Everyday Carry Defined:
Everyday carry (EDC) or every day carry are items that are consistently carried on person everyday. The main reasons for having EDC are utility and preparedness; to help individuals overcome simple everyday problems, and to prepare someone for unexpected and possibly dangerous situations.
Some of the most common EDC items are knives, flashlights, multitools, wallets, smartphones, watches, key rings, notebooks and pens .
While often distributed among pockets in everyday clothing, carry options are frequently expanded by the addition of clothing accessories like a fanny pack, purse, small day pack, bracelets, or even footwear like long boots or a vest with pockets. Though, how EDC items are stored depends on the purpose and intentions of EDC items. For example, if one is worried about being abducted and collects items to assist an escape, they may store items in more discreet locations
