I updated my EDC.

I've been carrying the Maxpedition EDC pouch for the past few weeks and I'm loving it. I did a quick search and there is about $150.00-$220.00 worth of stuff in there.

After much debate on what to put on my key chain for EDC I finally decided to go with a keyport and a few tools for daily use. I bought the keyport to help organize my car keys, house key, gun safe keys, PO BOX key, and my 32gig memory card. The keyport keeps all of those keys organized in a really neat case for easy / quick access. I also ordered the Leatherma Squirt PS4 (work related), Voleno Designs D2 (tiny 120 lumens light), and Leatherman Piranha (work related) to add to my key chain.


As of right now I'm constantly fishing my keys out of the bottom of my work bag and or cargo pockets. It drives me nuts constantly fumbling through my keys in the dark and or not being able to find them. After doing a little research I got an idea from another forum about taking an old money clip and turning it into a pocket hanger for my keys.


I started off with a stainless steel money cliff that my parents gave me year and years ago.

I then applied mustard using a paper towel to the metal covering it from top to bottom. I then let it sit for roughly 2-3 hours before I removed the mustard.

912467_4575619607642_1714220718_n.jpg



After roughly 2-3 hours I then took the money clip to the sink and washed off all the mustard with soap and water. After removing all the mustard I was left with a nice multi color patina.

971737_624695107549974_1691493207_n.jpg



I can't wait to get home so I can drill a few holes into the money clip. I thinking I'm going to go with quick detach key rings. I'm also thinking of taking the dremel to it and cutting a bottle opener into the top. In the end I would like the end result to look something like this.

Next I managed to find some quick detach hanger (not sold on color but you get the idea).
1380_624777527541732_396541277_n.jpg



I then headed to the drill press and made 5 holes spaced across the back of the money clip. Went with 5 holes because I plan on having 5 things attached to the pocket hanger.

999576_624777517541733_1951415326_n.jpg



And here is the finished product with a few random keys and things I had at my disposal. All n all I'm very happy with the final product and I can't wait to get my EDC items in.

Soon it will be sporting a keyport (housing my two car keys, two safe keys, 1 house key, and a 32 gig memory card), Leatherman Squirt, Leatherman Piranha, peanut (lighter), and Veleno Designs D2 (120 lumens micro light). Here are a couple of shots of how it will hang once in your pocket.

Thoughts, suggestions, and ideas for improvement would be more than welcome.

There's now way! I simply can't believe the amount of stuff people carry. I can't even stand the feel of a stick of Chapstick in my pocket going horizontal and looking/feeling horrible.

Still waiting on a fee thing to arrive to finish out my pocket EDC items. But here is what I just recently started carrying this week.

969304_633119856707499_144569519_n.jpg

Camelbak which holds roughly 1 gallon of water
602768_633119860040832_1271619718_n.jpg

Springfield XDs .45 with Virginian C5L laser / light, one 5 round back up mag, and two Pearce Grip extensions. It sits nicely tucked in a Remora holster in the bottom pocket of the Camelbak. On the ride side just below the top pocket there is an area to hold my nitecore Mh2C. Last but not least the top pocket houses my Spyderco Manix 2XL and usually some kind of energy bar or gel. Once the squirt arrives the juice S2 will go into the top pocket along with a set of nice headphones.
945979_633119870040831_1215245421_n.jpg

adding to what's listed above is my EDC blade (benchmade Volli), wallet, pocket light (nitecore MT2A), and my key chain (maratac pea nut lighter, schrade pocket tool, leatherman Juice S2 soon to be replaced by smaller Leatherman squirt PS4, keys soon to be replaced by a keyport, and veleno designs D2 light).

Im been thinking about putting together a small med kit to deal with a range accident, work related injuries, and other trama related incidents. I kind of look at it as my mini go bag / younger and fanny pack.

Just curious, a lot of you guys say you carry stuff in your bags. What kind of bags do you guys use?

Hello there,

I am new here and have been more of a knife enthusiast than a light enthusiast. I have made the decision to carry a light every day and just ordered a SWM V11R, it should get here next week. Meanwhile, the only light I have is the light on my iPhone. My EDC is usually my phone, keys, wallet, Hinderer XM-18 (or CRK Sebenza 25, depending on the attire), an Alox Farmer, G-Shock Riseman (or Hamilton Pilot) and eventually a new light! Here are a couple pics of what I have today:





I promise to add more Light content when my V11R arrives!
