    I'm wondering why a lot of us joined edcf. I personally joined because I love reading everyones posts and like minded while differing views. Everyone is pretty much helpful and at times feels like a "family" for lack of a better word. I don't participate as much as I use to but still love seeing whats going on, on a daily basis. Anyway look forward to seeing some responses.

    Cordura addiction for me. I travel for a living so I'm attached to my gear, and a bug out bag is essential when I'm at work.

    I like seeing what tools and items folks in other parts of the world find useful and rely on.

    I've always found multi tools, knives, flashlights etc. interesting and when I found out "edc" was a thing I wanted to see others edc to get ideas.

    I don't participate much but I browse often and like to see there are other people like me.

    I originally joined to read about edc and get my gear together. Haven't been here in ages, but decided to give it a go again. This time I'm looking for cool hanks (handkerchiefs) to get ideas. I spent easter trying to make some for myself.

    I was not on multitool or candle forums, no idea what brought me here. I probably joined when I got my new truck. ???

    I kept coming across discussions when googling various edc items. It's always interesting seeing what/how others are carrying as well as new to market gear. I like it here

    I'd been lurking for years because of the quality of information on here and decided it would be nice if I contributed as a way of saying thanks for all the awesome stuff others post.

    I heard there was free cookies...still waiting for my share! ;)

    Other than that, I like the variety of edc systems here. YouTube can get a little stale at times.

    Yes, this! Depending on what one does for a living, where one lives, etc., edc varies, but everyone carries certain things everyday. It is interesting to see what everyone carries, and I love seeing others' hacks and DIY. Was a scout and like being prepared for most anything. Learn so much here.

    Like so many little boys, I was hooked the first time I saw Batman's belt. I immediately started building my own kit. Fortysomething years ago that was. And all these new toys and things! What a time to be alive for a gear oriented adult male!

    Joining a forum was a logical step. I post on and off, but I always come back to check the trends and new items.
