EDC, or everyday carry, is an expansive range of items that can be taken around and used every day. It may include small tools like pocket knives, wallets, pens and pads to write on, flashlights with batteries, even your phone and a water bottle. In effect, EDC tools are defined by the person who carries them; you may already be involved in this concept without even knowing about it. All it means is having the items you need with you daily.

For our latest collection of EDC must-haves (Everyday Carry), we’ve gathered some items that can help with the demands of modern life and unexpected predicaments. From tools to gadgets, every man will benefit from carrying a few extra things in their pockets. Our current guide includes all the essentials for the classy fellow. See the product descriptions below.
