What do you EDC???
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 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???

The tins have similar stuff but the larger one has more. I probably have more packed in them than I can remember. Yes I carry two because they fit nicely in my pocket.
It sounds like a lot but everything is light and compact and I use it all.
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.
yep just like a sheep
maby a lighter lol
1858 Remington New Army .44
"I never drew first, but I drew first blood. I'm the devil's son, call me Young Gun"
Epitaph found on Headstone
Four slugs from a .44, no less, no more"
EDC not including pens, cash, keys and other mundanes or what's in the Saddleback leather laptop bag.
Glock 27 .40 with +1.
Bianchi IWB 35
SOG Flash II
LED with strobe
The shemagh under it all stays in the bag or around my neck depending.
Tomorrow when the light is better I'll get some shots of what I carry in the bag, Saddleback Leather, they really will outlive you. (not a salesman, just a believer/owner)
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".

Taurus PT-111 Millenium Pro & Extra Magazine
Spyderco Military or Benchmade 710

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.
