I have seen a lot of videos on YouTube with people showing their EDC (Every Day Carry) kits. Many of them I see really as survival kits. I mean – some of these are in large bags with multiple pockets weighing in over 20 pounds. To me – this is not something that most anyone would carry daily. Car kit? Maybe. In this post I want to pass on some info of what I generally carry every day on my person.
I have used these “Pock-Its” for years at my job and they are durable and stand up to a lot of abuse. I ordered the one above through Amazon. Not as big as many other EDC’s out there – it can carry a decent amount of stuff.
Made of a Coruda-type material – it is decently attractive and does not carry a tactical look to it.
With numerous pockets available for flashlights, multi-tools, matches, fish-hooks, scissors, batteries, band-aides, etc – this pouch can carry quite a bit on your belt.
I do not carry much as I do not like the added weight. Much of what I carry I use daily. Starting off I have a 3 watt LED flashlight and a pair of Gerber Multi-pliers.
I wear glasses and without them I cannot see well at all. In the lower front pouch I keep a few Sight Savers which I can use to clean my glasses.
In the back I have a few band-aids.
That’s it. I can add more at anytime and many of my systems change and evolve every so often. I could throw a book of matches in – that would not be a bad idea. I have tried – but I have not managed to get my AR to fit yet.
Like I said earlier – this may be small compared to many other EDC kits out there – but it works for me.
Take care all -
