|The Essential Pocket Gear : Key, iPod Touch, Phone, Wallet|
Inspired by "The Verges" whats in your bag.
I don't carry a bag, and if I do it is a Jansport backpack from 1995. I waterproofed it several times and it still works great. I normally only bring that along on hiking, bicycling and long distance motorcycling trips.
|4th Generation iPod Touch|
Yes, the case is busted and taped together :)
The dumb phone is a 3rd generation LG EnV 3 : It flips open to a full qwerty keyboard, has a wanky 3MP camera with LED flash, and runs on Verizons ultra dependable wireless network. I only use this for voice and text: no internet package. I got locked into a data free plan back in 2008 so they can not force a data package on my phone. I actually dropped and broke the screen, and replaced it myself via instructions from ifixit.
This one has held up for over 5 years now :)
I have built a mental pattern of randomly pocket patting to check for the critical 4, so I never leave any one of those items behind.
I also normally roll with a camera other than the ones on my iPod and Phone. For dry weather or indoor events I take along a canon S95. For wet weather or rugged required events I take along a Pentax W90.
Sometimes, I carry my Garmin with me. It mostly gets used on a vehicle (bicycle, motorcycle, car), but very rarely I end up needing it in my pocket.
