What's Your Daily Carry?

#1

Not sure if anybody would be into this, but I like seeing what peoples daily carry is. What you bring with you on a daily basis. I'll Start!

I take this bag with me everywhere. It's my man purse. It's a Chrome Mini Buran. If you haven't used, or heard of Chrome bags before, you'll never use anything else. They come at a high price tag, but you get a life time warranty, and a bag built with extreme quality.   

I've done a few mods to mine though, I made this band out of para-cord and melted the back end together. The strap hangs down in the front and can get annoying, this just keeps it all tight and together. Anyone who has a Chrome bag knows what I'm talking about. Also did the same with the rear straps. 

Yes... When I'm on the go I am a Apple user. (Someone show me a laptop with a track pad as good as the MacBook and maybe I'll consider switching.) I have a 120gb SSD for mac, and a 160gb HDD for bootcamp.

I'm a tech, and these are the tools that I carry to job sights. For the most part these get me though the day. Some times I'll carry some screw drivers but I try to keep those at the office. I try to keep my bag as light as possible. Working in the city sometimes you have to park far, and carrying my bag and a PC tower can suck. 

I carry two thumb drives. My favorite of the two is the Kingston Data Traveler. I have 3 of those things. The one in the photo I use everyday. It's 32gb and I used Yumi to create my own ISO-Stick. It has about 20gb of different Boot-Tools and Linux Distros: Plus Win7 install disk.

The power supply tester is always very useful. One of my favorite pieces of tech is the flashlight. It's an LED light, runs off one AA, and is extremely bright and can shine a beam over 100 yards. 

Alright now it's your turn.

As a high school student, most places I go I have to also bring a backpack; one  of the advantages of this is that I may bring a lot more stuff then the average person could with just there pockets soo yeah that's pretty sweet. Also just pretend that there is a nexus 5 in the picture (i was using that to take the picture lol). Also insert said backpack and schoolwork ;P

Phone, pen and camera. No bag. I use my pockets.

Samsung S4 Mini

Phone (smallest i could find) with pen.

Sony RX100 and pen.

Camera (Sony RX100 Mark iii) and pen.

  • No bag
  • Pen is very useful
  • The camera is great. It's a new addition, but i have been using it almost daily. Syncs with phone at a touch (NFC)
  • I like to stay light. When i wear a jacket, i can barely feel any of these items and i don't need to change what I carry if i'm dressed casually or more formally

+1 to the 1911. That is what i first thought when I read daily carry. (Although I have one I  don't carry a 1911. Too big and heavy IMO.) Walther PPQ here

¤ In jeans pockets at all times.

Nexus 5 phone with some networking apps. Dealing mostly with home user networks I hardly ever need to look at a network that cannot be accessed wirelessly. And if it can't that tends to mean something has to be replaced or upgraded anyway.

Mini LED flashlight bright enough to shine both inside murky PC's as well as lighting up the random unlit autumn walkway. One AA battery and metal housing makes it perfectly sized and rugged.

USB 3 key, ADATA S102 Pro 16GB, scratched up metal housing, lost keycap. Not necessarily with a lot of tools loaded onto it, but not having one could really hurt. Surprisingly sturdy and very fast to install from.

Mini metal multi-tool. About a dozen things on it but it's mostly the pliers part that gets used. If I'd be so far out as to have to depend on its screw driver I'd be in a shitty place for sure. Might as well bring a basic driver and leave it on site in those cases, lol. Have considered getting just a quality mini combo-plier.

Yes. At a touch, it turns on the camera's wifi, connects to the phone, transfers the files you've picked (or are viewing) and then turns off the camera's wifi. It's very well implemented.

All you have to do to set it up is to download the free Sony Play-memories application. That's it. If you want to use your phone to control your camera, it is possible as well, but you have to set a few options in the menus.

I think you'll see NFC on most cameras as newer models get released. I know the Canon G7X has it. It's similar to the Sony I have.
