    Default TMT Tactical Wallet - maybe the ultimate "Altoids Tin"

    I read about this in a gun mag: TMT Tactical Wallet. I think it may be the ultimate "Altoids Tin".

    I may have to get me one of these...

    I'd like to see someone get threw the airport with one. "No, really sir." "It is my wallet."

    For $125 I think I will keep my tin. It is a neat idea though.

    They look to have one in Delrin for a bit less - like 80 bucks.

    It is pricey eh? I just like that it has the compass, glass breaker, toothpick and tweezers. I like the money clip inside which could be sharpened, mirror polished, etc. I can easily imagine a ferro rod on the side instead of a pen, a version which has some "upgrades", like a higher quality button compass (NATO SAS compass?), make the whole thing out of a friggin' block of magnesium instead - "How you like me now?" I like that it opens up a new direction in thinking...

    Oh yeah, the potential is there. I am just a cheap dog. I have started carrying a rescue folder so I have a glass break post, belt cutter and 3 1/2" blade. Everything else fits nice and snug in the tin.

    I suppose if I had the money extra and no other gear or equipment needs I might add it to the arsenal.

    Tactical tactical tactical.


    Does look cool for a survival tin type of deal, but I can't imagine using it for a wallet.
    Prior preparation prevents piss-poor performance.

    I got a bunch of those. Mine are called fly boxes, and I use them for fishing. No pens or tweezers in mine. Seriously though, you could rip the foam out of an aluminum fly box for an awesome "altoids tin" for a lot less change.

    At 125.00 , I would feel guilty sitting on it, and I would be constantly reminded of it by the bruise it would leave on my arse.

    Add the word "tactical" and you can charge about $80 more.

    The price is ridiculous. Looks like it's about the same size give or take a little as a pelican 1020 case which is only about a $100 cheaper. But if I had it I would leave out the money clip since it looks like ya could actually get quite a bit of goodies in there without it.
