Urban EDC Backpack


The following video is of my “updated” Urban EDC Backpack. This is the backpack that I like to carry with me when I got to work, travel out of town or keep in the car when I run errands. I have refined it over the last year and a half, and I feel that it gives me a wide range of functionality for my every day needs living in the city. The contents of this backpack by no means meant to help me survive in the wild, but more for my day to day life in a normal working, urban environment. Everyone’s EDC is tailor made for their own personal needs, and mine is no different. This video showcases the items that I am currently carrying and it not meant as any sort of recommendation to you, but just an outline of my personal preferences.


Everyday carry (EDC) or Every Day Carry refers to a small collection of tools, equipment and supplies that are carried on a daily basis to assist in tackling situations ranging from the mundane to the disastrous. The term EDC also refers to the philosophy or spirit of ‘preparedness’ that goes along with the selection and carrying of these items. Implicit in the term is the sense that an EDC is an individual’s personal selection of equipment, arrived at after deliberation, rather than a standardized kit.

In an effort to keep my Urban EDC Backpack organized, I use individual compartments for various categories that I find to be useful. Each compartment is color coded with an ID tag on the compartment container. The colors of the compartment ID’s are reflected in the compartment listings in this document. The colors used are more for others to use to easily identify the compartments, in the case that I am unable to access my backpack. For example, if I was injured or was trying to describe to someone from a distance on what compartment I need, I could tell them to get the “yellow” first aid compartment out of my backpack.
