EDC

All the other team members are showing off their wares, so suppose I'd better join the herd. :)  Problem is I actually have more than one EDC bag depending on things like day of the week, mode of transport, and destination. Things just seem to move in and out of different bags. I've just grabbed [...]

A little late to the EDC party, but then again I was busy cleaning out my bag for spring cleaning!   I regularly carry a laptop bag with me on a daily basis since my laptop is my daily work computer as well as my work-at-home computer.  Not pictured are a couple of ink pens, [...]

Recently Julie asked us to do a post on what we carry every day.  My two bags vary depending on if it's a weekday or a weekend. I'm a computer technician, so my everyday carry bag is pretty heavy.  It needs to be a mobile workstation. (See lead photo.)   I usually carry a Fossil [...]

My EDC is actually pretty light compared to a few years back when I carried extra things like a laptop and loads of paperwork.  I have 3 businesses in 3 different locations so it wasn't ideal to always have to carry so many things around, even though the car would be the one carrying it.  [...]

When Julie dropped her latest EDC on us, it was interesting to see everything she carries on a daily basis. (My shoulder hurts just viewing it.) When she asked us to share our EDC's with everyone, I ended up being in what I found to be a not so unique situation; I work from home, [...]

I have not one standard geek bag, but three! I have a favorite for work, a different one for days off, and, if I'm taking my lunch to work, I have my required condiment and tools selection. Let's start with the last mentioned - my lunch kit. For a wedding present several decades ago, my [...]

I have been doing my best to minimize what I carry with me on a regular basis for years now. It is a constant battle between what I might need and the reality of what I have time to use/deal with in a given day. My type-A personality is always pushing me to bring a mountain [...]

Are you a paracord junkie? Do you whip out that trusty paracord at the drop of a hat to secure things in your everyday life? After you are done securing what ever it was with your trusty paracord do you cuss trying take the knots out of the cord? If you answered yes to any [...]

Recently, Julie asked every one on the Gadgeteer team to show what they carry with them on a daily basis. Well, since I began reviewing gadgets – mostly audio related – my backpack has become fuller and heavier. I decided to just list what was in my backpack on the day I took the photo. [...]

Others have posted their everyday carry bags, so I thought I would post mine as well. However, I am a homemaker who focuses on karate, so my EDC bag is much different than my fellow Gadgeteers. I do not have a backpack or special bag for everyday; I just use my purse. It's boring and [...]

Recently, Julie suggested we follow up on what WE carry on an everyday basis.  She's set the standard, so here's what I carry! First you'll notice my bag of choice is the latest version of the Tom Bihn Ristretto Bag for iPad that I reviewed in January 2013.  Durable, practical, good looking! Although the Ristretto has a [...]

I don't have a 9-5 job.  I work from home, and I don't have to carry a huge gear bag with me everywhere I go.  In the past, I've used just a Dooney & Bourke Multi-Function wallet to carry my ID, a couple of cards, and my phone as my go-to-lunch wallet.  I recently decided [...]

A few days ago I posted a news item about the INOVA Microlight STS keychain flashlight. We've all seen similar looking flashlights small enough to easily fit on a keychain, but the INOVA Microlight STS Swipe to Shine from Nite Ize has something I've never seen before with any flashlight... touch/gesture controls. That's right, there are [...]

The folks who brought us the Fish Bone knotless gear tie are at it again, this time with a new and improved knotless gear tie called the Piranha. The Piranha is a new design using all the feedback that the creator of the Fish Bone (Brent Garcia) received from that project. Instead of tying a [...]

I may have mentioned before that I am fringe Paracord junkie. I like Paracord survival bracelets, but could never find a cool clasp so I never made one. The Knottology Expedition Clasps may have just changed that for me. Unlike a lot of Paracord clasps the Expedition clasps are dual functional. The Expeditions come in four [...]

  Need a new multi-functional item for your EDC? Then take a look at the Tactical Pen from Cybernetic Research Labs. What makes this pen different from others is the addition of a carbide end-piece that can be used as an emergency glass breaker. The pen is built of several connecting sections, allowing for multiple [...]

I thought it might be interesting and useful for me to capture a visual and text list of my EDC (Every Day Carry) gear on a monthly basis. Seeing my gear might give you ideas for your own EDC and I'm hoping you might make suggestions for things I should look at that might replace [...]

If you're like Dr. Sheldon Cooper, you spend a lot of time working in front of a whiteboard.  If you hate finding yourself with a thought but no board upon which to expand your thoughts, you'll want to check out the Noteboard Foldable Pocket Whiteboard from ThinkGeek.  When folded, it has the same footprint as a [...]
