    Compass Please! Not a bad kit but you can put one together yourself for a lot cheaper. You may already have a few of the items lying around the house… whistle, compass, matches, lighter, magglass, neeedle, thread, safety pins, mirror, etc. You can pack it all in any type of container – metal, plastic, leather, nylon – whatever suites your survival needs. I love the emergency blankets. Have you ever used one? The amount of warmth they can provide is absolutely amazing – they won’t make it through heavy use for several days but they are fairly durable for how light and flimsy they are. These are a must have in any kit and probably the most useful item for its weight!I think the wire included is fine. Remember, snare wire has to be rigid to set up so the dental floss won’t work as a previous reviewer suggested. You can expect to snare a very small animal if it came to that anyway. Also, emergency survival kits such as this must be small, light and easy to carry or you won’t take it with you. It’s for emergency situations and not for hard or frequent use. Yeah, you can navigate without a compass but it would make it easier for the novice – put it in the kit. I can’t believe that such a useful and inexpensive device is absent from this kit. Some adventurers even carry two for that extra piece of mind. Knowing that you are moving in the right direction when lost is everything… it prevents panic and keeps hope alive! I think it’s also important to understand that kits like this are for “common wilderness survival” situations. If your car slides in a ditch on a remote road in North Dakota while it’s -50*F, the mylar blanket won’t help you. If you subject yourself to extreme conditions such as this (I know, I lived there for 3 years) or desert, ocean and high altitude jaunts, you should have proper specialized training and gear.Fishing gear in an emergency kit is okay because it’s easy to carry but Your first priority is protection from hypothermia/exposure either by clothing, shelter or fire. Second is rescue, being found, extraction, etc. I don’t think you’ll do much fishing while trying to keep warm at night, and while extracting yourself or being found the next day, as is what happens in most all emergency survival situations. Fishing gear belongs in an extended stay kit or on a planned fishing trip. I know we all think about crash landing near a remote fishing lake and the fish are biting after weeks of not being found… not likely. I was lost in the woods once and I’ll take a compass over a fish hook any day! I’m not against fish hooks and sinkers but you would have to be lost for many days and have established shelter and water source before you think about wetting a hook. I think lots of new, young wilderness adventurers are being led to believe that a few fish hooks and sinkers will save their life when the truth is, they will rarely or never be used. The items in your kit should be useful and help direct your thoughts in case of panic. Everything in your kit should help you achieve something – if you pull out a whistle and blow it, someone may hear! Pull out a lead sinker and, well… you just pulled out a lead sinker.I also like the signaling and survival instructions. Not only is the information valuable to the novice survivalist but this literature will also help keep you focused and strangely enough, could be comforting while spending the night alone and provide a boost of confidence. A fish hook won’t do that. The material the instructions are printed on could be used to catch water, cover wounds and who knows what else.If for some strange reason catching a fish does become a priority make a fish trap instead – fish swim in and they can’t swim out. If you’re lost for days you’ll have the time to make it and staying busy helps keep the mind on track. By this time you should have a nice camp set up and sportin’ a great woodsman type beard. While the trap does its work you can prepare firewood or signal for help. PLEASE Help Me Spread The Message… Shelter and Rescue First! The life you save may be your own. Good luck!Update: 8 June 2011Price has come down to the low $30’s… a lot better than $40 something! It seems like prices on most Bear items are falling. I guess the hysteria is starting to subside.

    Make your own kit First off, I would like to mention that I am a huge Bear Grylls fan.I have purchased this pack as well as the fire-starter, folding sheath knife and ultimate utility tool.This kit looks very impressive at first, however upon opening the pack you will soon realize that all the items are very small and impractical. The snare wire is barely longer than the average hands length. The mini-utility tool has very stiff components and only consists of a nail file, a knife and two very small and ineffective screw drivers. The whistle inside the pack looks like something out of a dollar store (the whistle on the outside attached to the bag is better). The LED light is purely plastic and inexpensive. It almost looks like a child’s toy.The only two items that would be semi-difficult to find on your own would be the hand saw and mini fishing kit. The rest of the items could be purchased separately for a fraction of the cost of this pack.The fire-starter and folding sheath knife are good (different Bear Grylls endorsed products). Those are keepers. The utility tool’s wire cutters exploded during there first use so you should be weary about purchasing that as well.Take some time and visit some local stores. Even Wal-mart sells the majority of items in this bag. Make your own kit.The only thing that Bear Grylls is attached to in this pack is the nylon bag that all the stuff is in. The rest is just cheap parts.Save your money.Be safe out there.
