Now that's a kit [eyes bugging out of head, jaw dropped and tongue laying on the ground, drool mess everywhere]. Great detail too. And looks like all quality gear so no let downs at the worst possible moment.

"1 small vial of Bog Myrtle oil."

This caught my eye. What do you use Bog Myrtle oil for?

Do you know of a USA source for the aluminium containers like the BCB mini-mess tin. I would like to try one as a container for my PSK.

Just a suggestion. Go over to the forum on Urban Survival at this Web site. Find the recent thread about "urban survival kit". Go to page 10. Scroll down, and you'll find a long comment from me which starts with the line "Let me add something here".

You might want to give those comments some thought. There's nothing wrong at all with buying a survival kit. But many new people become frustrated when they find they can't use it as they had hoped. The alternate approach I laid out on the other thread might help you to focus your thoughts a bit more.

Mainly as an insect repellent, but it can also be used as a anti bacterial, anti fungal treatment and insect bite and skin rash relief.

You should be able to get one here at a reasonable price.

Best glide is an official US BCB distributor, you should see it on the main page. I've seen a few on ebay as well, so you might want to take a look there.

Also, Survival Resorces sells some similar mini mess tins

My kit from my first few days on this site. Basically that same kit is tucked into my car kit now. But a virtually identical kit, minus the carbiner, was squeezed into an altoids tin.

My pseudo-EDC kit (not always carried due to uniform restrictions). Still useful start for an outdoor kit though.
