    Hi,

    I though I'd introduce myself before posting here.

    I'm a newbie from Bristol here in the UK.

    Although I've been carrying stuff regularly for years, I've only come across the term "EDC" in the last month. Thought I'd check out what others carry and see if I can enhance my gear.

    I'm interested in different types of kit and am trying to put together different kits for different situations from what I have and what I can get.

    Currently trying to put together an urban EDC kit for general city carry going to and from work, and also a bushcraft kit for when I go out hiking.

    Thanks for the welcome guys.

    My gear's a work in progress, until last year I never worried about what I carried so frequently ended up with too much of the wrong stuff so decided to sort it out properly now.

    I've just changed jobs to one that requires a bit of a different tool set (hardware IT tester to software IT tester) and spend a lot of time on the train (work in Gloucester now instead of Bristol) so have an opportunity to sort this lot out.

    I'll post a thread with my current setup (it's not that great, hence needing to change it) and see what comes out of that.

    Schnurri, Bristol is a great place, it's a major English city, but one that is often overlooked being close to the Welsh capital of Cardiff and the historic city of Bath. Bristol is a great looking city that is not too large - it's said that you are never more that 10 minutes away from greenery no matter where you are. We've a lot of culture with our maritime, aerospace and engineering heritage and a great nightlife. There's plenty to do and enjoy here, so do come.

    I think that's enough of me waxing lyrical about my home town.

    I know that Bristol is a smashing town, I only never managed to go there. Been to Bath a couple of times and spent the last two summer vacations in Devon & Cornwall. On out next trip there (probably next year), Bristol might be an option as a stop along the road.

    Thanks for all the welcomes, nice to see we have a broad range of people from all over the world here and it's nice also to find some local lads as well.

    Going to post my current urban/work EDC soon. It needs modifying for my new job and I have a few items that might get a few comments, so please be gentle.
