Every day carry essentials are those things you keep with you, everyday, in order to increase your survival chances should the unthinkable happen.  The following is a good starting point and once you get used to keeping these items with you in your pants or jacket pockets, and also on your belt, you’ll begin to wonder why you ever went places without them.  Concealed is the way to go as there is no sense in letting others see what you have.

A fully charged cell phone, a small pocket flashlight with a minimum of 100 lumens, a folding knife, a neck knife, your preferred handgun of choice with a quality holster and spare ammo attached to a sturdy belt, a paracord bracelet, and miscellaneous first aid items.  These should be a good starting point.  As always know your local and state laws and abide accordingly.

Can your cell phone give away your location?  Yes it can.  Anytime it has a power source attached it can be tracked; which means simply turning it off is not enough.  If it has access to power, via a battery, as an example it can send and receive tracking data from nearby towers.  Your signal can be triangulated between towers which can then identify your position whether the cell phone is in use or not. Removing the battery is the only way to eliminate this tracking; however, once you re-insert the battery, it re-registers the network and your location can once again be revealed.
