    Just switched to sweats for the night. Not including the phone (used to take picture) this is what was in my jean's pockets just before they went in the wash

    - slim wallet
    - Bic
    - LM P4 Squirt
    - Spyderco Manix 2
    - BM Hidden Canyon (was actually on my belt, but had to come off before jeans went into the wash)
    - Ruger LCP
    - Roughly $250 in cash

    Not sure how some of you guys carry so much in your pockets.

    Can't post pictures due to various circumstances so a simple list will have to do...

    LFP: Money clip (engraved with "The Root of All Evil") with 2 credit cards, drivers and gun license.
    RFP: Leatherman Micra, some loose change and a few Ricola lozenges.
    LRP: Bandana
    RRP: Buck 110 with aluminum scales from Copper and Clad[1]
    Right Side Pocket: iPhone 6 in an Otterbox case [2]

    [1] - I run a seam up the back of all my right rear pockets on all my pants to all for vertical carry of a large folder there.
    [2] - 99% of the time, I either wear Wrangler carpenters jeans or Dickies cargo pants, both of which have a cell phone pocket on the right thigh. I consider this a must have in pants as I can't stand phones on my belts or front or rear pockets.

    Some interesting carry there guys! I like it :)

    Had a question about the 'bag' that I carry to work, so I dumped that out, but consider that this is my go to 'stuff' if it is needed so there are a lot of tools and things within, even a candle...cuz you never know!
    I'll not list everything because there is just too much of everything, there is a bogen table top tripod and a phone holder that I use when I need to keep the phone steady while taking photos, very handy! but didn't use on this shot so it could be included.
    I also have gotten to the point where I don't like sitting on my wallet, not that it is full of paper, never full of paper :( but because I just don't like it, so it usually sits in the bag at work or in my jacket pocket when not.

    boy closeup photos sure show the lint and I even tried wiping it down...so it is a little cleaner...the bag has the 5.11 logo on the bottom corner, got this from BladeHQ seen here

    And that about makes it, besides a small bugout bag in the trunk of the car, but I'll leave that for another thread someone else can start.

    Compared to some of you, I keep things pretty modest in terms of pocket use over the last few days. Pocket dump >> Vic Adventurer SAK, Boker Urban Trapper, Keys (2 sets) with a Leatherman Ps4 Squirt attached, coins, pen, and wallet.

    I always have a flashlight handy, but seldom in my pocket unless I'm using it. That is every day.... cell phone of course, but sometimes I forget to carry it on trips to the store. Seems to be becoming less of a priority for me. But I still depend on it to the point that I would replace it the next day if I broke or lost it.

    I really like those knives. I think the potential for self defense with those knives is very high.

    S90V is a pretty good steel, and the ZT 0095 blade shape is very good for cuts and thrusts.

    Yes, fine I own a 0095 and it is nice but why two? Do you plan on fumbling around and dropping one? I kinda sorta get when people carry a small traditional and a larger folder, but two identical knives is...ehhh..what? To me.

    I use to carry two knives all the time, and it's easier to carry duplicates. For carry knives I mostly carry duplicates and have quite a few.

    Have to admit, I like my Bradford Guardians when I carry the 3 and 4.

    Sheet.... I have so many nice knives. I need my head examined for buying any more, but I'm such an addict! :confused:
