I had a Maxpedition EDC pocket organizer approx six years ago, but incrementally rat-fucked its' contents for other packs. Thinking about putting one together again now that there's so many EDC-specific tools and accessories commercially available. Obviously, if you dudes have pictures, post them up!

 

So far I'm thinking of putting this stuff together:

 

- Maxpedition Pocket Organizer (unknown size yet)

- Leatherman Wave or Crunch with LM Bit Accessories

- WD-40 pen

- Bic Lighter, Bic Writing Pen

- Super Glue stick

- Field Notes (planned on getting Rite in the Rain notepad, but I'm in Southern California)

- Emergency space blanket

- Paracord-wrapped mini prybar

- A few Sharpie markers

- Flashlight (Maybe a Fenix E15 and spare batteries)

- Lip balm

- Band-Aids

- Small one-time use antibiotic ointment packets

- USB flashdrive with copies of important documents and medical history

Charge cable for your phone is always good.

I keep several chem lights handy all the time.  I've found whenever I needed one to mark something that is when I've left them on my PC.  So for that reason I've been keeping at least one in all of my kits.

I also like to keep a couple bandaids handy to cover cuts/scrapes/blisters, and I'm with Corbs on the USB charging cable for your phone with a small (Apple makes a really nice tiny one) 110v adapter.

 

Summary:

Chem lights (2 colors preferred)

Bandaids

USB cable and 110v adapter.

Do you have an example of something you've marked with a chem stick? I only ask because I've never been in a situation where I said "damn I really wish I had a chem stick right meow"

I haven't in day to day life, I consider it a last ditch bit of kit. When I want long lasting illumination or marking without ditching or depleting my flashlight. You can leave a cyalume somewhere without as much pain as a $100 flashlight.

Chemlights are great for emergency situations to illuminate small enclosures. Much safer than relying on candles/open flame in residential structures during post-earthquake power outages. They're inexpensive and disposable, so you don't have to worry about about losing them. There's also a ton of civilian applications. Personally, I've attached them to the back of my Camelbak reservoir packs when leading other ATVs/UTVs during low-light off roading. I've thrown a bunch into my swimming pool for night swimming. I've hung them from inside of tents when camping. I'll attach one to my dog's leash when I walk her at night.

Beaucoup named a couple good ones, I've used them to mark my kids... a funpark at night, every kids looks the same.

I've put them on my pack for late night hikes, lit a dangerous area while working at night, etc.

 

I like the idea of marking your car in a crowded lot though, not bad... not bad..

A very good idea indeed. I could've used that suggestion when I went to my county's fair last month. I spent twenty minutes looking for our vehicle haha.

Link not working, had to delete all the stuff in between ".com" and "/watch" to get this >>>

 

Anyway, I  used a Maxped E.D.C. Pocket Organizer (SKU: 0246 I think) to make a Geocache kit as a Christmas gift for my father a few years ago. The contents consisted of (if memory serves):

Quark AA^2 flashlight

ACR safety whistle

small hand mirror

pen and paper

tweezers

25' hank of paracord

battery case from Maxped Volta

 

I think I might get an E.D.C. or a couple Minis for the stuff I carry in my EDC bag since the pockets in it don't have elastic or any kind of organizational options.

Funny. I'm using the exact video as my platform too. What a small world.

LOL I have used them on Cub Scout "camp" trips! We give the scouts one color and the siblings a second color. The rule is the sibling color can never be alone and it's easy ident from a distance. 

 

The kids think it's a toy and they love it ! They make skinny, long one's w/ connectors that are breakaway "necklaces"...   Worked well many times...

 

Nice meow...

Youtube this guy called "MeZiillch". Hands-down some of the best and most detailed EDC/Organizer vids out there. This guy is ridiculously meticulous and prepared.
