    Stupid hack. Rather use original tube to be easy for anyone to identify.

    Don’t let the cops see it they will arrest you for possession with intent .

    Wouldn’t these be a bit of a chore getting open when you need them? Those straws are made of some pretty tough stuff, and without access to some type of sharp pointy object….just sayin…

    Looks like busy work to me. They already come in convenient small tubes with resealable tops. Don’t really see the point in doing this.

    Not to mention taking up extra space.
    I get the feeling that these type things are dreamed up by drug store cowboys, that don’t have much time in the saddle.

    no one should ever be w/o at least 3 blades on their person and bigger ones and hatchets close by

    If you are going to take the time to make these fill them with a flammable and use as a quick fuel for fire

    The straw trick has so many more uses than just neosporin. You can make ones with salt or other seasonings for a small kit or backpacking, put Vaseline and cotton balls in one for tinder. I put tinderquicks in the smoothie straws you buy at Walmart, I carry a few Imodium in a straw in my survival kit. I make mini packets of CLP and Grease for my cleaning kit on my chest rig. When I had a mosin nagant I had ones filled with windex to swab down the barrel due to corrosive ammo.

    You can spot the people that haven’t had to ruck long distances, carry heavy packs or lived out of their pack for a long time. Any quarter ounce of weight I can save I will.

    You will see these on the AT for a reason. They are light and they work.

    I agree Dennis — I always have a multi-tool plus another fairly large folding knife at minimum. But I’m always thinking about “what if?”

  11. Chris Parides said:

    Right. Use the tube it came in. This looks like a mess waiting to happen in a heavy pack

    Steal them from your works First Aid kit/cabinet. Or barrow them, definitely meant barrow

    Small scissors that will fit in your bag. OR, a sharp pocket knife…

    you can buy small packs now .. besides if your allergic to neosporin ..use bactricial

    They’re handy for small things when space and weight are a premium. I keep a couple with vaseline soaked cotton balls in my hill people gear bag. It’s a small bag ghat has a fire kit, my glock, a lifestraw.
    Likewise single serve doses of aspirin, etc are nice to have instead of a 2000 pill bottle from Sam’s Club.

    Much easier to fill straw half way then pinch areas off and seal. You could do this with home made salve also no air may keep longer i may expermint.
