    For me-
    Oakely sunglasses (carried in pelican Case)
    Digital camera (carried in Pelican Case)
    Camelbak water bottle
    Mechanix Gloves (for lifting and shooting)
    SkelGel (known to the rest of the world as hand sanitizer)


    This is carried in a large GP pouch from Diamondback inside whatever BOE I am using depending on the needs of the day. Knowing the frequency of use for an item impacts on how it is carried. I am a fan of being sure to carry things I know I will need before worrying about what I might need. Having the core makes it easier for me to build my overall kit.

    My prescription sunglasses get daily use
    Orbit Strawberry Mint gum sees almost daily use
    Church keys every Sunday and sometimes during the week*
    Painkillers from my FAK
    Zebra F-301 pen, even though I also have one in my wallet

    *I guess that means it's not actually a BOE

    Funny, I've been on vacation for the past six days...things I've used out of my BOE are my nalgene bottle, MP3 player, cell charger and "the utensils" from Guyot designs.

    Just got back from a quick vacation to the coast with the family. My five most used items were:

    iPhone
    Sunglasses
    Nikon D50 DSLR
    Garmin Vista HCx GPS
    Pilot G2 Pen

    I'd like to say that the Wave clipped to my pocket or the Ra EDC flashlight in my bag saved the day, but they hardly even get an honorable mention. For this trip my "Bag of Evil" wound up becoming a "Bin of Evil" thanks to a small Rubbermaid Actionpacker. Kept everything from rolling around in the trunk and getting smashed, especially the camera.

    Here's a gratuitous photo of some fishing boats in Newport... mmm, fresh fish and chips.
