Every Day Carry
What will you carry every day? What is a realistic EDC?
There are all sorts of lists of things for EDC, and most of them list some very wise and useful items. But if you were to carry everything that might be useful, most likely you would need a wheelbarrow.
Here is a minimal list:
Some folding money
Sunglasses -- plastic frames, plastic lenses, polarized
Spare shoelaces or bootlaces
A small flashlight or two
A Swiss Army Knife, or inexpensive knockoff of one
