Every day carry

by Volker Weber


Apple Watch, Apple iPhone 6s Plus, carbine hook, Leatherman Juice, Victorinox pocket knife with money clip, keychain with Utili-Key, 32 GB thumb drive & YubiKey

That is my current EDC. Keychain and Victorinox live in my pocket, carbine hook and Leatherman in my bag, Apple Watch on my wrist and the iPhone in my hand. I use the carbine to quickly fix the dog somewhere and the Leatherman for serious repairs. Both can stay behind. The rest is obvious and always on me.

My EDC changes over time. Two years ago I was carrying a Lumia 1020 and a BlackBerry. Now I am down to one smartphone with no backup. I also had a power bank and an access point with me, but I hardly ever need these anymore.

Today I am no longer attached to a single computer. Sometimes I carry a Retina Macbook Pro, sometimes Surface 3, other times the Yoga 3 Pro. Sometimes I just bring a keyboard.


Volker, regarding the computers you are carrying - in the background it is Microsoft Cloud and services, I suppose? For me, that is working exceptionally well.
How do you manage being without plastic money? Don't use it?

I need credit cards. But I hardly ever have to carry them.
