Making Your Own Survival Tin

Here are the specific items I recommend placing in your Altoids or similar sized tin:

  1. Ritter Mk5 CRKT Knife (comes with an Altoids size storage tin): Perhaps the most important item in your kit. This excellent little knife can be used for constructing a shelter, hunting, skinning, a ferro rod striker, and for self-defense.
  2. Nano LED Mini-Flashlight: A great little flashlight. LEDs provide more light and consume less power than traditional lights. Can also be used for signaling. 
  3. Emergency Water Bag (1 Quart): Water is critical as you can only live three days without it. Yes, this item takes up a lot of room in your tin, but it provides an effective way to collect water from natural sources like lakes and streams.
  4. Water Purification Pills (4 ea):  Each pill sterilizes 1 liter of water. Remember to wait the required amount of time for the bacteria to be killed. 
  5. Compass, Button Size: Navigational aid for those who are directionally challenged and for those who are in bad weather and/or poor visibility.
  6. Matches, waterproof (6 ea): Fire is absolutely vital in a survival situation. It can keep you warm, cook your food, sterilize your drinking water, and can be used as another source for light at night. Having a fire is also good for morale and if you’re in a survival situation, that can be pretty important.
  7. Match Striker: Needed to light your matches.  
  8. Cotton Tinder (3 ea): A great fire starting aid. 
  9. Spark-Lite Firestarter (Orange): Another great source for starting fires. Can start 1,000 fires.
  10. Vargo Titanium Whistle:  A durable signaling device to call for help. 
  11. P-38/51 Can Opener: Can also be used as a small cutting tool, ferro rod striker, or flat-bladed screw driver. 
  12. Tin Foil: Can be used in cooking, for signaling, for collecting water, or as a drinking cup.
  13. Duct Tape: A multipurpose gem and a MacGyver favorite. Duct tape can be used for repairs, restraining, affixing, and attaching. It’s use is limited only by your imagination.
  14. Fishing Kit: Small assortment of hooks and sinkers. You gotta eat and being able to fish may help with the boredom, too.
  15. Fishing Line, 20ft (bobbin): Can be used not only for fishing, but also for clothing repairs, and for stitching up deep cuts.  
  16. Alcohol Wipes (1 ea): For cleaning wounds and as a fire starting aid. 
  17. Band Aid (1 ea): For cuts, abrasions, and blisters.
  18. Butterfly sutures (1 ea): For closing up cuts and wounds. 
  19. Needle: For digging out deep splinters and along with a little fishing line can be used to stitch up wounds and repair clothing.  
  20. Benadryl (2 ea): Allergy season can be rough! Also great for allergic reactions to stings. 
  21. Imodium AD (1 ea): For when you get a bad case of the runs from bad food or water. 
  22. Aleve (2 ea): Pain Killer and Relaxer. 
  23. Safety Pin: Perfect for securing items to your clothing, removing deep splinters, and for making temporary repairs to clothing.
  • Ranger Band: Essentially a giant rubber band cut from an old bicycle inner-tube and used to secure the tin. Can be used as a small tourniquet or as part of a sling-shot.
