EDC Maxpedition Essentials


This fall I became somewhat fascinated with everyday carry bags. I wanted to put together a small sketching bag to carry with me when we would go out for dinner, hiking, daytrip etc. with a few extras thrown in. I found a Beefy Maxpedition utility bag that seemed to fit the bill and filled it with everything I thought I might need. The only thing that doesn't fit in there is my iPad mini, but I can carry that separately when needed. I think I went a little overboard with the contents, but here is what's in the bag -

White Uniball Signo gel pen

Platinum Preppy fine nib fountain pen - Platinum green ink

Uniball Deluxe Micro rollerball pen

Adonit Jot Pro iPad/iPhone stylus

Fisher Stowaway pen
