    What brand, model is the best for a take-along cleaning kit for AR's?

    Good question, where are you going and what are you doing? I have one piece cleaning rods, multi piece cleaning rods, bore snakes and the Otis kits. For me, it depends on what I am doing/where I am going.

    Boresnake, and some extra lube. If you shoot more than that can handle you need to return to base more often :)

    Get a simple Otis kit and add a boresnake and chamber brush. Also check out the Multitasker Ultralight. They also make a full on multi tool too.

    On the field, OTIS or bore-snake work fine for quick wipe down the barrel.

    At home, bore-guide, chamber brush, coated rod, jag, brush, AR-vise block (holder) And you can add more kit down the road.
