Micro Get Home/EDC Bag
Many of us want to be ready in case of natural or man made disasters. However, many of these bags we put together aren’t always with us. I wanted to put together a bare-bones emergency kit that I could keep on me always. I’ll show you what I have now and what else I need to get for this micro get home bag/EDC (everyday carry).
5.11 P.U.S.H. Pack – Basically, this bag holds some basics while I’m out on short trips. I used to use it as my Bible bag but I’m going for a smaller, Army issue Bible so I can have some emergency gear in it as well.
Notepad & Pen – I have a Moleskin notebook with a leather cover I made. I’m going to replace it with a write in the rain notepad and make another leather cover for it. The write in the rain notepad is a little smaller (contact list inside if cell towers are down or your phone is dead).
Bandana/Scarf – I keep a scarf or shamage in all my bags. I’ve spent a little time on the street at night, and without four walls, you might need some barrier from the wind or the cold.
Some self explanatory stuff are:
- Fire kit
- Folding Knife
- Fixed Blade Knife
- First-Aid kit
- Flash light(s)
- Poncho/Thermal blanket
- Water purification tablets
- Multi tool
- Some cash
- Ear Plugs
- Ammo/Loaded magazines if carrying concealed
I know this looks like a lot, but it all fits in the bag I’ve chosen. I feel this is more than what I need in most situations when I’m not too far from home. The items may adjust over time, but we need to start somewhere.
Be safe. Use wisdom. God bless.
