Day 27

Quite a few rotations today with the LM Bond, Explorer Plus, Lumintop Tool AA 2.0, Olight O'Pen mini, and the Twisted Assisted trad in carbon fibre all swapping in. The first picture shows how I carry a lot of the time off challenge, a circular light rests well enough between organised tools to not go off on its own in my pocket.

That is a nice organizer. 

I started the challenges with my organizer pouch that combines exterior slot pockets and zippered pouch, but then went to a separate zipper pouch with a slot organizer.  I like that better because it is less bulky in the pocket.  The zipper pouch is even small enough to comfortably fit in a front pocket if desired.

Single 18650 battery, reasonably bright, and not hideously expensive. Is there such a thing?
Definitely.  I’ll send you a few ideas in a pm.

Thanks! I like this set up for carrying the main set of tools (sometimes the small pen gets swapped for a Rovyvon clipped to the sleeve). I saw you have a pouch with a a zipper that kind of curved around at the end of travel, how do you like it?

Sorry, I'm not gearedforwards, but I answer nonetheless.  :whistle:

That's an Atomlight Micro LED from the UK producer polymathproducts. Works with a tiny coin cell, gives decent light in the nearfield for its size, and glows after being used.
Best regards and stay safe,

Wolfgang

It is nice because it gives you a better view of what is in the pouch and therefore makes it easier to grab exactly what you want.

Day 30

It's been a  fun ride despite being a bit fo a hectic month, this was slightly more than I would carry consistently but not by much. My main issue I'm looking forward to not having is wearing a watch this consistently. I enjoy it (and the ABC functions) when out but I work from home and am pretty much a hermit since covid, wearing a watch when you type for a living isn't always great. It's been a blast though and I'm glad so many of you opted to come along on this journey!



Closing it out with the new Olight Arcfeld creeping into my carry, so far a little odd but very compelling light.

Right you lot, it's that time! The GAW for this challenge is a complete EDC tool set (though not as expansive as the challenge requirements!). The list of those that finished is above, now containing the appropriate amount of energised carbohydrates, and our winner is...

Man I started really using MTO too late  :oops:, but this would’ve been a fun challenge… lots of great loadouts here. I think I’ve got just about everything on the list, except my collection is still growing and I would’ve just carried virtually the same thing everyday.  I’ll be on the lookout for the next one!

There's a list of challenges that are scheduled for the year at the top of the General tool forum so you can see what is planned.  There are several going on this month and you can always start late and finish late if you want to join in or you can start any challenge on your own at any time.  It's usually more fun with a group though.  The full list of challenges is listed in your profile under awards then under available awards.

 :iagree:

They are fun to participate in as well as follow.  This was a neat one for sure.  As Alan said take a look at what is going on challenge wise and drop in on one.  Ask any questions are we'll be happy to guide you.  They are fun with a group but if theres one you cannot wait to do go for it.
