The Flight Outfitters Pilot Survival Knife (I got mine at Sporty's for around 30 USD) has a window breaking point at one end, a built-in seat belt cutter, a 4 inch blade, a fire starting striking tool, and a small flashlight (that tends to fall out and roll under the seat). Many of the things covered in the lists above are in this single item that fits in a jacket pocket or pants pocket.
I never fly without mine in one pocket and a PLB in another.
