My Workday Everyday Carry

My Workday Everyday Carry

It's really no secret that I have an interest in Everyday Carry.

While "everyday carry" is not survival preparations, it borders somewhere between life hacking and a life style. I have found great value in having the most essential things I want throughout the day with me when they're needed. 

It's the things like nail clippers, for when my nails start clackety clacking the keyboard if they start getting a bit too long, or a AA battery for my wireless mouse when it's old battery finally starts dying unexpectedly.

Having a few items that can get you through the day, while making your life better and easier really makes a difference in how you feel when you leave work.

Hate Clinking of Keys On A Keychain? Get a Key Ninja

In such situations, if you're not well equipped, things could get very desperate fast, and your lives could very well be on the line (ref: James Kim).

The Jumbo Versipack, A Weekend EDC Bag

The Jumbo Versipack, A Weekend EDC Bag

I got the Jumbo Versipack a few months ago, and have used it on various occasions. It's a very tactical-looking shoulder pouch that carries anything up to a 7-8" tablet size object, plus a lot of extras in all the pockets. I originally got it thinking it would be a full time Everyday Carry bag, but later realized that on weekdays, I usually am carting around my backpack anyway, so I've created two different sets of everyday carry items -- one for work and one for weekends. The Versipack is perfect for when we decide to make a run over to Ann Arbor, Canton or any other day trip where we won't be back until late evening, while I have the work backpack equipped for more immediate needs during the workday.
