    I am taking this to mean, "If you could carry any five items, not just five you own, what would they be?" In that case:

    1. iPhone 4
    2. Spy 007 with High CRI emitter
    3. Filipe De Coene Carbon Fiber Explorer Mini

    That is enough for me. Someone else can use my last two slots.

    My minimal EDC is seven items...

    1. Spec-Ops THE wallet Jr. - ID & cards & money & needle & thread
    2. Keys on Maxpedition key clip w/ Photon 2 micro light & - like the above, kinda essential in the modern world
    3. Kershaw Boa knife - durable little folder w/ great one-handed operation
    4. Samsung Trance cellphone - just a basic phone w/ good sound quality Verizon gave me for "free"
    5. iPod in OtterBox waterproof case - mainly for audiobooks
    ---
    6. Casio Pathfinder Hunting Timer watch - not quite up to "g-shock" standards, but it is waterproof enough for me & has a vibrating alarm
    7. Spec-Ops Tactical Checkbook - for waterproof notebook, Zebra pen, & coins

    I guess that's where the cutoff lands.

    There are a few more juicy details of even my minimal edc, and it's about to get an overhaul... I'll have to get some pics & post them soon :)

    I like the idea behind this. I'll make two lists as the OP suggested. One for normal EDC, and one wish I had on me in a S-H-T-F scenario.

    Normal EDC - I preffer light items in my pockets, and as I can't carry a bag, this is the selection.
    1. Knife - - - - - VIC Camper
    2. Multitool - - - LM Juice PS4
    3. Flashlight - - -Fenix E01
    4. Cell phone - - Nokia 5310
    5. Lighter - - - - Mini BIC

    S-H-T-F EDC
    1. Knife - - - - - Ka-Bar KBD1
    2. Multitool - - - LM Wave (I would much rader have a Surge in this situation, but I sold it, so by the rules it's a no-no)
    3. Flashlight - - -Quark AA^2 Tactical - 0.2 lumens for 30 days, 4 lumens for 5 days, 22 lumens for 24 hours, ... nuff said
    4 Cell phone - - Nokia 5310 / comunication + radio for emergency broadcasts
    5. Lighter - - - - xxl sized BIC / The old, fat ones, I don't know it they still make them, haven't seen them in a while, but I have a few at home. If I, as a smoker, can use one mini Bic for 2-3 months, then a big one should work for a year :eek:)

    P.S. Didn't know that S-H-T-F is a dirty word here. Is there a list of the "forbidden words" someware? I know of a few, but not all.

    1. Swiss Army Knife or Leatherman. It'll cover a blade, as long as many other tools, depending on model, within 1 item. With only 5 items, the most "bang for the buck" items are important.

    2. Wallet. Always gotta have some cash on you.

    3. MP3 player. I cannot go a day without music.

    4. Keys. This may be cheating, but I have an SAK, Leatherman Micra, P-38, spark plug gapper, and duct tape, all on an S-biner.

    5. Pen or Pencil. If I need to write down a plate number for some reason, or if I lose my phone number and I find someone to let me "borrow" hers ;-)
