The Murse – A solution to always being prepared 24/7.
I Always have my spare set of clothes and boots along with a get home bag in the trunk of my car. I will be posting the contents of these another day. However, I was wondering if I need a “get to the car bag”? Or what if the car in un reachable? I have seen people’s EDC kits, but mostly those get jammed in your pockets. Here is my solution. I was thinking of a way to carry a few pieces of essential items in a small pouch in case I am unable to make it to the car trunk. This pouch is to be thrown in other day bags or to have within arms reach at all times, at the house or at the office. So I had the idea of the murse. I used a basic utility pouch which can also be attached to the get home bag via the palls webbing or to a belt. This ‘murse’ goes with me everywhere, (front seat of the car, gym bag, laptop bag, night stand). I have put a few items which fit my needs. They are as follows.
1x utility pouch
2x 15rd magazines
surefire x300 ultra weapon light
1x smoke grenade
Cold Steel Recon1 folding knife
1x quart size ziplock bag
1x 1.0 litre platypus water bladder
8x water tablets
2x AAA batteries
Frontier emergency water filter (30 gallons life span)
1x Altoids survival tin
– 8x water tablets
– Fenix E01 LED (1x AAA battery = 16hr @ 13 lumens)
– Suunto Mini Compass
– 2 Scalpel Blades
– 1 Jigsaw blade
– 6 waterproof matches
– matchbox striker
– 10ft of twine
– mini BIC lighter
– 4ft of 1″ duct tape
– 12 ft of fishing line
– 4x flyfishing flys
– bobby pin
– 1x large safety pin
– 1x small safety pin
– 1ft of aluminum foil
– 2x medium bandaid
– 1x large butterfly bandaid
– 2x small suture bandaid
– 1x small circle bandaid
– 2x alcohol prep pads
– 1x antibiotic ointment
– 1x burn relief pad
One other piece I need to get is 4 inches of bicycle inner tube to slide over around the outside of the tin. Hope this helps.

I have what my wife calls my ‘murse” too. it is a sling type bag that goes over one shoulder. Since I work in a place where we have a big sign reminding us of 18 U.S. Code § 930… no bang bang allowed…..September 3, 2014 at 5:35 pm #8965MaxKeymaster
I don’t have a murse, per se….but my wife and I carry a diaper bag (back pack) for the kids that has a few non-kid/non-bad guy friendly items in it….things like knives and spare mags. Not to mention the diapers, formula, water, wipes etc
But for a while, I did carry a murse (maxpediton jumbo versipack) that carried a very similar setup as yours, Buddy. It was nice to have, but became a little aggravating for EDC in the hot Texas summers. That’s why I migrated to several good pairs of cargo shorts and cut some items out.September 4, 2014 at 12:11 am #8984MaxKeymaster

Kind of a similar idea I’ve been working on for a sort of stripped down EE/Survival kit to augment my LBE.
I see I’m not the only fan of EG smokes…
May not fit in your kit, but they make a bigger version more like a real smoke- puts out double or so the volume of the small ones at twice the speed.
