    But no giant rubber mitts and plastic bags? What kind of an emergency serial killer ARE you?

    Kind of an old thread to bump but...
    Keys - car/house/mailbox - right front pocket
    Folding knife - Benchmade 940 or Spyderco ParaMilitary 2 - right front pocket
    Flash drive - SanDisk 32 GB USB 3.0 - right front pocket
    Sidearm - Glock 30 or 19 (both gen 4) 3:30 IWB
    Wallet - back left pocket - way too big!
    Multitool - Leatherman Wave w/ half bit kit in belt pouch at about 9:30
    Flashlight - Fenix PD35 - old 850 lumen model - front left pocket
    Keys - work/spare car door key - carabiner on first left belt loop
    Pen - Hinderer Investigator pen stainless steel - left breast pocket
    Phone - iPhone 6 in Rokform case - right breast pocket.

    I usually wear jeans, a cotton tee shirt, and flannel or work shirt over that, thus having breast pockets.

    I live in MT, where I can run into a meth head, a coyote, a grizzly bear, a moose or horses, or none of the above any day, the area where I work has a lot of livestock. A few weeks ago I had to run down the owner of two unidentified horses that were loose on our property. I open a lot of packages and do a lot of repair on A/V/L equipment, often in small dark corners, thus the leatherman and flashlight.

    Tell me about it. I can't even fit my phone in the front pocket of most of my jeans, but damn does my ass look nice. :cool:

    EDC: Phone(Sony Z3v), keys, wallet, pen, and a backpack on school days filled with textbooks and a small Asus netbook.

    No ravioli??

    Alberto, is that a 'domer in your wallet? If it is I wouldn't carry it around every day, or trust it.

    Add to that Schrade tactical combo pen, I like using a fountain pen but was fed up of any decent pen getting a broken clip etc in the line of work.

    :rofl: I'm beginning to think that I should have specified it's not my wallet, but that's precisely the joke. :lol:

    Also, Don, that's the secret to a nice ass, right after the gym and/or the proper set of genes. :lol:

    phone (droid razr)
    cigarettes (camel or die... *dies of cancer anyway*)
    pocket knife (nothing special to tactical)
    guitar pick (dava nylon)
    one hitter and some green stuff
    keys (more than your average janitor)

    I keep my wallet in the car witch just holds my ID and a few other random cards so I don't count that. I keep all my cash in my pocket in a gangster's roll.

    Also acid spit, dormant bubonic plague, all my regrets, and the souls of the damned. In jars. Just in case.

    Does any one know where I might find a leather or nylon EDC pocket organizer? Something along the lines of these:

    Not looking to spend too much on it. Maybe around $20-$30.

    I don't know about something like that, but most holster makers usually sell a flashlight or a magazine/flashlight pouch. Depending on what you want to put in it, you should be able to stretch the leather to make it fit.

    $20-$30 is a bit low for something like that, because it depends on what you carry, but you if you budge a bit on that budget I can (maybe) whip you something up. I do quite a bit of leather working.

    Gotta pay for custom.

    Not really if it's made from scrap leather just stitched together. Any way I actually ended up finding one like the top one off of a guy on Bladeforums for $20, so I achieved my goal.

    I mean, if someone is like hey "make this" and sends a pic or what they carry I'd make it for $15. But what I was (unsuccessfully) trying to express was if you were super particular about what ended up in your pocket, you gotta be a bit flexible. I goofed that admittedly.
