IMG_1121All across the Internet you’ll see thousands of articles and pictures of elaborate everyday carry (EDC) setups that people actually keep on them throughout the day.

Many people often carry A LOT of gear.

The problem with carrying a large amount of items is that it becomes tedious, a hassle, and eventually, you decide to not carry all that stuff. The decision may be conscious or in-conscious but, for the average person, it’s tough to carry a large amount of EDC gear.
A question you may have asked is, how much EDC gear should I keep on me?
Eventually you’ve probably wondered, what items are most essential ?

The real answer is that that there is no right answer..

However, below is what we recommend you keep on you as a minimum.

1. A cutting tool (a good, sturdy knife)

2. Combustion tool (lighter or fire steel)

3. A light source

4. A small multi tool

AND THATS IT! 

IMG_3278If you feel you should also carry a defensive weapon, then that should certainly be included in this list. 

A common and easy to carry setup often includes:

– Cold Steel American Lawman

Fixr EDC multi-tool by True Utility

Exotac Nano Fire Starter

Fenix E05 EDC flashlight (AAA Battery)

– and some fire cord for tinder!
