    Small backpacks and mini-packs seem to be all the rage right now. It seems like everyone is buying them as an Every Day Carry (EDC) bag including men like me who seldom ventured in the man-purse or "murse" arena before. These compact, low-profile packs are perfect for activities like hikes, an...

    The title is redundant, I know, but I got to thinkin'... I've seen all sorts of EDC Kits from Altoids Tins to small backpack and everything in between. I began pondering the whole Goldilocks & The 3 Bears Syndrome and thought "which one would be right for me?" IMHO, it'd have to have the...

    Hey guys, I am pretty new to this forum, but participate on a few different knife forums. I always like to read the EDC threads on those, just to see the different things that people are carrying. I was excited to see the EDC thread on this forum, but was also surprised to see that many of the...

    I thought most carried bleach for this purpose. Its the only water purification I've actually used. 2 drops in a canteen, carried in your cheap orange whistle/compass combo. My wife showed me this with Girl Scouts training they received and we've used this ever since. Then I watched these...

    I thought you'd like to see what all can fit in a original Gunslinger. Basically a comfortable 3 to 5 day pack-- indefinite if you can trap/fish or hunt. You get the idea'er. I could squeeze my North Face 2 man 3 season tent in there-- but it adds 8 pounds. 2 weeks ago I walked up into the local...

    I have heard everyone talk about BOBs, BOLs, and BOVs but not much talk about your EDC (every day carry). I will have to rely on my EDC to get me to my home and then decide on the appropriate action. Any comments would be appreciated.

    I want an EDC bag in Attache or Messenger style. Not too tactical if possible. I wear a tie to work and don't want it to stand out too much. Maxpeditions are too much $$$. What cheaper alternatives are out there? (and where to buy them) Also any opinion on County Comm bail out bags...

    Maybe I'm just blind, but I've searched and searched, and can't seem to find an epic Every Day Carry topic, so if there is one, forgive my ignorance. But in any event, my EDC is constantly changing, and the stuff I've got here is subject to change frequently. I know some of it is going to change...
