    Not so much Every Day Carry kit, but Every Day Car kit, a small socket set from Draper; just over a week ago, the turbo on my car blew the output hose off. Apparently it's a known issue, happens rarely, but is easily fixed - IF you have the right tools to hand.

    I managed to get the car home (carefully), and repaired the fault shortly thereafter, but it occurred to me that if I'd had the right tools with me, I'd have been able to fix the problem (and others) there and then. So, my extensive and expensive tools will remain at home, and in the car, I'll now have this kit, that stays in the car :)

    Technically, maybe not. Practically, absolutely.

    What I carry on my person is mostly for convenience and situations that occur with regular frequency, but for real problem solving I usually have to retreat to my backpack or car kit.

    I got a magnetic battery charger from CountyComm that can also act as a powerbank using a rechargeable battery.

    yet another nontactical backpack.. Left my converse edc bag in the US when I got covid stuck there.
    honestly bought this because it looks like a non descreet poor man's goruck bag.

    This new Yaesu FT-70DR just arrived. Just an outstanding radio for a handheld in this price range.
