They were all quite bulky. One expert used a 1 gallon paint cans to carry everything in. Not very practical I thought, so I went about making my own. This is a pocket version starting with a pint paint thinner can. This thing had everything, including pictures of plants and snares. I used it one night but I brought my sleeping bag seeing it was winter time. It worked well. This was also probably the beginning of my facination with space efficiency . Edit
