Remember that your EDC are those items that you have on you to make your life easier and to be prepared for emergencies.
As women we should be at an advantage here since it is expected for us to be carrying our purse with us.
The question then becomes what items should we be keeping in our purses? It needs to be stated in the beginning that your EDC should be tailored to your own life, needs and expected emergencies. The items recommended here are simply suggestions based off of the items that my wife and I carry or are considering adding to our EDC Kit.
- Pocket Knife
- Pepper Spray
- Tactical Pen
- Personal Alarm
- Cell Phone/Charger
- Pen and Paper
- Sharpie Marker
Recently my wife, daughter and I were at a restaurant and my wife had to use the restroom. This was a unique situation as I remained at the table with our daughter. Now time had past and I had gotten a gut feeling to go and check on my wife. When I arrived in the restroom my wife was under the handicap stall door. She said that she screamed but nobody could hear her.
This brings me to an important piece of gear that we did not have in our Kit, a Personal Alarm or Whistle. I imagine that she would have been better able to get someone’s attention had she had something like that on her person.
- Emergency Blanket
- First Aid Kit
- Hand Sanitizer
- Face Masks
- Personal Items
