What have you added to your kit? What do you wish you had?

with the craziness around the country... picked up a G43x via the Blue Label program with a DD214....nylon flats fishing shirt as cover up... I'm typically not too very far from the Tacoma, and it carries much of what I need

I keep a waistpack with a coin purse, liquid soap and hand sanitizer in Walmart travel tubes, a folding knife, an n-99 mask from Amazon, chapstick, eye drops, Carmex, hearing aid batteries, a small plastic container with 2 5 grain aspirin and a pair of foam earplugs, 3 X 5 spiral notebook, pocket comb, a set of earphones wrapped around a piece of cardboard which in turn is wrapped with duct tape, small tube of hand cream, small tin with bandaids and safety pins, flashlight, and an ink pen. Wuth the liquid soap and my hankerchief, I can always clean my hands if needed.

EDC doesn’t change significantly, still pocket carry, I just change pockets. Long pants, sweaters and jackets switch to 6 pocket shorts and T-shirts.

My EDC these days is more concerned with "What caliber, what capacity?", not "What SPF?"

These days, what is important to have with you to ensure your immediate survival has changed from years past.

Nothing specifically changing because it's summer. But there have been a few product releases that might be incorporated once they get more widely available.

One is the new Alox SAK, the Farmer X (Farmer with scissors), to replace the Farmer I currently carry.
And Knipex have released a 100mm/4" version of their Cobra pliers, Cobra XS

I have become a fan of Shemagh's due to my beard and this COVID-19 thing smile. Beyond that my kit has focused on redundancies and more medical, not internal medicine but more IFAK's and midsize med kits.

I have noticed that I am now more inclined to carry my bigger Bug Out Bag with me in the car more often than not. and am looking to upgrade my EDC to a more sturdy Day pack.

Looks like mid to late August for me to order a pair from overseas, here in the USA.

Would've thought KC Tool over there would have them in sooner than that.

They are slowly appearing in a few UK plumbing stores, but prices seems little high especially when including PnP.

Can get the 180mm version 33% cheaper than the 100mm ones atm.

Its storm season here in the midwest, so we're adding raincoats and weather radios.
