This video isn’t really about preparedness, though he does include some useful survival gear, but more about the daily items one might want to have handy for everyday needs.

Urban EDC Backpack

I always enjoy finding out what others put together in their survival gear since it gives me the opportunity to consider items that I might not have included in my own bags.
