Here's my gear.  It might seem like a lot to carry as first line EDC but it works well for me.  I wear Blackhawk or Propper tactical cargo pants and the Maxpedition pocket organizers work really well in the cargo pockets.  A lot of my gear is stowed in the pocket organizers.  I'm passable at operating a sewing machine and I've done some modifications to my pants to make them work better.  One of the most useful mods is sewing a few narrow pen/flashlight pockets into the rear pockets of the pants.  The tactical pants aren't the most "grey man" option but I've been wearing them for years and they never seem to attrack any attention.

Not pictured is my Iphone 4 in a LifeProof case since I used it to take the picture.

I'm not sure what the policy is regarding jackets in this contest, so this is a separate expanded entry.

Leatherman Surge

 

Left front pocket:

Keys, with 18" of braided paracord

 

Right front pocket:

Winchester clip knife

Pentel RSVP

Jarv nMotion bluetooth headphones

 

Hip pocket:

Bifold money clip

 

Wrists:

Stuhrling Original Aristocrat Executive II

Bracelet made from 12' of paracord

 

Neck:

Gerber Zip Blade

 

Jacket, outside pockets:

Mini-medical kit, including band-aids, ibuprofen, Pepto-bismol tablets, antihistamines, and antiseptic wipes, in a leather pouch made to fit that pocket.

Signal mirror

Sharpie

Mechanical pencil

Pad of Post-it notes

Mini sewing kit 

Gauze field dressing

 

The following items are held onto a piece of stiff leather via rubber bands to keep the pocket from appearing bulky:

Bic lighter wrapped in duct tape

Magnesium Fire starter

Cotton balls soaked in vaseline, made into packet via aluminum foil.  Takes sparks readily, burns for up to a minute.

LED keychain light

 

Jacket, inside pockets:

Emergency mylar blanket

For the last two I made a leather sheath/holster that perfectly fits the inside pocket, making sure both items stay secure.

I just realized that I misspelled something in my post yesterday.  I can't edit the post so I just wanted to clarify that my pants don't "attract" attention.  Not "attrack", though attracking something sounds like it might be cool.  Sorry, I'm OCD about spelling.

Alright...so here we go...

 

Keys: House keys are shackled by a master link onto a biner that came with a buck smidgen.  Car fob and key as well.  Removable tool ring that has a whistle, firesteel, p-38 can opener, led light, swisstech tool, and usb drive.

 

Springfield XDs .45ACP - rides in a no name kydex IWB holster.

 

Extra mag - rides in a snagmag holster.

 

Leatherman Wave - rides in a belt pouch.

 

Field and Stream tactical light (pretty impressed with this thing for a $10 light).

 

Pen - for writting and defense.  Not technically a tactical pen but the thing could be used as a boat anchor, so I think it will suffice and less obvious.

 

Gerber EAB Lite

 

Baseball Cap

 

Handcuff key

 

Piece of saw blade (cuff key and saw blade usually reside under a piece of electical tape on my belt)

 

Lock pick set

 

Kershaw Tremor

 

CRKT Minimalist Bowie  - worn around neck

 

Paracord bracelet

 

Decoder coin - I fidget...idol hands and all...

 

Zippo w/ Thunderbird Butane insert

 

Burt's Bees lip balm

 

HTC One V in an Otterbox

 

Wallet - All the usually plus a last ditch foldable knife, a bottle opener, and fresnel lens in a Storus money clip

 

Notepad

 

I think that does it for the pic.  Belt is just of the thick leather variety for now.  Normal dress is a button down with jeans.  Can't carry at work, so the pistol and mag reside elsewhere until I punch the clock.  Temperature is taking a nose dive soon, so I will be struting around in my winter LBE (jacket).  That would add some more options to my carry...

 

IMG_0656.jpg

 

Pencil

 

Pen

 

Some screw drivers

 

Kershaw Compound - can never have enough

 

Bottle opener - uh...can never have enough

 

SAK Tinker 84mm

 

Nail Clipper

 

Spare lip balm

 

Lighter with duct tape

 

Lil pink prophylactic case filled with protection that rivals my .45

 

Throw away wallet with fake cards, bandaids, more duct tape a few bills

 

And a spare light - Energizer tactical light.

 

So yea...thats about it. No worries, I know you're all like, "dude, thats too much stuff"...and I'm like "nuh uh" in my own ignorance is bliss kinda way.  But yea, it is...I know.  I tried just leaving stuff at home, and I feel naked (and so darn light on my feet, I fear the earth may lose its pull on me).  However I'm currently weighing options and budget to lighten the load and go a little more grey man without losing too many capabilities.  So...next time I post my EDC, you all might think I turned into some type of minimalist or something... :bs:

So here is my running EDC. About 40% of the time I am running with a full Gr1. The rest of the time this is what I am carrying. I will pretty much always be wearing normal gym shorts and a t-shirt. Here is the list:

  • Black 2in. webbing belt
  • 5.11 select carry pistol pouch
  • Black bandana (worn on wrist)
  • Burner phone that is in no way connected to me (usually held in hand)
  • ITS boo-boo kit (seperated into halves to better fit in pouch)
  • Bic lighter (in pouch)
  • Titanium wedding band (on finger)
  • 6ft. of 188lb. test kevlar line, from ITS urban kit (worn in left sock)
  • Metallic handcuff key (secured in right shoe)
  • Urban escape tool- handcuff shim/mini saw (secured on body)
  • Small water bottle (in pouch)
  • 2 packets of "GU" energy gels. Not shown because I at my last one this morning (in pouch)
  • 5.11 TMT plx 90 lumen pen light (on left hip secured with clip)
  • Pulsar waterproof watch
  • Gerber paraframe. A knife I do not mind getting destroyed by endless amounts of sweat (on right hip secured with clip)
  • Car key or house key depending on where I am running (secured on my right shoe by the laces)
  • A good pair of running shoes (on feet)

Hey Everyone,

   Corbs if you are out there, this is for you too. Does anyone carry an ESEE Folding knife for EDC?  Fixed blade is not ideal except for sandbox. Thoughts on ESEE folding knives? I here great things from guys who carry the fixed blade ESEE's but I would like to know if anyone has experience with the folding. Any input would be great.

Hey juicer, this thread is a little old and we try and keep old threads from coming back from the grave. A better thread to ask your question would be the one I linked below. You can repost your question there or if you see this Corbs, just post your answer there. Thanks gentlemen!
