One of the most common items you can include in your escape and evasion kit is a blade. You can easily conceal a razor blade by sewing it into your clothing.
Another option is to have a multi-tool. It is much harder to conceal which means it will probably get taken if you are captured, but for disaster scenarios, it is very useful.
If you are captured there is a high chance you will be restrained and/or put in a locked room.
When restrained by things like rope, zip ties, and duct tape it is possible to escape without any tools. But if you are put in handcuffs you will need either a key or some lock picks or a shim to get out.
A lock pick set is also essential for opening locked doors that you can’t force open.
The most important tool for any escape, evasion, and survival situation is your mind. Even if you have all of the necessary tools on hand, if you don't know how to use them, you'll get nowhere.
Always start with the basics and work your way up. It always takes time to become proficient at something.
Knowing how to do things and being able to improvise gives you a significant advantage in terms of survival and escape.
A good escape and evasion kit is one that you can use once you are captured. That means you must be able to conceal it even after being searched. In order to do this you need to minimize what you have, so choose carefully.
And as stated before, you can have all the resources you want, but they are useless without knowledge.
