What exactly are you aiming to survive with this gear?

Sorry if i offend anyone BUT a small folder will not dig you out of a crumpled building BUT i also accept a flashlight and a whistle would help!!!

So surely the answer is in our hands

a small flahlight-a small maglite/proton
a swiss card/tool logic card/micra for small tasks around the office
a whistle-fox 40 or storm

Isn't it that simple!

All them items mentioned could easily be distributed without anyone noticing-put them in different pockets!

One thing that works well to hold small things and not get much notice is an eye glass case.I have a hard padded one from the dollar store,rounded corners made to carry with comfort in mind.

Holds more and longer things than an Altiods tin,easy pocket carry and blends in just fine.

A small folder can help a lot in a highrise,I use mine quite a bit to slide back the latches on doors.I'm sure all the stairway doors lock from the stairways on every floor except the ground floor where you work as this is sop in most buildings,but sometimes you may have to exit at another floor.Also there is often passageways with locked doors used by maintainance etc. they may be a better way out or around something.There are also underground parking lots that are for the "bigwigs" to use that have locked doors that may also provide a better way out.you may be surprized how easy it is to slide the latch back on these doors with a folder and get out.

I partially agree. Most items do not need to be directly on you. Most just need to be handy. Many are not needed at all.

Fish hooks and storm matches may be of little value below 72nd St. But a couple of bandaids and Tylenol in a small FAK, spare Metrocard, and emergency cash may be of great importance. A safety pin might be nice if you pop a button. As well as the whistle, small knife and photon. An evacu-8 hood might serve one well also.

Most of these items can be left in a briefcase until needed. You probably wont need that asprin immediately.

Thanks man. I LOVE gear lists. While looking for work, it's a cheap way to entertain oneself.

My interview suit fits me like a glove. Frown. I'll have to give this some thought.

I probably won't be in IT with my next job. Programming has collapsed in my area. Now I'm aiming for technical editing. Can't justify a Leatherman if I'm doing that.

If the building collapses I'm dead. I just like to feel that I'm reasonably prepared.

If you wear dress trousers, how can you fit a Leatherman Wave in your front pocket without it pulling your pants down or just feeling plain bulky?
