I bring the following to every explore:
My backpack (one of those tactical style so I can add/remove extra pouches and stuff as needed).
In my bag is:
-gloves (good heavy duty work gloves)
-small first aid kit (some Band-Aids, gauze, medical tape, alcohol pads)
-small snack (usually just a granola bar or a small bag of cheezits)
-extra chargers/cables to use in the car
-roll of toilet paper (mostly for blowing my nose as needed, I've got pretty bad allergies).
-fire starters (will explain below)
Other things I'll bring, which of course vary upon location:
-change of clothes (if I know I'll get wet or muddy)
-hard hat (some places I just feel more comfortable wearing one as a safety precaution)
Things I plan to add/improve
-high power glow sticks, in case I'm ever without my flashlight
-head lamp, to free up a hand
-upgrade first aid kit a little
-a couple MREs
On my person I carry:
-phone (duh, since it doubles as my camera)
-wallet (again, duh)
-pack of smokes/lighter (for smoking, and as a "peace offering" if I ever encounter an angry bum/squatter
-extra cash in case of an emergency (NOT a lot, usually just like $30)
-Folding knife (as a tool; it's not meant to be a weapon unless absolutely necessary)
Now, to explain the fire starters: I am by no means an arsonist, pyromaniac or anything of the sort. I think with a survival mentality (which should be obvious given most of what I carry), and if I'm ever in a situation where I'm trapped somewhere for any reason for an extended period, I want to make sure I can have a fire and keep warm.
Now, I know it doesn't necessarily count as "gear" but as far as attire goes, I wear jeans or cargo pants, steel toed boots, a long sleeve shirt or hoodie (depending on the weather maybe my Carhartt jacket as well), a hat and sunglasses.
