Everyday Carry Pocket Dump, Engineer/Manager


With Patrick and John posting their every day carry, I figured I would get in on the fun and post mine.  Read on to see what I have in my pockets and around my person on a normal day.

EDC MattI do not bring along very much with me on a day to day basis, just the things that I consider essentials.  So for my everyday carry dump, all I have on me are my wallet, my keys, my phone and a watch.  The other thing I carry most everywhere, but is too big to carry in my pocket, is my iPad in a Switcheasy case.

Matt EDC 4I stopped using bifold and trifold wallets a long time ago, and exclusively use a leather card case as a wallet (Coach makes a nice one, but I think my current one is from someone else).  It has two pockets on either side and a larger pocket in the center.  It is small enough to fit in a front pocket and it isn’t so thick that it causes back pain in a rear pocket.  My keys are a requirement, with keys for 2 cars, a house key, keys for two types of bike locks, a Yelp! bottle opener and a mini carabiner.

Matt EDC 1Writing for WWR, I would be remiss if I was not wearing a watch, and the day I took this photo I had on my Praesto GMT Automatic (I have 9 watches I wear regularly, plus review watches when they come in).  Finally, I have my Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx HD.  My main concern in looking for a smartphone was a long lasting battery life.  I am a weekend warrior, and will use Strava on my phone to track my activities when I bike or hike, and I use a GPS app when golfing.  I wanted to make sure that I could run the GPS for several hours without running out of power.

Matt EDC 2And that really is it.  The camera on my phone is what I use if I am somewhere and need to take an unplanned photo or video, and I only tote a larger camera when I am pretty sure I am going to use it.  I also use the flashlight app on my phone when I need to read a menu in a dimly lit restaurant, so I don’t have a flashlight or lighter.  I take notes on my iPad when I am in a meeting, so I don’t carry a pen or notebook.  everydaycarry.com

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The WWR Team
