Altoids Tin Type Mini Survival Kit
Having a few small resources that are difficult to reproduce in the wild can make a big difference in your ability to survive a wilderness survival situation. Take a look at the video below to see my mini survival kit. Mini survival kits are a personalized thing and you should certainly put items in your own mini survival kit that will be most useful to you based on your own skill set. I believe most of the items I put in my kit cover the basics of what can be covered in such a small kit, but that is certainly up for debate. Knowledge and attitude are by far the most important things to have in a survival situation, but having a few of these extra items like those in my mini survival kit can certainly help out as well.
