The subject came up in a different thread, but here is the Everyday Carry Thread.
What things do you carry with you always?
My normal stuff…
A wallet containing cards… Bank, Driver’s License, Green Card,…
A coin purse
A rose gold Claddagh wedding ring
A Dual frequency RFID/NFC ring
A Mi Band 3 fitness Tracker
Two keyrings (duplicates of one another) one in a keyport pivot 1.0 with a Yubikey 4, the other in a slughaus nano these contain one house key, three jeep keys.
Not shown a motorola moto g7
Next post… The less normal stuff.
I’ll post later when I’m in a location I’m allowed to use camera
Now we move onto the less common-ish…
Diodrio pouch containing an olight i3T EOS Flashlight, an Opinel No.08 Carbone, and a fisher space pen bullet in brass.
The second wallet which will become my third post along with the third keyring which I forgot to photograph…
An Aukey 10,000 mAh power pack (phone cable not shown).
A Drop path convertible CR2 flashlight.
In case you are wondering I have several pairs of 5.11 Tactical TDU trousers, with lots of pockets. Everything fits neatly and they don’t get in the way.
If I posted a pic it would be barren so I’ll just list what I carry.
That’s about it. Sometimes wireless earphones.
Keyport pivot with the troublesome deviant hooligan set from hooligan keys, plus one.
This is a compilation of common “keyed alike” keys.
Sparrows SERE Wallet, one side is a Sparrows Hall pass the other is a signal mirror. The contents and sides are laid out in two rows.
FSF USB membership card with a live Linux distribution.
Fresnel Lens (in a plastic sleeve)
Tiny Survival Card, the card is magnetic, but the metal pieces are attached to a Grim Workshop card with reusable adhesive on one side and a photoluminescent coating on the other side.
Tiny Survival guide - This unfolds into a fairly large double sided sheet.
600/1000 grit Diamond hone - stored in a small tyvek envelope.
The signal mirror side of the Wallet.
The next row has the elastic band at the start, and then…
A carrier card for an SD card adapter and ten micro-sd cards
Ouverture-fine lockpick card
Toool emergency lockpick card
Deviant Decoder Card from Redteamtools
Dangerous Things Diagnostic Card
The other end of the wallet, a Sparrows Hall pass.
And that is it for everyday.
Besides the survival cards, I have very much the same
I feel like a hook isn’t something I need to carry, I can scrounge or make one with knowledge and tools… also dying of hunger isn’t a large concern for me, think most people have a solid 2 weeks without food
Oh, how is the Sparrows wallet? I have a 3d printed wallet that I keep a hall pass in with a few cards so I am curious if that is a reliable wallet.
I live on the Oregon Coast, wild areas are within walking distance. The nearest city with a supermarket is 25 miles away (the one I live in has one too, but…) I carry the tiny Survival Card because it is so small and has useful things like a needle and a spare button. The booklet is lightweight and a handy reminder if I need it.
I have had it about two weeks (it replaced a similar one where the plates were just metal plates). The hall pass side is almost identical to the hall pass, it has a second small divot on one end for the band. So far it seems good. The other one I carry is a bit harder to get cards in and out of, and this one might provide a bit less RF shielding, but I think I prefer this one.
I gave my old hall pass to my wife.
Sigh. I thought about contributing here, but realized that my dresses and skirts all have… no pockets.
As well as lint and occasionally a mobile phone.
So i saw the thread and checked my pockets. Here you go.
A dog shit Bag
more important: Whats in my wallet?
Here a small peak
fuckn huge old wallet that just has old bills trash stickers cards and some copper coins inside xd
Mine would be rather barren as well so
- Wallet (includes DT diagnostic card)
Obviously you need to adopt the use of a Sporran. Admittedly when I’m wearing a kilt the Sporran usually just has my “real” wallet and one set of keys in it.
Fountain Pen + cartridges
DT diagnostics card
Magic gen 1a Mifare Classic 1K
Proxmark 3 RDV 4.01
Chameleon REV G
20000 mA powerbank (powercore something)
southord lockpick set
Tool for measuring tolerances (which I use to decode combination locks)
USB with Kali on it
The dreader white cloner
2 port USB power adapter
1TB external hard drive
Some of these have been added last year or so, which has been a year I haven’t left the apartment so will probably put it on a diet.
I also bought an i3t desert color in my pocket. I always take it when I go out.
Usually I carry a Wootz EDC pocket knife (tanto, locking) and a Thrunite TT20 torch, both are amazing. Coincidentally lost both this week…
I’m a little lazy on the camera, so forgive the lack of images, but in terms of “useful” stuff I ALWAYS carry:
- Too many thumb drives
- Spare MicroSD with adapter
- Gerber SHARD Tool
- CR2032 Keychain flashlight
- SIM tool (useful for SO much)
- DT Diag card
- Two phones
- Headphones (audiophile snob with ASD)
- Tissues/Paper napkins (serviettes for you snobby Canucks )
- Hand sanitizer
- Fountain pen (Platinum Preppy, ideally in purple or pink)
While I OFTEN carry:
- WAYYY too many thumb drives
- USB C-C cable, USB A-C Cable, +Lenovo power adapter
- Portable hotspot
- Mini screwdriver set
- Lenovo 65W rated power bank
And I SOMETIMES carry:
- Lockpick earrings
- Pocket knife (day job is VERY sensitive to sharp things)
In short “I like big purses and I cannot lie.”
If I’m carrying my backpack and a large purse, then I’m a walking loot drop, lol.
From left to right:
- Microtech Ultratech clone
- Bear Ops Bear Song VIII Damascus (I usually carry this instead of the UT clone, but it just depends on the situation)
EDC 3 wallet from a leather shop in Houston. I always have my payment cards, ID, and a DT Diagnostic card in it.
- My keychain, where all the fun happens
- Some random key organizer from Amazon. From left to right:
- Dover impulse independent service key
- TSA 007 key
- CH751 key
- House key (just installed a smart lock tho, so the house key is gone)
- Three wafer jigglers
- A homemade travellers hook
- Another small knife
- M1K gen 2 magic chip
- I1R3 EOS flashlight from Olight (150 lumens. It’s surprisingly bright for the size)
- Car key
- Not pictured:
- Samsung Galaxy Note 20
- Galaxy Buds+
- A paperclip, so I can show off my magnet
I used to also EDC lockpicks before I got a new wallet. Now I’m unfortunately not able to carry them as much. If I have a backpack you better believe I have those and my PM3 with me at all times though.
I really like the toool pick card (I have one in my wallet and a second one I took apart and made into a covert companion clone).
