• TuffCut Shears with lanyard on handle - to secure safely in pocket (looped over earpieces of stethoscope) as I’ve lost countless pairs.
  • Casio F-91W. This replaces my wristwatch and sits on my belt (“naked” from elbow down policy at work). It’s bum-basic, easy to disinfect and cheap to replace.
  • Peli VersaBrite 3. Clips onto loops on my shirt/fleece – really useful for leaving my hands free for completing paperwork/or not falling down steps at night with poor lighting and hands full.
  • Leather belt radio clip.
  • iPhone FM radio transmitter. Allows me to play my iPod via the ambulance radio.
  • Pen torch (for pupillary responses)…as no one likes 100 lumens in the face.
  • Fenix LD10 R5. Love it, although have contemplated replacing with a CR123 battery powered torch, but AA’s are supplied free at work.
  • SAK Spartan, endlessly useful.
  • Littmann Classic II SE stethoscope.

First off, really like the site. Perhaps similar to others, I have a slight pre-occupation with little gadgets, and an awareness of the objects I carry with me on a daily basis. I found your site while looking to replace the LED Lenser K3 on my keys, and have since then lost a substantial amount of time trawling through previous submissions.  Anyway, I finally decided to photograph my EDC, but have also included those objects I carry on my person on a daily basis while at work (UK Paramedic). Thanks for the site, and keep up the good work.

The lower row is my ‘true’ daily carry, from left to right:

Editor’s Note: Hi Matt, thanks for the kind words, and for sharing a carry unique to you profession for us to enjoy. Your “true” EDC is set up just fine — Fairly minimal, good utility on your keychain and you managed to do it despite the more strict UK knife laws. Your work carry is especially interesting and refreshing to see! The retrieval cordage on your shears is very clever and looks like it would work great to quickly let you get to work, which is important in your profession as a paramedic. The LD10 should stay in your carry if you love it and batteries are free, in my opinion. Some CR123 lights are much brighter but these days you can even get away with something like the EagleTac D25A clicky, which is very compact and bright for a 1xAA light. Otherwise, everything looks great. The one thing that struck me was that you didn’t include a ‘rescue tool,’ with a glass breaker, seatbelt cutter and so on, but if those aren’t necessary in your line of work, forgive me. Thanks for sharing!

Bellroy Phone Wallet

It would take an exceptionally well executed product to make phone case/wallet hybrids catch on, especially with the minimalist EDC crowd. While they aren’t anything new, you can chalk up their relative unpopularity to a couple of factors. First, most “folio” cases tend to add a ton of bulk to an already unwieldy generation of smartphones. Second, they don’t offer much else more than the convenience of keeping your phone and just a few of your cards in one place, which is a little risky in itself. With their strong existing lineup of slim wallets and quality phone covers, Bellroy stands the best chance of finally solving these problems with their new Phone Wallet.

True to their minimalist design, Bellroy shaves bulk off the traditional folio case using their stripped down pocket layout. Instead of lumping individual card slots all into the cover, the Phone Wallet distributes cards in more places for higher capacity in a sleeker silhouette: 2 cards fit in the front cover pocket, while up to 3 cards and once-folded cash tuck away behind the phone on the back of the case itself.

Small, thoughtful details add even more functionality to the wallet, like a microfiber-lined case interior to keep scratches to a minimum, hidden slots for a SIM card and pin for the traveling types, a leather tab on the cover for easier opening, and a thumb slot on the flap pocket for quicker access to your most used cards. The front cover even doubles as a kickstand for tabletop viewing.

If your goal is to carry less, you can have your bare essentials all in one place with this new hybrid wallet. They’re available in 3 colors for iPhone 6 and 6s Plus at the link below.
