The EDC TOOL KIT That Lives in My Backpack 2024 Update

🛠️ The Perfect EDC Toolkit: A Comprehensive Guide

Are you tired of carrying around a bulky and inefficient toolkit? Look no further than this guide to creating the perfect EDC (Everyday Carry) toolkit. After years of trial and error, we’ve finally figured out the ultimate combination of tools to keep on hand for any situation. In this guide, we’ll take a look at the tools we’ve chosen and why they made the cut.

🎒 The Pouch

Before we dive into the tools themselves, let’s talk about the pouch that will hold them all. We recommend the Blue Ridge Overland Gear collaborative pouch, available in our colorway through Carry Commission. This pouch offers ample storage space and a hook and loop backing for easy attachment to your backpack or belt.

🔧 The Tools

Zip Ties and Alcohol Wipes

Starting with the basics, we recommend keeping a stash of zip ties and alcohol wipes in the back zipper pouch of your EDC pouch. Zip ties are a versatile tool for securing items together, while alcohol wipes can be used for cleaning knives or sanitizing small wounds.

Leatherman Ratchet Driver and Bit Kit

For more heavy-duty tasks, we recommend the Leatherman Ratchet Driver and Bit Kit. This kit includes a ratchet driver and a full bit kit, which can be used with the Leatherman multitool. We also recommend the Fix It Stick, which includes a complete bit kit with torques, hex bits, Phillips, and flathead screwdrivers.

Klein Electrician Scissors

For cutting through wires and other tough materials, we recommend the Klein Electrician Scissors. These scissors are incredibly durable and include notches for stripping wires.

Knipex Pliers Wrench

For nuts and bolts, we recommend the Knipex Pliers Wrench. These pliers are specifically designed for this purpose and work exceptionally well.

Bushcraft Kelo Food FID

For poking and prodding, we recommend the Bushcraft Kelo Food FID. This tool can be used to poke food or scrape materials.

Mechanical Pencil

For marking on surfaces that a pen won’t work on, we recommend a mechanical pencil. We like the Penco Mechanical Pencil for its compact size and durability.

Work Sharp Benchmade Collaboration

For sharpening your knives on the go, we recommend the Work Sharp Benchmade Collaboration. This tool includes a strop and a ceramic rod for touching up your blade.

Tough Possum Entry Kit

For those times when you need to pick a lock, we recommend the Tough Possum Entry Kit. This kit includes all the tools you need to get the job done.

Other Odds and Ends

Finally, we recommend keeping a few odds and ends in a Tough Possum Pouch. This can include a tape measure, tweezers, a slim lighter, duct tape, and a Hero Clip for easy attachment to your gear.
