I bought a small belt and buckle and the everyday essentials kit. I then cannibalized a couple of edc wallet cards I wasn’t using. It’s tight but to the essentials kit I added a knife, compass, magnifying glass, micro light, can opener with screw tips, toothpick and tweezers 3 normal bandaids, 4 small bandaids, closure strips, 3 alcohol pads, 1 antibiotic cream packer, 3 packets of pain reliever, $20 bill and the trail markers that I bought afterwards.
I also bought afterwards the mini signal mirror for behind the buckle and a added a medical dog tag the has a couple of needles, a file and some tweezers.
I had to pack the gear twice. The first I just put stuff in and wore for a week. You don’t won’t hard or rigid things placed at the points of your hips. I repacked and now it’s comfortable. I wear it every day. I was thinking of putting a grommet on each end. I think the belt could hold my weight, if I needed to hang from it.
