What’s in My Pockets: Show us Your EDC for a Chance to Win!

by February 21, 2012 02/21/12

I’d like to start something new here on ITS today and start sharing all the EDC (Every Day Carry) photos we receive in our Forum here on ITS. We’re also going to turn it into a contest every few weeks and give away a $25 gift certificate to the ITS Store!

We’ll select an EDC based on only one criteria… Rule number one, always look good! Just kidding, we’ll pick it based on being a functional and realistic EDC. This means it actually has to be what you carry in your pockets, not in a bag (as much as we want to see photos of your Discreet Messenger Bag.) Of course this is totally left open to our interpretation and why we’d like a brief description of what you’re carrying too.

To enter, simply join our Forum (if you’re not a member already) and post  up your photo in this topic with a brief description of your EDC. We’ll look in on the submissions and pick someone every few weeks to win. The winner’s photo will be posted on the homepage of ITS Tactical along with the announcement. I’ll start things off this week and show everyone what’s in my pockets today. And yes, all this is really all in my pockets.

My EDC Breakdown

Be sure to post up your EDC photo here for your chance to win!

This is a load of crap. There's no way you're going to go to the market and bring all this junk with you.

5 shot revolver, keys, iphone, wallet and badge and I'm maxed out.

P6 is a good gun and it is affordable. My wife loves to shoot it.

I see you forgot to list Mr. Mitnick's business card?

Too bad they're effectively useless to actually pick locks with - ask me how I know. :/

I'd think important stuff like insurance policies, medical prescriptions and such to be at the very least on the USB drive. Preferably encrypted.

A phone is always key factor on any EDC, but a smart phone can make any EDC even better. Are there any apps out there that can be consider part of EDC? example I have a knot tying app on my iphone, I would certainly that part of my EDC as i do not practice all my knots every day. Also what kind of information do you have in the USB drive? how is that part of EDC?

What is the credit card-shaped metallic object with tools etched out of it (resting on top of the Nemesis Ti Card in the picture)? I didn't see it listed in the breakdown, curious as to what they are used for. Thanks, great article, my Amazon wishlist just grew by an order of magnitude.

I don't usually carry anything in my pockets... I lose too many things that way. :-( My EDC bag never leaves my reach when I'm out of the house, and is in one of two places in the apartment, both are on a way out. The only thing I carry on my person are my keys (paracord fob and flash drive included), a Timex compass/temp/tide watch on a paracord bracelet, a silicon "donate life" bracelet (I'm a transplant recipient, and donor) and a CRKT 1840CKTST (because I lost my Benchmade Stryker II Auto... see, I wasn't kidding), and the rare pocket change/reciept.

Doesn't seem overkill to me. If I can find time tomorrow I will post my setup on the forum.

If you think it's unnecessary enough to make a sarcastic remark then don't do it. Why do you care what other people with their time and energy? You don't wear a seatbelt because you expect to be in a wreck, it's a JIC. The most important thing that comes from filling our pockets with "unnecessary junk" is the feeling that we are more prepared and the warm sense of self-reliance we get from taking care of ourselves instead of whining or calling for help over something simple.

Thats a business card lock pick set. You can punch them out when you need them. It's super useful!

Nathan

Not sure how much more useful then the Bogota titans. They are multi-use where as the lock pick card set has a limited life expectancy. Nice set up altogether though, big ups : )
