Medical Kits Pocket Survival Pak
|Adventure Medical Kits Pocket Survival Pak - A pocket survival kit that really could save your life! The Pocket Survival Pak contains a collection of survival tools for when you find yourself abandoned, stranded, or lost in the outdoors. Keep it in your pocket, or on your person, because, “If it isn’t with you, it can’t save you.” This kit is small enough to fit the tiniest kayak, and is there to help when you need it most. The pouch is waterproof and floatable, while the easy seal allows for quick access and closure. Contains 26 items, including a signal mirror, fire starter, whistle, scalpel blade, fishhooks, line and duct tape.
I think this survival kit deserves another 5-star review. At 3.9 oz., this kit is small, and that's a good thing to me. It's amazing how much stuff is in this little bag. All of the items are of the best quality. The signal mirror is beautiful. The inclusion of a lens magnifier is something I haven't seen in almost any other kit (great backup for fire starting). I know the firestarter that comes with it is normally about $8 just by itself. I just tried out the Fox 40 Micro whistle, and it's so loud, my ears started ringing (be careful). For a complete personal kit, I would recommend adding a knife, light, survival blanket, water purification tablets, wire saw, and a water bag. For the price, you can't get a better survival kit than this. I am really impressed by the quality here. My only minor complaint is that I wish they made the bag that the items come in a little bigger. I have trouble fitting everything in there properly and keeping it closed after I've taken items out and tried to get everything back in. That's almost not even worth mentioning though because this kit is excellent. I've bought other kits before... the kinds that tell you they have a signal mirror until you find out they mean the inside of the tin can the items come in. Not cool. This AMK Pocket Survival Pack is the best.
I have three or four of these little gems and recommend them highly! While any kit this small is going to be pretty bare-bones, when the chips are down better the basic kit in your pocket than the 30 pound Bug-Out Bag sitting back in your living room. And all the basics are represented by very high quality items; I'm actually very impressed. The Fox whistle is very, very loud, and the signal mirror is superb. Heck, both of them are fairly expensive on their own. The Spark-Lite firestarter, when used with the supplied tinder, is amazing. I've seldom failed to light the tinder on the first strike. Again, it's small enough that there are compromises. Water is very important but is hardly addressed. You are supposed to be able to make a cup from the foil but good luck with that. The kit is designed to be non-expiring, which is why water purification tabs arent' included. Fortunately there's just enough room in the kit for a few SMALL additions. I added a small aqua-pouch to mine. All in all a very well thought out mini PSK. Anyone into camping, fishing, hiking or hunting would be well served to keep a PSK like this on their person whenever venturing into the wild. Hopefully supplemented with a few choice items (eg water, survival blanket) but just the contents of the PSK could keep you alive.

If you're the least-bit preparedness minded, this belongs in your back pocket or purse. Adventure Medical makes these and puts quality tools in them. Adding stuff is a dubious proposition, as the thing's pretty well full, but there's so much here already. I never leave the house without this and my Swiss Army Knife.
