While others are busy browsing summer beach rentals, some of us get ready to return the call of our hunting heritage and get ready to chance with the wolves for existence. We reflect back to those men and women, our folks, who taught us the skills needed to be accepted by the wild. For me, it was my dyed-in-the-wool Wisconsin deer hunting family. It was them who taught me the ways of the wild.
Back in the city on my desk in front of my iMac, I'm still chasing away wolves. The primal call for existence, the survival instinct, and the readiness to grab the spear and attack the predators are ever present. It's in us all. Or how would one explain our willingness to gear ourselves with survival tools even when we're in the city? From Swiss knives to rugged phone cases to wallets, we're constantly preparing ourselves with better tools. There's an ever-increasing demand for EDC tools.
What Defines EDC?In its most basic interpretation, EDC has become a catchall phrase for essentials that you always carry no matter where you're going. So, does that make a keyring an EDC gear? Technically, yes. Anything that you never leave your home without constitutes 'EDC gear'.
However, in recent years, the scope of 'EDC gear' seems to have narrowed down to tools rather than everything. Wallets were never a part of the EDC gear until recently when the design of men's wallets underwent a radical transformation. Now, we have wallets that have secured their place among the top EDC gear.
GRID Metal Wallet. #1 Survival EDC Wallet
This wallet literally changed the way we used to view men's wallets. The slim metal cardholder ranks as an apocalyptic gear alongside metal bunkers and survival knives. The best metal wallet of all has the construction of an armored tank. The solid metal body comfortably houses up to 12 cards and the flex money clip at the back allows one to carry enough cash for a few days. What's more, is that the metal wallet gives you a warship RFID shield that skimmers cannot break through even with the most powerful and sophisticated transmitters.
