    I was wondering does anyone have pins they wear on their edc jacket/backpack. I have a JerzeeDevil forums pin on my old EDC Bag I still need to move over to my new EDC bag. And several on my Denim riding jacket. (Champion Plugs, AAR Cuda Logo, and a few others)

    I have conchos on my Denim Jacket. Small ones for the arms and larger ones for the sides.

    Hi Spade115,

    While this doesn't qualify as EDC, I do have a rather substantial lapel pin collection, numbering somewhere around 3,000. I've got them mounted on 5 cork boards in my office. They range from baseball and basketball-related, to various scientific and aerospace companies and departments, travel destination-related, and many corporate brand pins. My collection started on a Yankees cap, where I placed team and stadium pins of ballparks that I visited. Then I began adding non-baseball pins to the cap. Soon, the hat became too heavy to wear (LOL). So, I migrated the collection to a cork board and went on from there.

    It's been enjoyable finding a pin for something that interested me; I've been fortunate enough to have various government agencies send me pins free of charge if they had extras lying around. I was even able to get 4 or 5 pins from the European Space Agency absolutely free, while our own NASA agency charges for them.

    Thats AWESOME man!! Hey you never know you might end up carrying a pin with you when you go places lol. I always tend to have one on me for some odd reason. (I had one in my pocket yesterday...seriously no clue why...)

    I need to reorganize what I carry pinned to my edc bag and my jacket. (Stays in car unless I need and use on the bike. Always have my pirate flag on there too Patch/Pin)

    I pick up pins when I travel and stick them on the molle of my boonie hat.

    I also often remove the pin and replace it with Velcro and slap it on the loop field of my bags.

    Thats awesome man!

    I currently picked up some leather suspenders (Always wanted some) and it came with some of the cleanest, nicest, fanciest conchos.....so I replaced them with the mini VTwin ones I had on my denim jacket lol.

    Karlito,

    Nice... Last July I went on a Royal Caribbean cruise. I checked everywhere on the ship for a RC lapel pin that I could buy. They looked at me as if I had 3 heads. The only pin made for RC is a "luxury member" (or some such nonsense) which you get when you spend lots of money on several cruises. You can't buy one. As a matter of fact, there isn't a RC pin to be found anywhere, of their logo or anything. Odd
