There’s a pretty solid chance that you’ll not have to turn to your everyday carry in a survival situation – that is, unless your daily life takes you far from civilization. Still, a major tenet of EDC is preparedness. And that doesn’t just mean being capable of handling normal life, but being ready for contingencies, as well. Of course, we don’t expect everyone to haul around a bug-out bag everywhere they go. Still, there’s a few things you can do to give you the best chance should stuff hit the fan. One such thing is carrying pocketable gear that can serve you in the day-to-day, but won’t fail in an emergency. And that’s why we put together this week’s pocket dump – to illustrate handsome and functional everyday carry gear that will continue to serve you in the worst of situations.
