    • After a review of what I do, what I carried and what I need to carry, I have updated my EDC config. Thanks to those who made input into my EDC here.

      This is my core and extended core EDC for my day to day ministry role as an Anglican priest. I adjust my config for my role as CFA (fire brigade) chaplain and wildfire firefighter.

      The Bag

      Jumbo with removed storm collar. EMS red suits my function as a emergency services responding chaplain. I am trying to source CFA and Chaplains patches.

      1. Multitool Fullsize. My new favourite toy. This need to fulfil several criteria:
      • As I don't carry a folding knife this needed to serve as my main blade. The exterior accessible S30V blade meets that criteria well.
      • I need an accessible rescue and serrated blade to take fire fighting. The exterior serrated blade with rescue hook meets that criteria
      2. Knife Paring - Analon 8cm knife. Used for trimming/resizing candles and general vestry abuse. Keeps and edge well and has an excellent rubber handle that grips well when working with wax.
      3. Torch Penlight- Steamlight Stylus Pro. This is the most recent addition to my EDC. I also EDC a Fenix TK20 with Yellow Handle for night responce to fires/accidents.

      Case Pen Custom
      [​IMG]
      I made this out of woll and Japanese Kimono fabrics to hold my favourite pens.

      End Load out

      I am never far away from my car so this is all supported by my Car Response Kit

      Still to be outfitted:
      • Laminated Emergency Information and Check-lists
      • CFA and Chaplaincy Contacts and SOP's
      • Complete Ministry Module - Looking at fitting all my ministry needs (stole, oil stock, pyx, aperger) in an organiser. The front runner is a Cocoon CPS300 due to my need for custom fit.

      End show and tell.

    Very nice and well thought-out setup. O0

    Just a quick search for 'chaplain patch' on google came up with this:
    CHAPLAIN Patch 1 x 4

    Devil's Attic of Leather had that same patch... but didn't think that you'd want to surprise your postal man that way. :laugh:

    what an excellent specific-to-your-needs kit, InMused! :highfive:

    It's just so cool to see how folks personalize stuff to fit what they need.
    In conjuction with your car kit - you've got a nice set up at all times to give you "peace in the storm!" :yoga:

    Cheers Tappan. Bikers patches are a good idea.

    My philosophy is that if I can't find an item that fits my criteria exactly, I either re-access my criteria or I have it custom made. I am getting my local embroidery shop to make me a couple of these:

    Ditto!

    I really like that pen case. The few pens I EDC (fountain pen, Lamy TriPen, eraser pen) fit in the pen loops of my backpack. Otherwise I would be looking through my stuff for some cloth right now.

    Yes, Full NRSV on my iPhone. I carry a regular NRSV bible on an adhoc basis for preaching and study when needed.

    Thanks, it's nice to sit in a cafe with a molskine and my pen case laid out to do some journaling. It's a good conversation starter.

    Yes, I've been watching that thread. I am putting together my own custom cards to suit my needs essentially our Household Emergency Plan consisting of evacuation rendezvous points, emergency radio frequencies, evacuation decision points and critical contacts.
