Talking What do you EDC???

Advertise Here

This is my EDC System

Located in the front pocket of my SwissGear Fanny Pack
-2 Zebra Expandable pens
-1 Mini Sharpie
-1 business Card holder
-1 change purse

Located in the back "main" pocket of my SwissGear Fanny Pack
-1 Notepad
-1 Streamlight Scorpion LED
-1 Leatherman Charge ALX
-1 Fox40 Whistle
-1 Cheapo Compass
-1 Spyderco Delica 4
-5 or 6 band aids
-1 gauze roll
-1 toothpick wrapped in label paper backing holding Medical tape
-1 toothpick wrapped in label paper backing holding duct tape
-2 backup CR123As for my flashlight (note shown)

On a Carabiner attached to the strap
-1 Res-Q-me vehicle rescue tool

Items held elsewhere on my person
-1 Cheapo Carhart wallet
-1 Motorola VA76r cell phone.

A few upgrades that are coming soon to make this system more portable include...
-Streamlight Stylus Pro
-LM Juice S2
-Maxpedition Versipack OCTA (because of the molle webbing to add the following pouch)
-Maxped CP-M Cell phone case

The Stylus pro is a better light than the original stylus by streamlight but is more compact so it is a great value for it's size. I'm streamlining some of my kit to make it something that is comfortable to carry 95% of the time or better. The LM Juice S2 is a smaller more compact tool that will allow me many of the same tools as my Charge ALX but in a more compact tool. Both of the bigger items that are being replaced are going to be integrated into my EDC bag that will be with me most of the time should I need more screwdrivers from the LM Charge ALX or a more powerful light from the LED Scorpion. I need to order a new pocket clip for my D4, the original broke. I'm thinking of the Maxpedition Versipack Jumbo for this EDC bag because it has the Molle webbing to add stuff to my kit for easy access while giving me a decent amount of room for basic every day items that will come in handy. All the while if I leave the Jumbo in the car or at my desk I'll still have basic tools in the OCTA on me at all times. The only reason you don't see a gun anywhere is the fact that in Canada unless the gun is for your job you can't carry one.
If someone could tell me about a good compact EDC Self Defense knife I'd be grateful. I will worry about if it is legal in my area when I see what is proposed. I call my lawyer

So what do you guys EDC???

I always have on me. Smith and Wesson 340 Ti .357 Mag in pocket holster and 2 speed strips, Surefire Lumamax L4 Light, Spyderco Military Folder, keys- small compass and p-38 can opener on Carbiner, Wallet, and $300 cash hidden, small lightweight Mike Sanders Custom Pocket Knife, one or two Mont Blanc rollerball pens, spare truck key (in case of lock out), Cell Phone. I sometimes substitute the S&W 340 for a Glock 27 with a spare mag in 2 pocket holsters. The BOB is in the truck, or I have another "Get Home Bag" and clothing at work.

ok guys- Remember I am from Australia and our gun culture isnt quite up there with yours. So the people that reported they carry the gun at all times- do you really mean AT ALL TIMES?

ie - oh - feel like getting a DVD and some takeaway.. better not leave the house without my gun. -- is that how it is?

I just cant get my head around that kinda thinking. Call me unprepared or an optimist but yeah.. just don't get it.

While the odds against you being a victim of violent crime are high, if you happen to be that 1 in 15,000 well, if your defense was the odds are against it vs carrying the ability to actually defend ones self, I'd rather be carrying than betting I won't be "the one".

Well, at least the OP didn't say he carried.
On another site everyone has a Glock. It's like they pass them out as you post.
And no, I don't have a Glock.
Can't carry at work and don't want gun in car to worry about being stolen.


daily prep plans, edc, every day carry, what do you carry, what do you edc
