My "personal" EDC:


When I'm off, wearing blue jeans, which are my staple pants, I carry my...


wallet (contents need not be said)

Motorola Droid 2 (love having a keyboard) with handy apps

keys with remote, ignition key, house key, and apartment key

Kershaw Leek assisted opening knife (fine quality)

Wenger SAK I've had for nearly 20 years or a Leatherman Juice S2 which I got last Christmas (mostly carry this one at work)

Streamlight Microstream

depending on where I'm going/what I'm doing a Ruger LCP in a pocket holster or a Glock 23 concealed on or inside my waistband.


I also habitually wear a wristwatch (Citizen) and a belt. I always wear an undershirt either white cotton (my trademark) or a black UnderArmour compression fit. Destination and weather dictate the outer shirt and footwear (always boots probably nine months a year).

My pocket content isn't what it should be, nor is my EDC. I hate having anything in my pockets unless I'm wearing cargo or tactical pants/shorts. But for the area I live in and generally stay in, it would be enough to get me home or to a safe place.


MY pockets, at the moment:


SOG Twitch II assisted-opening knife

wallet cointaining flat credit-card sized stainless bottle opener and handcuff key

some cash and always a dollar or so in quarters


carabiner on key ring


My EDC ("man-purse" as my wife calls it) (never far away from me, sometimes in my large lunchbox at work):


Fieldline Accessory Pouch with shoulder strap (it's camo, so it's ok)

Glock 23 w/ 1 mag (180 gr Gold Dots)

rechargeable LED tactical-style flashlight

S&W M100 cuffs (not an LEO, but former armed security)

Benchmade CBK (when not on my person)


jigsaw blades (1 metal, 1 wood)

small amount of cash

fingernail clippers w/ nail file

small off-brand leatherman-type tool with pliers, bottle/can openers, etc.


I know it's not perfect, but I add to it periodically, as I remember/am able.

I personally work for DoD so my ability to carry concealed is taken away by the fact that my instilation has Military security. DOesn't make me feel safe enough though. It is very nerve Racking. But i carry light and try and keep it work related so i do not get into trouble.


I have my Tri fold wallet with one of my hand cuff keys in the pocket, 3 hair pins, and 4 small rubber bands, and a small additional SD card. I also carry a small 3" Tanto collapsable knife, change, My keys with a monkey paw on it (Steel Ball Bearing wrapped in Paracord), my phone, two small lighters one in each front pocket, My android Phone, and my belt, sunglasses, and ID lanyard. Sounds like a lot but it all fits in three pockets. Oh and a pack of cigarettes too with an old blank credit card slid into the wrapper.

In my purse, I have:


ID, cash, cards

High intensity LED flashlight (small but effective)


Petroleum based moisturizer/gloss (great for beauty AND for firestarting AND myriad other things)

Keychain set of Philips/flat head screwdrivers

Paper and pen



I should add in some other useful stuff, not a full BOB but more survival-oriented than just the usual detritus.
