    What are essential EDC items for you?

    Me, I always carry a pocketknife and a flashlight. Other things, such as my Leatherman, pen and paper, etc., get added or removed from my EDC for the day depending upon whether I anticipate a need for them or depending upon the amount of pocket space I have that day!

    Essential to me (things I won't leave the house without for any reason) comes down to about 5 things. Wallet, keys, light, CRKT M-16-01Z, Glock 23.

    Wallet, keys, watch, cell phone, flashlight. Anything less feels incomplete.

    Apart from Wallet & Keys, I always carry a knife (Buck Strider SMBF or SAK Huntsman) or in knife-unfriendly areas (SAK Classic or LM Micra) & a flashlight. Preferably a Suefire E2D on belt, but often just a LED Lenser V2 or Inova style AA 6 LED light.
    My wallet holds a Swisscard, my keys USUALLY have attached a Comtech Stinger, photon clone, flint rod, dogtag, SAK Classic, & Utilikey. Oh, yeah, I rarely go out without my phone either, & thats in a holster holding a 2nd Swisscard & a Mag soliitaire.

    So,
    Wallet
    Keys
    Knife
    Flashlight
    Phone

    For me, it would be bus pass, security cards, wallet/keys (whatever's in my fanny pak), daily EDC folders, flashlight, multi-tool and my Maxpedition Jumbo Fatboy. Weekends, the security cards usually aren't needed unless I'm working.

    Essentials: Keys, lockback knife, cell phone, small flashlight(waiting on an ARC-AAA ;) ), wallet, and checkbook. I also have varous knives, ratcheting screwdriver w/bits, Leatherman squirt (orange one?), and a 5-LED Contact in the truck. Also bought a Canon Powershot SD450 today during lunch. :)
