My humble EDC - it works for me.

Buck Vantage - 420 HC works for my budget, fits way low into the pocket
Leatherman Blast
Zippo lighter (I like fire)
Keychain - Leatherman Micra
               - True Firestash
               - Flash Drive - encrypted backup of all personal data, and it's handy
Forgot to include - AA LED Maglight

An updated Copy of my EDC (All this is on me except the Pistol while at work as we are not allowed).



TSP Challenge Coin (Cuz I am always in the mood for a free cup of coffee ;) )
Ruger P85, 15 +1 (Sometimes I carry a spare mag but most of the time its just the 15 shots, I figure if I can't stop a threat with 15 shots of +p 124 G JHP's, then I'm doing something wrong LOL)
Ink pen that is always on my shirt, (I have a duplicate inside the black notebook case).
Black notebook case contains a couple zip-lock bags, and a write-in-the-rain notebook and a spare $20 (or sometimes $50 if I have the extra).
Pepper spray (For work, since I can't carry at work).
On the pepper spray is a loose wrapped 15 or so feet of paracord that acts as a drawstring to get the pepper spray out of my pocket, as well as just extra for when needed.
Leatherman Charge ALX in the heavy duty leather sheath (The Leather sheath is a MUST)
A CRKT M21-14SFG Folding knife.  TOUGH great EDC Knife.  I use the hell out of this thing.
Wallet
Casio SGW-100B Watch
HTC Touch Pro 2 Smart phone (With more apps than I can even begin to name LOL)
carabiner clip water bottle holder (this is on the keychain but goes on my belt when I carry a water bottle
Pelican 2360 Flashlight.  A cheaper alternative to the expensive tactical's that is bright enough yet cheap enough to not worry about.  2 - AA batteries.
Key-chain contains a Scout Firesteel (Unbelievably good fire starter THANKS KIMBERTAC for the gift).
Also on the key-chain is a TSP SAK Trecker (non serrated)  (Another great knife/tool)
3 small carabiner clips because they are just so handy
30 foot of paracord in a beavertail
Childs indestructible liquid filled compass (gift from a very special group of 4 to 6 year old's so I carry it on me always to find my way home)

I've got two EDC groups.  One regular one, and a work-oriented sheeple-friendly version.  Here's normal version:



And this is the sheeple-friendly version:

Okay here are my EDC items... This all fits in my bag (with a laptop, notebook, lunch and 1-3 books amongst other things; I've got the packing down pat at this point :) The preps weighs about 7-8lbs, but I walk to work everyday and am so used to carrying it everywhere that it really doesn't lead to any fatigue or irritation.


Maxpedition gearslinger bag:



2 small molle velcro pouches hold all my edc stuff:



Smaller pouch is first aid:

4oz burn free
MRE water heater
2x hot hands hand warmers
2x breath of life emergency masks
various gauze / tape / dressings
quikclot trauma dressing
quikclot 1st response dressing
sutures
alcohol sanitizer
tincture of iodine (good for wounds and water treatment)
superglue (poor man's stitches - this has saved me hundreds on stupid ER visits :)
tweezers / scissors / razors / etc
ibuprofen / percocet / anti-diahreal / anti-histamine / aspirin
1x box extra contacts / eye cleansers


Larger pouch is general utility:

granola bars & instant coffee
plastic bags
hunting/fishing license
AA/AAA batteries
2x lighters
4x matches
2x firestarters
1x inferno flint
100ft paracord
1x pair dress shoe laces
1x pair boot laces
1x extra mag + 8x extra .380 rounds
mini blade sharpener
smith&wesson tactical LED flashlight
sewing kit
min roll duct tape
10x monocle
leatherman multi-tool
smith & wesson swat auto-opener knife
corkscrew + bottle opener
mophie powerpack for laptop / iphone / usb devices
various peripheral cords


and of course, the EDC items that I keep on my body everyday:

gerber xenon light + larue armadillo opener on keychain
benchmade ruckus knife
ruger LCP .380
homemade paracord bracelet
bic lighter (they last forever!)
iPhone 4
berts bees (good for chap lips and a variety of other random topical uses)

and the most important carry-along - the macallan 18 ;)


When sprawled out it sure looks like a lot, but it's been added over time and after a few instances where this stuff really came in handy and I've learned to value it highly. Enjoy!  8)

New to prepping so advice is welcome.  Also anyone from the Pittsburgh area?  Thanks and merry Christmas!

Why the dog whistle? Is there a secondary purpose for it? or do you use as intended for training dogs.

Every day, where-ever I go, whatever I do, this stuff is always on me



Pistol is an NP3'd HK USP45 Expert w/ 2 spare NP3'd mags
Flashlight is a Surefire CombatLight (pre-Z2 designation) w/ 120 Lumen incandescent lamp and shock-resistant bezel
Leatherman Wave
Custom Emerson Folder
Basic Zippo
Crackberry w/ Bluetooth Jawbone

The Professor

Well, I recently looked back upon this thread and realized that I'd made a couple of changes in the past two years.

Here is my current daily carry:

Not much has changed:



H&K USP 45 Expert
2 Mags
Zippo
Custom Emerson Folder

I have changed my Daily flashlight, though.  I recently switched to the FirstLight Tomahawk after having a few excellent opportunities to beat the heck out of it and use it under some very trying conditions.  It fits into my regular light-carrying holsters, so there was really no major changes to anything else.

You'll also notice that my Leatherman Wave is missing and I'm now carrying a Spyderco Endura. I haven't been using the Wave, very much, so it's been relegated to my man-purse (a Maxpedition Jumbo S-type Versipack).  The Endura now rides clipped to my off-hand pocket and is a dedicated "defensive knife" (i.e., it doesn't get used to cut open boxes, etc.).


One thing I've gone to recently is carrying a different pistol for more formal, dressy-type functions.  There's absolutely nothing wrong with my USP.  I consider it quite handsome.  But, sometimes, you just want to have something with a little more "Cool" factor.  Certain people, if they see it, will understand.   You young'uns probably wouldn't get the reference, or the "coolness" of this pistol.  For me, it's right up there, just above the Devel and the ASP. 



Detonics Combat Master .45 ACP
2 Wilson P47 mags
Surefire Z2 LED Flashlight
Emerson Custom Folder
Gerber EDK
Custom Neck-knife (dedicated "defensive" knife).

And for those who are curious, the Detonics has a custom-made Alessi, Bruce-Nelson-inspired, hip holster and mag case.  The wife absolutely refuses to be seen with me in my (original) Milt Sparks Six-Pack (and yes, I have it's sequentially-numbered matching brother along with a custom-made double-Allessi Shoulder Rig).  It is an original Detonics (Seattle, WA), not a New Detonics, "Ahern" Detonics or Detonics Defense.

Sometimes, you just gotta put on the bling.

The Professor

(Oh, and yes, I still do carry a cellphone, in my case it's a Samsung Infuse in a Ballistic-brand Hardcase w/ rubber protector. It's not in the photos because it takes better pictures than my older digital camera.)


Oh, and FWIW, I'll carry this to gunshows and to Prep Expos. . .just for the awesome esoteric reference purpose.
On "The List" since 1994.  Isn't it about time YOU got on The List?

Yeah, that's right. . ."Professor EMERITUS!"  Now, pardon me while I show up "late" for. . .uh. . .work.

For the iphone the otter box works well for protecting impacts. Mine fell out a second story window onto a concrete driveway a year ago and its still working fine. Don't let the "otter" part fool ya though cause its not a great waterproofer.

This is my EDC Chain, it's basically a wallet chain with the stuff i use everyday,  I have a mini pocket screwdriver, a bic lighter, A mini LED flashlight, and a bottle opener.  On the leather strap i had a can of pepperspray that hung at belt level on a quick release, however it popped off and i lost it,  The rest of my EDC not pictured is my I-phone (Used it to take the picture)  and i forgot to snap a pic of my small Ozark Trail pocket knife i picked up at walmart on the cheap,  If anyones got any ideas on how to better secure pepperspray so it can hang at my belt level, but still pull off quick while being secure LMK im open to Ideas.

I have a 6 inch paracord pull string tied to my pepper spray, it is in my pocket with the cord hanging out.  I just tug on the cord and it comes out in my hand.  I have 2 pair of jeans that have the "Painters" pocket on the thigh for paint brushes, the bottle sits in one and the paracord pull tucks into the lower one so its handy without dangling.  Works great.

Here's my current EDC.  I'd add a handgun is there was any way that I could get a carry permit.



Left front pocket:
Money clip/wallet
Leatherman Freestyle (below wallet)

Right rear pocket
Memo Mate notepad (the green aluminum thing with the pen)

Left rear pocket
cell phone (Tracfone LG800g)

Right front pocket
Gerber Ripstop I
Keyring (green capsule contains spare cash)

The pouch (in coat pocket or cargo pants pocket)
Maxpedition Micro pocket organizer
Left side
Rite in the rain notepad
Burt's Bees lip balm
Leatherman Style CS
Fisher Space Pen ST
Emergency whistle

Right side
Bic lighter
Tech Tool LED flashlight/fire steel
Ziploc baggie with bandaids, alcohol wipes, Neosporin, dental floss

Still to add:
Better single AA or AAA flashlight
OTC medications

dollarbill, how do you like that Gerber Dime?  I thought about that when I got the Leatherman Style, but I wanted the spring loaded scissors on the Leatherman.

That's a hell of a kit, fritz!  If I could get away with cargos at work I might try to be similarly set up, but dress slacks look pretty odd with overstuffed pockets.

A couple lights worth putting on your list to check out are the Sunwayman V10A and V20A.  The V10A is their single AA version and the V20A is their double AA version.  I've owned many lights in my day and finally settled on the V10R, which uses one CR123 (or RCR123).  The features that stand out to me is:
Physical protection to reverse polarity (if you put the battery in backwards it doesn't work vs. burning out the circuit)
Infinite variability from zero to max light with a dial adjust
Forward clicky on switch, so you can use the momentary on feature for tactical situations
Reversible clip that actually stays on (at tail cap to keep it high in your pocket or reversed so it can be clipped onto your hat brim as a headlamp (a feature I'm absolutely thrilled with))
Can be stood on its tail for room illumination
Incredible battery life in lower settings (up to 40 hours on a single AA battery, up to 100 hours with a 2 AA batteries)
Can be used with a variety of batteries including rechargeables and lithium

Just one that's worth a look.

If you want itty-bitty, consider the Fenix LD01.  It's a twist on, but has a low, mid and high beam you can cycle through.  Despite using only a single AAA battery, the lowest setting allows up to a 27 hour battery life (if you get the 72 lumen model.  The 85 lumen model only has an 11 hour battery life on the lowest setting).  It also has a great reversible clip that holds it on the brim of your hat.

Just a few to think about.

Thanks, Endurance.  I'll take a look at that Sunwayman, I just have issues paying over $50 for a single AA flashlight.  I have been looking at the Fenix lights, especially the 72 lumen model.

“There is no such thing as pure good or pure evil, least of all in people. In the best of us there are thoughts or deeds that are wicked, and in the worst of us, at least some virtue. An adversary is not one who does loathsome acts for their own sake. He always has a reason that to him is justification. My cat eats mice. Does that make him bad? I don't think so, and the cat doesn't think so, but I would bet the mice have a different opinion.”
