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!

Bellroy Phone Wallet

It would take an exceptionally well executed product to make phone case/wallet hybrids catch on, especially with the minimalist EDC crowd. While they aren’t anything new, you can chalk up their relative unpopularity to a couple of factors. First, most “folio” cases tend to add a ton of bulk to an already unwieldy generation of smartphones. Second, they don’t offer much else more than the convenience of keeping your phone and just a few of your cards in one place, which is a little risky in itself. With their strong existing lineup of slim wallets and quality phone covers, Bellroy stands the best chance of finally solving these problems with their new Phone Wallet.

True to their minimalist design, Bellroy shaves bulk off the traditional folio case using their stripped down pocket layout. Instead of lumping individual card slots all into the cover, the Phone Wallet distributes cards in more places for higher capacity in a sleeker silhouette: 2 cards fit in the front cover pocket, while up to 3 cards and once-folded cash tuck away behind the phone on the back of the case itself.

Small, thoughtful details add even more functionality to the wallet, like a microfiber-lined case interior to keep scratches to a minimum, hidden slots for a SIM card and pin for the traveling types, a leather tab on the cover for easier opening, and a thumb slot on the flap pocket for quicker access to your most used cards. The front cover even doubles as a kickstand for tabletop viewing.

If your goal is to carry less, you can have your bare essentials all in one place with this new hybrid wallet. They’re available in 3 colors for iPhone 6 and 6s Plus at the link below.
