Urban Altoids EDC Tin (v2.1)

“A mini survival kit is a small survival kit which consists of the most essential outdoor survival tools and supplies which are the hardest to improvise or replace. A mini survival kit is intended to be carried along all the time and is usually designed to complement other survival tools carried along in a larger, separate bag. Other personal gear will primarily offer additional serviceability and ease of use, but the mini survival kit should provide for the basic needs of a survival situation, followed by self rescue, assistance, or a return to normalcy in optimum situations. “ [Wikipedia]

My Urban Altoids “EDC” Tin (Version 2.1) is not designed as a standard “survival tin” (as defined above). While the items listed in the above description would be extremely beneficial in an outdoors emergency, the majority of items have little use for EDC (Every Day Carry) purposes in an urban environment. Instead of carrying a bunch of items that I would most likely never use on a daily basis, I redesigned my kit into more of a “convenience” that have a higher probability of actually being used in an urban environment. This would be an extremely poor kit to carry in the Amazon jungle, but highly beneficial to have at work, home, out of town travel and during errands in an urban environment.
