Kit Contest: A Holy Hand Grenade's Worth of Survival


"And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."


THE CONTEST:

Your mission, noble Knights of BnB, is to create a survival kit of your own design that is contained within (and only within) a MOLLE grenade pouch. Once complete, you are to post a picture of the pouch and contents, listing your survival items and explaining why you chose them. At the end of the contest, the forum will vote via poll for the best survival kit.


THE RULES:

1. You must have 100 or more posts to participate, and be at least 18 years of age.

2. The first 10 members to sign up may PM Wilderbeast with their address and receive a free grenade pouch for this contest (US only). Everyone else has to pay shipping (yes, that includes Canadians). If you already have a pouch, great! Use it! Just to clarify, everyone after the first 10 sign ups has to pay the shipping cost to get a grenade pouch.

3. This pouch should be military surplus/issue, in any color pattern of your choosing (in my experience, these typically come in woodland, desert, ACU, Coyote). However, it must be designed exactly like one of these:


4. While there are no restrictions on what goes INTO the grenade pouch (thus giving you limitless creativity), nothing must be attached to the OUTSIDE of the pouch, nor be sticking out the sides, under the flap, woven through the MOLLE, lashed on in some fashion, etc. So, to repeat, the contents of the kit must by contained within the pouch. I don't care if you fill the pouch with tactical gummy worms, just as long as one isn't sticking outside the cover flap.

5. This is a friendly competition, so no one should be unfairly criticizing what other people do with their kits. Everyone defines survival differently. Someone might make a traditional survival kit. Someone might follow some book's definition. Someone might create a kit for urban survival. Someone might make one meant to survive the undead monkey comet of doom. However, in the end, the forum will decide who "wins" the competition.


THE BOOTY:

He or She who wins shall receive the following prizes:


Heavy Duty Carbon Mora Companion MG and a Darrel Aune Colonial Style steel.

AND

$50 in Wilderbucks to be applied to any purchase in Wilderbeast's Military Surplus Forum.  Any purchase using Wilderbucks will include free shipping.

AND

Apparently, Madmax will spend a night out with the winners kit.  :thumbsup:


Please gather your Holy Hand Grenade Pouches and begin construction. You have until Easter Sunday, March 31st, to post your kit pictures and descriptions, after which we will poll a winner. Good luck!

Just an addendum...

I will be participating, but my kit will not be polled.

Say your are "in" and PM Wilderbeast for that free grenade pouch (first 10 won't have to pay shipping if they live in the USA!).

Also, your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.

I'll have to pass, but i wanted to say this looks really fun!!!

I'm loving these contests lately - really creative! Great idea, regardless of prizes - which, by the way, are AWESOME!!!

Have fun all! I'll be watching for everyone's best ideas!

Rog, 

Thanks for taking the initiative to set this up. 

A grenade pouch is big enough to pack a mess of essentials as well as a few comfort items but is still small enough to grab and go.

I eagerly await the entries.

Tony, thanks for putting yourself out there.   
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

Yep, and you can just button it to your belt, so there's a convenience factor.

Ok, I can't resist...

Can I play after all? i want in. I'll pay for whatever shipping etc. there is. I'm just super pumped!

This is such a flippin' AWESOME idea. And for Max to volunteer to use the winners is a really cool idea. Totally.

If I win, and he uses mine, I'm gonna put something really gross in it for him to eat... ;)

Jeff,

You are in, shipping to Canada is going to be $9.00, I just checked that for another participant from the great white north, the pouch is free (for the first 10 entrants) and I thank you for participating.

I have one of these pouches, and have tried to make a kit in it, but theres such a big gap between the flap  and pouch that I worry everything will fall out if it was ever tipped sideways.   Is there a trick I dont know about with these to keep everything contained?

Hey, why don't you just put a sock in it?

I mean inside the pouch, or use a plastic bag, or an otter box or well you get my drift.  I haven't measured one lately but I also suspect you could find a can that would fit in it for a cup/billy with a bale.

If you came up with the same idea I had then you are by definition uber smart.

Besides this isn't nuclear rocket brain surgery.  That will be the next challenge.  >:D

See, I overthought it and just expect a bunch of good kits and one crappy one that gets all the votes.  Either way as long as you have a pot and knife, everything else is gravy.

Which reminds me, I have to check to see if a can of gravy will fill that pouch.  8)

Sure you do, 100 is the magic number. 

Just PM me your address.

As we are approaching 10 I'll let everyone know when the free shipping is filled up.  I'll accommodate as many as I can with free pouches but after 10 I'll need the participant to cover shipping.

I believe that is it for the free shipping.  I still have pouches available for free, but you'll have to pay for shipping and supplies are limited.

Yes I'm in, but I dont need a pouch.   :)   
 
I've been working on this today.  So far I have a shelter, sharps, food gathering, cooking, repair and fire extenders.  Still need to figure out what to use for fire making since I dont have an extra ferro rod to pack in there.  :)    And I'm not sure on how far one needs to go on first aide.

Take your time folks, this is no race. It will allow you to tweak or add things to the kit over time. ;)

Even I'll be participating, but I won't count. Which is too bad, because thus far I have a can of Play-Doh, four baseball cards, a rubber band, one die, Bazooka gum, and a tourist map of Albuquerque.

Great idea for a contest!

Now we just all have to conspire to build absolutely crappy kits to make Madmax's night out epic
  :P

See, I never think things through well.

 :shrug:

I'm really amazed at how many articles of womens lingerie fits in one of these pouches & I even had room for a lipstick and mascara ....

You got it.  I'll combine it with your order.

Sorry,  Gryphon got the last freebie. His PM was prior to your post.

If you want to play you'll to have to pay.
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.
