    Don't know. I have not a fixed EDC, items are always in rotation. The whole around 15K, i think.

    My 'edc' changes from day to day, though there arent a lot of differences

    Watch:
    Mostly my Citizen ecodrive, but sometimes a Timex Expedition
    The Citizen was 100 shipped from a member here, the Timex was 35 bucks from WalMart

    Wallet is minimalist that a friend made, I think I paid 30 bucks for it, maybe 35.

    My house key is on a Ti keyhanger, it was free in a Secret Santa gift

    Carmex lipbalm - I think the 3 pack was 4 bucks.

    Galaxy S5 phone was 200, the otterbox for it was 40, though I'll need to get a new phone soon as Ive had this for over 2 years now

    When it comes to tools/blades:I keep it simple.
    -Either a full sized LM - Wave, Signal, or Skeletool CX
    OR
    -A keychained-sized LM (Style CS or PS4) + my Benchmade auto knife

    So it can range from 20 bucks (Skeletool) up to close to 200 (BM + LM)

    Thats my EDC, its pretty basic.
    Do I have packs? Yep.
    Do I carry a flashdrive during the work year? Yep.
    But I dont consider those my 'edc' because it's not daily and I dont leave home with it each day etc

    SO
    To answer the question...well it can range from $330 up to $580 [ish]

    In the winter I add some things because I have a jacket, but it wont increase the price much at all, under 20 bucks.
    Lately Ive not been carrying the E05 on my keychain, just my car key.
    Im keeping it basic. Sometimes I'll add it back, just depends on the mood. But,again, its not everyday

    I believe if I add up everything I own for the purpose of EDCing it, I hit past the 5000€ mark.

    Half of that is my watch already, then I generally never buy any item just once (except that watch) but at least twice, some because I have it in multiple places, others because I like to have a spare handy.

    I also add the costs of bags to it, then the fact that I keep a private EDC and a duty EDC and stuff in the car as well.

    Looking at the fact that I tend to purchase stuff on the expensive side I would think that my first guesstimate is actually on the low side of realistic.

    If I actually go through all my bills and my wife saw the number, I would probably find myself paying for some rather exclusive photography equipment next and having to ah and ooh over the pictures for the rest of my life (ok, I am already doing that).

    What I'm carrying at any one time might add up to about $600, almost all of that being the firearm.
