Re: BOAT (Bug-Out Altoids Tin)

zippo tins are on the small side but perfect for a mini psk or a fire kit.

Re: My BOB rough build

If you want a good cheap but quality fixed blade don't overlook a Mora by Frost a Swedish company. Their knives go for about $10-20, great for bushcraft and they make good inexpensive starter blades before you go off investing a lot of money in to something better or tacticool.

Glad they still make this fine produc...

Re: Greatest BOB - Water backpack? 25L !!

I pity the person carrying that thing around when filled to max capacity. In the army on forced marches we had a few "squad support items" water jerry can with bad shoulder straps, a stretcher and a radio. I've had the privilege of hauling the 10L can + my basic load out and it's not a pretty sight ...

I look at blackhawk as a cheap rip off of eagle industries. Eagle makes some top notch nylon here in US.

Re: Waterproofing your Kit.

aloksaks are great, cost more than ziplocks but more durable seal and construction.

all the content of my survival kit and fak are in aloksaks and i use the bigger sized one as map case.

reminds me that i should do a review on my kits.

i like your setup. not to downplay you in any way but wouldn't it be better to keep the striker from your firesteel on some cord so you won't have to unscrew the key ring? your knife can be used instead but depending on the blade it might get ruined and need sharpening. i keep my fireseel http://www...
