    • small chunk ski wax 
    • small chunk Glopstopper skin wax 
    • Rubber skin tail rear

    • steel wool 
Total wieght is around 2lbs but could bail myself out of a lot of situations (broken bindings, ski, pole, ripped jacket, inflatable mattress, tent, Broken boot, sticky skins or skis, a lighter for fire, etc) Many items have multiple uses. I dont carry this kit on casual outings less than a few hours, but on larger trips, guided trips, international travel this little bag is carried everyday.
