Rainwalker, the case is a Plano fly box, it is a hard plastic that I'm pretty sure would break if dropped from 20 feet. I decided to sacrifice some strength for the size, anything more sturdy and it's just too big to carry comfortably. I really wish otterbox or pelican made a case this size. It isn't waterproof either, if I feel I need to waterproof it I just wrap it in duct tape or seal it in a foodsaver bag

You might also check the "PSK" thread on this forum. My friend and I just posted out kits, and many others have posted their kits as well. I used a 1040 model pelican micro case for the container, but the smaller (1020 i think) model is ideal if you want to carry it in a pants pocket or on the belt. Check it out

everything comes down to how much it will help you vs its size and weight. you also probably want to minimize redundancy, so it depends what else you are already carrying.

Seriously, take a look at this thread. It's more than 5 pages (depending on post per page) worth of PSKs and talk. Comment in it too.

Where you live/camp will dictate your priorities. Generally speaking my priorities are water and warmth. If I'm hydrated and warm I'll be OK. Everything else is a "nice to have".

it will be for the woods for camping and hiking and thats cool that you live around hear
One thing that I've added to my kit is a small hard plastic gardening trowel.
Mine weighs only a couple of ounces and is bright orange so it can be found easily if dropped.
With many uses around camp, this trowel was a steal at only $2.00 <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbup.gif" alt="" />

Those don't work so well in hard/rocky ground though. I really like my (Made in USA) U-Dig-It shovel. I've seen they now sell a cheap knockoff at Walmart with the camping gear if you want a cheaper version.

Thats true Andy, they don't perform well on that type of ground.
I've been thinking of going to the Sears garden dept in spring and just
picking up one of their stainless steel garden trowels. It would add a bit
of weight to the kit, but not that much I think.

I did that, thinking if it broke I'd have the Craftsman warranty. Turned out the shovel was made in Mexico or China (don't remember) and it was aluminum. That was several years ago. I don't know if they're better now or not.
