While city slickers might opt for an everyday carry loadout that puts style before substance, those of us who spend a good deal of our time off-the-beaten-path know that our EDC needs to be a bit more robust and survival-focused. And if you’re the type to spend more time around a campfire than under a street light, then this particular pocket dump was made just for you. Still sticking to the mantra that this gear needs to be as useful as possible while remaining uncumbersome, the following collection is perfect for backcountry bushcrafters without being too bold or brash to carry on a day in town.

5.11 Tactical EDC PL 2AAA Flashlight

Packing an output of 107 lumens — more than enough to illuminate your path in the blackest of nights — the 5.11 Tactical EDC PL flashlight runs on just two AAA batteries, a two-meter impact-resistance rating, IPX4 water-resistance, a durable aerospace-grade aluminum body, and a 4-hour 20-minute runtime.

Purchase: $25

Nordic Pocket Saw

With a format and size that’s literally small enough to stash in your blue jeans, the Nordic Pocket Saw might just be the handiest wood-cutting tool around. Without the bulk of a traditional saw, it boasts high-carbon steel teeth, sturdy nylon handles, and has won a slew of awards proving its value.

Purchase: $49

Opinel No. 12 Explore Survival Knife

Calling Opinel’s No. 12 Explore a “survival knife” probably isn’t giving it enough credit, as — alongside its Sandvik steel blade and highly durable handle — it also hides away a fire starter, cutting hook, and 110-decibel survival whistle.

Purchase: $49

Bellroy All-Conditions Essentials Pocket

Bellroy’s All-Conditions Essentials Pocket has enough space to fit your passport, iPhone, charging cables, cash, coins, documents, and more. And while that’s what you’d expect from a travel wallet, it also has a water-resistant leather construction alongside a water-resistant zipper to keep everything inside safe and dry on all your adventures.

Purchase: $140
