Maxpedition Micro Organizer

Comparison to a Field Notes Memo Book
When looking at small personal survival kits, many folks decide to use a Altoids or similar type tin. I wanted to go over another option by way of the Maxpedition Micro Organizer. This pouch is a smaller clone of the cargo pocket organizer. Using something like this allows you to get away with larger type tools than a tin type kit without sacrificing much additional space. 

Lets go over what I was able to place in the kit. 
The Micro Organizer does just that- ORGANIZE. It keeps all the essentials in place with small pockets and elastic webbing. It has a one way zipper closure and a small mesh pocket on the front of the pouch.

  • Inova Flashlight
  • Base plate compass
  • BIC Lighter
  • Spark Lite tool w/ 5 Tinder Quik tabs
  • Space Blanket
  • Whistle
  • Aluminum Foil sheet
  • Small amount of Duct Tape
  • Snare Wire
  • Pencil
  • Fresnel Lens
  • Gerber Dime Multi-Tool
  • Ontario RAT-2
  • 2 Sheets of Rite in the Rain paper
  • Signal Mirror
  • Water Purification Tabs
  • Kevlar Cordage

Most of these items would not fit in a standard Altoids Tin. Especially the base plate compass and folding knife. This was just to give you guys some various options. I got the pouch, knife, and multi-tool from Southblade and encourage you guys to check them out at
