Those look rather promising. I'll have to keep my eyes open for them. Since I rarely venture into convenience stores; are there particluar chains of stores that seem to carry them? [/quote]

i have seen them at wal-mart and walgreens. in the isle where they have cigs/tobacco. Walgreens usually has them here.(MO) pm me i can drop one in the mail for ya.
Do you know where your towel is?

Thanks EL!
I'm just down I-44 a ways so I'm hopefull that the Walgreens or Walmarts around here will have them too. I appreciate your offer and if I can't find one I might take you up on it. Thanks again.

You will see the in Quebec. That is about all I saw in Montreal three years ago after the TSA stole all my Bic's....
I do the things that I must, and really regret, are unfortunately necessary.

Old thread wake up...

Holy cow, the original poster has got to have some skill! He has everything he needs in a tiny little setup.
If you're reading this, it's too late.

Thanks ireckon,

I still carry the same kit, but find it missing 1st Aid, water and shelter components. The best thing about the kit is that it is always with me, a middle-aged guy carrying a cellphone in a black nylon holster is normal. The Gerber STL 2.0 knife I use daily, the lighter a couple times a week and the diamond sharpener maybe once a month (usually for other peoples blades).

I did both a week of moose and week of deer hunting this fall and found that my recently built small survival kit in a BCB Mini Mess Tin was too heavy and large for pocket carry, therefore it rode in my backpack with the shelter kit. This made me feel less that prepared on my person, even with my normal on-body wilderness EDC items present. I ended-up also carrying a supplemented AMK/DK PSP in my coat pocket.

Since there was no cell phone service I did not carry my Mini-Kit so I am going to assemble a new small kit in a medium-size tobacco tin (a little bigger than an Altoids Tin) and carry that in a slightly larger Nite-Ize pouch similar to the one used in the Mini-Kit. That way I will always have the kit with me and it is easy to move from one set of clothing to another.

Sounds like another mid-winter project to me.
