Urban Altoids Survival Tin (v2.0) by TheUrbanPrepper

the second largest video I positioned on my youtube channel was up my city Altoid Survival tune it’s been a long time since announcing that video and this ten has gone through a lot of different revises so I thought it’d be a good time to do an updated video we’ll label this one city Altoid survival 10 explanation 2.0 in the previous video I talked about some of discrepancies between having an city Altoid survival 10 versus a urban outdoor existence 10 so this is more of a 10 that would be useful if you’re on the Amazon or out in the mad and you need some very specific items to survive with you’ll want to have items such as maybe a compass a flame steel for those rare eras you might find a can of chili while you’re in the Amazon you want to have a can opener and maybe some fishing line so all very helpful entries to have in that kind of survival situation but maybe not as useful if you’re in the city like me so you know I’m going to be closer to a Starbucks than I am going to be to a river so I wanted to have some very specific items in my city Altoid Survival tin so for this video let’s go through all the items that I have in version 2.0 of this 10 and I have also made a PDF document which you could download below in the description box which has a list of all the items that are included in this tin where I purchase them out the type of item that they are the quantity the value and the cost so let’s get started going through the urban Altoid survival – in explanation 2.0 before going through all the items in the metropolitan Altoid survival tin let’s do a immediate style in is how much it weighs let’s given it on the scale of assessments here so weighs 7.4 ounces which is 210 grams as you can see this is your standard peppermint Altoids tin it’s not anything like the County Compton which you see here which is actually a thicker tin and it’s quite distinct seeming I demanded something that was you know more discreet it would blended in a gather no one’s going to question you open it up at all towards tin so as “youre seeing” I do have some components in now but it doesn’t open up because of the items so to make it do that I actually attached a little bit of velcro now so I have a very little thin line of velcro with the lid to make it so it stays a little more so I was also pointed out that little peculiarity on here you know it’s not the best thing but it works for me so before actually reform and opening up I wanted to show you on the bottom of it I have a little design now so what I have is this is made by image reflector this is just a little wallet size credit card mirror and so I wanted to have a mirror with me just because I find that it’s quite useful to have in numerous places to have a manner if you wanted to you could I guess you could use this for signaling but for me it’s more for you know hygiene tighten reflects so I found that I always wanted to have a mirror with me and I have some little velcro very thin velcro here on the cornerstone of it so that’s just that’s the first item the portrait reflector credit card size mirror so let’s open up this tin and get started the first thing I see when I open up my existence tin is a picture of baby prepper they always talk about having the will obtain so in a existence statu for me the first thing I want to see is baby prepper there so kind of improves brighten your era so but seeming now on the top I likewise have some disaster amounts so in cases where my cellphone were to die I want to have some emergency digits helpful that I could use so what I have listed in mine this is attached consuming some doubled side videotape by the way I have my auto policy list the number two Highway assistance to triple-a to the Washington poison center the non-emergency number

cards and I select gaffers tape over pipe videotape simply because it’s meant more for temporary you know taping of entries so it doesn’t leave any kind of gooey residue you on whatever you’re attaching it to I find that with Gorilla Tape with canal videotape you know when you articulated that trash on it’s going to be fastened on there it’s more of a permanent fix to something that interruption versus gaffers tape which is still quite strong but you could still remove it quite easily and it does leave any kind of stickiness to whatever you put it on so 14 inches of gaffers videotape next these I have a little determined of tweezers these are made by these are Uncle Bill’s sliver gripper tweezers you’ve seen these a good deal probably on YouTube on a us NER piers vacate
