Right on, I basically have the same set up, my bag is designed as a three day get home bag. So if SHTF I have three days to get to my other gear.Swiss Army knives .
I have rescued a few women from edc'ing safety pins. I have recently added a diaper pin to my bag. My daughter(10) is very thin and tall. So her pants are all to big around the waist. Used it to tighten up her waist band.
