A DIY gift idea for your friend who likes to be prepared for anything.
This is ideal for anyone who wants to have the essential survival gear along each time they head into the field. Everything fits in the Altoids tin. It fulfills all the component groups … except for shelter and protection, but add a survival blanket to your pocket and you’ll be covered. —John D. McCann
There are several versions of this kit at Field & Stream’s website, along with specific recommendations, links to where to buy the stuff etc… To save you time look at the first slide here and then skip to the last slide “Make Your Own: Three Steps to a Life-Saving Kit” here, then go through the slideshow of options.
