Now I haven’t really done anything like this before, but I guess now is a good time to start listing off the stuff in my everyday carry.

If you know me, you’re probably aware that I tend to carry a huge backpack filled to the brim and I look like that fat kid from Up. That set up has not been kind to my back, and now I just want to make sure I have only the essentials with me when I leave the house.

So here’s my everyday carry:

  • Pebble SteelI love this watch. This keeps me from pulling out my phone when I don’t have to as I can screen the messages right on my wrist. Also it’s my primary pedometer, so I can keep on lying to myself about my level of physical activity.
  • Audio Technica ATH-IM50 – Because I need to shut the world out when I’m commuting. Also, these in-ears are fantastic. Check out my review!
  • Sony Xperia Z3 – This baby’s got fantastic battery life and fantastic performance. However, I’m kinda disappointed with the camera – it needs to be more consistent as it tends to jump between great and terrible.
  • Powerbank – Because I don’t want to get stranded someplace without a way to call people?
  • Nomadkey – Basically an extra-short USB cable that I can attach to my keychain. I just got this and I love how I can now just leave my long cables at home.
  • Lip Balm – This one is for men. Shut up.
  • Mints, Notebook, Pen – Not included in the picture because I’m an idiot who forgot to take them out of my stupid bag.
  • Wallet
  • ASUS Transformer T100 – This is only when I absolutely have to bring a laptop with me. What I like about this is that I can switch between tablet and laptop modes effortlessly, so I don’t have to have a separate tablet.

I’m planning to add a small multitool to my EDC eventually as you’ll never know when you need a small knife or screwdriver handy.
