What do you think should be the maximum weight of a Get Home Bag in a city, if I use a train, bus or bicycle? That could be a shoulder-bag or backpack, including it's content. You might call that an EDC-bag as well. IMO this Get Home Bag should be a compromise between carrying-comfort and preparedness. I could need that bag for certain emergency items, in case of an accident or disaster, while I am away from home. Or in case I get locked out from my home accidentally. But I also don't want to stand out in the crowd too much, permanently carrying a large bag, which can also be exhausting. This Get Home Bag could contain for example: a small bicycle tube repair kit and small bicycle pump a few small zip-ties for repairs multi tool a few aluminum carabiners in different sizes some safety matches first aid kit with small scissors, duct tape, dental gloves, kiss of life, elastic bandage, etc. some medication small bottle of insect-repellent and sun-screen chapstick small hair-comb small toothbrush, dental sticks and dental floss some tissues and a handkerchief of woven fabric a few masks for corona-prevention small bottle of hand-sanitizer small amout of emergency-food a thin teaspoon some drinking-water, also for hand washing with soap or shampoo (which I carry in a tiny plastic bottle) rain clothing dry thin socks sweater, winter gloves and thin scarf and bonnet in winter a baseball cap for sun and rain one or two smartphones in a protective padded plastic box smartphone charger and cable power pack some printed road maps and a mini-compass, in case the smarthpone gets inoperable or empty a bicycle helmet some writing utensils two sewing needles small flashlight and two bicycle lights, with spare batteries reflective material to use in dense traffic a few yards of paracord, for tying objects to a bike or backpack, etc. an empty garbage bag for various purposes, to use as a grocery bag or to cover a dirty park bench, or for first aid etc. What of this equipment could be left out, to save weight and bulk, since it is meant to carry without a car?
