    Default The Everyday Carry (EDC) Thread

    Guys & Gals,

    Been really getting into everyday carry (EDC) gear recently (amazon.ca is mostly to blame for this) and I wanted to create a thread where we can all show off our gear and possibly talk a bit about it all.

    I'll start it off with an EDC knife that I recently purchased and have since kept on me as in my line of work these can come in quite handy.

    It's the Kershaw Cryo II in Blackwash finish. Primarily picked this up because it had decent reviews and I liked the look and the idea that it'll wear over time for a more rugged personalized appearance. The knife itself is quite heavy for an EDC but I like that in this case because it feels more heavy duty and solid. It is very sharp and has no issues cutting through anything I need it to.

    ***disclaimer: I will be posting up quite a few knives I own and I do not carry a knife with the intention of self-defense in anyway whatsoever. Tool purposes only***





    Sunglasses are Prada polarized and prescription glasses and are my go to pair, mainly because the help me see

    Similar to SomeGuy, I also carry a Fenix PD35 tactical flashlight, but the newer version which boasts 1000 lumens vs 900 from the older model. Not worth upgrading if you have the previous model.

    Another little flashlight I've had for quite some time now is by X-Glow

    More than reasonable 80 lumen output all from a single AA battery. Tactical on/off switch is nice as the entire flashlight fits in the palm of your hand. Took it to a cottage and lost it for 2 years but wife just recently found it for me.





    And for size reference

    I'm a bit of a flashlight whore so although you really wouldn't consider these next 2 flashlights as EDC they are functional for my work and I wanted to post them up

    First up was a flashlight I always wanted since the time I was a poor student. Picked one up once I got a real job and that was the Inova T4 rechargeable tactical flashlight. I think this thing maxes out around 225 lumens which is decently bright but has a good throw which is why I like it at work.





    Next up is a "thrower" flashlight which is the Olight M2X-UT Javelot which can project 1020 lumens almost 1km. It is still quite small and easy to handle but you can't just put it in your pocket

    The Ontario RAT II was a very recent purchase and is great because of it's small size. You don't feel it in your pocket but yet is more than capable when needed. You can't pick them up here as cheap as in the States, but it's like that with most things

    What's a good flash light to keep in my truck all year?

    I think anything that is constantly left in the cold will have trouble retaining the charge to be honest. The Inova T4 flashlight I have holds a decent charge and because the flashlight itself is rechargeable, it can also be charged from the car if needed

    One that runs off a AA battery is good as well since those can be found at any store or gas station

    Get a small key chain one?

    I use a Thrunite Ti3. It uses a AAA battery and has a ridiculous amount of light, for it's size.

    I use this thing called an iPhone by Apple as a flashlight. It has a built in flashlight and built in phone too. Another plus is you can access the internet for basic survival skills like building a fire or finding sources of water (i.e. Tim Hortons). But seriously, the cell phone is a pretty good EDC instead of a small flashlight on a keychain flashlight.

    Except your battery won't even last 24 hours...I can run my PD35 for days on low output.

    Can you guys suggest something similar to the Fenix PD 35's features, but that is absolutely waterproof. Looking to stay under $100 shipped if I can help it. Something that floats is a bonus but not a must.

    There are a couple of cool ones:

    Pelican stealthlite: submersible to 500 ft. AA batteries, does not float
    https://www.amazon.com/Pelican-Flash.../dp/B007TTOH4A

    EternaLite ergomarine: floats, great for boats, waterproof, not shaped like the pd35

    No pic

    But mine are

    -iPhone
    -wallet
    -keys
    -watch

    Simple.

    But truck has
    -generic multi-tool
    -knife 4" blade
    -small battery-less flashlight
    -matches
    -blanket
    -golf balls
    -sock



    4" blade because was told anything larger is considered a weapon.

    The flashlight has a pull chord - but not very bright and cord is starting to look sketch

    Golf balls in a sock make an excellent teeth-knocker-outer, without looking too suspicious

    Columbia River Knife and Tool (CRKT) M16-13M in green with black finished blade

    This model has the auto-lock mechanism. This particular knife will flip open quite easily with your index finger after some adjustments but you cannot close this knife one handed. I pretty much like this knife because I like the look.





    The clip is not able to be relocated but that doesn't bother me

    I like the look of that knife. I actually like knives that have that serrated part near the handle. I have one similar but smaller. Don't carry it around at work doe.

    This is going to sound funny coming from me, but get this set (wait for it to be on sale):

    http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/ma...9259p.html#srp

    I have one in my Mazda and it's the perfect self contained kit...pliers, screw drivers, metric and sae sockets, hammer...you can do pretty much any odd job with it but it remains just one small case.

    Stuff that I carry with me.

    I have my wallet, phone, keys and a Swiss Army Knife (Rucksack).

    Good enough for any cutting needs that I have (Opening parts, cutting hose, wires) and small enough with my wallet that I hardly notice it's there anymore. Good proof of that is I accidentally tried to take it with me to Miami once, that didn't work out so well.

    As an EDC pouch, I purchased and carry with me the Maxpedition in green. Currently have 2 knives in there, a tactical pen, Fenix PD35 flashlight, lip balm, a compass (because why not...) and miscellaneous clips, etc.

    The case is small and rugged and easy to grab and just go
