A lot will depend on where you live. In MN, I had to plan for potentially sub-zero temps. Or just cold, even in summer. In TX, not so much.
Also you can research Get Home Bags and Search and Rescue Go Bags. Both are basically designed for 1-3 days on foot, without support.
I try to keep my stuff modular, so I have everything, but only carry what I need. Let us know what you end up with!
What I lack in knowledge & skill, I make up for with sarcasm & bad jokes.

*Survival kit (to include life straw and fire starter, maybe a small tarp)
*Packable rain suit (cold is one thing, cold and wet is another)
*Packable boots (I like Lems mountain boot)
*Survival snacks (like the vacuum sealed biscuits)
*Map and compass (if you're generally always in the same area anyway)
*Socks (wool of course, I like Darn Tough)
That's in addition to whatever you EDC, and you may carry some already. I think that'd get you through your average wrong turn/stuck overnight scenario.

Depending on how aggressive your adventures are, and how good cell coverage you may want to add in a SPOT or similar device. Not knowing what you're planning it's tough to say.
Also extra batteries for any device you have that needs batteries to function, or a way to charge them (in the case of USB devices).
I also tend to carry a weather radio so I can get alerts for my area that aren't based on a cellphone. I picked up one the size of a small radio for 10 dollars. A smart carry, especially if you aren't familiar with visually calling the weather.
