The following are the contents of my EDC bag that doubles as a Get Home Bag in case of a nasty emergency. I work in a moderate size city and live in a rural area. The commute (on foot or vehicle) home changes from urban to suburban to rural. The suburban and rural areas are mixed ag/woodland typical of the Midwest with ample water. Please tell me where you see weakness in the gear. One area I know I need to improve upon is comms and a solar charger. I have put a good bit of thought into what goes into the bag and feel it is all necessary. For instance the respirator and goggles might seem like overkill; but I work a few blocks downwind of numerous chemical manufacturing plants. The pack is a 5.11 Rush MOAB 10 with an ITS Tallboy Trauma Kit attached to the outside; both in gray.

I'd say you're prepared. I've also got a XDS 9, I love that pistol. In my wife's car I keep a medium size first aid kit (forgot kit size), morakniv companion, larger size SAK (woodsman I believe), 20 dollars cash, triple A batteries for a cheap little flashlight I have in there, and 4 bottles of water. I add more here and there.
