Many years ago, people would never have considered walking outside of their homes without carrying survival items with them, just in case. Today a number of people still carry an EDC. In case you don’t already know, “EDC” stands for Every Day Carry system. An EDC is not just for the outdoors. Even people from urban walks of life carry versions of these on their bodies, carry them in their purses / backpacks / briefcases or keep them in their vehicles. Interestingly, Altoids tins are commonly used as containers for small EDC’s. There are many different versions of the Altoids tin survival kit. Below is just one of them. You can find many more EDC ideas online and elsewhere.
