Survival kit in the cubby hole

For some time I've been thinking on putting together a survival kit in the cubby hole of the jeep. I thought its size is perfect and it never gets on the way for the other things that I might need more often.

In addition, in other parts of the jeep I keep a comprehensive medical bag, 5 galloons of water, recovery stuff, 2 galloons of gas, compass, flares, binoculars and other stuff.

The survival kit contains:

6 mre meals (with heaters)
1 life straw
Cothing for 3 days
Slim rescue howler
Ear plugs
Magnesium fire starter tool
Waterproof matches
Tinder
2 cups
6 instant coffees
Toilet paper
Tide hand wash travel sink packets
3 packets of tissue paper
Chainmate 24 Inch Survival Pocket Chain Saw
Sewing kit
50 feet parachute cord
Bathing wipes
Super concentrated wash (good for body, hair and dishes)
Contact lenses solution
Contact lenses case
1 pair glasses
3 packets of colgate brushes with beads (12 toothbrushes total)
Tooth floss
Cotton swabs
Speed stick deodorant

Any ideas/suggestions will be welcome!

Roger -

That is a great use of that small storage space, and while I'm not an expert on what you should keep in survival kit, it looks like you've done a good job of gathering the necessary items to fill that area for maximum usefulness ;)

I wish more manufacturers made good use of voids or recesses in the body.

Your kit looks like a well thought-out item. At some point this year, we will be doing a net that covers this topic and we can always use additional input - like yours! If you are interested, we will keep in touch so we can plan to incorporate your ideas.

A net on this topic should be a lot of fun, looking forward to it!
