The Everyday Carry

EDC Bag Dumps

on location bag dump 1600

Working on location today from a server room somewhere in Mid-Michigan. I was not allowed to bring in the full backpack because it didn't meet the company's security requirements (too large - could steal stuff easily was their concern), so I threw some of the stuff into my daypack and left the backpack in the car. I'll be here for about seven hours today, so this is the gear I have at my disposal.

Ephidrineon

Teachers always tell you "come to class well prepared", and if your Everyday Carry has a loadout like Ephidrineon's on Reddit, you'll be acing classes all year long! For starters, check out the Mil-Tech tactical backpack. When he walks into class with one of those, you know he's serious stuff. He's got pencil, pen, paper and everything else he needs to get through a day of learning (except snacks IMHO), and does it true EDC style!

Weekend Pocket Dump

Going out with the family is always some of the best evenings I have. I keep my personal carry down to a minimum when we go out. It always seems like to kids want mom and I to carry things around for them, so I've learned to keep the pockets mostly empty.

Reddit user, Sung-Gil, a 20 year old student proudly lays out his everyday carry in"Blacked out carry for today" We appreciate the uniform black theme of his EDC, but feel that the Fisher Space Pen should have been replaced by a black pen for this carry. Either way, it's still very nice.

EDCDAD Pocket Dump 1600

Some people can never have enough light. EDCDad seems to be one of them. Three flashlights counted in his pocket dump, he says "One's to loan or give to a friend". Saaay... I need one! Other than that, we like how simple and clean the pocket dump is, and that 1TB Drive is really nice.

BearsOnUnicycles 1600

Reddit user, BearsOnUnicycles, posted his Everyday Carry, and by the looks of it, he's not talking about the day "Black Friday". There's certaintly a lot of black gear here, and those wallets look sweet! Check out the gear list by clicking the title above!

visceralintricacy 1600EDC Style and Function all in one! Usually we see Everyday Carry loadouts that are one or the other. Some are built for style, but really don't have much function, and then on the flip side of the coin, there's the bags that are all fuction and no style. We're not saying one is right and the other is wrong, but we are saying that we really like to see the ones that blend the two together.

Oh, and we really dig the Boker Bolt Action pen!

Halifornialove 1600We love to see clean and neat EDC bag dumps! Everything here has a purpose, and as far as Everyday carry is concerned, everything you'd need to get through a work day (minus food and drink). We're not in love with Mag lights or wallet multi-tools, but hey, if they're you're thing, by all means, carry! We do however, really like the Gerber Dime and Paraframe I. Excellent choices!

Reddit user, bringtharain, posted his EDC Backpack dump for all of us to see. Check out the loadout! We're big fans of both the Fisher Space Pens and Moleskin Cahier Notebooks, and we also have to say that the ThorFire PF0 isn't a bad EDC light either. We do kind of question the need for the Zebra F-301 as he already is carrying the Fisher, so it's just extra weight as far as we're concerned.

Fairly simple but I'm looking for input/suggestions mainly for the amount of keys that I am carrying. At the moment they're all just on a small carabiner but it proves to be bulky/annoying depending which client site I'm at for the day. Because some of the keys are non-standard, it makes picking a key holding solution somewhat tough.

Not in the photo is my laptop case, currently using a simple officemax folder for paper documents (invoices, quotes etc) looking for a nice leather compendium to replace it.
Wallet is hopefully going to be replaced with "The Card Cage" on Kickstarter, if it gets funding

  • Repurpose Beef Jerky Bags For Water Storage

    beef jerky bag water storageBeef Jerky is one of my favorite snacks. If it weren't so darn expensive, I'd be eating a lot more. Funny thing is that those bags that the Jerky comes it are completely waterproof! Most of the beef jerky bags also have a Ziploc enclosure to reseal the bag if you don't eat all the jerky (like that EVER happens). The seals on the side are really good as well, making the beef jerky bag the perfect bag when you have nothing else, and want or need to carry water.

  • Cyalume ChemLights - Is Carrying Glow Sticks Worth It?

    military cyalume chemlightsCyalume Chemlights, more popularly known as Glow Sticks, can be a help in the dark, chasing away your kid's nightmares, and lighting up jack-o-lanterns in a safe, stable way, but chemlights can also be found in military load outs, bug out bags, prepper gear and of course, everyday carry pouches. The question is whether it's worth it to carry Cyalume Glow Sticks as a light source, or not?

  • Everyday Carry Body Cams: Should You Have One In Your EDC?

    XANES T69 Infrared Night Vision Body CamThere's the saying, "No pictures, no proof" which simply means that if you don't have photos or video, whatever you said happened, didn't happen because you can't prove it. That's why we're looking at cheap body cameras to add to your everyday carry. In a world where fights and shootings can break out at any time, having a recording device such as a pen cam or body cam that's ready at a moment's notice is almost an essential for the EDC. For law enforcement, body cams are critical for gathering evidence and many police departments require their officers to wear one.

  • Elan Field Book: A Cheap Alternative To Field Notes

    edc pocket notebook field book elan publishing companyField Notes pocket notebooks are pretty expensive when you go through two a month. I'm always on the hunt for something more cost effective, and recently I came across the Elan Publishing Company Field Book (stk# elan-fn-001b).

    These nice pocket notebooks come in a set of five for $9.99 and offer 24 sheets / 48 pages per book. It's just $2 per book as opposed to the $3.33 per Field Notes book. Overall, the quality is very comparable and durability is every bit as good as the Field Notes brand.

  • Nebo Lil Larry 6373 Work Light 250 Lumens White/Red LED

    thumb NEBO LiL Larry Work LightOK, so I was saving the second Nebo work light for today's review. Yesterday, I reviewed the Nebo LEO 220 Lumens flashlight and this little flashlight is of similar design. Although it doesn't have the spotlight head that the LEO has, the Lil Larry (Stock# 6373) has it's own set of really cool features.

    As the title says, it's a 250 lumen work light, but has a low mode putting out about 100 lumens, and a red LED emergency flasher mode that blinks twice a second. The flashlight costs around $18 on Amazon, and is the perfect work light for your home, car or everyday carry bag.

  • Nebo LEO 220 Lumen Pocket Work Light

    thumb nebo leo black grayNormally I don't get into "normal" flashlights, but today, the LEO worklight by Nebo caught my eye. It was a bit different than most other cheap LED worklights you might find in Walmart or online, and I felt convinced that I had to get it.

    The NEBO LEO is a very bright 220 lumen work lamp that has a swivel-out rotating head to put the light where you need it, but it also has a 80 lumen flashlight at the top as well for spot use. With a price of less than $20 it's a perfect AAA worklight that won't break the bank!
