    So, what does everyone every day carry in their pockets?

    I'll go out to the car here in a bit and take a picture.

    iPhone 4 (two, one work, one personal)
    Bifold leather Wallet (debit card, CCs, cash, IDs, various contact sheets, moist towelette, etc.)
    Car Key
    Surefire L4
    Gerber F.A.S.T.
    Ray Ban 'Tech' Aviator Polarized sunglasses
    Unit Coin

    I'll leave it up to the mods, but don't post about any firearms you may or may not carry every day.

    R front = keys and any number of clip knives
    L front = original moto droid
    R cargo = pen, chap stick, lighter, big life savers in noisy individual wrappers and inhaler i haven't used in prob a year but better safe than sorry
    L cargo = tri-fold wallet, with CC, id, business cards, and generally more receipts than money
    rear pockets = random folder papers or receipts
    I also carry a back pack almost everywhere i go with lunch bag, bills/documents, extra pair of wool socks and short socks, contact case, glasses case, comb, axe spray, big key ring, plastic bags, check book, gerber, and any other assorted emergency items... anything i don't have i can make or acquire

    if i'm wearing work/shop pants the only addition is gloves in R rear pocket, earplugs in R cargo pocket

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that carries a damn back pack everywhere. Pockets are worthless. I keep my lighter and my smokes in my pocket if I have anything at all in them. The keys(6 cars, two houses, garage, work)/phone/wallet/hard shell arnette sunglasses case/tablet/various purpose charging cables/various paperwork/etc/etc/etc/etc are all kept in the bag.

    Front Left - wallet
    Front Right - phone, at least 3 pens and a permanent marker, house/office keys with a bottle opener, and the key/lanyard to either the Si or HHR.
    Little Front Right - a small lighter and my 1" knife (from a customer)
    Right leg - cigarettes

    I hate carrying anything in my back pockets, I usually stuff the receipts from the day in there then empty them out when i get home.

    Front right: unit coin, knife, badge
    Front Left: car key, iPhone
    Rear right: Wallet
    Rear left: flashlight
    Head: Hat

    I ALWAYS empty my RR and FL pockets when I sit down at my desk. I rarely ever empty the FR and RL when I sit. When I'm in the car, it's the same, I never empty FR and RL except when I'm at home for the night.

    EDIT: Also, nobody else posting pictures?
