    Today I received my new bag, a 5.11 Rush 12. I'm filling it up now with items that I think are necessary in an urban environment.

    If I should tell that you're only allowed to carry one item, what would that be?

    If I was limited to just a single item, It would be a smartphone with extended battery/battery case on it. It has the greatest potential to get me out of the greatest number of bad situations.

    Now if this was a purely hypothetical and it did not have to be something I had, then I would pick an American Express Black Card. With it I could buy anything else I needed....

    By carry, do you mean Every Day Carry ?

    If so, I would say a decent smartphone, especially in an urban environment.

    I could never choose just one item LoL. My phone and at least one blade are always in arms reach. Even when I sleep.

    Drawing a blank. Something clever may get put here!

    I thought by someone asking a question they would want a reasonable and thought out answer... I would like to change my answer then to a Baby Elephant.

    Kimber 1911 on my hip. I wouldn't carry a bag for just one thing. :)

    Nice...An excellent shooter and doubles as a war club when you run out of cartridges.

    In an urban setting, my one item would be a credit card.....anything else I needed would soon follow.:D

    Well, no guns allowed in The Netherlands.
    Credit card is a good idea. But I was thinking about adding stuff that I can use in case of an emergency. I don't wanna go into a store first if something bad happens.
