Josh is in the Air Force. We assume he packs that SIG P938 when he’s off duty. It’s a great option for pocket carry or toted discreetly inside a waistband, See what else this service man carries at Everyday Carry.

  1. WTF – Field Notes again? BS! I had never seen anyone with them before this. And no phone?

    • What is the charger for? Does he use the flashlight so much he needs to charge it while out and about? Maybe for the fob? Lock, unlock, lock, unlock……?

    • The field notebook is probably where he writes his checklist of Crap to remember to stuff in his pockets.

    • Beat me to it. What is it with the Field Notes? What exactly are they all taking notes on?

      I fell so left out!

      Forget the “meme”, why didn’t I get the memo?

    • Dude, these Field Notes books are all over Everyone has them.

      I don’t get it. Nor do I get all the avant-garde, artsy fartsy ways some people stage their gear for the posts on that site… I just don’t get it.

      • Probably a requirement to get your shit published. If it were a picture of my stuff it would be in a pile on the edge of my desk. And no Field Notes memo book.

        By the way – I notice most of these guys carry two or more knives, even if the second blade is a multi-tool, many carry extra ammunition, some even pack a back-up gun, but I have never seen one where they have a spare pen (or pencil) for their Field Notes.

        • I posted my EDC awhile back just for shits.

          And it was exactly like you stated, just my gear sitting on the table, nothing artsy fartsy about it. I only received about 9 or 10 likes. I guess from the lack of Field Notes and Sundance style creativity.

    • Same here. I have come to expect “field notes” in all these EDC posts. I’ve never met anyone that even has a notepad that says “field notes.”

  2. I went into a gun shop today and noticed a display of those “field notes.” I probably would have never noticed them had it not been for the EDC site. I still don’t want one though. Instead, I carry a 22 cent notebook from walmart in my truck.

  3. If I am being nice, the EDC thing is a little metro. If I am being mean, it’s straight up homo.

  4. Real field staff use “Rite In the Rain”products. Many field investigations require ongoing logging notes being kept by all staff while on site. These are considered legal documents that can be entered into evidence in court. You never know who is going to be called on the witness stand.

    • Beat me to it. Was gonna say Rite in the Rain, and it isn’t just field staff. If you’re just taking notes or doing something out in the field they are so useful.

    • Yup, RitR is industry standard for most everything I’ve seen. Never seen “Field Notes” out in the wild.

      • Judging by the fact the the Field Notes in this picture doesn’t look like it has been repetititvely sat on day in and day out, nor does it have any of the expected wear and tear that comes from removing and replacing something paper based from your pocket repetitively, I am going to wager that this (and most of the notebooks or any of the other crap in these EDC pocket dump photos for that matter) hasn’t been out in the wild much either.

        • Bingo.

          A bit like the folks that buy a 4X4 that has rarely (if *ever*) been off a paved road…

    • Hey guys, thanks for the props. Great to hear.

      Just curious what “Field Staff” you’re referring to specifically. We’ve done well reaching various branches of the military but have struggled to reach police. I’d be interested to know where you typically find RITR gear.

  5. The only way this dude is hauling around all that nonsense is if he’s wearing a fanny pack.
