    Hi all...noob here from AZ here. Not particularly new to EDC stuff though.

    Typical EDC (on my person, ie, not counting day pack) is as follows:

    Wallet
    Keys (w/ thumb drive)
    iPhone 4S (w/ Nite Ize clip)
    Maratac AAA OR Olight i3 EOS
    Chapstick
    Small first aid kit (bandaids, alcohol swabs, antibiotic gel, ibuprofen, allergy meds, etc)
    Leatherman Juice S2 (w/ Nite Ize clip)
    Guinness Pen I bought in Dublin Ireland (w/ built in bottle opener)
    Spare vehicle keys
    Small spiral notebook & 1" pencil (just a reg pencil cut down)
    Diffuser cone for flashlight
    Spyderco Para Military2
    Spyderco Dragonfly2 G10 OR Buck Vantage Pro Small OR Kershaw Chill
    (though I am getting a Spydie Chaparral for Christmas so I am sure it will get a good share of pocket time too)
    Ruger LCP .380ACP (AZ 100th anniversary edition)*

    *Most of the time I keep the LCP in my day pack because I can't carry it at work, when not at work I carry it in a pocket holster or a Mic holster from Glocktech.

    Day pack obviously has tons more stuff...never leave the house without it (well, 95% of the time).

    Anyway, like most of you folks I just dig working on my evolving EDC system (& I stress the world system as my OCD kicks in when it comes I EDC & I have to have my system! LOL!!!).

    Thanks... and no prob with the gear rundown. The key to carrying all the crap in my pockets is buying my jeans 1 size to big at the waist. I have found that I can wear Levi 501s (my preferred jeans) in a 33 waist without a belt. If I buy them in 34s though I do need a belt (which is fine, I prefer to wear a belt for holster reasons anyway), but the pockets themselves are looser (because the pants are looser) and thus more forgiving as you stuff them with things! And frankly those Nite Ize clips make it possible to pull the whole system together. Without them the Leatherman was a pain to carry in 501s. And the iPhone too because it just took up far too much pocket real estate at the bottom of my left front pocket. But those Nite Ize clips hold them right where you want them and make it awesome.

    But I have to be honest, when I am wearing the 501s the small spiral notebook, the spare keys & the diffuser cone (all of which ride in a stout little zip lock plastic pouch) go into the day pack. Weekends are when I wear the 501s so I make that sacrifice/mod to my system for the weekends... during the week I wear Woolrich Elite Lightweight Tactical Pants. In these I have all the pocket space (and then some) to fit the little zip lock pouch (and more if I wanted). I wear the Woolrich Elite's to work everyday (have them in multiple colors). They are very much the perfect tac-pant to me. 100% cotton, loaded with pockets (with a dedicated "normal" wallet pocket), lightweight ripstop and good looking. They are not too tacticool (ie, the look more like a cross between dockers and cargo pants) and thus work great for work in a business casual setting.

    welcome to the forums! 501's are also my EDC jeans :) though i typically wear mine a little more fitted, and carry minimal gear with me ( blade, keys with light, chapstick, pen, field notes) The rest of my gear other than that goes in my backpack.
