A blacked out street-civilian tactical everyday carry of prime essentials (e.g., knife, flashlight, pen, case) minimalist kit for urban scenarios.
New York, USA
This Guardian Tactical tool has been a part of my permanent vagabonding packing list and my de facto EDC knife since I acquired it nearly 4 years ago. There is no other knife I’ve used or equipped nearly as much in that time.
-Available for about $275
TMT L1 Flashlight
For many years the Dark Energy 214A was my go-to compact tactical torch for vagabonding EDC until I was recently gifted this new 511 flashlight. While much testing is needed, first impressions are looking good.
The powerful 212 lumens beam is outstanding but it’s the speed and fluidity of operating it that makes this the fastest “gun” in the west – thanks to the ingeniously designed tail cap switch.
-Available for about $75
Life Capsule Omega
Having been a part of my packing list since day one, these Triple Aught Design capsule containers have become indispensable for mobile organization and specialized kits. Typically for the purpose of single-use or emergency scenarios.
I instinctively EDC at least one of these for most locales and situations. The contents vary from meds to SERE to survival to money.
-Available for about $95
In regards to both its writing and defensive capabilities, in my opinion, it’s the best overall tactical pen available. Furthermore, the non-menacing design and subdued handsome style makes it permissible for carry in any environment.
-Available for about $100
