    You could integrate most of that stuff into a paracord watch band except maybe the mirror and multi-tool. Granted it would be somewhat lumpy depending on how you designed the inner sleeve but you would have the added benefit of two small lengths of paracord and you could easily integrate an exacto blade for crafting small traps, cleaning small game and the like.

      The Recon 6 also comes with a paracord bracelet and the food grade container that it is packaged in, can be re-purposed as a fire in a can survival project.

    Dump the altoids can level survival gear and just wear a good watch. Seiko Divers pretty much epitomize the kind needed – 18 to 21 jewel, at least 18000 bph, auto wind (emp resistant) and actually Diver tested and rated, not just some number on the dial. Plenty just like it to choose from – don’t go overboard on the tritium, just get a good quality one reputed to last the entire night – which eliminates a lot of poser show boat watches.

    A good stainless link band is all you need, webbing picks up skin cells which incubate bacteria, absorb body fluids or petroleum distillates. Silicon bands aren’t durable and will rip open losing you the watch.

    Save the survival kit for real life size tools and stash it in your lunch bag. Careful with the large knives, your workplace may have policy on that. And if your workplace is the great outdoors, don’t skimp on good tools and an appropriately durable back pack to carry them in.

    Flip back watches with all sorts of gizmos and compasses have been around since the ’70s. And paracord even earlier – most of the actual users moved thru that phase twenty years ago. Being seen with it now marks you as an “operator” – which isn’t OPSEC at all, it’s just a dead giveaway someone isn’t what they seem to be.

    He’s made a name for himself alright. Not any you’d use in polite company. The guy’s a businessman I’ll give him that, I just wish you could mix his drive with someone else’s ideas.

      Hi Luke
      I have a new TV show coming out this fall and it is made just for guys like you. I will give you a national platform to showcase YOUR ideas then Guys like you can sit back and take shots at it. If it survives the trolls you, would have the next million dollar winner product that could help save peoples lives and even give American jobs in the process.Time to step up.
