I love your site, I submitted my edc a while ago and this is how far I’ve gotten. I either carry the Wave or my Kershaw Leek when I want to go lightweight. 

Magpul Field Case - Black 16gb iPhone 4
Fenix E11
Leatherman Wave
Casio Watch
Fisher Space Pen - Bullet
Key Chain - Carabiner, Gerber Shard, LED light

Editor’s Note: Here’s a simple, well-rounded carry that doesn’t really break the bank. The Fenix and Wave combination should cover many bases, not take up too much pocket space, and last a long time. The E11 is a decent, affordable and simple torch that runs on easily sourced batteries. Your keychain is kept minimal with a backup one piece multitool and an LED, which is good — I’d probably consider swapping out that carabiner for a different kind of retention clip though (but with such a lightweight keyring, you might be okay there). The Space Pen is a classic EDC staple and the Magpul is a good choice of case too. To be honest there’s not much in the way of outstanding high-end gear, but it’s good to remind readers that you can configure an EDC for pretty much any budget and any lifestyle. The advantage of more affordable gear is that they’re also easily replaceable if they get lost. Just be aware that there is a difference between cheap and affordable! You did a great job of that. Thanks for sharing.

Celebrate National Day of Adventure on October 14th

I know you didn't print this post out to read it, so I'm going to safely assume you're reading this on a screen. Probably the same screen you stare at hours on end, day in and day out, whether it's at work or just passing time on your phone. I know, it's fun to scroll through photos of people's gear, do a little online shopping, and escape from the grind of the 9 to 5 sometimes. But if that's your idea of taking a break from it all, you can do better. Maybe it's time to unplug. For real.

Here's a suggestion: join us in celebrating National Day of Adventure on October 14th. It's a day meant to give you a chance to log off, step away from your desk, head outdoors, and enjoy the moment. Now, I'm not saying to play hooky (but I'm not not saying it, if you get my drift) — even the tiniest departure from the norm is a step in the right direction towards a more adventurous life. If you can swing it, take a sick day! It'll be fun.

NDOA is a joint effort by our friends at Victorinox and their many partners, including Men's Journal, REI, the National Park Foundation, and more. That includes us and you too, as a member of the Everyday Carry community!
