What do you carry with you every day? and how?
Something I’ve always struggled with is every-day carry of preps. Sure I have a few key items that live in my pockets, and a few more that live in my computer bag/briefcase, but beyond that I struggle to bring myself to carry more. This is largely because I just don’t like the burden of an off-body carry bag or pack, and sometimes when I do carry a pack I forget it places.
I’d love to know what people carry with them every day, and how they carry it. My list includes:
- On body (in pockets): Full size multi-tool. Micro multi-tool and micro flashlight attached to key ring. Cash, cards, and ID in wallet. Leatherman Croc in wallet. Burta Beeswax (never without!). And of course my phone.
- In laptop bag (which is always with me while I’m work): Water bottle. Basic might-need meds (ibuprofen, cold meds, etc). Mini flashlight. Phone charger. Protein bar. Hand Sanitizer. KN-95 mask. Folding knife. A few assorted band-aids. (This is all in addition to my computer and work-related items that need to be in there).
I see lots of room for improvement, so I’d love to hear others’ thoughts and ideas. And perhaps more importantly, how you are carrying every day!
