Summary

PhD Student in London, UK
A consequence of my research is that i often have to work irregular hours, wait around for long periods of time and cross the city on foot or rapidly by bike.  My EDC reflects these needs:
Troop London Courier bag - Holds all the stuff pictured easily. Good for cycling or walking
Eddie Bauer Rippac rain jacket - Folds up really small, hi vis. Keeps out the always unpredictable English weather 
Samsung galaxy s2, with custom decal and case
A hex key - bike repairs 
Zebra B4A3 multi pen 
A Sharpie - Absolutely vital for labelling things in the lab  
Europa minor pad + Poquito pen -  For making experimental notes.
Nook simple touch with glow light + case made by my girlfriend - I put scientific papers on this
Lens cloth and an emergency sewing kit
Sapphire blue zippo - for lighting Bunsen’s and acting cool
Pill case + very basic first aid kit (plasters, aspirin and caffeine) 
Ultrafire cree torch - Attaches to my bike
Victorinox Swiss champ - for fixing stuff (mainly an ancient machine i have to run some of my experiments on)
Mini locking pliers  - bike repairs, adjusting lab equipment 
Victorinox belt hook with keys, a photon light, a safety pin and a rubber band
Wenger Delemont Watchmaker 85 - Decent knife with a useful pry tool
Knock off Boker plus Vox tool - picked it up in China for £2.50. Used to open crates 
Knackered Casio watch with equally tatty Nato strap - Refuses to break
Mandatory paracord bracelet
Klipsch s4 (mk1) headphones  - good headphones, 5 years of use so far
Micro wallet  - i’m not a fan of change 
iGO sync and charge key ring
Sansa clizip 8gb (+64gb micrpo sd) - A recent replacement for my venerable ipod classic. Haven’t made my mind up about it yet

Casio G-Shock GA100-1A1

Nothing beats a solid G-Shock for EDC. They're nearly indestructible, highly reliable, and come in every possible style and colorway to match the rest of your carry. The GA100-1A1 (aka The Dark Knight) is an all-black digital/analog G-Shock with all the right features for an everyday watch. Shockproof and 200-meter water resistance come standard, and its “three-eye” display includes a 1/1000 stopwatch, alarm indicator, and countdown timer. The two bottom windows on each side of the display show a digital time readout (with up to 29 time zones) along with a day/date indicator that includes an auto-calendar pre-programmed until 2099—which , given the ruggedness of these watches, the GA100-1A1 might live to see. You're also not completely in the dark with its blacked-out colorway: the watch comes with an auto-LED function for easy illumination. Need a tough watch to complete your murdered out EDC? You can pick up this G-Shock at the link below.
