Although put together for this training, the loadout would serve well in any worst-case scenario event.

Essentially, the ruck and chest rig is a three-season bug out survival kit with a strong tactical emphasis.

[Videos] EDC Essentials Series: 2016

Every Day Carry (EDC) Series (Introduction)

Chris Tanner of PreparedMind101 starts off 2016 with a video series on how he chooses items for his EDC system. He’s motivated by the fact that many folks are just beginning their prep efforts … and also because so many folks are asking him what’s in his EDC.

But what works for him may not make sense for others. People have different skills, live in different parts of the country, have different jobs, and different levels of risk (acceptance or aversion).

The Introduction Video

With all that in mind, Tanner plans a multi-video series explaining how he decides what are the best EDC items for him. Based on a logical process, he shows how and why he chooses a particular tool.

That tool may not be the best one for your situation, but you can still use the same deductive thought process to choose what is best for you.

Watch Intro Video below for the complete explanation on what he’s trying to do. And as each video comes out, it will be added to this post.

And just like others in the family, he gets hungry, thirsty, and sometimes injures his paws. (Actually, no else in my family suffers paw injuries.)
