this challenge is up my alley,i'd like to join as well.are pocket carried items included?some of my gear is pocketed.maybe i should dump that into a pouch on the bat belt?
It'd be great to have you! You can still pocket items during the challenge, but the more on your belt the better! I will always encourage another pouch

I don't usually carry anything on my belt. I'm a big guy and I already have to turn sideways to get through doors and I really hate when something on my belt gets caught by chairs when I sit. I wear cargo pants or shorts so I have a pocket for everything. That was on purpose. However, I am willing to give it a go for this challenge and we'll just call it an experiment.01) GearedForwards02) Poncho6503) SurgeUK04)JPAC05)Humayd A R Mahomedy06) Alan K.
Having completed the EDC in DEC challenge I have already transitioned to the Bat Belt. I'm carrying a multitool pouch, a flashlight pouch, and a phone / utility pouch on my left (Duluth Warehouseman's pouch) and a fixed blade knife (Wissahickon Critter) on my right. That's 4 items on my belt already. Haven't even got to my keys or anything else yet. I have found one chair so far that I no longer fit in without shimmying sideways when sitting or standing. I don't know if I can hold out for 30 days but I'll stick it out for as long as I can stand it. I'll just say for now, it's going to take some getting used to. I hope we can get more members to join us.
Now that is a good batbelt effort! There's nothing in the rules about removing the belt for sitting down, though a more tactical quick detach belt may be needed More members would be excellent! Apparently a bunch of folks want to carry around really big SAKs for January The harrassment active recruitment of more participants to join us is always welcome
No reason not to do both, although they can only get one badge. I have my 111 in a pocket of my utility pouch as well. It will probably see use on food prep this month because it is stainless while my fixie is 1095.
DAY 1 (Happy Near Year Awl )So, here is my work Bat-Vest (we prefer not to wear belts due to back strain etc)I was on a particular operation today so the only bit of kit that saw action was the small jigglers (basic lock picks)I can't really take usage shots whilst at work so I'll divulge some of the pouch contents over the coming month Some of the kit is obvious in it's use (I hope )
