Urban Every Day Carry

Urban Every Day Carry | The Captain's Log | www.captainairyca.com

Just a quick post on what I’ve been carrying every day for the past few months! I know that a lot of ladies purses are a mysterious void, but I like to pull things out and evaluate what I’m carrying. Almost all of the items I carry I use frequently, with the exception of the epi-pen and pepper spray. (Thank goodness!) It’s weird for me to only carry one blade, but at school, I really don’t find myself needing a fixed blade, (plus the sheeple ratio at the University is pretty high) and my purse already weighs a lot. In fact, it weighs 5lbs, minus the water bottle.

Anywho, when I pulled everything out, I realized I’m lacking in any sort of cordage (dental floss doesn’t really count for what I’m thinking) – so I’m going to have to add that to the pile of stuff in some way.

Here’s a list of what I do have in there because lists are cool:

  • Nalgene water bottle
  • Bluetooth keyboard
  • sunglasses
  • wallet
  • keys
    • pepper spray
    • flashlight
  • camera
  • lighter
  • firestarter tablet
  • button compass
  • Leatherman Wave and bits
  • Rite in Rain pad
  • pen
  • headphones
  • epi-pen
  • hairbrush
  • chapstick
  • nail clippers & other tools
  • inhaler
  • dental floss
  • tea & stevia
  • hand sanitizer
  • tin with Benadryl & ibuprofen
  • bandaids
  • flash drive
  • card reader
  • gum

It’s been a while since I’ve done this – I’m open to suggestions/changes!

    Hi Airyca,

    I like how all the items in your purse are useful and carefully chosen. Makes me want to reevaluate what I’m carrying around everyday.
