A Word From the Author:

"This book is not about primitive skills, wilderness living or long term survival in the wilderness. This book is not about advanced survival techniques or skills. This book is about teaching you how to survive a short term survival situation with the aid of a survival kit and the skills to use the kit effectively. These situations occur all the time..." — John D. McCann

Mini survival kits

Mini kits are the easiest to carry, so there is really no excuse not to carry one. On the other hand, they provide the least amount of survival equipment, especially shelter items. Therefore, select your components wisely, always going for the smallest sized items and multi-purpose features.

Mini kits can be packaged in any small container, from an Altoids tin to a flash drive case. If the container is small and will hold the items you want and still fit in a pocket or small area, you can make it work. You can also carry a mini kit in a small belt case and supplement it with shelter items or other larger items like a full size compass. You can carry it as is, or always remove the mini kit and stick it in your pocket. The photographs illustrate some of the various configurations you can come up with.
