I love using my Sharpie and electrical tape. The cotton cloth is a great idea - much better than wiping things down with your shirt!

1. Sharpie marker. It's surprising how often this gets used.
2. Spare batteries.
3. Electrical tape.
4. Audio recorder.
Instead of dedicated rain sleeves, I have used green garbage bags and electrical tape as a make-shift rain cover. Folds very flat and easily fits in whatever kit I am carrying. I never have to think about the extra weight. The bag is just taped into position and thus fits whatever configuration I am shooting with. This solution has handled very heavy rain situations without trouble. I also carry a white cotton cloth (hand towel size) for quick gear wipedowns for anything that gets a few splash drops.
