Vagabonds are adventurers and always far from “home”, making our gear an exceedingly vital part of our lives. In this case, the gear we carry with us everyday without even thinking about it.

The everyday carry travel + survival keychain kit…

E.D.C. = Every Day Carry + Gear + Tools + Equipment (for) Use in Daily Life + Minor Emergencies + Tactical Situations + Initial Survival

My Personal EDC Kit / Keychain Edition :

FREEkey Keyring - EDC Travel Gear

FREEKEY SYSTEM

Although just a keyring, this is still the most innovative, useful and efficient one ever invented. Made of stainless steel, adding and removing items and other rings just takes a soft press with the thumbs, not a painful pull from the finger nails. The base of this entire #EDC keychain kit.

BUY $7


Shard Gerber Tool - EDC Kit

SHARD KEYCHAIN TOOL

This ingenious minimal multi-tool should be on every EDC kit. Measures just 3 inches in length, made from stainless steel and coated with #titanium nitrate. Obvious tools include; 2 flat drivers, philips head driver, wire stripper, bottle opener and pry bar. Many other possible uses such as a defensive weapon.

BUY $6


PICO eGear LED Flashlight - EDC Travel Gear

PICO ZIPPER FLASHLIGHT

This tiny LED torch from eGear is possibly the best “nano” sized flashlights. Weighing just .2 ounces and 1/5 inches in length. Small but produces a big light of 10 lumens with a strong beam. Powered by easy to buy LR41 batteries which has a life of 15 hours, the bulb, tens of thousands more.

BUY $10


Titanium Peanut Lighter - EDC Travel Gear

Ti PEANUT LIGHTER

At just 1.3 inches and weighing 14 grams, this grade 5 titanium lighter is one of the smallest possible. Reusable by filling the tank and flints. Extremely tough. The most ideal lighter for every day carry when #minimalism is the goal. Stainless steel version is available for just $12 [here].

BUY $30


Utili-Key Took - EDC Travel Gear

UTILI-KEY TOOL

It makes sense to have these Swiss+Tech “keys” on this EDC keychain kit as at first glance, they really do just look like keys. Its actually a 6-in-1 multi-function tool; straight blade #knife, 3 screwdrivers, bottle opener and serrated blade. Made from polished stainless steel. I’ve never had an issue passing through #airport security.

BUY $8


Ti2 Sentinel Caceh - EDC Travel Gear

SENTINEL S4S CACHE

Flawless craftsmanship went into designing and producing these titanium caches. The best capsule on the market. I put a mini #survival kit in these but also good for pills, cash, matches etc. Measures 0.5″ x 2.75″. Completely waterproof, probably bombproof and opens up from both ends for easy access.

BUY $30


CASHSTASH CAPSULE - EDC TRAVEL GEAR

CASHSTASH CAPSULE

A cheaper version of the premium Sentinel capsule, these ones from True Utility are instead made from aircraft grade aluminum, not titanium. But these still hold up quite nice and great for a single bill, #passport copy or a few medicinal pills. Measures 1.75″ in length and waterproof.

BUY $9


LACIE KEY USB FLASH DRIVE - EDC TRAVEL KIT

PETITEKEY USB FLASH DRIVE

There is no better USB stick to add to an EDC keychain kit than a key and as tough as it should be. Scratch resistant connectors and waterproof up to 100 meters. Great for encrypted copies of your passport, credit card numbers, photos or anything else important and digital. Available in 8, 16 and 32 GB.

BUY $15+


GDC ZIP BLADE - EDC TRAVEL KIT

GDC ZIP BLADE

The second knife on this EDC kit, but the only dedicated #knife. This is one of the smallest true #knives you can get. The blade is only .68 inches and 1.7 inches when closed. This nano knife is well made with a frame lock and “zip” clip for easy access. Perfect for what it was intended, a utility knife on the go.

BUY $7+


SCIXOrs Scissors - EDC Travel Kit

SCIXORS MINI SCISSORS

These #airplane safe scissors are about as small as they get. Made from stainless steel and measures 2.2″ x 0.5″. The quick release clip design is perfect for adding to this EDC travel kit. While a knife is useful, sometimes a scissor is better fit for the job.

BUY $9+


This EDC kit is in no way comprehensive and no list can be as each kit will vary greatly from person to person. I use this kit as a base and each item is removed, exchanged or added constantly.

Make your own everyday carry keychain kit using this as a guideline.

    I don’t actually carry all of these on my person all the time, some of the items are removed for a lighter load or the entire EDC keychain kit is placed in my daypack- depending on the plan for the day.

  2. Teddy L

    Man you have some clever ways to pack gear while you travel. Anyways, gonna copy this EDC keychain from ya! I already have most of those tools.

  3. JnaDna

    That’s one fully equipped EDC keychain kit. Maybe too much stuff for on person carry but awesome for backpacks.
