British Bill’s Survival Tip

Defining EDC, I counsel recent preppers that ESSENTIAL CORE EDC items MUST go on the PERSON and never in bags, rucks etc. I counsel them to assume that, during a sudden incident, they’re separated from their EDC bag, Bug Out Bag, Get Home Bag, etc., and must survive ONLY with what they’ve on their individuals (i.e., whatever is of their pants/shirt/jacket pockets, or worn on their belt/shoulder holster).

So, PDW (where legal) Knife(3), Lighter(9), Flashlight(8), Compass, Cell Phone, Wallet, Shades(13), Keys, Pen(6), Notebook, Kerchief, Gloves, Hat, Cash, Paracord, Micro FAC etc. These CORE essentials remain on the person in any respect times, whilst the secondary gear can go in a bag or pack, and third level gear in vehicle/office/home/cache. In many circumstances, it’s just too easy for the citizen to be separated from their CORE EDC gear on the worst possible time.
