    Ear plugs and a spare AA battery for the flashlight will go in mine just fine. I try to keep things that are rarely needed in them since I get some weird looks digging out a chapstick.

    This is why I don't use chapstick...I use Paw Paw cream instead.

    lol - me too. What I meant was I get weird looks from other people when they see me packing an Altoids Tin for other stuff and Chapstick is something I am constantly using so I just throw it in my pocket loose.

    Extra bits for the Leatherman. Screws and other small items. Pills. Tinder.

    I wish you wouldn't have told me that. I may have to run out and get one of these tins later. I always carry a spare AAA batter, mini bic and a vic classic in my 5th pocket. Do you think those 3 things would fit in the mini tin?

    Depending on how big your keys are, a spare key holder. I use a camel snus tin, which is just a little bit larger than an altoid mini tin to hold a spare truck key, among other small items I don't want in the bottom of my pockets. I also carry mine in my fifth pocket. You could also put a couple of doses of pain reliever, or allergy medication if that's something you use with any regularity.

    Homemade tinder. Could only get two pieces in there though. Along with a Starbucks wooden stir-stick broken into 4 pieces. So, basically emergency tinder. Wrapped plenty of duct tape around it. Keep it in my main BOB.

    I'd like to see more pics of what you guys are doing with the mini tin. The fact that it fits in the 5th pocket intrigues me.

    Well the only one of those I have to try is the vic classic and it is just BARELY to big for the tin.

    Now I'm gonna have to try Camel Snus to get the tin.....

    AAA battery will go in it no problem!!!!
    NOT at the same time but I have been experimenting with what all will fit. So far I have found that fingernail clippers, AAA battery, and Pataday eye drops fit fine.
