From Indiana, by way of New York, we talk to Bart (@bugoutbart). As an IT technician (an ex-Marine), Bart puts his EDC to good use – from prying apart laptops to popping open a cold beverage. Read on for the full rig rundown, and find out more all about Bart's color-coordinated carry!
My name is Bart and I live in Indiana and work as an IT technician, but I grew up in the Adirondack Park in upstate New York.
I love the woods, mountains and being in nature. started carrying a pocket knife at a young age because I was always in the woods. I carried daily in my career as a United States Marine until I retired and started working in IT.
In last 5 or 6 years I have really started to color coordinate my carry as I was tired of the black or live drag life and wanted my gear to pop.
I like EDC gear, shooting, craft beer, grilling and traveling to explore new areas of nature and finding waterfalls.
Favorite EDC tool:
Definitely my Pacific Prybar. I use it all the time for prying apart laptops, removing LCD's, opening boxes and cold beverages. This is one of my favorite pieces of EDC gear because it has so many uses and it saves my blade.
What's on my gear radar:
I am always on the look out for new and colorful gear. Hoping for a lime green Spyderco PM3 Lightweight.
