Altoids Tin Survival Kit
Most of this stuff I had lying around with exception to the compass, whistle, condom, and the 2x3 inch baggies. I figured I might as well throw a survival kit together. I will replace the one I carry with this one, it has all the same stuff plus a few added items, and takes up much less space in my pack.

  • First Aid Packet: 2 Band Aids, 2 small band aids, 2 butterfly closures,  triple antibiotic ointment.
