Some might consider this kit more of a gimmick -- a survival kit in a can? The trick about survival kits is to actually have a kit on your person when you desperately need it.
When I go hiking, I normally carry a small CamelBak pack filled with water and my survival gear: multiple ways to start a fire, first aid supplies, some snacks and energy bars, a pocket knife and a variety of other items which could include a GPS, a small camera, tissue pack, a signal mirror, and my cell phone. It's not a large kit, but there are times when I don't carry it.
The Whistle Creek Survival Kit fits in a normal shirt pocket. You can stash one in your car's glove compartment, in your hunting jacket, fishing vest, your bicycle's repair kit, at your workplace . . . any number of places and situations where you might not carry a larger 10 essentials kit.
Contents include: fishing hook and line, compass, tea and sugar, first aid supplies, duct tape, matches, whistle, signal mirror, razor blade, fire starter cube, chewing gum, salt and a safety pin.
