Why these items? What use do they have in exploring? The hammer especially seems likely to get you arrested for burglary tools if you get searched
If caught in some places a hammer is going to be the least of your problems. When it comes to getting arrested and charged, you can get charged with having a comb as a burglary item if they really wanted to charge you with it. Also I'd rather be caught with a hammer than a knife or some of the tools people on this forum post they use. VASELINE
Vaseline is good for cuts and on your lips to stop them from being chapped or wind burned
Believe it or not it is also an insulator
It will also dislodge insects that breathe through their back (Such as ticks)
Particles get stuck to it before it gets on your skin.
Can prevent other insect and small spider bites
It's also soothing for dry hands
You can also mark walls with it as markers to find your way around Draw an arrow with it then cover it in dirt or whatever is on the ground
You can seal small bags with food in them. LATEX GLOVES
Extremely good for grip on certain things, they're back ups in case you need them in an emergency.
Good for markers to find your way back..Leave one on the ground facing a certain way.
No issues if you leave them behind HAMMER
A hammer has multiple uses (Remember you asked)AS A UTILITY:
get rid of any remaining glass in windows if you need to climb through
The hook part can be used to hold onto things
Attach a light to it and lower it with rope
Rusted hatches and latches
Propping open a door.
Using it to tap on walls for Morse code
Finding hollow or weak places on walls and door
good for checking for booby traps (Attach a rode to it and throw it at the area AS A WEAPON:
(This is a worst case scenario)
A lot of people talk about pepper spray, but unless you're in a full mask, pepper spray is just as bad for the user as it is the victim especially indoors. Furthermore pepper spray may not even work on an animal or person.
A hammer on the other hand can break bones. Even if someone is ramped up and not feeling any pain, they cannot hold anything if their hand is broken. If need be an animal can be killed with the claw part of it.
Attaching it to a rope and swinging it around will usually prevent anyone or any animal from being able to get too close.
I can say I found the hammer and it's not that big of a loss if I have to leave it behind.
