Prepping in the Pink – Medical Utility Scissors
My favorite scissors
I have listed two different sizes. The colors are also slightly different. The key though is utility and size. I have room for 6″ in some bags and up to 8″ in others. These handy scissors are designed for every medical issue they could imagine. EMTs have told me often these are their go to item to have with at all times. Seat belts and beyond these Prepping in the Pink – Medical Utility Scissors are perfect all hazard gear.

I always start with a great backpack like this one –
Ledge Sports Jem Hydration Pack – I prefer hydration packs to many others simply because water is at hand. Though they are smaller I use straps to “expand” them when needed. I find they hold enough typically for 3 days.
