Hardly anything at all from that list. Maybe a camera, occasionally, and sometimes a GPS if I'm driving in unfamiliar territory. Certainly not items I would take with me every day.

I always carry a backpack that contains my wallet, a Panasonic point and shoot and my iPad. I used to carry a diary and small notebook but the iPad covers that better now as well as being a GPS.

Leatherman on my belt...
Small three bladed "Old Timer" pen knife in my pocket.
Carmex (lip balm) this time of year.
And most days, a leatherman micro-tool.

Wallet, keys, pen... all a given.

I seem to be carrying my iPad more often, but usually I don't carry it on my person.

Summertime- key set 1, usually key set 2, cell phone, wallet.
Drastically different in the wintertime when I have 5 times more pockets.
Just call me lumpy.

Always have pocket knife, wallet, car keys in pants. jacket will have cell phone and change.
Sometimes I carry a man-bag with a lotta crap in it and mostly only use a pen and the thumb drive that are in it.
