I’ve always had a thing for gadgets, and so, I’ve been “EDCing” since I was a kid without “knowing it.” Quote-unquote. I stumbled across this site a little while back, though, and had my eyes opened to the care with which people were approaching the philosophy. It’s inspired me to put some real thought into what exactly I bother carrying and how I carry it. So here’s what my carry has both grown into and been refined down to:  

1969 Submariner that I’m “borrowing” off my dad. For good. On a Maratac Mil-Nato strap.
Bic Lighter
Benchmade Mini Grip
Pilot G2 0.38
Notepad
Custom leather money fold my friend Des made for me.
Burt’s Bees, Medicated, slightly murdered a la gaffer’s tape.
iPhone 4
Keychain - County Comm tweezers / Pocket Tool X Brewzer / house key / extra leash string (classic bro move) / car key / 4Sevens Quark Mini 123 T6 
High fives (not pictured)

Editor’s Note: I really like this carry for its minimalism, simple utility, and relatively affordable choices of gear with just enough individuality and creativity. The Bic and G2 work well enough to be EDC staples for many, but are also easily replaced if lost or broken. The Mini Grip is fairly affordable, ambidextrous, and has a short blade length that makes it accessible to those even living in states with stricter knife laws. The keychain setup is packed with utility but remains streamlined and with strong retention. The custom leather wallet and the changes to your Sub’s strap and your taped off lip balm add individuality but maintain function. I think the taped lip balm is a good idea, you could probably carry some duct tape or a bit of paracord with you the same way. Good stuff, good ideas and thanks for sharing!

Trayvax Black Element Wallet

An interesting thing happened when we featured the Trayvax Axis a while back—we found that our readers who carry one are exceptionally happy with Trayvax and all their wallets. So when we heard Trayvax made updates to their flagship Element wallet, we had to take a look.

The new Element comes with all the features of the original. Top-grain, oil-tanned leather make up its main enclosure, and secures onto the stainless steel skeleton with mil-spec 550 paracord. The frame now comes in a much-requested black colorway, with a Cerakote finish that improves durability and RFID protection. The Element is sized for EDC at 4.5”x2.8”x0.5”, and designed to carry 3-10 cards and 1-5 folded bills either in your pocket or off a lanyard.

The black version of the Element is made in the USA and comes in Mississippi Mud (dark brown), Tobaco Brown, and Canyon Red leather (pictured above). If you want a rugged wallet that both carries minimally and ages elegantly, pick one up direct from Trayvax at the link below.
