Maxpedition Jumbo VersipackWhat Is An Everyday Carry Bag

An EDC, (everyday carry) is exactly that, a bag you carry with you where ever you go on a daily basis.  The bag shown here is made by Maxpedition and comes in a ton of colors including tactical black or Army green.  I chose a color that would blend in more in an urban everyday environment. This way you can go about your day without drawing attention to the fact that you are carrying around survival gear.  The bag should hold and organize your equipment but still be small enough to keep on you through out your daily routine.  This is not your ultimate survival bag but it should be sufficient enough to get you through until you get to your “Get Home Bag” or “Bug out Bag”.

Suggested EDC Contents:

Maxpedition Fatty Pocket OrganizerThis is the Maxpedition Fatty Pocket Organizer.  This is a great item to have in your EDC, Bug out bag, or your Get Home Bag to help organize your vital tools and essential equipment. I have one in each of my bags, so no matter what happens I have multiples of every essential tool.  Lets say you leave your bag in your office and something happens and your forced to head home without returning to your office, it would be nice to know that you have the same gear stored in your get home bag in your car.  Build one and see where you want to go from there.  

I recommend that you change or tweak each pocket organizer slightly due to the bag its in.  For example, in my EDC and Get Home bag I might put some tools in there that are better suited in Urban environments like bump keys, or a mini hack saw to cut metals etc. Where as, my bug out bag, might be more heavily geared towards remote survival needs and more long-term functionality in the outdoors.  Again all of this depends on what it is you are preparing for and or the environment you live in on a daily basis.
