Kits versus dispersed carry, please share your thoughts
« on: September 18, 2009, 11:12:34 AM »

On the subject of Urban Survival and kits, what about placement of tools and items on the person, not just in say a pack of some kind?

While not perfect, I think Canuck had a good start on this with his vest.   That and remembering last winter when I got my pack ripped off reminded me, this may be a good idea for back ups and OGG (Oh Gee Gollies) in terms of "Dam dam" aka a generic not good situation.

I do that to a small degree, keeping specific items on my person. They include a Leatherman Surge multi-tool, Wenger Survivor Swiss Army Knife, Maglight Solitare flashlight with high output LED conversion, 2.8" blade Leatherman liner lock, Wenger Gentleman's knife with LED light, a signalling whistle, Benchmade knife sharpener, a Brookstone button battery light, Bic lighter, my nitro pills, a larger pill bottle with my noon time medications plus extra, a Write in the Rain notebook, two inkpens, a 2x Fresnel lens, my keys, wallet, watch and bandana. Not a true kit, but a start.

I used to (when I wore jeans ALL the time) always have a knife on me, no matter where I went (almost had it confiscated at the court house one time because I completely forgot it was there ... thankfully, they let me run out to the truck) and wore a fanny pack full of anything I would need in case of minor emergency.  Now that I've gone a bit girly (I never know if I will have pockets or not), I rely on my purse too much (though, if I get a bigger one it could make a pretty effective weapon!  LOL!).  I rarely leave my property, so, Grog, you have made me think.  I have to fix this.
