Izzy at the blog The Florida Steampunker offers an alternative about what should go in a survival kit.For a couple months now I've been meaning to totally restructure and replace my large survival kit. Now it's not exactly very large. But as my kits and needs go, it's considered large. Thanks to Best Glide/Adventure Survival Equipment having a lot of great products, I was able to accomplish the task.
One of the main problems I had with my old kit was the container. I didn't like it very much. When I ordered it I wasn't aware of how poorly made it was. Or how it really was far more round and limiting than it appeared. Fortunately the "Adventurer Survival Kit Box" works quite well. Basically a stepped up and rounded version of the old BCB Mess Tin. It's not rated as being capable of cooking or boiling water. But it does boast being fire proof and water resistant. I'm fairly confident that it's extremely water resistant.
Do take a list of what material go into this kit here.
