The three here will get any untrained person killed. Fire a first try, get a good pocket knife, 2ft duct tape wrapped around a lighter, a stainless steel water bottle (not travel coffee mug), and a pair of simple plastics – a.disposable poncho and emergency space (mylar) blanket. This will prodi

the orange one is pretty cool, the u can survive can is not that cool it does not even have a first aid kit,and the last one is ok but for sure the orange one is the best but it would be even better if it came with matches

I would be more furious when that thread snaps and my fish gets away… but in truth I wouldn't use these kits unless I'm adding them to my pack as extra supplys.

The orange bottle kit is obviously best of the lot but hard to carry in a pocket. Portability is most important because a person needs to have the kit with them as often as possible. a good multi-tool and a survival kit with clear poncho and survival blanket is best. Water, fire, navigation, food. Self education is most critical. Do not rely on the Government to save you. Walk home. We were born on this planet and can easily survive if we understand and act. Don't be a loser. Be a survivor.

if I were in a survival situation, and I needed to rely on one of these things, and i opened one up and found ONE fish hook, I would be furious

@robbabcock1969 Again, good points. Your comments are spot on and not too critical at all. In my own kit I carry 3 hooks, sinkers, and even a couple small spinner lures. lol, you could always while away the time whittling a fish hook with the razor blade 😀

BTW, I think the kit-in-a-bottle is a decent way to go, with one major caveat: You need somewhere to put the survival gear if you need to use the bottle for water. I'd suggest a plastic bag and some light cordage. You can dump the gear in the bag, tie it shut and make a shoulder sling and carry it pretty easily. Of course, that presupposes you have something to carry the bottle in.

The problem with having just one hook is- what if you lose it? Hooks are cheap and light, pack several!

True, combining them would round things out nicely. Again, I hope I didn't come across as overly critical. My survival philosophy is based on the Rule of Three- 3 minutes w/o air, 3 hours w/o shelter, 3 days w/o water & 3 weeks w/o food. Another maxim I keep in mind is "2 is 1 and 1 is none." Redundancy is key regarding the most important needs ie fire, shelter & water. I feel those needs must be addressed by the best gear you can afford and manage to carry.
