I often add a Fujifilm X100S camera to this EDC kit and I carry everything in a 5.11 Rush 12 backpack or a Timbuk2 Alchemist Laptop Briefcase.

I’m a designer by trade and founded Rugged Material Travel Goods a few years ago. My personal mission is always to get the most use and value out of things and I made Rugged Material my way to spread the joy. The items here are the “most bang for your buck items” that I have collected over the last year, and I have them with me every single day! Here’s the list going clockwise starting from top left: 1. Samsung Galaxy S4 Active ( on its 2nd screen after a few 100 foot falls, still going strong) 2. Rugged Material Front Pocket Wallet- Natural Horween Chromexcel leather, available on Kickstarter right now 3. Kershaw Leek- lowest priced American Made assisted open knife I’ve found! 4. Rokinon 14mm f2.8 wide angle lens to go with my canon dslr. Best prime lens for the money! 5. Leatherman Caribiner and my silverado keys- I only carry the Leatherman Sidekick when in the mountains. 6. Timex Weekender Watch with Rugged Material Chromexcel Nato strap (coming soon). For $25 this watch is amazing and great for rough activities! 7. Parker Jotter Stainless Steel Pen. I sketch a lot with it so I use a fat 1.0 blue tip that allows for a variety of line weights. 8. Good old fashioned Sharpie. 9. @alphaknifesupply titanium fish tool. 10. Fenix E05 2014 flashlight- I use this more than anything because it’s so, so handy to have 85 lumens in your pocket with just a AAA!

I am a home-based analyst, and most days I walk or ride my motorcycle down to a park or coffee shop to work. I have everything I might need in this bag for work or play and it all weighs in at less than 13 lbs. A few notes on these items: -I ALWAYS have the Architect Wallet (with Space Pen and Moleskine notebook), iPhone with case, and Leatherman on my person. The rest still comes with me everywhere I go, but could be 10-15’ away at any given time. I have Tile locators on my bag, bluetooth speaker, and glasses case (this last one has been a real lifesaver!) -I searched for years for a bag to replace an old satchel I’d sewn back together half a dozen times over the past 10 years and finally settled on this Bluboon Backpack. I love the style, it’s fairly small while still able to carry everything I need, and it cost less than $40! I have had to strengthen a few of the stitches, but it’s worth it! -The Maxpedition Micro Pocket Organizer contains toiletry and first aid hand items. -The 145g Discraft is by far the best small size frisbee I have ever used. It flies as well as a regulation size 175g disc, but saves space in my bag. -The Eno Sub7 is a new release hammock that weighs just 6.9oz, less than half the weight of their Singlenest. It’s perfect for a go bag! -The Matador is another new find. It’s a super compact picnic blanket. Perfect for keeping in my bag and throwing out on some damp grass. -I’ve hacked the car keys and mounted a transponder on the steering column so that I can use a plain metal key without the plastic head. This allows me to fit my keys into the super compact True Utility Key Shackle. -I’ll often throw in my AEO Vintage Denim Western Shirt which works great as a stylish and comfortable extra layer when needed. -Any recommendations on a more compact umbrella?

Filter Your waste .

 I was in need of a blue filter for my Fenix PD20 flashlight for a specific project and couldn’t find any online and as I already had a proper red filter from Fenix thought it wise to try and pimp my own  .

I had a stash of recycled notebooks left over from Christmas presents and the blue plastic binder cover made from old plastic boxes seemed a possible candidate . I carefully removed the red filter from the black filter housing and used it as a template to cut around and it just pops into place , very simple but very effective blue light filter .

I bought a new flashlight, the Fenix TK32. I have an addiction to flashlights, so I am always on the lookout for a new and better light.

Two switches let me select between 10, 130, 400 and 900 lumens or 3 colored LEDs. 40,000 max candlepower and 400 m beam distance make this a pretty powerful light.

The 2” head keeps it from being pocket carry, but it is easily carried on the belt or in a bag. Overall, I am very impressed.

I’ve been carrying Fenix lights for over a year, now, and have been very happy with the features, customer service and price. My personal contact for Fenix products is joni@fenixlighting.com. She is great.

The bag is a Grey Ghost Gear Stealth Operator Pack in Kryptek Typhoon.

I’ve been using a Multi Carry Attachment (MCA) from oscardelta for a couple of weeks. The MCA is .3 oz/8 grams, so the weight is negligible. I wouldn’t use it to attach a knife to web gear, but it is perfect for keeping track of small things.

Mine is attached to the Fenix E12 that I EDC. The light sits comfortably at the bottom of my pocket and the MCA makes it easy to access. I also made a tiny Glow Marker to help find the light if it is dropped. It can also be used as a whipsaw signaling device. The light, marker and MCA are all connected by Technora 450 cord.

For £2.50/$3.91, this is a great piece of kit to keep stuff organized and within reach. Oscar Delta is a great place to conduct business and their quality is top notch and they are able to help with custom items.

This is what I’d call my expanded but still main EDC. I obviously don’t carry all this gear on my person at all times but it is almost always with me and goes with me to work everyday. I will soon post everything I always carry with me on my person. I plan on going through every item and explaining my reasoning behind why I carry it. My main priority and EDC philosophy is functionality before anything else. Starting with the audio gear: I consider myself an audiophile and a music-lover, so at all times I have a fairly good audio setup. Nothing can beat quality speakers in an acoustically-friendly room but this is the second best for me. My main IEMs are my Shure SE846s. I’ve tried the JH16s and 13s and some FItEar models, but nothing I’ve used so far compares to my SE846s. (That is a highly controversial statement, but it’s all about personal preference and for many reasons I prefer the 846s.) The 846s are reshelled by In Ear Central ( a great option to reshell, I might add) and fit perfectly. I use an amazing silver cable with an awesome connector put together by HPL Audio (a.k.a Chrishimselfcables). To drive them (although they are adequately driven by my phone) I use a (surprisingly) good new FiiO model which I just picked up, the E17K. I had a DAC/AMP that was about 4 times more expensive than the FiiO but this FiiO model blows that out of the water. I carry various cables to connect them together, like a USB OTG, and microUSB to USB. I also always carry my custom molded earplugs for whenever I need to work silently or nap. Watch: One thing I’ve learned about watches is that most of them are way overpriced and are not very good. I’ve been gifted a Rolex GMT but never choose to wear it because I don’t like wearing 8 grand on my wrist. I have opted for a beautiful (and inexpensive) Fossil watch which serves its purpose very well. Phone: My Note 4 and iPhone 6 have both crapped out since I’ve got them so I’m using my backup Nexus 5 right now. It will soon be replaced by either an S6 or an M9. Field Notes and Pen: I carry a Field Notes notebook to jot down quick notes and things to remember. Field Notes is building truly iconic brand. So, while there are certainly more functional models out there I kind of suspend my functionality philosophy and go for the brand. My main pen is a fountain pen, but occasionally I need a ballpoint pen (or gel ink), so I use the original Kickstarter pen that kickstarted the slew of pens on Kickstarter. It’s the BIGiDESIGN Solid Titanium Pen. It has a great heavy and cold feeling which I love. And you can never go wrong with Titanium. Notebook: The notebook I use is made by LIFE. I picked it up while in Japan and have not been able to find it elsewhere. The paper is great and the cover is nice. Fountain Pen +Pencil: I have had many fountain pens, some much more expensive than the 144, but I’ve settled on the Miesterstuck for a number of reasons. I am eyeing some Nakaya models though. I use the classic pilot iroshizuku ink, which is my hands down favorite ink…(noodler’s bulletproof is up there too.) The pencil is the classic but new Palomino Blackwing 602. I never really need a pencil so I’ve ditched my Rotring 800. All I need really is an annotation tool for my books and documents and the Blackwing works very well for that. Wallet: The wallet I have is obviously excessively expensive but I choose to carry it just because I used to work for them and I didn’t pay a cent for it. It serves its purpose and is classy, so I’ve kept it. Sunglasses: The sunglasses are Ray-Bans. I love the Wayfarer lineup and its history. And they look really good and are light. Coin: The coin is a slightly rare dollar coin that I carry for luck and whatnot. BuckyBalls: And the Buckyballs, which have unfortunately been discontinued, are the most fun toy that never gets old. Gum/Mints: Altoids are a classic and cinnamon tastes great. Simply Gum is a great company that makes gum without artificial sweeteners and unhealthy ingredients. It isn’t too sweet or flavorful which I prefer. Aesop: I have gotten into the habit of always using hand sanitizer before eating and basically anything else. This one smells great and I don’t always have to go to the bathroom to wash my hands. Books+Magazines: I always carry reading material on me at all times. I usually carry one nonfiction, one fiction and a couple magazines. All my news is on my phone and iPad. Battery: I’m a heavy user of my electronics so this battery has come in handy so many times.It has a lot of capacity so it lasts me quite a long time. iPad: This iPad is getting old but works great. I haven’t chosen to upgrade it because it is perfectly fine, but I’m thinking of getting the new Surface at the end of this year. The new iPad is way too thin with poorer battery life and not much else changed internally. Knife+Flashlight+Multitool: I use a great Benchmade knife from the Orsborne series. The green aluminum handle is a great color and the steel on this knife is great. The AXIS lock opening is a requirement for any future knife I will ever buy because it is so convenient and easy. The flashlight is a very powerful fenix model. It’s a little big but I don’t carry it on my person anyways and I always prefer more power. The mulitool is the classic Wave in black oxide. This is very handy especially with all the extra bits I have.

The flashlight and Victorinox knife both come in handy when working on equipment in one of our worship venues. The Kershaw Cryo is mostly for personal defense from the crazies. Altoids are good for talking to people, but also hide some Ibuprofen for days my music has been too loud or some Famotadine for days that a lunch appointment leads me to a local Mexican restaurant. Apple Watch keeps me connected and the Zojirushi keeps me hydrated. By the way, it also holds ice for well over 24 hours. Oh, and the wallet is made by Couch Guitar Straps, who repurposes vintage vinyl car seat upholstery for straps and wallets.

These are the items I carry on my body all the time. Other than these I usually carry a Maxpedition Octa fanny pack, too, with more additional items, like the Fenix LD25 flashlight.
