This is all I must have while going anywhere:

- Slim wallet with little cash/ credit cards/ driving licence;
- Cell phone(s)
- Car keys if driving.

Quite frequently, it is actually limited to this only unless I'm headed to office etc in which case i have all the extras like office bag; tiffin etc. I do wear a watch or glares etc when I want to but again very very often I won't bother.

My list is pretty small and I have listed the items that are almost stashed permanently in the car.

1. Small Knife for cutting fruits
2. Mobile Charger and cables for both Iphone and Androids
3. Body Spray
4. Steel Water bottle. (I own a Jazz and it has a fantastic bottle holder)
5. Polarized Sun Glasses.
6. Hair Comb

I need a solution for my problem. I carry two smartphones - Motorola G4 Plus and a IPhone 6s plus. The Moto is for Work and IPhone for Play. And for sometime to come, I plan to carry both. In the current configuration, I keep the wallet on the right-side trouser back-pocket. And the two phones on my left-side back-pocket. But it becomes a pain specially when I sit down somewhere temporarily.

Need a solution for this. Maybe a belt-pouch which can hold two big smartphones? And I need this majorly for use during my office-time. So the solution has to look professional.

Because I have replied, I don't carry anything apart from my phone, a watch [of course a handkerchief is a must have] and some cash & maybe a card holder.

My car has tissues, wet wipes, sanitizer, liquid soap, type C, B & iPhone cable, a small perfume [50ml] and sun-glass.

This is enough for my commutes which ranges from 50 kms to 300 kms [depending on site]. And yes reusable steel water bottles.

I see so many of you carrying DL's & other hard-copies, is Digi-Locker not accepted?

The Everyday Carry Thread - What do you carry with you everyday?-whatsapp-image-20191119-16.58.52.jpeg

My watch is a Edifice, the phones are self explanatory, the photo was taken with the 3rd phone which is a Galaxy Tab4, Montblanc slim wallet, Montblanc pen, the NC headphones are Bose QC25.

The medicines are for my migraine attacks and the usual allergy induced stuff, the spray is for my knee joint which i have managed to somehow injure multiple times (don't ask).

Before anybody asks, yes i m in CCU airport waiting for my flight which is delayed; they have this lovely XC 90 on display here and i took my time going over it. Now its time for some TBHP!

Nice to see someone using a Filson bag!
I love my Filson 256 and it's been my daily driver for over 5 years. Tried the Peak Design Everyday backpack for daily use but it just feels too bulky.

I have a amazon basics case which always has:

a.) Xiaomi 20000Mhz powerbank
b.) Two chargers - one for my iphone and my Galaxy Note 8
c.) Galaxy watch wireless charger and cable.
d.) Two ear phones for Iphone and android.
e.) Portronics Harmonics foldable bluetooth neckband.

Outside the case, my wallet will have 1 debit card and a credit card. The rest of the insane number of cards (some of them may have even expired) lying in a card holder in my slazenger backpack.

My EDC is completely low key and compared to some that have been posted here on this thread, mine includes very basic and cheap stuff.
1. My glasses (with UV protection and anti-glare)
2. Mi A3 6/128GB
3. Allen Solly wallet with the debit cards, cash and other point based cards from various retailers.
4. 3M Micropore (Totally worth it if you are a doc and especially useful if you are doing post-graduation in Indian medical colleges)
5. My humble blue pen (as long as it works, any brand is ok for me )
6. My favourite - My Grand i10 keyfob with the Team-BHP keychain and other keys.
7. Citizen watch

I hate carrying too many things in my pockets. So pocket carry is limited to:
- A very slim wallet with 1 credit card, drivers license and some cash. No coins.
- Car keys
- Nokia 6.1 plus (which is still too large a phone for my liking)

I freelance, supporting IT infrastructure for clients for a living. This means I have to carry my backpack with me or at least have it in my car at all times. The day I leave it home, is the day I get a call from a frantic client. My backpack always has at least 6 separate compartments so I can store my carry items:
- Macbook Air
- Debit card
- Client office ID cards
- A Sheaffer pen
- Victorinox swiss army knife
- 2 USB cables
- 2 Sandisk pen drives
- A pair of earphones
- Thunderbolt ethernet dongle
- CAT 6 UTP patch cord
- House keys

I do not carry the charger for my Macbook air on a daily basis. The 8 to 9'ish hours of backup I get suffices most working days.

Hey!!! I didn’t realize there were so many fellow EDC voyeurs like me on Team BHP. I have been following EDC forums like Pocket Vomit on IG for years. High time we BHPians came clean on this dark side of ours.

I think we should start another thread on “Setups” or your workplace setup, another voyeuristic pastime of mine. Anyhow back to the EDC thread. I will stretch this a bit.

I categorize my EDC’s as:

EDC: Every Day Carry
WDC: Weekends Day Carry
PDC: Photography Day Carry
HDC: Holiday Day Carry

I know this is excessive but have followed too much Pocket Vomit for too long, so the disease is hard to kick.
The Everyday Carry Thread - What do you carry with you everyday?-dsc00516.jpg

EDC:
1) Dell Laptop (Company issued)
2) Hidesign RFID Wallet (with the number of frauds, all my wallets are RFID protected)
3) ID Swipe Card

5) Two Pens (Miniso Clear Fountain Pen + Pilot G-2)
6) Choice of watches: Tissot PRS 50 Chrono / Hand-wound HMT Pilot
7) Samsonite Laptop bag (Poorly designed but sturdy)
8) Notebook
9) Sunglasses (always RayBan)
10) Reading Glasses (quite helpless without one)
11) Copper Cuff on my wrist (supposed to be good for my Hypertension)
12) Gold Wedding Band

WDC:
1) Repeat of items 1,2,8,9,10,11 from EDC
2) Waist Pouch

PDC:
1) Sony A6000
2) Sony 16-50 mm Kit lens
3) Cosina 35-70 mm lens (salvaged from my Dad’s old camera)
4) Pentax SMC 70-210 mm lens (bought on ebay)
5) Manfrotto Mini Tripod
6) Rename Cross Body Bag (a Japanese brand I got through Rakuten)
7) Decathlon Sun Hat
8) Repeat of items 1,2,8,9,10,11 from EDC

HDC:
1) All items in PDC
2) Secret Wallet for Passport, Cash & Cards (worn inside)
3) Bose Headphones
4) Kindle Reader
5) Water Bottle (usually Decathlon)

Default Re: The Everyday Carry Thread - What do you carry with you everyday?

Some of the posts here have a really long impressive list of goodies. If there is a record for the least number of things carried by a person who commutes to a 9 to 5 job - I may be a contender for that I carry
1. Badge/ID to get into work
2. Samsung GS9 phone. I use digital pay, and Tesla phone key
3. Wallet with one credit card, health insurance card, driving license and little cash

No backpack/lunchbag. I do not carry a laptop and other electronics with me as my workplace is 5 minutes away from home. No car keys, no home keys. My car opens my home garage door. I have never worn jewelry or watches(in decades), never carried pens. I check the time on my phone. On days that I play tennis/plan to walk/hike, I wear a fitness band. Otherwise, it is just shorts, t-shirt (with no holes), flip flops and a phone for most of the year. A jacket and slip ons for winter months. I have pictures of all documents on the phone, and I have never had to show them or use them.

There are many days when I ride a bicycle to work - that I carry just my phone and badge to work. Phone with a 2 card holding case.
