As for my every day carry, I have the usual: Money, debit card, credit cards, driver license, medical insurance information, list of medications, contact information, etcetera. I also have my cell phone, Ultralight.5, EMT sheers (my tool of choice), Fox40 whistle, pocket-size LED flashlight and medications. Also I often have on me a .5 liter bottle of water.

Hi again Jeanette. My EDC starts to include stuff like spare light weight gloves, a toque and a warm jacket now that winter is coming on.

I have items such as tools and gloves in my car, but I thought EDC refers to items one has on them.

Yes, I live in Canada. As soon as it is fall the jacket goes everywhere with spare gloves and toque in the pockets.

When winter hits the jacket becomes a Parka, with mitts and toque.

UPDATE

There's now a Res-Q-Me hanging from the rearview mirror. The Lifehammer is now in the glove compartment until I get a new mounting bracket.

There's a large FAK under the passenger seat. (Well, large by commercial standards -- here it's more like "a good start". smile )

And I now have two Photons in addition to the Maglite Solitaire.

I put an AMK Mini-FAK and a Spark-Lite & Tinder in my bag, and I think I'm set for the scenario I outlined in the original post.

Thank you ALL for your inputs!

Rearview mirrors have a tendency to break off in a car-crash.

You might want to consider putting it on your car keys or attaching it to your seatbelt with a ziptie instead..
