34 Items For Survival: ITS Mini Survival Kit

We’ve all heard of the “Altoids” tin survival/medical/whatever kits, or perhaps even built one ourselves. I’ll admit that I’ve even built a few, and they just never came out with all the stuff I wanted to carry. I tried a couple commercial ones and, again, was never pleased with the results. One of the problems I always ran into was smashing the case or bending the lid.

The crew at ITS Tactical has had one for a little bit, and I had honestly forgotten about it until they sent out a notification of an update to their “Mini Survival Kit” in a new crush proof case. ITS has always done a pretty good job of vetting gear and not sticking in useless crap, nor low quality products.

What do you carry? It is much different than the above list? Would you swap out any items and for what?

The ITS Mini Survival Kit comes in at $35 (which honestly, after ordering individual components from Amazon comes out pretty close–and a number of the items are sealed for added protection). You can pick one up at: https://store.itstactical.com/bushcraft/its-mini-survival-kit-msk.html?
