Compass with the ability to use the maps you brought in case of an emergency. Check one of the 10 essentials lists on the internet, it'll give you a good start.

+1 on the 10 essentials

I make my lists in terms of what I'll be doing and think of my campsite as a "house" with bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen.

My tarp, hammock, headlamp, spare clothing, pillow, camp stool and insulation make the "bedroom"

My stove, fuel, fire starting kit, cookware, food bag, knife, cutlery, water bottle, and water filtration/purification system are the "kitchen"

The "restroom" is my "poop kit", toiletries and such.

What's left is transportation to the site... backpack, shoes, trekking poles, map/compass, emergency kit including 1st aid kit, protection from the elements - rain gear, sun screen, hat, bug spray, and my cell phone, (more for the camera than anything as I prefer to be where I don't get service).

Not referring to "size" as in a shelter, the entire outdoors is the "space" when backpacking. When car camping some might bring a Porta potty and shelter but that wasn't what I meant.

I'm referring to that which I might need to use... something to dig a cat hole; toilet paper and or wet wipes; hand sanitizer; deodorant (or not); toothbrush...

Is this during warm weather, and bug season? If so, my preference is Permethrin treated clothing along with 20% Picaridin for any skin not covered by the treated clothing. I also like to treat my pack with the Permethrin. This has kept me from getting any bug bites for many years now even when hiking in major bug country, lot's of ticks and mosquitoes.

If I have not yet treated my clothng yet, I just use more 20% Picaridin, even spraying some on clothing, as it doesn't seem t hurt clothing or anything else like DEET does. Of course you could just stick with tried and true DEET, but I much prefer Picaridin, it works great but doesn't seem any where ear as unpleasant as DEET does. Plus, again, I don't hesitate to spray a bit on my clothing. But od course, unlike Permethrin treated clothing, it only last 4-6 hours, maybe 8 not sure.
