As you probably saw by our announcement today, we've chosen the winners from the latest contest. But if you didn't win this time, don't worry because now is your chance. We want to see what you carry! Well, mainly the stuff that's in your pockets although belt and wrists count.

Remember, It has to be functional and realistic. This means it actually has to be what you carry in your pockets, not in a bag. Of course this is totally left open to our interpretation and that's why we'd like a brief description or bulleted list of what you're carrying too.

To enter, simply post up your photo here with a brief description of your EDC. We'll look in on the submissions and pick someone every month to win. The winner's photo will be posted on the homepage of ITS Tactical along with the announcement.

Fine Print:
  • Past photos are not eligible this time. Take a new photo and make it look good. Get creative!
  • Your profile must include a photo. Whether it's actually you or in the case of OPSEC, something other than the default "no photo" image.
Disclaimer: By posting your EDC Photo here in this post, you agree to allow us to display it in a post on the itstactical.com homepage if you win.

Since staff members are not eligible for the contest, I'll kick things off with what's in my pockets:

Edit:

If anyone is having trouble adding a photo, I've updated the How To. Let me know if you have any questions but it should be a pretty painless process.

"This means it actually has to be what you carry in your pockets."

I guess nobody else is wearing regular good old 5-pocket jeans. Cause all I got are three pennies and a ball of lint.

In my bag, on my wrist, etc. well that's a different story.

On your person will count. Pockets, wrists, belt... Also doesn't have to be a pocket dump at your time of reading. Build your optimum "pocket carry" and set up a nice photo. Everyones EDC probably changes a little from day to day. Mine certainly does but the staples are there.

I saw this contest on twitter today and pulled everything out of my pocket right away!
in no particular order:

RayBan Large Aviators
Loose Change
Aluminum Stylus
Rite in the Rain pocket notebook
Graphix all graphite pencil
Gen1 Gerber multiplier 600
Novatac 120M
Leather Wallet
Keys to Honda, home, and the office





if anyone knows of a rite in the rain pen that also serves as a capacitive touch screen stylus, I would be all over that

Think my pockets are smaller than you guys. Lucky to fit a gerber in there. gotta hang my multi-tool with my car key, and they won't fit in a pocket either. That's it. Gotta buy bigger pants!

Here's my EDC.
  • Wallet with cards, pictures, cash, etc. I use business cards for notes. The bandages often help. I was on an overnight transatlantic flight when an attendant couldn't get someone's reading light turned off nor get any improvised shield to stay. I thought for a moment then used bandages to tape on a shield.
  • water resistant Timex watch. It only cost a few bucks, but I've had it forever - shown is the third band. It keeps time within 20 seconds per month; I calibrate it against NIST's atomic clock.
  • Wilsons Leather coin purse and key chain. It keeps keys and coins from cutting holes in my pocket. Attach keys with a small ring so the keys lay flat. Luggage stores often have a Wilsons Leather display with good version. In the coin purse I carry
  • oil for blessings
  • Verbatim 4Gbyte TUFF-'N'-TINY USB drive
  • Photon Freedom micro LED light. I leave the swivel clip mount at work.
  • Leatherman Kick in a nylon holster.
  • wedding ring - 36 years so far
  • Parker ballpoint pen - I used this model for decades since it is just the right size and color.
  • handkerchief

Don't worry about not carrying a ton of stuff, it's not a contest on quantity! If you carry your keychain on a belt loop or something, that's cool too.
