interesting thread. For me is edc, what I can carry in my pockets, the rest is just addition to make your life easier. left front pocket: - wallet (used every day, keeps important documents, ok the duct tape card hasn't seen much use) - iPod touch, daily, jotting down my homework, listening to music etc. - SAK (at least a couple of times over the week, mostly the knife) right front pocket: - keys with (daily) + torch (often handy) + USB Stick (important if you're in school and need to get the worksheet from your teacher etc.) - small etui w/ mirror and toothpicks (as often as I eat outside and need to clean my teeth, especially my braces) - LM Blast (not necessary, but I like to carry it) In my jacket pockets - calendar (often to keep my dates in mind) - moleskine notebook (hoped to use it more often) - headphones (daily) - opinel (at least a couple of times a week) - pen (every day) So I also carry 3 blades, but just because I like them all. I can leave my MT at home, well, but I don't. I think it's enough to be prepared, but I don't need an extra bag for it. Everything else is in my backpack I'm mostly carrying.
