the leanest edc I've seen were the gold charms of a Thai "baht" bracelet where the gold mass was actually marked in grams on the charms, and the Vietnamese "di di mao" (rough translation... to leave quickly) gold bracelets where wealth was added in the form of another link in the bracelet.... easy to run out the back door as the bad guys came in the front,and you take your wealth with you... with cash, you could buy what you need when you get there

it was easy to spot the Christians In Action up around Chiang Mai due to their heavy gold ID bracelet, where they might need to buy their way out of trouble one link at a time

if you are not familiar with the term "blood chit" you might look it up...I was told they were worth about $50,000 during the air war in Viet Nam ...
