What you are referring to is often called a 'Go Bag' or 'Bug Out Bag', and there are lots of good examples and lists out there if you feel like googling them. I'm sitting near mine right now!

Reminds me of that scene in Roger's Rangers (B&W Spencer Tracy movie) when that one guy was carrying around the head of an Indian in his pack and hiding it from the others.
