    The term "Every Day Carry" (EDC) is typically used to describe guns and/or knives. 

    In this case; I am not talking about self defense weapons. (FYI: I do not count multi-tools or SAKs as weapons; because they include various tools.)

    There are many other types of items that people choose to carry on their person every day; to help get them through their day-to-day tasks.

    What is the one item, or "tool", that you HAVE to carry on you every day?

      Fudging a bit, because they're in my car, not on my person, but I always keep a change of clothes handy.

      I normally dress in jeans and a nice shirt for college and work, but often I find a friend who wants to hang out and exercise. Thus, it's always good to have some sportys duds handy, and it also helps if a bad stain or tear ever arises. Plus, they're nice if we just want to be lazy in comfortable clothes together.

    Well, I guess you still carry it with you every day; so it still counts.

      Out of curiosity; is this because you NEED it for work, or because you NEED it for entertainment?

      Sometimes I feel lost without  my cell phone; because I NEED the distraction sometimes.

      I  keep meaning to add a pen to my EDC.

      My SwissChamp (big Swiss Army Knife) had a pen cartridge on the handles; so I at least had that.

      My current SAK does not have one, so I have been thinking about getting this telescopic key chain pen. It extends to a full sized.

    A field note, mechanical pencil, two key-chain tools and a cellphone with accessories.

      What kind of key chain tools do you have?

      The hardware store, by my house, has a display full of cool key chain tools and accessories.

      I have to avert my eyes when I walk in.

    I always have a watch and a wallet.  Usually a phone and car keys (no mass transit near me).

      There are many different kinds of tools you can keep in your wallet.

      I did an article on my PocketMonkey.

      It is sort of like those "survival cards" you see on F all the time; but there is no blade, It is more office friendly.

      Who could be intimidated by a little mernkey???

      What kind of pen?

      What I mean is; is it a specialty pen, like a Space Pen? or just like a plain BIC pen?

    It's a pen with a stylus on the end for tablets or phones.
