ethernectar’s EDC Bag
Editor’s Note: This is a moderately survivalist version of the man purse. It’s a good blend of emergency preparedness and everyday utility for work and other tasks. A more “extreme” version of this kind of carry is called the Bug Out Bag (BOB):
"The primary purpose of a bug-out bag is to allow one to evacuate quickly if a disaster should strike. It is therefore prudent to gather all of the materials and supplies that might be required to do this into a single place, such as a bag or a few storage containers. The recommendation that a bug-out bag should contain enough supplies for seventy two hours arises from advice from organizations responsible for disaster relief and management that it may take them up to seventy two hours to reach people affected by a disaster and offer help.
In addition to allowing one to survive a disaster evacuation, a bug-out bag may also be utilized when sheltering in place as a response to emergencies such as house fires, blackouts, tornadoes, and other severe natural disasters.”
