BEST Micro EDC Kit Ever!

One of the favorite things about my “job” is that people and companies regularly send me gear to test and review and give them my opinion on.  I am always amazed at the ingenuity that goes into putting together micro kits for survival and emergency preparedness.

For a long time I brushed these kits aside because they are typically full of sub-par materials and one-use items.  However, the farther I go along in this world the more I realize that in bad situations, any gear is better than no gear.  Why not put together a kit that you can store in a glove box, pack or your favorite bug-out-bag?

A student in one of our classes and friend of mine, Peter, sent this kit to me to get my thoughts on it.  I was so surprised by how much stuff he got into this one tin, I decided to make a video on it. Watch the video below.  If you are interested in making your own then look below the video here to get a list of all the contents and where you can find them to get started.
