Space shuttle-era ACES (Advanced Crew Escape Suits) suits and many other pressure suits have small inner thigh pockets. What do astronauts carry in those pockets?

Only white straps peaking out show in some images. Is there a knife or cutter?

I was searching for another thing and accidentally found an image where the content was described. There is strap cutter and knife.

All times are CT (US)
