Camouflage, is used to prevent detection and or capture...not for use after the fact. I have yet to be seen and or caught, then again I don't go off screaming into empty buildings so I can hear my voice echo.
Breaking and Entering? They're tools for use in the event something catastrophic happened (i.e. partial building collapse) and I had to GTFO.
As far as breaking and entering, you've already committed the crime of Trespassing. Someone or some entity owns the building or property you're Urbexing on, meaning you're Trespassing. They could also toss a lot of pages out of the book at you if they wanted, Destruction of Private or Public Property, Theft, ect... So regardless of what you bring, your ass is already toast in the aspect of legality. (As far as trespassing on military property...go ahead and do it, that's when the law starts taking chunks out of your ass end).
As far as the survival kit and "lighter" it's for the same purpose as the tools, in the event of something catastrophic, purely prep items if "something bad" happened, not primary employable items.
Armor can be very useful, it's until you've been in a situation where something has actually stabbed you (i.e. falling rebar) or you've run into some unsavory characters who brandish a firearm, then it's an understandable piece to bring with. (I didn't see you all attacking the moron who mentioned bringing a firearm Urbexing...yeah armor is something just "oh so horrible and bad in appearance", but a firearm, yeah that doesn't send a bad message to the authorities if you're caught).
I imagine the majority of Urbexing on this forum isn't really Urbexing, but more so just trespassing, gigging about it while snapping some pictures so you can run and post it to a forum where everyone can giggle and share their stories about how they did the same thing, now that's ever so pro.
Yeah, Urban Spelunking is fun and amusing but anything "pro". As far as my use of "official designations" it's a habit that's dying hard.
Apparently I joined a forum of trolls and kiddies who think Urbexing is going outside and snapping pictures of pretty buildings and on occasion slipping over a fence to sneak around some ruins.
It's funny, the majority jumps my back because I made a detailed listning of my carry items, but the debate of what flashlight and respirator continues on unabated by what appears to be resident trolls and aficionados.
If you don't like my posts or what I carry, I offer this one piece of simplistic advice...blow me.
