      small film container with cotton and petrolium jelly rubbed on it. One easy way to get a fire started.

            All of the above, make sure the matches are water-proof. And the steve182 had a great idea with the energy bar. It will give you quick energy when needed.

                      for a good survival kit,you not onlyl want to concider what all should go into it but how much space you want it to take up and how much you want it to weigh. if you want just a basic survival kit. i would suggest, a couple of strike anywhere matches,and a small piece of flint incase you are needing to survie longer than your matches do. a couple of zip lock bags to keep your things dry, and to carry water in if need be. i would also suggest a good knife with serrated edge for cutting. i would also take a small tube of anti-septic and a couple of tylonol. most of that stuff would at least help keep you warm, help you build a shelter and keep you from dying of an infection. if you have more room for a bigger survival kit. you could buy a couple of MRE's (Meals ready to Eat) each one has about 2000 calories in them so 3 of them wouold be enough to keep you going to 3 days. and if you have room maybe a good first aid kit with some clotting agent. that could save your life if you were cut very badly and it wouldtn stop bleeding. a couple of other things that i would suggest carrying would be a compass and a map of the area you are going to be in. that way even if you do get turned around you will be able to use these tools and the terrain around you to make it home alive and in time for dinner
