A notepad and paper for taking quick scratch notes, then my MacBook
and its power cord.  I use Parallels Desktop to run BackTrack2,
OpenBSD and Windows 2000 (and thus, all of the tools I would want as a
pentester).  If I'm feeling spunky, I'll bring my wireless mouse
along.  Nothing more.  I've occasionally needed to use my USB keychain
to copy some quick files or information from a client during an
engagement, but unless the situation calls for a bunch of other stuff,
I like to go minimalist.

What do you carry with you when you are on the job?  I watched a video
from Iron Geek showing multiple laptops, PDAs, etc and I was curious
what items you have found to be important when going on the job.  In
movies they show the glitz and glamor side of things with rollup
keyboards and gadgets most people probably don't need, but do any of
those things come in handy often enough to take them?

At the risk of being laughed at have you heard of people going as far
as bringing sonic ear type devices or similar surveillance devices to
pull information that way?

Please keep in mind I am very new to the world of pen testing so I
really don't know what situations you can get into other than what I
have heard, but I also heard the world was flat.
