Stuff sack with whistle: This is actually quite nice. Decent nylon construction and signal instructions on the back. A small (loud) whistle is on the zipper pull.
Inner "watertight" pouch. Nice concept, poor quality. The plastic on this is brittle and mine actually came with a large crack in the bottom. Thankfully I have some proper waterproof pouches that are much softer and more durable.
Mini multi-tool: Gerber Clutch. This sells for about $15, but it's really difficult to open and use. I like the spring loaded pliers, but the rest needs to be worked-in with oil. The tools on it are very, very tiny. I would suggest the Leatherman Style CS. Much better. [...]
Gerber Fire Starter: Appears to be sound. Once the black coating is off, it performs like the rest.
Paracord: 5 ft. Not enough. If you can afford the weight in your pack, bring 25-50 ft. This will cost about 3 oz, but worth it.
Whistle: Fine, but emergency only. The end does not stay on because you can reverse it for a different sound. Could be very easy to lose making the whistle worthless.
Mini light: Terrible. It worked for less than one second when I switched it on and does not work anymore. I can't think of anything more important to have in your kit other than a knife and compass. Speaking of which, there isn't a compass.
Snare wire: About 16" of really thin copper. You would be hard pressed to catch anything more than rodents with this thickness. It seems to be about the thickness of stripped phone wire.
Emergency blanket: Same as any. Good to have, but doesn't last long.
Twine: Looks to be about a meter of twine 2-3x thicker than floss. This can be useful for very small jobs, but it's so thin.
Emergency tinder: One. 2-3 would be better in case your fire goes out.
Waterproof matches: 8 in total with striking board. Completely sealed which is good.
Emergency saw: I have not heard very good things about these in general, but it looks to be a little thicker than most.
Sewing kit: 5 colors about 12" each of thread. Two buttons, one needle and a safety pin.
Signaling mirror: Has instructions on the back. Useful.
Fishing kit: Far better than nothing. A few meters of thin line, 4 swivels, 4 hooks & 4 sinkers.
Priorities of Survival Pocket Guide: This could be useful for someone who does not know how to build shelter, find food, water or self-rescue.
In all, this little kit has a bit of everything, but it would only last a few days if you don't know how to survive otherwise. If you built your own kit separately, it would cost a little more, but you would also be able to include much higher quality items. However, in an emergency, this would be far better than nothing. However, I had expected higher quality from Gerber and Bear.
