ODA 226's Wilderness Ditch Kit

This is my entry to the Zombie Squad Magazine Pouch Survival Kit Competition. I used an ATS Canteen Carrier as the base for my kit. Trying to keep true to the competition, I kept almost everything inside the Canteen Carrier with the exception of things I feel are tactically necessary to carry on the outside such as a red-lens light, a military lensatic compass, a signal whistle, a homemade rock sling and 50’ of braided 550 cord that is used as a sling to carry the kit.
Here is a video of the concept:

Here it is being carried with the 50’ Braided 550 Cord:

The inner carrier is a Coleman Thermos Bottle that is fit inside of a Coleman 16 ounce pot:

As I stated in the video, I always pack for operation redundancy. For example, in this kit I have 5 different methods to make fire, 5 ways to signal, 2 ways to carry water, 2 ways to make traps etc AND can defend myself with a firearm against two-legged attack if necessary! I additionally have the means to VERY QUICKLY use what is in my kit to catch or kill bigger and better food.

I hope ya’ll like my concept and hope to hear feedback soon!

I really like all those red "x"'s -- where'd you buy those? :lol:

Good luck Craig, it's been fun competing with you and everyone else.

Like I said Jim, you have all the Internet-Posting-Picture-Foo and in this realm, I am an IDIOT!!!!! LOL! :D

PS: Be a bud and explain to me how you can post pics so easily and I can't get squat to post from Photobucket!

ODA, the .25 pistol is a serious issue for me. Make it a .22 LR or .22 WMR and you might have a decent kit. ;)

My .380 or my Springfield .45 ACP Micro Compact is too big to fit. A 9 shot 25 ACP is more than enough to signal with, enough for small game and is enough to pursuade any two-legged predators to leave me alone. I had to stick within the contest parameters.

And please take into consideration that Paragon's kit has NO FIREARM!

Seriously though your entry shared quite a few new "why didn't I think of that" type ideas that I love. My BOB has sardines in it now. :lol: I'll have to test that out here soon when my fishing liscense gets renewed. And oddly enough I've also had that same whistle/thermometer/compass/lens and a microlight hanging off my bag since I was a wee cub scout.

He does have a point here. :lol: Yea could have worked in a .22LR with .25 backup. :wink:

And a Stella you shall receive! I bought that canteen carrier at the ATS store at Ft. Campbell, KY. last month. You might want to check their website.

This has definately been an interesting topic!
When I get my new GHB sorted I will need to do a review.
It will be about 3 times this size but will include a take-down 22, quality tarp and much more!
