    EDC = Every day carry

    I'm actually not all that interesting, but i'm thinking that some of you guys might be.

    My bag is actually empty 90% of the time apart from headphones and my hard drive, but they're not pictured.

    I'm sure you can figure out what everything else is.

    I do a pocket pat down before I leave the house and make sure I've got thsee five things: cellphone, 2 pens, knife, keys, wallet. Cellphone is always in my back left pocket, knife and pens in my carpenter's pocket and wallet/keys on back right.

    BornToLooze, I wanna party with YOU! You're pockets are WAY more interesting than mine.

    I got keys, phone, watch, wallet, and that's it. Though, I'm considering getting a locking lug nut for my new wheels, and I gotta figure out if I can hang it off my keys or something so I don't just leave it in the glove box.

    This is a cool idea for a thread. Granted, my contribution is pretty pedestrian. But cool idea nevertheless.

    Damn, living in England it's odd to even hear about guns let alone having one with you all the time. This thread has proven interesting already ;)

    Ya, I've read about some of the gun laws over there. The only one I like (I believe it's from England) is if you can buy a gun you can get a silencer no problem.

    But I've had someone try to mug me before, but if it would have been more than one guy it might not have gone so good. Plus now I have a wife and kids to worry about too.

    Basically a way to sum it up a lot better than I can:

    Foremost of all my consciousness - I feel kinda lost without it.
    And most often a cheap backpack that can be abused for anything, a pen, plus my keys ;) always a tap on the pocket, even though I know they just slipped in 20 secs before.. :ugh:
    Hardly ever my cellphone; I have no interest in making myself available 27/7, plus.. there's the GPS tracking; I'm very juicy about privacy..
    Used to very often have a knife with me, but dk law on such is total ass.

    Phone, wallet, keys, pants, and if I have my backpack then a DSLR and probably an iPad or laptop. And I try to have a guitar pick on me at all times, don't know when a duel might suddenly break out.

    Phone, wallet, sunglasses, and if i'm out with friends my e-cig. I used to carry a pocket knife, but for some reason every time I got a good knife it would get stolen. So I stopped carrying pocket knives.

    Phone (Galaxy S3), a pen of some sort (I write a lot at school/work), iPod, wallet, keys, watch on my wrist. Might start carrying a knife when my new one gets here.

    Phone, wallet, keys. No exception, nothing fancy. I have a small Swiss Army knife on my key chain I got from my late uncle, also keep a pick on there.

    If I'm going out then I include watch, zippo lighter, and sometimes cigarillos. Might start carrying my knife on me, too, but for now it just stays on my car. I never bothered to check what the laws for carrying a knife are in Ontario.

    If they are anything like Quebec, it's illegal.

    I used to carry one when I was a teenager, though. Nothing stops you from having one, until you're caught with it... :lol:

    Keys, wallet and and a pretty new but oldschool style phone (batteri for weeks, no mail, no facebook, camera, gps etc.., only sms and call and it is small and light!).

    I always travel by bicycle (because well, I live in Copenhagen, Denmark) I don't carry it but it is always with me.

    If carrying a backpack it usually always contains my laptop + power and some waterproof clothes (because of the bike thing).

    I am surprised by how many carry weapons (knives and guns) - it is totally illegal in Denmark. Even if you are allowed to carry weapons you must be able to prove that you are either on your way to hunting / sports or on your way home from said events. There is no carrying them around for fun.

    I carry my husky backpack ALL THE TIME.
    Inside: tourniquet or two, few military small medpacks, little rope, lighter, Swiss army knife, bottle of potassium permanganate, small bottle of gunpowder, painkillers, nasal snuff, small notebook and a pen.


    Pockets: cellphone, keys, wallet, random garbage
    Leatherman wave on my belt sheath. Used to carry a tactical folder knife, until lost it.
