    Hi everyone!
    My name is Mike and I'm a university student in Ontario. I've been broke ever since I was introduced to EDC and found out that there was a whole community of people who are just as crazy about this stuff as I am!
    I hope to meet all of you!

    Love,

    Mike

    Hey Mike ... welcome to the forum! Delighted to have you.
    Considering your statement, and the fact you've joined EDCF anyway, can only conclude that you're a masochist! :D If it's any consolation, you're among kindred souls.

    I'm into EDC, but I'm not too too much of a wilderness person. Like I've never gone camping before. YES I know. Don't freak out. Haha, but I love hiking and wilderness walks, just nothing too extreme

    Lol.. I'm with ya there.. Most of my EDC revolves around handy day to day type stuff.. I dont have a survival kit or anything like that.. One finds that having 7 different ways of starting a fire is pretty useless when you're driving around the city.. ;)

    Imma steal that quote from you the next time someone makes fun of me haha

    However, I do have an urban survival kit that I carry around with me.

    It consists of things like:
    advil, tylenol, allergy medicine (reactine and claritin), tums, tylenol cold, tylenol sinus
    some ORS (oral rehydration salts)
    duct tape (rolled flat with credit card)
    bandaids (of all sizes)
    ikea measurement tape
    extra batteries for my flashlights (CR2 and AAA and AA)
    halls
    hook
    nailclipper
    sewing kit
    magnifying glass
    extra cash (20 bucks)
    and i think that's it...
    this all fits into one super small bag (size of an iphone except fatter)

    I also carry my plain moleskine reporter, keychain, LM Wave, 4Sevens QuarkPro 2AA

    Nice urban EDC.. Mine is pretty similar, I keep it all in a Maxped Jumbo E.D.C.. No dedicated blade though?? Do you find the blade on the Wave is enough?

    I'm a student, and although that really isn't much of a good excuse, I find that having a blade subjects me to criticism. Lots of people shriek at the sight of my wave enough as it is. However, I am considering a blade just to add to my EDC collection. Any suggestions?
    Also, where on earth can i find a MaxPed I've been looking everywhere!

    That brings up another point, and I'm not trying to hijack your intro thread or anything, but... Do you find people make fun of you alot?? Or make funny comments about the stuff you carry?? I get it too, and more recently a lot because I now carry a man purse (even if it is baddass looking)..
