    I posted a picture of a neck cord I used my fire kit to prop it up I have since upgraded my kit with a new box below is the description of the contents I added a couple of extra fire cubes
    It still fits in a jacket pocket or cargo pocket. It is carried when lighting a fire could save your life

    Mother nature does't grant you quarter if you make a mistake. Even some thing as simple as a space blanket and a couple tea light candles will save your butt and take up very little space. 50 degree and rain will kill you faster than 0 degrees and dry snow

    I cant see any in your pic. I have some short pieces of jute twine soaked in Gulf wax, fray the soaked wax and you have a very good pile of tender, a roll of approx. 250ft and box of wax will make enough tinder for years of use. I have 6 12" pcs. in a pill bottle in my plastic fire case. Do a Youtube search for a video on how to make the tinder.

    Great idea with the pencil sharpener. Have you ever thought about a small baggy of dryer lint. Can't beat the price and catches with ease.

    Roy, the link does't work for me. Is that a story from your locale?

    Also, where does one find the small flares? Marine shop? Internet? I tried but couldn't find what sounded just like that.

    I found the case at a walmart in Cincinnati the flare also came from wally world
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/S-R-Fire-Starter-Signal-2-Pack/20434384
    The ones I picked up were in a plastic bag not on a card
    the cases they have now have black latches
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Plano-Guide-Waterproof-Stowaway/17126449#Item Description
    This kit is not an edc I am fairly competent at fire building with standard edc stuff. and this kit is an extreme weather kit when fire will mean life or death
    First line protection in weather is a heatsheet/space blanket a trash bag a long burning small candle with a reliable lighter. fill trash bag with leave/grass/pine needles etc. set on it cross your legs and wrap up with heatsheet and light the candle between your legs. it will keep you warm for hours.
