Great site! As a graphic designer, I wanted to submit something a little bit different. I’m from Norfolk, VA and drive a 40-minute commute to work. This is also my first real job, so this carry is basically from a student’s budget. 

Blackberry Curve
Pentel Quicker Clicker
G-Shock Glide
WD Hard Drive
Wallet
Moleskine
Ring – Earring Plugs
Keys
Spyderco Leaf Storm
Chapstick
Apple Macbook Pro
iPod Nano

Besides my keys, wallet and jewelry/watch, everything goes into a H&M laptop bag. Within the bag, a majority of the smaller items are organized in a Lihit Lab Teffa Bag in Bag. A few things were not included in the illustration, such as a small first aid kit, several usb flash drives, several markers/pens, and a microfiber cloth.    

I am hunting for a useful/minimal keychain tool and flashlight to complete my carry. Any suggestions would be awesome!

Editor’s Note: Hey JP, very cool presentation, great work! I appreciate the use of a woodgrain backdrop too, haha. I can see the utility of your carry given your position as a graphic designer, but as you mentioned, I agree you could round out the carry with some tools on your keychain. My go-to combination is a small, single-cell twisty light and a multitool of sorts. I currently use a 4sevens Mini123 with a primary battery as they last a long time and as a twisty light may offer more reliability (less moving parts to break) paired with a Victorinox Manager, which includes many commonly needed tools including a pen! On a student budget, however, you can invest in a more affordable 1xAAA light like a Fenix E05 and use a simple Victorinox SAK Classic. I’m not too partial to one-piece multitools but YMMV.

To the other readers, what keychain tool setup do you carry? Leave a comment and make some suggestions!

Thanks for sharing your work — I can imagine some people would be very interested in getting one of these made for their own carries :3. Keep it up and carry on.

Rever Vant Clipfold Wallet

You like cash, right? Along with your cards, it can be one of the most-used items in your EDC. So why do minimalist wallets make it so hard for you to keep cash on you? You have to fold, tuck, zip, and jump through a ton of other hoops just to retrieve your money. Rever out of San Jose, CA have had enough. They've made a wallet that changes how you deal with change, so the process is easy, convenient, and you can get right to the good stuff: spending it.

The Vant Clipfold gives you all the benefits of a minimalist wallet. It's slim, has slots for your essential cards, and made from top-grain Nappa leather. Its key feature comes in the form of a 15-degree rigid convenience clip, which pops up when you unfold the Clipfold. With this design, it's easy to lay your 6-8 bills flat, slip it into the wallet, and secure the cash without worry. You don't have to take time to fold or mess around with clips—storing your cash is as easy as opening and closing the wallet.

No need to leave out your EDC cards as well, with 2 quick-access exterior slots and 4 RFID-blocking interior ones. The Nappa leather option on the Vant Clipfold was selected not only for its hand feel, but also for its functional rigidity that makes the convenience clip work.

Love the convenience of minimalist wallets but tired of performing origami with your money? Pick up the Rever Vant Clipfold in your choice of color at the Kickstarter link below.
