X-actly! I would like to see someone carry all that in their pockets all the time. Im deployed and I dont put that much in my pockets, too hard to walk and move dawg. Nice gear though.


It would have been nice to also see how they carry all this. Is it just in the pockets? Do they use a hostler a bag a fanny pack...


Very nice. I'll have to take a couple snaps of my EDC.

I'd like to get some more info on that TAD/ITS pouch!

All of these look very doable to me but then again, I prefer to keep things as light as possible. A lot of people will carry stuff on the belts or backpocket or maybe in cargo pants. I understand what you mean though and maybe a video explanation would be a nice addition to each post.


@Jake I can carry most of the stuff on the last pic with a pair of 5.11 Taclite Pros, they're a nice investment if you plan to EDC.
