The 2 pouches are not shown, but this is the kit
I've been trying a few experiments to find the lowest profile possible for pocket-carrying the holy trinity pliers, screwdriver, & blade that are still large enough for real work. ("Real" in my context is fixing things around the house, puttering around the garage and yard, and assembling cheap furniture or toys for the kids, or just random dumb needs out in the world.) I'd like it to not look too ridiculous in a khaki pocket.
The Knipex Cobra XS are irreplaceable. No multi tool pliers can compare to the reach and durability. I love these things.
The smallest screwdriver combination I've found is the Leatherman flat bits with a mini ratchet driver. Unfortunately for any kind of real leverage I also need an extension adapter which is more than I'd like to carry but unavoidable. The Wiha CentroFix is an incredible adapter and holds the flat bits securely with zero play but it is (comparatively) heavy.
My blade needs are minimal and the SAK Rambler disappears on my keychain along with a little Nitecore Tiki GITD flashlight. (Does that make it a holy quadrality?)
My current experiment uses the Deep Cover Clip Pouch over at CountyComm. Pros: I don't think it's possible to carry these items more compactly and the belt clip is a nice-to-have if I need to get it out of my pocket temporarily. Cons: it's not exactly quick-access since I need to take everything out just to get at one item.
That's a nice looking compass. Do you remember where you got it?
I recently purchased some HartfordGearCo UL wallets off of Etsy. They are nice little pocketable pouches. I don't know how well they'd hold up long-term for EDC, but I got them primarily for small fire / survival kits.
They are just long enough to fit an EXOTAC nanoSTRIKER.
A shame this little knife is discontinued. Looks like it'd be a perfect EDC knife for people who aren't "into" knives.
I have one of the wallet size that I use as a mini first aid kit and one I use as a wallet.
In the one I use as a wallet, I have an Elephant E8 wallet inside, which holds card (including mini) and cash. I still have enough room for an antibacterial wipe and receipts.
It is a nice size and I don’t have to worry about anything falling out.
Personally, for me, a zipper wallet is too fiddly, but that is a very personal preference. They seem like very nice little pouches, though, and I like that they don't use bulky fabric. However, you can get them in canvas, which may work better for EDC.
Wow. I did not realize that they were that small! I picked up a cheap, trinkety channel lock in that size that has been super handy. It currently resides in my Ryobi bit kit where I use it to wrench the bits out.
Have you see the Super Slim CentroFix? I don't know how it stacks up performance-wise, but it is definitely slimmer.
