So the "Hand Off" action seems pretty clear. You give one of the items you have equipped to another player(who has a survivor at the same location) and they will have to immediately equip the item on that survivor.
Now the "Request" action says that you can request an item card from another player and they will then "...give the requesting player an item card from their hand...". The requesting player then has to immediately play that card(and it can't be added to a crisis).
So does that mean that you cannot request an item that another player has equipped?
