Better to have and not need than need and not have. <-- This seems to be my philosophy for many things these days.
Agree with "Better to have and not need and then need and not have" philosophy.
I say carry what you feel most comforable with in a disasterous situation.
If that means a huge 3 day bag then do it.
If that means a small fanny pack or satchel then do it.
Ive modified my EDC and GHB over the past few years I started doing it.
I started off with a huge regular backpack with enough supplie for a week.
Now I just carry a smaller satchel type bag with still plenty of stuff to get me home.
My SHTF bag has changed over the years also to be more lighter and effective.
