Turn out Your Pockets for a Chance to Win a $50 ITS Gift Certificate *UPDATE*

By The ITS Crew

Rob's EDC

Update: The contest is now closed. Scroll down to see the winning photo!

It’s time again for another “show what you carry” contest! What’s up for grabs? One lucky and well prepared individual will win a $50 Gift Certificate good for anything in the ITS Store.

Instead of posting a photo and description of your everyday carry in the Forum like our previous contests, to be eligible this time, you’ll need to add your EDC photo to the ITS Tactical EDC Flickr group.

Why share?

Emptying your pockets simply provides an inventory of what you’re carrying, allowing you to take a look at what you have at your disposal. Maybe these items never change but the majority of us are continuously modifying what we carry daily. Necessary items and minimalism don’t always go hand in hand and it often helps to have the input of others. Everyone you meet knows something that you don’t and while many of the items we carry are a matter of personal opinion, take a look at what someone else is using and see if it could work for you as well.

To kick things off, here’s what Rob carries just about every day:

Now that you get the idea, lay out your gear, take a photo and add your submission to the Flickr Group before the end of the month. If you need help adding your photos to the Flickr group, check out this tutorial in our Forum.
