    Every Day Carry vs Every Day Use

    Now more than ever I am living out of the Bag of Evil, to the point that when I am home and need something I get it out of my bag instead of around the house. There are things I carry because I can see myself needing them like-

    RMJ Shrike Tomahawk (breaching vehicles at a car wreck)
    Diamondback Tactical Ripaway Trauma Kit

    But what about things you will use every day. Here are a few things I don't go 24 hrs without using.

    Oakley Sunglasses in Pelican 130 Case
    Camera in Pelican 120 Case
    Hand Sanitizer (Skell Gel)
    Sherpa Sharpie marker from Blue Line Gear
    Ti Zippo with torch insert
    Pre packed coffee packs with coffee and Slenda
    TUMS
    RX Meds (taken for the protection of others)
    Mechanix Gloves ( I am a eye and hand pro Nazi)
    Leatherman Squirt S2
    Survivor Flash Drive
    Zip-Ties
    Parachute Cord
    Rubber Bands
    Zebra 701 pen
    Cheap Aluminum water bottle soon to be replaced by a Klean Kanteen from Going Gear.

    All off the little stuff is carried in an Eagle Industries Small Shaving Kit pouch. These pouches rock.

    I am interested to hear what every one uses vs what they carry. - George

    I don't think there is a single item that I carry besides my keys and my Android phone (Neither of which I consider part of my "gear") that I use EVERY day. My light is by far my most used item followed by my Gerber crucial tool. The stuff in my maxpeidtion bag rarely gets used except for maybe the camera. The other items like the first aid kit, rain ponchos, full size multi tool, second knife etc etc etc are used pretty rarely or never.

    I have a edc bag but I ran into what both of you are saying, rarely or never use it alot of it. Yes I understand the haveing to much is better then not haveing, but it's hard to keep with it. I just run with what I use multitool, flashlight, iphone. The only EDC I don't use everyday is defensive knife, extra mag, and Kahr PM9.
