What do you EDC, pack and store for comfort rather than need?

Coffee. While Iím not a big fan of instant coffee, Starbucks Via is pretty decent and itís packed with my isopropane stove in the emergency kit. At any given time, Iím only five or so minutes from a cup of hot coffee.

Not sure that a caffeine laden cup of coffee is a luxury. It just might make a notable difference in many situations.

My emergency kit has exactly the same rig and has for many years....

A Kindle eBook reader with about a dozen book choices loaded beyond the one being currently read

A small, ancient SanDisk SANSA Clip MP3 player with earbuds, loaded with my audiobook du jour

A couple of different colored 3 foot pieces of kernmantle climbing accessory rope (5mm?) for knot tying practice

An insulated coffee mug (full) - oh wait, scratch that - it is not "comfort", it is a critical infrastructure "need"
