Back right pocket: Sunglasses in case (swap with regular glasses when outside)

Front left pocket: Cigarettes, lighter

Front right pocket: Phone

Small right front pocket: Car key with novelty turtle keychain

How do you guys roll?

Back pockets are evil, and almost none of my trousers have them. I don't want to spend all day sitting on my keys.

I have a messenger bag that has most of my stuff in it (wallet, comb, gum, battery pack for phone, spare glasses, notebook, book/Kindle, fidget toys etc.), so the majority of the time the only things in my pockets are my phone and earbuds (left trouser) and my keys (right trouser). I've always got a handkerchief somewhere on my person.

As fashion designers don’t think women need pockets, I either have a handbag with everything and the kitchen sink in it. Or my phone in the left side of my bra and my keys in the right side.

I just kinda sorta put my phone and wallet in whatever side pocket I feel like that day. I like to surprise myself. My keys go in whatever pocket my wallet is in. I think I put something in my back pocket like once and it was a nightmarish 5 minutes.

If I can find an excuse though, I like to roll with a backpack or messenger bag to keep my pockets free. Preferably a backpack though because it's more suitable for running which I do often.

Left shirt pocket: Cigarettes and Lighter.

Keys and a swiss army knife go clipped to my belt loop.

I have a pair of Ridgeline pants from 5.11 that have some of the best pockets I've had the pleasure of using, including twp back pockets that are high and out enough that you don't sit on whatever is in them so I throw my phone and wallet in those. Don't even feel them sitting which is great and there's less digging around for things as the size is perfect. Carry keys with a firestarter rod and bottle opener on a carabiner on a front facingbelt loop after dropping my keys when I thought I was putting them in my pocket getting out of the car and having to break into my damns car, then lighter and airpods in the "knife" pocket on the other side. I usually clip a folding knife on the outside of the other knife pocket, although sometimes I'll carry a fixed blade on my belt. Pack of smokes front left breast pocket, pen and Rite in Rain notepad in right breast pocket. Usually keep a surefire hooked somewhere on my pants depending on how much I expect to need it.

Need to pick out a multitool to replace the one I lost, usually in my front pocket.

Pretty soon I'll be replacing my pistol so I'll be running a Glock 19 IWB on one hip with extra mags on my belt.

I've also developed a habbit of keeping a 5.56 shell after doing several weeks of frequent shooting and finding it hand for adjusting various things across the rifles, etc, so I usually have a piece of brass in one of my front pockets.

Usually wearing a baseball cap these days as well.

Standard wallet/keys/phone for my pockets, but if we're counting my work backpack (which is with me most of the time) then it's a whole host of IT equipment. Laptop, various chargers, ethernet cables, screwdriver kit, cable tester, safety glasses, etc. Think there's a hard drive dock in there right now?

Left pocket: Travel card, wallet, keys

Right pocket: Phone

Back left pocket: Earbuds

Back right pocket: Tissue?

Putting valuables in the back is a great way to get robbed in a city. If it's cold I wear a jacket so then I'll transfer everything except my phone and travel card to the inside pocket.

I put nothing in my back pocket. I got used to not sitting on my wallet and now I can't get used to the wallet in my back pocket anymore. A pen goes in the pocket with my wallet.

Cellphone goes in my other pocket. Keys get clipped to my belt.

I don't carry anything else with me.

Surprised at the amount of tissues I'm seeing here. Y'all are well prepared!

And to clarify my first post; pockets are emptied for any extended sitting period. Sunglasses are always removed for any sitting period.

I hate carrying things unless I have to, so I wear jackets with many pockets and tend to eat out at restaurants for lunch (I know it's not economical, food is mostly healthy though). If I for some reason bring lunch it's usually in a small bag and I'll bring my tablet too in those cases. But yeah, the jacket is stuffed with the essentials like wallet, keys, phone, tissues and reflexive stuff so I don't get run over in the dark. Then I still have plenty of room to get whatever else I want in there like my Vita/3DS, small tools etc. Two of the pockets are big enough to fit a small book in!

Small right front pocket: Car key with novelty turtle keychain

I wish to see this novelty turtle keychain. I don't have anything really special (aside from having to carry passport at all times because Russia) except after years of wearing out pockets with my keys, I keep my keys in a little cloth holder thing I got in Shanghai years ago. One of those lucky cat things. I'll try to find a picture.

If I'm wearing a jacket, phone and passport on one inside pocket, wallet in the other, keys/workpass/whatever are somewhere in the front. Please don't mug me.

I nearly always have a backpack that I put my wallet and keys into if I don't intend on using them anytime soon.

If not I will always have a jacket and ALWAYS go:

Left jacket pocket: Pre-rolled cigarettes (rollies) and lighter

Right jacket pocket: Phone with earbuds attached

Inside jacket pocket: I couple of tissues in case I need to sneeze or get my hands dirty. During winter I usually have hand sanitiser because of all the germs from sick people, especially on public transport.

Left pocket: Keys with bottle opener and small flick knife because I've been mugged once and attempted to be mugged twice in the past 5 years. Like someone else said you never know when you might need to go uh uh uh uh uh.

Right trouser pocket: Wallet

Usually carry a water bottle in my hand or backpack. Sometimes that will be vodka and 7up ;)

Always have a pen in my backpack but never a notebook...?

Don't put shit in your back pockets, that is the fucking worst.

Are you making us reveal what pockets to pick to get the most value? For shame. Either way, here's my setup:

Front left pocket: Phone

Front right pocket: keys, wallet (slim card case type) and snus.

Both back pockets are empty. Well, when I don't put receipts in there for safe keeping until I do laundry.

@littlewask: Here ya go. Apologies for how filthy it is, but I did buy it 9 years ago. It used to have a bell and one of the hands sewn to its chest (?) and a little loop thing inside so the keys could pop out and be pulled back in. Now it's more like a pocket.

I equip myself depending on the encounter.

What I mean by that is sometimes I carry tissues with me when allergy season is abound. The one consistent thing I tend to have with me is my music machine, which comes in the form of a mobile phone. Right front pocket. The slightly less consistent thing are my house keys. I'm a terrible, terrible tenant. Usually stashed in my wallet, which either goes in my back right pocket, or preferably in a jacket pocket close to the heart.

I hate carrying a bag unless I really have to, so I pocket everything. Fortunately I don't need a lot of shit for my daily routine.

Front left is phone, front right is keys and access cards

Back right is wallet, back left is open for business.

If I have a coat (rare these days, on account of the average daily temperature here being 30 degrees) then the inside breast pocket is my kindle. It used to be cigarettes but Kindles are healthier, apparently.

I’m afraid I don’t carry more than my phone in my front right pocket, with a wallet case, and a key chain in my left front pocket. Actually, I also have a set of earbuds in the front pocket of my hoodie/shirt/sweater, when not in use.

I have a tendency of putting various paper documents and receipts in my jacket pocket and they usually stay there until the jacket is cleaned.
