I do have the BCB folding pouch, but I don't use it anymore.
I do carry some stuff on my belt and in my pockets.(my EDC)
Here we go:

On belt
Leatherman/ Maglite combo
FAK
Orange survival bag
cell phone

In my pocket:
Survival tin
wallet/ID
Bandanna
tinder/matches
dental floss
Duct-tape
mirror with rope wrapped on it

Of course this could all be put in a pouch.....
Please let me know what you carry

Do they have mylar oven bags in Europe? It's a bag of nonmetallised mylar bag that is used for cooking things like chickens.

I carry them along with metal clips to keep them close. Very light, very strong, and boiling water doesn't faze it.

Nope, only flimsy aluminium foil.
At my hardware store they even didn't have HD aluminium foil

Skip the hardware store for these guys. Grocery store, in with the wax paper, aluminum foil and the like. Tell the clerk you are looking for a plastic oven bag, for moist cooking of chickens. If they look at you funny, tell them truth- the technique was developed by the french years ago.

While you are there, look at the aluminim foils. They should list thier length. Weigh them by hand, and take the one that feels heaviest compaired to the length of the roll.

And breast milk bags. Very good, best zip seals ever, and great water bags. And don't forget the value of feminine hygine producets in both first aid and firestarting.

Yeah, our addiction requires a certain lack of shame. :P

If I remeber correctly, Jim is 16. Asking for breast milk bags at that age, requires definatly al lack of shame <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

But I'm impressed what he does at his young age, especially living in the Netherlands.

well being also dutch, HD alluminium foil is indeed very very hard to find. So are ovenbag and breast milk bags. I work in a store that sells many things, which include alluminium foil, oventrays and babymilk things. But no bags...

At any age when you are a guy, tampons are kinda odd to buy. But they burn sooooo well. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
