I’ve been carrying this for the last couple months.  It’s pretty heavy, but I think every piece has its place.

Editor’s Note: Here’s a little more fully loaded pocket dump, but a nice example of some great gear. I definitely can see how each piece here plays its part, so if you ever needed to slim down the carry you’d want to consider how often you actually use some of these things, or if they can be either replaced with smaller options or have functions consolidated in another type of product. I see you have the Xtremkey — but do you really need that kind of durability, especially to the point that you’re willing to take up more pocket space with it than your primary flashlight? You could replace it with a keychain USB, and your lighter with something smaller, and ditch the SRM as you have two other blades, etc. The Rotring you carry no doubt is a great pencil, but with its exposed tip it might be better to look into a different pencil or forego it altogether, considering you don’t seem to carry a pocket notebook. I like the Pervburg sticker tho, keep that. Anyway, like I said, you have good gear — but possibly too much. There are always different opinions on what degree of ‘preparedness’ is ‘acceptable’ or ‘recommended’ in EDC circles, so if you feel perfectly comfortable with this configuration, congrats and carry on. If you want to slim it down, know that you have good gear to work with and I hope my suggestions prove useful. Sometimes you just go through different phases of acquiring, field testing, selling off/consolidating until you reach that sweet spot of minimalism and utility that works for you. Thanks for sharing!
