    Site says I don't have enough posts to "import" photos from a hosting then I'll just type it out...

    Right front, S&W M&P Shield .40 w/ the 6 round mag in a custom made black leather holster.
    Left front, truck keys (has a p-38 can opener on it) and a Swiss Army Officer's knife
    My belt is a braided paracord belt with roughly 90' of cord in it. I made this belt about 2 1/2 years ago and it's showing a good bit of wear. In my Nite-ize pouch there is a Leatherman Wave, a 175 lumen flash light, a magnesium/ferro bar, a steel, a piece of flint, a small terminating screw driver and in the back is a micro altoids tin with char cloth, fish hooks, fishing line, dental floss and a few snares.

    It is interesting to look at old posts, and see if things have changed. Mine is essentially the same: S&W 642; Gerber folder; wallet; Chapstick; handkerchief; comb; money clip. My butane lighter died, so I carry a Zippo.

    I have added a Fenix mini flashlight, and a Fox 40 whistle to my key ring.

    Actually not much in my pockets, but I'm seldom far from a "life jacket". A life jacket is pretty much a BOB/coat with IT's pockets loaded.

    I won't bore you with ALL the details, but

    on me:
    • Leatherman Wave (pinches me in plier mode, but still)
    • bandana
    • cell phone
    • (fountain) pen(s)
    • watch (analog)

    (after actually doing an little excavating in the nooks and crannies of it)
    in bookbag:
    • First Aid items--hand sanitizer, band aids, Q-tips, toothbrush & tooth paste, CPR barrier
    • all-in-one bike type bike tool (mostly a bunch of allen wrenches, with some other items too)
    • an 'ultraflate' with cartridge for refilling a bike tire
    • a Gerber multitool
    • mini Maglite (with holster)
    • eyeglasses strap
    • orienteering compass
    • multiple sharpies
    • assorted salt/pepper, sugar, wet-wipes, napkins, plastic forks and a good sized wodge of paper napkins (all from restaurants)
    • squeeze pkg. of almond butter, small pkg of trail mix
    • cord/charger for phone

    --maybe I'm drifiting into B.O.B. contents by bringing all of that in. Sorry if so, but it's still my EDC, pretty much.

    (Also--from Sept. to June: a ream or so worth of students' papers, etc.)

    Not very exciting, maybe, but one thing I've wondered about--seems like that 'ultraflate' has the potential for alternative uses, like--well, actually, I'm not really sure.

    Any ideas?

    Of course, there's always the 'inflate a flat tire' use--which is good enough reason to carry it. See picture below.

    Also--I always enjoy finding something like the bike multi-tool that people aren't so aware of, that could have broader appeal/use. Thus the pic of that, as well.

    Good to empty out the crap from my bag--I've got more little sanitizer bottles than I need to carry every day. Also, my F.Aid items are kind of limited. I'll add some vinyl exam gloves, etc. I like what someone else had above: travel size bottle of bleach. I have in mind to get the dry ingredients to add to water to make an wound irrigation/eye wash solution.

    But now I'm definitely getting off topic, so I'll end it there.

    Yes I do carry everything listed. I work on a large construction site (remotely controlled tower crane). I travel 180 kilometers, return trip 6 days a week. I like to think that I'm ready for any situation. I do carry more gear in my car.

    I carry a jumbo versipack, with a folding knife, small flat fixed blade, 1 litter water bottle full, and a few odds and ends that change with need. This pack also houses my concealed carry and 2 extra mags. Wallet etc... This "man-purse" as my wife calles it, is never out of reach.

    When working, I also have a "pack" with a gerber multi-tool, snacks, compass,gps, kestrel weather device, duct tape, lighter, 2 radios (1 for my agency, 1 for local cooperating agency) and protective gear for my day job, (fighting wildfires)
    When off duty the work pack is outside in my truck. It also doubles as my get-home-bag, and my SAR bag, with some stuff in a sack behind the rear seat that I would add to it as needed.
