If its just the Vic spirit s in my pocket, there's no issue. But there usually is a cell phone or two, and the urban wallet mentioned above.

I had to move my cell phone back to my pocket after I caught it on a desk and broke the belt clip. So I have a cell phone and small case with my other micro sd cards, both my wallets, leatherman, bluetooth, etc. When shopping for pants I stick my hands in the pockets to see how deep they are.

This is one more reason to look forward to casual Friday; I can wear cargo pants with plenty of pockets. grin

My most bulky items are my wallet and my phone. If I have those in my two front pockets they look loaded, and I'm not going to leave either behind. The Juice is a relatively small tool (compared to the Vic Swiss Tool etc) and isn't noticeable beside my wallet.

I find it worth buying gentleman's trousers that have two rear pockets, plus a front-right fob pocket, in addition to the usual two front pockets.

I carry a lot, but most of it is small. I don't carry a Fresnel lens or mirror in my wallet because there just isn't room. I don't carry any pills because I don't like to take them out of their wrapping, and with their wrapping they are again quite bulky.
