I am in the reserves as well as a police officer and father, all of these items are used on a daily basis in one way or another. I might not always carry the same exact setup but I do always have one of each of these items. You know, the basics like knife multi-tool pen and flashlight.
I would say the Bird of Pry takes most of the beating everyday. After all, that's what it's for. I just picked up the Dango Wallet fairly recently so I'm still testing that out. It's a little bulkier than I'm used to…
Last week, we were able to catch up with Zac from Blade HQ and do an impromptu pocket dump. While this wasn’t his typical carry, it was awesome to get peek inside the pockets of the man himself, Zac Whitmore.
Built on the same technology as its existing camp stoves, the FirePit can burn either wood or charcoal and has 51 air jets to inject the fire with oxygen. This not only makes the temperature throughout the burn chamber more uniform, it helps reduce smoke. It has a built-in 10,400 mAh battery that will last up to 24 hours and can be recharged via USB or a solar cover that is sold separately ($60).
The James Brands makes some of the prettiest gear on the market. Their designs are unique, the quality is top notch, and the materials are some of the best available.

It was just last month we were looking at a brand new tail switch flashlight from Olight, the I3T EOS. Now there's another model on the horizon. Also a tail switch light, the M1T Raider is the big brother to the I3T.
I'm a recent utility blade convert. They're super compact and lightweight, low maintenance, and come with very few disadvantages. Plus, you never have to worry about sharpening the blade -- when one dulls, toss it and pop in another. Honestly, it makes perfect sense for everyday carry, which is why I'm happy to see more love for utility blades throughout the community as a whole.
The brains over at Big Idea Design make some of the best EDC gear around with truly novel designs and, usually, out of some of the nicest materials. (Titanium. I'm talking about Titanium.

It was just a few weeks ago that the Osprey Parsec Daypack dropped to just $58, down from its typical $90 sticker price. Today, however, the price is back down. But this time it's even lower at just $56. That's 38% off.
Not every great pocket dumps have to be complicated with insanely expensive gear. Sometimes all it takes is a nice arrangement and a skillful photo. This week, I wanted to showcase some of the best pictures submitted to the EDC Weekly this month. They just so happen to also have some pretty sweet gear in to, as well.
It's hard not to have a soft spot for brass. Nothing patinas and still looks classy as hell quite like it. The good news? Everyday carry gear in brass is in abundance. Everything from pens and watches to pry bars and flashlights, brass is a crowd favorite material.

Once you start carrying a pry bar in your EDC, you'll never go back.

One of the most recognizable pocket tools and pry bars around today is the Griffin Pocket Tool.
