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

My Everyday Carry

Designer, Photographer, Hiker. The Midori notebook has really been great. I have made some of my own inserts and their paper does well even with fountain pens. Atwood tools are a great story of a one man business, harder to get a hold of these days tho. The light is simple and inexpensive, but it's a small enough company that they pick up the phone if you have a problem. I've already had one replaced for free after the bulb on the first one went out after a few years. The knife is simple and nonthreatening. I went through five or six iPhone cases before I found the Magpul. I used my previous one for three years solid...
