Carry five essentials (fire, navigation, signal, gear repair, and first aid) in this Altoids-style tin.
Price: $12.00

Inspired by kits my kids designed, this three ounce tin is packed full of non-expiring survival items. Drop into every pack and always be prepared.


  • Three ounces
  • 3.5″ x 2.375″ x 0.75″


  • One razor blade with folding handle
  • One 18″ strip of duct tape
  • Five Tinder Quik fire starting waterproof tabs
  • Seven heavy duty stormproof and waterproof matches
  • Three-foot length of 275 paracord with 5 inner strands
  • One 20mm button compass
  • Two micro towels (expand to 8″ x 10″)
  • One safety pin
  • One whistle
  • One ID Card
  • One 2″ x 3″ plastic bag for any required medications

At half the diameter of standard 550 paracord, the 275 cord contains 5 inner strands and provided plenty of cordage for gear repair or shelter needs.


Both the matches and the firestarter tabs provide a stormproof way to start a fire. Each Tinder Quik tab burns for 2-3 minutes. Each match burns for 15 seconds even when wet or submerged in water.

Micro Towels

When moistened with a small amount of water, these towels expand to 8″ x 10″.  They can be used as gauze pads in a first aid situation. Or even tinder for a fire in a pinch.


This kit was designed to last years because none of the items expire. There are no medications or batteries to check before heading out on an adventure. It’s always ready for any situation.

Duct Tape

What survival kit would be complete without some duct tape? Use it for gear repair, first aid tape, or even to hold a makeshift shelter together.
