As a bushcrafting enthusiast, Jarek (@drjekyll84) instinctively understood the importance of having the right gear for the right job. That same ethos extended to his choice of items to carry, where every tool has its rightful place and task. Read on to find out more about Jarek’s well-rounded and perfectly matched urban everyday carry.
Favorite EDC Tool:
My favorite is my Olight flashlight. It has a perfect design and the quality is amazing. After a knife, the flashlight is one of the tools I use the most of the time.
When I get out of the car, it’s pitch dark so I have to light up the way home. When you go into some darker rooms you always need a good flashlight to light it up. Whenever people see the Olight, they always ask about it because of its amazing design.
Next On Your Gear Radar:
The next knife I need in my EDC is a Zero Tolerance knife. I really like the quality and design of their knives and the fact that it’s American made. The model I’m after is the 0456 which is made together with Dmitry Sinkevich, of which the design is absolutely outstanding.
