Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adventure Medical Kits SOL kit I teach Boy Scouts in outdoor skills; this compact kit has some basic Essentials and it a starter survival kit containing some useful items.The box is tricky to re-pack and hard to close with one hand or with cold fingers. Some careful reorganizing of contents is suggested. Put the kit and other Essentials into a Day Pack and you will have the basics for an unplanned. overnight in the field; add trail food, shelter, clothing and water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value, well thought out. This kit can pretty much solve any outdoor emergency situation. The knife/light/whistle combo & the firestarter are alone worth the [$] price tag. I wouldn't mind if the waterproof compartment was a bit deeper (and that's being nitpicky) but I was easily able to re-pack the contents with a couple of additional items I wanted to have on hand. I love this thing because I can toss it in any one of my packs on a moment's notice and know that I'm covered if things go unexpectedly wrong. Highly recommended for day trips.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice container This is a well built waterproof case with a few neat gadgets built in, But overall as a survival kit you better be in the parking lot of a grocery store. The couple fishhook and safety pins won't do much. Its a great case though and if filled with a tiny assortment of better items it could be a real last ditch survival or E&E Kit. that said though it's a cool little box and beats a Altoid tin as the start of a pocket kit

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Old idea, new execution In terms of weight and cost, there are better values available if you're willing to put it together. For convenience and ease of use, it is a solid deal. I was able to add a few antihistamine and pain reliever caplets in the back compartment which may come in handy. Best use for me is in conjunction with a small first aid kit on short trips, one in each cargo pant pocket. It is not advisable to plan hard use for the included knife. The intent is in the name, survive/stay outdoors longer, not indefinitely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Starter Kit This is a great little starter kit. It does not have everything, but has many very useful tool and it comes in a waterproof case. I always recommend carring a survival kit when in the backcountry, and while this one may not be perfect, it's really good and can be added to with other items. See my video review for more details.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what you think This thing is very hard to repack and the case really doesn't serve a purpose. You cannot fit anything extra. I bought a survival kit at [...] in sardine tin that contained twice as much and was the same size. Not worth nearly $40 dollars maybe $10
