    I don’t understand them. Order in June last year for a nano wallet. Till today yet to get my item. Contacted them Time and time Again to ask about it no reply.

      You must have slipped through the net, I got in on the initial batch then ordered ad received a second within the space of weeks.

      Eric is a horrible man, he keeps designing stuff I just have to throw mo eye at to make go away, thankfully being in the UK precludes me splashing out for complete kits….

    What kind of antibiotic?

    Looks like a pretty solid kit but I’ve never been able to figure out why all these kits include matches rather than a small bic lighter.

    • Mike Nomad says:

      My guess would be the issues surrounding the mailing of flammable gas/liquid.

    • mark says:

      It’s easier for someone to just toss in a mini-Bic once they get the kit, but not everyone has UCO stormproof matches on hand.

      From an emergency firestarting standpoint, where you may be starting a fire in the rain or high wind, the UCO’s are really hard to beat. They’re like a tiny 15 second road flare. Having once spent the better part of 5 minutes trying to light a cigarette on a very windy beach with my Bic, I’ve come to appreciate the importance of a windproof firestarter 😉

    I have a question that maybe a current member of the military or a survival expert can answer. When was the last time a US Service member serving in harms way was put into a survival situation and had to rely on using fishing gear in their survival kit to survive and obtain food? I just don’t understand this obsession with having fishing gear in a military survival kit. Perhaps a pilot flying over open ocean might need such equipment, or being on a reality TV show, or having the first name Bear might require you to carry hooks and line on your person at all times, but really in today’s battle space is fishing hooks and line really necessary?

      Chausser1814,

      Not a survival expert but I have received some top notch survival training and carried a survival kit religiously for most of my service. YMMV

      Is a fishing kit absolutely necessary? Not in all circumstances. But even in desert areas you might be working near waterways. Think Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

      One of the aspects of survival kits I always kept in mind was maximizing the inclusion of multipurpose items. Fishing line can be used for any number of other emergency cordage purposes besides catching fish. It is light, strong and doesn’t take up much space.

      Rambo even used some to suture a wound in the first movie. My advise would be to realistically assess what your survival needs and priorities are for your mission. If the fishing kit makes sense take it. If not, leave it behind. But in any case practice with all the items in the survival kit you decide to carry before you go to see what works for you.

    Throw away the fishing kit and put in a survival blanket/poncho. Otherwise you’ll be DEAD of hypothermia before you are ever rescued. Shelter is vastly more important than going fishing.

    • Bill says:

      Or just wrap the thing in a big trash bag, the original field expedient bivy bad/poncho

    Shelter number 1! ! Someone gets it!
