Or everything you possibly would need in the course of a day in an easy to carry pouch!
Lets talk about something that probably has been talked to death on this site. SURVIVAL KITS!
This is different though.
This is one you will use on a day to day.
In the 1800's mountain men carried a "possibles bag" it was a pouch they carried over their shoulder and contained "everything they would possibly need during the course of the day" It was their idea of a pocket.
I often find myself without enough pockets even though I usually wear tactical BDUs, EMT or firefighter pants for the extra pockets. Me, carry a purse? No, I'm pretty sure I'd get my butt kicked for that in my line of work. This pouch carries everything I would usually keep in my pockets in a convenient location and frees up my pockets for anything else I need to jam in there for temporary use.
The overall cost for me was rather low ($20) since I had everything except the pouch and the altoids for the tins. It IS after all what I carry every day.
Step 1: Start With Good Equipment!
I've always found myself needing "just one more thing" when I'm out and about. or I break what I have available to me. It's important to always chose the best gear you can afford, It pays off down the road.
In my "kit" I have more than most people think I do, I'm always surprising people with whats all in this thing!
Lets start with the pouch:
I ordered it online through Menard's, a local midwest hardware store. Its known as a "tool belt pouch" but after looking at a picture for a few minutes, it was easily modded for my use.
FIRST MOD: magnetic closure over multitool. I HATE losing tools, especially when they run me more than 50 bucks. i changed that possibility by placing two hard drive magnets into the pouch. one was in the "pen holders" area directly over the multi tool, the other was a bit more difficult in that i had to slice the webbing of the pouch to slide in a magnet down to the snap. In retrospect, i would have made the slice on the inside so that it would be visible. Melt the webbing so that it does not fray.
SECOND MOD add a few snaps to keep the upper pouch closed, and on the back so that it does not slide off belt. this pouch has a secondary area that is supposed to fit "in your back pocket" however it does not do well around a belt. That is how most people will carry it, so make it secure!
