EDC or Every Day Carry is a term that I first heard about years ago to describe the tools and implements one could carry with them every day to either assist them with some of life’s minor inconveniences or in a worst case scenario, to help them survive. It’s the tools that each prepper should have on them at all times so they can deal with whatever Murphy in his insane cruelty, throws at you.
I might have first been exposed to the term EDC, by Nutnfancy who has a very interesting video that covers his own take on what he includes in his Every Day Carry among other topics. Regardless of where it came from I have thought about my own personal EDC every single day since then. I think about my own EDC every time I get dressed or at a bare minimum when I am leaving the house. I have worked for years on my EDC items so that I have systems in place for various needs or situations but my normal EDC load is pretty simple and consistent so that all I do when I leave the door is tap my body in the places where all my gear should be sitting or placed, then when comfortable with the knowledge that I haven’t forgotten anything I can walk out the door. You can read more about my personal EDC that I carry most days if you are looking for ideas on what to consider for your Every Day Carry.
Of course what I carry with me changes with the way I am dressed or the place I am going from time to time and that is one of the reasons why I wanted to write this post. I wanted to share some of what I carry for various seasons and wardrobe options and how that changes with the colder weather and give you a way to share what you carry and possibly win something in return.

For my own personal EDC I like to make sure I have the following items with me at all times.
As I said, the place I am going or what I am wearing with dictate what I carry and how I carry my EDC gear. As the weather grows cooler, I modify my EDC to account for different scenarios but mostly because my clothing options allow greater flexibility with what I carry. In the summer, I am wearing shorts and short sleeve thin shirts when I am not working. If I am working, I have pants on. So what changes do I make?
