This section of the website is for you to gain an understanding of the world of outdoors/tactical/and Everyday Carry (EDC). There will be lots of resources and recommendations for anybody interested in possibly getting more prepared or is already into the world but is wanting more information and advice.
Everyday and all the time!
Everywhere! At your home, workplace, grocery store.…
Everyone has different levels of EDC. Some people only carry a phone, others carry multiple guns, magazines, knives, flashlights, a first aid kit and this kit could go on and on…
Because it is always good to be prepared for the unexpected and you don’t want to get into a bad situation unprepared.
Please note that these are all recommendations and we have no responsibility over your decisions and actions.
The root to any EDC setup is a good belt, everything you carry will either be attached to your belt or weigh the pants down requiring a belt.
This is a good way to go if you live a fairly average life and don’t carry more than a leatherman or Swiss army with a phone.
This kind of belt is what I currently use. A hiking belt is usually made of a stretchy material and they are very comfortable. It is built for a more rigorous and active lifestyle with a slightly larger EDC. With this belt I carry a leatherman, S and W Borderguard knife, first aid kit, flashlight, phone, pen, and notebook. My hiking belt is made by Arcade belts and I love it. The only reason to go bigger is if you are carrying a gun.
These belts are built for a very rigorous lifestyle and have the ability to handle carrying tons of weight including a gun. These belts are very stiff so they are a little less comfortable but they are good at doing what they are made to do.
This is one of the best items to EDC. Knives can be used for utility but they are also good if you get into a bad defense situation.
These are very capable for utility because of how many tools they have and how small they are. I carry one and use it all the time. I like these because if you need something for utility it doesn’t leave an impression on the people around you quite like my Borderguard would.
A good folding knife is hard to beat. They are small, comfortable, concealable, and very capable. These blades range from the cheap utility folder to the expensive tactical blade. I EDC a Smith and Wesson Borderguard tactical folder and I think it is a great knife. The Borderguard has a 3.5” partially serrated tanto blade, full metal design, seatbelt cutter, and glass breaker.
These are good for the most extreme situations. I have a Ruko 3.5” partially serrated tanto fixed blade. Fixed blades are very durable and are a very good option if you expect to need a big knife on whatever journey you are doing. Fixed blades are not comfortable to carry, leave a bad impression if seen, hard to conceal, and there are lots of laws on how concealed fixed blades are allowed to be.
