10 Everyday Carry Essentials That’ll Make People Ask ‘Where Did You Get That?’


EDC Where

Today’s collection of everyday carry items will get noticed. And when things get noticed, questions are sure to follow.

People will ask about your pocket knife. The Freescape Folding Sheath Knife from Gerber features a safety that allows the user to lock the knife closed when not in use, keeping little fingers from harm and also functioning as a secondary lock to keep the blade open for safe operation.

Family will comment on your sneakers. From walking the slopes of Diamond Head at dawn to sunset swims, the people of Hawai‘i pride themselves on their active lifestyle. Oluki created the sporty, lightweight ʻĀlapa Li sneaker to mirror that sentiment.

Coworkers will fire off questions about your water bottle. Whatever beverage of choice you might have, it should taste perfect every time. And while reusable aluminum or glass canteens are great for the environment, they often leave a metallic or “funky” taste and smell after but a few uses. But not with the Mover canteen from Purist Collective.

Here are ten EDC items to add to your arsenal that people are sure to comment on, covet and ogle over.
