Ready for Anything: An Everyday Carry Exploration

Late last week, whilst looking for some new gear to make my everyday life easier, I happened to come across a site called Everyday Carry. This site allows users to post items they carry with them everyday. While I’ve seen people post articles here and there online, I’ve never seen an entire site dedicated entirely to this concept.

This is a fantastic and useful idea that I can really get behind, so I decided to participate. Over the years I’ve really honed my collection of useful items to get me through a lot of situations, and this could possibly help others find useful gear as well.

My friends know me as the guy who is prepped and ready to deal with anything as it comes (I’d like to think!). Aside from my Bug Out Bag (dedicated 72 hour emergency pack), my everyday tech bag contains enough items for an extensive day at the office, in the field, or travel. I also include little gear in case of sickness and any unplanned emergency situations… And it all fits on my person and in my bag!
