What does everyday carry mean to you? The phrase is thrown around so frequently on the web now that there have been many differing opinions developed.
At one point everyday carry gear were items that you carried every single day. Now this has evolved as all things do. In my mind, EDC gear are items that you carry on you regularly but often get rotated out or in as need be. It does not make sense to always carry the exact same piece of gear day in and day out. Different days require different items and so on. Would you agree?
I carry a knife every day, but not the same knife. I like to switch it up depending on the occasion. Same goes for my small pocket tools. If I am attending a summer pool BBQ I shoot for an aluminum Jurassic Croc since I know every person that sees it is going to want to use it. Plus it's light and comfortable in the pockets.
If I am headed to a cocktail party, which is rare i'll admit, but it does happen. I usually carry something more high end. Either a Fossil Jurassic Croc, a Titanium Croc, or possibly even a Slim. Depends on what pants I am wearing.
Pretty much every random day of the week I carry a Pry Bar with a few beads and possibly a Jurassic Croc slim.
It all depends on the day and my mood. All of these items are part of my Everyday Carry, even though I am not literally carrying them every single day.
How about you? What do you carry and what are your thoughts on the phrase?
