    Hi you all.
    I'd like to start a new personal thread just to track evolution and upgrade of the stuff i carry, sharing it all with the other EDCers. Need as always your suggestions and comments to grow up and better organize the solution.
    Don't want to annoy folks with usual common items i carry like keys, wallet, phone, handkerchief etc. etc.
    They are i.m.o. interesting to see and discuss about too, especially for the comparing possibility with others's solution and choice. But not this time: my interest is actually focused upon pocket content, keychains and toolchains.
    So i would like to share the other items i carry around with me everyday, apart from those that are stored yet in EDC organizers and kits (as f.e. little scissors and blades in IFAK). Sorry for the low quality pics.

    First of all i need to upgrade and implement my actual version of keytools; the ring stays dangled to my belt over the left pocket, items are shifted in the upper side of it (i'm lefthanded).
    [​IMG]
    I made a thoght about: it's better for me to put beside it something more "heavyduty", to have always by hand in my pockets, in addiction to the other items.

    So start to select what to carry from these "categories".

    Multitool.
    [​IMG]
    Opted this week for the LM Juice, my most beloved edc MT always in my upper left trouser's pocket.

    Small flashlight.
    [​IMG]
    Opted (again) for Thrunite T21, great support of strong light flush to my Quantum D2. Stored in upper right pocket.

    A selection of other tools and "gadgets" to choose among for completion of this setup.
    [​IMG]

    These were selected for incoming week, having a look at "known" use opportunities of next days.
    [​IMG]
    The Ti vial is filled with a Ti toothpick, a sewing heavy duty stitch awl and some more rolled cash.
    Assembled not yet, will lay attached to the original Wenger Keychain in my cargo pants right pocket.

    My target should be to upgrade this thread regularly, with adds and variations as needed.

    Hope you did enjoy !!! :)
    Questions and request for info are -as usual- absolutely welcome.
    Nick

    What on earth is that multitool on the upper left? It looks like somebody grafted the pliers from a Swisschamp onto a Gerber Multiplier. :eek:



    It looks terribly impractical, but it has a certain Frankenstein charm about it nonetheless.

    Hi Slipjoint,
    it's a Paul Chen Multi Tasker, a cheap MT (it runs about 15 bucks) but have some very sturdy features for the price. The pliers rotate in opposition to the MT and are spring loaded: it's not a stilish solution but it works. The real plus of this MT are IMO the scissors (they are virtually hd shears more than scissors) and the removable file (found it useful).
    Usually keep this item in my car as backup to ST300.
    Here the complete list of features:
    Stainless steel, 130mm closed and 165mm overall, 250gr. Large Shears/Cutters, Pliers, 2 1/2" Locking Blade with thumb stud, Saw, Removable File, Phillips Screw Driver, 2 Flat Head Screw Drivers, Can Opener, Bottle Opener.
    It also has a handy pocket clip.
    I would definetly recommend it as backup for the price.

    Update: Aug, 9th 2013.

    Time for flashlight mantainance and get some order among the stuff.

    This is the "family" after the level control of batteries, charging, greasing the o-rings etc. etc.
    Waiting for the new Olight S10 to add in. The Small Queen is outstanding in front...

    Giving the rotation to wristwatch too, these are three most preferred.

    [​IMG]
    Sometimes i got to pass several minute before decide which one carry, i love them all at the same level...

    Today's pockets dump; first foto of my new HTC HD2 (not a new model, but a brand new one).
    Not carried the kefiah, just used as background for the pics.

    [​IMG]

    Got to update the watch date (...). Carried the Squirt because i didn't realize the Juice was in my pocket yet (it's hard to stand up in the morning for me, in this period :sleep: )
    Oh if anyone is interested, the big blue ring is a rappeling item (25 KiloNewton = 2.550 kgs), i carry it sometime because i found that it's perfect just for fiddling ...:D.

    Hope you enjoed.
    "See" you soon.
    Nick

    Update: Aug, 12th 2013.

    Setup and adjust of MaxPed EDC.
    Time has come to control and swap the gear in it. Some changes not of "A" priority but still effective (added a widgy pry bar, reloaded the whole stuff in a different way, more flat and compact).



    [​IMG]

    And finally decided today what to do with my "last in" Ti dogtag, this is the front.
    [​IMG]

    And this is the rear (GITB tape full covered).

    Update: Aug, 13th 2013.

    First attempt to do a kaijin shaped hook.
    Used a stainless steel welding rod, copper coated wire for wrapping. And a couple of pliers.
    As everybody can easily realize, it's not a success, but it works. Gonna try again, maybe.
    [​IMG]

    Experience is half of the work. Ain't got it.

    This stuff is for my tomorrow more "user friendly" attempts (or this i hope) for lanyard and beads.
    [​IMG]

    All the Best to you all.
