Everything you need in an emergency in one tiny little pack.

Sure, you could save some money by building your own safety kit from scratch. But miniaturization makes this pack so small and light that you’ll never hesitate to throw it in a daypack. You get a reliable thumb-wheel firestarter, tinder, signal mirror, a 120-decibel Fox 40 whistle, fishing essentials, and more (see website for complete list).

And unlike many competitors, this kit includes a legit knife, a CRKT flat-blade that fits nicely in the hand. It all stows in a 5.5×4.5×1.5-inch waterproof pouch. But toss in a compass; the included mini is too small. $70; 5.7 oz.; adventuremedicalkits.com
