The thread on bags and the one on notebooks has prompted me to ask about what is your every day caryy stuff that is always on your person or with you?
Regular sturdy belt (can be used as a neck strap to catch and hold an escaped horse or to bind a wound)
cloth handkerchief (in addition to normal use I’ve used it to bind an injury, mop up blood, clean the mouth of a lamb during birth, wash my face and more)
bee sting kit (I’m allergic so I carry epinephrine everywhere)
leatherman tool (Currently carrying a Fuse, going to buy a Rebar when I get to the store next)
wallet containing drivers license, hunting license, credit card, insurance card, store loyalty card for grocery store, business cards, cash
small notebook (usually a 3x5 top spiral bound one)
small pen (alternates between a space pen and a smaller one that fits into a slot in the wallet)
long sleeve shirt (esp. in summer to prevent sunburn)
I add a few other things as the season and workload demand but these are my EDC items.
Mine is much more basic: iPhone SE, Apple Watch, AirPods, sunglasses, keys and wallet. I don’t like to carry a bag, so I keep things to a minimum. The only thing in my wallet is a bus pass because I use my watch for payment everywhere now (I also don’t carry any cash nowadays)
To clarify, this is not stuff in a bag that is with my but actually physically on my person, in a pocket or on my belt. Straps are dangerous around machinery so I don’t carry a bag pr purse around the farm except the lamb bag during lambing.
One suggestion, at least find a way to carry ID and emergency contact information even when on a bike. I know someone who was in an accident and it took a long time to figure out who he was when he was badly injured and in the hospital.
I know this is an old thread but I’m going to post.

Small leather wallet I keep in my front pocket (hate wallets in my back pocket)
Keys on a carabiner, also on the keys are a bottle opener (which I thought was stupid and I would never use but I use it a lot). Also on the keys is a Leatherman small screwdriver, bottle opener wrench, I use it a lot. It’s not Leatherman plies, it’s a Leatherman keychain . I recommend it to
