So I usually carry at least one Pen and One Sharpie and I clip them inside my right hand side pants pocket, this can get annoying sometimes when i'm digging in to grab my keys or anything els. So I wanted to see how everyone els is carrying their writing tools for quick access.

I normally carry a fisher space pen, and it rides in my left front pocket along with my phone, flashlight, and MT. I opted for the pen without a pocket clip on it, so it is very slim and takes up very little pocket space.

At work, I keep a gel ink pen in my bag, a stainless steel Sharpie pen in my hip pocket and a Kaweco Liliput in my bag with my notebook.

Outside of work I'll carry my space pen in my pocket if the thing ever arrives.

At work, just like this: along with my report log notes. When I'm at home or out of the house, I usually just lazily shove a pen in my left pocket with my zippo, flashlight and SAK. Attached File  image.jpg   231.77KB   4 downloads

My main pen is on my SAK Midnite Manager; in my bag is my QDC (below), and I have my primary Zebra Surari in large quantities at my desks at home and in the office.

Check out the Nock Company (Nockco.com) for awesome handmade cordura pen carriers. I use the Lookout 3-Pen case for my nicest fountain pens. The case rides in a zippered pouch in my work backpack. Great company with some awesome products.The rest of my pens simply ride in some pen slots in another pouch in my backpack.

I too like the Fisher Pen without the clip.  I find they get lost in my pocket though...  Great product "Fisher Pens".

That Fisher pen is on my wish list, I've been meaning to buy one of these pens since I saw Adam Savage caring one.

I haven't experimented with Fountain Pens much, I'd like to try one out tho. That stainless steel sharpie sounds pretty cool tho!

Really keep the pen for everday carry to outdoors becomes a tedious task sometimes. I don't usually carry the pens in my pocket but tag them using the clip into my everyday carry bag.

Nice! yea i saw that custom side pocket. I remember being at a military surplus store and 511 tactical was selling a polo shirt that had a pocket for pens on the sleeve of the shirt just underneath the shoulder I thought that was pretty cool.

I might need to pick some up like that for when I'm not at work or at a casual event, really love the pen pockets

Stylus_Clip.jpg

 

My Fisher Stylus clips unto my left pants pocket when I wear dress pants. Unclipped it ends up resting horizontal in the pocket and leaves an unsightly silhouette.

 

When I wear jeans I take the clip off and it rests in the pocket vertically. The slimmer fit of my jeans keeps it in place.
