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.Read more ›
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 will throw this in the trunk of my car and forget about it unless one day i find myself completely stranded and desperate.
It literally is in a sardine can. Everything is packed in there.
I wonder if you use it, if it's possible to seal the contents inside....
