A very useful item is a leather belt. Other than helping to keep your trousers up or providing something to hang your knife off. You can also use a leather belt in many other ways. As a lashing, perhaps an aid to carrying a bundle of firewood or even as a tornique.
I also use my leather belt as a strop to help me keep my knife as sharp as possible while away from home, spending precious time in the woods. Before I leave home I rub some polishing compound onto the inside of my belt. Not all belts are ideal for this task. You are best to use a strong, one piece leather belt which does not have a liner stitched into it, as when you strop your knife you will eventually wear the stitching away.

This one is very simple but I personally think quite effective. Especially when you’re going on a trip which is going to last a few days.
