark-Lite firestarter, when used with the supplied tinder, is amazing. I've seldom failed to light the tinder on the first strike. Again, it's small enough that there are compromises. Water is very important but is hardly addressed. You are supposed to be able to make a cup from the foil but good luck with that. The kit is designed to be non-expiring, which is why water purification tabs arent' included. Fortunately there's just enough room in the kit for a few SMALL additions. I added a small aqua-pouch to mine. All in all a very well thought out mini PSK. Anyone into camping, fishing, hiking or hunting would be well served to keep a PSK like this on their person whenever venturing into the wild. Hopefully supplemented with a few choice items (eg water, survival blanket) but just the contents of the PSK could keep you alive.

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.

If you're the least-bit preparedness minded, this belongs in your back pocket or purse. Adventure Medical makes these and puts quality tools in them. Adding stuff is a dubious proposition, as the thing's pretty well full, but there's so much here already. I never leave the house without this and my Swiss Army Knife.
T. Lee at on 10/03/2011

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.

Ben Cook at on 08/09/2006

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
