Survival kit

In addition to my survival pouch I have a few connected pouches and tools. Small enough to grab in an emergency and it also has the ability to attach to a molle backpack or had d rings that can be used with a strap to sling over the shoulder. It has molle straps to attach other items to make a complete bug out kit. This post I am going to list the contents of this kit on its own. In another post I will list contents of the bug out to complete the entire bug out kit. This is mainly a first aid/ survival kit. Does not have food or water but ways of obtaining both and the tools needed to survive for an extended period of time. Most of its contents are good for one or a limited number of uses. Remember the rule” two is one and one is none” this kit has multiple ways to start fire and purify water and other redundancies. If in an emergency these items will allow me to quickly do the things I need. Some items are better for reserve. An example being wet fire tinder. It takes a spark easy burns hot in any conditions. If I am not in an immediate need for fire other methods such as bow drill or hand drill should be used in order to save wet fire for tougher conditions for fire starting. In theory this kit and my knowledge can help me survive indefinitely. Though I may use contents in the kit they can be replaced. Not always with the same item but something similar, possibly found in nature. Sticking with the wet fire example natural tinder bundles can be made and stored for future use if needed. I will now list contents of this kit. I will not go into detail on all the items most are self explanatory.
