A sturdy walking stick that can easily be turned into a defensive stick. Or a whacking stick if it comes to it.
Flares, lots of those. With a flare gun. Not only will it help to have someone find you if you are injured, but it also helps to keep the animals away. And worse case scenario, you could shoot a flare at an attacking animal. It will scare it, but it’s similar as the rubber rounds cops use as non lethal management. Or you can just shoot it near to startle then away.
I also bring a few water purifying tablets. Better to be prepared, a lot of hikers die to dehydration once their water runs out, it will buy you come time. I keep a little altoid (sp) can with some dryer lint and matches. Easiest fire starter material I’ve found. I also carry rattle snake anti-venom kit, but I hike in the desert where there are more rattle snakes than cacti.
Your needs may be different depending on what environment you’re hiking in. Not familiar with the acronym you used.
