Tampon to Start a Fire & Survival Kit ??? / HD Bushcraft Survival Video

I always wonder why people are using tampons as fire starter or tinder in their survival kits. So i went for a hike in the Swiss Mountains to test the tampon as a fire starter or tinder and compare it with my fire tablets which i carry in my survival kit. In this video i share the result and my opinion about this test.
There maybe some First Aid application but for that i carry my First Aid Kit separated.

Please notice that i’m talking about a Survival Kit and not a First Aid Kit. Some may use a Tampon for First Aid application and if you have nothing else to treat a injury it may be very helpful if we keep in mind that’s not sterile! In my opinion its a must to carry a First Aid Kit for any outdoor activity.
And of course it’s also depending on how you create your Survival Kit, is it a combination of both, First Aid and Survival or not. I prefer to have both separate.
