Larry at The Gadgeteer recently shared a photo of his everyday-carry set, and I was particularly intrigued by one piece that seems perfect for pen people.
The Pocket Carry System from Dragonthorn Leatherworks is a custom-made pouch designed to keep all your pocket items in one compact carrier.
Most seem to be made to fit three to four everyday-carry items.
In Larry's case, that includes:
In the center I have my Dragonthorn Leatherworks PC. I designed this holder to carry a Retro 51 Tornado pen (a hold over from my Palm Pilot days) and a Victorinox classic pen knife along with my credit and ID card on the back side. This set up has really forced me to think about what I want/need to carry.
I'm experiencing some serious pocket envy here.
Normally, I carry my pens clipped to the inside of my pocket and am always paranoid about stabbing myself or poking a hole in the pocket when I sit down.
Also, I really dislike carrying a wallet, so my driver's license and cards often end up getting bent and creased from carrying them loose in my pocket.
A Pocket Carry System like the one Larry has would take care of that quite neatly, plus they look great. The price is a little steep – somewhere in the neighborhood of US$100+ – so it will have to go on my wishlist for now, but I think it would be money well spent.
Julie at The Gadgeteer reviewed the PCS when Hauser made one for her everyday-carry set. Check out her take on it.
What do you think, is this an item that you would use for your pens and other everyday carry gear?
