What do you bring when you leave the house?
Have you added anything new recently?

Love the lightweight and cheap versions of the Buck 110. A really good knife made even better.

Still carrying a Victorinox Farmer.

AA/14500 flashlight for the past year has been a Lumintop Tool AA v2.0. Has been used daily even if just for going to bed.
The 14500 (micro usb rechargeable) battery that it came with still seems fine too.

I have two different EDC load-outs, one that I carry when I go to work and another when I'm off. The primary difference is that I can't have a firearm on property, technically not even in my car (although it's hard to imagine how anyone would ever know). So when I am at work my EDC is my keys, an Olight i3E EOS flashlight, a Spyderco Dragonfly in HAP40 and my wallet. When I'm off I carry a proper flashlight (usually a Malkoff MDC), an HK P2000 in 9mm, a spare magazine at 9:00 o'clock in a Safariland 123 Horizontal Mag Pouch and a Spyderco Delica in HAP40.

  • Sig Sauer P320 XCompact (only where legal!) in a Rhino Concealment IWB holster
  • 21rd spare magazine in a Tulster Echo magazine carrier
  • Ritter Mk1-G2 in M390 steel
  • 4Sevens titanium whistle (on keyring)
  • LM Style PS (on keyring)
  • Prometheus Beta QR v2 (on keyring)
  • Car key and house keys
  • Primary flashlight: Most commonly either Klarus E1 or Surefire Stiletto Pro
  • POM Pepper Spray (also only where legal)
  • iPhone
  • Wallet
  • A pen, often a Ti Pocket Pro

We had the tornado sirens going off and I had just installed a very young Eldest Offspring in our designated tornado shelter room. I needed to get the other Offspring and the dogs downstairs when the power went out. Having another flashlight on-body would have been really handy at that moment, and that was the last day that I didn’t carry two. YMMV.
