Designed and packaged by Survival Resources, the Minimalist™ Pocket Survival Kit is about as small as it gets, and is ideal for a jacket pocket, small fanny pack, or a purse. It provides items to fulfill four of the major component groups. It includes a Mini-Match™ mini-magnesium firestarter and 2 Tinder-Quick™ fire tabs for fire starting, a Whistle for signaling, a 20mm Button Compass for navigation, a folding pocket saw from the tool group, a mini lead pencil, and 2 sheets of water-proof paper. This kit doesn't include all the component groups, but it is based on the philosophy that "something is better than nothing." And as discussed below, it can be supplemented to include the other component groups. The vial measures 3-3/8" long, by 1" in diameter. Weight: 1.1 oz.
Note: The above kit provides items from the component groups; fire, signaling, navigation, and tools. We highly recommend that you always carry a good quality knife. You should also carry something from the remainder of the component groups: Shelter (such as a survival blanket and an emergency poncho), Light (such as a Photon Micro-Light II or Princeton-Tec Blast), Water (a water bottle and purification tablets), First Aid (such as a pocket medic), Food Collection (brass snare wire and a small fishing kit), as well as some misc., multi-purpose devices. With the addition of these items, you will be well on your way to being prepared for an emergency situation.
