I put this kind of kit into the "minute man" category.
A pile-o-gear ready and waiting to be grabbed at a moment's notice to deploy into an impromptu war zone(or neighborhood watch during SHTF).
Said pile-o-gear generally consists of a duty belt with sidearm holster and spare mags(and other amenities), a plate carrier/tac vest with comms and additional magazines for primary and secondary weaponry, durable clothing for expected environment, good boots, and 3-day assault bag with items for personal sustenance.
The "minute man" concept has fallen out of normal for a long time, but was recently reignited during the Bundy ranch standoff last year when folks from around the country geared up and headed to Nevada to hold back the feds from their land grab and vandalism.
The thought was, this could become more common, and "the people" should be ready. Hence, the minute man pile-o-gear became the new buzz topic.
While I would not wear such a belt daily, I do have one in my pile-o-gear.
