Carry guns in australia OMG you have to be kidding me
Gun ownership is more or less illegal and a hanging offence

Then what do you use if somebody cuts you off, or is driving too slow in the passing lane?

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

Hey guys nice topic going here… just thought I'd add one or two items I have found that are very easy to pack away in tight spaces in a vehicle and can come in very handy.

Survival Pocket Chain saw… very small and great for if you take a trail and run into a downed tree blocking your path out.
Amazon.com: Chainmate CM-24SSP 24-Inch Survival Pocket Chain Saw With Pouch: Patio, Lawn & Garden

Emergency Thermal Blanets… are cheap and nice to have in case of emergency!
Emergency Mylar Thermal Blankets (Pack of 10): Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific

Life Straw… you guys need to remember storing water is heavy and water actually can "go bad" if you keep it in a container which had been opened. Bacteria, etc can grow in there! The life straw is an emergency water filtration item for UNDER 20 bucks and its small and lighter than even a bottled water.
Amazon.com: LifeStraw Personal Water Filter: Sports & Outdoors

If you are interested in a book on survival… its very small and has great info for emergency situations.
SAS Survival Handbook, Revised Edition: For Any Climate, in Any Situation: John 'Lofty' Wiseman: 9780061733192: Amazon.com: Books

Trench shovel is GREAT to have in a vehicle like a Jeep. Folds down to a compact size, its light, and the military versions even have serrated edges on them for cutting or can be used as a weapon. Here is my personal favorite version… its legit military surplus so high quality and cheap. Comes with a carrying case which easily attaches to back pack or other.
Amazon.com: Tri-Fold Entrenching Tool (E-Tool), Genuine Military Issue, with Shovel Cover: Sports & Outdoors

And lastly… a 3,000 strike fire starter. One item I make sure I have stored away in multiple places is a fire starter piece like this. Light, cheap, and small so easy to store.
Amazon.com: Light My Fire Original Swedish FireSteel Scout 3,000 Strike Fire Starter - Red: Home Improvement

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

My kit contains:

1 Gallon of water stored in 2 2-quart military canteens (the big flimsy ones)
5 straw pieces cut about 1 in in length pinched and melted on both ends, then filled with non-scented bleach
1 millitary issue canteen cup
5 standard cotton handkerchiefs
package of 10 indivually wrapped mylar blankets (2 of which I installed metal grommets for easy shelter making.)
1 survival belt (made with a polymer GT Cobra buckle 500lb rating and 100' of 550 cord weaved with slatts knots)
1 magnesium fire starter
2 israeli bandages
1 CAT Tournequet
1 film canister filled with dryer lent/vaseline
5 various color Chemlights
1 white twin size bed sheet

All of this is stored in my MOLLE Assault Pack

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

I have to ask you guys... How are you storing your water!?!?!? If you are filling up canteens you really need to be careful with letting that sit for even just a few weeks before drinking it! Read up on bacteria and mold issues with water storage. Unless you sterilize everything and are dang careful it can be a pretty nasty situation if you need to drink bad water!

Again not saying you ARE doing it wrong but I do want to point out you need to be sure you aren't! Most people think filling up a canteen is fine and the water never goes bad.... Very much incorrect!

I know that since I found that empty space under the drivers seat (where the quadra drive computers are housed) since I have the e package, I keep granola bars and bottled water in there. I keep them wrapped up in a blanket so not to rattle around.

Also, I like your idea of the fire starter. I have the water proof matches but why not have that too. Not for nothing, a new dad here, so why not have everything you can ever need?

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

There are a lot of great ideas here. As for storing water, add a few drops of bleach to the water, and it will be good for years. A few drops of bleach in a gallon of water IS safe to drink.

Still trying to figure out how to fit the kitchen sink in the back.

One thing I have not noticed, which is one item that is more likely to be needed than most things I see is a roll of silicone tape. It is high temp, and self sealing. Great for emergency wrapping a blown radiator hose or leak, a vacuum leak, an exhaust leak, and many other uses.

In the end, everyone views what they need as different, and no two lists are the same. Take with you what you feel you need to be safe. If you are a city driver, the list will be a lot different than someone who lives in the outback. If you live in the land of 10,000 lakes, your list will be different than someone who lives in the Sahara. The one thing you do not want to leave behind is your wife.........because you will never hear the end of it
