  • My EDC and contents

    Hey guys,
    Just thought I'd post up my "Every Day Carry" bag and it's contents. Of course everyones idea of the perfect EDC will be different, but I've been using this setup for a while now, and I think I've worked out most of the bugs, and whittled it down to something that works well for me and my needs in my AO.
    Questions, comments, and suggestions are always welcome... And better yet, post up your own bag and let us know what you carry and why.

    Anyway, here it is. The bag is a UTG, which is a Chinese knock off of the Maxpedition.

    Mini LED flashlight is attached to the top pocket zipper. Small compass/thermometer combo attached to molle webbing.

    Top zippered pocket contents:
    Ziplock bags
    2x 4GB thumbdrives with various survival/gardening/weapons info
    Mech Pencil and a pen

    The outer zippered pocket under the main buckle:
    LED flashlight
    10x25 Monocular
    Gerber Multitool
    6' 550 paracord
    Bic Mini lighter
    Small spool of safety wire (not pictured)
    3 large paper clips (Not pictured)

    Outer open pouch:
    Small lock blade
    Retractable diamond stone sharpener

    Side Zippered Pocket:
    First Aid pouch
    Small calendar

    Contents of First Aid pouch:
    Assorted Band-aids
    Individual packets of anti-biotic ointment (Neosporin type)
    Individual packets of Hydrocortisone (anti-itch)
    Burn Gel
    individual packets of Ibuprofin
    Alcohol swabs
    Pink Bismuth tablets
    Small spool of Med tape
    Bic Mini lighter

    Main Pouch:
    Granols bars
    New Testament
    And usually whatever lunch I pack that day.

    Concealed Carry Pocket:
    Phoenix Arms HP22
    Extra Mag
    (This is a cheap little firearm that is surprisingly accurate. If I were to ever lose the bag, I wouldn't fret too much over losing this Sub $130.00 pistol. My thought process is that this little guy should be enough to get me to the .45 which is always nearby)

    Last but not least... A zip lock back with some TP in it.:cool: Because you just never know.:rolleyes:

    This last shot is the stuff I always have on me, but not in the bag. Though not unusual, I still consider them to be needed tools.
    G-Shock Solar watch
    Gerber folder
    Blackberry Curve dressed up in an OtterBox
    Photon LED light on key chain.

    Well That's about it. Some times I'll pull the .22 and carry the .45, just depending on where I'm going. I could probably do better, but I'm sure I could do a lot worse as well.
    Comments welcome... Now show us what you carry!

      That's a nice well thought out EDC. How do you like the bag? The Max bags are a little pricey for me but I was worried that the knockoff wouldn't hold up.

        It's held up fairly well so far, considering what I put it through. The lining has pulled away a little from the seam on the inside of the main flap. Looks like it's going to be an easy fix. The stitching is nowhere near the Maxpedition, but for under $30.00, it's nowhere near the cost of a Max.

        I do need to correct one detail. this bag is a UAG (Ultimate Arms Gear) not a UTG as originally stated. ...Though I'm pretty sure they come from the exact same assembly line.

          I always like the ideal of having the ability to start a fire, whether I carry my cigar lighter, small Bic, matches or a fire starter kit.
