Hello Gents,I'm curious how you guys protect your mobile electronic devices (if you do so at all.)  I recently upgraded to an iPhone.  I know, I'm extremely late to the party.  But anyways, when I…Continue

Unnecessary EDC?

Started by Beowulf87. Last reply by John Lee Pettimore Feb 12. 31 Replies

So here's a quick little thought.  How many of you practice unnecessary EDC?  By this I mean, how many of you carry an object that you have no real practical need for?  Not a knife, not your wallet,…Continue

I have long carried an A.T. Cross pen and pencil set.  However, the last set I purchased was made in China and while the pen is ok the pencil is a piece of junk.  Does anyone have any suggestions for…Continue

Hello everyone!

As a Soldier in the US Army, I have A LOT of pockets that I typically use, so I'll keep it down to the everyday kit:

Lower left (ankle area) pocket: miniature Orthodox Bible (New Testament and Psalms).

Lower Right: "Western Style" long leather wallet (perfect for ACU use)

Right cargo: Prayer rope

Left Cargo: Sunglasses

Both "normal" pockets change on a daily basis

Right shoulder pocket: Mustache scissors, comb, and mustache comb.

Right Breast: ID card

My first post in this group, so I might as well get it out now.  Can I get an "amen" that these items will ALWAYS return to their assigned pockets on a day-to-day basis?!?!

- Right hip pocket: car keys, knife, switchblade mustache comb

- Left hip pocket: phone, eye drops (as of late--allergies)

- Back right pocket: leather wallet

- Small Surefire KL1 tactical flashlight, front left pocket.

- Leather wallet, back left pocket.

- Small leatherbound notebook for tracking things, back right pocket.

- Pencil in the front shirt pocket.

- Smith and Wesson mod 642, .38spl revolver, front right pocket.

- Fire department pager, on belt.

These are my every day, any occasion items that are always with me.

I don't usually carry a whole lot of stuff:
Insulin pump
Cell phone
Kahr CW9

Have invested in a Maxpedition Fat Boy Versapack so I can start carrying a glucometer in order to keep better control of my blood sugar.

Kyle - with a stag, or bone handle, that's a great choice. I carry a Case Stockman. One of the smaller Opinel (#7 or #8) are nice too - they are a late 1890s pattern, pretty much unchanged.

I came across this group by accident and was intrigued by the name.  Who would have thought that someone would think of a group like this.  I guess in a way it makes perfect sense.   Since the majority of us don't carry a "murse" and usually not a briefcase, all we have left are our pockets.   I am pretty picky about what I put in my pocket.  In the past I carried a small pocket knife but found if a hole formed I would lose it.  So now I don't tend to unless I am wearing a blazer or jeans.  Dress pants are not good for pocket knives.  I have a very slim wallet, a business card holder and my Moleskine.  Very seldom do I carry change.  Unfortunately I still wear a phone case on my belt.   A handkerchief in my back pocket.   My life is still undergoing a transformation as I lost my wife a few months ago.  I am trying to re-establish places to keep my everyday carry.   Feel free to check out my web site.
