Never know when you might need something like this.
Lori C. Blubaugh
I have no doubt that this would be useful, however you can't rely on this alone to save you in a survival situation.
Cassandra
Purchased as a stocking stuffer gift for a couple of family members, they all through they were pretty neat.

Another "Survival Kit in a Can" product. This has a cheap toy whistle (you need better, and I have read a review which sez the whistle in this kit didn't work, which is very bad), a cheap pack of matches (needs better and a flint would be good also) one good tinder cube- enough for one fire, a small poor compass, a fishing hook, and some poly thread which can be used for fishing line if you have to. Most other kits like this have a needle also, so the thread can be used for sewing too.

For Medical, you have 1 bandaid, an alcohol swab, a couple of painkillers, and a triple antibiotic ointment. This is not bad at all for this sort of kit. I'd want 2-3 bandaids, myself.

For "food" you have a small candy, gum, a packet of bullion, a tea bag, and sugar. Well, since a real good idea when 1st lost is to STOP! and make a cuppa, this is OK for that purpose.

For tools, etc we have a foot of duct tape- very nice, a single edge razor blade (a good addition if you already have a decent knife) and a few other things.

The kit is compact, and fits in a pocket well. It is completely waterproof and sealed in a sardine tin. The bad news is, this kit is not as closely packed as the others, and it rattles a little. Annoying. You supposedly use the can itself as a signal mirror.

So, if you supplement this with a good knife, a better whistle, a survival blanket or bivvie, a small 1st aid kit and a firestarting flint with some extra tinder, it's not a bad thing for situations where you aren't going to be too deep in the outback. But all by itself.....

I got this as a gift because I'm into hiking, camping, and other outdoorsy stuff. I had this sitting around unopened for a while and decided to open it a few hours ago. I have to say, I'm pretty disappointed.
Contents:
A small pencil (the kind used for scoring in golf), tiny packet of salt, band-aid, paper-clip, cheap plastic whistle, one use of antibiotic ointment, 650mg acetaminophen (2 tabs), alcohol wipe, bag of tea, single edge safety razor, 3.5" duct tape on wax paper, fishing hook, spool of thread, chewing gum, cube of fire-starter, safety pin, cheap compass, tootsie-roll, book of matches, instructions and one plastic bag.

For starters, I assume that the mini tootsie-roll was the "Energy Nugget" mentioned on the lid, which made me chuckle. The first-aid items are pretty good but there's only one use of each. I'm not really sure what exactly you'd use the razor for, as it's just the blade and trying to do much else with it other than cutting paper would be pretty dangerous. The bag of tea is a good idea but you better have something to soak it in. The spool of thread is very weak, and you better be snaring chipmunks and catching baby fish. The compass is about .5" in diameter and is all but useless. It must be almost perfectly level to work, and mine is about 45 degrees from north. The pencil is fairly useless as they leave very little paper to write on and the only way to sharpen it would be the razor or a rough surface. The whistle is extremely cheap and flimsy. The duct-tape is woefully short. And the book of matches is very useless. Starting a fire with those kind is very difficult compared to a bic lighter or wooden matches.

The sheet of instructions and uses that come with the kit are also horribly inadequate.

This is OK as a gag gift, but if you're counting on it for survival you shouldn't leave the city. The whistle and compass are toys, the compass isn't even the diameter of a dime. A bandaid isn't survival equipment, if your wound can be treated with a bandaid, it can be ignored. The so called "energy nugget" is a tootsy roll. The fishing line is sewing thread. The duct tape is a 2"x 4" piece stuck to some wax paper. Chewing gum isn't a survival item. The only thing in this kit that might make a difference in a survival situation is the book of matches. The items in this "survival kit" aren't worth the ridiculous price.

more of a novelty item than anything else. But that being said packing this in a sardine can was incredibly smart as when you open the can, you now have a cutting edge (can lid) and a pot to boil water or a mirror to reflect light (the can itself) everything inside is self explanatory

I will throw this in the trunk of my car and forget about it unless one day i find myself completely stranded and desperate.

I bought 4 of these to put in a mini survival kit that I was making for each of my young men in my family. Every single one of them raved about how awesome it was that so much stuff was in one can. They wanted someone to open one of theirs so they could see how it was all jammed in there, but no one would. Each wanted to keep their kit in their cars or their survival bag.

What do you get the outdoor lover who has everything? This was a gift to my hubby and he was surprised and amazed at the gift when he pulled it from his stocking! I got the idea from a Pinterest post about great manly stocking stuffers and she was right. He loves that it is small for packing and so versatile!

For those that know something about bush-craft/wilderness survival, this is a pretty nice kit.... and yes it is actually functional. I have used one of these in a field training weekend and was very impressed. Easy to carry on hikes, I keep one in the car and in my pack.
