A must have item for your bug out bag... this little everyday carry gear with O-ring keeps both the matches and the red phosphorus (strike-on-the-box) striker dry. It also holds a few other items important to have for everyday use or even survival, such as a sewing kit, a nail file and q-tips. Though these items are small, they are mighty and can have many uses for survival.
Here are some uses of these items: Q-tips - You can clean a corroded battery, make a fire starting kit, apply antibiotic ointment, pack bandage material into a wound, get debris out of our eyes, and even clean your guns. Sewing Kit - You can repair clothing. fix a ripped tent or tarp, mend backpacks, sleeping bags, and gear, and in an extreme emergency, be able to stitch up a wound. Nail File - You can sharpen earrings into fishhooks, sharpen your knife, or even needles and create saw dust by filing twigs to make a fire.
