Air Force Mechanic’s Harmonica Off-Duty Carry: Everyday Carry Pocket Dump of the Day

Phil from OKC sends us his “Off Duty Pocket Dump” ensemble, via the fine folks at Everyday Carry.

So what does this 26-year-old U.S. Air Force Aircraft Mechanic carry in his pockets?  A lot of stuff, including a harmonica!

The OrbitKey keeps keys organized and supposedly from scratching other stuff in your pockets.  Add in a Zippo lighter, Zebra Pen and Helotex G2 tactical flashlight and he’s filling up those pockets with normal stuff.

Easily the most unusual item:  A Hohner Blues Band Harmonica (Key of G).  I bet you didn’t know you can easily spend $50 on a harmonica!  I’ll let you follow the link to see how.

He carries the awesome SIG P365 is a Tulster Sig P365 Holster IWB Profile Holster.  Yes, Amazon won’t sell those icky guns but they’ll be happy to sell you a Tulster holster.  $64.97 plus tax and shipping.

I have to say that Casio F91W-1 watch is the least pretentious watch I’ve ever seen here.

Oh, don’t miss the Kershaw Cryo II folder.

    Looks like an Uncle Henry folder in that picture.

        Angled bolsters.

    And a great Old Timer.

    That Casio F91W-1 has been in continuous production for nearly 30 years.

    It is also popular with terrorists for use as a bomb timer…

    Pretty cool. Neat to see. And a pedestrian watch.

    I have never had good luck toting a mouth harp without a hard case.

    Always end up bending the side plates. I keep two in my truck.

      A harmonica would probably fit in a belt mag pouch…

      1. avatar Specialist38 says:

        Your right. That basically what folks who play on stage carry use.

        The folks who play lots of different keys of music wear a bandolier.

        Tacticool harmonica rifts……

          The harmonica – The instrument that both sucks and blows as needed… 😉

      2. avatar Craig in IA says:

        Don’t be fooled- that harmonica is a weapon. I know- I’ve been an AFM member and professional musician for 45+ years. The only thing more dangerous than a harmonica is a banjo. Then, of course there are “the pipes”, but they don’t count as a musical instrument.

        Know the difference between a professional harmonica player and a box of Hamburger Helper?

        The Hamburger Helper can actually feed a family of 4…

          The only instrument that needs to be registered is an accordion and there is 90 day cooling off period.

        2. avatar Specialist38 says:

          And that pretty damned funny.

          Of course I’m not a professional. I only play for beer.

    A tactical folder and a pocket knife my grandpa would have carried. Gotta love that. Only real experience I have with Sig is vintage P220. Still, the only DA/SA I can honestly say I ever liked.

  6. avatar enuf says:

    Good stuff. Tho not all of it goes in pockets, and for that matter the belt offers places to hold stuff and maximize pocket space.

    I’d say he’s a magazine short. I’d add a belt holster for the larger knife, and of course the missing spare magazine.

    1. avatar Ed Schrade says:

      If you use a belt holster for the knife then the open carry critics will start in .

    “Did you bring a horse for me?”

    1. avatar DaveP says:

      “Looks like we’re shy one horse.”

      1. avatar Sean G./The Rookie says:

        *slowly shakes head*

        “You brought two too many.”

    John Popper’s alter ego?

  9. avatar Phil L. says:

    Nice carry! Personally, I carry the Hohner Special 20; a good compromise between the cheap imports and pricey high-quality instruments. That said, I’ve given away quite a few Hohner Blues Band harps; they’re an affordable way for an aspiring player to get started.

  10. avatar Docduracoat says:

    Is this our first Sig 365?
    That is a real innovation, a pocket pistol that holds 12 rounds.
    I expect we will be seeing a lot more of these

    That’s a lot of FOD…
