To all my fellow EDC'ers...

I assume that 1 or 2 of you are having the same *HIGHLY UNCOMMON* issue as myself with clips shredding up your pockets... In my case it is my Tac-light that eats up my pockets due to the rough grip texture of the metal housing in combined with a (tight) pocket clip that clamps onto the flashlight. (no screws to loosen the clip)

 

That said, I'd like to know about your pockets!! lol.. Specifically which of your EDC items is the pocket eater and the solutions or products you've come up with to deal with it!

For me the solution was simple: get a bag with MOLLE-compatible webbing on the front, then just hang stuff off that when needed. ;)

I usually wear 511's with a, to me anyway, separate knife pocket. My EDC folder, a Buck Vantage stays put but doesn't abrade the pocket material. When I wear suits and dressier clothes, I still use the Vantage but so far no shredded pockets.

Getting a lot of tear out from my knife clips. Have not looked into reinforcing the pocket edge. It's my jeans that are showing the wear, dress pants are still looking ok.
