Re: small bag

Also try a google search for "maxpedition cross bag" and see if they look like what you are after.

Re: Close combat self defense

Personally, I'd follow the "nuke the site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure..." line of thinking.

I have orbital nukes on my list of desired preps (doesn't everyone?)

Re: Under estimating over the counter medication

Thanks for the timely reminder! I've just ordered another batch of medications from ebay. You can buy packs of 6 boxes with free delivery which saves picking a couple up each time at different shops.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 4

I'm looking at winter preps at the moment. I want to put a couple of 2kW convector heaters away and get some wool blankets.

Re: Spare/emergency cash carrier

I have one of these on my keys with a £20 in it and another clipped to the inside of my Maxpedition EDC pouch. Although I've never had cause to use either of them, it never hurts to have some emergency cash!

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 4

My wife now has an EDC multiool on her keys! It may only be a tiny SAK Classic SD but this is a minor miracle as regards her prepping awareness as she is completely off-side with it all :D

Re: Best Leatherman

I carry a Leatherman Juice XE6 in a leather pouch on my belt. The knife, pliers, scissors and corkscrew get the most use.
