If I carried this gear I'd have a horizontal knife sheath on my belt unless I had to go shirt-tucked-in, in which case I'd probably carry a slim line folder. Pen goes in the button down shirt buttons near my neck. I don't carry a gun outside my ride and my phone just chills in my pocket. That's a boatload of keys, though..

Sadly I carry a backpack into/out of work because I tote my cameras around, so it ends up being a dumping ground for excess.

Get a pocket knife and maybe switch to stylus style light. Takes up as much room as the pen.

I hate stuff in my pockets so try to keep it simple

Well, number one, I don't carry a flashlight except in my truck. Don't carry a pen. Glasses are on my noggin. Keys are in right front pocket, money clip in left front, wallet in left rear, extra mag on left hip, pistol on right hip. Folder is clipped in right front pocket. That leaves the right rear free !

I carry 3 keys, a phone, and a wallet. If I carried all that I would need a purse or a backpack. Sometimes I carry a very small folding pocket knife, but not all the time

I feel like this is pretty minimal. Just missing my phone but not bulky to me.

Wallet in back pocket, pistol appendix carry, pocket knife on right pocket, phone left pocket, keys right pocket.

That’s a lot of crap to carry. My desanti holster has an extra mag spot and it takes up minimal space

I’ve been pretty happy with it, and have managed to keep in a lot longer than I do most other wallets.

I would suggest keeping the bullets in the clips and gun...that should cut down on the stuff in your pockets.







Sits back and waits for everyone to loose It over “clips”

I have a buddy that carries one of his knives like this. I tried and it bounces to much when running for me.

Maybe one of the leather guys here could build a belt pouch to keep the spare mag flashlight and knife, maybe even the gun. That could be cool.

Is that a CRKT Hammond Desert Cruiser? That is an old knife unless they started reproducing them.

I would look at getting a smaller light for starters. Either the Pro Tac 1AAA or Pro Tac 2AAA.

DM Bullard cowboy wallet front left. Keys, phone and case medium stockman front right. If I am hunting at night I clip a Pro Tac 2AA in my front left pocket and it is out of the way. If I am hunting and packing the XDS 9mm is 4 o'clock extra mag at 6 o'clock OWB. And when I finally get around to getting my CHL that is how I would carry it during the day as well. It hides pretty well with a long shirt.

Here is what I carry everyday;

Right front pocket is reserved for my Keltec PF9

Left front pocket has my Gerber, a pen, and a small but bright flashlight

Right cargo pocket is my wallet, rescue inhaler, and altoids

Left cargo pocket is my car keys, truck keys, and church keys

Between the left front pocket and the left cargo pocket is a pocket that is the perfect size for 2 spare magazines.

Back right pocket is a clean handkerchief



Besides the handkerchief I do not carry anything in my back pockets. I drive for a living and it is just too uncomfortable sitting on my wallet all day long. Most of my pants are 5.11 brand.
