    Everything including the keychain clips and rings is Ti, glasses too, except the car key and Utilikey, so not too heavy.

    Last night I was kicking it back on the couch while watching some TV with my little brother. A thought crossed my mind as I reached into my shorts to grab my phone and bumped my Kershaw OD-2. I just realized that even though I was at the most relaxed part of my day I still carried a few things. I would call this my minimum EDC. I carry a bunch of stuff in my shorts every day, but when I'm kicking it back in my gym shorts I still refuse to not carry some stuff. Anyway, here is my minimum EDC.

    Phone
    Small (emphasize small) knife (for repeated flipping...)
    Carmex/chapstick
    Keys (in case I have to get to my car and drive away quick)
    Flashlight (in case of a power shortage)

    I also keep my wallet close to the front door (with license and debit card)
    I also have my shotgun in the room next door. You know, in case...

    Also worth noting is that I never am barefoot. I don't want to be looking around for socks if I need to get my shoes and get out immediately.

    What model of leatherman? Just asking because I can't imagine hauling my Wingman around whilst relaxing. Too big.

    Yeah, I know I just sounded whiny, but hey. Too big is too big. I'm a streamlined EDC'ing machine.

    At home? Minimum is nothing.

    If I'm going out for a walk? Minimum is house keys, a photo ID, and a cell phone. Going out in my car? Car keys, cell phone, wallet.

    At home, minimum is nothing. Anything I need is never more than a room or two away so there's no need to sit with loads of stuff in my pockets.

    I always have a watch on. Most of the time I'm within reach of a flashlight and knife. My man cave is in an interior room, and gets quite dark with all of the lights out.

    If I am sitting around inside my home, I have my backpack full of goodies somewhere nearby.

    If I am out and only carrying the minimum for some reason...
    • Watch
    • Wallet
    • Phone
    • Keys
    • Light
    • Knife
    • Gun
    Most, 90%, of the time I am away from my house I have my backpack with me though.

    Just a quick notification that your thread was merged with this already existing thread. There was no wrong or fault that occured, just two separate threads about an identical topic.

    Carry on.:)

    I recently got the Jotter, Chums Surfshort wallet and Gerber Dime and found my long lost Preon so I am going to try this combination this summer.
    I'll probably put the Dime on my keychain with a Shard I stripped or a new $5 3 inch widgy.
