    It varies. Sometimes I use them to actually put medication in if I'm taking a long trip. Other times I use them to put money in if I'm hiking and don't want to carry a wallet. The reason I bought a Pairamedic and a Trekker is so I can configure them in multiple ways. Their parts are interchangeable.

    I want to start back to dressing up at work and funny enough, the main thing stopping me is how to carry my EDC so it does not fall out of my pockets. The clip looks nice and might give that a try. Any other suggestions appreciated. :)

    Here you can see a pic of the pocket clip http://www.zebralight.com/SC30-Flashlight-CR123-193Lm_p_18.html

    And all I did was take an attachment that came with my EZCR123 and put it through the zebra pocket clip. Had they not put a hole through their pocket clip I would have never purchased the light as it would not have been keychain friendly at all.

    So happy I was able to get this light. Not sure if you familiar with the Quark MiNi 123 or NiteCore EZ 123, but this zebralight is one of my absolute favorite lights (best keychain light I own IMHO). That push button on the side is such a great feeling over the twisty type lights and the output goes from moonlight to superbright. Quality surpasses that of the other 2 lights I mentioned and it costs a little more as well.

    They are great! I bought my first one maybe 10+ years ago through Herrington Catalog and when I started doing more EDC type stuff came across them once again and the only way you will beat the quality is if you get some of the $100 TI ones being built by some of the people here on the forums. None of those aluminum ones you see everywhere will compare. And that link I posted was the only place I found that really sold this line. I waited 3-6 months before they came back in stock. I e-mailed them and crossed my fingers as I knew the quality was excellent...one day they e-mailed back and said they arrived.

    I'm new here - I plan on making some improvements to my keychain based on everything I've learned from browsing this forum. As it stands, l-r: house key, iamakey USB drive, Utili-Key, Streamlight Micro, two spy capsules with money and drugs, and a Spyderco Bug.
    [​IMG]
    Planned changes: I want to add a Valiant SS pen, trade the Utili-Key for a Prybaby, find a slightly larger, high quality spy capsule so I can fit everything in one instead of two, and put everything on McGizmo clips so it's easier to swap stuff in and out.

    Not a bad start! And welcome to EDCF. :welcome:

    You will start to thin your wallet out because of us. :evilgrin: :broke:

    Their are plenty of great Spy capsules out there. I'm no expert on them but I'm sure others are.

    Good luck on the prybaby find, you can usually buy some here on the forum marketplace(once you reach 15 posts I believe), or of course, Peter's blog.

    If you want a little bit bigger knife on your keychain they make a Spyderco Ladybug or you can get one just like your Bug except it's called the Honey Bee(A little bigger than your bug).

    I love the streamlight nano. Extremely bright for it's size and less than $10! I keep it on my keychain as well.

    Take care
    -Matt

    Take a look at this pic. Can't post one of my own right now.

    Just ran the split ring around one of the sides of the pocket clip on the zebralight.

    A bike lock key and storage space key .. I don't use/carry keys much.. mostly keypads, key safes and cards ..

    Thanks for the welcome, Matt! I will be edc'ing a pocketknife in addition to the Bug - I thought it was going to be a Kershaw Avalanche, but the assisted opening is illegal where I am. So I'm thinking a Kershaw OD-2, cheap and simple. I really like the Streamlight too, I find myself using it constantly.

    That's too bad about the Kershaw. They are great knives! (EDIT: Just saw your knife post, I see you are in California).

    I would go over to the knife section and post what you are looking for. I'd help you out here but it would be off subject.

    I'm always checking out the knives section here as I am sure I would see your post.

    I carry a Spyderco Chicago, it has a deep set wire pocket clip, carbon fiber handle scales, liner lock, and a high quality steel: CPMS30V for less than $50. Blade is 1.75" while the handle is: 3.25" long with a width of: 1" which makes it easier to handle in large cutting tasks even though it has a small blade.

    Good luck and take care
    -Matt

    p.s. Also check out the Streamlight Stylus Pro, and Microstream, excellent edc lights.

    This are my Carabiner gears i carry in my bag everyday,

    1. Swiss-Tech "Micro-Techâ„¢ 6-In-1"
    2. Victorinox Classic SD
    3. Keychain AAA Flashlight

    [​IMG]

    It's nothing fanciful as compared to the gears some of the guys here carried. Among those 3, Classic SD and the Flashlight is what i used most of the time.

    I bought mine from the same web site. The first time I looked for them they were out of stock and, like you, I went back months later and they had them in stock.

    Backup cash is usually a safe bet?
