I sat here for 5 minutes trying to think of what i should write as my signature, and this is the best i came up with.
Potions, Megas, Honey to make more, two Max Potions in case I cart, Whetstones, Energy Drinks, Paintballs, Dung bombs, a Power and Armor charm. That's about it, you don't need much else for the average hunt.
Book of Combos 1-5
I have OCD, so I close all my topics once I'm done with them.
I'm a Dual Swords user. Some of my item-carry choices are affected by my armor, which is currently as follows:
-Wroggi S (High-rank) set with Psychic decorations and a Psychic talisman. (Autotracker, Razor Sharp, Negate Poison, Speed Eating, Shakalaka Rally)*
*I also have a set specifically for Ceadeus and deep-water fights that has Endless Oxygen instead of Autotracker.
10 Mega Potion
2 Max Potion
1 Ancient Potion
10 Well-Done Steak
10 Dung Bomb
8 Tranq Bomb
This is my "bare minimum" for questing. If I'm going out into the Moga Woods for resources, I will also carry additional Trap Tools and Thunderbugs. The reason, btw, that I use the Wroggi armor is the Razor Sharp and the Negate Poison (Razor Sharp doubles the length of time it takes my dual swords to dull), and since there are a load of poisonous monsters (Rathian, Rathalos, all their color variations, Purple Ludroth, and a ton of others) the Negate Poison comes in incredibly handy. I am a master of removing Rathian tails because of this.
A Bible and spare underpants.
Items I always bring:
Combo Book 1
Combo Book 2
Mega Potion x10
Max Potion x2 (only for in case I cart)
Energy Drink x10
Whetstone x20 (I only restock this when I end a hunt with less than 10 left)
Dung Bomb x10 (This is the item I forget most often)
Hot/Cold Drink x10 (only if the hunting ground needs it)
Flash Bomb x5 (only against a Rath, it's less important for me against other monsters)
Sonic Bomb x10 (only against Diablos or Qurupeco, not quite as important for me against other monsters)
Herbal Medicine x10 (only if the monster has Poison)
Shock Trap x1 (only if I want to cap)
Pitfall Trap x1 (only if I want to cap Zinogre)
Tranq Bomb x8 (only if I want to cap)
I hate downtime so I fill my pouch to the max, makes it easier to replenish after a hunt (everything else gets grayed out)

To everyone who brings along a gazillion potions along with materials and combo books to make even more potions, what are earth are you doing each hunt that you need that much health recovery? Protip: Convert your mass potion space into space for useful things, like traps, tranqs, bombs, etc if you aren't already carrying them. It's like Doomsday Preppers in here. Personally I bring a couple pages of things.
10 Mega Pots - Usually use a couple here or there each quest.
2 Max Potions - On the offhand chance you space out and die, to max out health again.
3 Lifepowders - To heal teammates. If I'm saving their ass more than three times, I'm leaving.
The 4 charms - Self Explanatory.
Pitfall Trap - Self Explanatory.
Shock Trap - Self Explanatory.
2 LBB+ - Got tired of forgetting them when a gunner randomly breaks out sleep.
20 Whetstones - Restock these every 10 or so hunts.
8 Tranq Bombs - Because you shouldn't rely on others to capture things for you. Or someone wants to cap but didn't bring them themselves.
5 Flash Bombs - Useful on nearly every monster.
10 Dung Bombs - Useful primarily for shooing away unstable zone invades.
Paintballs - I just have a whole bunch on hand but only use them if I have Guru gemmed.
5 Dash Juice - Really easy to acquire, only use them when I DS though, sometimes Lance or SA.
5 Mega Pickaxe - For the rare occasion I spawn in a secret area.
It takes five seconds to add Herbal Medicine, Hot/Cold Drinks, or Sonic Bombs for the few monsters those are even useful on. If you run a lot of Trapmaster maybe bring some spare trap mats I guess.
