    Okay, so ive mulled on this one for awhile. And really looked at it realistically.

    90% of my commute is within 20 miles of home. So, worst case scenario, I have to abandon my vehicle, and hike home. I carry a lot of gear in the vehicle. Some of which i would attempt to pack with me. But, for the sake of the topic ive condensed it to what i feel, i could survive with, on a 20 mile hike, in an urban/rural environment.

    I also put this together from

    what i already had available. I did not have to shop for anything in the kit. Granted, some of it was in various places, i just had to combine it.

    -Phone case, this was a Christmas gift, since im not an avid canoe/kayaker, it was sitting unused

    -Cash, we all know green talks, wether it saves you from a beating by some scumbag thugs, or buys you a ride, or some water or food, most people wont turn it down.

    -Mylar blanket, bright and shiny to signal with, wrap up to keep out the wind, reflect heat from a fire, keep the rain off of you, carry water, or wrap something.

    -Lighter, obviously the quickest, easiest way to make fire.

    -Duct tape, minor repairs, bandages, keeping someone quiet, restraining an assailant, fire extender,

    -Super glue, highly flammable, easier than stitches. Will stop some bloodflow. Keeps out infection

    -Ferro rod, fire making redundancy, should the lighter fail for whatever reason.

    -Tinder quick, a compliment to the Ferro rod, as a fire extender, to ease fire starting in inclament/emergency conditions.

    -Folding knife, although i usually have at least one good fixed blade always nearby, there again redundancy, as this is a last ditch kit.

    - Cordage, in this case #36 tarred bank line. Approx 25 feet, or 4 of my wingspans. Shelters, lashing, snares, garrote line, gear repair, restraints, etc.

    One option, instead of the glue.. pieces from a bicycle inner tube



    Speaking of rubber tubes..
