Heres my entry.

Bag was hand made to my specs by a gent in Guatemala. Has a padded section that fits the MBP like a glove.
15" MacBook Pro i5 2.4ghz and 8GB RAM, 120GB Crucial M4
Grid-It 10"x5" (Should have gotten a bigger one)
MicroUSB and Apple cables
T-Mobile HSPA+ hotspot (Max I've pulled is 11mbit down and 2mbit up)
iPod Nano 5G 8GB (used for audiobooks and lectures only)
iPhone 4S 16GB
Klipsch Image One headphones
Kindle Keyboard WiFi + 3G (Was a gift of I'd have gotten just the WiFi version)
16GB USB Flash Drive
CyberPower travel power strip with USB
Case SodBuster pocket knife
Toothbrush in case of stankbreath after lunch
Polarized Oakley Aviators

So what about everyone else? What are you 'Always with you's?

damn man, thats quite a lot for a daily carry. I only carry keys, wallet, phone (samsung galaxy s). would quite like to add a multi-tool to the daily carry, possibly some kind of keychain leatherman. Also one of these would be cool, but not really necessary for my line of work buck vantage in sv30 steel

You really carry all that everyday? Holy crap.


Wallet, keys, 32GB flashdrive, HTC HD7 smartphone.


I can't fathom needing all that apple every day.

Flip magic wallet thing. Just notes and eftpos cards and swipe card for my apartment and swipe card for the bus.
iPhone 4S - 64 GB.
Raybans (on my face)
To work I have to take my badge/security token things. (lift, a few different office buildings etc.)
Senhieser Earbuds to plug into my phone for music.
A book - maybe. Currently reading Chuck Palahniuk - Invisible Monsters.
If I have to take a bag with some work crap in it it's just a j-Fold shoulder bag with a few 5mm iso pads and some pens and engineering stencils.

Clothing optional... :roll:

Keys, 2x cell phones (work (smart) and personal (dumb)), Leatherman Wave, wallet, canteen, sometimes an albuterol inhaler.

I give it another four posts before someone refers us to the Gun Pr0n thread. :wink:

edit: forgot my wristwatch, wedding ring, and glasses.

Yup. I spend about 2 hours a day on a train, so the Kindle/iPod come in handy for that. Reading or listening to a lecture from http://www.thegreatcourses.com/ here are great, and now with iTunes U, I can get even more. Everything else other than the laptop is kind of inconsequential, really. Need the phone, everything else is nearly weightless.

I generally bring an older dell xps 16 inch laptop, ps vita, and a regular flip phone that's 3g compatible (if I ever actually need it). A couple extra usb cables as well, (haven't got an extra ps vita cable yet, need to ebay it for reasonable price). I use a backpack. Yes I look a bit weird, but at least I'm comfortable. :P

A laptop, a spiral notebook, some pens, some pencils, IEMs, a flash drive, water canteen, and phone charger/USB cable in a backpack. My phone, my wallet and keys on me. I try to keep it simple.

Hey guys, you should look at the Gun Pr0n thread!

Ok, on topic. I carry my phone (Droid 1), wallet, and keys absolutely everywhere because when I don't, I always seem to get locked out of my dorm. If you count my backpack for school, it includes a 3 ring binder with like 2 reams of paper and pencil, eraser, and pen.

Corrado you carry army around with you! How often do you actually use all of it?

Laptop (and charger!), umbrella, usually a spiral notebook or 2, iClicker (for 2 of my lectures), Ti-89, phone, cheap headphones, chapstick, watch, knife, wallet, keys, way too many mechanical pencils, 8GB flash drive, 16GB flash drive.

All in a Timbuk2 HAL bag. It's pretty spiffy and usually has room for a lot more.

That's what I carry on weekdays anyways. Weekends might be the same if I'm going out to get work done, but if I'm just going to spend time with friends, it's wallet, phone, keys, knife.
Lenovo W520
IBM dx340
Nokia Lumia 928

That's a well-loaded bag :o I guess if I had to ride mass transit or cycle every day, I'd have a bag of some sort in daily use...

Left pocket has a 32GB flash drive, small knife, a spare pen, and the smartphone. Right pocket has wallet and keys.

I carry the hp TouchPad (with the protective folding stand/cover) in-hand, and store a couple pairs of headphones plus a 500GB USB drive with my complete music collection, at work. Phone USB charges from my computer during the day and the TouchPad doesn't get used enough to wear out a full charge in one day, so I just charge it at home in the evenings.

I think the OP (and entire point) of this thread is a #humblebrag - just want to throw that theory out there.

Anyway, I carry my wallet, keys, a cheap LG java-based phone, and a Kindle Fire running CM7. Sometimes a small armada of guitar picks, depending on the day of the week. Once a couple of minor issues are worked out with the 3.0 kernel, it'll be a Kindle Fire running CM9, but otherwise, my daily haul won't change much. I keep a toothbrush and toothpaste at my desk - no reason to carry that nonsense around. :lol:

I carry an extra pair of underwear. Not for me, but just in case I need to give someone a ride somwhere. I tend to drive a bit fast, and pass on corners. :)

Keys, wallet, iPhone 4. Used to carry a pair of Sennheiser CX-500s before they were stolen off my desk. D:<

Don't carry headphones with me, I have a pair of Sony MDR-XD200s at work and Senn HD556 at home.
