Just scanned this thread again.

Unless your jurisdiction has laws more generous than mine, these kits have too many sharps and bangs. Better carry a heavily postage prepaid tyvek envelope big enough to mail home most of your EDC gear when you have to get through a metal detector or on a commercial flight. And that's if you think to hit the mailbox before someone with a badge looks at your stuff and confiscates it.

Gentlemen, are we not civilized as well as prepared? The hygiene category seems significantly under represented. Amazed at how few carry a comb - may have to do with the personal hair situation. Not one condom? No breath mints, Listerine sheets, or bottles of Binaca? No mini toothbrushes?

Likewise, I think at least a nod to the food category is appropriate. I suggest a small hard candy, candy bar, package of jerky, or sport energy gel pack, something to fill that empty stomach while waiting longer than expected in a place where you cannot transform money into something to eat.

food? I always have food... Sorry bout not having a condom... i just dnt think i'll need it... the gum is mint so that counts... I know what to hand what not to carry in the airport, cuz I usually have to get up too early to even think to bring a knife...

Good ideas though! These are just some of my excuses smile

CS, you don't carry a condom cuz you don't need it.... but the time will come when you do, and you better use it young man! (there's no "scolding big-brother" face icon).

I just grabbed one of these for trips where I have to go through an airport. Supposedly, security always misses them, and even if they don't its very cheap. Anyway, I had a gift cert so what the heck, might as well.
