What is EDC (Everyday Carry)?

Everyday carry (EDC) or every-day carry is a collection of useful items that people carry with them every day. The main reason for EDC is to be prepared for everyday problems or unexpected situations. These can range from the ability to open a jammed glove compartment, to a proper zombie apocalypse. Some of the most common EDC items are:

  • Wallets
  • Smartphones
  • Keys
  • Knives
  • Multitools
  • Watches
  • Notebooks
  • Pens
  • Firearms (in some cases)

Most of these are carried in various pockets in everyday clothing, but pros are using:

  • EDC pouches
  • EDC backpacks
  • EDC sling bags.

This depends highly on the carrier of the items and what (s)he is doing.

Making the most out of your Everyday Carry by using EDC kits, layouts and carry modes, is what we aim to help you with.
