About Us

Our Story

So what's this whole everyday carry (EDC) thing that everyone is talking about? Well, quite simply, everyday carry represents the items each of us carry on a daily basis. You know... keys, phone, wallet, pen, notepad, pocket knife, flashlight, and anything else we might need for the day. Believe it or not, you probably already have an EDC without even knowing it!

Now, your daily carry may evolve over time especially in different scenarios but what won't change is what each item represents to each of us personally. That rare, one-of-a-kind multi-tool from a highly regarded knife maker that you scored at a show; the beautiful golden patina on your leather wallet from the sweat and oils of your hand; or that bracelet your sweetheart gave you for your birthday... your EDC will change over time but that's the best part! It's fun to discover unique products from up and coming makers, add them to your EDC rotation, and express your personality through the items you carry.

Now, traditionally, the concept of EDC only pertains to self-defense and survival gear in the wilderness. While we love the outdoors, we wanted to put a bit of an urban, refined twist to this concept, highlighting products that are both aesthetically pleasing and built to last. Thus, blurring the line between refined and rugged became our sweet spot and Urban EDC Supply was born.

Our Mission

Our mission is to serve our EDC community with the best possible experience for discovering new talented makers, and the gear they proudly design and build.

We have a very high standard when it comes to the designers and makers with whom we collaborate. Many of the goods in our shop are handcrafted in small batches by talented artisans using the highest quality materials. We are strong believers in buying well-made, heirloom quality goods that can be passed down through the generations, telling a rich story as it ages with you.

While our EDC community may be diverse in backgrounds, hobbies, interests, and occupations, we all share our passion for well-made gear. We are committed to bringing our community closer together, connecting talented product designers, makers, and enthusiasts alike.

How It Works

Okay, so how does it all work?! Each week, drop a small batch of limited & exclusive gear that we think you might enjoy. They've been carefully selected by myself and my team for high quality, refined aesthetics, and rugged durability. But watch out! Some of these items will sell out quickly. So if you want first dibs, be sure to check your inbox and be quick!

Our Promise

We're a small team and we're limited on resources. But we will do whatever we can to serve our community of EDC enthusiasts with the highest level of honesty and integrity.

We want you to shop with confidence so our Return Policy allows you to return any unused (new) item within 30 days of purchase unless otherwise stated. If you have any issues, feel free to reach out to us.

We also have a Frequently Asked Questions section where we answer our community's most common questions.

Lastly, I want to say thank you. By supporting us, you back not only the makers themselves, but also the community behind the everyday carry movement. Carry on!
