    My EDC is not even complete to the point where I consider myself to be “refining” it, but I'm getting happy with it.

    The only pants I currently own are LAPG Operator pants, which have these nice front of the thigh utility pockets and calf cargo pockets. You'll note that I can't stand having anything in my rear pockets.

    • Casio Super Illuminator on Maratac Bond Zulu band.
    Right front:
    • THE Wallet (I know, I know, it is ridiculously huge)
    • Black Scallion pocket knife
    Left front:
    • Keychain - keys, light, Inka pen, tweezers, Gerber shard
    • Lumapower EDC LM32 (sometimes)
    Left utility/thigh:
    • Cellphone - Xperia X10, in Otterbox Commuter
    Right Cargo:
    • pocket tissue pack
    • Pentalic pocket notebook - orange cover, grid-paper
    Left Cargo:
    • Flashlight (alternate location)
    • “MacGyver” pouch - a Diplomat pocket organizer containing repair and jury rigging supplies (not tools, but, eg, safety pins, paracord, sewing kit, etc. sometimes this feels too bulky and I'll put it in my bag instead)
    Left calf:
    • headphones - Meelectronics in-ear monitors, in a clamshell case (left cargo pocket if MacGyver pouch is in bag)
    Right calf:
    • collapsible grocery bag
    • mission specific flex space
    • Water bottle
    • multi-tool
    • small towel
    • small first aid kit
    • school/office supply things - pens, pencils, erasers, ruler, compass, etc
    • electronics (usb drive, charger, cables, sometimes netbook)
    • A few other bits and bobs

    99% of the time I'm in Wrangers, or Cabelas 5 pocket jeans.
    Front left pocket -
    Phone, loose.
    Pen(G2) clipped along rear seam/leg seam.
    Flashlight(Teralux 80lm 2xAAA) clipped in front of pen.

    Front right pocket -
    Muli-tool clipped along rear seam--
    Otherwise empty pocket for anything I might pick up in the course of a day.

    If I have a big multi on me, like my current Surge, I keep is as stated. But with a smaller multi, like Wingman, or Wave, I put the phone in the right pocket with the multi and keep the left pocket open to options. The phone is more comfortable in the right pocket... but too hard to get out past the bigger multi.

    Watch pocket-
    Zippo and Case peanut.
    Sometimes a loose house key.

    Back Right Pocket -
    Wallet- simple leather bi-fold.

    Back left pocket -
    Empty, again, for anything I might pick up in the course of a day. I tend to drop mechanics tools here while at work, instead of laying them down somewhere, more handy than trying to go find it again.

    If I carry a keychain(rare) its clipped to the keeper loop on my belt next to the buckle, which I wear over my left hip. If I carry a bigger light, then its caribinered here, and the keys move to right side belt loop.

    If i carry my bit kit/tool accessory pouch I put it on my belt between right side belt loop, and back belt loop, just over front edge of back right pocket. Or, caribiner it to right side belt loop, or the next one back.

    lol oh man, this thread brings back some memories. i got tired of friends, family and coworkers commenting on my "bat belt" :p when i first started to fervently edc several years ago. my carry methods have evolved since then and i no longer carry any items on my belt besides my leatherman (rarely ever leave the house without this thing) and work security access card. i also wear a watch everyday (extends battery life of your cellphone by 30-60%) and have polychromatic glasses so i never need shades. it may seem like i carry a lot while cataloging all the items but i wear 5.11 cargos on the job and its an overall discreet system without any excessive/noticeable bulging, rattling etc.

    i carry m-f/90% of the time in the following manner.
    right front: primary edc knife clipped to pocket (holes and shredding have developed here on most of my pants), matchbook & loose change/cash
    left front and/or 5.11 phone/mag pocket: these pockets are dedicated solely for my cellphone
    right rear: pen clipped to pocket and wallet
    left rear: primary edc flashlight clipped to pocket (holes and shredding have developed here on my of pants too lol), bandana & rite in rain notepad
    right bellow: light work gloves, chapstick/bic lighter and house keys (the gloves keeps the key chain items from rattling)
    left bellow: uncle bills urban wallet with secondary "for fun" knife/flashlight and pepper spray/houdini tool

    now for the weekend or days when im not wearing cargo shorts/pants i carry the following:
    right front: primary edc knife clipped and house/car keys
    left front cellphone
    right rear: wallet
    left rear: primary edc flashlight (something small, single AAA/AA) and bandanna

    for business/formal occassions i'll modify some of the items i carry:
    right front: small edc knife such as a spyderco caly 3 or alox pioneer
    left front: cellphone
    right rear: wallet (i'll swap the core items out of my specops wallet into my gucci wallet lol)
    left rear pocket: empty
    coat: car keys, space pen and maybe a flashlight (AAA size)
