Majority of NPCs carry small rucksacks, so it makes a lot of sense that they are storing the basic and less valuable gear at some secret spot.
These backpacks, with all their personal belongings, are only being transported from A to B, whenever the NPC wants to travel far.
This is a principle heavily inspired by real life elite military units that are stationed in the field,

Each personal stash belongs to an ingame NPC and has a background story.
