EDC 03/2014

I obsess about the stuff I carry on my person even more than the stuff I carry around in my bag. This is what I currently carry.

You can see older iterations here, if there are any.

  • Handkerchief
  • Phone (Nexus 5 w/EFF sticker)
  • Saddleback Leather Wallet
  • Calling Cards
  • Part of the EFF sticker back; reads: Say it out loud: “I want an attorney” and “I invoke my right to remain silent.”
  • Credit card-sized folding phone stand (been carrying it for years; can’t remember where it came from)
  • Keychain
    • TEC P-7 clip (I LOVE this thing. It’s all the advantage of carrying a lanyard on your keys w/o looking like a goon while it hangs out of your pocket.)
    • S-biner
    • Swiss Army Knife w/pen & flashlight
    • Ear plugs in a cash stash
    • Keys
    • USB Stick
    • Happiness opener
  • Watch
  • Notebook; reads: PLEASE Do the right thing
  • Fisher Space Pen
  • Chapstick
