It varies.right now. One of two Maxpedition versipacks or Arcteryx fanny packs or an Arcteryx day pack. I just transfer the contents: PSK,FAK, food, water, cordage and weapon of choice for that day depending on where I'm going.

My daily carry is generally a high-quality folding knife and equally high-quality multi-tool. Three Ws: Wallet, watch, wireless phone, a fourth W! A wrench. A small, original Crescent Brand Crestalloy Crescent Wrench, keychain size. Secondary keys have that wrench on it, primary has a large locking D carabiner.

Anything else falls into the category of carry when needed or fall back to vehicular kit. During the winter I generally carry the above and include, at the absolute minimum, a Doug Ritter Survival Pak. If I am carrying a messenger bag or Maxpedition of some type or another, I carry more comprehensive things that are added due to inclement weather or the threat of same, etc.

If you have kit(s) in your vehicle, you have to be very careful about that. I mean, unless you are wealthy then it is no big deal really. You can replace as needed.

I cannot tell you how many people I have read about over the years on forums who had the vehicle broken into or stolen outright and their major, most excellent gear is gone forever.

I have a small Eagle brand OD Green hydration pack that I am working on as a dedicated car kit. Since all of us in the family have much better and larger packs, this seemed to be the sacrificial pack to place in the trunk of the car for emergencies.

Likewise, stuff that goes into it will be essentials and nothing that won't hurt too badly should it be stolen.

I have a BOB in the vehicle with advanced supplies if I needed them so I go pretty simple with my EDC. A Spyderco clipped in my pocket. An LED flashlight. And a Multitool. I keep a few bandaids in a cargo pocket of my pants because I get scraped and nicked occasionally and have needed them. Also have a cell phone.

I don't worry too much about the BOB in my van. I keep it in the cargo compartment which isn't accessible from the cab. A smash and grab might get my GPS unit, but they'd have a hard time getting into the cargo compartment. They'd have no reason to try anyway, since they can look through the windows and see that it's empty. I have a pistol safe in the cab, bolted to the floor. Sometimes it has a pistol in it, sometimes not.

Chains keep us together.

I live in a small town and can walk to any point in less than 30 min so my EDC is very basic. My BOB is my EDC bag but i do keep some spairs in the trunk, mainly a small med kit, spair cloths and boots, poncho, and some water. My EDC is designed to get me home while in town within a few hours. If i'm going out of town i grab my bag and rifle and throw it in. Thank god i live in a city that i can walk around with an uncased(yes..mine is cased) AK and nobody cares.

Funny story, i was comming back from a range trip and had my rifle in its bag and pistol on my hip. On my way to my front door my rifle somehow slipped out of the bag and landed behind me. Right as an police officer was driving by i picked it up and was doing a function check. needless to say he stopped so i put it back on the ground and put my pistol on the ground next to it and stepped back. he gave me a funny look and then kinda laughed and said he was just stopping to ask where i got it b/c he wants After about an hour long convo about the extreamly under estimated AK, he left. I love my town.

Do you keep it with you?

Those of you who say the you carry Maxpediton shoulder bags. Do you carry it with you all the time? Or leave it in your car? I guess I am really confused about those who say they have an EDC. I know that I have my pocket full all the time and still don't have what I would like to carry. I was looking at something like the LAPG gear organizer to keep things in. Any suggestions?

No sane person carries all of that all of the time. Unless you are carrying it around in the car and then it is not EDC, that is a BOB.


Cell phone
Keltec p3at in the pocket
Wallet with CCards, ccw and id
keys with SAK/container with meds and ferro rod
$$$ in a Gerber moneyclip/utility blade

I forgot about the paracord braided belt. 90 feet of cord with an exacto blade woven in.
