What's in my pockets?

On just about every forum I've joined, there is a thread asking what folks carry as their EDC, or everyday carry. Some people carry a ridiculous number of expensive items on them, while other prefer a more simplified setup. I tend to go simple myself, as I don't want to carry or use something I can't afford to replace, or just can't replace period.

Here's what I had in my pockets today:


From left to right we have:

Keys, with car remote and Lego Boba Fett. I had a Victorinox Classic on there, but it was just plain worn out. Time to get another one.

Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm- because it doesn't smell and taste like chemicals.

Victorinox Pioneer-This one was a Christmas gift from Chelsea, and is my most carried pocket knife. I actually tend to use the tools more than the knife, but it doesn't hurt to have an extra edge on me. I have this one on a paracord lanyard that goes around my belt. It makes sure the knife sits vertically in my pocket, rather than sitting horizontally at the bottom. Carrying the knife this way is more comfortable, and it's easier to retrieve as well.

Buck Bucklite- This was a gift from a gentleman on Bladeforums. This particular version is discontinued, though Buck still makes different knives under the Bucklite label. Sturdy, light, and very sharp, it handles most of my day to day cutting tasks.

Coach brown leather wallet- Another gift from the girlfriend, this one carries all the necessary cards, id's, etc. No cash though, unfortunately.

And that's it. I have a bag I keep in the car, and that will usually contain a few other items, along with my cellphone. One of these days I'll post up the contents of my little Bag of Evil as well.

Of course, now I pose the same question to my readers and fellow bloggers alike. What's in your pockets?
