So I’m new to krx and this forum, I tried some searching on the forum but have had no good results. I’m interested in what y’all think are essentials to always have in your krx while out on the trail. I would like to keep the extra weight down if possible. What things have made your ride better? What would you never leave home without? I appreciate the input.

I tend to keep a little more than I need personally but everything I have has helped my riding group or been added because of something we needed. I got the tractor supply box and it all fits nicely plus some extra room. Aside from the beverage cooler I always have:

Tire repair kit/12 volt pump
Socket set
Open end wrench set
Screw drivers
Hammer
Pliers
Side cutters
Zip ties
Gorilla tape
Hose clamps
Extra bolts, screws, and fasteners
Fuses
Electrical tape
Quart of oil
16oz bottle of coolant
Toilet paper in a zip lock
Wet wipes
A couple mylar emergency blankets
First aid kit
Compass
A ratchet strap
Folding shovel
Hatchet
Scissor jack
Kinetic recovery rope
Tow strap
Soft shackles
Snatch block
Tree saver strap
Bug spray/sun screen combo
A couple bottles of water
Jerky or granola bars
A hat
Small Battery jump pack

I put a lot of it in separate plastic ammo cans in the box or in small tool bags.

There may be a few other things but that’s most of it. You’d be surprised how much of that has come in handy and how often. Sometimes we’ll be 20 miles from camp or a trail head with no one else around and without some of it you’re leaving a machine there or having a long wait for someone to get back.

I carry quite a bit of stuff but the one thing I always make sure I have and probably the thing I use most out of everything I carry is I have a 1/2 gallon multipurpose hand pump sprayer I fill with water or windshield wash an a small squeegie to clean the windshield

A spare belt is always a good thing to have, just in case. The belt is a wear item so eventually you are going to have to buy a new one. Might as well buy it now and carry it with you on the trail.

This is very helpful thank you for the advice.

Great list! #16 cannot be stressed enough, and if you don't have enough just move on to #17. If your really in trouble you could use a combination of #31 and #33 as a last resort!
That made me laugh. Well said.

After last trip I'm adding spare winch line and maybe even a come along. I had a long walk in the dark, through the snow, at 5 degrees after snapping a winch line on an easy pull after missing the trail in the snow.

I’ve been there before. Part of my recovery gear is an extra winch rope. It serves two purposes, i can throw it on the winch if need be or use it if as an extension for extra length. Between the winch, the extra rope, my tow straps. Kinetic rope, and tree savers I can get out 150 feet. Twice I needed it. Once for me to reach an anchor point and once to pull a flipped machine in a precarious position back over. Fortunately all that stuff packs up small
