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.

Nitecore MH20GT

How do you make a good light even better? You don't do it by fixing what isn't broken, that's for sure. You do it by making improvements where you can without getting in the way of what worked. That's the case with Nitecore's newest light, the MH20GT. It’s the 2016 update to last year’s MH20, a compact 18650 EDC light.

The MH20GT keeps the best features of the original: 1000 lumens on turbo, built-in USB charging, IPX-8 water resistance, and a side-switch UI. On this latest iteration, the light trades off a slightly bulkier body for a larger reflector and the latest Cree emitter. This emitter—the XP-L HI V3—pairs with the reflector to give 362 meters of throw. That’s over 100 meters farther than the original at 220 meters. It also gives much better performance across its 5 brightness levels and 3 special modes: it goes as low as 1 lumen for 680(!) hours of runtime all the way up to a 1000 lumen turbo that lasts for an hour.

The Nitecore MH20GT takes a great light and makes it even better, improving on all the features you need from a modern EDC pocket powerhouse. Pick one up for yourself at the link below.
