The Best Everyday Carry of 2016

Published By




We brought forth to thee many tidings of good gear and featured reading material, but none stole the spotlight in 2016 quite like our weekly selection of EDC gear.

We started featuring our own versions of everyday carry more than three years ago — see our very first one from 2013 here. Many of you loved the idea, some of you hated it (thanks for the emails and messages) and some of you guys even contributed ideas of your own that found their way onto the site. We can’t thank you enough. Because every guy could use just a bit more gear in his pockets, here are our picks for the best gear from 2016 to satisfy your everyday carry needs.
