Everyday Carry (EDC) equipment is part of the dress code for the prepared citizen (along with clean underwear — we’re not animals). Choices in equipment are shaped by training (or lack thereof), occupation, lifestyle, personal tastes and even body type. Although the common goal is to be prepared for any situation, the gear carried by each individual can vary greatly. What may be too much for some is not enough for others. In this installment of Everyday Carry, we take a look at a practical everyday carry setup, which includes everything from an iPhone 5S to the Subcompact Alpha 9mm DA/SA by Sphinx Arms.
