What should be in an emergency kit for women?
I have been asked many times what an emergency kit for Women should include. So in this article, I will show you a number of remedies and stuff you can use in your survival kit.
The purpose of survival kits or emergency kits is of course to increase your chances of getting through a difficult situation alive. So we need as much equipment as possible in as little space as possible.
This is of course a reflection of my own survival kit – which is always composed with the job in mind. Also if I’m not at job!
How to design an Emergency Kit for Women using a purse
It is truly an art to be able to design a women’s emergency kit for a purse or a handbag. A bug out bag for women! Every single item in the survival kit has to have a meaningful purpose and you want quality tools! No cheap stuff from a toy store! We preferably need military-grade equipment. No Chinese shit! You don’t wanna be in a pitch-black forest at midnight with a flashlight that doesn’t work! Or even worse – empty batteries! New batteries EVERY time you go no matter the condition of the old batteries. Use cheap batteries for the kid’s flashlights.
If you only have your purse you really have to select which items you need and which you don’t. I actually recommend a purse that is big enough to contain the things you decide to bring rather than omitting important remedies.
Women’s emergency kit
Women’s emergency kit checklist:
My Tactical handbag. This is my bug out bag list.
I have a normal handbag with a metal frame. This frame is important. It can be used to create a lock pick, or it can be used as a primitive knife. Not as handy as a real knife, but far better than having nothing. Vital things are concealed.
During the years my list of survival tools has changed a lot and it will also change in the future. For the time being my emergency bag looks like this:
- 30 feet of nylon wire and a fishing hook.
- Two small screwdrivers.
- A Hex key
- A lock pick set.
- Two feet of duct tape.
- A small compass
- 2 needles and three feet of sewing thread.
- Small bottle with alcohol for disinfection
- 3 sterile napkins
- a mini scalpel
- A pair of rounded tweezers for bullet extraction
- A few energy snacks.
- A tactical pen
- A small LED flashlight
- A Paracord Bracelet (10 feet polyester)
- 2 deciliters of distilled water for cleaning wounds or drinking.
- 3 Carabiners – considering downgrading to two.
- A ‘snowflake’ multitool.
- Night Vision Goggles – some times I need to ditch them as they are not exactly small
- A multitool Axe with a small hammer, saw a small knife, mini screwdrivers, different openers and a pair of scissors.
- A black camouflage stick
- A 30/15cm Mil-Tec combat knife
- A few paperclips (for opening handcuffs)
- A standard key for handcuffs
- A credit card with sharpened edges – can be used to slice
- Cash in relevant language including a few coins to put in a sock and create a Blackjack .
But I got more stuff hidden around my body and my clothing.
- A Yahwara. In my hair, I carry a Yahwara. It is hidden in my ponytail and no one would suspect it for a weapon. It is almost impossible to notice and if someone notices, it simply looks like a device to handle my ponytail.
- My clothing is always black on the inside, so I can turn them inside out and be invisible at night.
- Black Combat boots with 60 cm laces which can be useful. Have multiple models to select from.
- My T-shirts are cheap and can easily be torn apart and used as bandages.
- For partying, I have convertible shoes where the high heels can be dismounted in a second and turned into flat shoes great for running.
- In my sleeves, I have two Wire Saws without handles. One for wood and one for metal.
- Mil-Tec Gloves.
- Mil-Tec Paracord belt with 90 feet of polyester wire.
My weaponry looks like this:
- H&K G36K and H&K G36C. I named them Short and Shorter because of their size. Both take 5.56 cal. and 30 round mags. (613/833mm & 500/716mm length). I only pick one of them.
- Glock 22 Primary Firearm, a few extra 19 rounds of magazines and some 31 rounds of extended mags. primarily for shooting range. I also have a 50 round drum mag. but that’s only for fun!
- Glock G19 Backup – Mounted in an ankle holster. It is slightly smaller.
I try to be prepared for anything. My friends are truly creative and can improvise in any situation. I feel safer when I am prepared.
