DIY: Make an Altoids tin survival kit

Posted on August 25, 2006. Filed under: Advice, Projects |

Field & Stream online has a step-by-step for creating your very own Altoids tin survival kit, complete with all the gear you’d need to survive in the wild (well, maybe not you, but someone who doesn’t cry if they don’t hear the Windows/Mac boot-up music every morning).

The “Pocket kit” includes fire-starting gear, an LED flashlight, a compass, water bag, iodine tablets, fishing gear – and oh so much more, all stuffed into your tiny little Altoids tin. We’ve covered several inventive uses for the lovable Altoids tin, but there’s always room for more.
