The list below is everything that I carry in my “emergency bag”. This bag comes with me on pretty much every hike, and contains everything I should need if/when the unexpected happens. These are the types of things that fall into the “things you’ll wish you had, but probably forgot” category. That’s why I keep them together in an emergency bag, so they’re ready to go at any time, and I don’t have to worry about forgetting something.
