Every single person’s experience on this planet is unique. And that means, no matter how similar two people might seem on a surface level (take identical twins, for example), their needs, wants, desires, and abilities are unique. Just as no two people are exactly alike, no two everyday carry loadouts should be, either. And that’s what makes putting together purpose-driven loadouts so interesting — because there are as many potential loadouts as there are people on this planet. In fact, because each day calls for different potential gear, every individual could theoretically have dozens of appropriate EDC kits. For instance, a person that works in the city by day might want something a bit sleeker and more urban-friendly. However, if they head out to the wetlands on waterfowl hunting trips over their weekends, a loadout like the one you see here — complete with a duck call — might be more desirable and certainly more well-suited to such an adventure.

It’s crafted from a rugged canvas; boasts six card slots, a clear ID sleeve, two smaller pockets, and a large bill slot. It doesn’t break any molds, but it really doesn’t have to.
