No matter what we are up to on a daily basis, we all love to carry our knives and EDC gear with us! Some people like a minimalist set up while others prefer a comprehensive kit, either way having the right organization can make carrying your gear a lot easier.

Today we are looking at just a few of our favorite options out there for organizing and carrying your EDC essentials on a daily basis! 

For the Comprehensive Kit: The Tuff Possum Shackleton EDC Satchel 

The Shackleton EDC Satchel is a shoulder/cross body bag with a lot of options! While it is big enough and rugged enough to accommodate a nice sized woods kit, it has a simple and relatively compact design that is not out of place in an office, school, or any other urban environment. The bag itself is 12 inches wide, 9 inches tall, and 4 inches deep.

The exterior has two slim pockets on either side and the main flap is secured with a large cobra style buckle. The interior has two large pockets and a loop and laser cut back wall so that either Velcro or Molle accessories can be attached.

Tuff Possum offers a few add-on accessories including small Velcro backed Skittles Pouches, a First Aid Pouch, and my personal favorite the Organizer Panel which adds a few additional small pockets for gear organization and a large zipper compartment.

The Shackleton EDC Satchel is made from high grade Cordura nylon and is available in typical outdoors colors like OD Green and Coyote Brown, there is also a Wolf Gray option for those who want a more discreet color.

For a Substantial Kit in a more Compact Package: Carry Commission Bum Bag XL

The Carry Commission Bum Bag XL, made by Blue Ridge Overland Gear, is an ideal choice for someone who carries a larger EDC kit, and wants to keep it in a compact platform with multiple carry options.

This bag is made from nylon with a leather Carry Commission patch and a loop field in the front for all your favorite patches. The Bum Bag XL is 8.5 inches long, 6 inches tall, and 2.5 inches deep. It can be carried as a traditional fanny back or as a cross body sling on your chest or back. The bag is secured by top quality YKK zippers to ensure long life. The Interior has both loop walls and laser cut Molle so that optional interior organization accessories can be added.

These are available in a combination of Ranger Green and Coyote Brown giving it a classy yet rugged aesthetic! If you're looking for something slightly more compact in the same form factor there is also a standard bum bag option in the same colorway that measures 7 inches wide, 5 inches tall, and 2 inches deep.

For a Minimalist Pocket Kit or Add on Pouch: Badger Claw Outfitters Clipper

The Badger Claw Clipper is a compact pouch that is ideal for storing your small EDC items in your pocket or adding some more organization to a larger bag or pouch. These single compartment pouches are 3 inches tall by 4.5 inches long with a single high quality YKK zipper in the middle of the pouch.

Each end of the pouch has a small loop that can be used to attach to other gear via D-Ring clips or anything else you might like to use. Badger Claw Outfitters makes the Clipper in either nylon or waxed canvas and offers a variety of greens and browns as well as a neutral black.

What is truly great about the clipper is versatility, these can be used as a one off pocket storage or as a system of pouches to organize all your small items in larger bags.
