    When my Inka pen and Fenix EO1 arrived in the post the wife commented on how cool they were and that she wanted them in.....Pink with Hello Kitty on them. Yeah, I know. Anyway, I have got her a purple fenix which she is delighted with.

    So the question, what do your significant others carry and how 'girly' can you get, while still being practical.

    I don't really trust her with this...

    None of the women I know want girly gear but I am sure some do. I do not have much to add here.

    Regardless of color, I think it's great that she shares some of your interests in EDC gear. Besides, the pinks, purples, and Hello Kitty stickers ensure that she won't pick up your gear by mistake (nor the reverse!).

    Best wishes,
    Dirty Bob

    My significant other might carry a pink mini grip if I gave her one (to distract her from the buck alpha she adopted). In general however, she carries regular colored EDC.

    I must agree with the above, no one can claim that the thought that rifle was theirs.

    Me and my SO sometime trade each other our Swiss stuff on our keychains, and also she doesn't really mind carrying some of my EDC's on her specially the self defense once. And as for pinks and Hello Kitty's she doesn't really like them so I guess that's a plus for me :thumbsup: !!!

    Haha what a great subject. My girlfriends b-day is coming up and I was planning on buying her a new purse. I'm gonna fill it with a Pink Leatherman, Pink Fenix FlashLight, And a Pink can of mace. She already carries the pink switchblade I bought her.

    My wife doesn't have any girly gear yet. She has good taste in gear though. Took my KeyCom from me in 2 seconds flat! :shocked:

    Does a Galco holster purse count as girly? She does want one of those Kalashnakitty shirts...

    My Mom has a lavender Spyderco Ladybug attached to her cell phone lanyard. It's how I got her to carry a knife. Now she says she's so used to it she could never live without it. I bought her a larger pink Delica for Christmas, but she won't carry it. She leaves it in the desk drawer and uses it to open packages.

    I would own that pink/hello kitty ar in a second. I also always said I would love to buy a pink lower for my glock. Nothing says I despise you as shooting them with a "girlie" gun :D

    You know, most women that I know (and these include smokin' hot babes) don't really like all these pastel colors. There is plenty disdain for pink gear. From my experience most women like gear that is suitable for their needs and physical attributes.

    Hence, the E1E and mini Gerber Paraframe that the wifey carries. It's light, not so tacti-cool, and small enough for her hands. Handy, yes. Capability, maybe. She knows enough what gear I carry, where I carry, and how to use what I carry. Since I have seen here rifling through my stuff, it's more of the pack-mule mentality, I suppose.

    Think: Angelina Jolie, as Mrs. Jane Smith, with all her gear. Now, imagine her with the HK with the Pink Hello Kitty Lower.

    That statement will get you skinned around most of the women I know.
