SOL is a good company and has some quality products, but unfortunately this "kit" is not one of them. For what you get the kit is far too bulky, not nearly comprehensive enough for the price, and the combo knife/whistle/light is just outright junk.

You can build your own much more comprehensive "pocket kit". I'd start with a top quality Wenger 16981 lock blade Swiss Army Knife (has a great saw and other useful tools and it is available here at Amazon) and add the other items included in this SOL Kit. You won't spend much more than the SOL kit and you'll have much better equipment in a smaller space.

I bought a survival kit tin from bepreparedtosurvive and added Katadyn MicroPur Purification Tablets - In Your Choice of Styles, a liter water bag, a Streamlight 73001 Nano Light Miniature Keychain LED Flashlight, Black, a Adventure Medical Kits Fox 40 Rescue Howler Whistle the Wenger 16981 Evolution Lock S 13 Swiss Army Knife Ergo Grip With Safety Lock Blade a few strips of removable backing duct tape, a few survival food tablets, some 250lb kevlar thread, safety pins (free from the dry cleaner), a signal mirror, a fresnel lens (solar fire starter), a flint + steel and some tinder, a few fishhooks and small spool of BRAIDED fishing line (doesn't tangle like monofiliment line).

I have been waiting for this item since it was first announced.

The list price from the 3rd party amazon seller ($84) is much higher than the actual MSRP ($60). However amazon's discount brings it down to a reasonable cost, compared to other buying options. Just make sure you don't think you are getting 40% off, because you aren't.

The case is big. Think 2 or 3 altoids tins stacked on each other, or 2-3 decks of playing cards. It does fit well into a baggy jeans or jacket pocket though. The case is very well made, from nice hard plastic. The main container has a rubber o-ring to provide waterproofing. It seems like it would take reasonable drops or impacts quite well.

Unfortunately, the usable space of the box is much less than you would get from 2/3 altoids cans. This is because over 1/2 of the thickness of the box is taken up by the built in tools. Now, if you consider that you would also take up that space if things were loose in the box, it comes out pretty fair, but there is "dead" loss due to the structure that holds things in place, and you lost flexibility in choosing what to pack. I wish they had the case more open, with the tools just loose inside to maximize space and flexibility.

The knife is nice, but not very durable. It is very small (swiss army sized?), but fits well in the hand, and has a nice blade. The knife is exceptionally easy to open one handed (the easiest knife to open I have, except for the assisted open ones). The handle is light plastic however, so any heavy duty (or really even light/medium) chopping or battoning would destroy it immediately. The knife is really only useful for cutting cord/cloth/seatbelt or perhaps shaving some small sticks into tinder etc. You could use it to fillet a fish, or clean a small animal.

Not much larger than those (most not all that great) "survival kits in a sardine can" kits, this is the "right stuff" in a small package.

OK, first of all, you have plenty of signaling- the knife has a 100db whistle & a handy LED light, and the kit flips open to reveal a signaling mirror with a aiming aid. All three critical and useful.

Next, you have a decent sturdy knife, and a one hand operable flint firestarter. Aiding you in firestarting are 4 pieces of Tinder Quick, which I have reviewed and tested (I suggested getting a small pack here on Amazon and practicing a few times before setting off).

Also included are: Aluminum Foil, a button compass, a small but decent fishing kit, some sewing stuff and paracord. All good stuff, but not as necessary as basic signaling and firestarting.

I'd put one of SOL's fine survival bivvies or blankets in the other pocket, and maybe a tiny first aid kit, and be good to go. Nice here is that this isn't overkill for "just a day hike".

All contained in a small lightweight waterproof bright orange case.

I know nothing about survival, which is likely why I think this kit is great. I haven't actually used it (and hopefully never will!!) but living in a potential earthquake zone, I thought I should get something for the car. Seems to be pretty comprehensive for short term survival. What I really love is the guide that comes with it. It's really well written, easy to understand and assumes nothing about your prior experience or knowledge. Does not take up much space in the glove compartment.
