I covered this subject some time ago in another thread; experience has taught me what to carry in my EDC bag. Most items cover minor emergencies I run into from time to time. It also has things I use every time I leave the house.

And yet you forgot your cell-phone. Just sayin’...

My vest with the EDC-stuff weighs about 2kg. How about that! smile

I use my cell phone more at home than I do on the road. Therefore, I keep it out so I more time to answer it before it goes to voicemail.

A great reason to keep a kit* packed.

* includes edc, a work bag, jacket kit and car.

This is the principle of the "go bag."
Pre-packed and ready to go.

This tread is a good reminder to keep bags packed. (edc, work and camping bags.) And mark them with a tag so others can find them.

Each of our vehicles contains a kit with the basics (water, shelter, knife, fire, 1st aid, assorted tools). My vehicle also contains a permanent set of hunting gear (ear & eye protection, butchering kit, etc. I love Texas!). There are two shoulder bags next to the front door, one is my foraging kit, the other is my day hike kit. Depending on where I was going I'd grab one of those.
