    The cord if long enough, can be used to cut off small corniness.

    I've got to much invested in the Max thread. I need to diversify.

    Works best if you pour the gas all over your jacket
    and then light it up. Generate a lot of body heat that way.

    I carry 10 meters of 5mm tech cord and a couple carabiners. Strong enough to tow a sled, packs to about the size of your fist and and with the carabiners, you can rig up a rudimentary block and tackle. Also works good for lashing.
    Buy it in bulk from a rock climbing shop for cheap, not a hardware store. It's also available smaller and larger in 1mm diameter increments, but I feel 5mm is the best compromise.

    The best bang for the buck wood saw I have found is the Corona razor saw. The perfect size, super fast cutting and only $24. Only available from Lowes in Canada.



    I also carry the Gerber 9" hatchet. Pretty small, but gets the job done. If you have the room, get the slightly larger model. There are many other cheaper options available, but this one is pretty light and compact. Be sure to cover the handle with grip tape!





    Not so much for survival, but a flashlight that I discovered is perfect for sledding; the UCO Leschi. Runs on one AA, converters between flashlight and lantern and has a little bungee built in. It's only $14 too.
    It's small enough to fit in the convenient hip pocket of my avi pack, can be used as area lighting in the cabin, or as a regular flashlight. The little bungee lets you clip it to your handlebars and shine on the clutch of your sled.
    They also make several other much larger models of convertible lights if that's your thing.



    +1 for the vacuum bagging of emergency gear. They also sell resealable (ziplock style) vacuum bags so that you don't have to cut the bag open when needed. I also bagged my first aid kit and some emergency food.
