We are huge fans of adding a small EDC pouch to your loadout. Whether you clip it onto your belt, throw it in a cargo pocket or toss it into your backpack. Small EDC Pouches, like the Truckie, help keep things organized. And they establish a valuable "kit" within your everyday carry.
Building an EDC Pouch
If you're new to everyday carry (EDC), or just don't know what to use one of these handy pouches for, you're likely wondering what contents go into an EDC Pouch. That is really determined by what kind of kit you're wanting to put together....And the sky is the limit there!
But to help you out, we wanted to give you some sample EDC Pouch kits that we've carried over the years (and still alternate into our everyday carry systems today).
EDC Repair Kit
This is a kit that travels everywhere with me and easily stores into my EDC Backpack. It's my everyday carry repair kit. It has several small tools, or one primary tool like a multi tool, some kind of a light (I like a headlamp because it allows me to work hands-free), a knife sharpener to keep my knife blade(s) honed, and a few other maintenance items.
This type of kit is invaluable when you need to fix something or release your inner McGyver!
EDC First Aid Kit
Another kit I carry religiously is my EDC First Aid Kit. I have covered all of this in detail in another article, so I won't go too in-depth here. But this is a small, lightweight kit that contains all of the necessities I could need to make a bad situation better.

EDC Hygiene Kit
These small pouches/kits are awesome for building EDC Hygiene Kits. I personally like carrying an assortment of things that I use on daily basis. Such As: A small comb, a pair of clippers, dental picks, a travel size deodorant, beard oil, a comb, etc.
An EDC Hygiene Kit is invaluable for people who go into a lot of meetings or engagements with other people.
EDC Tech Kit
An EDC Tech Kit is awesome for people who spend a lot of time on their phone or computer. You'd be surprised how much you can fit into one of the small Truckie Pouches. Here are some common items I keep in my EDC Tech Kit:
- Small thumb drive
- Extra SD Cards for my camera
- A very small notebook and micro pen
- Charger for my phone
Adding a small tech kit into your EDC can be extremely helpful when you're running out of juice on your phone. Or if you just want to drown out the noise at the coffee shop with some tunes or cat videos on YouTube.
EDC Dump Pouch
I sometimes use the Truckie as a general EDC dump pouch. It will easily accommodate my EDC knife, flashlight and Sergeant wallet (or Rookie wallet) when I want to toss them into one condensed location.
