firstly EDC = Every Day Carry
I’ve got a secret obsession with these EDC groups. I have always wanted to do one, but as you can see my EDC is not really survivalist enough for the EDC groups of flickr! Its a hybrid of pocket / bag & wearing EDC stuff.
Starting top left a holder for my favourite pen & pencil holder sat on top of my pencil case, my works VPN keyfob it lets me get onto work network via any standard internet connection. ipod sat on top of headphone amp sat on top of a notebook, the notebook is heavy ass paper and the back has fold out pouches that are perfect for keeping things (like receipts in) with a solomon bar knot down the spine. my galaxy s2 mobile phone (i don’t love it like i did my old desire, but it’ll grow on me over the next year or so)
3 dimensionally moving back up is my mini card holding wallet, it only holds a few cards, an ID badge and has a couple of sneaky pockets for paper money. next to that its my old ass works phone that just won’t die! its been dropped, stood on, dropped in puddles, frozen and still it lives on. next to that its hand cleaner foam, not because im overly paranoid about getting flu just because lots of people don’t wash their hands when they’ve been to the loo (dirty gits).
Old faithful clipper lighter, never leave home without it one. wedding ring im not a ring kinda person and i do like strange things, so its a tungsten carbide steel one! swiss army knife, nice short sharp non locking blade, here in the UK its naughty to carry anything else. moving up to the tick tock its a nite MX20, nice rubbery strap, nice clicky bezel & its a great time keeper.
teeny tiny double ended screwdriver with double ended bits in each end, you never know when you’re gonna need a screwie. LED torch, runs from a 14500, AA or CR123 battery its bright as you like and is a cheapo DX copy! menthol nose sniffer thing, i don’t have a cold but they’re brill (i promise, try one!) this one is a cheapo one from home & bargain 79p for 2, the vics ones are 1.99 for 1.
its all sat on top of my works laptop which is with me pretty much everywhere i go. its in its own bag with a plug, several USB cables, phone chargers, A4 pads and more junk that wouldn’t fit in the picture!
maybe if you’re lucky i’ll do a mooching bag dump one day this year, that’ll have much more of a survivalist theme to it, so i might even put that into a real EDC group!
what’s in your bag(s)?
