The AEGIS Pocket Survival Kit by Fire Water Survival

At Blade Show I met Craig Tonelli, owner of Fire Water Survival. He was showing the AEGIS Pocket Survival Kit, which boasts a rather unique combination of components.

When you first see it, it looks common enough, what with the 12 foot of 550 cord wrapping. But once you remove that, you expose what appears to be a metal capsule.

Turns out, it’s a collapsible metal cup which also stores the other components. In addition to the cordage and water purification capability, it also contains fishing kit, fire starter and cutting tool.


There is a larger kit named the Chief which is based on the same concept but with more of it.
