The everyday carry are those items you always have with you — keys, wallet, phone — and anything you cart from, say, home to office during the week, such as pens, a laptop, notebook, etc. When people try to design their EDC, it is usually with a view to minimizing “stuff” while maximizing utility or preparing for possible emergency situations. In my case, I’m trying stop myself from carting every damn thing I own.

Essentials

  • Minimalist wallet with bank cards, ID and access cards, and multitool
  • Orbitkey keyring
  • Car keys
  • Oneplus Five

I don’t always wear a watch, but I do like them for some reason.
