Just for giggles, I wanted to get ideas for loading up an edc vest. I just found a Carhartt Briscoe Vest at a good price, and being that it's one of the few summer-weight vests I've found in a tall size, I ordered one. The biggest reason I want it is for a summer cover garment during weekend travel, but I'm also liking the idea of another layer of edc -- something that enhances what's in my pockets. I'd like to use it to bridge the convenience between what's in my pants pockets and what's in my edc bag. I think a lot of the things I now have in a bag could become even more convenient in a vest. However, I don't want to make it heavy or bulky, so I'm thinking of lighter weight items. What I already carry in my jeans pockets -- and what I prefer to leave in my jeans -- are Leatherman Wave, Fenix E05, Spyderco Delica, Field Notes, Fisher Space Pen, handkerchief, Sharpie, keys, Bic lighter. I'd also prefer to carry a spare magazine on my belt or in my bag. Here are some items I'm thinking of for the vest pockets: Silva Ranger Compass (since I'm often needing to know slope aspect, etc.) Swat T tourniquet plus clotting sponge Headphones Headlamp Spare bandana Tactical pen Work gloves Any other good suggestions?
