What's in your carry?
What's your story?
This is what I usually carry around as an entrepreneur/freelancer based in Singapore. I have a small selection of each item, so my carry varies depending on my mood and needs on that particular day.
I really enjoy this setup as it’s comprised of quality gear that’s enjoyable to use, sleek enough to fit in an urban city environment, yet tough enough to withstand my occasional outdoor adventures.
I’ve been “into” EDC for a pretty long time, but haven’t really dived into it until a few months ago. In my free time, I enjoy spending my free time diving and hiking, so having quality gear that I can rely on is something I value.
Favorite EDC Tool?
My favorite piece of gear in this carry would definitely be the Sebenza 31. I LOVE this knife, it’s classy enough to go with a suit but also extremely solid and can withstand whatever I throw at it during my outdoor adventures.
What's On Your Gear Radar?
A few custom flashlights, Shirogorov F95R Slim, Bob Terzuola ATCF, 3” Damacore Shamwari... the list is endless! 😅

From across the pond, we chat with Matt (@mattd_edc) who only got into EDC recently by way of boredom and the lockdown.

Read on for the full rundown and find out who in the EDC community Matt really wants to buy a beer for!
