I have a large Tyvek envelope (like from fed ex, or dhl overnight) in our both my wife's pack and mine. Used as a small ground pad to sit on during a quick lunch stop on the trail, and we've used them to collect blackberries and such. Plus they were free!

HEY!
I eat snails (escargot) and have NEVER had *slug breath*! Besides, if you have a bit of parsley on the side and nibble on that, it freshens your breath nicely!

While I like the ideas of the nails, and might incorporate them into my pack. People should know that unless you really need to for a survival situation you shouldn't hammer nails into trees. Remember "LEAVE NO TRACE".

Thanks for the uncommon item.

i always carry my climbing shoes with me. incase you find yourself in a situation where you need to climb up or down a rock face. or when you just come across a rock thats beggin for you to climb . they are small and light weight. i also have my athletic tape, chalk and chalk bag. i plan on adding a few carabiners, rope and a harness when funds permit.

the tip on the broadheads and hiking stick is a great idea and will have to add that to my bag. thanks

one thing i just thought of. if you wear sunglasses or especially if you rely on glasses to see (like i do). it would be smart to carry a repair kit for em. just threw a kit in my bag.

A small pump bottle of windex glass cleaning fluid. (I wear glasses and one of those dry cleaning cloths are absolutely worthless when it comes to removing blood splatters, oils, grease, or any kind of gritty material. ) It's also handy to clean a knife blade with when necessary.

Oh and I almost forgot: Ear plugs. (A real bonus if you find yourself in the middle of a thunderstorm or other deafening situation unexpectedly.)

I carry a Sawz-all (spelling?) blade in my bag. makeshift saw, or more useful, i find it works awesome for lighting a fire with my swedish firesteel. it creates a larger volume of sparks by far.

also i have a hammock/tent combo from eagle's nest outfitters that works awesome, and i bought the optional nylon straps for it so i dont need rope.

also i carry a derringer in .45 long colt. it can also fire .410 shotgun shells. which in a survival situation is great for hunting small game, and they make flare shells for it. Also they make ones loaded with 10 rounds of 00 Buckshot for other uses. i also keep a mini fishing kit in one of my spent .410 shells.

also i have a little alcohol stove i got off ebay. its made out of a soda can but riveted. i used to have one i made myself but the manufactured one was better, and cost like $8 .

I carry an emergency compact splint which has obvious uses.

also i carry a few tea bags around. for tea, medical reasons, and pressing a damp tea bag to a wound can stop bleeding.

two other important things i carry is a military issue compress dressing for large wounds, and quikclot.

also i carry an emergency filter straw. it can filter up to 20 gallons of water.

another thing that may be useful could be a high energy diet pill like hydroxycut hardcore or similar, gives a HUGE boost of energy when you need it most.

And last but not least, i carry a sealed suture kit, size 3.0 i bought it from nitro-pak.com for a few bucks, good for emergencies.

For those of you who wear glasses (like myself) I would recommend buying a pair of military style BCGs. Might look ugly and dorky, but god do they take a beating. Course I only wear my glasses when I need to read or make out fine detail. I use to worn my normal civilian classes all the time, till they shattered on me during one trip.

One thing i forgot that is odd, is wax pencils, in a cigar tube, they write on everything, can be used as an emergency candle, fire starter, or if you heat it a bit you can use it as an emergency seam sealer. i take three colors as that is what fits in the tube, a black, a red and a green one. colors are your choice, but red is noticable, and black burns the best i have found. i use dixon china marking #77 for the black. but any of them burn pretty well, just beware they smell. also since they can be unravled without a sharpener that helps too, and then the shreds of paper can be used as tinder.

An adrenaline autoinjecter, cortisone pills and some antihistamine. It can save my life and yours...

Ps. Yes, I am allergic, not just paranoid. Ds

Plus they're damn near untearable. I used to pack BOB with stuff in these sealed, that way stuff wouldn't go missing. Free from UPS drop off stands.
