I really enjoy reading your blog and getting to see how diverse everyones load out is.  So here is currently what I usually have on me. -Dan

- 32oz Nalgene bottle(I drink at least one every day)
- Keys w/gerber shard(would love an atwood and toying with the idea of a second light on the keys)
- Citizen BM6400 on NATO strap (cheap durable and easy to read)
- Slimmy Wallet
- iPhone 4
- Spyderco Sage 2 Titanium
- 4sevens Preon 2
- Shure e2c IEMs (I intend to replace these with custom molded IEMs soon)

Editor’s Note: Hey Dan, I appreciate your support. Let’s take a look at your EDC… It’s good to see that you keep a bottle, hydration is really important for daily health, and having water could save your life one day, actually. I just wonder how you carry something like that. As for your keychain, some Atwoods would definitely add different functionalities but also keep an eye out on Leatherman, word on the street is that they acquired PocketToolX and should have some more affordable keychain one piece multitool offerings to consider. A second light is not a bad idea either, considering your main light is a little long — a small twisty light should complement it well (if you like 4sevens, maybe a Mini CR2 if you can manage the bulk). But in its current configuration, your keychain seems lightweight enough to handle everything on that non-locking carabiner, assuming you pocket tuck it. Good choice of watch, you bring up a good point about it being easy to read. Arabic numerals would help out with that considering the small case diameter. Your knife is a great EDC, not too large with a nice blade shape, excellent materials and lock. And yes, e2cs are a little dated but I see you’re in the market to upgrade. Nice carry over all and thanks for sharing.

SureFire EB1 Backup

Let's face it, you'll inevitably get caught in the dark. It happens, there's no sun half the day after all. That is, unless you're prepared with a compact flashlight in your everyday carry. As far as tactical EDC flashlights go, SureFire have led the way with their Backup line. The newly updated EB1 is their best yet, and it may just be the help your EDC needs.

The EB1 Backup comes with two modes, activated by a forward clicky tail switch. The switch lets it silently and instantly activate on High for tactical use. This High setting can output 300 lumens for 1.3 hours, and its Low setting keeps 5 lumens going for up to 40 hours. Paired with a Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens, the EB1 produces a floody, general-purpose beam. It's still powered by the same CR123A its predecessor used, and maintains a similar, compact size.  You can easily slip the light into your pockets given its 4.4-inch  length and weighing only 3.3 ounces with its battery. With the included two-way clip, you can carry the EB1 on your clothing or gear to suit your preference.

There's no need to baby the light either. Its coated tempered window,  mil-spec hard anodizing, and weatherproof o-ring and gasket sealing ensure its durability even with the hardest use. Would you really want any less from a light that could potentially save your life?

There's no substitute for a backup you can always rely on. Let the EB1 be yours by picking it up at the link below.
