It can be a pain to carry all the stuff we “need” on a daily basis, but the weight and bulk can add up. If it becomes too much, we start looking for stuff to leave at home based on nothing in particular other than, “What do I use the least?” While this has some merit to it, maybe we should rethink the things we leave at home in terms of how critically important they could be in the rare situation we find ourselves needing them. If you’re not carrying a tourniquet on a daily basis, we hope we can convince you to change your mind.
