I’m listening to the Clockwise podcast, and the bonus topic is “What indispensable piece of non-tech do you carry every day?” The answers were a water bottle, a special kind of wallet, a microfiber cloth, and a nail clipper.”
I realize that the people on the tech podcasts generally don’t intersect with the people on my gun podcasts, but I was amazed that none of them said a pocketknife.
I started thinking about my EDC. So, for 2018, my current EDC:
I use a Saddleback Large Leather wallet.. I keep one of those credit card multi-tools inside it.
This is one of those Maxpedition pocket pouches that I stash useful stuff: 1. First aid kit – needs a tourniquet, but decent for handling minor issues 2. Trauma shears – small pair for cutting bandages and clothes 3. Bic disposal lighter 4. Tweezers 5. Lightning to 3.5 mm adapter 6. Anker lipstick battery 7. Short lightning cable 8. Spare CR123 and AAA batteries 9. Reusable twist ties 10. Lightning to micro USB adapter 11. 32GB flash drive 12. Emergency cash
Currently, I’m carrying a Leatherman Skeletool. It’s a bit “friendlier” for some of the areas I go.
Currently, I have an older Streamlight ProTac. I want to upgrade to one of the new ones. Must have all the lumenz!
I’ve got a little Sabre canister
Currently, I’m using a pair of Apple AirPods. Expensive, but worth the cost IMHO
I’m using an iPhone 8. I have the 256 model because I cram it with audiobooks.
I’m using a Series 1 Apple Watch, but will probably upgrade sometime this year.
Either an S&W M&P or CRKT tactical pen.
Unless I’m going to someplace I’m not legally allowed to carry, I generally have my first gen M&P9 with at least 1 spare magazine.
