Hello, EDC enthusiasts! Today, we’re diving into a video from the popular YouTube channel, Wranglerstar, titled “Airplane Survival EDC Kit – TSA Compliant.” As the title suggests, this video focuses on creating an Everyday Carry kit that’s not only essential for survival but also compliant with TSA regulations. Given the recent concerns about earthquakes and other potential emergencies, having a kit like this when traveling is more relevant than ever.

Video Highlights & Commentary:

  1. The Context: Wranglerstar and his wife are preparing for a trip to VidCon in LA. With the recent earthquakes in mind, they felt the need to have a TSA-compliant bailout kit. This kit is designed to last for 48 hours and can be carried through TSA checkpoints without any issues.
  2. The Philosophy: In the event of a major earthquake or disaster, the primary goal is to find a safe way out of the affected urban area. Wranglerstar’s strategy involves heading to a marina, where there’s an abundance of fuel available on boats. With his background as a boat mechanic, he’s confident in his ability to start and operate any boat, making it a viable escape route.
  3. The Kit’s Categories: The EDC kit is divided into five main categories:
    • Water
    • Shelter
    • Food
    • Communications
    • Tools
  4. TSA Compliance: Wranglerstar spent considerable time on the TSA website to ensure that every item in the kit is compliant as of the video’s upload date. However, he wisely advises viewers to consider all items in the kit as “throwaway” in case they encounter any issues with TSA personnel.

Conclusion & Thoughts:

The video serves as a timely reminder of the importance of being prepared, especially when traveling. While the chances of encountering a major disaster during a trip are low, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Wranglerstar’s approach to the kit is both practical and innovative, particularly his idea of using boats as a potential escape route.

However, it’s essential to remember that TSA regulations can change, and what’s compliant today might not be tomorrow. Always double-check the current guidelines before traveling with any EDC kit.

Lastly, while the video provides a solid foundation, everyone’s needs and situations are different. It’s crucial to tailor your EDC kit to your specific requirements and comfort level.
