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.

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