WHAT’S IN YOUR POCKET? Keeping My Pocket EDC Minimal & Effective

I’ve had a few conversations with people about what and how they carry in their pockets.

Some find it bulky and cumbersome. Others use every cubic inch of space that they’ve got.

The trick when integrating carry gear into an intentional wardrobe is being able to carry effective and appropriate tools without sacrificing fit and aesthetic.

This is one of the reasons I gravitate towards small frame tools like the POM and Modlite. They’re reasonably unobtrusive, regardless of what you’re wearing.

I give a full breakdown of what I routinely EDC in my pockets as a template. What and how do you carry?

The Suited Shootist
Alex Sansone took his first formal pistol class in 2009, and has since accumulated almost 500 total hours of open enrollment training from many of the nation's top instructors including Massad Ayoob, Craig Douglas, Tom Givens, Gabe White, Cecil Burch, Chuck Haggard, Darryl Bolke, and many others. Spending his professional life in the corporate world, Alex quickly realized incongruities between "best practices" in the defensive world, and the practical realities of his professional and social limitations. "I've never carried a gun professionally. I'm just a yuppie suburbanite that happens to live an armed lifestyle. Having worked in the corporate arena for the last decade, I've discovered that a lot of the "requirements" and norms of gun carriers at large aren't necessarily compatible with that professional environment. I also have a pretty diverse social background, having grown up in the Northeast, and there are many people in my life that are either gun-agnostic or uncomfortable with the idea of private gun ownership. This has afforded me not only insights into how we are perceived by different subcultures, but how to manage and interact with people that may not share your point of view without coming across as combative or antisocial. This is why my focus is the overlooked social aspects of the armed lifestyle."
