Regular price $98.00 $1.00 Sale

You will see individual cart placeholders in your shopping cart for each kit you select, do not remove that kit placeholder or you will not receive it. 

(Each Kit is shipped as standalone supplies ready to be outfitted in an optional tin can container. Add on the Kydex Carry Sheath and Paracord Lanyard for multiple carry/wear choices. Kits are themed to aid in firestarting, first-aid, tactical ops, survival, water purification, sawing, etc.)

We've created themed kits of micro supplies that aid in starting a fire, escaping a hostage scenario, treating an injury, navigating, and more. You can open the tin and grab what you need and keep the rest packed away. We took the well known, "Altoids Survival Tin" idea, and moved it over to a smaller container that you're more likely to Everyday Carry. 
Drop the tin in your pocket, vehicle's glove compartment, or clip it to your belt or Bug Out Bag.
