So your commute downtown to an air conditioned office building might mean some modification to what you carry -- what are some examples of urban office carry?

Looking at the offices I tend to go to:
  • Dress shoes vs. outdoors shoes. I work hard to find shoes that I can walk a long way in that are still appropriate.
  • Inconspicuous folder vs. any kind of fixed blade knife.
  • Small flashlight in my pocket vs. something larger in a belt-pouch.
  • Business appropriate laptop bag (in my case with medical and other emergency gear in it) vs. a hydration pack.
  • I keep a lighter in my laptop bag on general principle (I don't smoke) but nothing more than that for starting a fire.
