I didn't feel like paying $500 -$1000 CAD for a little mess tin with a few bits of survival gear in it. This is not a diss at Esee in any way shape or form......but us Canucks get screwed up here on your products (ie; Junglas $300 - 500) due to our piss poor Canuck Buck "aka" the Loonie. I gathered a bunch of gear locally, @5col hooked me up with an Esee mess Tin and molle Pouch. and I went from there....... Esee molle pouck, Lensatic compass and Esee 6 Esee mess tin, FireCord orange paracord with tinder inside, ACR micro signal mirror, candy tin with Exotac fire starter and tinder, plus GITD, hi vis reflective tape, 5Col Whirlpack bags X 5 food bar, sugar, protein, fat. And a pencil the esee tin hand picked items flagging tape, micro signal panel, LifeBoat matches X 2, plus a few Storm matches. Fox 40 whistle, @Reno Lewis custom ferrorod, aluminum EDC match case LOADED with fishing hooks and misc, plus braided fishing line adn cork float, Lensatic compass, Ef-Chlor water treatment tabs, enough to make 600 liters of clean water. (each tab treats 20 liters water), Esee notebook with nav cards and survival cards, Swiss Army knife Cadet, waxed thread and sail needle, 2 X bobbins braided fishing line, 1 red, 1 white led signal flare, with 6 extra batteries in waterproof balck silicone case, 1 WetFire tinder, 1 beeswax candle, 1 roll duct tape, misc safety pins, buttons, micro sewing scissors, grab pouch large, with trapping and fishing gear, plus shelter and heavy duty space blanket, full spool of bankline, industrial drum liner bag, big enough to crawl into . speedhooks x 6 8 assorted size snares, 6 ready to go fishing auto spool sets, leader line, swivels, and screw hooks to attach snares to trees and logs. Stainless steel snare wire could it be improved? yes. I built this for when i go upcountry in the truck, i throw it into a small backpack which is kept by the drivers seat. Or for when (if ) i ever get into a bush plane or boat. feel free to criticize the build. I sure as hell didn't pay $1000 for it though. Probably got less than $400 CAD, not including the Esee 6.
