Each of these little 3.25″ diameter X 1.1″ thick canisters contain emergency supplies. The containers are made of 5000-series aluminum and have knurled screw-on lids; they are waterproof and have waterproof labels. When you pull the label off, the the lid is a serviceable signal mirror. What’s inside these little canisters are the kits that can stand between you and disaster. There are six different survival kits that are small enough, light enough (under 4 ounces), and inexpensive enough that you can stash them wherever you might need one – the car, at home, in your hiking kit, in your purse. Each kit addresses one emergency situation:
