Top one is an individual kit, the bottom one a group kit, Les explains his reasoning behind the contents of both in this video
Yep Experience and knowledge are in your head and useful everyday, but if you need a Pot and you haven't got 1 I'd rather have 1 in my Bergan / kit.
Oh yeah the Suma tin can take more than you will need it for.
I just looked it up in the internet.
Although the items seem to have a higher quality as in usual toy kits, that isn't what I would choose to gift it to my nephew or niece should they risk to get into a survival situation in the woods where they would depend on it.
There is similar equipment on the market, that is constructed better, the only item that seems to be convincing in the first view is the Fox 40 micro whistle, but as I found a green one on a photo of this kit, although it is also offered in orange, I doubt that the whole kit is packed seriously.
In my opinion a well working real survival kit can't be sold for this low price.
Would I expect to get into such kind of troubles, I would pack for example the following:
Bottle carrier pouch with large side pockets or similar shoulder bag.
Bottle, Nalgene stainless steel, cylindrical
Mug, Lixada 750 ml with bail and butterfly handles, stainless steel, nesting under the bottle.
Wire snare with additional open hook in the end to hang both over a fire
Cotton handkerchief as water pre filter and pot holder cloth.
Micropour Forte water purification tabs
Knife, Terävä Jääkäripuukko 85 with plastic sheath and belt clip, seems to fit into the bottle. Blade rust protected by coconut oil film.
Ferrocerium rod, light my fire Army, orange
Lighter, Bic, orange,
Duct tape, orange, wrapped around it.
Mini candle as fire starter
Hiking map of the area in a zip lock freezer bag.
Compass Silva Ranger SL
or Suunto M-9 wristband compass
Head lamp, Petzl e+lite
Spare batteries in small plastic bag
Whistle, Fox 40 Micro, orange
Cordage, Edelrid Multicord 2,5 mm, 3 m long, orange (to tension poncho as plow point shelter or make a tripod)
Basic fishing kit
Caperlan pouch or zipp lock freezer bag to keep the small stuff together when the bottle gets in use.
Poncho, Defcon 5 (as bivvy bag or shelter too)
Bivvy bag, Snugpak Special Forces or red Alpkit Hunka
Platypus 1 litre folding bottle for additional water carrying capacity.
Muesli and chocolate bars
I guess most of it will fit into the Nagelne stainless steel bottle, but I didn't try it out yet.
Poncho, bivvy bag and signal mirror should fit into the side pockets of the bottle carrier with shoulder strap.
Because this is meant as a real survival kit, it costs a bit money. But otherwise it can be used for planed overnighters and hiking tours too, because it is long lasting and comfortable to use. One just needs to add a sleeping bag like the Snugpak Special Forces 1 and the multimat adventure 4 XL foldable sleeping mat to have a pretty comfortable and really compact 3 seasons equipment, what I also would carry in a day pack with the kit above should I really expect to need it in a wilderness survival situation.
One needs to train with such a kit anyway if one expects to need it in potential troubles. Even if one cooks noodles instead of insects, wurms and berries, such a kit must be used to develop the needed skills. And as we know, it is a very nice hobby.
