Make Your Own Backpacking Survival Kit – DIY Hiking

My personal “make your own” survival kit for backpacking, camping or hiking. I might even just throw it in my car too for when I’m not hiking. Just a simple DIY project I’ve been working on.

    A suggestion is to take out the toothbrush for mor space and brushing your teeth isn't the most impotent

    Good kit and your doing great but you sound unprofessional when you say words like – survivaly and also as some good advice I would stop saying "I've heard from other people" you want to say you found it out or you read this. Just constructive criticism no hate intended

    Electrical tape is also really good for taping stuff down like the striker and sewing needle it would also come in handy for taping stuff together since it's really strong

    I'd lose the toothbrush and use the space for a compression bandage. and store the foil on the inside.

    Although the box is waterproof, your matches will be useless in rainy conditions. Waterproof matches are meant to be used in such wet conditions. That being said, I suggest you to get some waterproof matches rather than regular one.

    This is surprisingly good video. I think your really confident and the camera is really professional. You should make new videos and then you could become a popular u tuber. Keep up the good work mate.

    Ty for sharing 😀
    Since you have lots of surface area, a mirror would help. I would add a fresnel lens ,biggest one you can fit. Allows access to bend light( fire making, burn writing and  lighthouse) and makes effective fire and cooling fan. 
    A pen with tape and fire straws( cotton+wax/pJ+ match and some with just matches) are effective means of saving space but still easy to use.  With the space saved, you could add a large bag in for a cover(water collect and solar still)  Use 2 jam knots to compress it. However the amount of tape/cordage you have isn't quite enough i think. Another 10-15ft of fishing line would help.
     Enjoy the adventures :D

    Put all of your hygiene items in the bottle also your pills then put your cotton balls in a small bag if every thing I said fits it should work nicely

    I can see some good ideas in here but one thing I would consider is a compass and a whistle

    In this sort of 'survival kit' I would consider a toothbrush and ibuprofen a waste of space…. Why tape the foil to the outside, where it will be abraded off??

    take a drinking straw, burn one end of it to close it off, then put some tooth paste in it and seal off the other end. +Greg Dionne
