Hey everybody, I am new to the site and I was sitting thinking about what a man should carry on a day to day basis. Here are some essential things I carry every day and I wanted to know what you all…Continue
"I don't believe cars have every lost their manliness. Honestly, I think the public appeal has simply shifted to motorcycles and bikes, however, I do think working on cars is completely manly. There are a lot of men who don't know how to…"
"That's a pretty decent list. As others have said, be sure to check out the Everyday Carry group. We can always use some fresh blood over there.
As far as the fundamental list goes, here's mine:
1. Wallet - cash, ID, etc.
"1. Pocket Knife (SOG Spec Elite is my personal favorite of the many I own)
2. Wallet (debit/credit card, DL, FOID card, Military ID, occasionally cash)
3. Keys (house, car, work safe key)
4. iPhone (this is not a necessity, but…"
"1) Flashlight and one set spare batteries. I carry a Surefire Fury with dual output, 120 lumens and 500 lumens on full setting
2) Wallet with cash, cards, ID and pertinent contact cards should you get in a bind (Lawyer, that one friend to…"
"wallet - homemade from tyvek (fedex envelope) and leather, thin and works well, about $50 cash (that my kids use up about every 3 weeks), credit/bank cards, id - I keep the library card number on the cell phone - they accept it
cell phone - (apps:…"
"Your list seems overly, and purposefully, complex.
Here's what I carry:
*Card holder that holds DL, 1x Credit Card, 1x Debit Card, and $53 exactly.
* Opinel no.6
* Parker Pen
* Leather Key Fob that has car key, and one…"
"Perhaps he wishes to use the handgun?
Flashing a wad of an apparent money clip of $2,000 makes sense in terms of fishing for conflict.
Would that could be premeditated murder OR standing one's ground as long as you shoot the person and…"
"Am I the only one that finds that his phone is trying to take the place of many of the things I used to carry?
In principle, I need no longer carry:
a USB key
my keychain flashlight
most of the cards in my wallet
pen and notepad
"I carry an all-in-one tool set and a good knife. The tool set comes in handy for not looking helpless when something needs to be fixed on short notice. The knife comes in handy in a variety of situations.
I'm a dad, plus when I am out at my…"
"Wow... that list is a little full on...
Wallet- less than 50, Credit Card, Debit Card, Medicare and Private health cards. thats about it. some coins for church or charity.
phone- phone, note taker etc....
keys- house, car, scouts and usb key
"I think the logical answer to 'What should every man carry on a daily basis?' Is exactly what he needs. And every man should be competent enough in his own life to be able to figure out what that is. I'm not a big fan of this tick…"
"Wallet with basics.
Cash as deemed necessary to the situation; rarely over $50. I'll often go weeks without having to open my wallet for cash.
Car and house keys.
Phone, but not always.
No watch. Unless I am at work, volunteering or have…"
Been a lurker here at AoM for years. Decided to become a member a few weeks ago and thought I'd introduce myself. The community has been great so far. It adds to the AoM experience quite a bit. Anyway, my name is Landon. I'm not much use physically thanks to a type of tumor I have, so I like to work on my mind rather than my body. Some of my favorite articles from AoM are Ben Franklin's 13 virtues and the 3-part series about willpower, how it's depleted and how you can strengthen it. Well,…See More
