My all-around survival kit currently resides in a 5.11 Small Kit Tool Bag. If it looks like a tough, little black bag, it is indeed tough (1050 D nylon) but it is only little on the outside. The main compartment is 6” H x 10” L x 5.25” D. On each side are 5” x 8” x 2” side pockets. All that adds up to 475 cubic inches of storage space. Enough to hold a Taurus 650 .357 Magnum, first aid kit, emergency blankets, a handful of small tools, extra ammo and gun cleaning supplies, personal hygiene gear, a light stick, hand-warming pads, a length of nylon rope, an emergency poncho, fishing kit, and so on. A roll of duct tape gets tossed in the bag, too, or least attached in some way to the shoulder strap. A knife, flashlight, and fire starter are already on my person. What am I missing?

One side pocket features a fold-out zippered mesh organizer panel. Otherwise all the pockets are simply large storage spaces with YKK zippers all around. Handles are heavy duty and the bag comes with a padded shoulder strap that attaches to rugged D rings. Handy!
