  1. Thanks for your fine video. I have a few suggestions for your consideration.

    The small can will make your job of boiling water quite time consuming. A large coffee can would make life a lot easier. As for battoning, your small knife can be used to carve some wooden wedges, which will allow you to split some pretty healthy sized pieces of wood. The fascination some have with battoning has caused them to buy some pretty clunky knives that are not optimal for much else beyond battoning. A small pruning saw would be another great addition. 

  2. Awesome vid. Very minor thing, but I think gutting out the round cardboard core of the duct tape saves little space. I did that with scotch tape and used the inner circular portion to place a roll of measuring tape (microtool type edc, obviously)
    informative, thanks for posting!

  3. I like your simple to the point video. It doesn't hide the important points in the usual BS we get from some others thanks

  4. You mentioned Dave Canterbury at the beginning of your video.  I really like him because he gets to the point.  When listening to him you can be constantly learning. That's part of what makes a good teacher.  Not a bunch of meandering nonsense…you also get to the point.  I really enjoyed your candor with the tin can idea for a container.  Your ability to go forth and put together a nice kit on a reasonable budget was also refreshing.  I think there are sometimes too many want to be poser types that are just into out spending everyone and trying to get the flashiest toys… Thanks for posting.

  5. Yes, the ''swapping out'' thing is great, I've never got on with the gear fetish thing where you have to have the same expensive things as everyone else and this somehow makes you a better bush crafter/survivalist. It can be fun (or a bit of a challenge) to see if cheaper gear does the job, some of it works for you, some doesn't. It's maybe better to learn with the basics as things go missing or break all the time then you're back to square one.

  6. Good Common Man kit.  Tip – I use straws from Arby's to store my needles with a bit of alcohol in them.  They are clear, and thick.  I heat seal the ends with a lighter.  Sterile needles in a portable small package!

  7. Assortment of Heavy needles at Wally World $2.97 cant beat that. Always finding metal bottles cheap at thrift stores. Screw on lids with cheap carabineer.

  8. I will never understand the minimalist view of survival. These items may help, but you will not survive for long. Maybe these are the core items to a larger kit but why not get decent core items and go minimal on the supporting items? No first aid kit, a compass is useless without a map, etc. Sorry but I will gear up and if I have to, dump items I dont need rather than gear down and wish I had more items. Its too late then.

  9. I would put the can in a fire and burn the inside. Some cans have a lining in them, and I have seen cans that say "do not cook food in the can" because of this. Burn the lining out. Inexpensive and compact, I like that. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Where's the whistle? I dare to say that the 5 C's are incorrect and the second 5 are just stretching words to make them start with a C. I made a video about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ab6qic4EfA&t=58s

  11. When they mention a solar still you know to move along. There is little to no chance that a solar still will produce as much water as you sweat out making it. The odds of sustainable water from one is on par with being gored to death by a unicorn. Not trying to be a jerk but please folks try these things before you have to rely on them. Solar still, transpiration bags, and getting water from a cactus is old military survival book garbage that just doesn't work and could poision you as well.

  12. If u can’t “at least” afford a SOLKOA SUMA container, fuse those paracord ends or afford a DOAN Magnesium bar… then I’m done. 👎👎🙁
