    Hmm. about $350 to $400 without my A2 jacket, $550 to $600 with...

    Now, the interesting part is that $250 of that is what it cost me in new multis and parts, to build one complete custom Leatherman...

    A LOT less than I did in previous years, but still more than an average person should spend. Maybe 4 SAKs, 3 multitools and 2 flashlights? I don't think I bought a single bladed knife knife this year. Together with various bags, batteries (some 30 eneloops in the last few months), maybe $300.

    I'm somewhat at an equilibrium state with my gear right now. I like it just as it is and it rarely changes. Used to by lots as I wanted to try them all out too see what I liked, I know that now. I know I'm gonna get a Nitecore i4 charger in a few weeks and a CR123 flashlight of some sort, still not sure which one though, still searching for the perfect one.

    I think I've spent close to around $650 at least on the stuff I remember buying. Poor old high school student :help:

    It would be a guestimate but around$1200AUS. And now I think of it I want to cry but at least I didn't buy illegal drugs or gamble with it.I tell my understanding wife I hang on to receipts to claim it on tax for work related expenses re: possible equipment used when deployed which is true.In saying that my wife is not so naive that she doesn't realise I'm a gadget/gear addict, as long as there's a roof over our heads,bills are paid and basic needs are always taken care of.My new year's resolution is to reduce my expenditure on gear.At least try :)
    Reading this thread makes me feel better that I'm not alone.
