YOu might want to get yourself some tiny ziplocks. One to keep the matches in so they are a little more protected, and one to put the tealight in. Those get nasty in the summer.

Pretty nice kit you have there. To me it seems like you have all the basics well covered.

That tin seems a little bigger than an Altoids. Do you have the dimensons and know how to procure one? Containers for PSKs seems to be a never ending quest.

Nice Kit Jim! I'm really curious where you got that whistle. I'm looking for a flat and thin one just such as that!

Oh, and what's the "signal" made from? Why not go with at least one of the cheap steel ones? Would that be too thick for your kit? Seems like you have it packed pretty well, so that may be the case.

the whistle is the perry whistle made by BCB. It really isn't that small, but has nice shape for these small kinds of kits.

Kits lacks waterpurification tabs and a proper signal mirror. Waterproof bags, appears to be very friagile and lacking in the closure section.

I looked at the BCB site, and I saw this whistle in their survival kits but not for individual sale. Also, is there anywhere in the states to get their kit?

There are 10 micropur purifying tabs( bottom left, grey pack)
Waterbags are not the best available, will be replaced with something better when I find one.
I agree with you on the signal mirror.

their kit can be purchased almost on every serious outdoor-website.
Whistle isn't sold individually. I got mine from a BCB tin

Your right about the 'signal', but as you said that would become to bulky. Also I carry a small mirror with my EDC.

Overall dimensions are 10 / 9 / 3 cm.
It's a one-off, so I don't know where you could get one.
I also don't know anything about american addresses.
(Dutch you know)

It is to bad that a lot of stuff you take for granted in the US, isn't available in Europe and The Netherlands. It can only be purchased on the web. You guy's can get anything in huge survival stores.

Examples: Povodine-Iodine swabs, Antibiotic Ointment, Pyrotechnics, Sure-Fire, doug's PSP, Epirb's, etc.
