And it's not just a jacket, it is really an EDC System! I love modular designs and magnet closures. The only problem is that it's easy to get lost in 52 pockets and compartments sometimes laugh.

That's a refillable butane lighter. It's made by Solo. It has a nice strong jet flame, good in windy conditions, and it has a little heft to it, because of the metal case. It's been dropped plenty of times and still works! A couple other nice features are the mirror inside the cap (small, but, it would attract attention) and a compass on top. (Again, just a small button compass, but it is liquid filled and surprisingly accurate.)

I think I bought it at West Marine actually, a few years ago. Wind is a big problem on boats, I bought it for fusing the ends of lines when doing splicing on the boat, but, it has become a regular item for me now, rather than just on the boat.



I bought one of those. It was a Coleman brand and it died shortly after I bought it.

Sorry to hear that, I wonder if it's made by the same folks? Did it have an accident? Mine is made by Solo. I guess Coleman probably could have rebranded it, or it could be another manufacturer. Mine's still giving good service, and really has been banged around alot. I use a premium butane to refill it, but, other than that, haven't done anything to it.

I see that they are no longer sold at West Marine, but, you can get them from Basegear: http://www.basegear.com/soloadventurer.html

Sorry that you had trouble with yours from Coleman, but, they may just replace it if you bring it back. We have a Coleman outlet near us that took back a tent that had a defect, a defect that was severely stressed due to some Boy Scouts that aren't patient with tent zippers. Still, they took it back with a smile and gave us a new one.

Looks like I'm a little late to join this thread, but it seems like a good place for my first post.

My EDC stuff is less "survival" gear than it is "crap I use all the time and don't want to go hunting for."



Here's the list:
Keychain w/ quick detach for car keys
Kershaw Titanium handle folder
Bucktool standard
Business card case w/ cards and 2gb U3 USB flash drive
8-LED mini flashlight w/ laser pointer
Cell phone w/ 1.2mp camera (on a belt clip)
Bluetooth headset (belt holster from folding reading glasses)
Digital pedometer
Wallet
Mini pillbox with daily meds + ibuprofin & Imodium

When at work I often add a mechanical pencil and Post-It pad to my shirt pocket.

Over the weekend I visited my local REI for the first time and picked up a few odds and ends (no, really, I only spent $16 total!)

My favorite is the Swiss-Tech ScrewzAll, a tiny solid stainless steel tool with 4 rather robust little screwdrivers on it that are far superior to those on my Bucktool. I added it to my EDC by attaching it to my keychain.

Best part about this little gem: the price, a modest $5.

I never forget what I EDC. It's all in my pockets, so I see it every day when I put on my pants, plus I use it all on a regular basis, otherwise I wouldn't bother carrying it.

Sometimes I forget what I have in my briefcase, but that's because I don't use it all every day.
