    Do you carry all of that every time you go out hiking? All together, that looks like a great kit for the truck or snwomachine, but thats quite a bit to take on a day hike, or when finding a camping-expedient bathroom at 2:00am (hey, thats the kind of stuff that gets people lost). Also, do the Kleen Kanteens have the typical anti-microbial lining, or are they safe to throw over a fire to boil water?

    While on the topic of bathrooms, I've found that adding TP, mosquito repellant, toothbrush (which you already have), and other hygeine / common use items makes me more likely to actually carry a kit while on short hikes, longer trips, etc. It seems that many people build the "ultimate" survival kit, but then for one reason or another never actually carry it with them.

    It really doesn't weigh that much. I carry it almost everywhere I go, not just hiking. More f a "man purse" really. It's a good way to conceal carry, which I always do, without having to worry if my pistol is hidden or not. The Kanteen does not have a lining so it is safe to boil water in without the plastic cap.
