I'm just curious how everyone carries everything. I'm 7 years career, 15 volunteer. I carry basics. a flat head and philips screwdriver, large cable cutters, channel locks, which I flattened one handle and ground the other to a point, to function as my center punch. All of which I carry in a homemade pouch I made out of 4" supply and duct tape. keeps everything together in a handy pouch, and it was free. I carry 50" webbing which I store in a nitrile glove for ease of deployment with beaners attached. I have 2 garrity LED's strapped to my helmet with a bike tube. They are cheap and bright. They burn out or melt....it's $2 to replace. some chocks and golf tee's also in my helmet. I'm assigned in a truck company, so I don't bother with spanner stuff. And I only added maybe 2 lbs to my gear. I run 1300 a year, on my tour. I'm not carrying more them I have to.Lt.

Jacket right pocket: Right mechanics glove and my hood.
Right pants pocket: 25' Webbing loop, 2 carabiners, right structural glove.
Left Pants Pocket: Cable Cutters (just like ffemt88), folding spanner wrench, utility knife and my left structural glove.
I have a Streamlight Vantage helmet light... I don't like it.
We're issued Bright Star Responder flashlights for our coats which aren't bad.
In my radio pocket I've got, well, my radio and a shove knife.
I also carry a Bright Star Light Hawk lantern light... I love that thing.
Oh, and I have my knife and shove knife strapped to my radio strap. Nothing worse then a radio taking up a pocket on your gear for no reason.
