Since I just wrapped up the RIDGE Wallet review, I wanted to take a brief moment to show off and talk about my normal EDC. Keep in mind, this is my bare minimum EDC. I normally carry a backpack with me just about everywhere I go with all kinds of essentials. I will go into that another day 🙂
Alright guys, this is my absolute bare minimum.
• Iphone 5s with Lunatik’s Taktik Extreme Case (Right)
• Kershaw Chive (EDC knife varies from day to day)
• The Ridge Wallet (Gunmetal Aluminum with money clip)
• Revision Military Hellfly Ballistic Sunglasses (Flame Mirror Lenses)
• All the keys I will need that day with a paracord Key fob (Who knows when you may need it)
It is quite obvious why I listed my phone on my EDC list. It is obviously the item that I use the most and that is the most useful to me on a daily basis. It is how I keep in contact with people for work and in my social life. But lets talk about what I use to protect my phone for a moment. I picked up the Lunatik Taktik Extreme as my phone case only because it is extremely water resistant, it has a hardened glass screen protector and not to mention that it is very well designed!
This just happens to be what I was carrying today. I do have a fairly large pocket knife collection and I like to change it up quite often. The Chive is small enough that I sometimes forget that I have it in my pocket but I always remember it when I need it.
The Ridge Wallet
The newest addition to my EDC and I simply love it. If you have not had the chance to read the review, you can find it here.
Revision Military Hellfly
Another one of my favorites. I carry these mostly in the summer but they do come handy in the winter. They are ballistic rated so they make a great must have if you are a motorcycle rider like me and ride with your visor up. They also are no slouch when it comes to blocking UV-A, UV-B and UV-C rays.
Paracord Key Fob
I get a lot of questions as to why I carry this on my key ring. My answer is always the tried and true “It is better to have it and not need it than it is to need it and not have it”. I have one of these fobs on every single set of keys that I have. They have been proven useful to me time and again.
If you want to show off your EDC, post them in the comments! I would love to see them.
