Everyday Carry (EDC)
Is a collection of useful items that consistently carried on a person everyday. The main reasons for having EDC are utility and preparedness; to help individuals overcome simple everyday problems, and to prepare someone for unexpected and possibly dangerous situations.
Some of the most common EDC items are knives, flashlights, multitools, wallets, smartphones, watches, key rings, notebooks, firearms and pens. – Thank you Wikipedia
So to carry your everyday carry, pockets is the obvious answer. Although when increasing capacity you need to have something to carry your items. That’s when bags, organizers, handbags and other accessories start to get involved. So then that accessory also becomes an EDC item.

There are some awesome everyday items out there. They all make great companions for there own situations. Although if we had to consider the widest possible situations we have to make the list shorter.
Anything that needs power, can’t get wet or needs a specific circumstance to be useful, is out.
Tools are great and all, but what happens when you’re cold.
Bottles also vital but not always essential if you got a waterfall…
I can keep leaning this to show the Hammbag is the greatest companion, however you know it is. Please prove me wrong in the comments.
