Jungle survival fire kindling

In addition to fire starter material, it make a lot of sense to carry some early stage fuel such as split bamboo. I carry a pill bottle full of pre-split bamboo sticks. 

I put a silica desiccant pack in the bottle too, so that the sticks stay as dry as possible.

Split dried bamboo to store in a pill box.  You can't have too much dry fuel, especially during the rainy season.

Put as much as you can in the bottle.  You could add some strips of inner tube rubber or cotton balls to stuff the bottle.
