My Current PSK is 5x4x1.5 Inch at the widest midsections and weights 12 Oz's. The Heavy Bulk of it is a Mk5, Ronson Jetlite, Streamlite Micro. I think its a Major Tradeoff for size and weight to have reliable items that make the survival ordeal abit easier.

For most applications ( hiking/ camping) make it so small you won't leave it behind. Figure a pound max.

There is a limit?

Actually a pound would be ideal but currently it sits around two.
They will swing back to the belief that they can make people...better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave.

Urban PSK (large version): Lightweight backpack that gets thrown in the back of my Jeep each day. It's with me during work and commuting.
Small PSK: Small tin with lid that holds a few essential items. Fits into pants pocket.
