The following is an excerpt from

“Our kit, assembled right here in southern Ohio, is sealed air and water-tight in a “hearty soup” style can. Weighing in at a hefty 1.2 pounds, we are confident you’ll have all the basics for 72 hours, or longer.

The contents of the kit follow:

1,000 calories in emergency food bars — they’re quite good…similar to a dry Christmas cookie.

14-function swiss style camp knife including signal mirror, LED flashlight, scissors, 2.5″ blade, 1.5″ blade, leather punch, can opener, bottle opener, small and medium flat head screwdrivers, button compass, leather threader, corkscrew, file, mini phillips driver/pick.

3 potable water tablets for making 3 safe-to-drink quarts of water for hydration.

1 emergency blanket for applying to a hypothermic person, or to keep yourself from becoming wet or cold.

3 storm-proof, ultimate matches. 3 standard, water-proof matches. Strike paper. 4 fire starting cubes.

3 bandaids, 1 anti-biotic ointment, 2 sterile “pop-up” hand towels, 1 tampon (for normal or multi-use).

1 survival fishing kit with bobber, 7 hooks, 30′ of 8 lbs. test line, 4 artificial lures, 4 sinkers.

1 plastic lid, 1 aluminum can/cup.

It’s a real kit with actual, useable contents designed to keep you alive for 72 hours minimum with the potential to keep you alive, warm, fed and useful for a week or longer depending on your level of expertise.”

3 days? All I need is a lighter a cotton ball. A flashlight. a bottle water. A knife. And a plastic ziplock bag to waterproof the lighter. It's only 3 days lmao.

These kits are cool but there's something that bothers me about them. They're sealed, so if the factory accidentally forgot something, you're not going to find out until you need it.

I don't get why they give you 6 matches and 3 fire starters. if you need fire, you want a bic, just put a bic in the can

can't they add more matches, I see lots of survival kits and lots of people only put 3-5 matches, I have a full pack, gotta take into oconsideartion wind, rain and fire might not start on first match

water is soooooooo much more important than food you can live without food for a long time

ha tampon i wouldnt be worrying about that in a serious emergency. paper towels and rubber bands

THis can is the biggest piece of shit I have seen in a while. In its place I would use a coffee can, metal camp mug, bic lighter birthday candles. I'm now better prepared, and 15 dollars richer.

it's easy to fish without fish gear put hand in water and grab them I do it all the time

I wasn't going to watch this video because while I would never buy a ready made kit, but I was curious to hear your impressions. For those with little knowledge or experience, it's helpful to get people thinking and motivated. If this kit serves as a launch point then it's has value. Some might buy it and some will figure why not just put their own kit together.

My one concern, being in Florida, is that while reuse of cans is cheap and convenient, is that they rust in just days. So while a fan of DIY projects, I would have to advocate using good quality water bottles and cookware. Have you ever tried using cans or had a problem with anything seemingly rusting beyond your ability to prevent or control it? Metal can be painted, but that can pose a health risk particularly when trying to cook with them. And our knives are exposed all the time.

I would have paracord wrapped around all the stuff inside so maybe like 10 to 12 feet of paracord

I never see the use in bringing band aids with you. IMO they are only useful to make a little kid feel better about a scraped knee. They are useless as a real bandage.
