You never know when you'll need a survival kit, or at least the ability to light a fire or signal for help. Whether you're out camping or you just want to be prepared for any possible emergency, this pocket survival kit from Instructables user diyoutdoorsman can help you get out of a bad situation, whether your car has broken down in the middle of nowhere or you're just roughing it miles away from civilisation.Among the tools in the pocket survival kit are a signalling mirror and a mini torch, operated by a AAA battery. There's also a rescue whistle, a button compass, post it notes and a small lead pencil, damp-proof matches, tinder, fire steel, a blade and more. The whole kit is small enough to fit in a small waterproof plastic bag, weighs about 280g, and is designed to be carried on your person whether you're in the wilderness or just trying to find the closest petrol station after breaking down.
