Every Day Carry, or EDC, generally refers to small items or gadgets worn, carried, or made available in pockets, holsters, or bags on a daily basis to manage common tasks or for use in unexpected situations or emergencies. In a broader sense, it is a lifestyle, discipline, or philosophy of preparedness. I like to think that it is better to have and not need than to need and not have. I think many people EDC to some degree but are not aware of it -- things like Swiss Army Knives, carrying a pen with you or a bottle opener or LED on your keychain are all considered EDC. Hopefully this thread can help everyone be that much more prepared just in case!

Between the wallet and phone is a pair of Gerber nail clippers. Gots pillz in the spy capsule.

Also have been carrying a Strider SNG over the Warren Thomas micro m19 the past few days.

Here's a group shot of the many things I carry around every day:

pockets.jpg

Most stoked on this little guy I made recently to hold my keys without all that janitor steez hanging from my belt loop. It used to be a little bike tool, but now it holds all but my car key + a little screwdriver.

Damn dude, you carry a fixed blade around? Every catch any shit for that?

i dont wear it on my belt or anything and show it off, if anything i usually goes in my bag or in the backpocket.

its also pretty small, bout the size of a paring knife, and i use it more for work (opening boxes, fine detail cutting) than cutting a sandwich in the caf.

awsome knife tho

I generally do not prepare a BOB (Bug Out Bag), especially for EDC purposes. I tend to limit my gear to a length of 3.5" max so everything fits in my pockets. I can fit my Leatherman and wallet in my back pocket together.. My Spyderco cricket is insanely thin so I can fit that in my front pocket, etc. Hopefully other guys here can chime in with some ideas.

i can't go outside in garments that don't have pockets...it freaks me out.

I've got some serious janitor action going most days, I didn't even put up pictures of my work keys, I have to be able to get to them quickly so that key holder thing that ryan made is a no go:( still really dope though. I was actually thinking about using that rubber dip stuff that they use on the handles of tools to quiet down the jingle effect that I constantly have.

The infamous dick bag! Nice stuff rome, what's in the spy capsule?

I carried one for a bit with tylenol, toothpicks, and a $20 in it, but it took up too much room on the keychain. Need a slimmer one like yours and sonny's.

rome 6 blades and zero flashlights???

wildstyle if I were you, I would get the Countycomm Peanut lighter and take the lighter out to use as a spy capsule. It's $11 but the quality is so much better than the pill caps on ebay. Brushed stainless vs cheap metal w/ a finish that flakes off.. I think it's a good compromise in quality and price without having to resort to titanium.

and as for those urban wallets, what if corter made one?? o__O??

also really diggin this

Rolled up ten, ( the $20 I'd spend in a bar too fast and that's not an emergency) and two aleve. I got them off amazon 6 for 6 bucks shipped. And they actually stay closed.

They don't all travel together at the same time usually I only have two or three on me at any given moment. and I know about the flashligh... never got schooled on them just knives and cigars for some reason, but give it a little time and that will change real soon.
