(Assortment of Micro Kits outfitted in small slider Tins that fit inside a reimagined "Altoids" Tin. Kits are themed to aid in firestarting, first-aid, tactical ops, survival, water purification, sawing, etc.)

It's a pocket-ready "Metal Can" with your selection of Survival & EDC supplies stored inside. We took the well known, "Altoids Survival Tin" idea and rebuilt the Tin with thicker 2.3mm walls while maintaining the same shape and feel of the original. Then we outfitted small Slider-Top Tins with Micro-Kits. Six of the kit-filled slider-tins, pack away nicely in one of the improved Larger Altoids Tins. Drop it in your pocket, vehicle's glove compartment, or Bug Out Bag.

It's all about compartmentalizing and compacting. We maintain an arsenal of small items meant to do big things. In fact, all of our products are based on this idea. We're able to source micro tools and supplies and fit them in small spaces. Organizing it is key. We theme each kit then pack it in a small slider tin. Then we give you the option to put 6 of those small tins into a standard yet improved Altoids tin thus making a modular EDC storage device. Consider adding a leather tin liner.
