    How do you store the duct tape, on waxed paper or something? This is a great idea, thanks!

    Roll the duct tape on to its self then continue to wined, and wined, and wined. Then fold a corner to help with unrolling as needed.

    I wrap mine around pieces of old plastic cards.

    One big question for anybody who has put a compass in an altoids tin, how much did it mess with the compass?

    One thing I highly recommend, that beats plasters anytime from my experience, is to get medical tape and use it with alcohol wipes. You can create your own plasters and store the medical tape just like duct tape. These plasters seems to hold better, can be made to fit the cut and the tape I have is very breathable so the alcohol from the patch slowly evaporates and the wound can even breath while it is protected.

    Since I used this setup I do not want to go back to regular plasters again.

    I have a survival tool that has a compass on the case and a knife/tool credit card size. The compass will not work unless the knife is pulled out.. but it seems to be ok once away from steel. I had a hard time finding a small compass on its own.. of any quality.

    I carry a couple of hard candies in my tin. I find I am often eating them in non emergency situations.. just to boost my energy. Makes the kit “useful” everyday. I also carry tylenol, and voltarin for the same reason. And an anti acid.

    I think a small button LED light is a good item. If you are caught out at night.. you are in big trouble without light. And it is also a signal. http://www.trademe.co.nz/sports/camping-outdoors/tools-knives-compasses/multi-tools/auction-709740135.htm
