This is version 3 of my vagabonding EDC gear kit for international travel and urban everyday carry. Equipped on my person at all times.
An EDC kit is a constantly evolving, ever-changing set of gear that should be customized for the person’s preferences and situational needs.
Assailant Card //
Recently gifted by a client, this rare “credit card knife” is a custom Marfione version. Made out of a single piece of titanium and edged with carbide. It rests as part of my wallet EDC in one of the credit card slots. A great and convenient “only resort” minimalist blade.
Prada Wallet //
I’ve had this couture (custom) wallet for over 10 years but only recently started using it again. Made from real crocodile leather and stitched according to my specifications from Prada headquarters in Milan. It’s a one-of-a-kind minimal bi-fold wallet.
Lockout Canister //
A pocket-sized polymer container built for battle, adventure or everyday carry of small items from SS Precision. It’s waterproof and tough so I currently put in perishables or delicate items.
Flea LED Light //
A small but relatively powerful 4 bulb flashlight with a variety of attachment capabilities by Blackburn. USB or solar rechargeable with 3 different lighting modes. Originally for cycling but the design allows for a variety of uses like everyday carry.
Dime Tool //
Made by Gerber, this multi-tool is the smallest of its kind but retains the functionality of a full sized one. Has 10 specific tools for a variety of needs great for minimal or lightweight urban EDC. The only thing missing is a screwdriver but the Shard Tool compliments it perfectly.
Troodon Knide //
This was a standard issue Microtech out-the-front automatic knife that has been heavily modified to my specifications. It has literally been directly exploded by an IED bomb of which it still functions smoothly. It has since become my favorite edged tool.
Obstructures Tool //
A primarily pry tool with multi-tool uses. I’ve been EDC’ing these (available in 2 sizes and in titanium or steel) since receiving them. They make great seamless carry tools because of their built-in clips and low profile design.
The most ergonomic, comfortable and minimal “backpack” available. This holster has evolved my EDC gear system to a new level. Wearable at all times regardless of the activity, it’s like adding seamless pockets on your person. The bag to use when you don’t want to use one. Read my review.
ALRT Knife //
Made from TOPS Knives, blades don’t get much simpler than this – yet it works for what I need it for flawlessly. High carbon steel in a monolithic design with a low profile and minimalist sheath. Tough, small and reliable.
Mini GoTubbs //
A couple of Humangear’s smallest containers. I’ve been using these along with their larger versions as part of my EDC and overall vagabonding packing list for years. Very clever and useful for holding anything small. I currently put meds and coins in these.
