I find some of these a bit odd, why does one person need two or three knifes, a handgun, two or more lighters, a firelighting pack and multiple torches?

I understand the need to be prepared but isnt some of it a bit overkill?

Well, I don't think it's too much of overkill and here's why:

1. Two or three knives. Most are carrying a folding knife, a fixed blade, and a multitool. The folding knife is used for quick tasks when you want something that is handy and quick to access, most are probably carrying this in their pocket. The fixed blade is most likely inside or attached to the pack so it's not quite as quick to access, but you'll want it for heavier tasks where the folder is not sufficient. The multitool is nice to have because it has the screw drivers, pliers, and other tools that would be too heavy to carry separately, but not too heavy when combined into one item.

2. Handgun. The handgun is not duplicated elsewhere in the kit, so I wouldn't consider it redundant and certainly not overkill. No other tool is a very good substitute when you need a gun.

3. Two or more lighters and a firelighting pack. Lighters don't weigh much and will be well worth the minimal weight. The old saying "two is one, one is none" is applicable here. I don't want to have to start a fire using a bow drill during an emergency. That said my preference is not two lighters, but two separate fire starting methods. I carry a lighter and a ferrocium rod.

4. Multiple torches (flashlights for those of us on this side of the pond). Again, "two is one, one is none." My preference is one flashlight (Surefire Fury) and one headlamp. That way I have redundancy without duplication and they are useful for different purposes.

Is doubling up overkill? Maybe in some circumstances it is. In an emergency or survival situation I'd rather start with a little more than I need and drop items if for some reason I need to cut weight for long distance travel. Of course there are other opinions and your mileage may vary.

LongHaul spelled it out pretty good for you Englishjim. Just remember that it's different strokes for different folks. If somebody puts thought into their kit and feels good about it than good for them. Everybody has different opinions on the matter of EDC and some of those opinions may be more educated or founded on actual experience than others. But as with what LongHaul discussed redundancy can be a very good thing. My personal experiences has proven that to me countless times. My personal EDC is spread out between what's on my body, what's in my EDC pack, and what is in my truck. What I carry on my person and in my bag may be more weight than you or somebody else wants to carry, but it is my weight to carry, not yours. Spread out between my person and pack I have multiple bladed objects, typically two hand guns, at least two light sources, and at least two fire starting sources. My reason is because I count on the fact that experience has taught me that even the most reliable of products and systems can fail, and usually when needed the most.

Being a law student next to degree, in Italy, and working in a maritime law office, this is my EDC-carry suitcase, enough for almost every circumstances I can face. (double band radios are in the office, so I don't need to take them around every time!)
From left to right and top to bottom:

Leatherman ALX with salomon-bar knotted paracord
Ultrafire lamp with Cree led
Southord 20 pieces lockpickers
Asus EEEPC netbook
Star Wars Moleskine
Silicone Grease
Parker Jotter
Tivoly multibits, customized to fit into the leatherman
Emergenxy whistle
Kindle (uploaded with law texts and almost every document or contract I need)
Rolled-up 100 mph tape

Contained in the cigar's bag on the bottom:
Sterile glows
Sterile gauze
Bandages
Condom (you can never say!)
Scissors

On the right side on the bottom, inside a Toscano-cigars case, all the office supplies

(please don't judge the mess on my house table!)

I serve on our local fire and rescue department, so I make bags to meet certain incident requirements. No one bag can fit everything I need for all the different types of calls. This is my everyday trauma care shoulder bag. It is not a survival/bug-out bag; this bag is tailored for effectiveness at vehicle collisions, but would also be very useful at the aftermath of a shooting (lots of drug activity where I am). It only has enough medical equipment for one or two patients, but the bag is a very manageable size and can be worn on top of my turnout gear if necessary. I have other bags that contain survival gear and active shooter gear, those bags meet different mission requirements. A larger EMT bag is in the works.

Posted Image

Flashlight
Safety glasses (these are great for all occasions; in rain, snow, working on a patient spewing fluids, etc…)
Tweezers
Shears (these are actually a spare, my primary shears are in my wallet for EDC)
Hemostats (probably not for tying off an artery in my role, but great for other things)
Notebook + pencil + sharpy
Knife (usually put this in my pocket when I respond)
Spare Glock mag
Warm little mits (I wear these under my extrication gloves, they’re great!)
Gloves (these aren’t nomex, if I’m working on a burning vehicle; I will be in full turnout gear)
Cliff bar (usually have 2-3 of these, not sure where the others went)
Jelly beans (usually have some of these for diabetics, they’re small and cheap)
Blanket (the shiny kind)
Extra exam gloves (I also keep a pair of these in my pockets when I’m out and about)
Hand wash sanitizer
Burn Jel (great stuff, the dressings by the same company are also great)
Antibiotic gel (for little wounds, will probably ditch this in favor of burn dressings)
Tapes (both kinds)
Zip tie (for securing a splint, houseline, or restraining an unruly person/patient)
Gauze pads (for minor injuries)
Bag of medications (asprin, painkillers, etc)
Bag of bandaids of all sorts
2 packs of Kerlex gauze
Nasal airway (military standard)
More paracord
Quikclot
Splint (knock-off of the SAM, but it works great)
Israeli combat bandage
SOFT-W tourniquet (the Wide version features a 1.5" band rather than a 1")

I also have a casualty extrication/vehicle stabilization strap on the side of my bag, a headlamp attached to the strap, and 40+ feet of paracord.

I love seeing what the rest of you guys have been posting, it gives me lots of ideas for my other bags.

Stay safe!

In my part of the country (often rural) caving is a popular passtime, mainly because we have a lot of caves; and one of the rules for cave guides is to always have at least three independent sources of light at all times. Something that stuck with me; hencce my bag has three electric and two chemical lights. And in my view a pocket knife and a multi-tool have different roles.

Maxpedition Leo Versipack.

Nalgene
Radio with extended battery
3 pairs of Ziptie flexcuffs
1 pair of peerless hinged handcuffs
2 handcuff keys
Oakley's
Glock 30 carried in maxpedition sneak holster or blackhawk serpa
1 spare 10round mag, 1 spare 13 round mag, and 1 spare 26 round mag
Pelican 7060 flashlight
Slim clip wallet (always empty)
Pens, sharpies, notebook
Headphones
Business cards
Credentials and calendar
Bottom row - kershaw ripcord, kershaw 1595G10

The items in my pack change depending on if i am working or off. This is what it looks like when I am off,.except I normally carry the G30 in a blackhawk serpa when I am off. When I am working some things come out of the bag and onto my belt but the space gets filled up with snacks, handwarmers, lots of extra shotgun shells and my G30 goes into the maxpedition sneak holster.
