    What´s up guys?
    I´m new to the forum, even though I´ve been doing EDC for 7 years.
    I thought I was alone until I came across a bunch of EDC videos on youtube like 3 weeks ago.
    I´m not an expert on outdoors or anything, but I like to be preparred and have decent gear that might help me in some situations.
    I´ve made a few friends this past weeks and it´s been a blast, I´ve learn a lot.
    The 2 pieces of gear I like the most would be knives and flashlights, I´ve had a thing for flashlights since a was kid.
    I still don´t have my firearms license, but I hope to I can make the arrangements soon.
    My EDC is more directed towards an urban environment by the way.

    I´m also working on a BOB, but it´s like 25%, still debating on what I need and what don´t, since I live in the caribbean and hurricanes it´s my biggest concern.

    It's a great bag but don't put a lot of weight on it because the single shoulder strap will kill you. I carry an Ipad 2 a first aid kit and a Maxpedition Fatty Organizer and it works great for me.
