So glad I finally bought this. I’ve been looking for a “possibles bag” for quite some time but most of the offerings are decidedly smaller, many only fitting an altoids tin in. This is the only leather bag of its size, the nearest equivalent is about 5 cm smaller in width. This allows me to keep a tinder tin, a fire steel, a ferro rod, two vials of magnesium shavings, a capped 2cm diameter copper tube container with spunks in, a little bag with waxed fire starting pellets in and a waxed canvas covered sheet of leather, about 6” by 12” for keeping tinder dry whilst lighting it on the wet ground. Oh, nearly forgot, a little length of fatwood the size of my forefinger and 3 pieces of flint. It’s a bit like the tardis!😁 It might be expensive, but you do pay for quality and this is an heirloom quality pouch, it’s beautifully made. I like the buckle system because it’s very secure and quiet in use, if you need it to be. It sits well on a belt without being floppy, I’ve found it will just go on my 2” (50mm) wide belt, even though it says it will only fit up to a 44mm belt. I haven’t actually used it yet, but when I do, I think I’ll have the belt on the outside of my clothing so I can swivel it round when I want to get into it and have it more out of the way when ai don’t. Altogether, I would definitely say for anyone on the fence about purchasing it to go ahead, you really won’t regret it!
