    So I've recently stepped up my edc game and started carrying a bag as well as what's in my pockets. I have purchased items from different stores online, but I see gear that some members carry not found at the particular sites I've visited. Anyone want to share their favorite edc gear sites/stores?

    Generally mine has been from maker specific websites, but I have bought a lot of stuff from a certain well-known auction site as well. In Canada, where you can't purchase direct from Surefire, I tend to get the lights I want that way. Facebook groups like EDC Underground, Slipjoint Paradigm and A-51 BST are great as well. Something in particular you are looking for?

    Most of my gear I've bought via Amazon.

    Jeff Bezos did not profit on my Prime membership last year, that's for sure! :D

    L'chaim!

    Haha that's awesome. So would you classify yourself as gear-a-holic or are you to the point of all out gear :censored:?

    Was meant to be gear w h o r e. But apparently that's a not nice word.

    UK-based, most of my purchases are from Amazon or Heinnie Haynes.

    Look into you local area soft-air-gun/war-buff-surplus store sites, a lot of edc-related classics (biners, pouches, belts etc) are trickling down that way, some owners are deep in the gear nerd-swamp and stock some high quality new and modern stuff.
    I'm not giving away my sources, but you can find some pretty slick milsurp from the cold war era that is still in it's original packaging. No collector value but if you're looking for stylish stuff (outerwear, shirts, leather gear etc) that can withstand a decent beating.

    +1 on Heinnie for EU residents, they've got basically everything covered with a lot of the "right"/hyped/good brands at decent prices.

    Don't underestimate non-edc stores and sourcing close to home, especially if you have stores dedicated to a particular scope of market. I always thought of EDC:er as specialist "jack of all trades", we try to get the toughest/best stuff from quality makers so deeply entrenched nerds are our teachers. Follow the nerds, find the cool stuff. :)

    If you want handmade/small artisan/crafty type stuff, go check the Etsy website.

    Hennies are fantastic, I use them almost exclusively.
    Their customer service is legendary.
