My Everyday Carry
Like so many of us who visit this site, I perhaps unsurprisingly attach great importance to quality workmanship, though wherever possible I do try to strike a balance between quality and affordability. I have an EagleTac D25C Ti, a recent purchase, which is truly sublime, but it’s a bit too bulky for everyday carry, at least in my case. So I prefer to stick with my Maglite, despite the fact that it’s far from perfect. And as intimated above, I also try not to carry anything I don’t actually use, though there are a few exceptions to this rule. I no longer use the peanut lighter because I quit smoking a while back but I still carry it, why I don’t know. The miniature dictionary is just a talisman for me as a translator. And believe it or not, I do occasionally use the antique combination padlock.
This kit of mine has gradually evolved over time and will continue to do so. Things come, things go. Some of the things I purchase for EDC purposes end up being relegated to my bug-out bag, like my SOG and EagleTac for instance.
Many thanks for the fantastic blog. It has such appeal – for me at least – because it allows me to satisfy a deeply voyeuristic urge to see what other people have in their pockets and bags. I’ve benefitted from seeing what others carry and it has allowed me to tailor my own kit accordingly. Feel free to suggest how I might improve my set-up!
