Now, let’s move forward and get started on our best Everyday Carry (EDC) Gear ideas.
Men’s Everyday Carry Gear Suggestions
1) A Handy and Sharp Knife: Victorinox Cadet
A knife is the most important part of anyone's everyday carry, because of all the versatility it adds to your life. That's why it comes first on the list.
A small, functional pocketknife is the holy grail of EDC. A knife is useful in almost any situation. Whether you need to cut yourself free in an emergency or merely cut yourself a piece of pie, you’ll be surprised at how often you whip your knife out (safely, of course).
Common EDC tasks for a knife: opens packages | cuts threads or ropes | maintenance of tools or other everyday items | food prep | an emergency tool | self defense

3) A Decent and Durable Watch: Depends on Your Personal Style.
A quality watch is imperative for your EDC kit though we might not rely on it to tell us the time, but a decent watch can provide you with more than that.
Having a durable, waterproof watch can be a valuable tool to provide you with various additional functions that you may need at any given moment. If you’re an outdoor guy, a watch with a built-in compass could undoubtedly save your life in a geographical crisis. And nowadays, smartwatches have become very popular because they have more functions than just telling time.
Apple Watch, for example, is a recorder of your physiological state and your daily life. You can also connect it with your iPhone to send messages and answer phone calls. If you're using an Apple Watch, don’t forget to “dress up” it with a Retro watch band and protect it with an aramid fiber watch case.

Without a doubt, lighting up a cigarette and emergency use in camping are the most common cases in which a lighter can show its value. Yet, it can still help with illumination when your phone or your flashlight is powered down. Besides, sterilizing a needle with a lighter to get a nasty splinter out from under your skin could be the last option for you when there aren't other options within your grasp.
