I didn't mention the IFAK and CLS bag, good point. I have the NVD and a helmet mounted surefire I forgot. As far as a multitool, the Izula carries what I need most, a blade. The the full load that is not EDC (72Hr bag) is a lot more comprehensive.

My EDC is my purse (http://canada.roots.com/ThePocketbookPr ... color=2600" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;). it contains money, antacids, analgesics, a couple of lighters, a cell phone, hand sanitizer and/or baby wipes, cough candies and this nifty little gadget (http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/tools/b881/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;). it has a whistle, flint and steel and a wee little knife/saw (the whistle has served its purpose once so far and little saw has come in handy on more occasions than i can count).

LF- BM benchmite, keys
LR- wallet full of cards, minimal cash, my business cards, spare truck key, car ins, commercial liability ins, etc
RR- Copenhagen
RF- loose change, metal vial full of pills (imitrex, fiornal, ralpax etc. all scripts on one label in wallet)
RF (fob) officers 1911 mag

On belt, 2 o'clock - officers 1911 in MS Versamax tucked. 3 oclock - tape measure. 9oclock in holster by local maker, streamlight stinger, BM activator. clipped to collar on inner t-shirt - pen, soapstone, sharpie. t-shirt pocket- samsung galaxy and spiral top notepad.
Most of my overshirts either get the pockets sewn closed or removed. I am cheap, I refuse to pay for expensive 'welding' shirts. Good cotton long sleeved button down shirts at goodwill/st vincents are usually .25-.75 each in the summer and I buy all that are even remotely close to my size. wash once and soak in starch, line dry and you have a spark resistant shirt.

Lighter (known as a stoner since I don't smoke cigarettes, yet I've never touched weed)
whatever combination of knife/multitool I feel like grabbing.

Then in my backpack I keep a 200lm flashlight I got at Costco.

A pill bottle with aspirin and a few other pain pills like exedrin, a few allergy pills.

Extra batteries of all common sizes.

Some paracord in case I get bored. Lol.

That'd be all I can think of off hand
