    Looks good to me. That's quite a lot of kit to carry, but if you need it all, then of course you should have it.

    I'll have to post some more pictures. :laugh: The vic bag at the top that this fits in is no bigger than a brief case, but honestly that usually stays in the car. The second and third picture are really all I carry along with the one labeled pockets. That third picture shows the case is no bigger than a day planner, and it includes everything in the next three pictures.

    Wow, I'd love to find that bag lying on my doorstep or under the Christmas tree! Nice stuff. Just curious, at quick glance I think I counted over a dozen knives, do you ever track how often they each get used? I know the old saying two is one and one is none (and three is for me :) ), but a dozen might be an opportunity to lighten the load a bit if any of them don't see any usage? Incidentally, I'd be happy to carry some of them for you to help share the load :)

    I like the credit card sized sewing kit. That is pretty nifty.

    Great post. That's a very well organized kit! :cheers:

    Any chance of a quick description of the various pouches/organizers? Some of them look very interesting!

    Ok I didn't even realize there were eleven knives. :laugh: I guess that is the one flaw with a modular system, You feel like each kit needs a dedicated knife (or three.)

    The sewing kit is sometimes available on ebay for a few bucks as an airline card sewing kit. If you look around you probably can find one. They're cheap quality but in a pinch they get the job done.


    I'm probably going to redo the pictures soon when my camera finishes charging.
    I'll get more description on the bags when I do that.

    The smaller bag is a case logic hard drive case. Just the right size for a moleskin notebook.

    The larger case I found at Goodwill, it reads bonafon which is a company that makes audio equipment apparently. So um yeah I have no clue how to get another one like it.

    I like the modular system - very well thought out. It looks like you can easily transfer cases to another bag or, if necessary, grab a case or two and still have most of what you need.

    I hope you don't mind, but I will probably be stealing some of your ideas for my own kit :thumbsup:

    With all the space you have in there (especially after clearing out a knife or two), I would add a full size screwdriver with exchangeable bits. Nothing I hate more than unscrewing something that takes some elbow grease with a pen driver or multitool that you can't get any real purchase or leverage on.

    If you're a troubleshooter I might add an Ultimate Boot CD.

    No worries everything I have is just stuff I learned about here.

    And my ideas exactly on modularity, which is why there is so much redundancy in the knife department people. I keep a knife in most of the kits so that I have one with me appropriate to the kind of kit I needed for that day. Sheesh it's like none of you have ever carried one too many knives. :laugh:


    Ajax- I do have something slightly better than the boot cd from work, but the only way to get it is work for tech support at a big box retail store or pirate it.

    I'd like to find a great high torque auto-loading precision screwdriver with about 8 bits that would fit in a front jeans pocket. Unfortunately no one has had the foresight to build such perfection yet. If you find one I would buy it in a heartbeat.

    This is about as close to it as I have found and it still isn't built the way it should be to earn a spot amongst such proud tools. (tongue planted firmly in cheek.) But seriously if anyone can find a perfect screwdriver, I've spent a long time searching for one.

    Love the pair of Rotring 600s. I've got several of the knurled grip ones. I'm guessing EDC geeks fall easily into the pen geek category too.

    I like your kit. It has been pointed out before that it's rather excessive, but if you are willing to put up with the weight and the bulk (and obviously you do), it's sure a lot of capability in one bag. A bag that is very low profile, I might add. From the look of it, one would expect a laptop and some paperwork in it, not a truckload of tools.

    One caveat, though: I recognize the little pre-assembled sewing kit. It's one of the variety you get at a supermarket for two bucks, right? I think I had exactly the same model a year or so ago. The thread in it, well, sucks. Rippes easily. Better off replacing the thread with a higher quality more rugged.
