I haven't posted on here in a really long time, and I have never posted my b.o.b. or e.d.c. I was repacking them today so I thought I'd take some pictures. Please let me know what you think, also I will be listing items that are not pictured and future items I do not own yet which seems to be a never ending list lol. BTW sorry for the crappy quality photos.
Anyway here we go. First my pocket dump. This is my carry when I am not at work.
It doesn't change much when I am at work, but here you go.
G-shock watch, black cobra stitch paracord bracelet, t-mobile galaxy s2, 'Wisconsin Explorers' carabiner with keys and tiny flashlight from target (just like the streamlight, works great and it was $2), truck keys with paracord keyfob, cardholder, money clip, cheap mtech tanto, pilot g2 pen, oakley gas cans, field notebook, HID card.
WANT TO ADD: Leatherman Wingman, and 5.11 ATAC L2 flashlight.
WANT TO REPLACE: folding knife to a kershaw cryo.
Okay now on to my E.D.C bag
Its a cheaper replica from an army surplus but I have had it for almost 2 years with no issues. Replaced the zipper pulls with neon green paracord and added the green paracord to internal zipper pocket for easy view.
FRONT POCKET: skull candy earbuds, husky screwdriver set, bic lighter, ear plugs, bandana, red and blue uniball, KRINK marker, shooting glasses, small store bought F.A.K, added a few more bandaids, a couple of masks, and safety pins. also victronix S.A.K.
TOP FRONT POCKET: contact solution, contact case, and rewetting drops. Usually have extra contacts but I need to get more.
MIDDLE POCKET: Samsung netbook, charger, cell phone wall charger, car charger (sometimes I use the work truck and need to charge my phone), and a micro SD adapter.
MAIN POCKET and internal zipper pocket: Sketchbook, 2 extra field notebooks, work handbook, wet ones, kleenex, powerbar, 3 natures valley bars, Tylenol, feminine hygiene wipes (YES I AM A GIRL
), 5 tampons, hand sanitizer, and deodorant.
oh and I almost forgot...
my nalgene which sits in the main compartment of the bag or gets clipped to the outside.
WANT TO ADD: Wisps toothbrushes, socks and underwear (I usually have them in there but not right now apparently), extra cash, bus routes, city map, USB with important documents (still deciding if its worth it), packable rain jacket, emergency radio, cell phone 'quick' charger, small (keychain size) prybar, duct tape wrapped card, antacids, pocket reference book, extra batteries, and thinking about a battery operate glow stick. ALSO: I work as a security guard and where I work they use 100% concentrate ammonia for their refrigiration systems does anyone no of a respirator that can withstand that in case of a chem spill?!
WANT TO UPGRADE: the pack itself I like the maxpediton pygmy falcon 2 in royal blue, or the 5.11 12 or 24 bags.
