Here’s a useful video tutorial from Wranglerstar “Modern Homesteading” – which dives into the topic of creating the most useful possible survival kit that can be packed into an Altoids tin and picked up from Walmart.
Fun challenge! The kit is divided into three categories – first aid, tools and fire starting.
He ended up buying a whole basket of stuff (yay for consumerism) but did actually manage to get everything packed into the tin.
Here’s a rundown of the kit contents: (links are Amazon affiliate links)
1 Alcohol wipe
2 Band aid
Neosporin in a straw (label it!)
1 Q tip
Miniature Victorinox Swiss Army Knife (there are so many to choose from!)
Miniature flashlight (1.3 inch! Love it, this one is an amazing example!)
“Survival Card” tool
Singer upholstery needles (super strong!)
Pencil (cut short)
Small roll of wire
Fishing kit in a straw – Safety Pinhooks, weights, baits (marshmallow?)
Gorilla tape – rolled onto a small tube / card etc
Ferro rod – fire steel
3 Stormproof matches
Cotton balls with petroleum jelly (in a straw)
There it is! What else would you have included?
Rather than that nasty looking suture needle I would have chosen 3M STERI STrip Skin Closures – which I have found far easier to use and got amazing results holding a cut closed. Not medical advice.
