Since I know you are all just dying to know what I carry on my person every day to deal with those pesky gremlins that pop up every now and again, I thought I'd go ahead and post it up for all to see. If you're still with me, the following is my EDC in all of it's majesty.
This is everything together in one shot. Not pictured are a 32oz. Nalgene bottle, my cell phone, an Altoids tin pulling duty as a cigarette case, and my wallet.
Going clockwise, we have a Gerber Multitool (I forget the model, I've had it for over five years now) and accompanying bit set, a CRKT M16-10KZ folding knife, and a AA Maglite with Nite-Ize LED upgrade. This particular group of kit (particularly being secured in a Nite-Ize Pock-Its XL) is what gets me called Batman from time to time. I'm pretty happy with all of these, but I am looking to upgrade the multitool as I have managed to break several of the inner bits over the years, mostly by prying with things which were not designed to pry. Probably the Leatherman Charge TTi. Wouldn't mind upgrading to a Surefire too (been looking at the 6PD Defender), but I digress. Onwards, then.
Here we have, from left to right, a Molleskin notebook, a Zebra F-701 pen, and a Zippo case lighter with leather belt holster. I'm pretty certain the pen and notebook are heavily influenced from my time in the Navy. The same could be said of the Zippo (being a smoker does it's part as well). Seriously though, it really irks me that most people don't carry something to write with. Moving on.
Here, from top to bottom (Is all this direction-changing keeping you on your toes?) are my keys, notable only because of the nifty Nite-Ize S-Biner with which I attach them to my belt loop, and a Mini-Bic in the C4 case for when the Zippo runs out of steam (or lighter fluid, whichever the case may be).
That just about sums it up. Nothing grandiose but they do help with aforementioned daily gremlins. I didn't go into great detail as per the function of every item, but my assumption is that they are fairly intuitive. If, however, I have assumed incorrectly (as I am wont to do), do feel free to direct your inquiries and/or comments (flames?) below.
