Coadbo’s commentary on his everydaycarry.com pocket dump: It doesn’t take a lot of cash…. to have a decent EDC stash!!!! Is that right? I don’t mean the four spears thrown at the end of his sentence. I mean his characterization of his pocket dump as a value-driven proposition. Let’s see . . .
Amazon charges $7.48 plus delivery for his Zebra F-701 Ballpoint Stainless Steel Retractable Pen, Fine Point, 0.7mm, Black Ink, 1-Count. A Smith & Wesson M&P Shield in 9mm msrp’s at $449. The Streamlight TRL-6 laser runs $89. The Gerber multi-tool runs $84.99. The aOakley Men’s Sliver Metals OO9262 Sunglasses retail at $73.80.
I make that $615.27 and counting. (Links to prices here.)
While I would never ask anyone to “cheap out” on tools that can save their life or fix their bicycle, money is a factor for a lot of people. And that’s a big chunk of change.
Too much? How much did you spend on your EDC loadout?
