    Hi guys, I was just wondering if there is a Online Site that carries EDC Gear.
    Do you have favorite sites that cater to the EDC community?

    Im very new to EDC'ing.
    Any direction would help. I dont have alot of time to search the web as I use to.

    Like are there sites that i can go to and find an Altoid type container filled with fire starter gear or survival gear?

    Thank you guys.

    There was a thread on here somewhere ... maybe one of our more computer literate members can locate it. Meanwhile, first off, I find a lot of the stuff for EDC from right on here at Jon's "EDC Forum Store" ... the link is at the top of our home screen. Next, check some of the big national chains (Amazon, REI, Cabelas, even eBay).

    Then there are the smaller outfits such as Milspec Monkey, County Comm (only buy from these guys if you have more than a few items, since they charge a flat fee for shipping), Unique Titanium, Fenix Outfitters, ITS Tactical, Survival Resources, Canteen Shop, Knife Center, etc., etc.

    OK, that should give you some ideas.

    CatsTide, I think we can list them, but not post links or endorse them. But, I've shopped at all of the ones I listed so I think that's OK. I'm going to 'report' myself and hopefully get a clarification.

    You can list as long as you don't post specific prices from items coming from that specific store

    That's what I think, too, Southpaw ... But, I've 'turned myself in' ... let's see what the mods say.

    I've definitely gotten warnings for less than that.

    i get much of my stuff either direct from the maker or from Blade HQ. reasonable prices/shipping practices. wide selection ranging from budget friendly to bank breaking and all points in between

    JS Burlys is a good place to look too - shopping there supports the forums and they have some exclusive items you won't find elsewhere.

    all the fire-starting tins I've seen have been homemade kits.

    I've bought from most of those places.

    Really....just hang around and you'll see stuff.

    YouTube reviewers and lurking on the forum have made me buy a lot of stuff.

    Most of my stuff comes from south american river boat, bladehq, and makers' websites.

    another great place is the BST forum on this site.

    LOTS of great items and deals going on there.

    plus, the items are from members on this site so you know they're well-taken-care-of and loved.

    Southpaw is correct...
    Emphasis on the last sentence;)
    Actually, I'd like to bring in xbanker on ths one because after the last edit of the Rules changed Deal Spotting as defined as citing a seller AND price, to citing a seller "with or without" price.

    Seems a little confusing to me, so lets here it from xbanker :D

    Anyway, yes, its perfectly fine to share the names of places to buy EDC gear. Prices, promo codes, and special deals on shipping, however, are not allowedd in conjunction with the vendors name.
    Not allowed:
    "I got my widget from Widget.com for $X.xx, exactly, with free shipping when I used promo code "malarky-code"
    Allowed:
    "You can get those at store name here (as long as its without the whole ".com" thing ;) Rule 11)
    ...also...
    "I got mine on the web for $X.xx exactly"
    ...or even...
    "I got mine, after a Google search, with free shipping"
