Now that we’re starting to get out and about, many of us are carrying a lot more than we’ve been doing over the past couple of years, so I invited my readers to share what they’ve written about Organizing Your Everyday Carry.
I was surprised to discover a Wikipedia entry for “everyday carry” which describes it as follows:
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, pistols, knives, flashlights, multitools, notebooks, and pens.
While often distributed among pockets in everyday clothing, carry options are frequently expanded by the addition of clothing accessories like a fanny pack, purse, small day pack, sunglasses, bracelets, or even footwear like long boots or a vest with pockets. How EDC items are stored, though, depends on the purpose and intentions of EDC items. The optimization of everyday carry (kit/layouts and carry modes) has become an internet subculture.
This topic clearly encompasses more than I realized and I’m excited to see the wide variety of posts I received. You can read them all here:
