    and Survival Metrics review

    A lot of guys like to carry bushcraft belt kits, I'm one of them.
    There's nothing like a leather pouch kit.

    Quick release drop pouch configuration fits under a backpack hipbelt.

    My leather kits suffered from rain, snow and extreme weather conditions.
    I went to use my IFAK and found everything ruined and useless from some forgotten rainy trip,
    the Band-aids lost their stick, the tape as well, various med's were contaminated from getting wet.
    Lesson learned -- check and update your kits frequently,
    don't wait for an emergency to look inside your IFAK.

    Having tried zip-locs and Aloksaks, and other plastic resealable style bags,
    I put out the search for something more rugged, likle a micro-size dry bag.
    Something that would be a liner for my leather pouches.

    I found these nylon pouches at Survival Metrics.com
    they weigh next to nothing, material is "nearly" waterproof, zippers as well.
    I filled them with water to see if they leak, the only leak is where the two zipper sliders meet.
    Good enough for my purposes, I'm not risking submersion on a canoe trip.
    Now my belt kits stay dry although I do check them after rainy outings.


    Three sizes fit just right in my pouches.
    Quality is excellent, these have held up for me with zero issues.
    Prices are reasonable.
    I ordered online and they arrived in 48 hours.
    Nice, friendly people to deal with.

    My IFAK fits inside a vintage Hunter ammo pouch with Survival Metrics liner.

    I've been wanting something along these lines for a shoulder bag. Thanks for the link, Robert.

    Cool post,

    But I can't find these little liner bags anywhere on the site.

    Gorgeous belt pouch collection!

    I know this one's old, but if you do a store search for "pouch" they're way down at the bottom of the results page. 3 different sizes, 6x9, 6x6, 4.5x6.
