First off, great video, very very informative and ill be having my girls watch it as well later. One thing i notice alot of people who do kits and edc things , is they dont think about useing their belt buckle for anything or they just neglect to mention it. I have a fairly sizeable belt buckle out of stainless with a cutout of a dragon on it nothing fancy but it does what it was made for: Keeps my pants up lol. But i got to thinking at work one night as to what else i could use it for. It can be used as an ice scrapper if needed , with a ferro rod it should throw a spark(untested atm) could use it as a small digging device although it wouldnt hold dirt witht he cutouts in it itll still dig small holes , a hide scrapper if needed(just use it kinda like an ulu) and in a real situation can take a rock or hammer, flatten it out and sharpen 1 edge for a very light weight chopper.Im sure there are ALOT more uses that could be thought of, just a matter of thinking about it.

Thanks for watching the video and for your kind words! Makes me feel like the work wasn't for nothing lol.



As far as the belt buckle, that's a great idea that I had never thought of before!

For years the leather belt I wore with my pouches had a 2 x 3 inch brass buckle. I sharpened the end of the prong sharp enough to use as a awl or leather punch. And since it was on the end of a 50 inch belt, the sharpened prong left long gashes on the attacking trees.

Thanks for sharing the video. Well done, WOTW. Lots of good ideas and info presented very logically.

Regarding the belt, I like to glue a couple pieces of emery cloth to the inside of the belt for use as a sharpening tool/strop. I use very fine em.c. about 800 or 1200 grit, and it don't wear on the pants much at all, but sure makes a nice edge on a knife. I also usually wrap 40 or 50 feet of braided 75- or 100-lb test fishing line, such as Spyderwire, around my waterproof match safe, and secure it with a few wraps of Gorilla tape. Makes a compact package, and don't get tangled up rolling around inside the pack. I like a small keyring led light clipped inside the pack to use to see inside the pack when it's otherwise too dark.
Think direction first, then velocity.

Watcher, I just got around to looking at your videos. Looks like you're set up good; you've got a lot more stuff than I carry everyday in town on my person. Nice presentation in the videos.
