I understand that providing a mainfest of everything in my pockets, stuffed into my backpack, or otherwise sitting in my apartment is perhaps not the wiseest idea ever, but what can I say, I'm an optimist. I'd take it as a kindness if you didn't steal my things.
Charlie Wallet, by Herschel - A great looking, durable, light-weight minimalist wallet. Has room for up to four cards (two debit cards, insurance, and drivers license in my case), plus a little pouch for your mugging money. Barely noticeable in my front pocket.
Streamlight MicroStream Flashlight - This is a perfect daily carry flashlight. It uses a standard AAA battery, so it's always easy to keep it powered up. It fits neatly in the corner of my pocket and puts out a ton of light. Plus, you can remove the button cover and turn it from a recessed button to a protruding button (I always leave this cover off).
Opinel No. 8 Pocket Knife - This is everything you could ask for in a pocket knife. A reasonably long, sharp blade in an elegant package this is excellent to grip, and has the ability to lock the blade so you don't accidentally close or open it (depending).
Fisher Bullet Space Pen - This ink pen has a pressurize cartridge so that it's always ready to write, and folds up to half its size. Made of metal and clips onto the pocket next to my flashlight. I like having my own pen to sign credit card receipts at restaraunts, especially during the pandemic. I find myself using it for all kinds of other things throughout the day. You almost always need a pen.
