I recently purchased a Cold Steel Bushman, with the *new* Secure-Ex sheath and included ferrocerium fire steel. I've always been interested in the Bushman, I really like the idea of a minimalist survival knife that can be modified and tweaked to suit the user. The Bushman is a very simple ...Continue reading
The Sunwayman R01A is an inexpensive alternative to the legendary Fenix E01 - it uses a single AAA, is around 10 lumens, is a twisty on/off, and uses the same Nichia 5mm LED emitter as the Fenix E01, with very similar battery life. The Sunwayman version is *nearly* as good ...Continue reading

EDC (Every Day Carry) is something that many people do without even thinking about it - but with a little thought and planning, it can become an important way to ensure your safety and survival in the event of an accident or emergency. An EDC bag or organizer is basically a collection of things that you take with you every time you walk out the door. Most people either end up carrying things they don't need, or forgetting to take things they will need. This is where an EDC list comes in handy. A simple way to make your own EDC list is to carry a pen and paper with you for a week, and every time you need something you don't have with you, write it down. This of course only gives you the things you need, not the things you MIGHT need. Check out our list at the bottom of the page for a few items you may want to include on your own personal EDC list.
This EDC list also includes items that may be more suitable for a Bug Out Bag than EDC.
It's up to you to determine which items you need to carry in your EDC bag, and which items should be stored in your Bug Out Bag.
