Yes, and rubber bands and paper clips!

Urban camping = one roll of toilet paper in your hotel room

A laptop back pack would work well and provide for extra space for some of the other things. Add a power converter 12Vdc to 120, this can charge cell phone ect.
I would include a small pry bar, channel loc pliers, a couple of screwdrivers. This was part of my EDC at several of the offices that I have worked.

Under extreme circumstances - survival is a bitc*. It's the last thing you do ... before you die or live.
My suggestion is to save "fashionable" for the good things of your life.

The tote bag is not a bad choice, esp. if you can avoid carrying heavy loads and walking a lot of miles.

A backpack is convenient because: 1) It's strong, 2) It may have a lot of compartments which allows better organization (it's faster to find things), 3) It spreads the weight evenly on both of your shoulders, 4) It allows you to keep the load centered on your body - making long-distance walks less tiring, and 5) It allows you to keep both hands free in a personal emergency.

But the important thing may simply be - that you have some kind of bag set aside with a few essentials in it. Everything else is just gravy.

Also, that's probably too much paracord...
