Everyday Prepping: A Basic Guide to EDC Bags

It’s true what they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Life often moves quickly which requires us to react quickly. Whether you’re taking a hike through the woods, manning an army of toddlers, or gone fishing at your favorite spot, an Everyday Carry (EDC) bag can truly be a lifesaver.

The ideal EDC is compact and well organized so you can get to your necessities at a moment’s notice. There are a number of different styles out there, so you can choose one that fits comfortably and best suits your needs. At Arc-Defense, we offer two style bags for your convenience. Our Rugged Recon EDC Pack features a single strap design that allows for a snug fit. Alternatively, the Premium EDC Tactical Pack can be worn as a crossbody and allows for heavy duty prepping. Each bag offers up a sturdy design and adjustable straps so you can have the support and secure fit that you need.

Now, don’t confuse an EDC with your (BOB) bug out bag. These bags aren’t intended to be filled to the brim with solutions or tools for every possible circumstance. Stick with the necessities and, if possible, focus on including lightweight items.

Though a well-stocked EDC will certainly come in handy in the event of an emergency, there are other practical applications simply to ensure you keep your necessities at hand. These bags are great for anything from holding your concealed carry to keeping fresh diapers stocked on-the-go as a manly diaper bag to keeping snacks, electronics, and your favorite multi-tool safe from the elements during a camping or hiking trip. You may even choose to have more than one to cover your different needs (i.e. a work bag, range bag).

We’re rarely granted the ability to see into the future so it’s important to be prepared for whatever life throws your way. It may seem like life is two steps ahead at times, with your EDC bag, you won’t be far behind.
