I read through the survival kit thread and saw that it was mostly about fire starters. So I thought I'd start a separate one just focused on survival items that fit in your pocket. The idea is that if the plane goes down (as happened to a friend of mine) and all you get out with is what's in your pockets before the aircraft sinks (which happened to the same friend), what items would you want to have in your pockets?
I'd like to limit this to only what you would actually carry in your pockets or on your person whenever you fly out on a hunt or fishing trip.
Here's my list so far:
1. Vaseline-soaked cotton balls in vacuum-packed packet.
3. Solid fuel fire starters
4. Parachute cord (50')
5. Space blanket (for use as tarp or signaling)
6. Snack items
7. Flash light
8. Ammunition (in carrier on belt)
9. Leatherman multi-tool
10. Signal mirror with sight
11. Gallon ziplock bag (for water)
12. Head net (bugs)
13. Glove liners, polypro (bugs)
14. Aerial flares
I know, my pockets would look like "Pockets'" pockets on Hatari, but...
What's your take?
