- sisältö kannattaa päivittää paremmilla langoilla/neuloilla, muuten hyvä ostos!

Zipper freed up after awhile, really amazing just how much this kit has! Plenty of spare needles, all wrapped up, scissors, thread, buttons, the perfect pocket kit for repairs while hiking or otherwise in the outdoors! And they're dirt cheap!

to keep collar etc. up first aider...Scissors are rather good., but don't forged to oil them, after the nickel coating is of those goes - rusts in a second.. If you are super human, you can put the the thread throught needles eye in camp fire with cold fingers... I'm not so I addet a threader in this kit.

* Buy 3 of these (or 4, or 5!)
* Identify the one with the most buttons or sharpest scissors or whatever, and designate it as your sewing kit
* Empty the others (keep the sewing stuff at home in a drawer - or beef up your designated sewing kit with extras)
* Turn one into a mini IFAK. No, you won't fit an Israeli bandage in here, but you can make a perfectly good "boo boo kit" for everyday life. A small bandage, some bandaids, alcohol swabs, tweezers, pain killers, etc, fit no worries
* Turn one into a little EDC utility kit. Victorinox pocket knives, BIC lighters, Fisher space pens, small Soviet army combs, USB sticks, ear plugs and plenty of other handy knick knacks fit in these nicely.
* Use your imagination for the others. Fire starting kit, fishing kit, whatever you need.
No, they're not half as well-built or hard-wearing or tacticool-looking as a proper EDC pouch from Maxpedition or Tasmanian Tiger, but they do the job and are ten times cheaper! Use your Italian sewing gear to attach some different coloured bits of fabric to each pouch so you can tell them apart without opening them - or just label them with a Sharpie. If you really wanted to, you could upgrade them a bit by cutting off the tie-up wraps and sewing on some elastic loops or velcro or whatever. Don't forget to wax them up for waterproofing! You can easily stuff half a dozen of these in the pocket of a windproof smock or the smaller side of a Finnish gas mask bag.
These are just super handy, and for 2 Euro you couldn't even buy the zipper, fabric and binding to make one of these yourself. Stock up while you can!

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
