This was in the "tempting" section on the way out of Anaconda and it worked.
Whistle, striker, ferro rod, Steel wool tinder and tungsten tip for breaking car windows

It looks a great find Thrud. I have a pen with a glass breaker; the glass breaker has been useful for other things like punching holes in coconuts and drinking the liquid :).

I only mention this because my partner wasn't aware of it; many packs come with integrated harness clip and whistle - all black wolf packs for example. I pointed this out to my partner on her pack. Having an extra survival tool at no extra weight or space, especially in such a handy location, is nice to know.
