Tiny Survival Kits you can fit in your pocket


What would you keep in your tiny survival kits?

Tiny Survival KitsQuestion for you, can almost everything you’ll need to survive an emergency fit into an Altoids can or something of similar size?  Well, we found six different versions of survival kits that meet that description over at

Each one has it owns unique list of contents , and not one is the same.  What does that tell us? It says that everyone has their own description of what it means and takes to survive and that extends well beyond the limits of an Altoids can.  But you already knew that.

So what do you need to survive anyway?  According to a recent article we read the 5 basic needs to survive are:

1 Water
2. Food
3. Shelter
4. Fire
5. Signaling

I’m not sure about #5 as a basic need, but it sure could come in handy if you want to get out of some unforsaken place.  As we mentioned, not everyone agrees however as to what the contents should be  for a tiny survival kit. These 6 survival kits offer a wide range of ideas as to what should be included and not included.
