Everyday Carry EDC

What's In Your Everyday Carry?

EDC is Everyday Carry

EDC is Everyday Carry

The Everyday Carry is all about what you carry everyday. Everyday Carry is EDC for short and consists of the items that you normally carry at any given time throughout your day. These might be normal everyday objects such as a wallet, keys and phone, but also can include flashlights, multitools, knives and other things that can make getting through the day easier and better. For some of us, an extra packet or two of instant coffee we can drop into hot water when we need a pickup might be an everyday carry item, while a chef might carry a melon baller. There's no such thing as the best everyday carry for every individual, but you can customize your EDC to meet your personal needs and lifestyle.

  • Stay Hydrated This Summer with Collapsible Water Bottles

    Vapur Element Collapsible Water BottlesSummer in almost upon us, and staying hydrated is always important.

    We've been to the zoo many times last summer, and without fail, you'd an emergency where someone just dropped or got really dizzy from heat exaustion.

    The loss of body fluids can sneak up on you, for sure, but one thing you should consider carrying in your everyday carry this summer are a couple of collapsible water bottles. 

    Most of us can just stop at a store and pick up a few bottles of water, but what do you do when the water runs out?

  • How To Get The Right Binoculars

    how to choose your binocularsI don't usually carry binoculars everyday, but they are definitely one of the things that I keep in my car. I usually grab them when the family and I go out for walks in the woods and when I go hiking around, but other than that, the only other times that I pull them out is when there might be a lunar eclipse, at an airshow or some other event that I really want a better view.

    There are quite a few different binoculars available, but when I purchased mine, I was looking for smaller, more compact ones as opposed to the full size pouch carried binoculars. I feel that if I ever did need to carry them for distances, or out of necessity, a smaller set would fit better into my bag than having to carry a whole separate pouch.

  • How To Use Your Watch As A Compass

    how to use watch as compassYou Don't Need That Compass Watch!

    Its quite possible that you don't need to buy that expensive compass watch you've been looking at for the past couple months. In fact, you can use just about any watch to figure out the compass directions pretty easily. 

    While you usually can just position the sun as east or west of where you're standing depending on the time of day, using a watch as a compass will be a bit more accurate.

  • Best Walkie Talkie For Family EDC

    Motorola TALKABOUT MH230R walkie talkiesOur Family Walkie Talkie Communication Solution

    In A Family, Communication Is Key

    Our family takes regular daytrips to really cool places on weekends. We like to go exploring in local forests and parks. Sometimes we head to the Zoo. Other times we go up to large malls to do a bit of shopping. Regardless of where we go as a family, every family member has their own walkie talkie. We've found that having personal communication devices such as walkie talkies are great for communication with the whole family. 

    We didn't want to have to spend money on monthly phone service for the three younger ones -- they don't need phones... yet.

    Reddit user, Comet_tanner, posted his personal carry, and it's a fine set of items he has, isn't it. The Spyderco Slysz Bowie is an excellent knife for just about any personal carry, the Field Notes Journal and Koh-I-Noor Leadholder add a tasteful touch.

    We love the Minnesota Leatherworks card holder. It's a great way to make a lasting impression.
