    EDC Emergency Kit

    Not something very elaborate but that could fit inside half the Clear Quarter Packing Cube.

    Post edited after Moose asked if I wanted suggestions about content.

    This is exactly what I am after.

    I have a ready made emergency kit which is a promotional item, its place is in the car.

    I also have emergency items in the house.

    But, an EDC is missing, I want to gather lightweight portable emergency items which people find essential.

    Hi backpack, are you looking for a contents suggestion? If so, bandaids, neosporin, asprin, moleskin, fold up scissors, duct tape, I wrap a few feet around a business card, handi wipes, nail clippers, twezzers, small eyeglass repair kit, sewing needle & thread, small pen & paper, emergency phone numbers, I had at least one other important thing but it fell out of my head.

    Also add a couple kleenex wrapped in plastic wrap. I carry a book of matches and chapstick too. The chapstick burns well and will get a fire going really quickly (I live in the boonies/almost the great north woods). I keep money in my bag too, small bills though. I want to be able to pay for, well whatever, when the power is out. A frequent occurance around here.
    Don't forget a extra house key and the saftey pins.

    May I add dental floss. Excellent for emergencies. Google it!

    Yes, dental floss thank you that's what fell out of my head. You can sew up anything with it.

    A miniature bottle of scotch, bourbon, gin, vodka or whiskey of your choice.

    If you get hurt and are in pain, you can drink it. If stress gets really bad, you can drink it. If you get a cut or abrasion, you can pour some of it on the wound to disinfect it and drink the rest to help with any discomfort you might have. If your blood sugar should drop and you need a little burst of energy, just break the seal and imbibe.

    Seems vodka would be good as a disinfectant for just about anything. The only catch I can see is having to temporially move it to your 311 bag if flying. A small bother for the benefit it could provide. Like yohopee I'm adding one to mine.

    FrankII you made me laugh, hard and out loud. My kids are staring at me trying to figure out what's wrong with mom.
    I really, really like TB Bags!

    Good one FrankII! My jaw drop, Dorayme burst out laughing, Moose and Yohopee smile and give thumbs up.

    Additional suggestions more on the line of Moose's EDC Emergency Kit are welcomed, said the Victorian Backpack.


    Yohopee what do you think would happen to that bottle if forgotten in an EDC bag, also used for travel?

    It would run off by itself because it is so different looking.

    Ha, ha!

    More suggestions? Well, I am sure that most of us already carry a whistle, but a spare one clipped to the emergency kit would be handy. Acme makes a glow in the dark version (I had one for about 15 years until it finally broke). There are many options out there.

    Right, whistle, good one. Should add one of them too.

    I have two flashlights with me every day. One small one on my key chain and another in my purse. It is darker than a pocket here nine months of the year. Late December/early January the sun comes up late and sets by four in the afternoon, or earlier.

    Ah! I forgot something important, a small mirror. Especially if you plan back country trekking. Ideal for signaling, starting fires, and looking good!
