I am quite sure that most of us EDC/cellphones. In fact these gadgets are so omnipresent that most of us don't bother including them in our EDC threads. Besides what are those of us that don't own a camera supposed to use to take pictures of the EDC if our smartphone is part of the lineup?  :ahhh

But as it happens I use two phones, the main smartphone and another cheaper cell phone for when I want to go light or don't want to damage the expensive smartphone. I carry the one you can see in the attached picture (sak included for scale, picture taken with my cellphone). I hear that it is quite popular with certain population with limited mobility in the UK and that they tend to be somewhat anal retentive about them...

To continue my monologue:

This is the wallet part of my edc, from left to right, top to bottom:

- I used to carry folded plastic bag for storing my smartphone in case of sky-sent-precipitation, but I upgraded it to a 1l whirlpool plastic bag intended for collecting laboratory samples. At least I think this is what it is, I actually bought it on Ebay form a guy that was selling it to survival kit builders. That was the only sane option, the other one being a 500 pc pack of them...  ::)

- Two aspirins. I wish they would be available in slimmer form for wallet carry...  :D

-Wallet mirror, not to keep myself looking good, as there is not much chance of that, but it helps me with my contact lenses from time to time. I never could get them in and out of my eyes without a mirror.

- A Fresnel lens, a piece of polarizing filter, and a piece of foil for magnetic field viewing I picked up while still in the university. The firs item gets some action, the second and the third not so much...  :ahhh

- I think that about 20 meters of kevlar thread.

- Some first aid items, iodine disinfection pads, some waterproof plasters, and forehead liquid crystal thermometer.

The green piece of spandex is a pouch everything in this picture, except for the plastic bag, resides in while not in use.

Not strictly EDC, but does anyone else thinks this also applies to the field of EDC:

Well, the pen is mightier than the sword, so it makes sense to dedicate one to fighting.  :twak:

I bought myself a new watch. It's vostok amphibia. It is a fun cheap watch from Russia.

While it is by no means fancy, it has a few nice technological tricks for circumventing the weaknesses of it's materials and price point. It uses acrylic glass in the shape of a dome, so that the water pressure deforms it, and pushes it tighter in to the edges of the case to make a tighter waterproof seal. The back is not mad of one piece but is actually a kind of a cover held in place by another screw on ring. This is to enable the cover to pres more tightly to the sintered rubber to again seal the watch tighter as you dive lower and the water pressure increases. All this makes the watch water resistant to 200 m. It also has a crown connected to the watch mechanism via a clutch. The clutch engages when you pull the crown far enough out, all this is supposed to make the watch more resistant to shocks, as they are not directly transmitted to the watch stem.

It cost around 60 €.

Of course, if you are not familiar with this watch, don't trust my information, as I am not a watch expert. And anyways there is a lot of reviews on the internet.  :D

It is the scuba dude. Although in real life it looks more green than blue to me. But then again I was never too good with colors...  ::)
