    I'm very habitual with my EDC. Same stuff in the same pockets every day. I wear two types of pants with similar pocket systems basically every day (I've worn jeans once in the past 3 months), so that works.

    On that lone occasion when I wore jeans, I carried:

    - Glock 19 Gen 4 with Trijicon HD sights in a Galco King Tuk, on a BladeTech Looper gun belt.

    - Spyderco Persistence

    - Fisher Space Pen Bullet

    - Wenger Esquire (stood in for my Juice S2)

    - recovery program chip

    - 5.11 TMT L1

    - Wenger wallet

    - personal keys

    - iPhone 5


    ...and I felt naked. :(


    If you don't carry it every day, it's not every day carry.

    Always on my person or within arms reach

    Keyport (car keys, house key, electronic ignition / bar code scanner for gym, 32gb thumb drive, and two safe keys)

    Leatherman squirt PS4 (love this thing)

    veleno designs D2 (smaller than AA battery and brighter than most double AA flashlights)

    Maratac peanut lighter (hold liquid for what seems like forever)

    ^^^^^^ all on a small key chain that fits in front left pocket ^^^^^^^^

    Samsung Note3 (also in left front pocket)

    In my right front pocket I always carry the following:

    Spyderco or benchmade blade (prefer 4" blades)

    Rigid wallet (thing beats the hell outta the traditional billfold)

    AA x 2 flash light (lately it's been my eagle tac because it has like 12 modes and is the brightest AA flashlight on the market)

    I usually carry my firearm at the 4:30-5:00 position and that firearm is:

    XDM 9mm fullsize with PRP trigger upgrade, new XD big dot sights, enforce APL tactical light, raven holster, and extended mag 24 capacity

    Or

    XDs .45 with PRP trigger spring kit, Pearce grip extension, hogue grip sleeve, and Viridian C5L (green)

    I feel naked, confused, and somewhat lost if I don't have all those items on me. I usually wear jeans, cargo shorts, or Dickie ripstop tact pants which usually give me TONS of room. I would say those thing listed above are my minimum carry and most would say that's probably way too much.

    My normal carry has mostly stopped evolving. Other than the key-ring, no substantive changes here in a year or more. I'd been looking for this specific type of key-ring for awhile; finally found it in a casino gift shop. You just pull and twist to open it up.

    I replace notebooks from time to time, with low-cost 'CR Markings' ones that I find at Fred Meyer, $6 or so for a 3-pack. The pen is a similarly low-cost Pilot Varsity. The flashlight experienced a failure this year, but I sent it back to the good guys at CountyComm who fixed it and shipped back to me at no cost.

    I do carry a smartphone, but used that to take the picture. Nothing really special about it; a Lumia 920.

    I always carry more when leaving the house but these three are always on my neck, even when I'm sleeping.

    They cover most of what I consider "things I should be able to do at any time". Light, cut, write, signal, unscrew, remove splinter, open beer :p e.t.c. "Make fire" item is missing because I think it's a slim chance for me to have to immediately leave the house wearing only my boxers and then really need to make a fire... But it's under consideration :D
