    besides what has been said before (first aid kit, gloves, emergency blanket, etc),
    a nice combo swiss army knife, here in the desert, something (hemostats) to pull the spines from the teddybear cactus that seem drawn to the boots.
    I always carry a couple tea bags, some caffeine and electrolyte packets to add to water just in case.
    binoculars which can double as a signaling device.
    sun screen, bug spray, life straw.
