GEAR UP WITH THESE EDC PACK HACKS
HOW MUCH GEAR IS TOO MUCH? WE SAY NEVER ENOUGH!
Here are some HACKS FOR YOUR PACKS to think about:
JUST SO YOUR UP TO SPEED: Everyday carry (EDC) or every day carry refers to items that are carried on a consistent basis to assist in dealing with normal everyday needs of modern society, including possible emergency situations. Some of the most common EDC items are knives, flashlights, multitools, wallets, smartphones, notebooks, and pens.
Top Picks for Every Day Carry Gear

The Military has been influencing our lives for years. You can see it reflected in all parts of our lives like clothing styles, communications technology, medical advancements and so much more.
That doesn’t even include the big influences like it’s effect on the economy.
But you won’t see any area as affected by the Military as the Every Day Carry (often written as EDC) community. In fact, the EDC community is often made up of active and retired Military, Police, Fire Fighters and EMTs.
If you are new to EDC it’s really simple. It’s just the things we carry on a daily basis, hence the name: Every Day Carry. Some people have to gear up for work but others are just fans. For example, my day job is in an office, so I don’t need to carry bushcraft gear on a daily basis.
But if I’m out on a hike you can be sure I’ve got everything I need.
Like many in the EDC community, loadout changes almost daily. I like having options of what to carry based both on need and situation.
This is by no means a complete list of all the gear people put in their kit. It’s not meant to be a checklist of all the things you should carry every day.
What you carry depends on your job, the day’s requirements, weather and so on.
I’ve broken things down into a few broad categories. I’ll talk about my favorites and what I like about them as well as the popular items in that category.
There are a few items on this list that I think are a good idea to have on you at all times. They just come in handy in so many situations. A good torch is an absolute must-have. While there are some great cheap flashlights out there that will absolutely get the job done I splurged a little and got a bit higher end flashlight that still shouldn’t break the bank. If you don’t mind second hand there are always deals out there if you are patient.
A piece of history: Higonokami

The Higonikami knife is a traditional japanese friction folder first forged in 1896. There is only one maker left in Japan that can genuine higonokami knives, and the higonokami is truly a piece of art and history.
Two Is One, One Is None: All About Backups
If you’ve been into everyday carry for a while now, you’ve probably heard the saying “two is one, one is none.” In other words, it means you should carry a backup. If you’re only carrying one critical item (like a knife or flashlight) and it breaks or goes missing, then you’re out of luck.
By carrying a backup (whether it be on your person, or in a pouch/bag) you can ensure that you’ll never be stranded without the tools you need.
In this guide, we’ll explain the benefits of following the “two is one…” mantra, how to put it into practice, and some solid gear recommendations to get you started.
Why Carry a Backup?
While minimalism can work well in your EDC, you might also benefit from some thoughtful redundancy. To learn more about that, check out this article on the topic. There are many upsides to having backup items, but the main points boil down to these three:
- In Case of Main Tool Failure: When you put your gear through the wringer day in and day out, there’s a chance your gear can fail. Whether it’s something with moving parts like a folding knife or something with batteries or electronics like a flashlight, a backup item gives you some insurance.
- For example, if your flashlight battery dies, you don’t want to be left in the dark. Simple things like carrying an additional battery or keeping a small light on your keychain make great fixes.
- Increased Versatility with Complementary Functions: That serrated tanto knife you carry may not be the ideal in all situations. Something in a different size or with complementary functions (for example, a small plain edge blade for precision work) can help your EDC cover a wider range of tasks.
- To Help Others Stay Prepared: If a friend needs to borrow a knife, light, or multitool, you can be prepared. Plus, why trust someone else with your favorite EDC if you can just hand them your beater knife.
What’s in Your Pockets?
While knowing how to properly defend yourself without tools is important, why put yourself at a disadvantage from the beginning?
Yes, a pocket full of “stuff” can often be a burden, but your situation and clothing will dictate the level of “discomfort” you’re willing to tolerate. Set yourself up for success in whatever way you’re comfortable with.
Carrying a gun, knife, wallet, medical kit, tourniquet, keys, pen, flashlight and all the other litter that might mean “prepared” to you, can be completely ludicrous to the person who will more than likely find themselves in a position of needing those items one day.
They’re the same people that you carry a gun to protect and a medical kit to save.
Those who chastise people for what they choose to carry are either self-conscious about their own preparedness, or they’re simply those who expect others to come to their rescue when disaster strikes.
