    This will be sort of a catch-all for other miscellaneous EDC gear and equipment.

    Some topics would include:

    CharlehCharleh's suggestion for vials, tubes, tins, and any other small containers for organizing.

    Sunglasses

    I collect unique tins. I don’t have any altoids tins handy for some reason though. Maybe I should get some for DIY projects.

    But this is what I carry. I usually keep ear plugs, guitar picks, change etc. In them. That way I don’t need to fish in my pockets for things.

    The tin on the right was some fancy box I saw at a gas station. Asked the cashier if there was a price tag on it and he just gave it to me!

    They get a lot of one-off deals from government contracts, so it is interesting what you may find on their site.

    One very important piece of EDC gear is sunglasses. While there are many good brands and varieties available, I have been wearing Serengeti sunglasses since 1985. Their driving lenses are just incredible. Even in cloudy, rainy weather, they cut right through the blue light to make visibility much safer for the driving conditions. They are not just sunglasses, they are all-weather driving glasses.

    DRIVERS®

    Launched in 1985, this ideal driving sunglass is the original and emblematic lens of Serengeti®. The amber-colored Drivers lens naturally amplifies contrast and definition. It’s engineered to transmit and distinguish red, green, and yellow colors, so they pop in all environments. This lens provides technicolor sensations of warmth and is ideal for driving because it enhances both colors and contrast, while lightening and darkening to provide optimal light transmission in any condition. Overcast to medium light conditions: Driving, Golf, Onshore, Fresh Water. Available in non-polarized and polarized ultralight mineral and Polar PhD™ 2.0 lenses.

    Home - Serengeti Eyewear

    I still have a couple pair of aviator-style glasses from the 1980's, and I also have the Dante and the Sassari models. One is for driving, the other pair has different lenses for shooting.

    I wear glasses, so my everyday frames are made by Willis and Geiger. They've been out of business for over 20 years, so i have to find frames on eBay or where ever. I like their products. I also wear a military issue A2 flight jacket made Willis and Geiger.

    Not a good pic of me, but the only one I could find of me wearing a Wills and Geiger flight jacket (G1 here, rather than an A2) and Willis and Geiger glass frames.
