EDC has been one of those things that has caught on strong lately. It’s been as much fad as it has been functional. The word EDC doesn’t really define what us preppers are after. It merely refers to the things that you carry everyday. We all have an EDC. Yours might be phone, keys and wallet. There isn’t a lot going on in an EDC like that. What the term has done has focused our minds on what we carry out of the home each day and how it helps us get back home safe.
There are interesting theories out there, about EDC. I am a fan of the tiered approach to an EDC. This states that your EDC should get you to your vehicle which contains your get-home bag. Your get-home bag should be equipped to get you home under most circumstances.
