Super fun survival kit post

Recommended Posts

cool muddy. i use an under the seat bag, it holds about 4 times what the waterproof container your using holds. i keep car keys, athsma inhaler, money, my wallet (when im riding) my phone, an all purpose bike tool with chain breaker and spoke wrenches. a tire repair kit, first aid kit, a rubber band and some zip ties a bic lighter.  there is still room for me to put a fishing kit, fire kit, ponch and water purifying tablets. it dosnt weight me down and because its attatched to the bike and synched down it dosnt ratt ow wiggle.  and i like your helmet muddy, good stuff  :thumbup:

 

Yep. It's tiny. I have a seal line bag on the handle bars for all the other stuff. I went out last week and forgot my wallet.

Doc Allen's Versa-tool.

 

This is a nifty little multi-tool, which I've had for a while, then lost and finally found. The tool offers an advantage over conventional multitools in that the bits are the standard size. Many multi-tools have smaller bits to fit into the handles. The Versa-tool offers a better range of grip options then a multi-tool. Finally, the Versa-tool has no blades or sharp implements so taking it through the airport shouldn't cause a problem.

I have the Doc Allen's Versa tool with 3 sets of bits, 1 being metric. I also have a couple of sockets to use with it also.

I used to have a Doc Allens in my bike kit strapped under my seat for a couple of years. (picked it up at a garage sale for a buck).  Unfortunately, the zipper had been left open  :blushing: :whistle:  and when I got back home the whole kit was empty.  I re-rode the path but only found a couple of the items that fell out.  :cry:

 

 

One of my favorite multitools is a cheapo.  I didn't feel like grabbing pics so I grabbed this link instead.

 

 

http://www.multitool.org/Miscellaneous-Tools/Medium-Tools/2007/10/10/coleman-pro-lock.html

 

 

The tools are inside inserts in the handles so they operate just like standard multitools do, but when you need to, they "Pop" out of the handle so you can use the pliers on a nut to brace it while using the screwdriver tool on the other end.  You can run them straight out or leave it at a 90 degree angle to get more torque. 

 

 

This is not a strong multitool, it will not handle abuse (Which is why I carry my Charge ALX instead), but the design is really one of the best I've seen.

A first attempt. I just wanted to see how it would look and sound. It was put together in less then two minutes with no script. Lucklily, the camera battery died before anybody got hurt.  :D

I've been banging around with these items from County Comm for awhile.

 

Tactical breacher bars (I added the cord the cord wrap) and a small pocket tool kit. The Tool kit comes with a pouch, key chain light, pry bar, can opener, tweezers and two screwdrivers. The folding saw was separate.

 

The tool kit is handy and there is room for other stuff on the key ring. Not much use for tactical entry in real estate but I have used the breacher bars to pry open some stumps for fat wood. Good stuff.

Kit sized tools. Don't lose them in the couch cushions.

 

Small survival saw made from a hack saw blade. Everybook I've read sez that you can use the back as a striker for your ferro rod. I must be reading the wrong book because it doesn't seem to work very well.

 

Warren Cutlery wood carving blades. Like an X-acto blade but thicker.

 

Homemade knife. My first attempt made from hacksaw blade on a table top sander. There's nothing quite as awesome as a shower of sparks and shrapnel shooting across the kitchen counter.

Kit sized knives.

 

Buck Trio 3 blade knife. Actually the most functional knife in the set.

 

Victorinox Pocket Pal.

 

Gerber STL 2.0. Did you ever have a knife arrive in the mail and find you need a knife to open the box, so you have to go buy another knife only to discover that you need a knife to open the plastic packaging said knife came in? STL is decent thin folder for around $12.00

 

SOG Micron, Spyderco Bug. Keychain sized, no locking mechanism. Beats trying to use your carkeys to open a box.

 

Homemade knife.

 

Blade from a cheap folder

ESEE AH-1 Arrow Head. I'm not sure exactly what to do with it. Yes, I know it's an arrow head. You put it on a pointy stick and shoot it at your arch foe while saying something clever like "Have a knife day!".

 

What I'm trying to figure out is what else it could used for. It does work for some cutting tasks and I did get parks of my ferro rod. It also keeps people from think twice about sitting down on your couch.  8|

Slings for gear. I use these for my big knives because I don't like them hanging off my belt. But that's not to say they can't be used for other gear.

 

Old leather belt.

 

Braided parachute cord not only works as a sling but adds to your available gear.
