To some, it’s just the stuff they have to haul around. To others, the selection of gear one carries each day borders on an artform. How you arrive at your EDC is personal. It’s your chosen collection of those four, ten, maybe six, perhaps five items that will travel with you wherever you go. It’s the stuff that ensures you can handle whatever the day or night brings, and you can handle it with exactly the right tools at your disposal.
Everyday carry (EDC) or every-day carry is a collection of useful items that are consistently carried on person every day. The main reasons for having EDC are utility and preparedness; to help individuals overcome simple everyday problems, including possible emergency situations. Some of the most common EDC items are wallets, key rings, phones, watches, knives, flashlights, multitools, notebooks, and pens.
Check them out and soon you’ll find yourself and your EDC ready for the expected, the unexpected, and everything in between.
