EDC bags & load outs, How do you carry your crap around

This is my daily EDC load out. I have 2 primary bags, I have a Ka-bar fanny pack and a Maxpedition Fat Boy Versapack. The Ka-Bar fanny pack is my primary bag and the Versapack is my secondary but both of them are with me all the time. The only difference is the Ka-Bar is always on my body where as the Versapack is in my vehicle or office.

Lets load out the Ka-Bar 1st







This is the load out for the Versapack







I do on occasion have to dress up for a meeting or some event when a fanny pack is not appropriate.

Do you carry all that for work? Or are you one of those "survivalists"?

I could go on a weekend camping trip - in the summer - and take less than that.

Well this is what I carry every day, the Maxpedition bag weighs in at 7.4 lbs and the fanny pack weighs in at 3.8 lbs with a loaded 45. By the way that's a 1911 not some Plastic firearm. When I go to work I also have my iPad and all the gear that goes with that.

MP3 player, flashlight, snacks, bus schedule, water or soda bottle, the odd layer... I'm going to be a great snack for the zombies.

I carry a soft-sided leather briefcase, almost a messenger bag, to work. When traveling sometimes I carry around my camera bag that is messenger-style.

But mostly I have pockets and I carry small stuff. My normal EDC is a big folder, small multitool (Leatherman Juice), a couple of ink pens, a small light (Fenix LD01), wallet, iphone4 and car keys.
In my bag I have a larger light, small ipod and small bottle of aspirin.
I don't know what else I would want to carry even if I had the room.

I drop my smartphone into my thigh carpenter jeans pocket, wallet in the back pocket, keys on a 'biner hook to my belt loop (if not just left in my vehicle), a tape clipped to my side pocket and a pencil behind my ear...good to go.

I don't consider this as as bug out gear, it's just what I carry with me everyday when I leave the house.

i guess you missed the sarcasm! I don't actually consider it a lot of stuff, simply the things I use rather regularly in my life. I do not now or ever have carried anything in my pockets. I suppose it does look like a lot of stuff when you spread it all out and open everything to be viewed. I use to use my Topeak MTX bag but this is much more convenient since this bag fits inside that one perfectly.

I mean look at what is in the inventory, I smoke a pipe so I have a couple of lighters and a pipe tool, a grooming kit, my wallet, insect repellent, some paracord, my spectacles, magnifying glass, eye glass wipes, iPhone, a couple of bandaids, hand warmers ( it is November ) some multi tools and a couple of utility knives. A torch. These are just things that work well with my lifestyle on a daily basis. The whole thing weighs less than 7.5 lbs.

I carry my 45 everywhere I go. I never walk out the door without it. I carry it at work, ridding my bicycle, at work, or walking around my farm.

I carry the items I have decided makes my life more convenient considering my lifestyle & occupation. Your needs may be considerably different their for would dictate a different EDC.

I doubt that vehicle would survive a zombie apocolypse. You'll get zombie guts all plugged up in the front grill. At least install a deer bumper. BE PREPARED!!!
