    The candy/bubble gum would help with anyone with low blood sugar issues.

    It's a good start but the fact it doesn't have a closable lid makes a big difference. It's so easy to loose things at night, if you're distressed or have lack of energy through not eating. What if you have water in your resealable bag? Where are you going to put the rest of the kit? Maybe look for an Altoids type tin elsewhere as your first ''to do'' item? Secondly, I'd attach everything like fish hooks, sailing needle to duct tape (to the lid?) to make them harder to loose.

    How much money is the survival kit in a can? Also where can you find it?

    The WHOLE point of this kit is it fits in your pocket so you always have it.  Most of us have a back/day pack when we're out hunting or camping – what if you lose it?  That's why this sits in your pocket. And for the size and price – what the heck!

    Replace tea bag with a condom, no not for sex but for water storage. It will hold about a liter of water!

    I do not want it to get to bulky though, I want it to be a functonal wallet. Current dimensions when closed are 4 1/2 in wide, 4 3/8 in tall and 1 1/4 in depth. If anyone has any ideas feel free to let me know, and thank you.

    What was built into my current wallet was 2 utility knife blades and 2 hobby knife blades wrapped in paper(no plane flights for me) and sealed in the wallet by the ductape around it. I plan on adding hooks, some fishing line and some split shot to my next one. If anyone has any ideas of things I could add to this please tell me. The ductape I use is a reflective silver and a bright orange and I have canabalized this wallet many times for repaires and just for a spare blade at work.
