FEATURE: Building an EDC That You’ll Actually Carry

FEATURE: Building an EDC That You’ll Actually Carry

The right stuff in the right pocket.

Want to carry really cool gear without scaring your family and friends? This video is all about crafting a light weight (but high end) every day carry that you can actually fit in your pockets/bags – no cargo pants required.

I cover what I carry in my pockets every day, the one pound (ish) mini kit that lives in my backpack, and my MacGyver kit that I swap out for if i’m going on vacation or another adventure.


Links to Grab the Gear

I’ve shopped around for the cheapest prices online, and you’ll find those below. (Some of these links are affiliate links that cost nothing to you, but the retailer will give us a small percentage of your purchase to help support the channel.)
