    Default What goes where?

    Whatís up guys


    What piece of edc gear goes where, ie whatís pockets?


    Every single day , all of my stuff no matter what goes into the same place . The gear may change from time to time but the pockets or places stay the same .

    For instance mine are

    Front right pants pocket- clipped is a knife always , inside is my wallet, Iíve long since changed to a front carry minimalist style wallet (Trayvax accent) to be exact .

    Left front pocket- is my car key and anything spare is my juul or ink pen

    Left back pocket is usually my phone

    Right back pocket is my light , either in the pocket or clipped depending on the size . Lately itís been smaller lights since itís usually just sitting in there

    And on my 4oclock position belt loop is my keys

    Six oíclock is my pistol if Iím carrying . But we live in a super small town and everyone knows everyone so I donít carry often unless itís out of town .

    How / where do you guys carry your gear?


    P.s.

    I didnít know where else to post this ,

    An edc subforum would be ideal (IMO)

    I always tossed my edc stuff in my pockets and went out the door. It never really dawned on me that I was being very specific as to were I was putting it. But it always goes in the same spot. Right front a fisher Bullet space pen A small edc light And a 1922 silver dollar that belonged to my dad. Left front a brass zippo that belonged to my fiancť.For remembrance I have never smoked. Back left wallet. Back right chew ď Skoal mintĒ really should stop that. And a phone on belt left side MD2 on the right. Dam didnít think about it till now but thatís a lot of stuff 😁😁

    Oh and a Gerber flat iron folder it left front as well

    Right pocket, knife and sturdy pen (my self defense weapon). Bic lighter, I donít smoke anymore, but believe in always having a way to make fire.

    Left pocket, Flashlight and airpod pros.

    Wallet is attached to my phone with extra cash hidden in the case.

    I always have a single wall steel water bottle close by too

    He said a pen is his self defense weapon, or just the thread in general? I switch between a few different ones depending on where Iím going and what Iím doing.

    In my front left pocket goes my phone with my Skaha 2 clipped to the pocket. Right is my minimalist wallet and sometimes skinth pocket sheath with victorinox pioneer x, small prytool, spare battery in an oveready capsule and pen (if I donít carry the sheath everything gets split up - pen clipped to pocket and victorinox and battery capsule flanking the wallet)

    on my belt is HDS rotary in a Thorís hammer holster. At night, I will have my Malkoff MD2 M61N with surefire tailcap next to it for longer runtimes on high.

    Watch on my wrist.

    Summer EDC presents a very serious, logistical, first world problem. I've got four pockets and I sit on two of them. Lately, I've lost interest in belt carrying anything, except for fat rolls. Fat rolls, exacerbated by lock down, ride on the belt. That means that the stupid phone, which is the size of a piece of toast, must live in my front left pocket alongside my flashlight. The knife lives clipped to my right pocket, but what do I do with my keys? I can either sit on them all day (back pocket) or I can put them in the front right with the knife. This is bollocks because the car key always slips between the handle scales of the pocket knife and harasses the edge of said knife. Solution? I stuff the cluster of keys into a felt pouch, which then goes into the right front pocket and defends the edge of my knife. Now the wallet. Front pockets are occupied, so I'm left with sitting on the wallet. Fortunately, my obsession with EDC gear means that the wallet is quite thin. So I sit on it, right side. Left rear pocket is unoccupied.

    Man purse, anyone?

    Get some pants/ shorts from Vertx or triple Aught design. Lots of pockets. Some are very discreet.

    How do you like the triple aught pants? I've been rocking Levi's for 35 years and I'm thinking about switching.

    I have a bunch of TAD apparel and pretty much that is all I wear for shorts, pants and jeans now. Not super into their shirts/ jackets. But their pants/ shorts are top notch. Two pairs of their jeans replaced several pairs of Leviís for me. Plus USA made.

    I can provide additional info if youíd like.

    5.11 is good. I just have a issue with their branding.

    On the 511s does the logo stick out like a sore thumb? The problem I have with them is I carry a gun all day every day no matter where I go. When I spot someone wearing 511 I automatically start to look for their gun and normally spot it. So it kinda defeats the concept on CCW

    Default Re: What goes where?

    Right front: knife (clipped), keys (clipped)*, pen, sharpie, spoon, spare battery capsule

    Left front: phone, flashlight (clipped)**

    Right rear: leather slip sheath with Victorinox Pioneer and AAA backup light held side by side

    Left rear: wallet

    * Unless I'm riding, then the keys go in pocket of motorcycle jacket
    ** Unless I'm wearing pants with 5th pocket, then flashlight goes there instead

    If I have cause to I'll carry a multitool in a belt pouch or a small sheath knife but those don't happen very often, especially not in the current climate. Never carried a gun and I have no intention of changing that.

    Clipped to left front pocket, flashlight. Clipped to right front, knife. Wallet goes in right front, phone goes in left front. Appendix carry right side personal peacekeeping device. Coin pocket on right side, refill for appendix carried device and a mini bic lighter. The only deviation to this is when I pocket carry peacekeeping device in right front pocket. Then waller goes right rear, knife goes into left front in a pocket slip with mini bic lighter. (I don't smoke.) The above depends on type of pants, jeans or cargo shorts/ cargo pants. And how baggy a shirt I can get away with. 95% of the time, casual.
