Post by: Gadget Guy on February 11, 2009, 03:09:18 AM

They are awesome!  A super bright LED, but I don't like the little recharging piece that comes with it. I lost mine, so I don't know what I'm going to do when the batteries die!  ::)  I guess I could buy another one and use the charger for both lights. Beside that, I highly recommend it!  :tu:

It's a leather coin bag. You squeeze it and it pops open to get to the coins. Mines kinda beat up but still working good.

My EDC setup stays pretty much the same other than switching out a knife, flashlight, and mulit-tool from time to time. I haven't changed my keychain in a while and have been carrying the modified Zebra F-701 pen for a long time. I can't seem to not carry the SureFire E2L because I love it's great balance between runtime, output, and  throwing ability with a really simple UI. Plus I like being able to clip it to my hat if need be.  I really like the Ronson jet lite lighter am happy with my choice of wallet. I only wish my RA Clicky would come back from repair so I could carry it. :( Here is another set up I been going to lately and had on me today.

I really like it. It really has an amazing quality beam for EDC use. I wish the pocket clip had a bezel up carry option. It would make a great headlamp if you could clip it to your hat bill. I have seen some guys have taken the bezel ring off and installed the clip there but for the life of me I can't get the darn thing off. >:(

I always wanted to get a tritium watch since to me any GID dotted is worthless, they need light to glow, and if I had light to make it glow I wouldn't need it to glow to begin with. Like marathon GSAR, but really expensive.  :(

Old photo I know (apologies) so please swap the locking Surge for a non locking Pocket Plier and a Spyderco UKPK.

(I just notice there is a lot here that has changed.  Give me a moment and I will get my current load)

I agree! Mine was 2 bucks at a shop we stopped in at once on an out of town bike trip. I had seen them before, but had not purchased one. For 2 dollars I couldn't resist. I have used it many times, and I really like it.


thassalottakit


I admit that it is a compulsion and not necessarily... uhm... 100% necessary... to walk around with all of that. I could leave some of the tools in the truck (I used to have a truck based full tool set for the job), but I find it easier just to walk in with whatever I may need on a job site or estimate. I am not asked to do any real involved install work anymore, just little tweaks and such.

I could ditch the "entertainment value" items, but I sat and rolled dice while waiting on a client just this past Wednesday, and I was almost sad when he arrived. It was pleasant to sit in the lobby and be ignored for a while without being bored.

The survival kit is the hardest stuff for me to ditch though, and while it really sees no daily use, it is the portion of my kit that tends to swell out of proportion to necessity if I allow it. I just can't shake the "what if" conversation in my head. If I dropped it out of the bag, that would be the day I get stranded out in the middle of nowhere somehow. That's how it goes in my addled brain anyway.

Things like the TP and the electronics are absolutely necessary.. I travel around for the job a lot, and music.. email... phone... GPS... and wipe... are things I could not do well without.

Honestly, I have found that when I remove all of the stuff I probably don't truly need, I still am left with far too much to pocket and belt carry comfortably. So a bag is needed even for the truly ED items. It all fits compactly into the bag and I have it on my shoulder anyway, so why not add some fun items and some OCD stuff to calm and pacify my preparedness urge?

 :D

I think the Jumbo is great, but too big even for me to EDC. If I buy a bigger bag so that I have space for daily incidentals and things I may pick up, I just wind up steadily filling it up over time. The Fatboy has just enough real estate to keep me happy, but also restrained.

The Smith's sharpener is great for the size, price, etc. But it truly is no substitute for a proper stone. Nice to have though when your blade slips and you flatten the edge. I did that the other day and the Smith's thingy had me back to sharp right there on the spot. That was nice.


You guys have me EDCing more of my small tools daily than I did before coming here though. This has been a good thing as I have needed them recently a lot more often, but... you are still a bunch of smurfs.  :D

I argee.  I have the same pocket sharpener and it's fantastic for "on-the-go" sharpening.

Is that the response you got when you read it aloud?  :D

Lame joke I know, but there's a story behind it.... not much of one- one of those "you had to be there" things.  An inmate needed to go to the hospital after a short "discussion" with another inmate, and he was a bit lightheaded from the experience.  While waiting for the paramedics we started to administer first aid and the inmate, in a shocking moment of clarity asked if that was the kit used for guys who were "all fakked ap?"

Nothing like a good head injury to help them see the light though- at least temporarily.

One screw I used to work with once told an inmate that he (the inmate) was so stupid, no wonder they caught him.  :D

Ok, here is what I EDC.  I have only included what I have on me all the time, not stuff that I have in my coat as well.  So here is what I have in my pockets.

(http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t41/benniehunts/IMG_1693.jpg)

In there is;

-Leatherman Knifeless Fuse - All tools lock but no blades so I can carry it at work.
-Victorinox Stag Safari Hunter - Has pretty much everything "sharp" on it that the Fuse doesn't have, so it is removed before I go into work.  Has small screwdriver in corkscrew.
-Large Sack-up - Stops my Safari Hunter getting full up with crap whilst it sits in my car.
-CRK Small Regular Sebenza - Is put on the side before I leave the house (sadly).  Is often swapped out for any of my other folders.
-Victorinox "Scholar" SAK - Modified by Neil (NKB).  It has no blades so can be carried at work and has a toothpick.
-58mm SAK sheath - Houses the Scholar and prevents anyone panicing if for any reason it slips out of my pocket.
-Motorolla Z8
-Fisher Space Pen - Fitted with black refill, so together with the Scholar I have 2 different colours.
-Atwood FunnyBone - Good tool to twin with pliers.
-Imco Triplex Lighter
-Fenix L2D Q5 - Left in high setting for blinding and far distance use.  Uses Eneloop batteries.
-ChapStick.
-Suunto Advisor - Has compass, altimeter, Barometer and is as tough as nails.
-Car keys.
-Damascus fob.
-Jetscream Whistle.
-Atwood Flat GasBaby - Nice and light for keyring carry and works well with the FunnyBone.
-Keysergeant.
-Uncle Bills Sliver Gripper - Great tweezers that were needed as Scholar had the toothpick.
-ARC-AAA Premium - Fitted with lithium battery which is brighter and lighter.  Has a good low beam so works well with the Fenix.
-House keys.
-Swisstech Utilikey - The only sharp thing I take to work.
-ResQMe.
-Sosakonline.com carabiner - handy to have and promotes the site.

This set up is working damn well.  :tu:

That is very annoyingly the only tool I have duplication of (apart from PE blades but I like the idea of having 2).  I suppose if I ever wanted myself and 4 of my mates to open a beer all at the same time I'm ready.  :D

I like that 58mm sheath as well :o How much bigger does it make the 58's feel?

It obviously adds bulk, but not a lot IMO. It's really well made as well.

Big step backward there, Benner!  That Sebenza is a pitiful substitute for the big Wenger Ranger that was in your last EDC pic. ;>

But seriously, I do nearly the same thing.

Whenever I carry the big Vic OH-GAK, I always miss having the nice, light, flipper-activated Boker Trance clipped into my right front pocket.  Plus I also carry a Gerber Clutch to have some plier capability.

Whenever I carry the Boker Trance, then I also carry a Vic Mechanic to replace the capabilities lost by not carrying the OH-GAK and the Clutch.

Decisions, decisions....

Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!

Post by: Shorty66 on July 05, 2009, 09:45:53 PM
For me it takes months to really change anything on my edc setup.
I do alot of planning though. As i know my plans will change every now and then anyway im often a bit slow with bringing them to life.
Those i do will last a long time (about 6 months  ;) ) though.

My last EDC kit was this:
(http://img148.imageshack.us/img148/346/smalltools1.jpg)
minus the green bag which holds all my washing equipment.

The three remaining tools are a Zebrlight H60 with Zipka-Headband, an HTC Tytn2 and a LM Charge TTi.
Not depictured: My wallet with the LM Bits and a Pencil
Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!
Post by: Woz on July 06, 2009, 07:33:09 AM
Boah, EDC setup is science!

Which tool to carry on  my EDC bag?
Additional SAK ?
Which bag, how big?
Wallet, Gadgets, Pens?
Light?

and, even worse, setup WITHOUT bag, pocket carry.

Do I wear cargo pants today? No? No minimalist EDC! (Suit? Nicer lightweight minimalist EDC)
Do I wear cargo pants today? Yes? So larger EDC!
Which tool? keychain, pocket size or full size?
Which folder? And do I carry a backup folder? (Spyderco Police AND Fällkniven U2 for example)
Pens? Notebook?
Wallet or just some money? (If I don not need cards, why carry them?)
Cellphone! Headphones?
Any space left?
Flashlight?
Flashlight!  :D
Lighter...

My BAG setup is pretty much the same every day, if I change something it is changed for a good reason. I just got a new, smaller bag, for I just needed my HUGE EDC bag I have for early spring/ fall/ warmer winter carry - room to carry a jacket or hoodie in case it gets colder.
My summer bag is much smaller. an Urban Tool SlotStar, containing wallet, Vic Rucksack, Vic Spirit, Pens, Sharpie, Moleskine Notebook, FAK, some goodies. Laptop when I need it.

My POCKET setup changes every day. Some things are with me very often (favourite knives, LM Juice), but nothing is save from staying at home when I pack my pockets in the morning. OK, my phone is save, I replace it every 2 years, but carry it every day in that time.

I´d love to see EDC bags, btw. Carrying a lot of stuff, keeping it lightweight and organized is science too!

This is my new edc set.
The pen is a retractable pencil i modded to be as small as possible. It takes 10 standard 0,7mm mines and writes on everything, even when wet.
The Zebralight H501 is equipped with a Petzl-Zipka-style retractable headband which still easily fits into my pocket.

First up is an exterior picture of my Bill's Custom Urban Wallet, showing how items are packed.

(http://i25.tinypic.com/90wrcz.jpg)

The contents, minus the removable credit card divider that holds my driver's license, medical insurance card, student ID, car insurance card, and co-pay card, plus cash; displayed items include a home-made writing pad, made from a single sheet of printer paper; a bandanna; a USB flash drive, that is sometimes rotated out with others; a Bic Mini lighter; a Zebra F-301 pen, which, personally, is a wonderful, inexpensive pen; and a mini widgy bar from County Comm.  The side zippered pocket also sometimes holds other items, depending on my needs.

(http://i30.tinypic.com/103afld.jpg)

Next up is my lovely onyx-scaled Explorer Plus.  Frankly, I must say I enjoy it more than the BSA Yeoman that I procured a couple days ago.  Yes, the Yeoman is smaller, but I prefer the dedicated can opener on the Explorer Plus.

(http://i30.tinypic.com/iykd2x.jpg)

This is followed up with other daily-carried items, namely, my key ring, typically carried with the amber carabiner, which also holds a Victorinox Manager - hopefully a Rambler soon - and a Fenix E01.  This is also shown with my current mobile, a Samsung Hue II, which is currently holding a 2GB MiniSD card.

(http://i31.tinypic.com/n5pqvl.jpg)

Pictured below are items that are carried often, but not on a daily basis; I only carry my car keys when needed, although they're almost always in my bag, nearby.  These are shown under my Leatherman Kick, which I still need to add a pocket clip to.

(http://i30.tinypic.com/2cwo3f5.jpg)

Just because I wanted to, I'll also include this picture, which shows my current preferred pens and mechanical pencils.  Shown from left to right:  two Zebra F-301 Compact pens; one Zebra F-301 pen; a Papermate Sharpwriter #2, a model of mechanical pencil I've used since secondary school; two Zebra M-301 mechanical pencils, which will replace the plethora of the Sharpwriter #2s I've used in the past, they're much less ecologically wasteful.  I write mostly in pen now, but it's still nice to have a decent mechanical pencil for writing stories and making changes on the fly.  Further along is a Unison Medium Pt pen, which are both good and bad.  I have used them for the past year, but I've noticed a drastic drop in their quality; they can be purchased in a tube of... ten? and I can recall at least one tube where they were /all/ duds; you get what you pay for. :/  Still, ones that can write are good for loaner pens; after one died in the middle of my plant biology notes, preparing for the final exam, I had had enough; the pen even had plenty of ink remaining in the ink tube. -_-  Anyway, the last pen on the top row is a Bic Pro that had seen better days.  It writes quite well, but I've not even used it since returning home.  The Fisher Bullet Space Pen on the bottom is a pen that I feel is mostly hype.  While I can use it to write at angles that would stop other ink, in general use, I dislike the quality of the writing ability.  Granted, I found it for free in Key West over vacation, so I can't complain. :D

[Edit:  I forgot the picture. XD]

You can pick them up quite easily and there's a great site you can get them from too...

They do ship worldwide but it's £10 to Oz I think - bit steep unless you're putting in a decent size order - Aussie group buy?!  ;)

I stumbled across Zebra pens (a F-301 for me) a while back whilst I was perusing the shelves of WHSmiths, a most excellent chain of stationers/bookshop/CDs/DVDs etc.

If I do carry something in my back pocket, at most, I would have a bandanna and home-made writing pad and my keys dangling into my rear pocket.  As it is, though, the Urban Wallet goes into my front left pocket, the Explorer Plus and cell phone into my front right pocket, keys plus carabiner clipped to belt loop, either free-hanging or dangled into right rear pocket, and if I carry the Kick that day, it could go into either my front left or front right pocket. :)

The only problem I'm having with the Urban Wallet right now is actually the credit card holder. ^^;  When I have it full of cards, the insert is too bulky. :/  I may have to go for a Big Skinny to slip into the Urban wallet to keep it slim. ^^;

LOL..Almost. :) Actually I forgot to put my keys and wallet in there too.  Key ring is one of those mechanic key ring things from county comm with a peanut lighter and one of those LED keychain lights.  There's also a small first aid kit that I made...it's in the bag.  I ride my bike everyday so I've also got a bike tool, pump and all that too.  Too much crap, but most of it gets used.  Thankfully, I haven't had to use the first aid kit yet.  knock on wood. haha

I think at least as far as my area's concerned, none of my local bike shops are Cannondale stockists :-\

This is my EDC gear, the stuff I always seem to be carrying around with me. I have 2 different set-ups, Daily and Work.

(http://i572.photobucket.com/albums/ss166/Shane769/DSC01186.jpg)

This is work, it includes truck and house keys on a Helly Hansen lanyard, Leatherman Skeletool CX, company logo folding knife, MEC Bandanna and my Fox wallet.

(http://i572.photobucket.com/albums/ss166/Shane769/DSC01181.jpg)

This is my daily EDC, the only difference being that the folding knife I use at work is replaced by my Gerber Paraframe II and sometimes my Victorinox SwissCard Lite is thrown in.

Yikes.  Okay:

(http://www.ssdiv.com/steveedc.jpg)

The stuff on the far right is somewhat discretionary ...  I don't carry it every single day; depends on the mission.

In no particular order:

*   Palm Treo 680 in Husky (Home Depot) holster with Sharpie and Gel Pen
*   ANSI blue-tint safety shades
*   Boker Subcomm
*   Modified Surge
*   Tin of Skoal Apple  (often with added lubricant from square bottle pictured in back)
*   Notebook with extra Sharpie
*   Vic USB drive and cute sheath
*   Starret tape measure
*   4" dial calipers
*   Custom Leather Trucker Wallet by Trapperman, Nickle Chain - holds everything - really useful - tends to leak money
     - Keyring
     - combo magnifier/thermometer/compass from EDC Depot
     - Gripper Tweezers (to my horror I just discovered they are missing!  :'( )
     - Blue capsule from EDC Depot (also missing, but I knew about that...)
     - Leatherman Radio Shack with the neat wire strippers
*    Fenix PD30
*    Bronco keys with Vic Belt Clip
*    Benchmade McHenry-Williams
*    Atkins Advantage bar circa 2006 (which is probably even more inedible than usual in anything but an absolute emergency)
*    Calibri Windproof/Waterproof Lighter ... vintage to say the least
*    1 liter of Industrial Solvent, Lynchburg Tennessee.   (Although I don't EDC the bottle; I am known to carry a large quantity in my person, especially in the evenings...    :drink:)


Yeah, I know.  I need to clean out my wallet, reduce the number of keys, replace the notebook with a nice Moleskines, find a better way to carry the notebook/tape measure/calipers, replace the missing items on my keychain, buy a new diet candy bar, and quit dipping tobacco and drinking.  Other than that, I'm ready for anything.  I think.  Bring it; we'll see!   :ahhh

My budget/travel EDC. $20 for FRN cara cara, $10 for vic driver. The $30 combo is, dare I say it, works almost if not just as well as $300 combo.  :o

(http://img79.imageshack.us/img79/5272/dscn2484.jpg)

I'm very impressed with quality of the cara cara. When byrd first came out I found their FRN models not well fitted, but this one is just as solid as my endura.

Looks great for travel - if everything is lost or stolen you're out only $30.

Kinda wish I'd have saved a couple of bucks and bought the FRN instead of the G10 Cara Cara.

The G10 version feels outrageously strong, but it is a little heavy for EDC.

Also fit and finish is a little rough on the G10 scales - not as nice as some of Byrd's FRN models.

I looked at the G10 version too, but after found out it's almost 2 oz heavier than FRN I decided against it. 5 oz is about my upper limit for pocket knives.

Just wish the FRN version didn't have the little cutouts and tacky ovals on the handle.

But, I kinda like the look of the little cutouts in the grips.

The ovals I'm not sure about.  Do they have some kind of logo or design inside them?

Oh well - aside from those tacky ovals it's a great knife in most other respects.

Especially when you consider its low price!

I think you should still talk to Bill; he makes /completely/ custom Urban Wallets, according to the buyer's wants.  He'll do you well and you can't help but be pleased with his work. :)

Post by: Nikos on August 02, 2009, 05:57:48 PM
I've been  thinking of a custom Urban Wallet for some time now, removing the back zipper, rearranging the slot positions/sizes, adding a velcro/snap button flap cover for the knife/gear slots, etc. However, since Bill's in the US and I'm a little bit away, I thought I'd try it out myself first. So I went out and got some waterproof cordura-like fabric (for free :D -- nothing like the real thing but equally thick and heavy), a ykk zipper (for the side pocket) and a couple of snap buttons and sewed them together by hand. Actually it turned out so well that I plan to get some real Cordura or some ripstop fabric and try it all over again. I'd post pics if I were sure it wouldn't violate some copyright/patent (Bill's filed for one afaik). You could give it a try yourself too. However, if you want top-notch quality and craftmanship, I'd suggest talking directly to Bill as well.

For something half the width of the UW you could also try one of those cell phone pouches/holsters with extra pockets for coins/keys. They go for around €15 around here and could probably do the job.

I like it a lot so far. Not heavy duty or hard use like your manix but great for EDC. Hollow grind is very sharp, but wood handle is more slippery than G10/FRN. The flipper is fun to play with as well.

So,  I've totally kicked it up a notch.  Here's my old EDC:

(http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z231/bluebadger88/misc/P1010019.jpg)

On the keychain is just a Wenger Clipper.  I vary tools between Farmer, Cybertimer, Skeletool in addition.


Now I have a totally new lineup!

That's a Green Alox Classic (great heads up American Lockpicker!), Fenix LD01 (Thanks Tim!) and my newest addition:  Atwood Sharktooth!

It is mah-valous!  I used it to open a few boxes and a coupla beers this evening.   The kydex sheath allows it to be pocket carried.

Edit to add:  Been enjoying the Juice with pocket clip too!

I notice that you carry a SS Parker.  How do you like it?  I know that some think of it as a fallback impact "tool", is that part of your thinking?  I sometimes carry one, I've liked their looks ever since I was a boy.  In mine I've replaced the Parker ink refill with a Fisher "space pen" refill.

Here is my current EDC set up (not including what I have in my Gearslinger).  The Sebenza is sadly swapped out for a Vic Stag Safari Hunter or my Fight'n Rooster Slippy when I have to be legal;

LOL.  :D

That set up is the best I have found, and really covers everything I could need with minimal tool duplication. 

That is a knifeless Fuse BTW and therefore has a file and no blade.

No the graduated standard and/or metric wrenches on the funnybone.  Just curious if they'll really turn a nut.

I have used it a couple of times actually (bottle opener sees far more use  :D) and was surprised how well it actually worked.  It'll never be able to undo anything really tight due to it's limited leverage, but it certainly helped me out and most importantly didn't feel like it was going to slip damaging the nut or the tool.  I think it compliments a plier based MT really well.

i haven't tried the can opener, but the other stuff works as well as can be expected.  the blade holds an edge fairly well, the bottle opener isn't the best in the world but is better than many i've tried; the flathead/prybar would be hard to NOT get right, and the wrench could be better but it's functional for light tasks.  i carry it in my phone holster as a last resort backup to my normal EDC.  
botton line: for the price it's a great multitool with no moving parts to break or lose -and advantage over the Swisscard(which i also like, BTW).

It's a silicon grip case on an Ipod Touch. I thought it was very slippery in it's original form. I was very afraid of dropping it.

How do you find the weight and the amount of jimping the thing has? And has is the caged ball lock? Is it axis smooth or hard to actuate?

I strongly recommend the Manix2. I really like it. It is on the heavy side but that's something I like about it. When you look at the pictures of it you may think that it has to much jimping but when you handle it all of it melts into your hand and it becomes a very comfortable knife to use. The caged ball lock is much stiffer than the axis lock but not so much that you can't flip the blade open and closed with ease.

I really like the silicon cases as you can put them on uneven surfaces and they stick or on a dash board etc. The only downsides are that they collect a lot of pocket lint and they are harder to get out of the pocket. I have one for the iPhone and I use it occasionally. I have a Otterbox case that I use more though!  :)

I had said I'd share a shot or two of my "home-brewed urban wallet", so here is what's been riding in my front right pocket for the last couple of months:

Front and back, closed:
(http://lh6.ggpht.com/__y895GSmcDc/SpUO3aNLEPI/AAAAAAAAAyo/YAyFrsYw8uw/s400/IMG_0003.JPG) (http://lh6.ggpht.com/__y895GSmcDc/SpUO35H94fI/AAAAAAAAAys/_nBU7sr9iWo/s400/IMG_0004.JPG)

Front and back, open:

Zipper side:

Other sides:

Made of water-proof tent fabric, a ykk zipper, and an afternoon of elbow grease. :D

The Maratac flashlight is a recent addition, replacing a Fenix L0D. Also the PocketWrench is sometimes replaced by a LM bit card and a Vic mini ratchet.

I'm also putting together a camo version made of ripstop cotton fabric from some older BDU pants I had lying around. That isn't waterproof but it turns out much slimmer and supple.

Thanks mate. If you do, please post a shot or two. That was my first major attempt at sewing anything (other than holes in socks and pockets ::)). FYI I plan to try putting the zipper on the top in its next incarnation so that I can open that section without removing the wallet from my pocket. The veclro flap did all the difference for me as I'm now not afraid of something falling out of the wallet when I sit in some deep sofa or similar (plus I can take it off my pocket without everyone taking glimpses of what I carry ;)).

But where's your MT?!  :ahhh

Two SAKs in there.  Maybe he doesn't need pliers everyday?
He probably doesn't have stuborn nasal hair like Ben then :D

I don't use pliers for that!  >:(

I use my Sliver grippers.  :D

Since when have SAKs not classed as MTs?  Old school MTs maybe but by definition.. :)


You use tweezers  ::)  :pok: Wuss.  I hear Mike uses a saw!  He's well 'ard :D

SAK's are not MT's (or folder's ey Tim  ;)) they are SAK's, a gorgeous item with it's own right to be classified on it's own.

Call 'em MT's? Pah!  :D

Sorry I had a Leatherman E4 on the keyring, which was not pictured.  I find I don't really need pliers everyday, and I do I'm unemployed I just take my lazy arse upstairs and get some pliers.  I have a PST and Skeletool in the car so I think I will be ok.  And I just rip the nasal hair out with my fingers.

I've been appalling at taking or uploading any pics recently so I thought I'd do a quick EDC roll call before I go to Ireland for a week. I'm going to help out as crew for a lady blacksmith friend at the Electric Picnic (http://www.electricpicnic.ie/music/) :)

Here what's in my pockitses (minus phone which was busy taking these dreadful photos!)

(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2577/3871200526_c3cd2fd6b2_b.jpg)


Contents of the Bill's Urban Wallet and the LM pouch are shown here:

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3440/3871200534_73b441d1ed_b.jpg)

The thing on the top left is a carabiner with a small gas lighter and LED. The back pouch in the first pic is for baccy.
Writing implements are a Zebra pen and pencil. Next to the pen is the 1/4" adapter for the PPP bits (in plastic tube above). The plastic bag with elastic bands round it is my ever evolving "fix it" kit - contains tape, safety pins, steristrips etc... and currently the tag from my dog Buster who I am still missing loads :(

The wooden SAK is one I modded and posted here ages ago - all whittling tools. The 58mm is a Rambler and I think that just about covers the bases for my trip! I also have my LD10 and various other bushcrafty things in my bag like a firesteel and a Bahco saw.

Sounds like the Irish sea crossing tomorrow is going to be bloody awful so I'll be needing some travelsickness pills too  :o

My EDC isn't all that interesting.

On holidays or my own time:

(http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r207/Chako_photo/IMG_1597small.jpg)

You get the standard leather wallet, a coin purse that I made for myself about 5 years ago (can't stand loose change in a pocket), either one of the Leathersaks shown which is just a Recruit, one of several watches, and my D ring with keys. I like to travel as light as possible.

At work:

(http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r207/Chako_photo/IMG_1599small.jpg)

When I am working, I tend to carry more. I like to wear a dark navy blue shop coat so that I can carry several pens and pencils in my breast pocket, I have a ton more keys on the D Ring...add about 14 to my above photograph. My laptop. This year, going to an ultra portable because all my classes are in different rooms and parts of the building. Note the absence of any sharp pointy objects. Can't wear something like that and tell the students they can't. I also have a few flash drives that I like to carry around my neck with lanyards.


Note, the only time I will wear an MT is if I am going into the bush or someplace where I anticipate the need for one for emergency purposes. Otherwise, I don't need one in the city or going to the local store, etc...

Knife gets changed around a lot, so does the multi. Multi is interchangable with a SAK.
I carry mints (usually Altoids) because my breath is stinky. :D
Sometimes a flashlight comes into play but that's usually in my bag, not on my person.

I need a real money clip, though. Happy now, jzmtllmjztmlmtlzltmlztj?

David, could you provide a little info on that Coleman Max?

Price, where purchased, output, and how you like it overall?

I'm always interested in learning about lights available from brick and mortar stores.  Even if I don't buy them myself, I can recommend the better ones as good deals to friends and family.

Thanks in advance.

I took this quick shot for my Welcome post.  This is what I typically carry when I'm wearing pants with cargo pockets.  I also have a bunch of EDC gear in my daypack, but I haven't taken pictures of that setup yet.

(http://dizos.com/miscellaneous/EDC/clutter.jpg)

Top Row
------------
Wallet: Spec Ops THE Wallet Jr. modded by replacing the outside ID window with a Cordura pocket and added an elastic pen loop for holding a Fisher bullet pen inside.  I've been carrying this for 4.5 years in my back pocket and it is still in good shape.

Nylon webbing with titanium D-Ring:  I had this made for me by a seamstress.  Slips onto my belt and dangles into my top left pocket.

iPhone: With Otterbox Defender case.  I've had this for about 9 months, definitely a cool gadget.

Bandanna:  I bought about 30 of these in Green and Brown for cheap and rotate them through my EDC.  Tons of uses.  I have been carrying bandannas for years.

ASP Key Defender:  This is a small canister of pepper spray.   I started carrying this fairly recently.  I like having chemical defenses as a tool to draw on "just in case". 

Eyeglasses case:  I've carried various glasses cases on me for a long time but they always wear out.  This is a new one made of stainless steel and seems pretty robust.  It is too large for my clip-ons, but I also keep cleaner spray, glasses strap, microfiber clothes and an eyeglass repair kit in there.  Rides in a cargo pocket.

Bottom Row
---------------
Keychain gadgets!  I'm a nut for titanium and small keychain gadgets. The large split rings are titanium as are most of the little clips attached to them.  Keyring 1, from L to R - ti bottle opener, tweezers, ti whistle, ti peanut lighter, ti pen, lanyard with ti retaining beads, Gerber nail clipper w/little blade, scissors and nail scaper/file.  Keyring 2, from L to R - tritium vial in ti housing, ti Draco flashlight, ti cannister holding spare Draco battery, keys...

Urban Wallet:  This goes in my front right pocket.  Holds a modified Strider PT (G10 scale replace by titanium and damasteel backspacer), modified Nitecore Ex10 (aluminum body replaced by titanium, ti tritium locator attached),  titanium Zippo with Z-Plus butane insert and last (but not least) a Leatherman S2 which I hope to get modded some day.

Closeup of Draco and battery can:

I would like to have the can opener removed to even out the sides, have a torx assembly replace the current pivot and replace the aluminum scales with titanium and add a clip.  I'm in an apartment in NYC so I will be lucky if I can talk some poor soul into making it for me.

How much do they go for generally?

I really wish knuckles were legal (or at the least not illegal)...punching is such a natural reflex it would be a formidable tool for anyone.

Right around $100. It's a nice solid piece of titanium. Oh... what are you talking about? It's a bottle opener!  ;)

I notice there is no keyring on the E01. Do you just carry it loose? Actually, the HA on the E01 looks awfully undamaged for an EDC...  :D

You're right, there is something else. A magazine holster (quite strong and cheap, around €9) in which I carry my Spirit, the little Fenix, a corkscrew (I'm italian, I come across wine bottles very often  :D) and a spare battery. That's why the flashlight looks undamaged, although you may notice a few scratches on the head. Well... it was my teeth!  :P

leatherman wave in the nylon sheath with a solitare mag in it
skeletool that lives in the bag at home but in my pocket while out
cree LED single AA cell light (thanks zack!)

Big Skinny Thin Card Holder With Zippered Pocket (holding the Micro Widgy, Lee Valley Pocket Screwdriver, and Sandisk 4GB Cruzer Micro USB drive)
Victorinox Explorer Plus
Alltel Samsung Hue II (with 2GB Micro SD card)

Damn... your postal system sounds to be a pain in the rear.
I love USPS! And it's retarded that companies don't take advantage of them. I was trying to get a $20 knife and the shipping was $11! In the US! That's ridonkulous! I shot them an email asking if they could use cheaper shipping (I.E. fscking $4.95 FLAT RATE USPS SHIPPING)... they refused.

Funny thing is, I bet that's how they send it, anyway... wrapped in newspaper. Expensive $6 newspaper.

love that native :tu: is it the light or is a purple FRN one?
The slabs are indeed purple FRN. Didn't think I would like a native but I'm loving this one.


yeah man, it looks awsome :tu:

Why sort of?
During the time when the forum knives went live I was out of the country and didn't have access to the internet for a bit. When I finally did I went right to the Spyderco forum and found I had missed the last forum knife by about 6 hours. Instead of crying like a baby like a couple of the people I took it in good stride and was happy for the people that got one. The next day I got a pm from a Spyderco employee asking if I still wanted one which of course I said I did. Now I say "sort of" because this was not part of the original 300 that were sold. I don't know how many more than 300 they made and I don't know why the Spyderco employee contacted me but I was fortunate enough to get one.

On a side note. I did have to pay $11.16 tax on top of the knife and shipping but for a limited edition forum knife with S30V steel I think it was well worth it. I never thought the ergo of the native would fit my hand well but it's turning out to be one of my favourite Spyderco's.

Hehe, maybe they didn't put all 300 for sale and kept a couple of things like this? :D I never liked the original native because of the swedge grind, but full flat looks better. I'm not a collector thou so the twice price over walmart native with no fundamental improvement didn't seem worth it to me.

Sorry for the fuzzy pictures; I need to take them during the daytime. ~_~

My current EDC:

(http://i38.tinypic.com/rszya9.jpg)

Leather Plus Sheath, carabiner with keys plus Victorinox Rambler, Fenix E01, and Uncle Bill's Sliver Grippers, Ratchet and extension bar, Big Skinny Thin Card Wallet with Zippered Pocket which contains the County Comm Micro Widgy Bar, Lee Valley Pocket Screwdriver, and a Sandisk 4GB Cruzer Micro, Alltel Samsung Hue II with 2GB Micro SD card, Victorinox Explorer Plus, and a Victorinox SwissTool Spirit X. :)

Tomorrow's EDC:

(http://i38.tinypic.com/9k7ym8.jpg)

Same as above, but a Leatherman Squirt P4 and Victorinox Cadet replacing the Spirit X and Explorer Plus above.  I feel like going a bit more minimalist tomorrow. :)

Just the pocket hardware stuff, no turning my backpack inside out (yet)  ;)
(http://s44.radikal.ru/i104/0910/95/4e150b2cdbb2.jpg)
So, left pocket carabiner - 8 Gb flash drive, Princetown Tec LED, Cricket lighter and black electrician tape, Swisstech 6-in-1 (when I'm not carrying a Wave), Spyderco Ladybug on a quick-release.
Right pocket - trying to accustom myself to carrying a Wenger New Ranger, not one-handed (indeed, I refer to it as "two-handed pocketknife"  :) ) on a dangler clip with a spinner. Sometimes replaced by my old Vic Nomad clip mod.

I work at night and usually get off around midnight then have a 30min drive home. So I like to have some type of hands free lighting sorce. Just in case.  Before I carryed a RA Clicky because I could clip it to my hat. So far the SF has worked out good in my EDC setup.

I really like it. It really has an amazing quality beam for EDC use. I wish the pocket clip had a bezel up carry option. It would make a great headlamp if you could clip it to your hat bill. I have seen some guys have taken the bezel ring off and installed the clip there but for the life of me I can't get the darn thing off. >:(

Sorry, I know this is old, but I'm trying to catch up.

Prime, regarding the Novatac bezel, have you tried the mouse pad method?

bummer dude.  :-\

BTW, I'm with you on the bezel-up carry, to allow for wearing on a hat.  However, I've tried the clip that way on my 120 and I don't like it.  It doesn't seem secure with just a couple of threads screwed into the barrel, and I don't think it seals around the lens (window) as well with it there.

Thats good to know that the clip doesn't work well that way. The RA Clicky that I carryed may have a huge ugly looking clip but it worked great clipped to my hat.

Pliers are too dang heavy.  :P I have a fuse in my bag but only count what's on my person as EDC. The eagletac works as well as any other lights, nothing exceptional but nothing too bad. Only thing I don't like is the switch, it's kinda mushy and needs to be pushed in a bit before engaging momentary.

Wave works great, a little too effective in fact and take a bit of getting used to. To take it out closed I need to intentionally pull it up and forward away from pocket seam at the same time, or it'll either snap open or almost open. That's why I added the opinel so I can use that in public when I don't need one hand open. It works pretty well as bottle opener too. The handle color is sort of gray/green and hides well against jeans.

No really.  The Fuse is knifeless and so is pretty much one of the only tools I can take to work, the Surefire has both incan and LED which is pretty much unique and needed with my eyes, the Gasbaby has always been the atwood for me, the Sebenza has been the folder since I got it (although I do change it around as I said above), the FunnyBone has been continually EDC's for months,  I have had that watch for nearly 5 years, the lighter is as solid and reliable as they come, I finally have the wallet I need to carry all I need, and my keys have all I could ever want on them (although I am still not sold on the Utilikey).  Oh, my phone is upgraded annually so that doesn't count.

I'm not saying that I won't chop and change it around, but put it this way, I'm not looking to replace anything in that above pic apart from the pen and the carabiner, and that is a rarity for me.

It's taken me ages to get it to the stage where I don't have a lot of tool duplication.  :D

Two of those are MT, blades in those are just along for the ride and never get used.

Actually I just couldn't figure out how to carry a plier comfortably since I don't do belt carry. I'm looking at the spyderench right now but that turned out to be bigger than expected, and most people think it's more gimmicky than useful.

Because personally (and greatly unpopularly here I know) I think the refills are a bit poo.  I know I currently have issues with my specific pen, but I find the refills make ink bogies all the sodding time and for a pen that is meant to write on everything, actually writes on less surfaces than a standard parker.  I don't think they write particularly nicely either.

I also just fancy something else as I have carried that specific pen for bloody years (got it from my Nan for christmas years ago) and like the tactical styled pens.

That's my experience with ALL the ball point pens I tried, Parker, Zebra, they all do it. The ink build up on top of tip then make big blobs on paper, it's part of the reason I migrated back to fountain pen.

Post by: Benner on October 16, 2009, 07:44:06 PM
I have only had that with the Fisher ones.  My last Parker was absolutely fine.

To actually write with, I prefer fountain pens and find that they make me write neater.  I used to have problems with them leaking in my pockets though that put me off.

I have been drooling over these though http://www.cultpens.com/acatalog/Pilot_Capless_Fountain_Pen.html

The one I'm using? It's a cheap little Reform 1745, there's a review here (http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=47155). I bought it on fountainpennetwork forum from a guy with a bunch of new old stock but I think he's out.

Wait guess what, there's a guy sellling it in UK. http://cgi.ebay.ca/New-Old-Stock-Reform-1745-Piston-Filler-Fountain-Pen_W0QQitemZ200391068843QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Home_Garden_PensPencils_WritingEquipment_SM?hash=item2ea83d0cab

I have a few fountain pens(parker) that were my grandad's however for every day carry I prefer ball points or roller balls. Just a personal preference.  :)

I like fountain pens but as a south paw, they really aren't a clever idea for me!

I end up with a trail of ink all over the place and a very inky hand  :-[

If my Rambler project works, the Classic and Scrap tool will come off, to be replaced with the Rambler (Phillips and standard drivers, knife and file).  The Atwood and JDR, they're gonna stay.

The three I have are my Fenix L0D, Eagletac P10A and a Maglite Solitaire that stays in my emergency/repair tin.  So really it's two practical lights and a battery holder. ;)

Look, I still like the Solitaire and it has served me well in the past but, I admit, that was before LED's became practical.  It has also saved my bacon when my daughter wants a torch to play with but doesn't have her own with her.

You can never say the Solitaire is bright, but it does still manage to put some light out the front.  If only very little. :) If only Maglite would update it and give us an LED version as they have done with the rest of the range.  It wouldn't even have to be a super-bright torch but something equivalent to the E01 and I would buy it. :-\

I've given my old one to my boy too, as there, if nothing else, robust :)

Plus it is a good torch to learn on imo :)

In here we have;

Chris Reeve small regular Sebenza (my favourite folder.  Due to legal reasons I often carry a Buck Stockman 301)
Surefire A2 Aviator (modded with SJLED's and has the HO Lumens factory bulb)
Leatherman Knifeless Fuse (has file instead of blade for those that don't know)
Atwood G2 Mini GasBaby (steel)
Atwood FunnyBone (steel)
Bills Urban wallet
Dave22 swiss cross (steel)
O2 XDA phone
Wenger Chrono watch
sosakonline.com caribiner
Various house and car keys
ResQMe
Acme Tornado whistle
ARC-P AAA torch
Key sergeant
Uncle Bills Sliver Grippers
Swisstech Utilikey
Lamy Scribble Ballpoint
Brass Zippo (frequently swapped around with other vintage lighters)

Very little tool duplication (the way I like it) and covers all I need it to.  :tu:

Cards in middle pocket, cash is back one.  Fuse and FunnyBone in the front 2.  All fits in there pretty nicely without it all being too squashed up.

For the most part I wear the same watch every day, a M.H. Bertucci titanium field watch. I switch between a couple of old Case stockman slipjoints but am hoping to add a Victorinox Pioneer as well. Most days I also have a Leatherman Juice in my left front pocket. It is nice but somewhat light duty. I plan to supplant it with a Victorinox Spirit X soon (carried in the belt sheath). In addition to the slipjoints, I also carry a Charles May FireAnt pocket sized sheath blade. I also have a handkerchief in my back pocket always. My phone is a Samsung Eternity. Besides my Cross Townsend pen, I also have a Maratac AAA torch in my shirt pocket. Lastly, I haven't used a regular wallet in a couple of years. Instead I have a titanium credit card holder made by Jens Vox with a couple of id cards and credit cards in it.

I appreciate the comments from y'all.

As with probably a lot of folks, my EDC gear has evolved and changed over years. I still remember carrying my 1st generation Wave in the nylon sheath when they came out along with a Victorinox Climber all those years ago and then came the dark days with the tacticool gear and now things have leaned back to the classics again. I am pretty happy with my setup now but I expect minor changes are inevitable. The Maratac is a prime example of a high value EDC gear replacing another as it recently bumped my higher priced Surefire L1 LumaMax out of the pocket.

Speaking of which, does anyone know if there is actually any difference in the output between the iTP and the Maratac AAA's? They use different bin LEDs but is it actually true that the former does 80lm and the latter 60lm, or is it that one of these is OTF lumens and the other isn't?

You are correct! It has been over a year now since I've had it so I did forget and mix up the names of these knife makers. Thanks for the correction.

For some reason, I don't have an option to modify my original post to correct that plus to add the Spirit X that I received today and have on my belt now.

Today's dump:

Big Skinny Zippered Thin Card Holder with IDs, cards, (literally) $1 USD (it takes an investment of capital to purchase stock XD), Lee Valley Pocket Screwdriver, County Comm Micro Widgy, Sandisk 2GB (or is it 4GB?) USB drive.
Bandanna, three pieces of paper - containing, among other things, orders, stock to purchase, etc. - Maratac AAA, SwissTool Spirit X, onyx Explorer Plus
Alltel Samsung Hue II with 2GB MicroSD card, Rambler, Bill's Sliver Grippers, Fenix E01 (hiding keys), and a fauxton

The only items not pictured that I also have on me are a leather sheath for the Spirit X and my new metal Victorinox belt hanger, which is dangling my keys into my front right pocket. :)

My dad used to carry an oval shaped rubber "coin purse" that had a slit over the top but I am sure if he saw your choice, he would have like that. I presume that is what it is?

I barely ever carry cash much less coinage which is why I just carry a credit card holder (no wallet) myself.

Yea it's a "coin purse". It's held up pretty well. I have been carrying it for a while now. I'm thinking of getting a black one so I can call it a "Tactical coin holder" ::)

(http://www.abload.de/img/dsc00292yuzy.jpg) (http://www.abload.de/image.php?img=dsc00292yuzy.jpg)

The iPhone is he same as always, but I do not carry a light (OK, there´s a Fenix E01 on my keys, not on the picture), no wallet (but a Cricket full serrated serving as a money clip), fountain pen (Mini Pilot Petit1) instead of a ballpoint and a Swiss+Tech tool where I normally carry a LM Juice. The SOG Access Card 2 arrived today (just in time), before that I carried a Fällkniven U2 for formal clothing EDC.

Fishermans Friends are nice and perfect for winter EDC - they really help. I like Grether´s Pastilles too, they are fruity without mint. So I carry both and decide if I like minty or fruity throat-friendly EDC ;)

BTW: Fishermans Friends Lemon Mint... Hmmmmmm :gimme:

Flavored Fisherman's friends?!?!?! OH MY GOD!!! The sun just got brighter, the clouds just became fluffier, air just got a little more sweet! Thank you for makin' my day!!! I love them nasty, menthol tastin' smurfs, but have only ever found the origional flavor. Now don't get me wrong they work like a charm, but taste like a bag of buttholes. *

Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!
Post by: Woz on November 13, 2009, 10:04:37 PM
Oh, there are quite some flavors available:

MINT (classic)
Mint sugarfree
Apple and Cinnamon
Salmiakk
Citrus
Anisseed
Mandarin
Extra Strong
Lemon
Blackcurrant
Cherry
Original Extra Strong
And in some countries Liquorice

I like most of them, but Salmiakk, Liquorice and Anisseed are distgusting imho...

I'm unable to locate the wifey's camera at present, so if you don't mind Lockpicker? And for Rex & Corrugated, I get mine at Walmart. Seems to be more at the old style little crappy Walmarts more than the Super variety, but I'll check all the Walmarts I visit here in my area when I make my rounds. When I pick 'em up, they're always marked $1.00 btw, if you see 'em & they're more than that, just wait, they'll come down shortly.

Heres the Fisherman's friend tin and an Altoids tin(for comparison.)

(http://i577.photobucket.com/albums/ss218/americanlockpicker/IMGP1239.jpg)

Heres a close up.

(http://i577.photobucket.com/albums/ss218/americanlockpicker/IMGP1240.jpg)

Made in England, as long as it is I'll still buy it.

(http://i577.photobucket.com/albums/ss218/americanlockpicker/IMGP1241.jpg)

Heres the label, I wish I could have got it all it one picture but at least its readable this way.

(http://i577.photobucket.com/albums/ss218/americanlockpicker/IMGP1242.jpg)

Label continued.

(http://i577.photobucket.com/albums/ss218/americanlockpicker/IMGP1246.jpg)

An Altoids tin. Seeing as its no longer made in Great Britain I guess this is a collecter's item now.

(http://i577.photobucket.com/albums/ss218/americanlockpicker/IMGP1247.jpg)

Also I should note inside the FF tin is a pouch containing the lozenges. I've seen just the pouches for sale but not very often.

Full dump from today:

(http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z231/bluebadger88/misc/EDC/P1010017.jpg)

List of goodies:

1. HTC Touchpro
2. Wallet filled with debt
3. Stainless steel Sharpie (in the cutting room today)
4. Cybertimer 41 in its Leatherman sheath
5. Keys with Atwood Wildcard, JDR Pyrhana, Vic Rambler and Fenix LD01
6. Colobri Lighter (In Timbuk2 bag)
7.  Leatherman Juice CS4 (In Timbuk2 bag)

All resting on Timbuk2 bag

I'm thinking the Juice is gonna be replaced with a Wave.  The compact size of the Juice isn't an advantage in the bag, so might as well have pliers in the BigDog range.  :D

I think I have figured out what works best for me. My Egghead is lobster clawed to my E01. A lanyard comes off of the E01 so when I can carry a blade, I can switch out the Egghead for my Minichamp, and still have the lanyard-flashlight-SAK system. I also carry a wallet, two Pentel Side FX 0.7mm in black (the greatest pencils on Earth, indestructible, giant eraser and side click), a pack of sugarless gum (I vary the flavor), and my car key. I carry a Motozine ZN5, which is not in the picture because it is my camera. (It has an excellent camera.)

They are Benner, smooth inkflow, writes always and everywhere and is pretty inexpensive. It is one of my 5 All-Time-Favourite pen.

My Top 5 (Now, can change)

ZEBRA F-301 - best ballpoint pen EVER
Uniball Powertank - pressurized pen for 3 bucks! writes great
Pilot Petit1 fountain pens - or better FUNtain pens, perfect little mini fountain pens, cute and perfect for EDC. Inexpensive too.
TomBow AirPress - as mentioned above
Pilot G2 (min and regular) - just great for EDC

Oh, and Sharpies, but they are more a Multitool than a pen ;)

Seriously, it's not that bad. Most of the stuff is pretty lightweight, the main bulk of it comes from the bag itself - the XRay has two metal stays that are 3/8" thick! :o That is, unfortunately, the price you pay for getting Kifaru build quality. My main motivation for that load out is that I motorcycle or cycle 9 miles to work, in an area that is prone to flooding. I've had to walk home before now and I just want to make it as easy as I can.

Oh, and I like shiny things and want to have them with me all the time. :D

If you're looking for some weight savings in your pack, you could look at a few of the packs from Cold Cold World (http://www.coldcoldworldpacks.com/intro.htm), Mystery Ranch (http://www.mysteryranch.com/site/index.html), Black Diamond (http://www.blackdiamondequipment.com/en-us/shop/climb/climbing-packs) or Cilogear (http://www.cilogear.com/)

On motorcycle or bicycle, I really like my Timbuk2 messenger bag (http://www.timbuk2.com/tb2/products/home).  They come in assorted sizes.

Thanks!  That's my cat Orangina.  She was the first orange tabby on the farm.  Orange Gina  :D

(We now have 3 orange male tabbies who are quite the little pride  ::)   :))

Not a big cat fan, but that's funny!!!

Very nice.  I am in talks currently on a possible trade on one.  I think it will make an excellent camera bag for shooting parties and on location photo sessions.  Seems I could fill it with my most used lenses and a body relatively easily.  Push come to shove and it doesn't then it will make a nice work bag, since I no longer carry a laptop everyday.

Post by: DaveK on November 29, 2009, 03:31:43 AM
If the one you are looking at is the one I think it is - it's even bigger than mine!

Mine's the Fatboy, "yours" is the Jumbo, which I though about for a little while but decided against, and I think for an EDC bag, I got it about right.

I oculd get all of the above in my Thermite Versipack, but that was about it. With the Fatboy, all of that stuff fits in pockets, so there's actually only the hand gel in the main compartment! Plenty of room for more crap :D

The Jumbo could conceal a small family car I'm told :D
Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!
Post by: Styerman on November 29, 2009, 11:29:27 AM
The Jumbo is large to the point it doesn't have most of the advantages of the Fat Boy . On the plus side it would prolly contain all your whips , restraints , sex toys and clean up supplies .  >:D

no, they are not tictacs, there's a glasses cleaning cloth :)

I am currently looking for a better quality pocket that could replace the brown one. Any suggestion?

Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!

Have you considered a Bill Urban Wallet (http://www.billscustomcases.com/accessories.html)?

Might be a little bit snugger than your current one but they are very good.
Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!
Post by: sardauker on December 04, 2009, 04:17:07 PM
Yep.

I like its design (when I'm going to replace my current wallet with a bigger one, I'll consider it) but I think it wouldn't fit my Palm AND Cybertool...

so I was and am looking for a kind of tool belt. Nite-ize is wonderful for the two cell phones and the tools Pock-its, but I saw nothing to replace the pocket I have.

I also carried a manbag, as you called it, but I prefer the current setting :/

FINALLY!  A change in the line up!

So on the keychain, things have been stirred up a bit:

(http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z231/bluebadger88/misc/EDC/EDC091208.jpg)

Gone is the Atwood WildCard.  With the addition of the Raker Ring Tool, there's no longer a need for the rapid access blade on the Wildcard, plus, no sheath.  The other lovely thing on the WildCard was the SAE and metric wrenches.  So, to regain that, the Atwood Funnybone makes the bigtime, with better Ergo wrenches.  :tu:

Now, the keychain has an excellent dedicated magnetic Phillips driver, flat driver, file, open blade and scissors via the Vic Alox Rambler, quick blade for cord/string and packages, quick flat driver and bottle opener ala Raker Ring Tool, and SAE/Metric wrenches c/o Atwood Funnybone.

Random suggestion, but if anyone is in good standing with CRKT (:pok: Def), perhaps he or she could mention the need for a locking mechanism when the blade is closed on the Zilla and Zilla Jr.  :pok:

The postie brought a new bit of kit today, acquired with some of the Heinnie Haynes vouchers I got for Christmas. It's a Maxpedition EDC Pocket Organizer (should be Organiser I know, but that's the way it was spelled on the label ;)).

The intention here is that I can quickly transfer "stuff" between my working laptop bag and my Fatboy Versipack, as well as being a handy, grabbable (?) pack with bits in it if I need something at home or short car trips etc.

The stuff pictured is pretty much things that were lying on my desk at the moment - it will be fun deciding what goes in and what gets stuffed back in the drawer over the next few days.

So what bikes do you run now then mate? :)

i have to say these days due to funds my bikes have got cheaper than the ones i had back in the 90's and early 00, at the mo i use a AT30 for the odd MTB ride and my carrera for every day riding, that one has evolved over the last few years, but if you want to see all my bike over the years just look up paul dengel on face book, there all there other than the stuff i raced in back in the early 90's.
 
not had this long and replaced my 95 kaluea ,this need's better forks, but for the money is a nice ride,plus git its spd's back on now and better tyres,

Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!
Post by: DaveK on January 01, 2010, 01:06:11 PM
Far too much! Twenty quid in fact, but it was with vouchers so it didn't hurt as bad!

It is a neat thing, as it's exactly the same height as the main pocket in the Fatboy Versipack, so you can just drop it in there when using that bag, chuck it in the car, fetch it if the missus want a plug changing etc. The main advantage for me will be being able to chuck it in my laptop bag as I leave for work in the mornings, instead of transferring stuff from on pocket to another. I calculate I should get an extra 5 minutes in bed :D

Definitely over-priced though. But good, and I'm worth it  :P

It's the TEHRD

Tactical Errant Hair Relocation Device. It's a very serious matter you know  :salute:


Love the organiser, and especially the little ruler thing. I'm having trouble deciding exactly what to put in mine too - managed to bulk the thing out straight away so I'm rethinking that now! I definitely like the idea of using it as a transfering between bags kind of thing.

Cheers cerbera. It's such a simple thing that I'm sure a "no brand" would perform just as well as one with a Maxpud logo on it!

It's been an interesting exercise figuring out what to put in here as opposed to what I prefer to pocket carry etc. Today, it's looking like this:

(http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e10/DaveK-ToolPics/EDCPocketOrganiser003.jpg)

All the contents laid out:

(http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e10/DaveK-ToolPics/EDCPocketOrganiser005.jpg)

I can get quite a bit more in there if I want, but I don't want it getting too bulky or heavy. I'm not there yet - but I think the idea will fly once I've nailed down exactly which stuff should be in there.

I probably need to lose a pen and either the SAK or Micra. Given that I've the UKPK, Prybaby and Raker Ringtool in my pockets - there's redundant weight there.

I tell you - this is tough  ???

As i cycle everywhere i keep it down to the bare minimum.


Fit panniers then :D

I cycle everyday too :) But I've not figured out how to travel light yet ::)

my audax bike has a pannier  ;) and when mtb'ing i use a camalbak ,but if im noy cycling im walking so and have never liked carry to much stuff, oh my audax and mtb are ali lol i do miss my steel kaliuea  :(

paul
Yeah there is something special about steel, and the ride's definetley better too :-\

So what bikes do you run now then mate? :)

i have to say these days due to funds my bikes have got cheaper than the ones i had back in the 90's and early 00, at the mo i use a AT30 for the odd MTB ride and my carrera for every day riding, that one has evolved over the last few years, but if you want to see all my bike over the years just look up paul dengel on face book, there all there other than the stuff i raced in back in the early 90's.
 
not had this long and replaced my 95 kaluea ,this need's better forks, but for the money is a nice ride,plus git its spd's back on now and better tyres,

I thought about doing a audax, but my foot is so knackered from a motorbike accident, it cramps up after about 15-20 miles :(

im in the same boat mike as have a bad ankle injurie from 9 years ago, i dont do audax but this is a comfortable bike to ride long distance , the MTB is filling a gap while im short on funds,other than the forks and went better brakes it rides ok, i dont get out as much as i use to so does me for now, shame you dont live nearer mate i dont find the cyclist as friendly down here as i did in London, im from watford originally , although always been a bit of a loan cyclist,

You know with all the stuff I carry I thought I had all the bases covered right? I mean I always have a folder, a multi, two pocket lights, a lighter and some other goodies. But lastnight I got stranded after work because of the snow and got put up in a hotel for the night. It was after midnight and I was hungry so I walked accross the street to walmart to get a tv dinner to eat in the hotel room. I got back microwaved it then realized I had nothing to eat it with. Looks like I have to go through the spork thread to get some ideas.

Nice mod John.

I don't think the blades are that bad. I think I might as well leave them on there tbh.

Dave IIRC mine was faulty from the off the middle pin didn't sit right pushing out one side and the blade had more play than a roulette machine  ;)

I am really liking the Maxpedition EDC Organiser  :drool:

Even at £20 it just seems to be fit for purpose. I saw a Highlander Notebook Holder in an Army Surplus store but it was priced at £15, I was close to getting it but for a fiver more I could the Maxpedition version  :D The Highlander was nice with plenty of space and loops inside but it was DPM camouflage on the outside! Mine will spend a lot of time in and out of laptop bag rather than the field.

Our US friends are spoilt for choice with these organisers  :P

Got a birthday coming up in February so time to drop some hints to Mrs. cerbera  :gimme:  :rofl:

Post by: nuphoria on January 10, 2010, 03:50:30 PM
The Maxped one is slightly larger than the other similar items like the Spec Ops one, but it does have more options for what to fit it by virtue of its loop and pocket set up. I really like mine  :tu:

my edc maxped organizer arrived yesterday.  I got mine in OD green.    Like Nuphoria said, it's a bit bigger than other "pocket" organizers, but I plan on using mine to keep gear that I want to transfer from whatever vehicle I'm using that day. 

I'll try and get some pics up. :)
Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!
Post by: Viking on January 10, 2010, 05:57:43 PM
Here's the pic!

Just quickly loaded it up with some items, I'm sure I'll play around with the location and add and subtract some things.  These are mostly back-up or supplemental items to my EDC.  This organizer is something that I'll just toss in whatever vehicle I'm using that day or if I'm  riding with someone, I'll bring it along.

Contents:

Zebra Expanding Pen
Zebra F301 Pen
Sharpie
Bark River PSK with Ghost Green Jade handles with black liners
Leatherman Kick
4Sevens Quark 123
Benchmade 1100-2 Tactical Pen
Ipod
Notebook
Fox40 Whistle
Emergency Cash

Great pic, thanks Viking  :tu:

Nice selection inside too  :D

Is there anything on the back of the pack? I've seen the front with a velcro patch for a badge and a slip pocket but does the rear have anything exciting happening?

Would an iPod video fit within the straps?

They have molle straps on the back for attachment and usually a small handle too which a lot of folks seem to remove.

It's a Maxpedition Fatboy Versipack  (http://www.maxpedition.com/store/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=31&idcategory=4). It's blummin great, although I wished I'd got the Jumbo already  ::)

Now I've filled my EDC Organiser I'm thinking I need something bigger  ::) I am really impressed with quality of the Maxped gear, not so much the price though.
Love the idea of a murse, not sure if I could carry it off  :-[

Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!
Post by: DaveK on January 12, 2010, 09:56:44 PM
Lol. I won't be changing it too soon I expect - the missus would kill me :D

Just a note on prices btw. Heinnie's have the biggest range of Maxpedition gear I've seen, but they do not have the cheapest prices by a long distance! E.g. the Falcon II I bought recently, compare Heinnie's price (http://heinnie.com/X2hwcu1032143/Bags-and-Wallets/Maxpedition/Bags/Maxpedition-Falcon-II-Bag/p-281-289-359-2064/) with fenixtorch.co.uk's price (http://www.fenixtorch.co.uk/maxpedition/falcon2.html)! Yeah - Heinnie's is 20% more  :-\ (And I'm sure they had the Falcon II at 129 quid when I was looking too - I remember it being 30 quid cheaper I'm sure).  :think:

Fenixtorch.co.uk have delivered everything next day included in the price too, same as Heinnies, so there doesn't seem to be a trade off with service either. They don't have such a wide selection - but if they have what you want :tu: It's definitely worth shopping around if you do go for it.

I ordered the Milspec Monkey patches on 1st Jan btw, and they arrived today.

Hi Ryan, like Dave says, there's pkenty of info here regarding lights etc but personally I have an ITP A3 EOS torch which kicks butt! There's lots of info here about them as they are quite popular at the moment.

Regarding your ALX, as it has locking blades it's technically illegal for any of us to carry I'm afraid :(
There are a lot of MTs that don't lock so you might consider looking them for EDC purposes.

Well, you'll be pleased to hear that your organizer fits perfectly into the largest compartment of the Fatboy Versipack. So you can carry both!

As for carrying it off, who cares? To me, anyone who gives me any flak for carrying a bag is not someone I would value the opinion of anyway. And you'll be surprised how many strangers (other guys) will ask where you got that bag.

BTW: for you new Fatboy fans, the Maxpedition triple mag holder is a must.  http://www.maxpedition.com/store/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=250&idcategory=60

Check out the pics and you'll see why. It fits inside the CCW compartment and sticks to the loop velcro there. So if you don't carry a firearm, which I suspect our Brit pals do not, you can carry 3 SAKs, MTs, flashlights, sporks, etc in that spot quite neatly.

Also, Dave.. if you'd like your phone to be closer to your chest and free up that Molle for something else, try taking the metal clip off that holster and instead threading the Molle on it's back over the strap above the buckle. Takes some fiddling to get it over the buckle, but it is doable.

Shall I post pics of each?

I would put head phones wrapped around one of those curvyman things, gum, compact zebra pen, lighter and/or matches, possible mp3 player depending on how big it is, money.  Also, now that I think about it.  I use those little plastic containers that gum and mints come in to carry medicine (sudafed, benadryl, tylenol, ibuprofen) and also very small med kit, small bandaids and bandages, gauze etc.  That kind of stuff would fit nicely in one of those.  Very compact little kit.  It could also be one the biggest change purses I've ever seen. :)

The triple mag insert loaded with a spork, a pry bar, adjustable wrench, and my prized forceps. Wrench and pry bar both have sheaths tucked into the mag insert. Keeps them from rubbing.

(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2704/4270361275_bb32d099f7.jpg)

Here is the PDA holster mounted on the shoulder strap and loaded with my Blackberry. This works with the 4" holster as well. Easier to access than having the device on the Molle at the other end where the strap joins the bag. And no interference with the key clip. Also saves that Molle for other things. I need it for a large tape measure on the job.

Oh, and for those here who carry a Fatboy and want to have a light and an MT holstered and outside accessible, do buy a Maxpedition sheath for your bag. It attaches neatly to the Molle on the pouch on the side opposite to the built in sheath.

(http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4036/4271109924_0484f6c829.jpg)


And for those that missed my prior posts about patches and want to know what that Poseidon patch is, it is a Navy liberty cuff patch. I have collected several, and they all fit the Fatboy like they were made for it.

Here are a few:

(http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4049/4271104470_d6aea204e3.jpg)

So from one Maxpedition fan to those who may be considering or are just getting kitted out, thumbs up to you! There are so many great options for this terrific bag. I am the owner of two Fatboys, and have had the first one for... maybe three years now? So I can speak to the durability and flexibility.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the pics Glorn - I can see one of those triple mag holders in my near future I think :tu:

Re: my phone - I can actually (just about) squeeze my iPhone into the built in pouch so that works pretty well.

The PDA / Phone holster on the back, I use for my camera! My camera has a sliding cover on the front that switches it on - and it's very prone to doing this when you don't want it to in my bag or pocket :( I find that the PDA holster there keeps it still so that doesn't happen, and consequently have found the battery flat less often since I started using it!

I wonder if you could get a donut in the can case too :D

Regarding your ALX, as it has locking blades it's technically illegal for any of us to carry I'm afraid :(
There are a lot of MTs that don't lock so you might consider looking them for EDC purposes.

Another good light, that is the same size as your Solitaire but puts out more light than you'll be able to believe, is the Fenix LD01. 

As for your Multi, the ALX is fine for you to carry at work, and also when going directly to and from work (so no stopping at the pub/shops etc).  A few of us can be quite flippant about carrying locking tools but given your age and the current media hype I'd be really careful about when you carry it without specific reason.

A reasonable, cheap, non-locking, UK EDC legal multi you might want to think about is the Leatherman Kick.  A lot of our options are listed here: http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,8384.0.html

This is what I have on me, theres more in my bag but this is on me.

Billfold (with Swisscard), iphone, tobacco, Zippo, wedding ring (white gold), engagement ring (titanium), ring-I-use-to-open-bottles (steel), ring (surgical steel), bracelet (steel), bracelet (titanium/silver), Vic Spirit (liked it more than I thought). There is car keys with a little Fenix, house and work keys (tip, make your house and work keys the same!) with a little Swiss Lite.

The watch is a Yes Watch Zulu (surprised to see so few of them aroud here (well, theres the price of course)) http://www.yeswatch.com/wrist-watch/timekeeper/zulu.html


Maybe I will show off my brand new Sitka with contents some other time, but that one is more or less nothing you guys have not seen before.


(Just bought me a SwissFlame btw)

at the moment when im at work i edc a charge alx a mini maglite ( work gave it too me) and a solitaire on my keys

i want to get better flash light and im getting an alox classic to go on my keys

i only carry the leatherman at work as im 17 and in uk id rather not get arrested lol

works a maintenance apprenticeship so thats why i have the leatherman

any suggestions on other edc stuff?




Hi Ryan, like Dave says, there's pkenty of info here regarding lights etc but personally I have an ITP A3 EOS torch which kicks butt! There's lots of info here about them as they are quite popular at the moment.

Regarding your ALX, as it has locking blades it's technically illegal for any of us to carry I'm afraid :(
There are a lot of MTs that don't lock so you might consider looking them for EDC purposes.

as long as you have a reason to carry it, it is fine. even if you don't, I won't go into the technicalities of it, but I don't think anyone has ever been convicted for carrying a multitool, and it seems unlikely too given the nature of case law.

There are a lot of MTs that don't lock so you might consider looking them for EDC purposes.

Another good light, that is the same size as your Solitaire but puts out more light than you'll be able to believe, is the Fenix LD01. 

As for your Multi, the ALX is fine for you to carry at work, and also when going directly to and from work (so no stopping at the pub/shops etc).  A few of us can be quite flippant about carrying locking tools but given your age and the current media hype I'd be really careful about when you carry it without specific reason.

A reasonable, cheap, non-locking, UK EDC legal multi you might want to think about is the Leatherman Kick.  A lot of our options are listed here: http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,8384.0.html

BTW are you mechanical or electrical?  I served my time as a mechanical maintenance engineer and have mostly done that kind of work ever since (and a few other things to add a bit of spice :D).  I didn't discover multi's until after I had finished my apprenticeship though.  :-\

its a bit of both building maintenance for the a company called romec we do all royal mails maintenance we so do lifts etc lights all sorts you'd be surprised how varied it is.

and yeah i only carry iot to and from work no where else im careful about that

might look at a knifeless fuse or something for other times though

As I prepare for the latest EDC load out pic, I realize that I missed posting the update from July (I shoot it every six months roughly).

So, here is the shot from July 09:

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3109/3740950863_3d11b2e948.jpg)

And details: http://www.flickr.com/photos/29913300@N08/3740950863/


This was an experiment of sorts. I bought (and LOVE) the CountyComm BOB. So I ditched the Fatboy for a while and went a whole new direction. But, the capacity of the BOB allows me to indulge in serious EDC excess.

So I am now back to a Fatboy again, this time in black. It really is the best size for me. Forces me to leave things at home. That update is coming soon.

Glorn, thanks for the entertaining explanation of your stuffs... very good, especially breath repair kit  :rofl:

OCD and proud :D
Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!
Post by: glorn on January 15, 2010, 04:57:40 PM
Oh, it was too much stuff, there's no question there. But it was also rather nice to have all of one's fiddly kit with you wherever you roam. That bag really has a lot going for it, especially in terms of organization and capacity. I am currently trying to find a new niche for it. I think it will become a travel bag though. But I have considered outfitting all of my EDC bags identically so that when the mood strikes I need only move wallet and Blackberry. Nah, that's crazy talk.  :ahhh


Speaking of trucks, the County Comm BOB is an ideal work bag. I do drive a truck as my daily vehicle, a Ford F-150 currently (I'd rather push a Ford than bail out Chevy), and that sort of bag is a good one to toss on the passenger seat. Tools and 8 1/2 x 11 pads are easily stowed along with an extension cord, water, and some gloves. Not a good bag strictly for tools alone, as it is not the right material for that, but for a small kit like I use, it works well.

But I have been back to my beloved Fatboy for a few months now, and have enjoyed the lighter EDC. I still remove things and then add them back in toward an ever increasingly weighty EDC, but this is my nature. Eventually, I may go minimal and drop the bag (I have done this occasionally for a year or so) but I think the Fatboy is what is working right now.


EDC or OCD, what more can I say..

But take care, this disease is contagious.

Welcome to MTO; I saw your update of your EDC over on EDCF, and I have to say, that's a nice improvement. :)

Anyway, here's an update of mine, now; granted, not much has changed.

Overexposed piece of folded printer paper
Overexposed handkerchief
Overexposed Alltel Samsung Hue II with 2GB MicroSD card inserted
Big Skinny Card Case (downgraded to this from my zippered thin card case; I like the change) with IDs, insurance cards, cash, and credit and debit cards
Maratac AAA
Victorinox belt hanger with:
   Micro Widgy (moved there from my old Big Skinny wallet; still need to find a safe place to carry a USB drive now :/)
   Victorinox Rambler
   Uncle Bill's Sliver Grippers
   Photon II with white LED
   Sunshine Product's Cash Can (now apparently discontinued in favor for a larger cash can, I think?  :think:)
   Inka Pen
Victorinox SwissTool Spirit X with leather sheath
Victorinox Explorer Plus (typical EDC)
Victorinox 09 new Soldier (birthday gift from a friend; I've been carrying it on and off lately)

Soon to be added:

Hey, I don't carry both the new Soldier and Explorer Plus simultaneously; granted, when I drive, I do, since I tend to have my OHT with me, not to mention a bag with a small tool kit. >.>  With that said, on a day-to-day basis, it's only four blades, and even then the Spirit X and Rambler are present only to supplement the Explorer Plus.  Hmm, on that note, I suppose I could ditch my Rambler for a quattro driver, but then I'd need to figure out where to carry that, too. :/

Thank you.  Yes, County Comm does, however they don't ship outside the US; http://endtimesreport.com/survival_shop.html (http://endtimesreport.com/survival_shop.html), however, does.  The Pocket Widgy is best for a bag or sheath, while the Micro Widgy is best for a keychain.  In my opinion, the Pico Widgy is honestly too small, but that's just because I have long fingers, and with my current set-up, can get away with dangling the Micro Widgy into my back pocket without feeling it; hence my preference of using the Victorinox belt hanger. :)

I do, actually, have one each of the Pocket (in my bag's toolkit), Micro (as seen, now on my keychain), and Pico (in my Mug Boss on my desk) widgies, with a modified Micro Widgy... somewhere.  The times I've used my Micro Widgy haven't been too frequent, but it worked well for when I did use it.  I nearly shuddered when I was at a gun and knife show Saturday, when one of my source's display case latch was stuck; her partner deployed his Leek's blade as he was about to use it as a pry bar, and I quickly fumbled with my then-current Big Skinny wallet, trying to pull out the Micro Widgy quickly.  Luckily the case was opened before he used it, and in hindsight I should've just given him my Micro Widgy for future use, but it didn't run through my head until after I'd left. :/  Still, it would've come in handy then, and has come in handy as a fridge scraper, and as a general, small pry bar. :)  Plus, unlike Pocket Wrench II's, Atwoods, JDRs, or even Gerbers, these are quite cheap, won't be confiscated by TSA (hah, who knows, though?), and no loss if it ever breaks, due to cheap costs to replace it. :)

Thank you Sazabi for your detailed answer  :tu: :salute:

The Pico Bars do look great for keys but as you say probably not practical for heavy usage  ::)

Might look towards the Micro Widgy although now you have drawn my attention the Pocket Wrench II   ::) :tu:  :D

Nice

I thought I wouldn't use my pico at all but to the contrary I find I use it all the time  :tu:  :D

things I've used mine for:
 opening boxes
 prying batteries from carriers
 spreading split rings
 get stones out of the tread on my boots
 nail cleaner
 grout scrapper
 used it unscrewing a light switch cover
 I also find it works great as a striker on fire steels
 and anything I usually use my thumb nail to scrap  :tu:

I'm going to try this book binding ring in side my Maxped EDC org "that is once it arrives  ::)"

Anyway I've been using one for a few days and I like them,ok they're not to be used say hanging from you belt just in case it opens inadvertently and well you could lose stuff  :ahhh

But used in a EDC organiser or deep in a pocket it'll be fine,I've found them to be very useful for getting to something on the ring very quickly  :tu:

They snap shut and cannot be pulled apart easily,the ones I'm trying are 19mm dia which adds to a small profile  :tu:

Not sure if you'll agree with me but it's another carry option when you need to keep little key thing's together but may need to get to a particular one in a hurry  ;)

You're welcome, Cerbera; I'm just curious why they no longer make (or had a very limited run, at least) of the Carbon V Pocket Wrench IIs. :/

Well, Carbon V is no longer available anyhow, and frankly I don't think there would be a purpose in using such a steel for the intended use of this product. :think:

But it looked pretty.  :P  >.>  I don't see why some other company doesn't purchase the, I dunno, rights to create a steel when a particular factory goes under. :/  Granted, I don't know much beyond the general types of steel for which I should keep any eye out on, compared to ones (AUS-4, anyone?) I should avoid for a knife.  I'm still a probie in that department. :P

I can see that argument, yeah.  Hrm, any word on how Crucible is doing?  It's just a shame stable steelworks can't purchase failed steelworks (such as Blackjack), not only expanding their purvey, but also keeping a good steel on the market without the need of any costly setup investment, especially if the equipment is still in place. :/

Problem is, who'd invest in a steelworks that failed? The underlying reason is not likely to change... and there's nothing in the steelworks itself that you can do either. :-[

True, Frog, still, I suppose it's just a pipe dream, is all. ^^;  Even though I don't have any knives using Crucible Steel in it, it'd still be a shame to not only lose those jobs, but all of their special steels, as well, if they happen to go the same way as Blackjack. :/

I EDC Burt's Bees as well, but only in winter. I prefer the honey lip balm, as it seems to heal faster. Supposedly honey is antibacterial. I don't know, but for flavor it sure beats the usual overly minty lip balms or that awful artificial cherry flavor Chapstick.

Blade length is 2and 15/32". I have been wearing a buckle knife for about 3 years now. It is very non intrusive, and quicker than a knife in a pocket.

TAD Gear OP1 organizer as an EDC bag. Small enough to fit easily into a larger backpack or bag. This would be the absolute minimum I would want to bug out with -- more like evacuate with. Fire is covered (Windmill lighter, Horseshoe Mtn. firestarter); light is covered (Ra / HDS Twisty flashlight); and sharps are covered (Vic. Centurion SAK). Important docs and info on an Ironkey USB flash drive. Simple FAK w/OTC meds, spare RX meds, cell phone charger and headset, pen & notebook, OC spray, spare CR123A battery. Total weight is 1.7 lbs.

John I like the look of your wallet. What kind is it?

This is the best wallet I've ever owned:

http://www.saddlebackleather.com/categories/101-Wallets-Large-Bifold/products/2091-Leather-Wallet-Bi-Fold-Large-Dark-Coffee-Brown

It will probably last me the rest of my life. Spend a little time checking out their products. I would highly recommend them.  :tu:

You got to love their warranty:
Quote
100 yr. warranty. If it wears out before you do, I'll replace it for free.

What's the date code on yours? :P :D

First off,

Gadget Guy:  Thanks for the link to Saddleback Leather.  I'm trying to decide which wallet to go with.

Next:  My work EDC (differs from Farm EDC)

(http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z231/bluebadger88/misc/EDC/P1010035.jpg)

The top row is in my pockets.  The bottom 2 rows are in my bag.  Changes from previous EDC: Maratec replaces Fenix for work EDC (Fenix is now thw Farm EDC light).  Raker Ring Tool is off of the keyring for work, but is with the Fenix on the Farm EDC (that's where I really use it).

Edit to add: I almost forgot!

Also in my back pocket:

You never know when you have to blow your nose and wipe your arse at the same time ;)

I have a similar G-shock now - the GWM5600BC. Negative display and a really comfy metal/resin band. No complaints about this one at all  :tu:
Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!
Post by: Sazabi on March 10, 2010, 12:12:50 AM
I really love the negative display you have, Nuphoria, but I'd just be concerned about the display wearing out quicker than the one I have:  much less LCD to color, compared to yours. :/  Nevertheless, I can't get over how nice your display looks. o.o

And no, the bandanna is of much rougher material than the handkerchief, so it's better for the rare occasion of sweat or whatnot, compared to my nose that likes to run. o.O

Sounds about right, certainly most chaps of my Grandfather's generation and before would have carried one, quite a few from my fathers generation (55+) and yet almost none from mine or younger.  Perhaps it's just another indicator of the "disposable culture" we find ourselves in. :-\



Either that, or young people don't like the idea of carrying around a snotty bit of material in their pocket.  Can't see why not myself. :think:

I have to admit that I've carried a cotton handkerchief for a few years now.   A bit old fashioned these days though. :-\

My dad always had a bandanna or handkerchief with him. It came in handy for all sorts of things. I carry one myself every day and have tried to get me 12 year old son to carry one as well (plus his Fieldmaster SAK when not in school).

A couple of weekends ago while we were in church there was a lady with two small children sitting in front of us. One of them had a cold with a really runny nose and she looked in her purse and nothing. So, I handed her my Sunday handkerchief and told her it was clean and of course to keep it.

Old fashioned. Maybe. But certainly easy carry and quite useful.  :tu:

And as always, sorry for the picture quality:

Mine has the little stripes marking out the 5 second intervals in brown. This would be my new EDC- reckon I need a watch sooner or later. :D :D

According to my Swiss Grandfather (Borne about the time Elsener produced the first Swiss Army Knife), it was essential EDC.  Although he always referred to it as a Naseputze. (?sp)

Sounds about right, certainly most chaps of my Grandfather's generation and before would have carried one, quite a few from my fathers generation (55+) and yet almost none from mine or younger.  Perhaps it's just another indicator of the "disposable culture" we find ourselves in. :-\



Either that, or young people don't like the idea of carrying around a snotty bit of material in their pocket.  Can't see why not myself. :think:

My handkerchief absorbs readily, and works quite well - besides, if you want to carry around a snotty bit of material badily, try carrying a tissue after you've blown your nose - no bloody way. -_-

Apart from anything else, it's eco friendly to wash and reuse such things.

It's so right that younger folks tend to just use and throw away anything they need. When I see someone getting carrier bags in the supermarket these days, it's usually someone younger. I rarely need one as we have a bunch of heavy duty reusable bags in the car.

If you don't have a car, it's easy to pocket carry a lightweight nylon bag and use that... just laziness not to I reckon. It's a generalization I know, but I think older generations appreciate the value of things a lot more.

I carry one of these in the EDC bag: http://baggubag.com/#Shop

Comes in a nice selection of colors... black, navy, olive drab, brown.. all good men's colors. Even comes in pink for Benner.  :pok:  :D
 
Frankly, I hate the millions of plastic bags one accumulates in a week if you don't carry a small reusable. In the days of paper, this was no big deal. Burn 'em as fire starter, compost them, etc. But my god... these plastic ones seem to breed like rats.

I even made the wife start carrying one nylon bag in her purse, and we got some sturdy ones for her car for the shopping.


I do carry a bandana, and it is good for my daughters tears or nose. When she fell at the park last fall, it was handy for wiping mud off of her before getting in the car. My grandfather always carried one.. when he died, mine was well used at his funeral. I nearly soaked it with tears.

And my father always carried one as well. Or a plain white cotton handkerchief. And I remember him holding it while I (all of five years old maybe) blew my nose on a cold day.

If I had a cold, I would likely keep tissues handy. But for an average day, it isn't like it is sodden with snot from 7am to midnight. I use it only when necessary for anything one would consider disgusting. And then it goes in the laundry that eve.

While I feel as a generalization you are wholly correct, there is a new movement of environmental concern that is being brought about by me and mine. We have public interest groups in our universities, host environmental days (today is bottled water free day), raise money for social injustice (sometime soon is the 5 days for the homeless event), and teach courses in home composting and gardening. Personally, I compost, recycle everything possibly recyclable, carpool, bring those bags with me, that I have had since I was 10, and use a handkerchief.

I agree that so far it is a small movement, but hopefully you old people can pull us up, while we push from behind. People need those reusable bags, the need to know about the foods they eat, buy local and organic, and frankly, get off their asses and do something. I know so many students that always complain about the government and policy this. policy that, but just sit on their laptops!

Anyway, Im done ranting now I guess, cheers

It's bizarre that people need to learn that bottled water is ridiculous though. I, like millions of other very lucky people have perfectly good tap water at home and NEVER buy it in a bottle unless it's absolutely necessary.

I agree, but they're useful for using one through the week (ie one water bottle reused daily for a week, and then recycled), when you realize the water bottles you purchased for constant use are too large for your bookbag... and pretty much everything else, too. :(  I purchased a pack of... 24(?) water bottles at the beginning of this semester and have used only one per week, refilling it whenever I can from either water fountains or from my purifying water pitcher (which is required... our turbidity levels here from the sinks make it appear as if skim milk is flowing -_-).  I know I need to switch to truly reusable water bottles, but the first purchase was a bust (see above) when I discovered they were too large for pretty much everything. :/  I think I need a pair of SIGGs or Klean Kanteens, and I suppose I need to sell my two Nalgene/Guyot Design bottles. ~_~

[Edit:  Also, I do tend to forget to bring my reusable grocery bags, that's a given, but I offset that with the fact that I go grocery shopping maybe once a month or once every two months, and tend to not have more than four plastic bags, which are then reused eventually as garbage bags, sometimes for months at a time, depending on what is put into the garbage can.  Likewise, while I do carpool back home sometimes, I don't typically around here, but that's because I may drive a whole ten minutes for a week or two, with the exception of the 2.5 hour drives home. ^^;]

Ah, and water carry offers so many EDC fix options!

I carry a black US GI canteen and cup in one of these: http://www.maxpedition.com/store/pc/1-QT-USGI-CANTEEN-POUCH-7p999.htm

And fill it every morning (and evening if I am going out) from the tap.

I ran two TacTies on the back and slipped a buckled nylon strap through, so it has a grab handle that doubles as a belt (for hiking).

A full canteen lasts me through a work day usually.

I'm glad you've brought this out.

Over the last couple of years, BossLady and I have been working on decreasing our eco footprint.  Composting like crazy, organic farming of renewable crops, NO bottled water, NO canned drinks (Beer in bottles however... ::)), heavy duty recycling, and this year, we're delving into beekeeping as well.

Adding to this, I'm having serious reservations about the resources expended for my climbing trips.  Despite really loving the trips, flying or driving a dozen hours to go somewhere to climb, etc, just seems like a LOT of resources wasted for what is really just frivolous fun.

If I lived within a couple hours of ice/mountains it would be different.  Sorta thinking about hanging up the major trips for a more ecofriendly life...

I see what you mean when you call it frivolous fun, but I recently did a debate in class on a topic involving this, the topic being if high-risk adventure (including climbing) was socially irresponsible. It is a very touchy subject with a lot of people, and the main arguments that it is are environmental impacts, health risks, and economic costs. But then again, as tourism, it generates a lot of income for communities, people are exponentially healthier (although we do get injured more often), and the vast majority of hard use high-risk adventure people are extremely eco-conscious. I find the topic super interesting personally, but I also don't feel that it is a frivolous activity. There was a study done that proved that we lack normal levels (lower) of dopamine, which drives us to these activities.

Anyway, if anyone is interested, here is a trailed of the documentary Tapped, which is a main argument against bottled water, and the impacts surrounding the topic:

Bottled Water Free day was a movement against the usage, not getting them for free. Things like the counter-campaign you mention scare me, and just show how far down the rabbit hole we are, how the greed of corporations run our countries.

I've bought a gassifier, that adds CO2 to spring or tap water, and I use it for making my wife's water. Huge saving in money and PET.

Off work today, and began the spring clean up of the automobiles . Oil and filter changes, wipers, etc. This is what I kept on me. Didn't need the cell phone...nice and quiet, for a change  :)

Is that a black clipdraw on a BO Spirit?
Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!
Post by: Sam Quint on March 24, 2010, 12:04:18 PM
Nikos, Yes it is. Went over the entire tool very lightly with Flitz polish. It removed all of the excess oxide residue. Lifted the idea from MTO  ;)
To add to the blasphemy...thats a Nitecore D10 clip on a early JetBeam II. I like pouches , but I like well designed pocket clips better. Both of these are very secure and suit my needs and preferred beach-bum, off work attire.  :D

My edc bag. Blotted due to it being filled almost to the limit with work and college edc, books, netbook + charger, tools, snacks, Nalgene bottle etc... The bag is a Kifaru Tailgunner I with Admin pouch attached, I use an old rifle sling for a strap with Timbuk2 shoulder pad and two of their pouches.

Mmm, very nice indeed.

Reminds me of the Bob T Spydie (the UK legal one), which is also rather good.

A bit heavy for mid sized folder (3.5"/5.5oz), but doesn't really feel heavy when clipped to pocket and in hand. There's no cutout for liner lock release so that's a little difficult. Handle shape is very comfortable, but there is no finger guard/jimping in choil so may not be suited for stabbing tasks. Haven't done any heavy work with it yet so can't say how it holds up, but just looking at it it's one of the most robust spydercos ever made.

My EDC is rather boring, but functional.

(http://i406.photobucket.com/albums/pp149/realmillhouse/P1000145.jpg?t=1270247973)


I also keep a full kit bag in the car. Some might refer to it as a BOB, but I've reclassified it as an urban comfort kit. Everything is contained in a 30 litre rucksack. Not pictured is a full change of clothing, waterproofs, 2 pairs of gloves and boots. The bits that may interest you folk are:

Hi All,

This is my EDC stuff if I'm going to work, if I'm just going out I'll drop the Leatherman and the M16 knife as we can't carry knives here unless its for work.

Pretty typical stuff I guess although I don't carry a torch 24/7. The rescue cutter lives in a home made sheath in the wallet with the two thumb drives and I wear the watch on my belt 'cause I tend to bust things on my wrist.

The phone is the latest incarnation of the rugged nokia so its water dust and shock resistant which is handy, I got the extra plastic case as well as backup since this is the first time ive ever spent more than $20 on a phone. pager is 'cause I'm a volunteer firefighter. LM on the keychain is a squirt s4

Thanks guys,

I do a couple of different jobs, but essentially my background is natural resource management and especially invasive species control (plants and animals). I also work for our national parks service at the moment so I am always doing maintenance and stuff at national parks so I'm always whipping out the knives and multitools to fix little things that people have vandalised around the place.

I'm also a volunteer firefighter with our Rural Fire Service and we occasionally get called to car accidents so thats the main reason I've got a few of the more rescue orientated tools. To be honest we don't go to many but I think its always a good idea to be fully prepared.  :D

I love the boker and play with it incessantly. I have to say though that I haven't really found a solid niche for it, I have other things that I seem to use every day and its been sitting around a bit recently. However I'm putting a first aid kit together to include in my fire gear and I think it won't be at all out of place there.

No WiFi, but 3G. Experimental browser is included, but restricted to very few pages like Wikipedia, due to the European contracts with Phonetik companies. Amazon did not make as good contracts as in the US. Battery Life is great, I do never use it to play MP3 but have 3G activated most of the time and can read some thousand pages without recharge. I guess with 3G of it will last 3500-4000 pages.

Thanks Paul. You can't really go wrong with the Pulse. I have come to love the thing. Everything I need in a small package. I have even come to like the strange lock release.

+1 on the Pulse, it's loaded out like your PST-II but with far comfier grips and locking blades.  I've also come to really like the roller-locks.

Very much on a budget at the moment since I just spend a whole lot of money on LARP gear for a upcomming event, and some more on clothes. But this is what I carry everyday at the moment.

Sorry for the bad quality. I'm not very good with cameras.
This is a list of what I think it is -

Cold Steel City Stick
Cheap but functional leather belt with belt buckle from Alchemy Gothic
Leather gloves from X-tra-x
Cheap leather wallet with pentagram, dont remember where I got it
Mini maglite
Two stainless steel rings with iron cross's
Leather keychain with fake aluminium bullets
Ecological keyforb / shopping cart coin from my mother's work
Nokia phone, nothing special but it works
Victorinox camper (I think?) without scales
Spyderco DK penknife
Lucky Pig in china which I found on the ground
box of U2 sterk portion snus

Say if you want any details.

Oh yeah, sometimes I also edc this:

Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!
Post by: Lasse Eskildsen on April 12, 2010, 04:31:41 PM
Thank you :)
Well in a way. You dont realy chew it. Its a small tea-pouch with tobacco in which you place under your lip for 1-2 hours and let the nicotine get absorbed through your blood. And the saliva that reach it makes the taste flow into your mouth.

I read that it's not legal in Europe :/

I can understand why, but it is not worse than smoking... au contraire...
Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!
Post by: Lasse Eskildsen on April 12, 2010, 10:18:13 PM
Well its legal to use, but not legal to sell. Except for in sweden, so I buy mine online from there. You can only buy loose snus (snus without the tea-pouch which you instead roll into a ball and use) for some reason, not that this is any more dangerous. And its no where near as dangerous as smoking. But I guess that once you have made a law, if the politicians loosen it then it would show that they have made a fault. So I think its more of a princip. But I wont get into ranting about that  :ahhh

Blah!  I'm a dork...I was drooling over the BO PST in Allan's post and typed that...I don't have a PST...I have a Pulse.  A Pulse and Cadet.  Blah...i think I need to get a PST so I can stop obsessing about it.  sorry about that guys.  And I don't know what will come up specifically, but you just never know.  I always find something to use my SAK or MT for when I'm at work.  Last big thing I had to do was get a patient out of a locked bathroom by using the SAK to pop the lock.  I usually carry my Explorer with a Juice in the bag...but I thought of switching it up a bit.

What you want is what we call around here a " pub bike "  its old and rusty but in good working order except for the brakes , very important that the brakes don't work properly  ;)  The idea is you can leave the rusty old bike outside the pub and no one bothers to nick it and if they do it doesnt really matter . Oh and the idea behind the brakes not working , if you crash and fall off its because you've no brakes and nothing to do with the 8 pints of ale you've just consumed  :rofl:

Bicycle recycle point's a re a great idea if you ask me, trouble is there not usually local to you :-\

If you can't find one there though, look on ebay for a 10 speed, 80's racer/tourer as there superb everyday bikes once you've put more modern brake blocks on them, and can be had really cheaply :)
Title: Re: Show Us Your EDC gear!!!
Post by: glorn on April 15, 2010, 11:22:14 PM
I always ran just a front brake on mine, and set it up so that it stopped on a dime. I also always cabled it right handed for the lever.

You see, one needs time to master a freewheel bike with only a front brake. It takes finesse. Most bike thieves have no finesse and intend to ride away from the theft quite quickly. Which is just perfect when they decide to stop.. and they grab a hearty handful of brake.

When they wake up (if they wake up), they might have enough unmushed brains to remember never to steal a bike with no rear brake.

Awesome knife choice! Love the orange! Maybe get a flashlight though?


I keep a SureFire L1 Lumamax in my pack so I have one readily available. I seldom carry a flashlight in my pocket. If I have one on me its usually on my belt.

There bloody fantastic mate :D

There by far and away my favourite torch, as they tick all the right boxes for me...

Very robust and reliable.
Enough light to read by, without blinding yourself.
A massive amount of spill, so ideal for working in tight spaces.
Last's FOREVER on a cell, and will often work with apparently dead batteries :)
Can even run off aaa batteries in a push :)

They are a short range task light though, and are not much cop beyond 20-30 feet imo, but then I rarely use a light beyond that :)

I have a 'Pocketwrench' which is 4 inches that's very handy but not great for prying
and a Pocket Widgy that is also 4 inches and is quite handy, ok for prying but not really big enough

You probably don't know but Artemis is a female name... Goddess of hunt and wilderness (among others). Her priestesses were all virgin ::) and some of them got quite popular actually: the girls that gave Phidias the inspiration to create the Karyatides (Caryatids) were the priestesses of Artemis in her sanctum outside a small Greek town called Karyai. Just FYI. :tu:

First of all, the Artemis that inspired my name change is Artemis Entreri, an Assassin from the Forgotten Realms series.  And he is quite awesome.  And if I am meant to be named after a warrior chick like Xena, so be it!

Second, LMs DO rust, and Vics don't, but I will never say the phillips on the spirit doesn't slip.  That, and it is the softest phillips on any multi I have used.

Oooh, that changes things a bit. :D It's one of those "lost in translation" cases... The name of the Goddess is Άρτεμις (Artemis, the accent being on A); there is also its male form, Αρτέμης (artEmis, the accent being on E). Both of them would translate to Artemis in the Latin alphabet, lacking any written accent, hence the confusion. :tu:

Yea, you're right about that Nuphoria.  You know, I have yet to finish my pursuit of a college degree(much to my shame), but I am constantly spell checking and correcting my boss's emails(he has a Masters degree), and I am seriously the most articulate person in my company.  We have 700 employees.  I am not embellishing at all either, these folks say "supposebly" and other goofy things, not that there is anything wrong with that.   :D  I just find it hard to believe that out of all my friends that have BA's in something or another, they ask me how to spell things and I use words that they have never heard of.  I use the word "Porte cochere" a lot because we have one(most hotels do) and my boss had to ask me to stop because the executive staff was confused as to what I was describing when I used it.  Nikos' rant was very refreshing to say the least.

Hmm... I too am unconvinced that idiocy is solely an American problem.

But we must consider that most human beings are not all that far out on the family tree from the uneducated agrarian peasant, historically speaking anyway.

I believe that the world as a whole is getting smarter, but so is it growing smaller. As such, your exposure to stupidity grows larger.

But what do I know, I am just another dumb American.

It boils my chain to when people refer to being "smart" as having a degree.  I dropped out of college and I guarantee I am smarter than 70% of my former classmates.  I don't need a $40,000 piece of paper to prove it.
...And when people refer to "success" as having a high paying job.  A janitor who lives his dream of climbing everest is SUCCESSFUL.  The carpenter who designed and built his own house is SUCCESSFUL.  I don't see how the stock broker down the lane that makes 6 figures but has no hobbies or other goals in his life is successful :think:

Couldn't have said it better myself.  I am currently in the field of Loss Prevention(Security) for a large Golf Resort(Daycare for corporate A-holes).  I am actually quite happy here in this line of work, and though it doesn't pay the best, I go home to my little boy and beautiful wife a happy man.  I have low stress, my own office, and full benefits plus a rewarding career ahead of me.  The highest level of Education needed to acquire my endgame job is an Associates degree, and it won't do me any good to get it for another ten years.

I was carrying the CT for a long time, I've had two, but I noticed that I never used anything on it but the #2 phillips.  The really are great tools but they belong in a computer bag or an IT tech's pocket.  I sold mine to Gadget Guy to build some EDC funds. 

As for my name,  it was my nickname in highschool football.  I was quite fast in my day and my last name is Morris.  A lot of close friends still call me that, and it's better than accidentally changing your screenname to that of a greek warrior goddess.

I agree that academic qualifications are not always indicative of intelligence. Education, where it's available to people helps a great deal in many cases, but it doesn't bestow you with the innate genetic elements which dictate a lot of your cerebral abilities to begin with.

They are cheap but so far I'm not happy with the performance. Of the couple I have if sharpened as scandi grind anything other than green wood would dull the edge fast. I was using it to sharpen wooden sticks to pound into ground yesterday and cutting through a very small knot instantly rolled the edge pretty bad, I think I'll stick with 30° on sharpmaker.

I'm not such a fan of the idea of "scadi edges" at all.  I almost always go for a secondary micro-bevel.  Ironically the one knife I've kept as a true scandi is my Mora.

Maratac (http://www.countycomm.com/POCKETORGANIZER.htm)

It's not as heavy-duty as some, but it fits perfectly in the thigh pocket of all my cargo pants.  The technician's screwdriver and the Maratac AAA (that you can barely see in the organizer) are also from County Comm.

This is probably the first time I've carried the Wenger Tahara at the top of the pic.  I had a hard time keeping it in my pocket.  :climber:

As some of you may remember, I split my EDC SAK from a single Cybertool 41 with timekeeper scales to two separate modded tools:  The ElectroGolfer (NKB creation) and the Quantum Mechanic (my work):

(http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z231/bluebadger88/misc/QM/P1010005.jpg)

However, the other day, I came across a critical error in this strategy:

(http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z231/bluebadger88/misc/QM/IMG_0363.jpg)

No can opener!  :ahhh

Well sir, I had to make adjustments to my EDC, but only a minor tweak:
(http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z231/bluebadger88/misc/QM/IMG_0364.jpg)
(http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z231/bluebadger88/misc/QM/IMG_0365.jpg)

I had to swap the ElectroGolfer for another NKB creation: TacticalGolfer(to maintain the naming nomenclature) Soldier with Scissors.

The ElectroGolfer with its Saw and Scissors moves to Farm/Orchid Club carry and the TacticalGolfer moves into the slot next to the Quantum Mechanic for workday EDC

sadly although i fitted a deployment clasp to that strap it wasnt as comfy as i thought by the end of the day so back on the rubber divers strap thats very comfy  :D thanks for the comments guys n gals, the casio diver is a great watch for the money and worn 3 days in a row in the sea  :tu:
