Hi all. Doesn't seem to be very many women who are interested in the EDC world. I'm obsessed with pocket knives, flashlights, watches, tactical pens and heavy primarily metal mechanical pencils. I love all kinds of pocket stuff. But when having to dress "professionally" for work (i.e. Slacks, skirts, etc) what are good ideas for carrying my most important EDC stuff? I currently have a maxpedition style pocket organizer that I keep my field notes and pens and flashlights and chapstick in I get tired of having to HOLD it while I'm on a job walk etc. Anyone else have this issue? And if so how do you deal? Thanks for reading. :-)

Haveyou got a pocket organizer ? It can be a kind issue for all your stuff to carry.

My suggestion would be to reduce and scale down your carry. Try to pick up items that fulfill more than one task.

Thats what I do. I have a minimalistic carry for situations when my on person carry is limited.

 

For example:

Do you really need to carry a flashlight or your phone's flashlight can do?

Do you feel comfortable using a wallet/phone case to carry ID, Cards and cash?

Are you willing to trade your dedicated folder for a Victorinox Signature, which already comes with a pen, and you can carry on your keychain?

I appreciate the feedback. The attached rickshaw above looks great but again, my issue is no pocket and no belt. So ultimately I would need something with a belt "clip" to attach to the waist of my slacks and such. It seems that all EDC pocket organizers are only meant to be slipped into a pocket and no one has considered pocketless folk such as I. I will continue on my quest...thank you.

How about something like this for your smaller items:

And this if you are carrying your notebook:

Because this one is a bi-fold I wonder if you can saddle one end on the inside of your belt.

Even if we do have pockets in our pants - they are often so small as to be worthless...it's a pet peeve.

In your original post you didn't mention you carry a purse, but it still would be "hands-free". Or a small sling? I have a canvas 5L and it sounds ideal for what you need it for.

I thought women were more into EDC than men are. Most of them I know carry a bag full of stuff around everywhere they go.
