    I have one from an old pos pack. That was the only part I saved. I am thinking about having one of the local leather makers make one out of leather as the one I have is od nylon.

        The "survival kit" portion of my EDC consists of:

        1. 100 feet of 550 PC.
        2. First-Aid kit (mostly neosporin and bandages)
        3. Leatherman Surge multi-tool.
        4. Signal mirror
        5. Coghlan's Six Function Whistle
        6. Water-Purification pills
        7. Water-Filtering straw
        8. Emergency Mylar Thermal Blankets
        9. Fishing Kit
        10. Rambo-style hunting knife
        11. Fire-making stuff (Mag stick, matches, lighter, kindle. etc.)

        ...and I'm sure a few other items that I need to look in the EDC bag to remember that I have them! :)

          I carry a backpack (just got a new North Face Recon for xmas and I LOVE all the pockets!!:)) instead of a purse, and as an EDC. Besides purse stuuf, like a wallet, it contains a first aid kit, flashlight, multi tool, pocket knife, lighter, paracord, water purification tablets, baby wipes and diapers. I have room for more, but I just threw what was in my old pack into this one - it's past time for a refreshing!

              Whenever I go out I always have my basic survival kit with me, usually in an inside jacket pocket. When I'm heading off into the woods for some scouting I have a daypack filled with my gear, and then I have my web belt with my firearm, canteen, compass w carrier, a first kit, and then my bayonet and buttpack. Last but not least my adjustable walking, camera stand, rifle rest, walking staff.

                    its funny that you mention the fact that the first can you chose was about the size of a Skoal can. I have made several of the small edc kits out of my empty Skoal cans, a small fishing kit with 2 different size line 1-15' of 8lb test and 1-15' of 40lb test, 2 small corks, 3 small and 3 med bait holder hooks, a few different size sinkers, a couple of leaders. I actually have a log duct taped in my truck glove box that has a fishing can, a sewing can, a first aid can, 2 fire starter cans( 1 with small firesteel and striker with a small baggie of magnesium and some waxed cotton balls, two cheap broadheads with dettachable blades and another with 3 strand of baling twine braided together and ran thru wax about 50', and 2 cans of deer jerky. i mean its a total of 7 cans and on the outside i just wrapped about 10-15' of duct tape in total around the seams to hold them together. i will post pics if anybody wants to see it. i was pretty proud of it myself lol

                        just talkin about this stuff is giving me ideas, i think i might bind a whole "pod" (is what i have been calling them lol, my wife laughs at me and i tell her i better not catch her using one when shtf) with paracord. I should be able to get a good amount of cord arround it and maybe figure out how to tie a shoulder sling or strap into it. This place is genius, lol

                          Assuming the OP was asking about just what is carried on person during typical around town, going to work/dinner/movies/shopping and not camping/fishing/hiking/wheeling type stuff (very different gear) - folding knife, very small AA LED flashlight, permanent match, small multi-tool, tube of carmex lip balm, wallet, work cell phone, personal cell phone, can of Skoal Straight pouches.

                            my edc

                            I carry and edc by maxpedition everywhere. In it are many survival items including water bottle(stainless steel), drinking cup,first aid kit, several meds, a gerber knife (german army type) energy bars, water purification tabs, fire starting kit (lots of options in it), fishing kit, 50' para cord, emergency blanket, gaterade tablets, soup cubes: on my hip is a niteeyes large pouch with flashlight, gerber tool, small plyers, and a reversable screwdriver: in my pockets is two different lighters, a zippo and a butane by roberson, a small old timer pocket knife, and a self defence pocket knife: if i get to my truck i have a bug out loaded out for a 5 to 7 day treck. and a 9 mil with lots of ammo. I think that the combo should get me home, or to a good safe spot. with my military training and time in afghanistan I feel pretty safe.

                              You know I carry a variety of stuff depends on where I am going, but this thread does remind me of camping with the gang as a kid. We had a habit of just walking into the woods with whatever we had on us and staying for the weekend. Noone wanted to be the one who had to go home for supplies. (We teased each other mercilessly.) So I stashed a metal lunchbox (Can't remember what the cover was..... Dukes of Hazard?)
                              I placed it in the bowl of a palm tree that had been cut down, then covered the hole with leaves and dirt.
                              When we would get to camp, I would just unearth the lunchbox and pull out fish hooks and line. Simple enough to dig little river muscles, smash the shell, and instant bait! The catfish were consistantly there.
                              I kept a lighter, so within minutes of arriving I could easily manage fire and food.
                              It was a lot like prepping now. a few supplies laid up in advance of need = easier results.
