Everyday Carry: New Year

Last year was rough. We don’t think there’s anyone out there that would deny that. But, just as every cloud has a silver lining, there is a bright side to the disaster that was 2020: there’s nowhere to go but up. For most folks living today, last year was one heartbreaking challenge after another with seemingly no end in sight. And while it would be easy to wallow in that, we’d prefer to take a different route. Rather than dwelling, we’re ready to refocus, pick up where we left off, and get right back to achieving those things we had to put on the back burner — and we encourage everyone to do the same. That could be as simple as coming up with ideas to revamp your everyday carry loadout, which is the goal of this particular pocket dump, or you could shoot for the moon — the choice is yours. Whatever you do, just remember that this ending is also a beginning, and where that road leads is entirely up to you.
