    Still commenting.

    That’s a lot of crap to lug around.

    And yes, my god, the field notes

    1. avatar Hannibal says:

      But these notes are CONFIDENTIAL- it says so right on the cover!

      I’m engorged with jealousy of the level of operator.

  2. avatar Mark says:

    I think his mommy gave him all that stuff. Thumbs up if you know the reference…

  3. avatar strych9 says:

    An interesting paring of knives.

    God that’s a bad joke.

    1. avatar jwm says:

      On a scale of 1 to Ralph that’s…….well, less than 2.

  4. avatar me says:

    Compensate much? DAMN!!!

  5. avatar Robb says:

    I’m curious why 2 different brand semi-autos, let alone both subcompacts. Seems if you’re going to lug around 2 semi-autos maybe stick to ones that can take the same/similar magazines.

    1. avatar Red in CO says:

      Or carry a compact (not sub compact) primary with a subcompact BUG

  6. avatar Michael says:

    That’s a lot of stuff….

  7. avatar Swarf says:

    Very funny.

    … this is a joke, right?

    1. avatar strych9 says:

      Considering that his name is Tackleberry and his comment is “All day, every day. Gun-free zone or not. Always prepared.” it may not be serious.

  8. avatar Sixpack70 says:

    Needs a toenail clipper. Never know when you will need to clip your toenails while writing some field notes.

  9. avatar Frank in Apex says:

    It really is getting to the point where we need to start seeing pictures of the people actually lugging all this stuff around as an attempt to call BS. This person is either 6’5″ 300 lbs, 14 years old or carries a man-purse. Puhleeze!

    1. avatar strych9 says:

      Honestly I think we go a bit far ragging on people for what they carry in terms of how much they carry.

      Keep in mind that TTAG calls this a “Pocket Dump” but the actual EDC website doesn’t specify that and many people, myself included carry a bag.

      This is my Pocket Dump, which as a TTAG reader I limited to what I carry on my person at nearly all the time because I know the “excess” gear drives people nuts.


      However, my actual EDC includes a backpack full of books and a laptop plus other stuff.


      Is that a bunch of stuff? Sure, but read what I wrote about how much I carry in books and other school supplies and the weight of the added items and I think you’ll agree that while it’s a lot of stuff it’s minimal compared to my school supplies. Consider however that I’m telling you it’s a backpack and showing you the bag. If I didn’t do that I’d look like I was crazy, lying or trolling.

  10. avatar J In SC says:

    Uhhhm, excuse me, but is that just a phone case without an actual telephonic device in it?

    1. avatar Lucky ditty do says:

      Yes, I’d bet that he pulled the phone from the case to take the picture.

  11. avatar LHW says:

    What, no DEAGLE? Amateur.

  12. avatar Concerned_Carry says:

    I’ve noticed a surprising number of Field Notes notepads in the Pocket Dump of the Day recently. These are made and sold by a well-known designer named Aaron Draplin. What you all need to know is that Draplin is extremely anti-Second Amendment. I’m a designer in NC and attended one of his presentations last year. When he wasn’t talking design was praising Obama and making cheap shots at the NRA and gun owners. I just think you guys need to know who you’re supporting. His notepads are nothing special and the the ones I’ve seen aren’t even well made. Please take your business elsewhere. He thinks all of you are slack-jawed rednecks.

    1. avatar Taylor TX says:

      Thats interesting to know. I got my field notes from ITS a few years back to stick in my hunting pack, guess Ill have to get a rite in the rain notebook now! Cant support the commies.

    2. avatar James69 says:

      +1 Thanks for the info, I’ll pass it along.

    3. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

      So, Field Notes are actually lamer than I had originally thought.

      Good to know.

    4. avatar Sian says:


      Dollar store pocket notepads for me!

      1. avatar Concerned_Carry says:

        Yep, that’s him. Looks like a guy you’d run into at the shooting range. You’d be more likely to find him at a Clinton rally.

  13. avatar ActionPhysicalMan says:

    Has there ever been a condom in any of these? You’d think there’d be at least one safety conscious horn dog out there.

    1. avatar 16V says:

      Pocket dump, not a briefcase dump, or a glovebox dump.

      Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure at least some percentage of these (generally) gents are Brad Pitt, and might get some random just wandering around during the day/night. But I’ve heard that even if you have an extremely fortuitous seat match on a 5 hour red-eye, you still can get to the carry-on before you head to the back of the plane.

      (Unless you bartend in Orange County near a porn studio. Then you should have a pocketful at all times.)

  14. avatar kenneth says:

    Something’s not quite right. Everybody knows that the real, yet fictional, Tackleberry favors an 8 3/8 inch Model 29…

  15. avatar Bryan says:

    I must say, good to see the Opinel getting some love. Looks like a #8, stainless.

    1. avatar morokko says:

      Yeah, and he even has multitool with pliers in case he would actually need to open this french marvel without loosing his fingernails.

  16. avatar Specialist38 says:

    Careful Zimmerman.

    We read so we CAN comment. Otherwise the site is useless.

    Nothing like poking some good natured fun at some one baring their “pocket sole”.

    I kept looking for the tournequet though….

  17. avatar Ben says:

    Only 1 watch?

  18. avatar PRK543 says:

    Someone got the IV8888 August EDC man can… actually the man-up can (based on the key bar.) Sadly, the poster did not include their “Pocket Dump” morale patch… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ET2lmCFCUug

  19. avatar OH-Shawn says:

    Does seem like a lot of stuff, but, I have no clue as to what he does for a living. Of course, I consider my load light, but I know a lot of people would exclaim that I carry too much. I carry a pen, pocket notebook and knife everywhere I go b/c my job requires detailed notes and opening a lot of boxes. I use my phone as my flashlight (not the best, but it works) and I have my keys, that have a simple screwdriver/bottle opener (the doohickey) from nite ize. I get questions from time to time from folks who laugh at all the stuff I pull out of my pockets, I just figure thats what pockets are for. My P938 is always there, but I don’t pull it out, so nobody has asked me about that one yet.

  20. avatar Anonymous says:

    These field notes are “confidential!”

    Confidential field notes!

  21. avatar LJPII says:

    So…he carries a Leatherman multi-tool, a Griffin multi-tool (which is redundant because the Leatherman has a bottle opener and screw driver built in, and the KeyBar already carries his keys), dagger, and folding knife (which is redundant because his Leatherman already has a folding knife build in, and he’s already carrying a dagger)? Overall, it must be a DANGEROUS job to be a “Network Engineer”. And yeah, “field notes”…some tactiCOOL bullsh*t.
