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.

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.....

Kit will be used in the camping trip backpack. Not opened as that will be impossible to re-close.

This kit has some nice conveniences but one can't realistically believe they will be able to survive for long on its contents. Its a nice to have addition to your kit but don't buy this and think you'll last out in the wild with it in hand.

I bought this a while ago and haven't had the need to crack it open until recently. It is chock full of neat little goodies; and the sardine can everything is in is an awesome idea. It's waterproof and floats while it is unopened; and there are a tons of common survival items inside. There is a little of everything inside, it's not fancy but there's a lot in there and if need be you can even cook things in the can. The thing drifted around in my car for a long time; got things dropped and spilled on it, stepped on and tossed from one place to another. It may of had some scuffs and dents, but it never broke open and nothing was ruined inside.

These are quick and ok for the purpose. I will tell you they are in a very soft sardine can. I ordered 3 and one came bent. But nifty little throw items for my bug out bag and 3 day hiking pack. Cheap price. Vert light weight.

I bought a few of these for my family members for gifting. Theyve been a hit. Always a conversation starter and good for a laugh.

The contents are practical and I keep on in my bag.
