The list author says: "Tired of seeing Every Day Carry (EDC) lists that would require a backpack to tote around? We all live in the real world, and have to constrain our EDC to stuff we can actually carry in our pockets without looking like Indiana Jones or Bear Grylls heading into the Amazon! I carry these items every day and they all disappear easily into my pockets. Remember... if you're not always prepared, you're never prepared!"
"If you carry a concealed weapon or other items on your belt I recommend you change your style of dress to incorporate the wear of ‘tail out’ long sleeve cargo shirts. Lots of pockets are useful, long sleeves are more versatile than short sleeves, and ‘tail out’ covers your weapon(s). These Columbia’s are durable, versatile, and comfortable and are available in a range of colors."
"In certain situations I wear a vest. I favor the RedHead ripstop utility vest (not sold on Amazon), but this vest or the Rothco Plainclothes Concealed Carry Vest work well enough. The extra pockets come in handy, especially on trips out into the woods."
"I use this holster for my Sig P238 .380 automatic. This holster rides high on the belt, conforms to the body and is easily covered by a shirt tail. The P238 is a good compromise between power and concealability. The larger and more powerful your handgun, the less likely you are to carry it concealed, simply due to bulk and weight."
"The threat of having your credit cards read RIGHT THROUGH YOUR WALLET by RFID readers is a VERY REAL THREAT! These card sleeves will protect you. Use one for each credit card and for any ID card with a magnetic strip or chip."
"This massive Cold Steel tactical folder clips easily inside the waistband of your pants with the included clip, and opens with a flick of the wrist. The kukri-style blade is thick, broad, 6" long and delivers incredible chopping force for a folder. An excellent defensive weapon for times when you can't carry a gun."
"Never be without a signaling device. This one is LOUD and is sure to get everyone's attention! Note that one of these comes with the survival kit listed below. If you buy that kit just pull the whistle and clip it to your keychain!"
"Compact and lightweight this survival kit really is pocket-size. I don’t carry this every day but I keep it handy to stick in my cargo pocket if I am headed out into the woods. Pull out the whistle and clip it to your keychain. I’ve added the items below to this kit."
