My Personal EDC – What I Carry On My Body
This is what I carry on me at all times in case I’m separated from my EDC bag. It’s main purpose is to give me enough time to get either to my EDC bag or get home.
Top Left is a personal first aid pouch. It contains a pair of scissors, some gauze pads, band aids, tape and some antiseptic.
Below that in blue, is an emergency rain poncho. I live in Scotland where the weather can change in a minute.
Below that is a multi-tool. Standard one with pliers, knife, flat and phillips screwdriver, hole punch, saw, bottle opener and measuring tool.
Next to the green pouch is my key ring with carabiner, paracord, P39 (can opener), flashlight and nail clippers.
To the right of my key ring is a flashlight. I got this off Amazon for under $3 from Hong Kong. I expected something cheap and for it to fall apart quickly, but it’s surprisingly robust and well made. It has 3 flashlight modes including strobe and a focus beam.
Below the flashlight is my medical pouch. I carry paracetamol, ibuprofen, Imodium, dioralyte, diclafinic (i get gout some times) and some extra band aids.
Below that is my lighter.
Lastly is my pocket knife. I live in Scotland and the knife laws are very restrictive. The blade has to be under 4 inches, non lockable and the real kicker, you must have a valid reason to carry it. As an IT tech, Amateur radio operator, hunter and fisherman, I can only hope that will do. Because of these restrictions, I choose the Lansky LKN333 Mikkel Willumsen World Legal Folding Knife and I love it. This is a serious knife. Since you aren’t allowed to have a locking blade, Lansky have made the world’s hardest knife to close! Seriously, this thing is hard to close. The downside is, you can’t open it one-handed. But it’s a good trade-off given the laws here.
I carry all this in my cargo pants. I gave up jeans when I started prepping.
