Urban EDC Backpack

http://www.youtube.com/user/TheUrbanPrepper Definitions: Everyday carry (EDC) or Every Day Carry refers to a small collection of tools, equipment and supplies that are carried on a daily basis to assist in tackling situations ranging from the mundane to the disastrous. The term EDC also refers to the philosophy or spirit of 'preparedness' that goes along with the selection and carrying of these items. Implicit in the term is the sense that an EDC is an individual's personal selection of equipment, arrived at after deliberation, rather than a standardized kit. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everyday_carry ) 2. An Urban area is characterized by higher population density and vast human features in comparison to areas surrounding it. Urban areas may be cities, towns or conurbations, but the term is not commonly extended to rural settlements such as villages and hamlets. 1.

Compartments: In an effort to keep my Urban EDC Backpack organized, I use individual compartments for various categories that I find to be useful. Each compartment is color coded with an ID tag on the compartment container. The colors of the compartment ID’s are reflected in the compartment listings in this document. The colors used are more for others to use to easily identify the compartments, in the case that I am unable to access my backpack. For example, if I was injured or was trying to describe to someone from a distance on what compartment I need, I could tell them to get the “yellow” first aid compartment out of my backpack.
