When going through the everyday struggles of life, we all have those things we carry with us that we depend on, which we call our Everyday Carry or EDC for short. Whether it’s just the things we are able to carry in our pockets or the numerous additional items we are able to bring in a bag or backpack, these items in our arsenal can literally spell the difference between life and death. Well, not really, but you get the point.
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, and to prepare someone for unexpected and possibly dangerous situations.From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
