    If I'm traveling abroad, what types of things should I keep in a pocket-sized survival kit?

    I would say the same things you would keep in any survival kit, bandages, aspirin, good knife, fire starter, I could go on and on ,but you get the idea.

      Mostly it will depend on where you are going and when; Australia in December is summer time... Canada or Russia in December anything but summer.
      There may be certain basics needs but there is no one size fits all when it comes to survival kits. The same kit that would work in Southeast Asia will not do you much good in Somalia. They need to be tailored to the possible needs that may be encountered.
      Also realize that some countries may not allow you to take everything in your kit into their country; many customs agents in some foreign countries love to find new knives to add to their personal collection... at the expense of others.

        Bo and Mesarich are right. Take whatever you are allowed to travel with, that suits the survival needs of the climate and terrain you are traveling through. I know that's vague, but here's some of my top picks. Bic lighters, a metal cup to boil water and cook, a water bottle, rope or cord, duct tape, pocket knife, first aid stuff, whistle, Space bag or at least a big trash bag for shelter, local currency, and whatever else you can get away with bringing.

          Any handgun hunters here?
          Describe your hunting handguns (With Pics!) whether they be revolvers, semi-autos or single-shot specialty pistols.
